    If you know what size the missing tap is let me know. I may have an odd one for you from the loose taps I have collected over time. Even if it isn't the correct make it can complete the set visually.

    I have to agree. A Random Orbital Sander can just about replace both your rectangular orbital and belt sander.

    I picked up a Dewalt Cordless Drill and one of those screw driver things that it a bit like a mini rattle gun. Have not used the drill yet, but that screw driver thing walked some long screws into a fence that I was fixing like it was nothing. Totally different experience to using a drill as a screw driver. Also no damage to the screw threads despite wacking them in at a pace.

    I guess that means i am committed to Dewalt now in terms of cordless tools.

    I have one of these as well. Very happy with it.
    Was a gift from my father. We spend a lot of time together in the workshop, now that I think of it, I think I should dream up a project that we can build together. Hmmmm, maybe a little chair for his grandson.

    Piece of rubbish! You really wasted your money there. Throw it away.
    Everything is a hammer.
    Unless it is a screw driver.

    Then it it a chisel.

    I have a similar set, I suspect. The rattle gun is really good, but the drill has been a bit of a disappointment, to be honest. The hammer function doesn't disengage fully, so there is always a background hammering when drilling and drill bits do NOT like it at all.

    Are you sure you not hearing the torque setting which is set too low?

    You guys are talking about this drill driver Combo?
    It was on special so I jut had to. Done some work with both of them. I'm impressed, almost burned my hands with that chuck, didn't realise battery drills can have so much torq.

    Glad to see I am not the only one with a hardware problem. I have not even used the drill yet, but will do so tonight. That screw driver thing is a weapon though. No need to drill holes anymore for screws. You just put them in place and that thing drives them into anything.

    I suppose I shall have to round out the combo with the 1/2inch rattle gun soon. Such pressure.
