    Depenjds when, Bill. When I bought mine they were a very reasonable (even then) ยฃ25 each more or less, but of course Proxxon stuff is massively overpriced purely because of the name, but the table saaw in that lot is exactly the same as the Abest my wife just bought me. God knows what the scroll saw cost, yet my son has a Hobbies saw that cost him very little in a charity shop and a new Ferm which was about 30 quid. I would still use it if I could get the batch reasonably, but I put in a decent bid and it was immediately raised by 2 quid, so I'm bowing out. Of all the bits there I would like the disc sander, as mine just vanished in a move. I have my son's big SIP machine, but I risk injury every time I pick it off the floor and it's in the way. But I can get a new tilt table disc sander of a small kind for 60 quid, so may do that. Can't find any second hand ones on ebay. But thanks for the link anyway.

    Bill, some of the tools I've had and lost are in that selection. I may see about bidding as that is quite near where I live!

    Hi Martin,

    I thought about it for far to long, when I finally made up my mind it was gone, and my neighbour dumped a load of furniture today in a skip so at least I've got a good stock of nice timber now, ah well. I'll just have to wait for it to come back into stock - darn it.
    I did see a load of second hand power tools for sale on ebay with 3 days or so left but it's in the UK for collection, but I'll post the link so hopefully someone can get lucky

    Yeah, been pondering and pondering and I keep going back to it (I know that's me sunk when I do that), I think I'm convinced especially since there's only one left ๐Ÿ˜Š Ah well one more toy for the toybox ๐Ÿ˜Š

    Haha, I wondered that, but couldn't find proof, so i went for the Abest and what a fine little tool it is. I am VERY pleased with it. You won't find better for twice the price.

    Hi Martin,

    I had a closer look at the one for ยฃ22-22 (who wouldn't ๐Ÿ˜Š ) and unfortunately it's only for the flexible shaft-dang.
    The Abest looks great - mmmm will I won't I
