    Any time I have to go back to the shop that last touched nuts or bolts on wheels or blade plates I have a go at them about it.

    There is no need to have them done up so tight that they cannot be undone by hand.

    Simple, easy as - they use a rattle gun. with a gun they are easy to come off too - they forget about other who dont have them!

    I always use a torque wrench to tighten up my blades and set it to 90 ft lbs. Never had any problems. But you're right, give a moron a rattle gun and it creates problems for other people.

    Buying a new hammer drill for about $400 a few months ago and after about 20 minutes of use previously I go to use it today and it keeps stopping as if something is loose inside. I have 9 20mm holes to drill today to get some pipes in before waterproofing is done tomorrow morning, so I quickly took the cover off to see if there is anything standing out like a loose wire, and some bits of metal from inside fall out. I take it to get fixed/swapped and was told I voided the warranty because I took the cover off. I can't see how unscrewing 4 screws and removing a plastic cover voids a warranty. I had a feeling they would say that though. Pissed off.

    Have you tried Vistaprint? I've found it quite difficult to pay for much of anything except postage from them.

    They are sneaky.
    A few weeks ago I went through the whole "500 business cards for $x " and then got all the way through to find that postage or whatever was near $45 and would take 6 weeks!
    I'll have another look.

    Bosch drill. I bought it from Bunnings and took it to a place that does their warranty stuff. It was the place that fixes it that said I voided the warranty. I will wait to see what they charge to fix it before I name them. I shouldn't have to pay anything though. I'm very disappointed with it. I have another Bosch drill that I bought about 12 years ago that has really good but I needed a bigger one, so thought I would go with Bosch again.
    He said Bosch is all made in China now...

    I hate BEGGARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! when they are 2 x 16-20 y/o and asking for me to buy em a pack of ciggies - pretty please - oh so polite until I say sorry mate and then it starts!!! It wasnt until he says it may be hard to work if that tyre on the ride on goes flat all of a sudden I reached in my cabin and the head from the pick happened to fall off the handle - opened the door and leaning on the handle i said - when u r ready mate. His little girly tramp friend said comon lets go.
    I could go on and on but will leave it there I think
