    I've got it's bigger brother in 110v and it's a really good core drill for the money.

    Well spotted, thanks for sharing.

    I'll try and see if I can get the core drill tomorrow. For £36 including VAT, it's a very good deal especially considering the good reviews I've just read.

    The core set is at a decent price as well, but has some poor reviews, so not too sure about that yet.

    Cheers for the link. There are a few good buys but nothing plumbing tho (maybe the bender).
    The core gun won't last you a crack. It is shyte but if you only drill a hole now and then through a 13" wall it might do you a turn.

    That sparky corer for 30 plus vat is a 3rd of the price of my Bosch sds and nearly twice as powerful. Seems too good to be sparky gear any good?

    Still coring out with mine, bought in 2005 never missed a beat.

    Same can't be said for bits though, getting through a 125mm per year.

    £150 from screwfix so in terms of cost seems really cheap. reviews on scre wfix are not good though. very sensitive clutch and seems to struggle 100mm plus holes. in two minds...
