 Post subject: Cement mixer hell!!
PostPosted: Mon Apr 25, 2011 7:41 pm 
Good afternoon peops!,

Hi,
I'm thinking about getting a digital spiritl level. I've seen the bosch which looks nice, but I can't seem to find any reviews of it on the internet, which does make me wonder.

Anyone got experience of this, or another good digital level which they'd recommend please.

Thanks
J

Well it was that time of year, and I wanted to get my decking and patio looking smart ready for the summer BBQs...!!

My old Karcher pressure washer was sat in the garage, got her out and plumbed it up but its seems not to have weathered the winter well. I always store it 'dry', but the o-rings on all the connectors had perished, water was leaking from all crevices, it was struggling to maintain ...
