U got see the metal Nun-Chuck or not? So cheap!

don't recall seeing them.

but last year I've bought about 10 mops from them. those twisty type for slight less than RM10/piece. market price RM25 cheapest
yes, i'm a clean freak, change new mop every 2-3 months.

the down side about them is that when a particular item is sold out, it might never be restocked ever again. like the RM10 mop

wah u got table top saw? what u cut?

i only got bosch mitre saw, also good 3-4years still rock solid.. cut aluminium extrusion parts
earlier was comparing the li-ion hand tools makita vs bosch.. cos i got 5-6 of them biggrin.gif
*
oops, correction, i'm using mitre saw saw too

mostly PVC pipes, the blade is helluva expensive, about rm400 for a re-cut piece
can't use conventional wood saw blade on pvc pipes. it'll shatter the pipe

Guys, those gap sealant from Mr DIY, there are quite a variety. Which is better? I need to seal gap between my sink and the wall.

if color is not a matter to you, i'd go for the white sealant. so far no problem. the place that you want to seal has to be dry before applying the sealant.

Hi Members,

I'm looking for some cheap stainless steel stop cock,need 12 of them...due to budget, I can't b bothered with buying branded stop cocks as it easily costs more than RM50 each, furthermore, stop cock is rarely turned...does Mr. D.I.Y. sells any stop cock that costs lesses than RM30?
If not, does Members here know where I can get cheap unbranded stop cock?
thanks...

must it be stainless steel?

there's pretty good looking ball valve, not sure if it serves the same purpose that you are looking for. about Rm6/pc

anybody use mr. diy rechargeable battery?? im thinking to use it for shaver..
*
Ive bought mr diy non rechargeable AA battery for my daughter lantern last year. within seconds the battery grew so hot, i can't even hold the handle. (battery is placed inside handle of lantern). Good thing i was quick enough to uncap the batteries. it was leaking badly.
lucky i tested the lantern first before passing it my my daughter.

other batteries like CR3032 don't last

but LR44 button batteries seems to be ok though. using it on digital calipers
