ebuild is sad to announce its closure - it has become too time and resource intensive to develop, manage and maintain.

However, ebuild will remain on-line in archive mode (ie no posting facilties) for several weeks so that users can use it as an information resource.

Nope. Too expensive. She spends about £120 per year, tops.

i will also agree they are also fantastic for setting to a depth, although for some reason the makita version doesnt take into account the rail so you have to add 3mm, swings and roundabouts i suppose,

This is another reason I'm behaving like a fanboy. The Bosch depth guage twists to allow for the rail. Have a look at about 1:45mins in on this video. Seriously clever thinking!

Well, that for me would mean I could afford a screw-driver. Easy care is our Deb.

I've got one of those. Good, aren't they? My wife's mother is forever at her to start dyeing her hair (wife went grey quite early), but the missus doesn't see the point. She also won't spend any money on clothes, shoes or handbags, even with encouragement (not that I encourage her too much!)

Oh, and she loves watching football and golf. I'm not into either, and many of my football-loving friends think she's wasted on me for that fact alone.

I'm liking that idea. The number of times you've got a long level on a wall/board and just as you're about to run the pencil the *!*!*!*!* thing slips!

6m of the Bosch tape here for not too much money:

Edit: would make a good video how to tip!

LMAO! And yes it is three o'clock in the morning and I have only just got back from a party where far too much drinking took place :) I nearly just spat my cup of tea out! I guess that Bosch stuff must sit in a recess and no I hadn't noticed. Oops. But I'll happily buy it off you at your cost as I'll use it one day. Drop me a PM :D

Well the offers there as I will genuinely use it.

P.S. I could also trade it for the mother of all hangovers if that's of interest? :-/
