"Purchased a Makita 18V orbital sander. After two weeks of very light use (noice DIYer) the rubber grip came away from the body. I deemed this to be a fault as my farther and brother-in-law (both professional capenters) had the same product, used extensively and had no issues. After returning it to the Braintree branch they refused to replace it with a new one and point blank refused to issue a full refund under the Consumers Rights Law that you, as a consumer are entitled to a full refund within 30 days of procession of a faulty or unsatisfactory quality product. I was told they’re a “trade” shop so can operate outside of consumer law and that if they refunded or replaced with new, they’d have to carry the financial burden instead of myself. The only option they gave was to send it back to Makita for repair. I argued it was only two weeks old and consumer rights laws, but they point blank declined and breached my consumer rights. At purchase I did not need or nor was asked to setup a trade account. Not did they inform me that I’d be forfeiting my consumer rights."

"Just bought Festool ks 120 chop saw, service was fine from Frank Howard but saw came with problem which FH was slow to respond too, so I went direct to Festool. KS 120 mitre saw has been let down to be honest, the rear locking device is unfit for purpose, it still moves even when lock, so every time you have check, which at nearly £1000 is a joke. Also you cant side arm without having removing part of the rear fence on compound cuts at around 45-47 deg cuts which is poor design fault. Wish I bought dewalt saw to be honest"

""I received my Bosch drill and impact driver in good time, but on opening it noticed the seal was very easy to remove without breaking. \r\nHaving examined the drill and battery\u2019s and driver, I could see that the batteries had scuff mark on and that the one battery would not even come out if the drill, I think no it had all been used before.\r\nI sent an email with pictures and details of my issues but received no response. \r\nI have also called and was meant to have been called back on two occasions and after a week I am still waiting , very disappointed and still have no drill to use.""
