    Thumbs up for Makita tools. After years of struggling with cheapo drills and jigsaws I started replacing them with Makitas. So much easier to use, for instance the jigsaw actually cuts in straight lines!

    We had some building work done on the garage in the summer and I can no longer find the latter...
    When you say you can't find the latter, do you mean the garage or the summer?

    The garage. It’s hidden in the long grass now - I would mow it but the mower’s in the garage...

    I bought a Wolf cordless drill a while back, I wanted a fairly compact drill as I was doing some delicate work at the time and the Wolf is quite small although it does have a 3/8 chuck. I can't imagine it have the power to bore through concrete but for most things it's good and the battery lasts for ages.
    Slightly off topic but I've also got a Wolf soldering iron from the 1960's, quite a chunky old thing but brilliant for soldering nipples onto Bowden cable, saved loads of money on replacement cables for my many motorbikes over the years.

    There is a LIDL tools 'special' coming up on Sunday 14th. Here: https://www.lidl.co.uk/en/MiddleofLi...?id=845&week=2

    If you see anything you like pop in there quickly, as most of the good bits will go in a day or two.

    The cordless rotary tool is good. I have one.

    Don't need any of those tools at the moment, although the rotary tool looks handy. And the screws look like good value, the duct tape is about a third of the price of some places, and it's time I got some new socks, as Mrs. P is sick of darning me old ones.

    'tinypic' images gone missing!

    All the images I've posted using tinypic have disappeared. Whether this is due to hosting site maintenance or something else who knows? The ominous thing is that tinypic are owned by photobucket, who killed all unsubscribed images on their own site unless a 'ransom' was paid.
