    Well Bath originally used something around injury cover, which I guess is outside of the cap, but not sure how they have then signed them up full time.

    Yes, I suspect there will be a batch of players who aren't going to be around for the next world cup who will go. The big question is are they replaced by young English qualified or imports from SA etc.

    Isn't the issue that all the English clubs are pretty much at the salary cap, so wont be able to take any players, not sure how Bath have managed it with Worcester players.
    I know that Chiefs have had to let Simmonds go, as we were nowhere near what Montpellier could offer, and looks like Nowell will be following him in the next season or 2.

    We went with one of the cheaper Samsungs , think we paid a bit less than that, but it has been pretty good, certainly no complaints coming from a condensor.

    What have you got at the bottom of the walls? I would be tempted to dig a small hole and try and get a look at the footings, it is what our structural engineer asked us to do when we were investigating underpinning.

    You are obviously going to want something that condenses, so that is either a standard condensor or heat pump, we recently switched from a condensor to a heatpump and it makes a massive difference to the amount of heat and humidity that is being pumped into the room, so I would go Heatpump.

    Yeah, If I had my time again, i'm not actually sure who I would go with, but I have a cupboard full of Makita stuff, sowould cost thousands to replace. My big issue now is that most of my batteries are getting old, and at £50 a pop that is going to be painful and not as fun as buying actual tools.

    One thing I do like about Milwaukee compared to Makita in particular is the range in battery sizes, Makita is still in the dark ages there.

    I don't think you will go wrong with any Red, Blue or Yellow...

    Only thing I would look at is what over tools you are likely to want in the future, I know that Milwaukee and excellent in the auto range of things (buzz guns, wrenches etc.) but I personally think both DeWalt and Makita do better saws, and they certainly have cheaper entry points for those things too.

    But that drill and impact will be excellent (as would the comparable Makita and deWalt ;-) )

    I think you have to have a smart meter if you ever want to sell energy back to the grid... I have solar panels and no smart meter, and a lack of smart meter was given as a reason why I can't export.
