 Post subject: Bosch GEX RO sander
PostPosted: Fri Nov 09, 2018 6:35 pm 
I bought one of these about a year ago. It gets a reasonable amount of use, heavy DIY. It has started to chuck of the velcro discs (I use klingspoor ones) seems a bit early for a change of the sanding plate to be honest.

Any suggestions?

PostPosted: Wed Nov 07, 2018 6:16 pm 
ive got a canny few dewalt xr batteries. 2 of them are completely goosed. they are the 4ah batteries that i got with my first fix nailer on trial back in 2012. so theyve had a good life.

the other 2 that are a bit goosed are from 2015.

the 2012 batteries from flat will be fully charged in like a couple of minutes. and they are weak as p*ss too.

so recently i spotted ...

 Post subject: Fitting Starlock Multitool bladed to dewalt multitool
PostPosted: Mon Nov 05, 2018 7:45 pm 
Hi, I have a dewalt corded oscillating multi tool 315 model with the quick change fitment. The tool is excellent but I’ve been offered some starlock blades. I appreciate that these do not fit but I was wondering if there are any adaptors available to fit the starlock blades.

All the info I can find about starlock says backwards compatible with dewalt using adaptor but I can find no mention of this adaptor online.

Thanks ...

 Post subject: Ryobi One+ Lithium Charger
PostPosted: Mon Oct 22, 2018 11:21 am 
I'm having some issues with my latest Ryobi charger, it's the RC18150 'Super Fast' version and maybe a couple of years old now.

I plug it in and the red light comes on fine, plug in any battery I have (4.0ah & 5.0ah) and the red light still stays on solidly, no blinking, no green light, just solid red light.

Does this mean that the charger is not detecting the battery? I've cleaned all of ...

 Post subject: What tools do we make in Britain now?
PostPosted: Fri Oct 19, 2018 5:16 pm 
I was just looking to see if I could get an age on an old "Henley Tyres" tyre pressure gauge I found in the back of a drawer in the garage. (I knew it was there, but had more or less forgotten it!)
Anyway I came across this page with loads of old tools on it. Looks a bit like parts of my toolkit! :lol:

 Post subject: Identify tool and it's use?
PostPosted: Thu Oct 18, 2018 4:10 pm 
Found this tool at a car boot, It's branded as Cable Pro the widest part is an inch and is
attached to a regular screwdriver type handle via a cranked shaft.
Somewhere in my memory it reminds me of a tool to fish an individual cable from a tight loom/harness
(Might've been a dream)
I've googled Cable Pro images but I can't find it.

 Post subject: Problem with Hitachi NR90GC2 nail gun
PostPosted: Tue Oct 16, 2018 11:42 pm 
Good evening I recently purchased a Hitachi NR90GC2 nail gun. On arrival I read the manual, charged the batteries, loaded the gas and nails that came with the tool. Pressed the tip against a test piece of wood and nothing happened. The fan never started and it obviously then wouldn't fire any nails. I swapped batteries and gas and still nothing. Eventually I sent it back and it must have been faulty as the retailer ...

 Post subject: Milwaukee vs Bahco ratcheting screwdrivers
PostPosted: Tue Oct 16, 2018 8:29 pm 
Good evening everyone,
A few weeks ago I got to use a friend of mine's Snap-on, and I have to admit that I quite liked it. At the moment I am looking for something a little cheaper but still relatively good (not too bad). I've not heard a lot of bad things about Bahco and I don't know much about Milwaukee's line of hand tools. I like the Bahco's pistol grip handle and the Milwaukee's ...

 Post subject: Help with a core drill
PostPosted: Tue Oct 16, 2018 8:15 pm 
Hello everyone,
Basically I am in the market for a drill I will use for occasional core drilling. I still have a DeWalt D21570K but this drill has been nothing but trouble, plus, the safety clutch on mine's useless. Won't some other power drill that has a safety clutch do the job? A more powerful SDS+ one might do the job too, who knows? Sparkys are quite popular where I am now, but I remember ...
