Have a look at AEG Lithium ion drills, I use the 12 volt drills and nut drivers on a daily basis, they are superb, battery life and recharging times.

Thank you all for the replies, I looked under Erikson and I think they are TG100's.

I won 10 x DK20 collets on an auction site and received these, can anyone identify them please, I would like to let the seller know what he has sent.

They are 60.5mm long and the major external daimeter is 35.00mm, a 1p coin is included to give some idea of the size.p1000141.jpg

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you

Thread: Air con pipes
25/05/2012 15:31:25

These pipes are made of thin wall aluminum, not the best stuff to weld, also the system works at very high pressure 250 PSi is often seen in hot weather and the car is in traffic.

I have had some expensive pipes repaired by a local hydraulic company replacing the flexible part of these pipes but not the solid aluminum ones.

If you do manage to repair the pipe the system will have to be evacuated and regassed, adding any oil that might have been lost when the pipe failed.

If the pipe has been damaged for some time, it will be necessary to replace the reciever/dryer in the system.
