Well at full load and length of the extension lead you're gonna get around 20 volts, volt drop that's not including what's going on with the circuit supplying the lead so it could start to have issues. I do agree with what load it is (inductive/resistive) and like you said above about them generally being 10 amp would make more sense.
As for daisy chaining extension lead not something that i would advise seen to many people thinking they can plug far too much in.
I agree. I still think its a good deal. I'm somewhat surprised that it went so cold, especially when no-one could find a better deal that didnt involve daisy chaining. Well it's on the record if anyone needs one.

Must get a bit of volt drop on the these.
That depends on the diameter of the conductor in the cable and the current drawn.
I'm still unable to find a better deal on a 50m 13A length, which makes me wonder why it has gone so cold.
Well max current will be 13 amps and conductor size will be only 1.5mm , but let's be honest after you have plugged into a circuit and reeled out it will start to suffer volt drop even if not a lot of current is being pulled.
It's directly proportional to the length, so twice the drop of one half the length. However, the Volt drop is also proportional to the current drawn and since most loads likely to be used are inductive (motors), the voltage leads the current by a significant phase angle meaning the current drawn will peak when the volts are at a lower point in the cycle and the voltage will peak when the current is at a lower point in the cycle, so the volt drop at maximum voltage will be significantly less than for a purely resistive load (kettles). Also I'm suspecting the people who made it know what they are doing.

Ours took a bit of fettling to get some of the bolt holes to line up - but once assembled it is sturdy enough. The missus is hardly overloading it though (she's using it to transport top soil).
Paddy said, "I want to try that wheelbarrow position tonight."

His wife asked, "What is that?"

Paddy told her, "You bend over, put your hands on the floor Then I pick your legs up from behind!"

His wife said, "Hmm, okay, I'll do it on two conditions. First, if it hurts you stop immediately and, second, ... we don't go past my mother's house!"

Very reliable, had one of these for years. It's only 0.6W but if anything it's a little bright for our landing so I made a little card lampshade for it which also softens the look of it for our period house.
Great idea for hallway and landing while on holiday.
Good find.
Not sure I agree with the description of sleek - looks rather over-engineered to me.
I bought the same item three years ago at the Ideal Home Exhibition - it's still working well and is used daily in a fairly dark dorridor. It switches off as expected in daylight and is always there at night. I'd certainly buy again.

You can get pretty decent GU10 LED bulbs for £1 in Poundland, I've got three in the spots on my kitchen and I'd say that the 5w version is almost too bright, would recommend going for the 3w (or was it 3.5w) version they're selling
You can get 10 in a pack for £20 in Asda and they are dimmemble. I bought 2 packs and replaced all of the ones in bathroom and kitchen. They are fab and much brighter.

cool white 297lm and

5W at 435 - 450 lm, but thems about a pound more each.

Colour temperature of 3000k, 4000k, and 6000 Kelvins respectively! for those who ask.

CERTAIN to be better (for my mum) than the 3 x 60w they replace.

yes you can.
Depending upon your brake manufacturer/materials used the squeal may be normal when applying brakes or it could indicate worn pads/rotors.
However based on cost and time this is the first thing to try out before getting a mechanic to start nodding his head and tutting expensively.

It isn't ideal to be using a metal horse with a chainsaw in health and safety terms since bits of metal are going to go wizzing off if the two clash. Obviously most horses that are sold are metal anyway...
The main problem with these type of horses (and really most of any type) is that smaller diameter wood (which is going to be what most weekend warriors use these for) has a tendency of flying out of the horse during cuts unless you're super careful, which is a pain in the ****.
That chainsaw is chinese rubbish. Better off buying a £50 one straight from China on ebay. Same saw anyway...

The exact same horse in B & Q says it's suitable for chainsaws. As with all equipment there has to be some common sense as well as health and safety. If Einhall who manufacture for Aldi, or Aldi for that matter, were conscientious of the health and safety aspect of NOT using a metal horse with a chainsaw, then they should have taken the liberty of applying a larger notice on the packaging. It's a tiny red label on the BACK of the box. A bit of a joke really.

I assembled the horse and used it yesterday. For £8.99 (half price) it's actually not bad and I would suggest quite a bit safer than cutting logs on top of other logs on the ground. I had some branches about 4 metres long and about 3" diameter. It cut them well with no issues. The only problem are the thinner branches which don't grip too well in the jaws and spin round. A bit of pressure on the chainsaw stopped this but felt the jaws were not sharp enough. Despite other reviews on amazon I found the horse extremely sturdy, even on concrete and never felt it would tip up. I could easily chop the logs down to about a metre long and then chop off smaller bits for the chiminea or wood burner. I would say anything less than about 2" diameter should be cut on a chop saw.

I will probably make some modifications to the horse which will make it safer but will also invalidate the warranty. A quick release strap or clamp to secure the log to the horse would be an improvement or sharper teeth in the jaws. I may even clad the inner part of the legs with timber in order to ensure that metal contact of the chainsaw blade will never meet with the metal of the legs.

exactly right pateo, might get one and leave it by the door tonight :D
Just bought a log horse similar to this from Aldi. Half price at £8.99. On getting it home, unpacked it and on each leg it says "Do Not Use With Chainsaws". Now I don't believe there is anyone out there who would buy a log horse who WOULDN'T be wanting to use it with a chainsaw. Looks like the guy from Einhell who make the tools for Aldi must be fresh out a health and safety course.

20kg...seriously? I ask because we need a new one and this seemed a good price. I assume you sent them back?


Honestly Yh I couldn't send them back because the handles buckled so much they snapped eventually . I mean I am a builder so more than day to day wear and tear .. Go to wickes and get a Walsall wheelbarrow for £30 .. They are really good! And withstand a good bashing and weight !

Not a bad deal on a good brand of drill. Just bought the £99 quid one from screwfix (link in a post above). Fantastic drill for the money and a good battery. Been putting it through it's paces sorting out joists and fitting new flooring. Very, very happy with it!

Only thing to watch is that Bosch do a less stellar one that looks almost identical and has an almost identical name. The £99 Screwfix deal one is high quality though.
I've had plenty of Bosch blue professional tools that have been heavily used and they've stood up very well, my old 24v SDS drill is still going well after 9 years of site work and believe me it's had a very hard life
Totally agree on the 6ah bang for your buck but I have a feeling the batteries will out last the drill itself.

If I buy the Milwaukee i can abuse it for 2 years and buy another battery and get anther 2 years.

Comment above made me think if its not brushless should i just stick with the bosch throw the lot out whe its knackered and buy again in 2 years (that how long my drills usally last dewault and makita previously.

It obviously depends on the output of the USB ports that your socket has. As explained earlier in the thread this one has a 2.4A and 1.2A ports. Yours most likely just has the lower rating for both
steevieboy4u
Had our new kitchen fitted about 2 months ago and had a brushed chrome version very similar to this fitted and the kids and Mrs never use the USB charger sockets and continue to plug in there chargers because "they don't charge as fast" total waste of money from my point of view and it cost 5 times as much as the other standard brushed chrome sockets we had fitted. :(
No it's not, I made sure I got the max output version but it still doesn't work as well as the standard 3 pin.
I wouldn't buy again knowing what I know now.
See my posting above which explains this. People are naive to think that "2.4 amps" means that things they plug into there will draw that amount. It's not as simple as that.
​ I'm not naive, I understand current ratings. We've got 3 HP Touchpads (these draw 2 amps) in our house and using the supplied 2 amp adapter and their respective USB cable they charge almost 50% faster than plugging the cable directly into the USB socket.
You are still missing my point. It's much more complicated than how much current a port can supply; it's how much current a device thinks a port can supply, which is determined by various proprietary ways of wiring up the otherwise unused data pins.

Understand now?

Edit - just in case you still don't, by means of example, the HP Touchpad official supply will have its data pins wired up in a certain way (resistors; whatever) so that when the Touchpad is connected it says "ah, this is an official power supply capable of giving 2A, so I will draw 2A". When it's plugged into this device instead, it will see nothing special on the data pins, so it will not draw as much current, whether the supply is capable of delivering it or not.

"Smart" sockets get over this by trying simulations of known arrangements of data pins while measuring the current drawn. They then settle on whatever gives the maximum current.

Bought one, not sure I'm going to keep it though.........
Yes, it's drawing current - how much it's drawing is what is important. Try seeing if it's stone cold all over. If not it's definitely an inefficient power supply.
I just checked, it's stone cold and remains buzzing for a minute or two after isolating from power, so can't be drawing much juice in standby. Switching power supplies do change pitch depending on whether or not anything is drawing. I will just have to monitor to see if noise is issue in the bedroom overnight.

Bought one, not sure I'm going to keep it though. I makes a very low buzzing noise when not in use. Not very loud but right next to bed, also concerned that this may mean it's drawing current

Spotted at the local Toolstation in Bradford (WY). Not sure if it's national or not. Can anyone please confirm if it's national or not? Thanks!

The offer is only for newly opened stores as a promotion to get customers through the door

Untrue I work for them. All you need is the voucher which was posted to you with the catalogue that you get. There is no other way to get it. Valid till 29th June.

This can damage your cat. converter as carb. engines did not have them.
how can you damage something that's not there do not understand comment unless cat retro fitted

Now cars don't have carbs, I would imagine you'll use this in a car that has a cat fitted. This being the case, it will harm the cat converter.

Meant "degreasing", though it will probably decrease your lung capacity as well if you breathe in too much.
Great stuff. Good for general decreasing.

Scroll down the page and you find this 62595 Green Garden Hose 1/2" x 30m Each£10.78. It's twice the length and slightly cheaper.

That's a beginner hose.

I think that the starter hose will last longer.

A starter hose? I assume once you've got a handle of how it works, they also sell intermediate and professional hoses to progress onto?
Go on give us clue where it is without me clicking on the deal........



Never mind. It's tool station everyone
