  1. Flat power tool batteries - what to do ?

    I think this is looking likely, maybe impact driver drill set and see what Black Friday can provide.
  2. Flat power tool batteries - what to do ?

    Sorry should have said this is nicd. Zapping seems dangerous and I understand lithium batteries may / will explode if zapped. The videos only do it with nicds.
  3. I have Bosch 14.4 v cordless drills with 2 battery packs. Both are preety much dead. Do I: a) ‘zap’ them with 24v from somewhere because doing things you see on the Internet is always a good idea b) Refurb company £70 for 2 c) New batteries from eBay £30 for 2 (too cheap ?) d) New battery from Bosch (£70 each ) ouch e) Take apart and look for dead cell - not sure I fancy this option f) New drill for Christmas with a battery that lasts longer If I get a new battery plan to set up a charger station with a timer plug to keep them topped up once a week.
  4. Ctek comfort battery charge indicator

    I think I’ll order one. I have bucket seats and it’s a pain to get to the battery.

I need something to remind me when I haven't used the landy enough.
  6. At night the idea with headlights is you can see the road. Drls the idea is people can see you in the day. The drls tend to be brighter but not focused as much. A good led drl in the daylight should draw more attention than a standard head light. I retro fitted drls to one of my cars (decent job not £5 Halfords) and it was much more visible.
  7. Share your LR Plan(s) for 2017

    Okay got the lock box in (pretty much) and the Stereo. Not going to make it with the seat box. How is everybody else getting on as we get to the final stretch before 2018 list time? :-)
  8. The actual article is if your car left the factory with something by enlarge that thing is supposed to be working for the MOT. That’s pretty standard.
  9. Defender Door Hinges

    My drivers side bottom hinge has a lot of play going to give this a go. Anyone have any pictures ?

    Bolts and braces approach Lock and load I can’t believe it’s not shattered
  11. Need a Product name for my newest product !

    I’ll throw “Tough Tabs” in. I’m sure at some point I’ll start throwing in things people have already suggested as tough hard bolt diff kit words swirl round my brain. Just delete those if I do that.
  12. Need a Product name for my newest product !

    I think tab loc is a good one. If your web page has all the right words on it search enigines will find it anyway. I wouldn’t call it “diff strength upgrade kit for mostly arb diffs but also others as well bolt boosters” just to keep the search engines happy.
