    Default The last tool you purchased thread.

    Fairly self explanatory and every time you buy a new one you can post it up here.

    Today I purchased this from ebay. 620 new and I got this one which supposedly has had 'very light use' for 200. And the guy only lives about 5 miles from me.

    So what was your last purchase?

    This app a few minutes ago, which should pay for itself on the current job alone.

    I'm getting lazy!

    THIS is the one I got although I got it for 38 and not the 66 they are selling it for now.

    Its quite good and pretty much matches my expectations of it insofar as I expected it to be handy for going round buildings drilling 6mm holes an inch and half deep for floor mounted door stops and the like.
    I've put door casings into engineering brick walls with it and it doesn't last long per charge drilling 7mm holes 100mm deep in that.

    I have an identical saw, I use it all the time. I fairly regularly cut steel, ally and stainless up to 3"" bar and 4"" box. The blade speed isn't all that high so they don't run especially hot. Blades are 5 for 30 quid, so maximising blade life isn't as critical as in a production shop. For me, it improves quality, as if I scrap a job on the lathe I don't spend ages trying to recover it in order to avoid cutting another chunk of 2"" bar with a hacksaw.

    Yeah they're certainly good at what they do...it just struck me as odd that someone would even manufacture one that doesn't have cooling capability.

    I used to think that but then I worked somewhere that had one that didn't use coolant and was surprised how quickly it cut and how long the blades lasted.

    Get it cutting, amble off and do something else. When its finished set the cut up again. Repeat.

    I've been wanting to do more woodwork for ages and having spent the last week watching a combination of Paul Sellers and WranglerStar I have decided to do something about it and get the right stuff to upgrade my shocking work bench to a proper one. DIY style.
    First things first is I don't have any clamps, which brings me onto this thread quite neatly. Rutlands Tools have a sale on at the moment. 54" Sash clamps, 6 for 40% off!!!! 139 down to 50 something. They have just arrived, along with a four pack of carpenters saws and 170 brad point drill bits, also on special offer.
    Still to come is;
    Panel beaters (chiselling hammer) as recommended by Paul Sellers.
    Marking Guage and some other minor items.

    Next stop, wood shop to buy some timber.

    Might need to clear the shed out first...
