Perfect timing, I was looking for a decent saw for tomorrow. As a bonus, the closest tool shop to me is Screwfix. Voted hot!
All Tools Discounts, Offers and Sale - March 2019
Possibly- except no mention of the free drill set specifically which makes me think maybe not. I did search in case it had already been posted - will let the site mods decide either way.
Yeah, my fault. Thanks
That's the price before VAT. With the VAT It's £119.99 Thanks for posting, hest from me OP :)
The price is 99.99£ on my mobile phone.
Is this not a repost? https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/makita-18v-li-ion-combi-drill-kit-11999-its-3195822
It’s not this one is it? ffx.co.uk/tools/product/Dewalt-Dcn692P2-5035048467763-18V-2X5.0-Li-Ion-Brushless-Xr-Nail-Gun-Kit Any thoughts on this guys Is this a good deal ? Thanks
Thanks I would if I paid for fixings . The company I sub contract to provide them
If it uses the same nails and gas as the original paslode (im350) then take a look at bulldog fixings they are the cheapest place for nails, been using them for around 2 years without any issues
I have both and they are great.
I also have a bostich 1st fix which is basically the same gun at the Hitachi and it work very well bit heavy for all day every day use I have it as a back up gun
Tbh for DIY use most of these drills will do since it's unlikely you will be overworking them daily. I managed to get the green 18V Bosch combi drill a while back for £47 honestly the drill has served me well professionally and has now been passed onto someone else and still works. They go on sale once a year for around £50 2 batteries (the blue 12V version too, I have owned both) which imo are very well built, lightweight reliable an powerful enough for most DIY applications like hanging a mirror or assembling furniture.
Are brushed drills not popular? What would you recommend for general home DIY? Spoilt for choice to be honest! Not sure I want to spend £80+ for a DeWalt...
Yes, definitely it says in the title "Drill Driver". Means it has the ability to drill and drive screws with the clutch settings. No percussive action tho unlike the Stanley FatMax.
The Stanley drill has hammer action tho right? Seeing as it's a combi drill. This doesn't.
"Manufacturer Guarantee - 2 Year Manufacturer's Guarantee (T&Cs Apply)" Screwfix are usually pretty good when it comes to returns as far as I'm aware.
anyone wanting ck tools contact me. I have a garage full of them. Need to sell them. mainly electricians sets
For occasional use, they do the trick as well. Wish Pocophone was £1 as well.
Poundland ones are like Pocophone quality wise.
Poundshops also sell £1 version on this, tkmaxx sells 9.99 version of this. But their quality is as per their price.
Not available Oos
The one on the right is usually £6) so hot from me
lxt are worth the extra cost over these
Be aware this is the G series, not LXT so the number of compatible tools is severely limited.
Freat deal might treat myself
This is the one I ordered. Had to wait a while for it but really impressed for the money. Not sure what difference there is between them both?
some of these models have issues with chuck wobble. If you do opt for this check how good yours is before using it.
Yeah. I got that for £59.99
This looks like a pretty CARP quality toolkit. And there are not really very many useful items there, even.
Cold How ever you dress it up its been posted https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/5-off-25-amazon-with-code-bigthanks-today-only-1903-amazon-3199633
Are these the smallest versions of the ranges or any good?
I bought mine last year and it's not bad. First thing I done was change to a Freud blade. Nice clean cuts. It's a PIA to assemble.
Watch out for chuck wobble on these, it is shockingly common and more often than not warranty doesn't cover it as it's considered to be " within tolerances".
Haven't checked, but apology due anyway... Model purchased was PSB 18 LI-2, not GSB But it was £100, last week, Canterbury store
It's £150 on their site?
Hate combis and forstner bits.
Very good stuff. Heat added
Can drill through steel up to 13mm thick My draper stormforce 240v can only go through 8mm.. and it cost more :( Heat added (begrudgingly (cheeky) ) (lol)
Nice one. Have some heat 🔥
Good Find @PennyTrader (highfive)
Ordered and heat added, Now just need a deal on impact bits and sockets.
Yeah it is, but if you put another item in the basket it adds a delivery charge. ;) Hence the Code.
Isn't this free del ATM?
try this code...RADKEY-DEL (gets you free delivery ;) )
Lol I can foresee a 5 mm Chunk being excavated from bottom door You can do lots damage quite quickly with electric plane
Hand planes are great if you have no power near by. That said they get blocked very easily and can be difficult to set the blade to how you want it and generally can be very frustrating. An electric plane is another thing all together. Very easy to set the depth, consistent cut all the way along and with a small amount of practice anyone can become pretty good with them. That is not the same with a manual tool. If planing the side of a door is what you want to do and there is paint on it - go electric. Its easy and cheap and even when you screw the blade up you just turn it over on most of them.
Bought one for my wife as she broke two sanders and spends more on electricity sanding stuff than the price of this tool
Thank you very much op been keeping my eye out for a deal on one of these for a while now
You might be better off using a wood file/rasp. You will be able to remove only the area that sticks.
I have this larger stapler, and yes, leaving imprints is a problem, and it too, doesn't drive home all the nails and staples. Have to go around with a hammer and knock them in. However imprints in wood can be somewhat reversed by adding a little water.
I've just googled mine. I thought it was a cheap one! amazon.co.uk/s/?ie=UTF8&keywords=tacwise&index=aps&tag=hydrukspg-21&ref=pd_sl_7pk5f0wad4_e&adgrpid=58683902092&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvadid=259099255122&hvpos=1t1&hvnetw=g&hvrand=15683093185253859748&hvqmt=e&hvdev=m&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=1006765&hvtargid=kwd-300486345589
I found one of these in my shed last week and its scary! I only touched the trigger and it was like a semi auto rifle. The speed the pins fired out was a shock. I tried to mend the roof of my bird box and the force of it sent half the roof flying clean off (lol) (lol) Its a Tacwise
Slightly OT but has anyone got or used a Lidl or Aldi pneumatic staple gun at all?? I'd love the dewalt nailers but have to be realistic its never going to be viable for me to buy them, so air seems to be the way to go...
My research found a bigger version of this stapler they sometimes offer, PHET 25. But previous comments on cheap staplers still apply.
I scored this at £35 in Norwich but was the last one. There was a labld for this 16v drill @14.99 but no stock...
@morrig They had 2 of these in the Halewood branch the other day. Not sure if theyre still there though? The Garston branch is awful for reductions, City Centre and Halewood ones seem to be the best (y)
That's because each store manager has the ability to reduce the price of a special buy where it's not selling well and has been in stock for a number of weeks. It's up to the manager to decide when or if it appropriate to reduce the item. Aldi head office sometimes reduce the price nationwide but only usually where stock numbers are high across a large amount of stores which is rare.
Thanks for the pic - updated :)
No red plugs left but loads of brown, shall I send them to you?
But no idea about the drills.
Yeah sure (lol)
Tell that to auto correct....
Agreed. Great drill bits.
How do you get it for £24?
This is the same unit as the evolution branded saws stands too (that some b&q dropped to 20 notes from the standard 60... But mine wouldn't :()
Bosch you are more likely to see used by professionals, more down to build quality and it may take rough treatment longer out and about; and little details like unstable ground adjustment, end holders, and it also extends a considerably wider than the workzone. The workzone will be built to perform if possible as good as a mid range device but at value end price for a limited time at Lidl/ALD. Aldi give 3 or 5 year warranty on these types of tools so that should reassure buyers. Consumer/diy are more likely to have these kept in the shed/at home for the occasional project, compared to some brands that may be taken out on worksites all the time
Wondering how that compares to the Bosch GTA-2600 what is double the price.
Going to give this a shot and the mitre saw given the now 5 year warranty that think used to be 3.
This is the same as the 'titan' version in Screwfix which is £59.99...which I just spent ... Very solid and heavy, the side extensions are twin chromed tubes that I guess will rust quickly ( never seen Chinese chrome that lasts) if kept in damp shed. Use furniture polish when putting away. ( Grease would be better...but with all that saw dust....) . The clamping screws are plastic capped and quite vulnerable/ delicate. Can't see them lasting long if it is moved around lots Excellent for the money though.
Ordered one for the bedroom. And one for the bathroom. And one for the cellar. Edit. One for the woods.
It's rebadged Einhell tools, so it's not really any more concern than other brands at this level.
I would avoid any of the Ozito range if you don't get batteries with them/don't already have batteries. Now Homebase has changed hands again all the Australian brands are being reduced and sold through so might become difficult to get batteries/replacement parts etc.
Really wanted this they also have the kit with battery and charger for £85 in clearance in the Farnham, Surrey Branch probably others too. I found a black and decker scorpion for £22.50 much larger cutting blade and worked a treat for what I needed it for might be some more in random Homebase
Here, this one comes with a battery. Hurry. Only 9 left at time of posting https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07KBG9N3Q
