How to use a Dumpy Level
The Dumpy level is fixed to a tripod, then depending on the type of level, some are self levelling and some are levelled manually using the three turning screws at the base of the level, by moving these screws you will alter the position of the bubble in the two small spirit levels also found at the base of the level, you need to get the bubbles in the centre, once this is done turn the level on the tripod and make sure the bubbles are still in the correct position. The operator looks through the eyepiece of the telescope while an assistant holds a tape measure or graduated staff vertical on the point of where you want to set your level from, if for instance you were setting out a garage base you would place the measuring staff at the point or height you have chosen the garage floor to be at, then you look through the level and your operator can either make a mark on the staff or tape at the point of were the cross hairs of the scope fall, he can then move around to different areas of the site, when he reaches another point you want to create a level, you then look through the scope again while your man lifts or lowers the staff or measure until the cross hairs are back on the same mark, the bottom of the staff will be at exactly the same point as the previous position. You carry on with this process until you have all the level point you require to give you a true level platform to work from.

Marshalltown Trowels – V – OX Professional series
Marshalltown are at the forefront of manufacturing stainless steel trowels and floats, etc. Justifiably, they have charged accordingly for this equipment but now there is a competitor on the market also supplying a high quality range of stainless steel tools. The OX Professional series is now available with far more cost effective prices. But, is the quality as good? We have been running questions through to our customers who have bought OX tools and asked their opinion on what they think about the product. The feedback was that they were very happy with the OX Series and would definitely buy again. We also found that their range of spirit levels, which they claim is the strongest spirit level in the world, had brilliant feedback. The range includes 600mm, 900mm, 1200mm and 1800mm and, I must admit that having inspected these levels myself, you can really feel the quality.
What is the difference between sds plus and sds max?
The shank of the SDS drill bit that connects into the drill chuck, is the same for all SDS bits. SDS Max drill bits have an 18mm shank with three grooves that connect to the drill chuck by locking slots. SDS Max drill bits only fit SDS Max rotary hammer drills. You can use adapters to allow SDS Plus drill bits to fit these drills, but is not as effective as using SDS Max drill bits. SDS Max drill bit styles include tipped point and cross point for masonry and concrete drilling and chiseling. These drills are mainley used for more heavy duty work when larger holes need drilling and demolision is required by the breaker. The size of Drill Bits range from around 12mm up to 40mm.
The SDS Plus drill bit has a 10 mm shank with two open slots and two closed slots, and is held in the chuck by ball bearings. SDS Plus drill bits only fit SDS and SDS Plus drills. SDS Plus drill bit styles include tipped point for masonry and concrete drilling and chiseling. SDS Plus drills are used for lighter work with Drill sizes ranging from 5mm to 25mm.
Porta Nailer – Hardwood Flooring Nailer Information
View Prices – Machine & Nails
Instructions for the 402 Port Nailer
- Load your strip of Porta nails into the Porta-Nailer. Unhook the spring connector from the nail pusher, slide a stack of nails into the nail rail and hook the pusher spring back into position..
- Install the first two rows of flooring using the Porta-Nailer face shoe (included). This is necessary because there is not enough room to use the Porta-Nailer when starting the floor fixing.
- Then position the Porta-Nailer over the tongue on the third and subsequent floor boards. Use the rubber end of the hammer that is included with the Porta-Nailer to tap the flooring into place before you nail.
- Hit the rubber top of the Porta-Nailer with the metal side of the hammer. Strike the rubber cap hard enough to drive the nail all the way into the board and seat the nail. If the nail did not seat on the first blow, the rubber cap and ram will not return to the ready position until you hit the rubber cap again, driving the nail into the tongue. Once this is done, the ram will return to the starting position.

Decorating Tools – From Rapid Tools Direct UK
Most home owners collect a fairly extensive kit of tools for decorating their houses or flats. Although traditionalists will want to stick to tried and tested tools and materials, others may prefer to try recent innovations aimed at making the work easier and faster for the home decorator.
Tools for preparation
Whether you’re tiling, painting or papering, make sure the surface to which the materials will be applied is clean and sound.
Wallpaper and paint scrapers
The wide stiff blade of a scraper is for removing softened paint or soaked paper. A scraper with a blade 100 to 125mm wide is best for stripping wallpaper, while a narrow one, no more then 25mm wide, is better for removing paint from windows and door frames etc.
This is a special scraper for removing old paint and varnish. A combination blade shavehook is fine for scraping flat surfaces and concave and convex mouldings.
An electric hot air stripper softens old paint prior to removing it with a scraper. With most strippers, you can adjust the temperature. Interchangeable nozzles are designed to concentrate the air or direct it away from window panes.
You can use a hand brush with steel wire to remove flaking paint and rust from metal work before repainting it. However, the job becomes easier if you use a rotary wire cup brush fitted into the chuck of a drill. Whatever method you adopt, wear safety goggles or safety glasses to protect your eyes.
Most people wear ordinary household rubber gloves as protection for their hands when washing down or preparing paintwork – but tough PVC work gloves are more hardwearing and will protect your skin against many harmful chemicals.
Are used to inject decorators caulk between materials with different rates of expansion.
Low-tack self-adhesive tape is used to mask paintwork or glass in order to keep them free of paint when you are decorating adjacent surfaces.
Use fine sandpaper to smooth down surfaces in preparation for painting, it will give a great finish and is well worth the effort.

We have been selling Diamond Core bits for the last 15 years, and I have had plenty of problems with poor quality cores. One of the problems that customers have when they buy cores is that they all look visibly the same, if you’re not an expert.
