Is the above item worth £20 + £7 for a spare bit? It's intended use
is chasing in a new ring main and 2 x lighting switches in my (if it
ever happens) kitchen.
By way of explanation behind such rash expenditure the walls are made of
a peculiar white brick which shatters as soon as you look at it.
Previously I have used an angle grinder (fantastically messy) and
bolster (very boring) to cut the chases and wondered if Screwfix's magic
toy was worth the cash.
Don't know about the wallchaser, but if the white bricks you mention are
the same as the ones we have(1), then SDS drill + sharp chisel bit was
(1) Quite fine textured, chip or shatter quite easily. Local builder
refers to them as "Sevenoaks Whites", but I can find no mention of that
name anywhere, so I reckon he made it up :)
I tried the SDS+ on rotary stop with a chisel but found that the flat of the
chisel tended to follow its own route through the brick. I think that rotary
lock on my SDS+ is better described as 'rotary unlock'.
As for the name of the bricks, the description fits and I live in Sevenoaks!
