Electical tools and their life span
#1
I was wondering how you rate the usefulness of electrical tools and their longevity ? Having had many over the years from lawn mowers to tile cutters etc. I think the one that has served me best over the years is a hammer drill which has been in service  34 years never let me down and has never been serviced or repaired. Good old black & decker  Smile [ I have probably cursed it to fail now ]  Big Grin  I can't complain if it does.

Yes Zen, I too have a Black & Decker drill which must be about 30 years old.  It has been used over the years to make hundreds of hen houses and is still going strong.  I wonder if the tools made today will last that long.  

My favourite tool though, is a hand drill that was my fathers - that must be about 70 years old.  I keep it clean and well oiled but can only use it for short bursts at a time

I don't think this really counts but....................................my 'electric' trouser press has been with me since 1984 - 33 years and is still like new. We seem to be break tools all the time, especially lawn strimmers - I have at least 1 every year !!
I never make the same mistake twice. I do it at least five or six times, just to make sure !

I have an old hand drill too, very handy where there is no electric. I do have a rechargeable one that I use now and again.

Strimmer's I always bought the cheapest ones and upgraded their cutting line. Most lasted a few years if used in dry conditions. My last new one went to my son as I have nothing to use a strimmer on now.
