  • Engine Bay Cleaning

    Next time you are at your car, have a look under the hood and decide if your car needs an Engine bay cleaning #Carwash We stock a massive range of car care products. Pop past Randburg Midas and pick up all of the products you will need. The engine bay of a car is very often overlooked when it comes to cleaning as it may be considered a ‘non-essential’ and the fact that the vast majority of the time nobody can see under the bonnet or hood means that often little attention is paid to it compared with other areas. Cleaning your engine bay and keeping it clean should be considered though, for a number of important reasons. Your car’s engine bay contains a number of components that can become very dirty, very quickly due to the location of these parts and the nature of the things they do. Keeping your engine bay clean ensures that excess grease, oil and dirt is unable to build up and accumulate in and around important or sensitive parts. Components critical to the operation of your car will perform better and be more reliable if kept clean and maintained. Like washing your car, cleaning the engine bay helps you to ‘get to know it’ and that means that you can catch any potential problems earlier on before they have the chance to develop into something more serious. For example whilst cleaning your engine bay you will become aware of any loose plugs or connections, corroded contacts, worn or perished piping or fluid/oil leaks. All of these things can potentially lead to more serious and costly problems later on in your cars life if neglected and allowed to develop. There is also the important factor of resale value. Keeping your engine bay clean will almost certainly help with the resale value of your car and will be viewed by potential purchasers in good light, especially if other similar cars that have been viewed had dirty and neglected looking engine bays. A clean engine bay suggests that the rest of the vehicle has also been properly maintained and treated with care during its lifetime. Once your engine bay has had a thorough clean it should not need properly cleaning again for a good period of time. When regularly washing your vehicle you should dry off any excess water from the shuts and similar areas under the…

  • 10 Circular Saw tips and tricks

    A circular saw is no toy, but after reading these 10 circular saw tips and tricks, you would be more confident is using one #Powertool For all your tool needs to and see us at Randburg Midas. Most novice do-it-yourselfers feel perfectly comfortable using an electric drill or jigsaw, but nearly all of them are hesitant to pick up a portable circular saw. And that’s not surprising when you consider that drills and jigsaws are relatively safe, quiet and easy to control. A portable circular saw, on the other hand, is a powerful, noisy, sawdust-spewing brute that can inflict serious injury if it’s used improperly—it’s on our list of the 5 Most Dangerous Tools. However, to improve your DIY skills and advance the size and scope of your weekend projects, it’s important to learn to cut with a circular saw. Here are 10 tips to help you cut safely and more confidently. Reminder: Wear eye protection when using any power tool. Inspect the Saw Before each use, run a quick safety check on the saw. Be sure the lower blade guard retracts smoothly and snaps back when released. Check the blade for chipped or broken teeth; replace the blade if you find any damage. On corded saws, inspect the power cord for cracks. If using a cordless saw, make sure the battery is fully charged. Remember to unplug the cord or remove the battery before loosening, tightening, or changing the blade. Check the Blade The speed and quality of the cut depends on the condition of the saw blade. Never cut with a dull, rusty, or damaged blade. I recommend using a thin-kerf carbide-tipped combination blade, which can be used for crosscuts and rip cuts in solid wood and plywood. With the saw unplugged or the battery removed, adjust the saw’s depth of cut so the blade extends no more than 1/4 in. past the board’s edge. Circular saws aren’t just woodcutting tools. When fitted with the proper blade, the saw can also saw through various types of metal, and through masonry such as brick, stone and concrete. Find the Proper Saw Position There’s no hard-and-fast rule regarding which direction to make the cut, but whenever possible position the saw with its motor facing toward the larger section of board that isn’t falling away when cut. That way, the saw’s base plate, or shoe, will be fully supported throughout the cut…
