    Has anyone used one of these?

    I was thinking of getting one but would like to hear opinions of others first.

    TIA. :)

    No experience myself... but I imagine that they'd be great for fixing onto timber, but crap at everything else...

    The vast majority of my work is on timber framed buildings.

    Looks good I like the idea but couldn’t justify the expense of one cause timber for me is a rare occurrence

    one plus point is that the fixings they use are metal with plastic protecting, so would be classed as a fire-rated support.

    If the tool is going to make your life easier and shorten your day then it's worth investing in, check the price on the consumables though as it may be restrictive, if you are self employed then it is tax deduct-able.

    Also check the weight of the tool to see if you can work with it for long periods.

    Agree to expensive, plus you would never get a decent clipping job with one of those monstrosities in my opinion, still doubt if that will worry todays crop of 5wws.

    Pete, how can you give an opinion re the clipping ability if you have never used one? Also where is the relevance or link to so called 5ww's, do all 5ww's in your opinion not worry about clipping or just generally like Dewalt tools? :tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy:

    I already have the batteries as all my other kit is Dewalt.
    So that brings it down to about £200

    Clips work out at about 3p each.

    I agree that it won't be as pretty to look at Pete but I am perfectly capable of deciding when would be an appropriate time to use it or not.

    Edit.

    In fairness to Pete I did ask for opinions. :D

    Oh but I have used one and frankly find them cumbersome, and if I'm honest useless, part of the art of being an Electrician is being able to clip and dress cables in the correct way, using a staple gun, although it may be the in thing is it the right thing to do?
    I suppose it is in these times, clipping cables of any sort is an art, not to be confused with stapling a cable to a joist or whatever, still I suppose un the time of fast track trades art goes out the window, I'm sorry if my post doesn't agree with your way of working, but hey hoe we are all different and have our own opinions, you probably know mine already.
