Posted By: CerisyThe priority has to be a good quality laser level. Any suggestions please on what to look out for? Has anyone a level they want to sell or rent out?

Posted By: marktimeDoes what it says and converts the drill into a mechanised chisel.
Posted By: TriassicMy philosophy is use it till until it falls apart, recycle it and move on to another cheapo replacement.
Posted By: BeauI used a Stabila lazer level.
Posted By: TimberCPB - if the gun missfires, it is well worth taking apart the safety mechanism and clean, tweek and lubricate the parts. It should make it much more consisten. Sometimes it is just that a few bits are a bit of a sloppy fit and not constructed with much care. You can normally fix that.I have a cheep brad/staple gun and a big beast that fires up to 90 mm nails and both have been fine. They just need a tweek every so often to keep them in good working order. A spray of WD40 into the air line adaptor on the gun helps every so often.
Posted By: CerisyThe need for the laser level is that I am doing the foundations so need to ensure that they are spot on level for the frame guys. I'll look at the Bosch range - thanks.
Posted By: CerisyBeau - just to show my ignorance!! - what is the difference in an impact screwdriver and a normal drill / screwdriver? Seen them advertised, just never worked out why I would need an impact version!

Seen them advertised, just never worked out why I would need an impact version!The key difference is the rotational speed. Impact drivers are much higher so far better for self drilling (Torx) screws.
