Erbaur battery tools from screwfix.
Universal batteries and decent tools.
The drill i have has kango, percussion hammer and twist (wth a chuck adapter). As good as hilti for a fraction of the cost. Kango will cut out bricks and concrete with ease.

I was Transfixed by one of those shopping channels on sky the fella demonstrated a product to clean your window inside and out at the same time. Called something like the window Licker i purchased it and on 1st use from the 2nd floor window the outside bit washed 2 inches of window then detached fell to the ground and broke. The bit on the inside proved to be a very good and gave years of service. I have know changed to a Karcher window cleaner which is ok but not as good as advertised

Hifi that I'm happy to recommend:

Naim.

I bought a Uniti Atom a couple of years ago, with the intention of using it in conjunction with my Primare main amp.

I tried it out on its own directly into my speakers and WOW, the Primare is now redundant. The Atom does for sound what a mega-pixel camera does for images.

Expensive, but sensational.

I'm years out of date with the hifi world but aren't you using it to play compressed music?

I don't listen to much music nowadays but my first stereo system was a Garrard SP25 turntable, Rogers cadet valve amp and Wharfedale Super Linton speakers if anyone else goes back that far

My most recent toy that I love to bits is a Panasonic bread maker. There are cheaper models than Panasonic but not all of them have timers or yeast dispensers which together make life so much easier.

For those that have never tried bread from a bread maker it tastes like the bread that you get in quality restaurants rather than the supermarket bread that is stuffed full of chemicals.

The downside is that you end up eating much more bread as it tastes so good

I make my mine the old fashion way surprisingly easy. The problem is that it is so nice it doesn't last.

I certainly remember the Garrard deck and Wharfedale speakers, but any recollection of Rogers amps escapes me.

I had the same Gerrard/Wharfdale set up - Pioneer were also getting popular .
I had a friend who bought a Bang & Olufsen system in 1981 for about 1000 which impressed everyone by having a remote control.

Good review - nice looking amp. Just had a squint on eBay out of curiosity. Going rate around 400, sound (sorry) investment.

I'm not sure that they would sound too good up against modern equipment but mine was an upgrade from an old radiogram so the leap in sound quality was tremendous.

I gradually upgraded over the years but my next huge leap in sound quality was in 1991 when I added a REL Q Bass to my (now) AV system
