    This is a little internal repair job that's part of a larger job. It had been repaired a couple of years back using lumps of chipboard, Gripfill and 2 pack :rolleyes:

    Surprisingly, the rot is far more substantial on the inside rather than the outside with this house :scratchhead:

    Nice tidy job there, Mr H :thumbsup:

    Could I ask: what make and model is the die grinder and where do you get your cutters from?

    It's a GD0600, one of the chaps here posted a thread about it a while back. I think it was only about £70. The cutters are Trend from eBay.

    I've used the RC (metabo) die grinder and have the Makita. Save your money and buy the Makita, its all you'll need.

    I didn't know there was a cordless... I can't really see any benefit of having cordless?

    think i will go for the cordless makita as i think with two battery's it should last all day if i am grinding out all day ,just have to find one at a decent price
