  1. Had a guild 18b combi drill just over 18months it has now decided to call it a day .I am a home diy man so it didn't get used that much at all . Will be buying from Lidl or Aldi in future borrowed my mates combi he had for 5 years he can remember was not as expensive as guild either . Don't bother with guild very disappointed .

  2. I bought a Guild1:8 1.3 Ah Lithium drill from Argos 9 monthis ago.I've used it twice during this time, needed to do a job today, charged the battery up,tried to do some simple drilling in timber, battery died after drilling 4 small holes. REPEATED charging for 8 hours..same result. Either battery not holding charge or charger faulty. Advise please.... remembering present situation.

    1. Guild products are crap I have a set and they are all faulty (codeless drill small angle grinder, sander) nobody does the parts for repairs for them got it from HomeBase even they don't want to know, best not to buy any unknown power tools from Guild.

      I thought I'll buy a set looks good but i didn't know i was buying new plastic crap.

      1. I've had mine for a while and use it constantly up the farm. I've not had an issue with the drills or batteries as of yet. its a good starter kit.

  3. Hi,

    Where can you buy Guild power tools accesories? I have a Guild bms210G mitre saw and I am looking for a tile cutting blade. I have googled it, but I can't find anywhere where you can buy any Guild blades? How is that possible? Do you know where you can buy the blades for this machine?

    Thanks Vincent

      Nobody sells any parts for it bin it cut your losses and buy something branded and new.

    1. I'm trying to find out where I can get a replacement guild charger unit for a cordless drill/driver JLH1220037081 battery 18v

  4. I personally like guild tools. They are affordable and good quality. I personally used a cordless drill for a couple of months, and it gave a great service then I switched to Dewalt. I like the brief details of every tool in this post. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Forget Guild tools. No back up whatever. I tried to locate blades for their electric planes but discovered it is impossible to get any parts or accessories from this maker.
    Blades are a standard disposable replacement for electric planes.
    This service is rubbish.

  6. I have. Guild lithium-ion hammer drill, 18v 1.3ah and lost my charger, do you sell them ? If so how much?
    Kind regards
    J Davis

  7. Sanders and grinders are completely waste of money, the sanders break down so easy Thts why they only cheap to buy total throw away tools
    Not worth a penny and to get any sort of decent customer service it’s a joke

  8. I have used Guild tools for years, never broken down and always got the job done.
    So affordable that if they ever broke, would replace instead of repair

  9. I bought a guild 18v cordless drill a few years ago it was on the lower end of the other mid ranged priced drills.

    I didn't want to just buy the cheapest i use it for diy jobs around the house and it works great. The only downside is that there is no warning that the battery is running low it just stops dead. I couldn't find my original charger so i tried using any charger i could find which was 12v 1amp and i left it charging for days and it didn't charge at all so i thought the battery was dead until i remembered when the original charger was and i dug it out. The original charger is 22v 370ma after plugging it i checked with a DMM and it finally started charging i was about to throw it in the bin and buy a new one.

    if anyone is having problems charging their battery make sure you are using the original charger it should have "guild" written on it in green ( the color on mine is green ) or one that is rated 22v 370ma.
