Just went to use my Black and Decker jigsaw that I bought in 1976 and it doesn’t work. 😡. It’s never let me down before.

Did that and gave the motor a turn over. Might be stuck brushes, gave it a small love tap. Off to Bunnings, $30 will replace it with an XU1.

Get a Ozito if you can, probably not much more $$$ but better quality. I've got an older Ozito, don't use it often, but when I do I push it hard. Had no trouble cutting 50mm solid Red Mahogany.

Plus the warranty is more than 2yrs. ;)

At least the driver can see over the steering wheel, without a booster seat.

Went to start the Patrol this afternoon, turned the key & "Click". Bloody battery is dead & the inbuilt indicator (Supercharge) is showing red. Guide on the battery says "See your dealer" if it's red. Not quite 3 years old, think I need to drive it more.

Sticker on the battery says clear needs recharging & red is dead. I put my 16A charger on it a few weeks ago & it hadn't fully charged after more than 24 hours. Did a trip up to Armidale & back, over 500km, two weeks ago, so should still be charged. Had it on the charger for 5 hours tonight & still showing red, so definitely think it's dead.

Maybe it is but that built in indicator isn’t as fancy as it seems.
Simply a Perspex prism with 3 coloured balls calibrated to different specific gravity of the acid in one cell only. The coresponding ball will float to the tip of the prism which you see from the top and gives a rough guesstimate of the batteries health.

When i first looked into my now job, got told that i had 3 month probation as casual then could go permant.
Now been told its 6 months probation, then i can put in request for permancy, dependent on where company at, covid etc. From other workers have siad they often drag it out for 28 months plus.
No way i can keep going on casual with family life, barely making it week to week, doing long hours and hsving to try mske up hours for public holidays etc.

So pretty much feel like im stuck looking into another job again.
