  • So my dewalts diamond falling apart, literally the fronts falling off, and I can't get the chuck off to see whats going on. Annoying as it's only about 3 years old. These days tools don't seem worth/designed for putting in for repair as the costs Vs new don't stack. Normally I'd just chuck $$$ at […]

It is rammed floor to ceiling with all manner of things and somewhere in front of the chap being served is the wonderful Frank at his counter peephole surrounded by stock. He must be in his […]
  • Thinking of getting a Runpotec XB300 cable dispenser, as my yellow framed tripod thing is unsatisfactory for all the usual reasons. You can screw in a "Runpostick" (Runpotec's version of super rods) to extend the stubby little mandrel so you can put several drums on (e.g. singles for conduit), I don't suppose anyone who has […]

  • While I have more testers of various ages that I know what to do with, I don't have anything that does a 2 wire no-trip loop test. Normally this doesn't bother me as in the past I've observed such tests are unreliable and rarely repeatable. The other day I had a commercial testing job with […]

  • I am considering a leakage clamp meter for use at my house. I am connected to the grid and have a separate solar setup. I live in Thailand where electrical installations aren't perfect. I have the feeling that one of the issues is leakage. So to further analyse I am considering a leakage clamp meter. […]

  • Don't worry I haven't gone (completely) mad. About a year ago a ride-on-lawnmower became over-friendly with my long RE test leads while I was drinking tea inside.
