Fix 8 Recognise That Whilst A Bad Workman Always Blames His Tools, Having The Right Power Tools To Hand Will Help Get Things Off To A Much Better Start

Maybe you are a home user getting ready to tackle a Do It Yourself (DIY) task or maybe you are a professional taking on a new job, but in either case you probably recognise the importance of having the right tools for the job. Fix 8 also recognise that whilst a bad workman always blames his tools, having the right power tools to hand will help get things off to a much better start.

Indeed Fix 8 pride themselves on their ability to supply both the amateur DIY person and the professional tradesman with high quality power tools at prices to suit all budgets. As an example you may just need a lightweight cordless screwdriver for very occasional use around the house, in which case Fix 8 would recommend a small 3.6v model. However, they also supply a wide range of heavy duty cordless screwdrivers and drills in a wide range of voltages from 10.8V to 36V, including the common sizes of 7.2,9.6 and 14.4V, as well as truly industrious high power 24 and 36V models. Fix 8 advise that the latter are ideal for professionals and are ideal for continual heavy use including drilling in to concrete.

When it comes to working with wood then they supply a complete range of electric planers, routers and sanders to cover all of your woodworking needs. Indeed they specialize in the Makita range of sanders, which have been chosen by Fix 8 for their ease of use, durability and value for money. They offer a full range of Makita sanders from high-powered angle sanders, orbital sanders, belt sanders, filing sanders, palm sanders through to multi-purpose sanders.

Fix 8 also have a wide range of power tools designed for working with harder materials such as concrete, ranging from heavy duty hammer drills capable of using extra long drill bits through to stone cutters.

All of Fix 8’s power tool range can be found on their website, where pictures, and full descriptions of all of their power tools can be easily accessed and ordered online. Best of all if you spend more than £50, next day delivery is free, and as Fix 8 recognises that your time is money, you can even have your new power tools delivered directly to the site you are working on, saving you time by letting you get on with work and not having to wait at home for a delivery.

On their new website Fix 8 also offer a wide range of accessories for all of their power tools, from spares batteries to dust extraction units and Bosch jigsaw blades, making them a one stop shop when it comes to power tools.

Once you have checked out their latest range of power tools online you may want to order some of the extensive range of fixings and fasteners that they sell, in order to complete your job, all of which are also available with next day delivery. Fix 8 also offer a comprehensive range of support online as well as having highly knowledgeable staff that can handle all of your telephone enquiries.

Ace Sheds Promotes The Wooden Summer House

Ace Sheds have a fantastic range of timber products which range from sheds to timber workrooms and wooden summerhouses and at first it seems strange that this is the time of the year to promote the summer house but there is more than a little logic to the argument. The summerhouse is often put to bed in winter the family does not get the time to use it because they are working and going to school and when they return the nights are cold and dark but in many cases the opposite is true.

The retired family or the wife or husband with time on their hands when the children are at school can find the summerhouse a superb place to spend some time in the autumn, winter and spring. The wooden summer house is in essence an extra communal space fitted into the glorious surroundings of a garden, the best views and the quietest room and an escape from the hustle and bustle of the house. Once a timber summerhouse is used through the winter it will be surprising how quickly the working members of the family migrate to it at the weekend.

Ace can supply wooden summer houses from a large range and at a large number of different dimensions to fit almost every requirement of the user. Over the years the vast experience Ace Sheds have gained has been put to use in finding a building that will satisfy virtually every desire. The summer houses can be fitted out to meet the user’s requirement’s, the introduction of power will enable lights and power points to be fitted. This enables the kettle to be boiled and the television or radio to be used with the proper furniture the summerhouse becomes great retreat. It also allows a heater to be installed.

The autumn is a great time to put in a summerhouse as the weather is quite good and there is less to do in the garden so time restrictions are less, the grass does not need much attention and the flowers are going to sleep. ACE Sheds have some excellent designs available from corner units that can fit into a small garden to large airy timber workshops that can act as a decent workplace in the garden. ACE Sheds are particularly proud of the Bournemouth and Middlesex ranges as they supply an excellent summerhouse at a very reasonable cost.

The Bournemouth summerhouse for example is a lovely room with the whole of the front of the building fitted with small square windows from floor to ceiling including the double door entrance. The windows also go round each side to give a 270 degree view of the garden, house or the surrounding area.

The Middlesex range is ACE Sheds best-selling range and it is easy to see why that is the case. This is a great pitched roof design with lovely Georgian windows providing a good airy aspect and which will be a great addition to any garden. The design is excellent and value for money cannot be beaten. ACE Sheds are just a click or a call away and will answer any question available and a Christmas drink in the winter’s sun can become a reality.

HSS Hire, the award-winning tool and equipment hire company, has an extensive range of items to help with a wide range of indoor and outdoor tasks. From carpet cleaners to lawnmowers, ladders to drills, HSS Hire is on hand to help.

Starting outdoors – why not revitalise your patio or deep-clean your driveway with a mini power washer? Around the rest of your garden the use of lawn scarifiers, lawnmowers and lawn aerator can breathe new life into an ailing lawn.

HSS Hire also has the equipment to help the indoors stage of the ‘spring clean’ too, such as carpet cleaners and steam cleaners, so there’s really no excuse to not have a shiny home this Spring.

Survey Reveals Facilities Managers Wasting Up To A Day A Week On Equipment Management

A survey and whitepaper sponsored by HSS, the national supplier of tool and equipment hire, in association with the Facilities Management Association (FMA), has discovered that almost one third of Facilities Managers are spending almost a day a week on the management of their equipment. Launched today, the whitepaper based on the survey results, written by leading FM consultant and journalist, Martin Pickard, known to many as “The FM Guru” can be viewed online at www.hss.com/outsource.

The survey, conducted amongst a sample of 330 Facilities Management (FM) professionals, working both in-house and for outsource specialists, found that:

* almost 30% of managers spent between 10% – 20% of their time on equipment matters.
* 81% report that margins fell in 2010
* 48% anticipate that the Public Sector Spending Review will have a negative impact on their business
* 40% report that equipment problems are responsible for service related issues in more than one out of five cases
* the economic environment is impacting on capital decisions with more than half of the survey respondents admitting to keeping kit beyond its useful life, with a quarter admitting losing productivity as a result of the age of their kit.

Other issues raised from this “groundbreaking” survey include 31.6% of respondents being worried about prosecution for non-compliance with health and safety legislation and a quarter reported that they could not prove their compliance with regulations. In terms of training, 90% reported their operatives had been trained to use the equipment but only 70% thought they could prove it through paperwork.

“The majority of FMs do see benefits in outsourcing with less than a quarter buying all of their own equipment,” writes Martin Pickard. “Despite this, equipment is still consuming a lot of management resource and equipment related issues are far too common. Equipment is being kept beyond its useful life as a result of the recession by those who have retained ownership while those that have outsourced have less exposure to the problems that creates.”

It is apparent from the whitepaper that for equipment outsourcers to be successful they have to demonstrate the ability to add value through specialist knowledge and technical innovation. Martin Pickard adds that solution driven commercial products are increasingly required by equipment users and that the most prudent facilities managers are those engaging successfully with leading equipment providers to develop new strategies in support of corporate objectives.

HSS works with many facilities management companies to deliver bespoke managed equipment plans through its “Outsource” service. HSS Outsource allows FMs to benefit from a move from fixed to variable costs, the minimisation of capital investment, equipment innovation and guaranteed compliance.

“The solution provides all the benefits of ownership with none of the responsibility,” says Chris Davies, HSS CEO. “It also provides a 24 hour helpdesk, advanced planned preventative maintenance regime, and the most rigorous reactive service delivered via our national network and maintenance staff. Most importantly however, Outsource provides an opportunity for facilities managers to only pay for what is in use, managing their costs efficiently in line with customer needs in challenging times.”

Martin Pickard concludes: “Emerging from a recession is a critical time for companies and it is at this time more than ever that management need to concentrate on their core business and proposition. Fixed costs and capital investment are unpopular with businesses under pressure. What could be more convenient than guaranteed availability of whatever kit you need, wherever you are and replaced with new or fully maintained equipment when you need it?”

The FM Whitepaper contains a wealth of information gained from the survey divided into five sections: Industry Outlook, Management of Equipment, Equipment Innovation and Replacement, Compliance and Training.

Amongst Uncertain Weather, Stay Covered With The Help Of Brookes

January maybe nearly over but the unpredictable weather and cold conditions look here to stay, at least for the short term. Working amongst unpredictable weather isn’t always easy, though thanks to online workwear retailer ebrookes.co.uk, the task is made a bit more manageable.

Ebrookes.co.uk, one of the uk’s leading quality discounted workwear suppliers, have a fantastic range of outdoor jackets and fleeces to suit any workforce. They can even be customised to feature your company’s logo too.

“Our selection of outdoor jackets are wide-ranging and suitable for anybody who works outside for any period of time,” said Ian Brookes, founder of ebrookes.co.uk

“We have worked hard to offer a collection from famous brands including Dickies, Craghoppers and Carhartt and they are proving popular.”

Available for both men and women and in a variety of colours, outdoor jackets at Brookes, like the rest of the Brookes catalogue which includes Carhartt trousers and Regatta walking boots, are also sold at wholesale prices.

“A jacket can be an important part of any workwear, especially when working outside, so it is important to get it right.”
“Our range of bodywarmers are bestsellers, as they are lightweight, fashionable and of course customisable, like the rest of our workwear range,” added Brookes.

Many brands and retailers adopt slogans, but eBrookes.co.uk’s “Making close personal” really is appropriate for this discounted retailer. Founder Ian Brookes has developed an embroidery service which has also proved popular with his loyal customers.
