    Ye but daughters got me screwfix vouchers so thought I might like to try one of the multi tools and hence being drawn to the budget one but low and behold it's not there (even if you add on the vat incase they were trying that on, it's still wrong)

  9. I agree, I can see the OP's link to the Screwfix website but that's it, am I missing something?

    My point was that at the top of the page I linked to there is a box in which it says "our top rated multi-toolS from onlt £42.99" within that box is a pic of what most would consider a multi tool (one that takes the vibrating saw blades/sanders pads) But as we know SOME adds will quote a price with pic but (usually in small print) will have something like "does not include item shown...) So where on there "multi-tool pages is the £42.99 tool ?????
    And yes the pic does seam (if you zoom in) to be of the same machine that is at £49.99.
     
  11. Aah, that makes sense now, if you click on the link with a mobile device you don't get any banners, just the listings in ascending price order.

    Maybe this reply is off topic :dontknow:

    I got one of the energer ones last year (sure I paid about 38 quid or so) to help with some awkward bits on a laminate flooring job.

    Wasn't expecting much really, but the time it saved me compared to using hand tools (as I was intending to) it paid for itself at least twice over.

    I've only used it once since, but it's become a backup tool for those little bits that are time consuming using other methods.

    I bought a Netto version a few years ago to take some windows and doors out, just plunge cut into the frame and get the jemmy in and it's been used by myself on flooring and lent out to cut skirting bottoms and it's still going strong. They are invaluable once you have one and I can't praise their usefulness any higher. If it broke tomorrow I would get the Screwfix version in a blink.

    Have just sent email to queer the page/add. Lets see what they say.
    At the < £50 price range I don't expect a work horse! but would like something that might last long enough to see if such a tool would be useful.
    Tool station do 2 in the <£50 AND there not Silverline !!
    Was hoping that the copper coloured finger shaped attachment (think they are tungsten carbide and for stone/tile) might have worked for getting into pitted rust areas.

    It should come up on their screen when you give them your details at the counter.
