 Post subject: Clamping rails are absolutely great!
PostPosted: Thu Feb 22, 2018 6:59 pm 
I don't know if I have come late or early to these things, but I am well impressed

This one has an additional gizmo you can add to the clamp to make it lock at 90 degrees


So if you want a 90 degree cross cut on a plank you don't need to draw a line you can just set the rail ...

 Post subject: Black Screws
PostPosted: Thu Feb 22, 2018 5:00 pm 
Hi all,

I'm looking for some black machine screws.

I've been using spray paint up until now, but paints just seem to rub off and look generally rubbish. Does anyone have any experience with black coatings that are a little more durable?

Thanks, Jeff

 Post subject: Fein Multimaster blade coating
PostPosted: Mon Feb 19, 2018 5:01 pm 
Hello all

I've never used one of these tools before and notice that the tips of the new blades are coated with something like a wax coating, are you supposed to remove this before using the blades? What's best to clean it off?

Thanks for any help :help:

I need to trim about 1 to 2mm off a door edge, and am also in the market for a cordless circular saw (preferably Makita as I have batteries and a charger already).

So I was wondering if anyone had experience in using a cordless circular saw, using the edge guide to just take off 1 or 2mm? If so what make/model do you use?

Bunnings reckoned the Makita's they sell can only go down ...

PostPosted: Wed Feb 14, 2018 7:33 pm 
I am looking for a better than M class extractor. It has basically come down to

A Starmix

Or a Bosch

I think they both have Hepa filters to boost the extraction any idea which is better or thoughts on other hoovers I should look at? Thanks.

 Post subject: Walabot DIY - Review
PostPosted: Fri Feb 09, 2018 12:19 am 
A few months ago, I saw an advert for this thing:-
It's basically a multi-antenna, RF-based stud/pipe/cable finder, about the size of a mobile phone. It connects via USB to an Android phone. You run an app on the phone and, if you watch the videos, you'll see how apparently amazingly effective it is at locating pipes (metal or plastic), cables, studs, even rodents behind skirting.

At the time I first saw it, I ...
