Power Tools That Pack a Punch
Of course for any DIY project, you’ll be needing some top quality power tools to ensure your job is up to scratch. Thankfully, using Argos voucher codes means that you can get hold of everything you need, with savings on tools from some of the UK’s favourite brands. Let’s start with the basics - the drill. One of the bestsellers at the moment is this Black + Decker Cordless Hammer Drill & Mouse with Batteries. A must have accessory in your tool kit, this 18V compact hammer drill is lightweight and compact, but it still packs a punch. Powerful enough to drill through masonry, wood and metal, it features a two speed gear system making it ideal for high speed drilling. As for the mouse sander, the compact and ergonomic design makes it perfect for sanding uneven and difficult to reach spaces with ease. This great value kit comes with a 31 piece set of accessories, along with 10 sanding sheets and a carry case too, so it’s perfect for any die hard DIY-er! Alternatively, you could go for this Ryobi Drill Driver with 1.5Ah Battery and Charger, which is part of the brand’s ONE+ range. The Ryobi ONE+ range is a complete selection of cordless home and garden tools, all of which are compatible with the same 18V battery. So, no matter what the task, you can power all of the essentials with just one battery! Clever, right?
Currently at £70 down from £80, the Ryobi Drill is perfect for DIY projects around the home and can drill into a number of materials including plastic, wood, metal, plasterboard and tiles. It features a screwdriver function too, so it's ideal for putting together flatpack furniture with ease, and the variable speed trigger gives you complete control. It’s even handy for use in poorly lit areas thanks to the built in LED light!
So, you’re all set on the drill front, but what about those other all-important power tools? We can help you out there too, as another top tool you can save on with Argos promo codes is the Black + Decker 115mm Angle Grinder and Cutting Discs. This highly versatile tool is great for a variety of different tasks, including cutting, cleaning or sharpening, and the compact design makes it easy to use in smaller spaces too. The comfortable grip and three position handle also ensures optimum safety, while the spindle lock means you can quickly and easily change discs with ease. Currently only £32.50, it’s a steal!
So you’re all set when it comes to the bigger power tools, but what about those small but important essentials? One of the hottest products you can get your hands on in the Argos DIY tools promotion is this Bosch IXO V Cordless Screwdriver, currently only £30. The ultimate gadget for your toolbox, this handy cordless screwdriver is ideal for fixing electricals, building flatpack furniture or simple screw tightening. Accessories wise, it comes with 10 screw bits as well as a convenient carry case too, allowing for easy storage when not in use.
For those wanting to upgrade their tool kit with a few new toys, we love this Guild 45 Piece Home Tool Kit, currently a bargain at just £20! Perfect for completing your tool collection or for those just starting out, this kit has everything you need to make DIY jobs a breeze. Featuring all of the essentials including a hammer, 3 pliers, 3 combination wrenches along with tape measure and torpedo level, this fantastic value set will ensure you’re kitted out for all of those odd jobs that need doing.
Another nifty gadget you’ll be wanting to add to your toolbox has to be this Guild 30m Laser Measure, ideal for those who are useless with the tape measure! This nifty little device allows you to accurately measure spaces in half the time, and the impressive range allows you to measure up to 30m with ease. Super easy to operate too, this lightweight gadget is perfect for measuring when it comes to wallpapering, flooring and furniture space. Plus, it even remembers your last measurement, making it even easier to calculate areas.
It’s not just power tools you can save on at the moment with our Argos discount vouchers. Currently, their DIY and tools promotion has plenty of great savings on accessories and home safety products too. One of which is this Abru Werner 5 Tread High Handrail Step Ladder, which is only £40 at the moment. While I’m sure many of us have resorted to standing on a chair to do those difficult to reach tasks, it’s not particularly the safest way to go about things! Instead, having a decent step-ladder is much more appropriate and safe. This heavy duty ladder is perfect for use around the home and features wide, non slip treads, as well as a high handrail to ensure optimum safety.
Family Safety & Security
There’s no doubt that there’s a whole list of odd jobs that need doing in the home at the moment, so why not take this opportunity to tick a few of them off your list? One particular job that so many of us forget to do is to ensure that those home safety essentials are all running smoothly. While it may not be the most interesting of tasks, checking that smoke alarms and such are all in good working condition is very important and will ensure the safety of everyone in your home! If you’re looking at upgrading yours, this Kidde Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Alarm is a great choice, as it offers protection from both dangers in a single device. At £20, it’s an absolute must and will ensure complete peace of mind for you and your family!
It’s also important to ensure that any valuables are kept safe in the home too. That’s why this Argos Home A5 Digital Safe is a must to keep your belongings safe and sound. Designed for home use, this sturdy safe is perfect for storing all important electronics, jewellery and more. Simply set a passcode of your choice and you’re all set! The safe also comes with 2 override keys too so that you can still get to your belongings if you end up forgetting your passcode - we’ve all done it!
Finally, completing our line-up of top picks, we have the Uni-Com Premium Portable and Plug-In Doorbell Set, which is currently just £30. The portable unit can be transferred from room to room, and even outside into the garden, thanks to the extensive range of up to 120m. Allowing you to extend coverage over your home and garden, you’ll never miss a ring on the doorbell again!
