    Fairly self explanatory and every time you buy a new one you can post it up here.

    Today I purchased this from ebay. 620 new and I got this one which supposedly has had 'very light use' for 200. And the guy only lives about 5 miles from me.

    This app a few minutes ago, which should pay for itself on the current job alone.

    I'm getting lazy!

    A box load of HSS drill bits after finding a bent 4mm bit in the 'DIY' set I had.

    Disposable at that price.

    THIS is the one I got although I got it for 38 and not the 66 they are selling it for now.

    Its quite good and pretty much matches my expectations of it insofar as I expected it to be handy for going round buildings drilling 6mm holes an inch and half deep for floor mounted door stops and the like.
    I've put door casings into engineering brick walls with it and it doesn't last long per charge drilling 7mm holes 100mm deep in that.

    I bought two twin packs of Aldi ratchet quick clamps, 500mm long ones, for a fiver a pair. They're obviously not top quality at that price, but surprisingly robust considering. They'll do for any light clamping duties, but there's a noticeable flex if you try and put too much pressure on, especially in the trigger bit. I've got several Wolfcraft quick clamps, which i've had for years and these will make a handy addition as it doesn't matter how many clamps you have, there never seems to be enough.

    One of these, I think:

    Unless you consider a generator to be a tool, in which case one of these:

    One of these. How I lived without one I will never know. It's SO satisfying.

    I was after the Halfords Advanced pro ratchets in 1/4 and 3/8 drives, this whole set was only marginally more than the two ratchets, so it followed me home this morning courtesy of some birthday cash
