 Post subject: paper or wire weld nails for a Dewalt framing nailer?
PostPosted: Wed Sep 19, 2018 1:37 pm 
Hi all,

I'm looking at buying a dewalt framing nailer for some upcoming projects, namely this one

Looking at nail availability, I can see some that are held together with paper tape and some that are welded together. I can't see anything on the page to suggest which type should be used or whether you can use either. Could anyone offer some advice please as I've only used a brad nailer before.

 Post subject: work trousers
PostPosted: Sat Sep 15, 2018 2:50 pm 
For the past few years I have been buying different makes of holster pocket trousers, the problem I have is the wear and tear in the knees after 2-3 months. I am thinking of spending a bit more and upgrading to Snickers, but I don't want to be spending good money if they are going to do the same. So I would like some reviews and advice please.

 Post subject: Titan vs Erbauer Thicknesser?
PostPosted: Wed Sep 12, 2018 1:37 am 
Hey all, so I find myself in need of a planer and thicknesser.

I'm looking at the Titan TTB579PLN and the Erbauer ERB052BTE. Is the Erbauer definitely the one to go for or are they really just the same unit as is what happens with most tools in this price range? Didn't we used to call these jointers?

In the thicknesser mode, do they work as well as a traditional style unit like the Triton ...

 Post subject: DREAM MIG WELDER
PostPosted: Fri Aug 31, 2018 8:45 am 
Ive been doing mig welding for 15yrs now. Seen, operated, assembled and broke quite a number of industrial mig welders. From 200AMP - 650AMP.
Taught myself the hard way. I can do a pretty nice welding run, if i may say so myself.

Anyway, our workload required that we get a second mig welder. To get a steady assembling rythym.
The big machine we have, is MAT-WELD 250AMP industrial mig. No fancy business. Welds well, ...

 Post subject: Evolution HULK ELECTRO Electric Compactor Plate-Any good?
PostPosted: Tue Aug 28, 2018 5:22 pm 
I need a compactor/whacker plate to lay type 1 for a 4x3m shed base. I've hired one in the past but thought about buying a second hand one as I'll need it a couple of times for a few jobs I have lined up in the next few years. They are really expensive though so I thought about the above evolution electric one. The reviews on Amazon are a bit sketchy and people say it's ...
