    They must be having a right laugh

    The story that he is senile is a load of republican rubbish? Sorry, we've all seen videos of him.

    Union jubilee

    Best you message your email address rather than publish it on an open forum, or put your chuck in the For Sale.

    Drill bits

    N.Z. used to brilliant for Japanese made kit - it's the nearest "Western" market to Japan and gets the new stuff.

    Drill bits

    In 1989 (I remember because we'd been to see Floyd in Wembley) I bought in a small hardware shop a set of three short Marples augers with a T handle. The little pouch was about 5" long and fitted in a pocket. Something like 10mm, 16mm and 25mm - obviously designed for pipework. You wouldn't have...

    Or get yourself a Milwaukee Fuel impact driver - there is a non impact setting on them. :)

    Dragons Den

    Time was you went to your bank manager with a good business idea, but now as my wife (40 years of working for banks) said long ago there is little banking any more it's just pawnbroking. If you haven't the assets you won't get the loan.

    Drill bits

    I've spent 50 + years not using any other for smaller holes in wood. Lip and spurs may well be better better but for 99% of uses decent ones aren't worth the price premium, and poor quality ones are not worth the metal they're made of.

    Routers

    Thank you but I suspect that's a different beast. Stick it on evilbay - I just sold a jigsaw and and a drill for parts and made decent money for things that were of no use/value to to me.

    Routers

    Some of the innards will be different, one being slightly larger and variable speed, but many will be the same. Besides, now I have another (and a POF50) mine'll not go wrong. :LOL:

    Routers

    I was thinking a couple of weeks ago that for what I use a router for now if a switch broke, I lost a 1/2" collet or something went wrong with my big Bosch it's 30+ years old so well obsolete and I couldn't really afford to replace it. It's primitive by today's standards but possibly better...
