  1. What is the milwaukee storage like?
  2. Milwaukee are an interesting company. They do appeal to me for their large range of products. I like the fact the battery charger can charge a m12 and a m18 battery.
  3. Lol we gone way off topic. @BMack37what's your most go to tool?
  4. Well I thought I'd ask what everyones favourite drilling bits and screwdriving bits are. Right now I am looking at buying the bosch X line 100 piece set as it looks like good value for home diy and projects. What does everyone else use?
  5. @BMack37 Was a 40inch tv. I was told by everyone to scrap it but just didn't have the money to buy a new one at the time.
  6. @Eric - TIA I know you guys are busy but I just wanted to let you know that if you ever need to ship to Ireland this option is the best. Like I said before I would love to get some gear and stickers and I have no problem paying the shipping for TIA gear totally worth it.
  7. I have a Toshiba tv that the backlight went on so I had to have one of the led strips replaced. Didn't realise it cost so much. 150 for the strip to be replaced. I have a Samsung tv about 2 years older that has lasted longer than I would ever have expected. Hence why I went with Samsung again.
  8. Oh no, I just bought a Samsung curved tv recently. Touch wood it won't have this happen to it.
  9. For diy and other less heavy duty work would the milwaukee be up to it? I mean that fuel is heavy duty work. For a good drill for home use would the non fuel version be a better choice?
  10. @FrosBros82 Is there much of a jump in performance from the brushless m18 milwaukee to the fuel version?
  11. I know you guys at Tools in Action like a good light system so I wanted to show you guys a company I have bought from and used their lights on a regular basis. The company name is Unilite. They are based out of England and build quality products. Today I am going to talk about the Prosafe PS-IL6R. A lot of this is copy and paste from their own site but they say it better afterall. The PS-IL6R is a powerful rechargeable inspection light that has a multitude of features. Its Samsung SMD LEDs provide 600 lumen of power that is perfectly optimized for close inspection work. In addition to this there is also a 100 Lumen torch function which provides a focused light on small and hard to reach areas. The unit is ergonomically tailored, with a well-placed moulded grip and encompasses some useful hands free options, such as its 360-degree positional magnetic hanging hook and its multi positional foldable kick stand. Charging is conducted via the DC-USB (Included) cable which connects to the rear charging point allowing for 12/24v charge, smartphone or computer charging. Super bright SMD LED The PS-IL6R is a super bright SMD LED Inspection light & IP54 fully weatherproof for all conditions. Offering superb beam clarity unrivalled performance, power & portability. DC-USB rechargeable the PS-IL6R can be used just about anywhere, anytime for any application. SMD LED’s give off a vast light spread. More energy efficient they also increase battery run times. Place your PS-IL6R anywhere anytime with this super strength magnetic hanging hook. The 100 Lumen torch head enables users to inspect closer in more confined spaces than ever before. USB charging allows for faster charging on the go, inside a vehicle or via any smartphone charger. Additional information Brand Prosafe Battery 1 x 4400 mAh USB Li-ion LED Samsung Lumens 600 Beam Distance 60m Run Time 4 hrs 30 mins IP Rating IP54 Weight 260g Height 205 mm Width 60 mm I have personally used this light for illuminating walls for painting to working on parts in the car engine. Anyone in Europe should check out this brand as most inspection lights mechanics especially use these days are by Draper. This is an alternative brand with better build quality and products. I also have the Unilite PS-P1 Pocket inspection light. I will put this up also.
  12. Here is the two options I am currently thinking ---> https://www.milwaukeepowertools.co.uk/milwaukee-m18blpd-401c and http://www.ebay.ie/itm/Bosch-18v-GSB18V-EC-Brushless-Combi-Hammer-Drill-GSB18VEC-Metal-Chuck-1-x4-0ah/311873399851?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649.. Let me know what ya think. The Milwaukee is a small bit more but if it's worth it then I don't mind.
  13. Yeah I think cordless sanders need a smaller battery like 1.5 or 2.0 to keep them balanced. I'd say a cordless sander would be easier to use on the lighter jobs.
