    Bound to happen.
    Screwfix had a clearance event and I had a discount voucher, so I now have an erbauer brushless combi as well.
    Can't help myself.

    Bit too late but I was gonna say:AEG,Milwaukee. and the pocket buster Hilti. If at all possible with at least 4Ahh batteries and you will go all day. My 18V AEG is about 8 or9 years old and I have just recelled the batteries with 4 Ah, unbelievable power and service. I have a shed full of Makita, Bosch, a couple of Dewalts with some of the collection going back to when 7.2V were state of the art. all suffer the same --Battery exhaustion and the unbelievable price to recell or replace them.

    Decided on a 240v DeWalt in the end.
    On offer at Screwfix and I had a 10% off voucher, so came to 72.
    Wasn't sure about the keyed chuck, but I will live with it.

    not a bank robber, good advice re. explosives or heat, decent safes have devices that detect that sort of attack and lock themselves up even more!

    the good old gut buster, hated using them when i first started work.
