Toolstop To Visit Makita Power Tools

Hi, Neil here.

Just getting all my stuff ready for my trip to Milton Keynes tomorrow with Mark.

We’ll be visiting Ray Wilby, Makita training Manager for a couple of days to shoot as many videos as we can.  We’ve given Ray a list of about 50 assorted tools and over the coming weeks we’ll be editing them and uploading them to the Mr Toolstop Youtube site.  We’ll also be embedding them in the content of our product pages on the Toolstop Power Tools Website.

We’re great believers in showing off power tools in their full glory.  We can write a novel and take pictures from as many angles as you like but you just cannot do most power tools justice in words and images.  The feedback we’ve received so far is that our videos are allowing prospective power tool users to make an informed decision on a purchase.

So, the toothbrush is packed, the video camera is packed, the hard work is about to begin.

We’ll report back at the end of the week about the tools you’re likely to be seeing on film over the coming weeks.

The Gadget Show Does Power Tools

I’ve dug out a couple of old scenes from Channel 5’s “The Gadget Show”.

The first one shows a mixture of DIY and Industrial tools such as:

  • Black & Decker BDL500M laser level with built in tape measure – a handy wee DIY tool at a very affordable price
  • Dewalt D25840K 7kg SDS-max demolition hammer which has some serious breaking power
  • Bosch IXO, a tiny electric screwdriver which fits in any pocket

The second one has 5 DIY power tools such as:

The Power8 Workshop is one of the best selling DIY tools in the Toolstop range. It is a great gift because there are so many different tasks it can perform. It is a multipurpose addition to your set.

What tools would you recommend as being an all-rounder?

A Video is Worth a Thousand Pictures

The saying “A picture is worth a thousand words” dates back to the 1920s.

Toolstop always keep this in mind when advertising new power tool products on their website and provides up to 5 pictures in various angles and close-ups to ensure the customer has as much detail about the product as possible.

To take it a step further, Toolstop are now producing videos to help the customers make an even more informed choice. By using videos produced by manufacturers such as Bosch, Makita and Dewalt as well as making their own videos it is believed the amount of information the customer will see allows them to better compare the features of the products they are interested in.

Toolstop are producing 2 videos per week which are hosted on sites such as Youtube and Vimeo and embedded within their site. These videos range from how-to, unboxing, educational and instructional. They even have videos showing how to navigate their site and showing how easy it is to shop online on their site.
