Best power tool

Without doubt the best power tool I bought last year. Excellent for very precise work and easily controlled with the foot switch. This is simply another example of the superb tools Axminster offer. Thank you

Very good but need more accesories

Hi Very good and versatile equipment. Need to get table top speed regulator as pedal is nigh on impossible to control for slower speed work with chisel and hammer pieces.

best thing I've bought so far

I am a stickler for detail and this certainly has helped me alot. Used to use a dremel with flexi shaft attachement but no pedal.
I am very impressed with the value for money factor. add to it a keyless small handle and you're laughing. I did find the pedal not too smooth engaging the motor. to the makers I would recomend that the increase of speed as you press down to take a little longer so that the movement doesn't have to be so fine with your foot.
