If the finish is important then I suggest you try using a slightly smaller bit in your rotary hammer drill and drill the required length of...

Bunnings normally drops the price of an equivalent product to compete with Aldi. They discount an "equivalent" because they carry different...

According to Bunnings website the PXBRHS-200 has 3 operating modes: drill, hammer drill and chisel...

I won't bother countering your counter as it really is a matter of what suits you best. Some people will be happy having a different brand...

Probably also need to consider the "bigger picture". Bunnings has a large range of Ozito 18V tools (dozens), available ~363 days/year. The...

If you've got a rotary hammer drill you'll probably never use your normal hammer drill for drilling concrete or bricks again - unless...

Yeah, I'd jump on it but already have the brushed Ozito rotary hammer drill that I picked up for $50 in a previous Aldi price match by...

I have the brushed one but got it for $50 when Bunnings price matched an Aldi sale a year or 2 ago. It appears to only have a fraction of...

Non-rotary???? The post is about the rotary hammer drill, which is far superior for drilling bricks, concrete etc than a basic hammer...

That's handy cos you'd have to spend twice as much to get the same value in bonus points... Each to their own. I normally buy at Coles each...

IMO Woolies is a bit stingy with their reward point bonuses on Google Play cards (and most other gift card offers). It usually only equates...

Mine had been rejected and after complaining they offered $5 compensation. Mine has been tracked now (for the full amount - almost $30) as...

I've withdrawn almost $900 from Shopback from over 250 transactions and similar value/volume with Cashrewards - so I reckon I know the...

Mine starts 25-10-2020 and ends 10-05-2020. If I don't find anything worth using it on now then I'll keep it and see what's available on 25...

Agree, neg for merchant not the deal. Got caught with recent 25% cashback on BWS. Sale wasn't tracked - and when I queried Shopback said...

I paid $7.50 each for 2 of these at Woolies several weeks ago. Given that the $49 includes delivery then I'd say they're reasonably priced,...

Agree, but question was about methylated spirits NOT containing methanol e.g. Diggers, which according to MSDS is >= 95% ethanol and <= 5%...
09/04/2020 - 08:39
Could you mix with methylated spirits (95% ethanol and no methanol) with this to increase to ~70%. It would make it a little watery but it...
09/04/2020 - 08:22
Methanol is one of the "nasties" and it can poison you via absorption through skin. So using methylated spirits, which contains methanol to...
08/04/2020 - 19:07
5% non-ethanol is not significant unless you mix it based on total volume rather than ethanol content. It's also important to ensure it...
08/04/2020 - 10:25
Yes, need to allow for the methylated spirits not being 100% ethanol. The one I have is 95% ethanol. Mixing 70:30 would produce a product...

Looking at price history this appears to be normal price.. and they've been down to $1.92. So are they being listed because they're a...

I bought the 4 draw Sidchrome (read post below), in part because I have Sidchrome tools from a 100+ piece set I bought through an...
19/02/2020 - 18:36
Yeah I bought the "$149 one". It's much bigger (>60% larger by volume) and more useful for me - all draws are as deep as the deepest draw...

Note the dimensions on the Bunnings website appear to be incorrect. I found the following on the Sidchrome website for the same model:...

I didn't realise there was a limit. I regularly have 40-50k points on mine and my wife's card and have had over 80k on mine a few times....
