Date added: 11/02/2014 MakerBeam gets better and better!

We know many of you love using MakerBeam, well the team at MakeBeam have been busy with further developments. Soon their beams will be provided with M3 threaded ends. Now that may not sound that exciting in itself but add to that 'Cube' fixings like these:



and you can do this:



Which apart from looking neater, they are less intrusive and quicker to assemble. We at Technobots think they are great but as we already carry extensive stocks of the original beams (15 variations of size and finish) without threaded ends, so it will take a little while to replace them with the new threaded type once they are available.



Date added: 23/12/2013 Xmas Free Gifts

Earlier this year we gave away hex key sets and digital multimeters, well as it happens we still have quite a few of these left so during this Xmas break, we are giving them away again - whilst stocks last.

Spend over £5 excl VAT on goods and get the free hex key set worth £3.95, spend over £40 and also get a free digital multimeter worth £5.68.

Their weight has been set to zero so you will not even be charged any extra for postage.

Date added: 27/06/2013 UK Shipping Costs Reduced
Date added: 05/06/2013 Techno Points

We have introduced a reward / loyalty scheme as a way of saying thank you to our returning customers. Each time you spend, you accumulate Techno Points which you can then 'spend' against future orders. You will need to register a user account if you have not already done so, to allow our website can keep track of your Techno Points. If you already have a user account, make sure you sign in before placing your order. If you checkout as a guest, you will not receive any Techno Points.

For each £1 you spend, you receive 10 Techno Points (2.5 for registered club members). The exchange rate for spending your points is 200 Techno Points to the £1. This equates to a 5% discount on purchases on top of any other product discounts, including bulk buying. You can spend as many Techno Points as you wish, subject to your balance available and the goods value. A few products are exempt and you cannot use Techno Points with these. 

There is no time limit in which to spend the points but we reserve the right to change or end the promotion scheme at any time; although we will give 3 months notice via our website before the points can no longer be 'spent' on our site.

Techno Points can only be used against future orders as a discount and cannot be exchanged for money.
