 Post subject: Erbauer 18v Jigsaw
PostPosted: Wed Jan 18, 2012 6:18 pm 
Hi all,

Ive just recently bought a second hand Erbauer 18v jigsaw with 2 batteries and charger off e-bay. I charged up both batteries and when I went to use the jigsaw it seemed as if it wasn't going fast enough and kept bouncing. To be honest it was pretty bloody useless and I put it back in its case and used my hand saw :roll: ...

 Post subject: Rivet guns and hole sizes for rivets
PostPosted: Wed Jan 18, 2012 5:58 pm 
Hi all,
Can anyone tell me what size holes to drill for corresponding rivets?
I want to invest in a decent hand riveter,but most seem to use odd size rivets,such as 3.2mm,and 4.8 mm.
Do i take it that for 3.2mm,you use the nearest available drill bit,which is 3.5mm? Likewise 4.8mm,use a 5mm bit to drill the hole?

I also noticed in B+Q a "Heavy duty" riveter,that used 4mm,5mm etc.

What do you reccomend? Is ...

PostPosted: Tue Jan 17, 2012 7:58 pm 
:cussing: Has anybody had experience in buying/using DIY air-compressors that are either fit for purpose -OR- Not fit for purpose? I have a 2hp Tiger airmaster compressor from Machine Mart, it's used very rarely to top-up my car tyres and clean off/out tools and machinery etc and is kept in a clean dry environment. Recently I went to use it and it started, sounded fine but built ...

 Post subject: Bahco ProfCut vs Bahco Superior hand saws?
PostPosted: Mon Jan 16, 2012 3:21 pm 
I guess this question could be broken into two more general questions about saws regardless of brand, but I get the impression Bahco is a step up in quality from the cheaper Stanley and Irwin saws?
  • are the low friction surface coats of genuine benefit, or merely a marketing gimmick? (the rust-proofing would be nice anyway, but not at the expense of effective cutting)
  • do the thicker blades make it easier to cut due to ...

 Post subject: Impact Energy on Chisel Drills
PostPosted: Mon Jan 16, 2012 2:58 pm 
I was looking at getting a drill with a chisel action.

But there appears to be many options for Impact Energy ranging from 1-2Joules up to 18.

What Jobs need what impact energy?
Is it just a compromise between weight, cost and the impact energy that would give?

I was looking to chisel off plaster from walls which I would suspect a couple of joules would be enough but if I wanted to break up ...

Just getting a few bits from Axminster, and spotted this....
