Ooh, very professional.

Been threatening to get me a Dremel. Spent too many years managing without tools that I was finally forced to buy.
Mattock, Impact driver, angle-grinder, trolley-jack, tin-snips, voltmeter etc, and so ultimately struggled for nothing.

re golf my nephew just sent me a video with the message "first time golfing, hit 280 yards after some practice" and looking at his swing, I can believe it - so tikay, the secret might be to be 21 again  Grin

dremel's are only good for very small stuff, an angle grinder would be much better for some of the bigger cut outs I have to do for the water pipes.

They're cheap as chips, (Well fish and chips twice) at toolstation.

They are cheap but have limitations you can also get a lifetimes supply (at our age) of cutting discs for £8

https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B09SPW96ML/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o06_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Things were going so well on the tiling front, but the cutter I bought is duff, 50/50 to shatter the tile rather that break it across the desired line. I bought based on reviews which are obviously fake.

Fake reviews are a sad reflection on today's retail world, but on the plus side things are so easy to return when you've finished with them.

So bought a £50 quid tile cutter at B&Q (rather than the amazon £25 job), much better quality and first two cuts v easy. It seems somehow to tickle the tile into submission, you can hardly hear it cracking.

Don't blame you. Shame to spoil a nice job for £50.

Return the Amazon one. They are very good on accepting returns.
