Got a couple of bits from the middle aisle in Lidl

I've got one of those laser levels. I remember it was a lot of fun hanging curtain rails with it balanced on top of a box, on top of a step ladder that was balanced on top of a plastic folding table. They're perfectly level though so it clearly did the trick.

I keep looking for a soldering iron in my local Lidl but haven't seen one yet

The original 18v milwaukee radio is an absolute disco box, makes the makita radios look and sound like a 17 years olds car stereo. No dab, but if someone's got one cheap, snag it.

The second dab one is was OK, sound quality not as good or as loud.

No sure about this one, must be the third edition.

My 12v was decent, less offensive on site when other trades about. It was so good someone stole it. Hope they catch aids.

I think this one is called a jobsite radio and is smaller than the packout version (and £200 cheaper!)

The packout one looked pretty cumbersome and heavy and not really needed for me as it's only for having in the garden when having bbqs and pitha nights

Any markings on it to suggest who's made it for them? Be interesting to see if that company make any others.

For everbody with the milwankee m12 tyre inflator.

Does anybody find the gauge is pretty inaccurate? I can put it on, inflate, remove i.e up to 35psi. Then if i refit i.e to raise pressure a little for whatever, it shows a different pressure it will show lower i.e. 33psi and then it will pump up again to 35psi which is a higher pressure than registered when checked with another gauge.

Bit crap tbh maybe im expecting too much.

Ive been using it to overinflate and use my proper gauge to set.

Could it be losing that 2psi pressure when you remove it and reattach maybe? Not sure if the time it takes to remove and reattach would be enough to lose that pressure though

Its not uncommon for digital tyre pumps with auto cut off to do that.

They are trying to account for the line pressure vs tyre pressure - you know when you use a normal tyre pump and the gauge reads higher until you switch it off? Its a bit like that, and so you don't think its cheap shite they hold the last reading after the pump has stopped.

Also, I was unscrewing it the other day and figure you must drop half a psi during the unscrew. I need to buy one of the quick release adapters for it to see if it improves things.

I was recently in the market for an inflator and decided against the M12, mainly the 10 on 10 off duty cycle put me off, but lots of people online saying they don't last that long either, but perhaps they're not following that 10 on 10 off rule.
Bought an M18 one, complete overkill, but it inflates to what it thinks is the right pressure, stops and measures, then corrects. Does the M12 do that?

No the M12 just inflates to what it thinks is the correct pressure then stops, the correct way to do it is like your M18.

Never thought of it like that, makes sense.

@Touring_Rob For brake clean? I was looking at one of these for a quick clean of wheels and such. I hate cleaning cars so trying to make it easier with one for cleaning and another just to rinse, no hoses no faff.

Yes the Worth one is for solent brake/clutch cleaner, I don't think you can use a normal pump bottle for brake cleaner, guess the orings all die.

I have a few normal pump bottles which I use for tfr, and wheel cleaner etc. And it speeds things up nicely!

I actually can't remember. But the base will not stay locked in place for love nor money. The vibrations of it make the locking handle move round and unlock itself

Any recommendations on a decent yard/sweeping brush?

Want one that will last me. Not one that's made out of steel either @J-J 😂

My brush isn't made out of steel h'actually! Everything else is, but not the brush!

Get the bulldozer broom from screwfix. Don't get something too stiff at they're just a t**t to use.

I get wide wooden ones with hay looking bristles.. Replace the heads, they will always wear out..

Anything plastic seems to break after one winter.
