DEWALT DCK264P2-GB 18V 5.0AH Li-ion XR Brushless Cordless Nailer Twin Pack

I always open any package from DEWALT with slight trepidation, and the DCK264P2-GB (a name that simply rolls off the tongue) provided the office with a little extra panic as I wandered about with not just one but two nail guns in my hands, like some DIY mad Billy the Kid (unloaded of course; I’m not even trusted with a Nerf gun).

Wagner Universal Spray System W 590 FLEXiO and Wagner Universal Masking Kit Premium

After being formed in 1947 Wagner produced its first ever paint spraying gun in 1953 and are still making them over 60 years later, the Universal Spray System W 590 FLEXiO is a flexible sprayer for interior and exterior use. Created for larger projects where you want to spray both internal walls and other surfaces, there are two spray attachments one for low viscosity materials and one for high, and it can be used to paint walls, wood and metal.

DeWALT DCN680D2 Nailer Kit

Fancy taking your DIY skills up a level? Or probably the safer set of circumstances is that you already work with gear like this and won’t end up with stigmata in your hands. The DeWALT DCN680 is a brushless XR 18 Gauge Brad Nailer which comes with two 2.0Ah XR Li-Ion battery packs with state of charge indicator, a multi-voltage XR charger and the TSTAK-VI Heavy Duty Kitbox for storage and travel.

Fantasia Retro Mistral Desk Fan

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, but hey, I’m a horrible person.

Varidesk Corner Cube 48

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.

Hilti SF 8M-A22 Cordless drill driver

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.

Hilti PR 300-HV2S Dual Grade rotating laser

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.

Hilti GX 90-WF Fastening tool for wood framing applications

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.
