You may have recently noticed a Kickstarter campaign for a DOER BOX, a 12-in-1 workshop, which looks very similar to the POWER8workshop. We are grateful to our loyal customers who have been in contact to let us know.

CEL-UK recently parted company with our Director in the Hong Kong office, they are within their rights to develop the DOER BOX. We have no affiliation with the DOER BOX / Stellen, they have sourced a different Chinese factory and we believe they are still to pay for tooling for some of the products before they go to manufacture in 2020, hence their Kickstarter Project.

DOER / Stellen are telling their backers the POWER8workshop has become obsolete – this is definitely not true. The original POWER8workshop (plus heads and spares) is here to stay, in stock and available right now from CEL-UK. Don’t wait for the copy to be made.

Buy the POWER8workshop direct from the original designer today – Currently on sale until 29th October 2019 – RRP discounted by 15%!

CEL-UK has a Service Centre based just outside of Bristol, UK. We provide support over the phone or via a service portal/email, we have knowledgeable and friendly staff who have been with the company since our MD, Chris Elsworthy, designed the POWER8workshop from his garage at home, back in 2006. What’s more we have the most amazing customers who we appreciate and listen to, some of whom are still using the very first batch of the POWER8workshop which was manufactured in 2008! We wouldn’t be where we are now without our customers.

The POWER8workshop is a 4 piece / 8 function toolbox, however there is an option to purchase add-ons, such as a Surface Planer, Impact Driver head, AC Transformer and Extender (use your handheld tools directly from the mains).


We didn’t stop there, we also introduced a 14.4V Li-Ion range, where 1 battery fits more than 10 different power tools and 4 garden tools – once you own the battery and charger you can build your own tool set. With a heavy duty canvas bag to store everything this range is ideal if you don’t need the work surface the POWER8 provides, or want the freedom to add to your kit month by month.


Within our small team of 14 people we also design and manufacture Robox 3D Printers. The RoboxPRO is manufactured here in the UK, at our HQ. In 2016 and 2017 we won the 3D Hubs Plug & Play award. We work closely with Educational Establishments and Public Libraries, enabling 3D printing to be accessible to everyone from Primary School age upwards. RoboxPRO is attractive to manufacturing companies, we have some well-known consumer brands as customers.


We also have a CNC machine on the premises and recently introduced CEL-CNC as a service we provide. We offer high quality CNC routing, 3D printing, vinyl/die cutting, plotting, drilling and fabrication. Using our state-of-the-art CNC routing equipment, CNC vinyl/die cutter and Robox 3D printer ‘farm’, we have expertise producing a wide range of projects from a variety of materials.

We designed and built our own Soapbox Kart which we raced in July 2019. Currently we are manufacturing eCruz bikes – a one-of-a-kind timber framed electric cruiser perfect for your everyday commuting needs!
