    I need to order some footing blocks, what types?

    Poured screeds can go down to around 40mm, 25mm pipe cover.

    Cistern help please

    You could always try unscrewing the white collar to the left of the silver nut/ clippy bit and see if the floatvalve will lift out then.

    Hello from southern Scotland

    how long is the street, eg, could you crane over the top of other properties into site?
  6. but that's the thing with an impact- your wrist doesn't feel the torque...

    Guaranteed to cause a row....

    so it's the wee yellow buttons you need to press to test them, yes .
  8. ^ my mate got one of those and it's stonking. Not sure what it's ultimate torque really is, but the motor is chunky and it has no problems with 4" coach screws and the like. Seems as good as my 1/2" 18v DW. Oh and battery+ charger for £18 is cracking.

    Chimney Question

    does the TF kit not come with ties?
  10. Don't skimp on a few quid for bits. Heck, methinks you'll be shopping for a new drill sooner rather than later... Got a Lidl or Aldi nearby?

    That's what my chap wanted. I offered to get in 300s but he was happy to keep'em standard.
  14. The black box looks like it's a starting capacitor and if there's no voltage across it yet there's 240v coming off tthe PCB to the motor, then the motor's duff.

    Red's the colour.

    A bag of lime was the request, here.
