  1. Self employed carpenter. Spent 15 years travelling around the country building and refurbing Aldi stores amongst other things. I got fed up of the mileage and work so now I work on the domestic side doing plastering, bathrooms and kitchens etc as close to home as possible.
  2. Its always worth trying to repair something. I fixed a makita multi tool the other day. A new motor of eBay was £20 or a new tool at £90. I've just fixed my chop saw by picking up an old one for pennies and then dismantled it for parts. I hate having to buy new
  3. You can get the 10.8v Makita drill driver and impact driver for about £120. If you're not going to use them often then I would store them indoors out of the cold.
  4. I've held my license for about 18 months now. When I went to the doctors last I asked out of interest if there was a note on my records about my sgc. He checked and said there was nothing on records that say I have sgc. Thats west mercia. I'm not looking forward to my renewal as the whole system seems to be inconsistent at best.
  5. I mix my time between domestic and site work. For private work I charge 160 a day. Site work could be anything between 160 - 400 a day depending on what I'm doing. I can earn twice as much applying silicone all day than when I'm on the tools (chippy) which is annoying. I made some gates in my garden and fitted them for 950 the other week. Midlands
  6. Its long overdue. As mentioned in a previous post the thc has been removed so nobody will be getting high.
  7. Dulux ultimate wood stain is the best stuff you can buy. It comes with a 10 year guarantee but its not cheap at £110 for 5 litres
  8. I've had my license for over 2 years now. I went to the doctors a few weeks ago and west mercia haven't notified by gp about anything.
  9. The dynaplugs look brilliant. I've just ordered some for the gloove box. I'm fed up of getting a puncture from screws on site
  10. I use an 18v Makita with no problems, but I also have 15 batteries. Hilti is as good as it gets so maybe look into getting your batteries refurbished. Not sure if they can be changed to lithium ion but might be worth inquiring about.
  11. Kitchens tend to last longer when they have been fitted correctly. Howdens aren't too bad for the price.
  12. That's extremely poor service. Sounds like the subbies have got annoyed with the job and disappeared hoping someone else will finish it.
  13. Pay peanuts get monkies
  14. I've been working on the construction and refurbishment of Aldi stores for the past 15 years. I've been shopping there about 10 times, and if I do I'm very careful about what I buy.
