 Post subject: Taper fit chuck
PostPosted: Sat Feb 09, 2019 6:49 pm 
I need a new chuck for my bench drill which has what I think is called a Morse taper. Are all tapers the same? If not,how do I ensure that I get the correct one?
It's a 13mm chuck,if that is relevant.

Many thanks, Nigel.

 Post subject: Help needed with my new compressor
PostPosted: Fri Feb 08, 2019 1:11 pm 
I went to get my compressor set up today and I am a bit confused over what I need to do to get an air hose connected. The compressor has two quick release fittings as outlet feeds but my hose has a screw on end rather than a bayonet fitting that would slot in.

Can anyone advise on how I should proceed please? Do I need to buy specific fittings to remake the existing hose ...

PostPosted: Sat Feb 02, 2019 7:26 pm 
Hi all, new on here and after some advice. I bought a dewalt dcd775 drill as part of a combi set and has been ok for what I need it for until the other week. I needed to put in a new door lock and it kept jamming when I was using an 18mm flat bit to deepen the cavity. Brand new bit so wasn't blunt. Thinking about the dcd996 with 3 speed gear box. ...

 Post subject: Allen keys
PostPosted: Fri Feb 01, 2019 9:14 am 
I've got to say first off that I really dislike Allen Key fittings, I can't ever seem to see the orientation of the hole when inserting the key, even when my eyesight was perfect, now that I need specs for close up stuff it's even worse.

However the wife has a new wheelchair which uses many Allen headed bolts for adjustment and so I want a decent set of the T bar type. I've noticed ...

 Post subject: Best tool for fitting architraves?
PostPosted: Thu Jan 31, 2019 1:26 am 
Do I need a finish nailer or is there something else cheaper and just as good? I'm trying to avoid pneumatic nailers and prefer to stick to electric/cordless ones.

 Post subject: What types of blades for a jigsaw
PostPosted: Tue Jan 29, 2019 8:18 pm 

I decided I need to buy an electric jigsaw. To date, I've only ever used hand saws. I prefer the control hand saws give you, but now I have a lot of things to cut.

I'm not a pro, just a DIYer, so I'm not splashing out a huge amount. I'm going to buy this one: ... 817_BQ.prd

Over the next few days I have ...
