    Bought this glue bottle online earlier this year. It works okay but tends to give your hands a workout if the glue is a bit thick.

  • @stuart-guy I think it may be compatible. These stands are normally “universal” in their application, i.e. you can use it for a mitre saw, cut off saw, etc. The T4W team should be able to confirm or suggest an alternative.

    I have a set of these that I bought online. It is amazing when used for glue-ups on wider boards. The clamping pressure is even and it holds everything in place like a good quality corset. (Note: I cannot vouch for how things look when a corset is removed!) These clamps are especially useful with cutting board glue ups.

  • Local suppliers of the ” big” brands don’t import carry cases because of cost and space in containers. I’ve fought with many of them over the years because they expect me to buy an expensive tool and give it to me in a box. That’s like buying a Ferrari that is parked at the road side with a for sale sign on the window. I speak under correction but I think only Festool offers cases with everything.

  • You should get this if you’re cutting boards, etc. This set is well worth it. You won’t be sorry.

  • Last one for the day! The pics are worth 1000 words each so I won’t bore you. This is a used DHP 482 set, comes with battery, charger, drill, clip. The drill and battery has been used but the condition of both are excellent. This comes with the case, insert and a manual (not included in the pic but I know it’s in the cupboard). Bare tool goes for about R2500 (I think) but I’ll let this set go for R3500. For info, this battery is about 5 months old (BL1830) and still holds it’s charge perfectly. The tools were used for weekend DYI stuff around the house (mickey mouse things to be honest) so neither of them know hard work. Get in touch! cofmdemde

  • Hi guys, I’ve got the Bosch GBH 2-28 for sale. This one is brand new, it hasn’t been used but I changed the plug on it when I got home from the shop (old habit – the cord is still rolled up like I bought it). I’m down sizing at the moment due to time and space constraints and would like to find a new home for this drill. All the specs are on this link: http://www.bosch-professional.com/za/en/rotary-hammer-with-sds-plus-gbh-2-28-f-131445-0611267600.html
    It comes with carry case, depth gauge, side handle, cloth and a manual in different languages (I think it has different languages – I’m a guy so I haven’t read it!) Willing to let this one go for R2800. This is at least R400 less than retail. Reasonable offers will be considered. davmdemdedavcofcof

  • Hi all,

    I’ve got a Makita DTM50 Multi-tool for sale. Tool is in excellent condition since it was bought for 1 project last year, used over a weekend and stored. It comes with the Makita optional extras (adaptor, blades, sanding pads, adaptor, sanding disks, etc.) plus charger. Accessories and charger is valued at over R2000. No battery included (battery was stolen…). R3200 and it’s yours!

  • “Bare tool” means no battery or charger included. The unit is brand new with all its packaging and accessories (where applicable); there’s just no battery and charger in the box.

    Hi T4W team, I’m not receiving the W3 specials regularly via email. Can you please confirm that the mailing list is working and can we have all W3 specials on a separate web page for all to find? It may encourage more users to sign up if they can see the different types of weekly specials.

    • Good morning @mornem we have added your email address to our mailing list. Thank you for the suggestion, we will look into creating this page and revert back to you shortly.

  • @sajid-amajee I have a few spare blades. If you can send me your address (securely somehow) I’ll send you a blade

    MITREBOX MTS METAL WITH SAW 550MM

  • Hey there @mornem , the Precision Squares are better built and made to be more precise and accurate that the Workshop Square. These precision squares are more ideal for checking and setting up machines whereas the workshop squares serve a general purpose.

    Hi guys, I’m looking for a bit of advice regarding blades. I’ve got a Makita MLT100 and I (sometimes) get burn for no reason. It’s not consistently happening, i.e. I’ll rip/crosscut a few pieces – no problem. Next piece has some burn marks. There’s no strain on the motor that I can pick up (either pushing wood too hard or motor noticeably slowing down) so I’m starting to think my multi-purpose blades (t/craft) may need some looking at. I use the aluminium blade (80T), cross cut (60T) and I’ve bought another contractors blade with thin kerf. Any suggestions for a different type of blade to rip hardwoods, ply and occasional softwoods? Regards, Morné

  • What’s the difference between this and the other 100mm square?

    Got these clamps since I don’t always have an extra pair of hands. Don’t let the size fool you – these clamps definitely get the job done.

    Based on the feedback from all the experienced users over here, I went ahead and bought this saw. Works well out of the box and the calibration needed is minimal. I noticed that the laser needed slight adjustment but that’s not a train smash. The saw works really well and packs a punch for it’s size. The only “bad” thing I’ve found is that the positive stops don’t always lock in; this may be because the rail is still new or needs a bit of lube. Overall, very good value for money compared to other brand offerings of the same size.

  • Morning @mornem You are correct. We were running the machine on Special at R3,399.00 with a recommended retail of R4,059.00. We have extended this for Black Friday to R2,899.00. So it is +- R1100 cheaper than recommended retail, and +- R500 cheaper than the special we were running

    Metabo KGS 216 M Compound Crosscut & Mitre Saw

    • Morning @gareth, thanks for clarified discount methodology. I will not be buying this saw from T4W anyway since there is a local retailer who’s normal selling price is cheaper than the T4W BF price. It was just an observation on my part.

  • How come the “Black Friday” price is so high? This machine wasn’t “R4k” yesterday! We’re not stupid T4W…

    Guys, I have a pre-sales questions that I need some experienced user feedback on: All of you mention the good value for money this machine offers but I’m wondering what all the fine tuning is that you have to do to get the machine squared up and ready to use? I’m not really clued up on calibrating mitre saws… Thanks for you help!

    • Hi @vaughn @hjvrensburg @donjmacivergmail-com Would you be able to give some help on @mornem question on setting up this saw from a user’s perspective? Thanks

      • Maybe I was lucky. I got my saw about 3 years ago and it checked out all square when I got it and has remained so. The only hassles I have had were the failure of the laser which when replaced was tricky to align. The other one remains unsolved in that when you pull the blade down to make a cut it sticks. I have not been able to get to the bottom of the reason for that yet.

      • Hi Gareth, Sorry – not able to help out as I haven’t yet set mine up. been so busy at work I havent used it yet. one tip I can give is to search for a vid eo on youtube. there are tons of really helpful DIY woodworking videos, and I’m sure you’d find something along these lines.

    • Hi there mornem. To square the saw is quite easy. On the back of the guide rail are four allen key bolts/screws, two on each side. Loosen them, pull the blade down and lock it in place, use a square to square the blade with the back rail and tighten the bolts again. Simple. There is a youtube video available on how to do it as well. Cheers mate.
