But these days they stay closed during afternoons and close early at 1730-1800hrs due to Ramzan.
Thanks. Will check them out this weekend if possible.

OK, but please make sure that they can withstand the torque of the power drill.

Shouldn't be a problem since i will using the drill in screw driver mode and not in impact mode. And i will be running at low speeds only since i need more rotating power(which i am not able to apply by hand) and not fast rotation.

I had brought one from SP road too, but dont remember the name. Its of good quality and IIRC I paid 50 bucks or so. It is around three inches long and though I can directly plug the bits in the chuck, this allows for quick switching of bits.

And yes, it is used in slow speeds else the torque at high speeds is good enough to rip the thread smooth.

Did you get it from the main SP road lane which has lots of computer shops or some side lane over there?

Try the shops closer to the mosque side of SP Lane after the electronics shops end. At the Avenue road end you have the metal traders. The tools and tackle guys are on SP Lane (and the side gallies) between the metal traders and the electronics shops.

Same line of shops if you go, you will slowly find electronics shops after the IT shops. Following that you get only tool and hardware shops and I got it from one of the shops to the right side of the road.

If you don't see a need for using bits with shanks larger than 10mm, this is a very good deal.

I just bought a Stanley ratchet screwdriver, here in London.

All the ratchet drivers I have are small and lightweight, but this is quite hefty. Hope it is as strong as it looks.

Also has 4:1 gearing option to speed up the easy bit.
Cost 17 GBP!

Cant predict this. So better will stay away from this and get the Bosch kit.

Even I think that you should go in for a 13mm capacity drill. Apart from allowing larger shanks, it will have more power and in some cases built for longer drilling time.

Hi Guys,

Showing off my small tool collection. This was taken a while back, since then I have added few more tools to my arsenal.

Besides this I have a Circular saw underneath a table. Due to the build quality you can really call it a tablesaw.

Besides this I do have couple of soldering Irons, crimping tools, UV Exposure box, PCB drill press etc.

I really wanted to get some router templates similar to once being sold by Mobile solutions. Any alternate and/or cheaper options to source these in India?

Cheers,
Venki

Advice on soldering iron, please?

I want one suitable for a beginner to electronics.

The one I have is too big and, I suspect, too powerful. Something with a fine tip around 20W would be good?

I am on UK just now, and will be buying a handful of small tools. Or a case-full, if I get carried away!

I have a Goot 30W soldering iron with a fine tip which I've been using since 9 years. Its just excellent, does its job well and hasn't given me any problems so far
