    Ooh when the batteries work they're great. It's when they degrade to half their old lifespan and reduced peak voltage you realise the issue. Particularly when you can't buy new ones. Yes Gtech I'm looking at you.

    Oh yeah, didn't post up all my power tool purchases. What I ended up with:

    • Makita DHS680Z 18V Li-Ion LXT 165mm Brushless Circular Saw (Amazon) - £129
    • Makita DHP482RTWJ 18V LXT Cordless Combi Drill w/ 2x 5Ah (Toolstation) - £145.98
    • Makita DTD153Z 18v Brushless Impact Driver (Fastfix via eBay) - £62.80


    Obviously a big whack of spend, but should last me 20 years fingers crossed! And saved a bit on standard prices with the deals/vouchers.

    Nice.
    A lesson learned from PeterB about dignity in adversity, so Peter, In Memorium, "Onwards and Upwards".

    Update time! Slow progress and no pictures, because it's barely changed how it looks. After attempting to use the jumbo sized concrete bolts I was forced to admit defeat and downsized to some M8 x 80mm ones. There were actually a better fit for the brackets, and tbh plenty large! So the sleepers are now sitting on the damp course and bolted to the floor.

    Next up, putting together a wall. Not sure when though!

    And the impact driver is very effecting and very loud driving bolts into concrete. I was actually 'fully PPEd up' with protective glasses, gloves and earplugs for a change. Just missing steel toecaps to complete the set, which I've been meaning to get for a while and probably should so I can rest a wooden wall on my foot when moving it...
