  • How to use a Jigsaw

    Buy your Jigsaw from us at Randburg Midas then learn how to use it like a pro! We have the perfect power tools to help you tackle and master any DIY project! In our opinion, the jigsaw ranks a close second to the cordless drill as must have do-it-yourself power tools. They are very versatile and work perfectly for around the house fixes and small woodworking projects. Even if you’ve never used a saw before the jigsaw is extremely intuitive and also safer to operate than most power saws. Children can also be taught how to use a jigsaw and can be one of the first power tools they learn to use. But as with any power tool they should be respected and handled with care as well and proper safety equipment should be used when operating them. Jigsaws are perfect for cutting pine boards and plywood both of which will be used extensively in many of the DIY projects we are going to post. You can also buy saw blades that will cut laminate, tile and metal. Before using your jigsaw make sure you have the correct blade and your workspace is clear of any obstructions. You’ll also want to consider using gloves and we highly recommend wearing safety goggles to protect your eyes from sawdust. When you start your cut make sure the shoe of the saw which is the flat guide is firmly placed on the cutting material and start the blade before moving it into the wood. Mark out your cuts beforehand and keep your fingers far away from the blade. Also be aware of what is below your cutting material so it doesn’t get snagged by the blade such as a cord, table or pant leg. With more experience, you’ll get the hang of using your jigsaw and learn how to cut corners (literally) and make smooth cuts around edges For more information: Call or WhatsApp (082) 882-6324 | (011) 789-4411 / (011) 036-0200 | marco@midasrandburg.co.za | 191 Bram Fischer Drive, Randburg.

  • How to claim for pothole damage to your car

    Are you sick and tired of expensive damages caused by potholes? If you answered yes, you have got to read this article on how to claim for pothole damage to your car! Yes you read that correctly. You can actually claim damages caused by potholes! if they meet certain requirements, of course. Motorists have become accustomed to the rigours of replacing tyres due to potholes but there is a way to circumvent the cost of new tyres. Not only are your tyres being damaged, but your vehicle’s rims can too, which leads to a whole host of other problems. Les McMaster, chairperson of the Motor Industry Workshop Association (MIWA), says rim damage can often lead to vehicle alignment and suspension problems. Craig Courtney-Leaver, CEO of alloy rim repair specialists, Wheel Collision, said, “If one feels a vibration in the steering wheel, the chances are one of the front rims are damaged and if one feels the vibration on the seat, then it is usually a rear rim.” So, what happens when you have replaced a burst or damaged tyre? Johannesburg Roads Agency (JRA) spokesperson Bertha Peters-Scheepers said, “The public may lodge a claim with the JRA’s Legal Department for alleged damages suffered due to road and/or infrastructure (such as manhole or kerb inlet) that the JRA as a municipal-owned entity of the City of Johannesburg is mandated to maintain.” There are a couple of procedures that have to be followed in order to claim. In addition to completing the claim form, attach the following documents: Police affidavit Copy of driver’s license of the claimant (in case of vehicle damage) Vehicle registration documents (in case of vehicle damage) Copy of ID Photos of the damage to the car (in case of vehicle damage) Three quotations or invoice/proof of payment Letter from insurance company confirming that the claim was not logged to own insurance Doctor’s report if there is personal injury JRA recommends that you either email or fax the documents. Doing both only delays the process. Peters-Scheepers added, “It is important [for readers to be aware] that the claims process does take time as we work with both our insurance brokers and insurers in the processing of claims.” Each claim is assessed on its merits and in accordance with our public liability policy which means not all claims will be successfully paid out. For additional information please contact JRA directly on: hotline@jra.org.za or 086 056 2874….
