Three lucky readers will each win a Bosch hamper comprising of one PBD 40 Bench Drill, a PWS 850-125 Angle Grinder, a PHO 1500 Planer, and a PCM 1800 Mitre Saw.

Bosch PBD 40:
The Bosch PBD 40 guarantees control with a two-speed electronic speed/torque setting, while a robust base plate with pre-defined fixing points ensures maximum stability. For greater convenience and ease-of-use, the PBD 40 features a laser function and LED light display that monitors drilling depth (in mm) and speed (in rpm). The chuck clamping range is 1.5 mm to 13 mm, with a maximum drill stroke of 90 mm. The maximum drilling capacity is 13 mm in steel and 40 mm in wood.

Bosch PWS 850-125 angle grinder:
An ergonomic anti-vibration handle ensures work without exhaustion, while an integrated spindle lock allows for easy disc changes. The new compact design of the Bosch PWS 850-125 angle grinder allows for excellent manageability and handling. The protective guard is easily adjustable to ensure maximum user safety, and a new sealing at the rear bearing minimises vibration.

Bosch PHO 1500 planer:
The Bosch PHO 1500 has a depth cut of between 0 and 1.5 mm and offers users a clean work surface, thanks to the one-sided chip clearance, which allows for vacuum cleaner access. It weighs just 2.4 kg, ensuring easy manoeuvrability. It also features an intelligent blade system, which allows for the quick and easy change of the tungsten carbide planing knife.

Bosch PCM 1800 SD Sliding Compound Mitre Saw:
The Bosch PCM 1800 Mitre Saw boasts a powerful 1 800 watt motor, dual bevel mechanism and ten-inch saw blade. These features make the tool ideal for high-capacity cross cutting, bevel cutting, mitre and double mitre cutting through wood and aluminium. The combination of a high quality saw blade and integrated laser with horizontal imprint scale achieves smooth and accurate sawing results.
