Some were large-clicky ratchets and some tiny-clicky if that makes sense. But for $75 for 20 spanners that's justifiable for a cheap tool. And with lifetime warranty who would complain? Just my observation.

    I noticed the same thing. I reckon they have a variation in the number of teeth on the ratchet (more teeth smaller ratchet sound). Like you said, not just from big to small but all over the shop. Compared to the little(more expensive) set I have they don't feel as solid, little bit loose in the mechanism and a larger ratchet tooth/sound. I was happy to take the set home anyway though. $75 with a lifetime warranty, can't really go wrong..

    Got some of these recently;

    Haven't used them in anger yet but I can see them being pretty handy. Every now and then a bit of flex would make life easier.. not to mention I now have a variety of extension sizes rather than just too long or too short..

    Far from a tool, a top bloke will soon be helping us out progress needed. Gear is only as good as the blokes driving it

    Ok, got impatient and couldn't sleep. Unpacked tonight. Oh my God, its huge. Weighs alot too, 30.5kg actually. Bit of work to set it up and I'm still not quite happy re bench position but that can wait. So the kit comes with saw, 2 batteries and a dual port charger, and a 60 tooth blade, which won't get super fine cuts but will do ok.

    Ducting and blade are all disconnected but once you find where the Allen key is hidden, it's fairly simple to setup.

    I plugged a couple of batteries and and just turned it over, starts smooth and as quiet as you could expect from a drop saw. When I'm not going to wake my family I will make some test cuts, with various densities of timber.

    Slide action is ultra smooth, miter action feels just as good. It feels odd that the bar stays put and the saw moves along it but its handy that i can have it hard against my shed wall and it doesn't fowl.

    You can see my old saw also for a size reference. The ozito saw is a 10" or 255mm sliding miter saw.

    Model is DLS211PT2

    Hi guys,

    Has anyone got some advice on stihl chainsaws? Im looking to buy a second hand one, as I can't afford to splash out and spend what the new ones cost. Any models to steer clear of?
