B&Q Trade Day

Discussion in 'UK DIY' started by The Medway Handyman, Jul 23, 2007.

  1. Picked up a flyer in my local B&Q superdepotwarehouse last week advertising
    a 'Trade Day' today.

    Displays & demos were promised, "meet the UKs leading suppliers & see the
    latest equipment & materials".

    Makita, Bosch, DeWalt, Irwin, Dulux, Karcher etc. Sounded good.

    Got out of bed early to go & have a look before my first job. What a waste
    of good sleeping time.

    Only three stands; Dulux, Evode & Evolution Power Tools.

    I did see some things of interest, Evodes 'Fast Foam' a two pack expanding
    foam for small jobs that sets in 60 seconds - and it does
    http://www.evode.co.uk/corpweb/p2.nsf at £4:99 its a dear way to buy
    expanding foam, but useful for what I do & I charge it on anyway. Managed
    to blag a free pack :)

    The other thing was a demo of the Evolution 'Rage' circular saw. Cut 6mm
    mild steel with almost no sparks & then a worktop with no breakout - same
    blade. With a blade change concrete slabs with almost no dust. It cuts
    rather that abrades.

    No use to me, but interesting & very impressive. Dunno how long a blade
    lasts, replacements were £20. Some kind of super dooper tungsten carbide
    apparently. Concrete slab cutting was most impressive.

    Other than that a waste of time.

    Yep, I'd have summised that from the flyer tbh and stayed in bed
    anyway.
