the caulking gun seems expensive for the amound of effort it saves
one person says its great and 2 a waste of time
so i am assuming they are moaning because the bead is uneaven this will be caused by there uneven swing rate rather than the powerd continuous feed rate


From the bolded part, do I assume you know two people with one they don't want?

I am trying to buy one on ebay and just missed out on one for £24 including postage because I forgot the lot was closing!

That is inexcusable not having an impact driver. Shame on you.

is that because you want to be able to get two hands on it?

I think the recip saw is excellent, and I was really suprised how well it goes with the batteries.

thanks.

looking at that site, i can get two 1.4ah lions for £100
or one 2.4ah for £75

do you use lions? How do these two types of battery compare to the ni-cad's I have? I don't really know how to translate a cash value to the ah numbers :scratch:

i have 3 x 2.4ah li-ons and 8 nicads [2x1.5 4x1.7 and 2x 2ah]

i realy need to loose at least 4 nicads and 2 charger

at the min i use the nicads as you need to cycle them every few weeks to help them hold there charge
i only use the lions when i have loads of planing routing circular sawing you know all the heavy drainers

one thing to note is the lions have parralell sides top to bottom where as the nicads taper in slightly which means the fluro lamp will not easily fit the lion batteries you need to be quite brutal so i dont use them on the lamp although with use it seemed easier and got one in without feeling overly tight
