    Reciprocating saws

    The best place I’ve found for multi tool blades Is Amazon. Compounded if one has a prime account, then the blades normally come with one day or so. I use Saxton blades. I found they are a good choice between cost and quality. I’ve got a corded multi tool, simply because I don’t work on sites without power and the cable on the tool is around 3mtrs long so generally plenty long enough.

    I’ve got the very model you have listed. Not used a great deal, but it’s excellent when used and got plenty of grunt. I already have a load of Makita 18v batteries so it sits well.

    SWB 10 inch brakes snail cam kit fitting?

    What’s the quality like on The aftermarket snail adjusters? They are 1/10 the price of the genuine land rover items. I don’t mind paying for the genuine Land Rover items but if the quality isn’t much greater than the aftermarket items I don’t see the point. Thoughts anyone?

    In a weeks time i will be in Cyprus

    One thing to look out for is the 4x4 safaris. Don’t do them Is my advise, you’re stuffed into a 12 seat 110 with no A/C for an afternoon. Have fun, it’s a great island. There are lots of little vineyards that welcome drop in guests to taste their wines. Oh and avoid the “British” restaurants the food is trash. The local Cypriot food is lovely , of great quality and great value

    There are loads of old landy in Cyprus. Depending where you are going, if it’s close to paphos or peyia then the akamas peninsula is stunning for off road driving. Suzuki jimny 🤬 or off road buggies are cheap to hire. Just take ski masks if you hire the latter! Or do what I did and hire a 7 seater because it was cheap and rag that about 😂

    Generators - need some help

    For a motor, eg compressor, the starting current Is generally 8x the running current. So you’re going to need a fairly big genset to run a smallish compressor just to cope with the start up without over speeding it to cope with the droop effect as the load comes on the genset during compressor start up

    Flat power tool batteries - what to do ?

    Buy a makita 18v lxt Drill and battery set. I’ve got the angle grinder and sds drill on the same battery platform. It’s all great kit

Good morning all, Im after suggestions for LED driving lights. i see a raft of them on ebay, however the choice is varied to say the least. anyone have any suggestions? im after around 150mm long 40-50mm wide. so they are discreet. hands up they arent for a landrover, thats got big 100watt spot lights across the roof bar, these are for my VW T5.1 cheers Jason

    High tensile bolts

    I would use 10.8 or 10.4 (can't remember the exact number) tensile strength bolts. Those were the bolts supplied when I fitted the towbar to my van. From

    300tdi revs dropping to 1500rpm

    to check for water I would see about draining the tank, water is heavier than fuel so will be at the bottom of the tank. Also check the sedimenter bowl.

    300tdi revs dropping to 1500rpm

    Put some diesel in it. I wouldn't trust the fuel gauge. Have you checked the air filter? Is it smoking? Have you had any work done to it recently? Check the intercooler hoses, they might be collapsing under vacuum.
