Interested to know if these are any good or not knew someone thst had the older plastic style but felt a bit flimsy to me for everyday use
Not found an excuse to properly use it yet (poor effort I know), but it certainly has a good weight to it and feels a robust unit.

I’ve got one of the cheap Sealey ones and tbh it’s great for the money. A mate bought one afterwards and uses it daily stripping cars at scrap yards and it’s taken some proper abuse in its stride.

I use the milkorkwee grinder ALOT more than I thought I would. For little quick cuts it's brilliant, absolutely f**k getting the extension out and plugging one in for a little 2 second cut.
Use it pretty much daily at work i should really invest in 12amp batteries but too tight to pay over 300 for the 2. The boss has them and holy crap they make a huge difference to the power of the impact guns

I wouldn’t buy anything that needs some grunt by them but the ratchet is fine for what it’s intended for. Crack the bolt of with it and then use it

I’ve got a Sealey and a Milwaukee grinder.
Never had any issues with the Sealey not cutting, for the money it’s actually pretty decent. Use it for all the shitty jobs, went through some 1 inch plate the other day no problem.
 
When me and my family were in holiday in Turkey they were mastic'ing some tiles back in place. Me, my dad and grandad were all just stood there telling him how to do it because he was making a right dog dick of it🤣🤣

It has arrived

Feels like its going to be my favorite new tool.

Wondering if I should cut up the box plastics, would be nice to have the ratchet in the same case as the impact as they will usually be carted about together

Or maybe I should buy some foam and get cutting.....

Use my grinder prety much daily never gives up and you can really lean on it. Batteries dont last that long when you do but that is fully expected
Yeah I usually only use it for cleaning things up or a few quick zip cuts. It just saves me getting out an extension too.

Not sure what to get next, someone needs to bang some pics up of their collection for me to get horny at🤣

I really.domt know what to get next.
I have an old SDS drill which is fine for what I use it for round the house. Only thing I can think of getting is a multi tool but then again I'd be getting it for the sale of it 🤣

The 1/2 is big enough for anything I do. I'm not on heavy plant, the biggest bolts I have to undo are M20 and thats not a common thing🤣

Thats what I was thinking next a M18 multitool. I'm justifying all these tools on the fact that you buy them once and thats it, you've got it for a fair few years
