    This package contains both the pencil and a marker pen with two sides (fine and thick). The marker pen is a bit messy, especially when you first use it, but it works very well otherwise. The pencil is awesome, nice thick leads which can be finely sharpened with the integrated pencil sharpener. What is really a plus point for this set is the fact that it has a thin neck, which enables you to mark inside holes very accurately, even deep holes. I am happy with this set, it has already replaced the Tork Craft Automatic Carpenter’s pencil that I bought as it is more suited to the work I do.

    A nice machine. Takes some getting used to. Hard to master the drill sharpening. I struggled with the chisel angel as well. The instructions not great but all in all a nice addition to my workshop

    Great pencil. Easy to use. Would be great if you could buy more leads. Cheap enough if you can’t.

    Nice tool for removing grout. Makes a terrible task more bearable. You have to work carefully with it to ensure it doesn’t wear out too quickly. Neede 2 to finish my shower.

    Great saw for the price. Got mine Nov 2017. Mine came squared up out of the box. I have re-squared twice since and it’s easy enough to do. Used mine to cut 3 bedrooms worth of laminate flooring out of the box and it didn’t hiccup once. The blade needed sharpening though. My laser line has dimmed a bit which is probably from leaving it on while doing other work and I was pleasantly surprised to find out the replacement is only R125. Metabo South Africa staff have been very helpful along the way too.
