Pull cord generator for under $400
Generators are great for electricity on the site when none is available on site. We tested one in the store this morning. Pulled the cord once, and, yes it started first time! It says it was running @ 2400w so we plugged in a fan heater to see, and we were outside running a heater. You could hear the extra load on the engine noise as we increased the heat setting. We were all surprised how quiet it ran considering that it only sells for $399.00.

Drilling into metal can be time consuming and costly if you use the wrong drill bit. Most drill bit manufacturers will give you a choice of two types of metal drill bits, either a common mild steel bit which can also be used on plastics and timber or a cobalt bit, which is used on metals such as stainless steel, cast iron and high tensile steel. The best way to begin drilling through metal is to begin with a drill bit which will be 25% of the size you are ultimately wanting to achieve ie:2.5mm drill bit for a 10mm final hole. To help eliminate the tip of your drill bit from burning out, it is always a good idea to use a cutting oil. Lastly, always use a sharp drill bit.
Many tiles are hard to drill, by using a core drill that is a drill that cuts the outside of the hole that is tipped with diamond will make it easier. These must be used with water so require a water well which will provide water to the cutting tip or a person standing beside you using a spray bottle to apply water to the drilling area. Hole sizes are available in 6, 8, 10mm sizes
