BOSCH impact driver and drill 18v 5 ah for $450 is the deal of the century .
Nah if u want half decent cheap shit AEG is actually not too bad. Its rumoured to be made in Milwaulkee factorys. I know tradies who use it on a professional level. I wouldnt. But for round the home its far better than ryobi or ozito.

Me too, and a wee chainsaw. I have a Stihl scrub bar, hoping I can find a hedge cutting attachment for it- although it will probably be too heavy for me to use. Omg, it will be awesome though.

its kinda a hard choice between complete crap cheap or high quality-cheap, cos if you go for the top of the range handyman tools they are still handyman, and wont last forever, i have a grinder i got for $15 from supercheap $10 years ago, admittedly i dont use it too often, as i have a hitachi as well, and it has no guard, so is useless for carving, but ive been expecting it to fuck out since i first bought it, and its still hanging about.

kinda gotta bit of beef with ozito tho, those fuckin things are junk

I find it's best to buy hand and power tools I need to actually work from proper trade stores and anything else can come from Bunnings as most of it is single or occasional use stuff I'll just add to the pile.

Ozito have apparently upped their game with that new 18v stuff, and you can always take it straight back no questions asked if it's garbage.

yeh, i dunno, i bought a battery drill and 'renovator' tool a couple of years ago, which went well for a while until the chuck seized open, the renovator tool is of limited use, but that my fault for buying it, not theirs, my ex had one of their orbital sanders which shat itself after not much use, and my dad has had one of their belt sanders which fucked out when i was using it too.

im fuckin tempted to buy one of these, even if it fucks out i can mount the sanding attachment on a better bench grinder, cos you cant buy just the attachment for that price.

Corded drills any good? I don't need to be away from a plug and there seems to be a pretty massive price difference. Nothing profesh, mostly just wood-screws and the like.

Typically speaking, the only powered drills you get these days are heavy duty, hammer action types for steel and concrete. If your screwing into timber you want something with way less torque, the gearing systems on less powerful battery drills are better suited.
Drilling holes? Then dw about gearing. But for putting in various types of fixings into different timbers, then the electric drills will stitch ya up.
Putting in tougher fixings, like roofing screws with electric drills can totally fuck your wrists too, as with no gearing, theres no clutch and they can do damage when they jam up.

I just stick with Ryobi for the few tools I do need, borrow off builder mates on the rare occasions that I need something heavy duty.

Have a Ryobi cordless electric lawnmower. Couldn't be fucked with a petrol mower when we were buying, and there wasn't much else cordless available. I'm pleasantly surprised with how well it goes. It's light as fuck too, and you can have a conversation with someone without having to shut the thing off.

About to get stuck into sorting out the backyard. Tempted to build a mini ramp, though plywood doesn't seem to be getting any cheaper. Is it still a normal thing to be able to scrounge cover sheets from timber yards? Are dedicated timber yards even still a thing?
I think it's lint.

some industrial areas put out plywood boxes, can get some quite large sheets for free, i get thru a lot of plywood, but i just get a sheet everytime i need a trailer, its cheaper to buy a sheet of ply and take home the courtesy trailer, than it is to just hire a trailer, so i usually have a few spare sheets of the cheap stuff.

my olds just bought me this

which is an oddball thing indeed, but should be very useful for carving and all the other weird shit i do.

im still weighing up that ozito belt sander, i have decided id be better to build a linisher, but i still think for $90 il get my moneys worth.

I've had my idea on this for a while. No idea on quality though https://www.bestdeals.co.nz/online-shog ... er-11.html

that does look like the business, for that price at least.


however, ive decided il make one of these today, and that solves my immediate problem, i can replace the stones/paper with a decent file to do bevels if i need to, and then il look at building a linisher attachment for a benchgrinder i already have.

the ozito was really just a stopgap, something i can afford right now and im told stands up to light use, and has a no questions asked warranty.
but the sharpening jig is all i need today, i need to put edges on some blades that have never had any, and like 99% of people i suck at sharpening knives anyway, so im sure i wont regret making it.

I'm pretty sure there is a single design they just swap out colours for different companies. Seen quite a few different companies selling them,

the shogun actually has a different design on the bit that folds up, giving the platform extra support for when the linishing belt is upright, im fair convinced i want it, but i dont think im gunna have the money before the special finishes

What Dave said. Fuckin sound advice. Considerable price difference but you can get a decent DIY cordless drill, charger and battery for pretty fuckin cheap now. Still more expensive than the cheapest, shittiest corded drill you'll find in shops but the clutch on them alone makes it worth it for what you're needing it for.

actually, watching this video, im not sure im into it.


i was getting a bit angsty that im not gunna have the readies by next tues(when the special for that shogun you posted ends, i will on wed tho, haha) but im thinking i might be better off going another route.

i dunno if you saw my thread in that same group about the ozito, but from what i was told there i came to realise that the reason people home make belt grinders is for the larger belts, more range of grits, better quality and cheaper, i had been wondering.
thats all this attachment does, but is it cheaper than just making one? and look how much it shakes around, most of the home build guys are very keen to show off how solid their grinders are, and i have a feeling il get very pissed off with some dinky plasticky thing wobbling around, i already hate my dremel scroll saw for that reason
