What is a good (cheap? reliable?) online site to order power tools
from?

I'm after a new cordless electric screwdriver but am not close to any
shops likely to stock a good range.


Thanks,
Phil


Screwfix are as good as any others.

I'd happily second that.

A drill/driver? If so try the B&Q PP Pro range.

Slightly outside your normal sphere of bargain basement tools...

unifix ain't cheap - just about every one of the tools I compared (like with
like) with the dm site came out more expensive on unifix.

Just a thought, Homebase have a sale on at the moment - well they
did on Sunday. Anyhow they have end of line Bosch tools going half
price at the moment.

The Canterbury branch apparently had loads of them.

Their pro range is quite competitive and they do have a bargain basement
range too. They are far better for fixings than Screwfix.

It was the pro stuff that I was comparing. They seemed competitive, but
then you needed to add VAT onto their quoted prices.

Was 10 to 15% more expensive on a lot of the stuff when that was taken into
account.

Just glancing at them in my local branch, it appeared to be all bottom of
the range stuff - maybe even specially bought in. They had nothing I
fancied, regardless of price.
