Working in an office can be a pretty uncomfortable environment even without the arguments over who’s turn it is to make the tea. Summer time in our office, without air conditioning and south facing windows, means it quickly turns into a green-house environment by lunch time. Having your own desk fan makes life slightly more bearable, and knowing my body odour and farts are blowing onto the person behind me gives me a weird sense of power (Editor’s note: I am this sufferable victim), but hey, I’m a horrible person.

We’re all sitting down too much - the average for an office worker is 10 hours a day - and there’s a mountain of research that says this is increasing our risk of heart disease, diabetes and obesity to name but a few. So whether it’s for health reasons or because you want to be able to spy on the next cubicle, standing desks are becoming more and more popular. But buying a completely new desk is a hassle and standing permanently may not be practical, so what you need is a height adjustable standing desk converter - and that's where Varidesk comes in.
The Hilti SF 8M-A22 is the boxing equivalent of Manny Pacquiao; they are both small but pack a hell of a punch. They also don’t need to be plugged into the mains. The Hilti SF 8M-A22 is a Cordless drill driver with an innovative self-tightening metal chuck and comes with 85 Nm of torque, virtually eliminating the risk of drill bits slipping especially in high torque applications.
I will kick this review off by saying that this is the most quality built rotating laser I have ever reviewed. Considering how delicate the components are inside, Hilti have protected this unit to the best of their ability. The drop-resistant housing of the Hilti PR 300-HV2S Dual Grade rotating laser has four shock absorbing handles allowing it to survive drops from up to 1.5 metres, which after much deliberating, I did test and glad to say the device is still in one piece.
Nailed-on to be one of the safest gas-actuated nail guns I have used, may I introduce you to the Hilti GX 90-WF fastening tool for wood framing applications. The GX 90-WF has been fitted with a jagged tool nose with a safety sleeve that significantly reduces the risk of free flying fasteners and a visit to A&E. The GX 90-WF offers a nail roughly every three seconds which isn’t as quick as other nail guns I have reviewed but each gas canister can deliver over 1000 fixings with each magazine holding up to 75 nails.
The Axminster APF 10 Evolution Powered Respirator is a positive pressure powered respirator that aims to eliminate the drawbacks of a standard negative pressure face masks.
