Top summer products for the trades


With their compact small size and light weight, Wiha PocketMax screwdrivers fit into every shirt or trouser pocket. Safely tucked away in the handle, the bit depot includes either eight popular standard bits 1/4″ C 6.3 in the magnetic version or four slimBits in the insulated electric version.



The 18-volt Festool range of cordless compact dust extractors has been expanded with two new models – the CTC MINI and the CTC MIDI. Both units can be activated via Bluetooth autostart or remote control, switching on the extractor automatically when the cordless tool starts up. Suction power can also be adjusted to three levels according to the application.


For cooling comfort and freedom of movement this summer choose Snickers Workwear’s Lightweight Work Shorts. A street-smart fit and robust holster pockets are complemented by quick-drying 37.5 technology fabric delivering efficient moisture transport, ventilation and UPF40 sun protection in sunny weather. There’s also a 4-way stretch panel at the crotch and reinforcement at critical areas.


Multiple applications – from detail sanding to window frames – can be undertaken with the new Mirka DEOS 343CV sander. The tool’s 75mm x 100mm pad enables access to hard to reach areas, a low profile allows the tool to get closer to the surface – making it easier to control – and the lightweight ergonomic design provides the user with a comfortable grip.


It’s the arched adjustment slot and slim head shape of the Knipex Alligator that makes them suitable for confined spaces. Thanks to a 9-step locking adjustment there’s a large number of grip widths, which will accommodate pipes up to 50mm (2in.) and nuts up to 46mm – which is 30 per cent more than with standard water pump pliers.
