Tools wanted (Roofers)

    Recommended Posts

    Hi

     

    Sorry if this is in the wrong place (could the mods think about putting a wish list section on here please - practical things only not like 6 foot 2 blondes). Hope not opening a can of worms.

     

    Our container is due to arrive in a month. Have done without my favourite tools that I did not ship ahead. Mother arrived on Saturday and has just informed me that 5 days after we left the country our garage got broken into and some of my tools nicked. Know who it was but police came out and because it was wet were unable to get fingerprints. Stole my stihl saw (disc cutter) and my dewalt mitre saw:arghh::mad::realmad: Luckily did not touch anything else in the garage.

     

    Does anybody know of anyone selling a stihl saw and a trim saw please?

     

    Thanks

     

    Jason & Niki

    Hi

    Just to give an update like I said I would and to thank people that were keeping an eye out for me for the tools I wanted.

    Decided that I can do without a mitre saw for the time being. Had a look here and nearly fell over the price of stihl saws second hand. They also did not look like they would last much longer. The Mrs got in contact with some old tool contacts that she knew through her Dad in UK and managed to get a brand new one in box, diamond blade and to have it shipped direct to our door for less than £600. It arrived in just under two weeks. Feel like all my christmases have come at once as I now have anew toy:).

    Hi Jason

    I am a roof Slater/tiler to trade never done it over here. I take you are going to use the stihl for cutting tiles. I have never seen anyone here using them they all seem to use tile cutters like nibblers. You better watch what your doing you might drag them into the 21st century next thing you know they might be using plastic hip and ridge systems.
