A long weekend of deals is currently in progress and what's the thing everyone loves to do on a long weekend? Get tooled up and do some DIY. With these tool deals, you can drill holes, insert screws, sand and cut, all for less money than usual. 

I've expanded out this guide to the best Cyber Monday tool deals to include some more 'pro' entries. So now there's something for enthusiastic amateur DIYers and power-crazed, utilty belt-wearing, semi-professional home improvement experts. That's because our data wranglers are telling me that tools are the second most searched for thing among the best Cyber Monday deals so far.

That's not totally surprising. In the UK at least, the best cordless drills always number among the biggest Black Friday and Cyber Monday sellers of all at Amazon, B&Q and elsewhere. The biggest winner is usually Bosch, which always has at least one of its drills on sale at Amazon at a big discount. Those looking for something rather more serious should take a look at Amazon's Bosch Professional sale and at Toolstation. The latter's Black Friday sale seems to largely consist of smart home devices and pressure washers, but there are also some choice power tools to be had.

You can also expect to see deals on drills, electric screwdrivers and, indeed, every other tool under the sun, from Ryobi, DeWalt, Black and Decker… All the big tool brands that service the DIY market. There will no doubt be tools among the best Cyber Monday deals as well but these offers are on now.

Bosch Ixo was £50, now £24.50 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
A £25.50 discount means this user-friendly electric screwdriver is now so cheap, you might as well get two. It's not the most recent Ixo – that looks like a sex toy whereas this resembles a ray gun – but the spec is identical. Attempt to screw into undrilled hardwood or masonry with this and you will just look silly; leave that to the big boys. However the Ixo is perfect for small DIY tasks and assembling flatpacks – tasks that most people do somewhat more frequently than sinking 9-inch screws into brickwork.

Bosch Professional Cordless Screwdriver was £63, now £45 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
For tasks even more taxing than putting an Ikea bookshelf together, there's £18 off this Bosch Go leccy screwdriver. With a maximum speed or 360rpm and max torque of 10Nm, it's gained 4.5 stars from Amazon buyers. Since it comes with a 25-piece bit set, this is a bit of a bargain.

Bosch Hammer Drill was £80, now £43 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Every year, without fail, a Bosch electric drill is one of the biggest Black Friday sellers. This year, it'll probably be this one, what with it being promoted and getting a £37/46% discount. The 700W motor and 11Nm of torque are enough for most DIY tasks. Again, this is not one for men in kneepads who like angle grinding on the weekend. It's for normal people who put up the occasional shelf.

Bosch Professional Cordless Combi Drill was £148, now £111 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Alternatively, go pro with this much better drill from the Bosch blue range. With £37 off the price is more than reasonable considering you get two batteries, a hard case and a few drill bits for your money. The 1750rpm max no-load speed and up to 55Nm of torque mean this is a versatile and effective DIY tool.

DeWalt 18V combi drill & hammer drill kit was £450, now £350 at Toolstation (opens in new tab)
If you consider even that to be a bit feeble, how about this double pack with £100 off? Maxing out at 70Nm and 2,000rpm the brushless drill is pretty powerful, while the SDS hammer drill boasts 2.1j of impact energy, 4,600bpm impact rate and a chisel mode.

Gtech Combi Drill bundle was £155, now £100 at Gtech (opens in new tab)
Get £55 off this bundle, which combines a combi drill with a charger, battery and even a handy selection of drill bits. Gtech might not be the first name you'd think of when shopping for drills but this cordless drill/driver is excellent. It's also very good value indeed at this price.

Black & Decker Workmate was £50, now £30 at B&Q (opens in new tab)
You can't really call yourself a DIY-er if you don't own a Workmate. The dual-height structure means it can serve a workbench, vice, sawhorse and more, with dual clamping cranks and adjustable swivel pegs to increase clamping force. It's a little hard to pin down precisely what the Workmate's RRP is but £30 is a very good Black Friday price.

Bosch NanoBlade Cordless Saw was £200, now £120 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Pocket chainsaw, anyone? This Bosch one is £80 off for Black Friday although please don't actually keep it in your pockets. These little saws are surprisingly effective when it comes to heavy garden pruning and cutting woods such as flooring, dowel and the like. The battery on this cordless wonder can handle 'up to 150 branches' per charge.

Bosch PEX 400 AE sander was £114, now £88 at AO (opens in new tab)
This handy, random orbit sander is £26 off at AO and also part of their 'Best price. Guaranteed' promotion, so if you find it cheaper elsewhere, you know what to do. With a vacuum system to remove dust and variable speed control, this 350W sander is another useful tool for light DIY.

Amazon Black Friday tool deals
(opens in new tab)No, Amazon is not a DIY shop but it does sell an awful lot of tools. In particular, look out for Amazon's big, annual Bosch drill discount. This always ends up being a massive seller in the UK. Amazon also has everything from socket sets to angle grinders to work benches and goggles. There are deals galore to be had all year around, but Black Friday is probably the biggest tool-buying day of the year.

B&Q Black Friday tool deals
(opens in new tab)B&Q is a proper DIY store, although whether this means it is better placed to do tools deals on Black Friday than Amazon is debatable. The brand already has a B&Q Black Friday deals page (opens in new tab) in place, although there's not a lot going on there as yet. Of course, B&Q is also a great place to pick up deals on general home improvement wares, such as insulation, fittings and stuff for your garden.

Currys Black Friday tool deals (opens in new tab)
Currys is another shop that sells probably way more power tools than you would expect. As Currys goes discount-crazy every Black Friday, you may find you can snap up a cordless drill or leaf blower bargain here, come November 26. Brands on sale here include Makita and Bosch.

AO Black Friday tool deals (opens in new tab)
Okay, so again you may now be thinking, 'wait, does AO sell tools?' Well the answer is, 'yes it does'. You get the usual service from AO: a wide range of products, available for rapid delivery, at great prices. It's hard to imagine that drills and routers will be a priority for AO on Black Friday but you may be able to snap a deal under the radar.

Duncan has been writing about tech for almost 15 years, during which time he has attended every event going, apart from Apple ones, as he mysteriously doesn't get invited to them. He has covered everything from smartphones to headphones, TV to AC and air fryers to the movies of James Bond and obscure anime. 

Duncan's current brief is everything to do with the home and kitchen, which is good because he is an excellent cook, if he says so himself. He also covers cycling and ebikes – like over-using italics, this is another passion of his. Duncan also edits T3's golf section because fuck it, someone has to. Dave Usher does all the real work on that bit, though. In his long and varied lifestyle-tech career he is one of the few people to have been a fitness editor despite being unfit and a cars editor for not one but two websites, despite being unable to drive. He also has about 400 vacuum cleaners, and is possibly the UK's leading expert on cordless vacuum cleaners, despite being decidedly messy. A cricket fan for over 30 years, he also recently become T3's cricket editor, writing about how to stream obscure T20 tournaments, and turning out some typically no-nonsense opinions on the world's top teams and players.

Before T3, Duncan was a music and film reviewer, worked for a magazine about gambling that employed a surprisingly large number of convicted criminals, and then a magazine called Bizarre that was essentially like a cross between Reddit and DeviantArt, before the invention of the internet. There was also a lengthy period where he essentially wrote all of T3 magazine every month for about 3 years. 

A broadcaster, raconteur and public speaker, Duncan used to be on telly loads, but an unfortunate incident put a stop to that, so he now largely contents himself with telling people, "I used to be on the TV, you know."
