 Post subject: Cordless drywall screwdriver...?
PostPosted: Tue Oct 17, 2017 2:02 pm 
Following on from graemeuk's thread about fixing plasterboard -

insulating-inside-garage-walls-little-help-t91240.html

I am thinking about the feasibility of getting an autofeed screwdriver as I may have a couple of big ceilings to board out shortly (14m x 18 each roughly)
so would appreciate any help, having never used or even seen one in use...!
I won't be using it much as rarely do I do any boarding so ...

 Post subject: Are replacement parts available for manual nibbler tools?
PostPosted: Mon Oct 16, 2017 1:35 am 
I broke the lower cutting part of my manually-operated nibbler. Are those things sold separately and if so what they are called? It looks like the nibbler can be taken apart to replace this section.

I didn't use it often enough to be worth replacing entirely but if replacement lower-jaws are available then I'll buy one; otherwise I guess I'll just throw it out and use a different tool entirely in the future.

Thanks.

 Post subject: Using impact bits in a regular combi drill
PostPosted: Sun Oct 15, 2017 4:46 pm 
Hello,
I'm wondering if it is acceptable to use Impact Driver drill bits in a regular combi drill without any disadvantages or potential issues down the line like the bit snapping due to stress?

I've been told that using regular full size drill bits in an impact driver has a disadvantage related to the increased chances of cam-out, but are there any disadvantages to using impact bits in a regular drill?

PostPosted: Sat Oct 14, 2017 5:43 pm 
Done a little research into this, and so far I'm still not 100% what tool to buy.

In the coming weeks I'm due to construct a workshop from timber, and figured the an Impact Driver would be more suited to this job than an Impact Wrench...or would it?

As such and I really should have one for the garage to work on the car, I don't have an Impact Wrench. Question is will an Impact ...

 Post subject: Decent knee pads
PostPosted: Thu Oct 12, 2017 9:12 pm 
Evening everybody,
Had to tile a pretty large floor area yesterday and today my knees sting like crazy. I've been using some gel stuffed pads for about a year now, but I think they do more harm than good. What pads do you use for tiling? I am open to suggestions.

Thank you.

 Post subject: Dewalt 385 reciprocating saw - playing up
PostPosted: Wed Oct 11, 2017 1:49 pm 
I thought it was the battery, but it isn't. Seems to have lost a lot of power and it stops working altogether when on its left side.
I am guessing that this is a terminal fault, but just in case anyone knows what is up and has an idea for a fix?
Cheers
Nick
