Drummond metalwork Lathe £950, also
several lathe beds in stock
Power tools are a major headache. New ones should carry warranties but the wholesalers do not have to take them back. Old ones tend to be better but all I can do is test that they run. Contrary to popular opinion, the law states that I do not need to P.A.T. test every old electrical appliance (unless I am planning to use it in public). My obligation is to check visually and ensure that it runs. I do not check them under load so occasionally they will not behave properly. Having said that most items from auction are coming with PAT test labels. I offer a no quibble returns policy within a reasonable period of time. (PAT testing does not guarantee operation)
As stated elsewhere I do not usually deal in battery operated tools unless they are new or come in a job lot and appear to be OK. Battery life is about 2 years, even now. Nickel Cadmium is now obsolete due to its disposal. There is a metal Oxide replacement but as yet is it not common. Lithium is now almost standardised but much more expensive. If you are buying a new Drill/ Driver you want to be spending at least £60-£80 preferably with a spare battery. I am now finding some chargers, some are even Lithium, but all chargers tend to be brand, even battery specific so please bring in what you want to charge. Please note that unless I am certain of the provenance I will not have any of the major brands like Makita or even DeWalt. Please see below for anything I have at present
My new power tools are domestic orientated despite some of the packaging. The angle grinders will only run for about 10 minutes before you have to let them cool off. NB I cannot warranty against misuse.
If you are looking for new Bosche or Makita, go elsewhere. I can get them but I doubt you will like the price. If you find cheap Makita chances are it has been stolen, and for that reason I do not buy second hand Makita tools unless the ownership is certain.
I have a good selection of 1/3 sheet sanders, delta and/ or mouse sanders, drills, rip/circular saws and Jigsaws. I usually have new angle and bench grinders, and now I am carrying a circular saw, orbital sanders, reciprocating saws and pillar drills as well. At any time I might have larger machines like bench saws, or Chop / Radial Saws. I also carry heat guns. and usually have electric planers.
I carry accessories for power tools including drill bits, grinding discs, rip or jigsaw blades and various grinding and polishing bits for drills or mini-grinders (Dremel is a trade name)
