    I know but it's the trusting there legit that's what bothers me. I'd like warranty.

    Just remember Macka just because it's ebay doesn't neccassarily mean it's second hand, all I buy are brand new from companies selling on eBay and all come with the normal warranty,

    Use the ask a question option to check this before buying and keep the reply incase the warranty doesn`t arrive. Not everything you get on fleabay is as described.

    As said where ever the best deal is,
    I normally use Screwfix or tools station as I know I can just go in and pick it up that day or next day and it's easy if anything missing or broken/brakes

    Been buying on eBay for years but try to stay away from people as I tend to buy off companies who simply use eBay as a selling point, I've had some great deals , some companies I'm a regular too, like folkstonne fixings and transtools, if anything goes wrong ebay WILL always pay u and honour your buy, had couple of dealings with pure fannys and ebay always paid me back,

    Would you all say the Dewalts carry more oomph than the makita 18v???

    dewalt and makita are much of the same.
    they get the job done and are priced fairly well.

    you can start paying a premium and going for panasonic, milwakee or hilti.

    although i noticed tool station are doing some nice deals on milwaukee, as are plumb centre
