Just the same here in france - done business with them for nigh on 15 years and they will still shaft you on the quiet if you dont watch them.

Gotta keep firing a few F@#cks into them - or the equivalent 😁

You canít trust any of them!
exactly ..... when you can walk in off the street and get better prices than a loyal account holding customer, of many years, there is something very wrong.
'Robbers' have had their last pound from me for sure ... plenty of other folk out there only too willing to take yer money

thanks for all the replies lads sorry been a bit of a up and down week with work so not been in the mood much lol Shovel hands thanks for the heads up will give them a ring and see what they can help me on when i get it all up and running. Glad you think it was a bargain as only need to use it now and again so was a waste to pay any more. OllieGunns and doobin thanks for the advice on the toolstation ones will give them a look for my main use ones and maybe a expensive one for neat work. doobin do you have any info or a link to the ripper tooth ones as they sound like something i would have a fair bit of use for in the long run. Thanks again lads tiny
