I get most of mine from Total Tools. Pretty good quality and good pricing and their own brand has life time warranty.

 

I got a TTI 12mm rachet spanner thats outlasted a Kinchrome one ( damn those 12mm bolts on the bonnet, a nightmare during the 25 conversion)

Buy most of my tools from electrical wholesalers (can get discounts due to the company I work for having accounts).

 

Bunnings can be quite overpriced for tools, unless you buy cheap shit. A pair of Channelock pliers are close to $80 there, when I can find them for around $30 cheaper elsewhere.

 

Victec must have really gone down hill. It wasn't too bad when I was there from 2002-2006...

Total tools is the way to go if you just want some tools on the spot, but if you are willing to wait a week or so jump onto ebay OR Bunnings does special order in nearly every brand that your after.

 

so if you take the exact model number to your local bunnings special orders desk talk to the people there and tell them at where ever you saw the tool that you after at a specific price(mind you the tool shop guys will be ringing the other toolshop to check the shelf price) and they will beat it by 10% becuase the oder in prices are no where near the shelf prices of the competition.

 

For example,

 

you see a drill in total tools for 500, you right it down and make sure you have the right model your after.

 

Go to bunnings give them the model number and shelf price.

 

By Bunnings advertising they are required to beat any "shelf price" by 10% this does include special orders

 

Hence that 500$ drill now costs you $450, A 50$ dollar saving for a weeks wait? could be well worth it( note 50$ is set from a 10% of 500)

Bunnings cheat a lil with 10%, for example the transmig 200 model number at total tools may be 222456 but bunnings will have it intheir system as 222457 there for the 10% rule won't count as different model number.

 

Oh and if they stock a certain brand they will have access to all stock

bunnings sell all bosch gear for mega low prices compared to others.

Bunnings seem to mostly sell the green Bosch (home use) don't they? Bought a blue Bosch angle-grinder from Total Tools in Moorabbin and they were cheap.

 

BuK>: for power tools try Huntingdale Power Tools on Huntingdale Rd just off Prinny Hwy in Oakleigh/H'dale.

 

Also try Reece Plumbing as they sell a fair amount of plumbing-specific gear ('Footprints' FTW!).
