Many thanks

I have rediscovered my Aliexpress account and bought a pair from China for £7 inc postage based solely on one of the feedbacks that had postage pictures of the units fitted and working. Will report how dreadful they are once they arrive!

And they still haven't arrived, based on previous experience with Aliexpress this means the seller never had them in the first place and they were only listed to stop people buying from competitors whilst they get some more made.

Nah, they probably have shipped, but postie is sitting on it.

 

I got a refund at the 60 days mark for some switches. They turned up after 77 days. The seller had them and they were shipped in a timely manner, just stuck in the An Post mail centre at Port Laoise and the customs being slow cunts. Quickest I've from China has been 14 days (via Singapore Post). Quickest overall - A knock-off Honda HDS OBD thing from HK via DHL, 3 days. That shower at the Royal Fail can take 2 weeks to get something over to Ireland.

Very nice!

As far as spanners go, I’ve perused amazon to good effect. I got a nice set of long ratcheting box wrenches:

https://www.amazon.c...rds=jbm ratchet

And these, too:
https://www.amazon.c...lue spot wrench

I reckon both sets are good for the price.

Edit: Just googled that Facom Dynapact. Hold up... so it puts out what again? 1000 Nm?! That is a really serious piece of kit you have there. Congrats on the buy.

Old valve compressor ..from the era of side-valve engines.

^ reads 2H773

 

The screw is almost locked up. There's the tiniest amount of movement when adjustable spanner extensions are used on the wing nut, but really it needs heat and patience to free it off.

Anyone interested in it.. PM me with an offer + whatever the postage will be (or else collect from Ipswich).

I've found that in some recent cases it takes forever ordering from Aliexpress but the same thing via eBay comes in a week or so...

 

Also, the Aliexpress prices are not so consistently cheap either?

Some of their stuff is actually ok...bought a ratchet terminal crimp tool on Amazon last week, the Draper one was £24 with pretty good reviews and exactly the same tool but with Silverline printed on the handle was £7
It works perfectly.

Nothing, it's an impact wrench.

Well, I suppose the advantages might be...
  • No mains power source to plug in an electric rattle gun.
  • No compressed air source to use an air rattle gun.
  • Have a flat battery on a cordless rattle gun.
  • Have insufficient room to use any of the above rattle guns.
  • "old-school"

I've decided that I've been chancing my arm getting brake disc retaining screws out with a standard screwdriver for long enough, sooner or later my lucks going to run out, I deserve an impact driver!

 

I've never owned one of these but after a cursory glance on Ebay spotted this...

No idea on that one, but I have this Silverline impact driver:
https://www.toolstat...-bit-set/p90581

Biggest pile of wank out of all the tools I have ever bought. Thats from someone who has bought his fair share of crap tools. Literally it is utterly useless.

Handily the socket on the end and the bit fitted into my electric impact driver, so I kept it for the bits in the metal box.

I have a draper one, they are good but you need to preload the tension by turning them slightly before twatting it with a lump hammer.
