    There is Amazon here via the web or have i missed something ?

     

    Blackwoods are pretty good and so are Gasweld at No.1 Whitmore square in the city.

     

    Don't forget to keep all your tool receipts either :wink:

    Hi, not sure if anyone can help. We are moving out in 6 weeks and my husband is an electrician. Can anyone advise what tools he should bring/leave etc. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Mu husband Paul is a carpenter and he has used Total Tools, but you need to haggle and shop around I wouldn't just stick with one store.

    What no Rutlands in OZ either,, thats it I'm not coming now. Seriously though, is wise to buy Uk and ship, quality tools?

     

    Yes i had trouble with that one too, need REAL BEER, not lager !

     

    A lot better now on the beer front but be warned, this is the beer that usually gets spotted at BBQ's and is first to go.

    Tip # 1.

    Keep a secret stash :wink:

     

    I shipped over everything and i mean everything, advantage for me was dad worked at BA so i didn't pay any excess freight ect.

    Reality, bring everything useful and maybe sentimental. If you have not used it for ages then you probably won't need it.

    One the plus side get the tools valued (for freight and insurance purposes).

     

    Tip # 2.

    When you do your first tax return you can claim the depreciation back.

     

     

    Do you have a job to go to yet ?

    What sort of electrical work do you do, let me know and i'll advise/help where i can:smile:

    Yep that's correct, seen 110v only in some very old factories.

    Hey Barney, not sure if you meant to quote me or the original poster, Ive been in the trade 25 years man and boy, there is a smallish to medium sized firm just north of CBD who have verbally offered me a tryout in Jan when I get there. I got interviewed by Red Appointments here in the uk regarding a job with Nilson "Busbar Specialist" but never heard from them again "nice". I have been running my own NICEIC approved firm here for 4 years, but have called it a day in prep for coming over there. before that I have been in the general building trade and done most general stuff, refurbed a few houses and re sold. Ill work in Woolworths if I have to when i get there.. just finishing my last job this week, then sorting and packing tools ect. I have my OSTSR, But I know thats not a ticket to ride over there. wife is going to UNISA, studying Midwifery in Feb. How long you been there Pal?
