It was last week when 15% off code was on and through buyaparcel
Was that using the eBay code and through FFX on eBay? For that price I’ll pick one up if they drop that low again. Was gonna go brushless but can’t justify the extra cost for something I’ll very rarely use
Really waiting for a dtd171 for sub 140
Saying that I just checked and the DTW190Z is £70 on the website so with discount it’s £66 but I got it off eBay a few weeks back for £53
Been a while since I ordered something but last time i did I’m sure it was cheaper on eBay, maybe a few £ or so. I know sellers like to hike the price up now though to make it look like your saving more (fierce)
Doesn't work - where did it come from and are there conditions? Code FFX975 still gives 5% off if anyone needs it...
Not working here...
I wouldn't bother with them, had a bosch 18v drill cancelled that was posted last week for £91.38...said it was incorrectly priced but were happy to take my money.. The same thing happened earlier in the year with a dewalt drill deal.. So I won't use them again.
I had the complete opposite recently. Such a nightmare trying to get something exchanged. Don’t know if during lockdown they had less customer service people on but they repeatedly didn’t read my emails properly and just sent generic reply’s. So frustrating, took weeks to sort out. Was sorted instantly when I got through to a manager tho.
Ordered some toughbuilt c550 trestles yesterday with discount, here today (pair) 20 less than amazon!
I've also seen them do it on ebay items. Checking my basket both items have gone up in price. It will be interesting to see if the price drops after the discount has finished.
The best, I'd say, for times where you only need one or two items. Free P&P on orders with no minimum value often has me ordering little bits and bobs from them, and I've never had an order i've needed to return or arrived damaged / missing etc.
Interesting to read. I know they, along with many others, do it on eBay when there's a promotion (presumably because of fee's), but isn't something I'd expect on their website. Perhaps they've a profit margin they NEED to reach to make selling certain items worth their while. Thanks for the heads up.
Do you know the torque setting for tightening the disc up by any chance? Thanks
And the Bosch 240v version with X-LOCK tool-less disc change for cheaper too: https://www.mytoolshed.co.uk/bosch-gwx-750-115mm-angle-grinder-240v?utm_source=google_shopping&of_tid=MFRWG5B5GI2DGJTGMVSWISLEHUYSM4DSN5SESZB5GY3DAMJR&adGroupId=58616983357&device=c&wgu=266015_116019_16235240497057_3942a600d3&wgexpiry=1631300049&source=webgains&siteid=116019
240v for cheaper
I have the 240v version works alot better on the UK mains.... lol Nice small size as well, not like the cheaper ones that are so thick you can't really hold very comfortably
Technically you are right. I have a load of blue stuff but when it comes to delicate stuff like driving screws into things i care about my Green PSB 1800 drill driver is a much better choice. Blue can be a bit brutal on some things lol
Nice deal, thanks OP. The FFX site was very glitchy for me; I tried Firefox and Opera and it wouldn't let me use Paypal on either, had to pay by debit card. Can't complain about their service though, ordered on Saturday and delivered on Sunday! (y)
The point is that the 3Ah batteries limited the amount of current that could be delivered to the tool. So Makita didn't incorporate a protection circuit. When they started selling bigger batteries they included a 3rd contact and a thermistor.
Tools take the current they need from a battery. The battery can't stuff more current through them than they need.
I think you are missing the point the B series tools were designed when the maximum current and the maximum heat output were defined by the battery. With the bigger batteries that isn't the case now. A 6Ah battery will supply far more current, heat and sustained voltage than a B series tool was designed for. The newer D series tools have the 3rd connector that dials back the voltage and current to stop the tool and battery from going out of its sustainable range.
Sure, but it is not a necessity. You're unlikely to overdischarge as the batteries cut out at a certain voltage automatically. You're unlikely to overheat the battery or tool either under normal use, or overload.
If I could just say, "Alexa, drill my fence and put up the lights" and it'd be right on this deal XD
I looked at some reviews on this as I was also intrigued! It apparently has a nice little GPS feature where it will alert you if your tools are outside a specific areas. Good for thefts I suppose.
You can also customise the tool for the job you are going. So let's say you are driving 100s of deck screws, all the same screw and into the same material. You can set the tool to the best combination of torque, starting speed, finishing speed etc and then just drive them all in exactly the same each time without thinking about it
I think one cool feature is you can lock them
Bluetooth connected power tools? What on earth is the point of that?
Apologies, I wasn't clear enough in my post. I'm pretty sure that the in store deal doesn't have a planer in it. I take my toddler to have a look at it every time we go to Costco, as he likes touching the tools! It's always a massive annoyance that Costco's online and in-store stuff is so different though. Not being able to check in-store prices/selection is a pain.
You could be right, although the online deals are different to in store deals. This was in store deal. Good price for this deal which is posted though. Heat
I'm pretty sure that the Costco set doesn't have a planer in it, and has different TSTAK box selection. They don't seem to list it on their website, just a similar set that comes in some Tough System boxes.
I could be incorrect, costco have the same bundles for
Hmm. It’s an ok deal. Can get the pieces separately for about the same price all in give or take a tenner. If you need it buy it, but I’d hold out if I wasn’t in a rush. Edit - Forgot about the torch… good deal overall for all those pieces.
I carry the Manager on my keys every day, that's the best 58mm Vic. for me. I don't think I have enough use for the extra tools on the Mini Champ to justify the extra width. Especially since I've been putting off the purchase of a Victorinox Bantam Alox for so long. This is an great deal though and I am slightly tempted to buy, never seen this Vic. cheaper.
Kitchen knives, bottles and screwdrivers are preferred it seems. Terrible really
Kids in Hackney would love this..
That looks nice! (highfive)
Ha. Yeah. Just made some wooden scales for my 20+ year old SAK as not available now. It's well smart
Yup, probably the best value drill when it's like £40. In 4 years of DIY use mine has only ever failed at drilling a 10mm hole through 16inches of solid concrete (had to give up and go get the SDS) everything else it's been good for, including mixing loads of grout and adhesive.
482 is a beast IMO really well rounded
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/391901643380 Slightly cheaper here with £18 off currently
Good price (especially given the price of batteries currently), ideal set for any serious DIY user. 3ah batteries give plenty of run time for normal tasks and only take 20 mins to charge with the fast charger and Makitas budget brushless drill is actually much less powerful than the 482.
Just ordered yesterday - delivered today (Sunday). Excellent service from FFX. Good solid boxes. Came with foam insert for SSD drill (which I don't have).
Cheers OP, just arrived today with an insert and fits my Makita gear albeit very snuggly but seems secure (y)
Now £17.50. thanks OP
Thanks OP, just ordered as my cheap cheerful Aldi combi drill, impact driver and multi-tool (also hotukdeals impulse/discretionary/non-essential purchases) are arriving soon and I've nowhere to put them.
