I was going for a canopy that covered the full side of the building, started without thinking placed the first beam in the wall and quickly worked out there would be no slope on the roof :lol:

patio base at the other side of the extension with beams in the wall for some decking. Just needs a cement screed and stone to finish it off. All the work was done in under a week. Spot the pallet board cut to the right height :P

That was bought on promo light years ago when we were on FE and Bentley was still posting.
You (spotty) claimed these old fat batteries would not last. They are still holding the charge.
I am sure it was only 99 euros best screw gun ever owned, came with three batteries.

I'm still using a bosch nicad drill/driver that I bought in 1985. Its only a 9v model but because of that it is very light and not tiring to use at a stretch in awkward positions. The battery packs don't last quite as long as they once did but it will last me until I expire.
