    Painting advice needed urgently please.

    I'm painting a living room. The landlord has used Zinsser BIN on the wall between the ceiling and the wall and down the side where the corners are. I've opened the tin that they've used and it's quite yellow so I'm assuming it is off. Even when it's been mixed it is quite yellow. I've tried...

    Thanks eta, I will look at your suggestions. Yes, still looking at all the reviews posted earlier so I can get an idea of what would suit me best. The Milwaulkee is a few months old now, I tend to clean them when I have used them. Thanks for the post, you've given me a lot to go on. I very much...

    I have the standard blade that came with the evolution and was under the impression it could not be changed other than for another evolution blade, I will have to look into the Freud blades. Thanks for the Toolstation tip. I have some Wera drill bits actually, they're very good. It is mainly...

    It is the Milwaukee M18v combi drill and driver, trying to post a pic but don't know how. I will have a look at those sites, many thanks

    I have an Evolution Sliding mitre saw but wouldn't use it on a job. I have family asking me, friends, nothing too big and I wouldn't take on anything I wasn't competent in doing but my old tools are past their best. I just didn't want to buy more cheap tools that are not going to last.

    Tools I need

    Yup! I asked about tools. I didn't say I was inept at DIY. I didn't say I was taking on jobs I couldn't do. I didn't say it was my main job, I asked about TOOLS Andy and you refer to me as a cowboy, and yet you know nothing about me. You are really boring me now. Now, who is trolling?

    Andy, do you need a hug? Are you a worksite bully? So I asked what professional drill it the latest and best to buy and you've assumed I am a cowboy. Ok Andy, ok.

    Tools I need

    I agree. I have a Milwaukee Drill and Driver and also a Makita SDS. I just find the Makita larger for the smaller jobs, and heavy. Just recovering from cancer so need to build up my core strength. I am trying to get back into the swing of things, albeit slowly. The Makita was a gift but it is...

    Tools I need

    I am perfectly calm, but thanks for the concern. I find comments like yours unnecessary. You were the one telling me I needed to buy a DIY 'how to do it' book. A completely different theme to what I was enquiring about. I was asking about Pro tools. You were the one who wrongly assumed I was a...

    Thing is with that kit I have a good drill and impact driver so the other tools would be too expensive for £999. I could always sell them as bare though. It is food for thought. Thanks eta.

    Ahh, so the fact I have come on looking for "tool" advice makes you think I don't know how to DIY? OK...

    Thanks so much. I will have a look. I never know if the multi-kits are good value or not. Thanks for the help, Graham

    Tools I need

    I will have a look at all of these models, thank you. Hard to know whether or not to stick with one brand or not. I have a Milwaulkee cordless drill and impact driver but going down their line for all of the above will be too expensive and probably overkill for what I do. Thank you, I appreciate...

    Thanks. I bought a new set of Irwin Marples I use for finer woodworking, and I too have an old set I use for other jobs. Thank you for your help. I will have a shop around.

    That isn't what I asked Andy. I asked about 'decent' kit. I have tools but as they are not pro-tools they are wearing out and I am having problems with them so therefore I asked... "I have about £1500 to spend. I need Corded drill (I have an SDS but need something smaller) Circular Saw, corded...
