 Post subject: Laser Level advice needed
PostPosted: Fri Dec 31, 2010 12:50 pm 
I'm looking to buy a laser level. I borrowed a cheap one recently and found that it was useful once I get it levelled up, but getting it level in the first place was a nightmare.

I'm curious about these self-levelling laser levels. When they say that they are self-levelling, do they mean just that the line drawn on the wall is level, or do they mean that the line is also horizontal with respect ...

Whilst looking for reviews on Makita LXT circ saws I came across this American site with a few interesting tools:

http://toolguyd.com/2010/09/wiha-measure-up-screwdrivers-review/
http://toolguyd.com/2010/10/nupla-handi-hammer-as-handy-a-hammer-as-claimed/

And BTW, the difference between the BSS610 and BSS611 Makita circ saws is that the 610 has a brake and an LED work light whereas the 611 doesn't.

 Post subject: Stanley Fatmax Open Tote
PostPosted: Tue Dec 28, 2010 4:21 pm 
Just back from B&Q, where I picked up a Fatmax 18" open tote:
http://www.diy.com/diy/jsp/bq/nav.jsp?a ... egories%3C{9392071}&fh_search=fatmax&fh_refview=search&ts=1293549723700&isSearch=false

It was marked up as 19.98 on clearance, which didn't show up on the tills, but they let me have it anyway. Might be worth checking out if you're in there anyway (marked on an aisle end, but not where they were supposed to be)

I know some of you have the 10.8v twin set (drill/driver and impact).

The buggers have released a torch and a mini circular saw that uses the same battery...but only in America. Why not here!!! :cussing:
