No, but as suggested for the service, try Bosch dealers --- it is they who sell Dremmel here in Chennai.

Thanks. I was just kidding. Btw, I had visited the SPAR in bannerghetta road and not the one in Oasis which is nearer to my place. Didn't even know that there is a SPAR there as well till today

Even Biz Baazar has a Bosch stall. I saw one at Old Madra Rd. BB. Prices looked higher than that of spar to me.
This jigsaw (Pic is from net, not the actual one on display there) was priced at Rs.2,200/-
Sales man was always shadowing me and I could not freely check the things out there. There were also powertools of another brand called powermax.

There is a new dealer for Stanley tools on SP Road (on your left before you climb the fly-over). I recogonised the chap at the counter and he affirmed that this was another outlet by Hussen and Co (Commerical Street).

Wow, the Bosch jig-saw is next on my 'to buy tools' list. I had to do some DIY install of Polycarbonate sheets on the stair-case railings of my house [to prevent my eight month old son from going through it]. So, went to Metro to buy a jig-saw but they did not have them in stock and I had to do this with my 'SKIL' Marble-cutter. I am happy with the results of that DIY but would have been so better if I had a Jig-saw.

Also, I was in the Gujari hunting for some spares for my ss80 and Willys Jeep when I came across a 'mixed bag' of around 25 sockets in various sizes. After lot of bargaining, I paid Rs.500 for a mix of various Canadian, U.S and Japanese branded sockets. Known brands were Snap-on and Kraftsman. There was no rachet wrench, but I already have a Stanley one with sockets of sizes that I normally use. So, do not rule out the good old Gujari for there might be such hidden treasures there.

Default DIY Oscilloscope

I added this tool today. Ordered from net Digital Storage Oscilloscope DIY Kit with Panels [TOL107C3M] - $33.00 : Seeed Studio Depot, Arsenal for interaction engineering, paid $33+$3 shipping. It took 3 hours to solder all SMT. It also measures frequency.

On my desk testing, 500Hz/5Vpp -

Its AUT - means auto triggered now. But there is provision of normal (NOR) and external signal (SIG) too. I did not try later one.

I've got one of those. Many years ago, I wanted a drill gage (Just a steel plate with sized holes in it) and the vernier gage was cheaper!

I used to have a micrometer, that was thrown out by a factory I was working for at the time, for a minor fault, but unfortunately that got lost along the way. Not something I've ever needed, but hey, measuring people's hair is some sort of an ice breaker

Is there an attachment (bundled or otherwise) with the Bosch GSB 13 RE for unscrewing the wheel nuts in our cars?

Not that anyone has heard of. One uses gear-reduced pneumatic impact drivers for that, and that is too costly a system for home use. Impact in 'Impact drill' (axial impact) is different from that in 'Impact driver' (radial impact).

Hi guys!
I am thinking of buying the famous BOSCH GSB13RE Professional Impact drill bundled tool kit. The dealer here in Faridabad is quoting me a price of Rs. 3900 and said that the MRP is Rs. 5500. But, in this same thread I read of a guy who got it for Rs. 3500. Can somebody reply with the correct price. Please. I need to buy it but I fear the dealer is over-charging.
