This shop is great for the specialist wood finishing products such as fine wire wool french polish etc - the big stores dont stock such quality items - and always a friendly service. There's nothing like this store where I live in Retford.

With competitive prices and many special offers this little shop is a pleasant surprise and truly an Aladdinʼs Cave! The staff are friendly and helpful but more overly are experienced and give great advice for all of your DIY needs. If you donʼt see exactly what you want, just ask! They saved me a fortune in Tradesmanʼs bills!

One by one over the last 40 years, the traditional hardware shops have been killed off by the huge multiples. And in Worksop, we have the home of the best of them, Wilkinsons, which still keeps the common touch. But through it all, Machins have been the best. Over the years this family firm has diversified and filled niches left by other shopsʼ demise or by the multiplesʼ inattention. Today, Machins is still the best place in the area for home improvement and many crafts. And they compete with the big stores on price, too! They must do it in the old way: their service is the traditional best and they provide what their customers want. Whenever you want DIY, visit the big shops, see what theyʼve got, then go to Machins. Or save your time and go to Machins direct. Youʼll get a pleasant surprise. If youʼre looking for the deleted or hard-to-get item, chances are that itʼs in stock at Machins. And if it isnʼt, they can probably get it. None of that "Sorry, Sir, they stopped making those last year." Machins is in the best tradition of small shops - not that theyʼre so small these days!

Everyone at Machins is friendly and helpful. Its an amazing shop - they sell such a wide range of things for what appears to be a small shop from the outside. I always thought small shops were more expensive but Machins prove me wrong. Their prices are surprisingly competitive and they go out of their way to find just what you need. Well worth a visit.
