Recently my friends requested our help with decorating their house. Why they thought our help wouldn’t make things worse is beyond me, in fact I think they had to re-paint the majority of our handy work - plus extra on the door frames and skirting boards as it turns out we were terrible at cutting in!

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.
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.
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.
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. The motor unit will blow filtered air down over your face at a rate of 160L/min, keeping the inside of the mask cool and promoting normal breathing.
With our small electronic devices becoming more powerful, we can find ourselves spending long hours hunched over a tablet or small netbook and this position can wreak havoc with you posture and cause pain in the neck and shoulders. The Ergo-Q 260 Notebook stand has been designed to significantly improves the sitting posture, reducing neck strain by 32% and improving comfort by 21% (Lindblad, 2002).
