    A question for the Screwfix guys here - could someone kindly give me the catalogue numbers of suitable tools (including an electric drill) for drilling out single & double electric sockets in walls?

    I noticed that the catalogue has bits the right size, but I'm not sure what type of drill I need to use them.

    Thanks in advance,

    Any SDS drill with Roto stop will do, the kit you will need is a box sinker.

  4. Or, if you don't want to spend £200 you could try:

    Masking tape

    Draw around the box, drill holes all the way along the lines and across the insides, corner to corner.

    Chisel out any brick / plaster etc left.

    Job done, SBS drills haven't been around that long you know!

    harry, what i really want to know, is what complete *king idiot decided to come up with the word dyslexia, for word blindness, when most of them can not even spell what most people would call basic words...think about it....

    I’m a diagnosed dyslexic and I can spell dyslexic so don’t take the rip. You’re still struggling with using capital letters at the begging of sentences so I don’t know what you banging about!

    "begging of sentances?"??

    Capitals at the beginning of sentances make it easier to read. Anyway I think trying to use correct grammar & spelling makes everything prettier. These methods have developed over time to perfect the best way of doing things, not just a bodge-job! Treat it like your work, craftsman!

    E-mail is written communication. Its evolution has not resulted in a change in the rules for grammar, spelling or punctuation. They are, and remain, the same as those that apply when writing a letter or an essay or a book or whatever.

    So many are used to sending text messages on their mobiles because they use them as a posing icon. They now find it difficult telling the difference between correct English and the tripe they are used to.

    Hell. I could spell better than that before I started in the infants.
