    Makita or Dewalt

    Think you're getting a bit infused between models there mate. The 3ah bats are on the 18v model, the 12v one is a 1.5. Price on the 12 is comparable though so Ill have a look.

    Makita or Dewalt

    It is the wrench I need which in both the Dewalt and makita 10.8v's case is a 3/8 inch drive but if I'm going to get a new system then better to get the woodworking items at the same time.

    Formica laminate stockists

    IDS at Exeter or Swindon. You seem to be about in the middle of both depots.

    Makita or Dewalt

    I need an impact wrench so was going to just get the Ryobi one to go with my set but its expensive and my one series batteries are way past their best. Makita do one, think its a TW100d but at around £150 with two batteries I thought I'd get the 10.8v drill driver combo set with two bats for...

    RECORD PT260 problem. Have you got one..........

    Had similar problems with mine. It'll be the "safety" micro switches, they're a real PITA! There's one under the table bed which is pressed by the plastic collection hopper as you wind the thicknesser bed up. In the end I couldn't really see how this was adding to any safety aspect as I always...

    Big thanks to Mike Dempsey

    Well I could try but a few people at work have already seen the vid.

    De Walt planer thicknesser problem

    Just sounds like snipe to me. Relatively normal. There are ways around it but most people just live with it and machine stock longer than required to account for it.

    Big thanks to Mike Dempsey

    Took a trip up to Mike Dempsey's (acewoodturner) workshop yesterday. Made a little video of it here. Thanks again Mike.

    Odd electrical cable

    That makes sense about the earth I guess. Was just going off a Sparky at work who failed an item (granted portable) because it was a self/internally insulated electrical item but someone had at some point fitted it with a triple core cable and done just that, snipped the earth off in line with...

    Odd electrical cable

    Would do but there is no earth on the unit so don't want to add an additional wire in a redundant earth. If it's just heat shrink Id use I'll just use standard twin and earth heat shrinking the earth to a live colour.

    Odd electrical cable

    Correct Jonzjob. Ones a constant live and the other lives for a switch from say the bathroom light. All plastic body, two browns and a blue. Just can't find a cable with two browns and a blue.

    Odd electrical cable

    Picked up a bathroom fan with some others items at a auction. It's in as new condition apart from the wire which had had its white shroud stripped down most of the wire exiting the cable. Just needs a new cable wiring in but it's a double live single neutral cable that I can't find anywhere. Is...

    Computer problem

    Ah it's an iMac I'd be after. Never/rarely used the laptop which is why my son ended up with it. I hate mouse pads and small screens. I have an iPad and iPhone for mobility.

    Computer problem

    Ah have seen the second link from Nev. the issue sounds the same but I don't understand his solution, changing WPA to WEP?

    Computer problem

    Thanks for all the replies. I've been out and about replying to all this on my phone and it's a little tricky to go to links so I'll look at them later. Buy an iMac. That's exactly what I've been thinking lately. I seem to spend literally days per year trying to sort technical issue of a...

    Computer problem

    I too have an ATI graphics card that also (but not this time) tends to throw a wobbler with windows updates. I know how to rectify that with a utility called catalyst. Not interested in reinstalling the OS. I don't think that's a reasonable solution. It may well rectify it but that's somewhat...

    Computer problem

    Yes I suppose that's true it is two seperate issues. One the lack of access and two the breach of security. No I haven't tried booting in safe mode so will try that. I haven't run a malware programe as such but have done a full AVG scan where malware should be included. I was thinking that it...

    Computer problem

    All correct and yes I disabled the wifi in the laptop before trying the cable. I've also tried disabling all firewalls which made no difference. Needless to say they were switched straight back on. I'm stumped, the engineer too. Have used the laptop to enter the settings and change the password...
