Drill is hammered

When my father visited us last October, he bought me an SDS-Plus hammer drill to speed up the task of raking out mortar joints and removing tile cement from the floor.

The drill proved useful, being much faster if rather more noisy than using a lump hammer, cold chisels and bolster chisels.

However, it failed today. Yes, after just three months.

I was raking out mortar when the clutch shrieked, the drill juddered hard and the chisel bit stopped work even though the motor was racing. Useless piece of junk.

Unfortunately, I didn’t get the receipt off my father and he’s long since gone back to Australia. I now have to persuade B&Q to give me a replacement drill without a receipt.

Wish me luck.
