Clarke METALWORK BENCH GRINDER/SAND BELT 6 inch, Just not great.

The grinding wheel sucked and the machine died within a year, it wasn’t even used that much because it was weaker than my other belt sander, but i tried using it there today and the damn thing just refused to start. So i won’t be buying anymore clarke products. Make sure you have a spanner… Continue reading Clarke METALWORK BENCH GRINDER/SAND BELT 6 inch, Just not great.

Silverline 656997 Soldering Iron, not its fault i can’t solder

This soldering iron is brilliant value. It might be cheap but it’s still sturdy, heats up quickly and perfect when you need a fine tipped soldering iron for detailed work. The iron doesn’t have a posh stand, but it does come with a piece of metal which quickly folds out so you have somewhere to… Continue reading Silverline 656997 Soldering Iron, not its fault i can’t solder

Poweplus Powerplus 600 Watt Circular Mini Plunge Saw, Excellent value with good accessories. Start and safety release switch could be friendlier, but soon acquired the “knack”

BLACK+DECKER 3.6 V Lithium-Ion Cordless Screwdriver : Certainly does what is expected. Nearly all good.

Read the reviews, bought it and like it. As they said, the direction switch is almost invariably knocked into neutral but it becomes second nature to correct it, the torque is good and the battery holds its charge well. The stand just has a ‘power on’ light and does not indicate when the driver is… Continue reading BLACK+DECKER 3.6 V Lithium-Ion Cordless Screwdriver : Certainly does what is expected.

Draper 50021 350-Watt 230-Volt Belt and Disc Sander : Incorrect size discs supplied with Sander

Arrived the next day on free postage so it’s hard to fault the service. For the price it is a good machine and so far has done everything i would expect. If i needed one again i would probably make the same choice. When we got a replacement, my husband wanted exactly the same model,… Continue reading Draper 50021 350-Watt 230-Volt Belt and Disc Sander : Incorrect size discs supplied with Sander
