i listened to him this morning on his radio show,and he gave the explanation as to why when he was 1st put up for the job and his reasons for refusing it.basically he said that he couldnt do the show when the other 2 were still there as he would be a spare part in a well oiled machine,he also said that he is very good friends with all of them,
then when he was told that captin slow and the hamster were not renewing there contracts he then gave it serious thought,
so i for 1 believe what he said was truthful and sincere,it looks like he will be the general(like JC was)and he will then bring in others that will fit in with him.
as for the original 3 splendid numptys i understand there going to netflix.which means we can all watch it on line if you know how .
sounds like it has detached from the clamps,this means having to take the door card off and refixing them.
worst case is that she caused the wires in the regulator to over spool on the motor?if thats the case then you will have to remove all of it and inspect the innards,you can now obtain fixing fits on ebay.
pains me to recommend this but take a look at the ryobi range of tools very versatile and on the cheap end of trade,
as im a chippy by trade so have a lot of bosch blue which are like most trade products expensive but you do get what you pay for quality and longevity,
dewalt now are no way as good as they used to be a few years ago,as advice above about the lithium range of batteries compared to the others you have had,the lions do not have a memory in them so you can put them on charge anytime you require a top up without damaging the batteries.
if you fancy a punt with your price range take a look on ebay and perhaps by a trade drill for that money,you will notice the difference.
