BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT

Should you buy a franchise?

With high levels of unemployment and the downturn in the economy, more and more people are opting for starting their own business. By Sybrand Bezuidenhout STARTING A BUSINESS is not limited to aged and experienced individuals, but sometimes this is the only avenue for youth to generate their own income. So where do you start if you have no experience and no savings? Buying a franchise might be a good option as good franchise concepts provide initial guidance and support, offer a proven operating system, an established trademark, mentoring and consulting services as well as a branded business with a definite re-sale value. FURTHER ADVANTAGES INCLUDE:

NEWS NEWLY LAUNCHED the battery has another clever way to keep cool; each and every cell is surrounded by EGO’s unique Keep Cool phase change material that absorbs heat energy and keeps individual cells at their optimum temperature for longer. Charging times vary from 20 to 70 minutes, depending on the type of charger selected, either Standard or Rapid. The battery’s charging times are a major talking point, given that Lithium-ion batteries, on average, take about two hours or more to recharge. The EGO Arc Lithium battery range is good for a 900 charge cycle. Locally that translates to a good four-five year lifespan. Commercially it will depend on the charge cycles. Another key benefit of the EGO range is the lower running costs. The cost of running an EGO Power Plus product for a month is around the same as using a 2-stroke product for a day. “Another benefit is the easy set up and starting, with no filling up with fuel required, while the product range starts up with the push of a button, rather than a pull cord like on petrol-powered tools. Unlike large, heavy petrol mowers, the EGO Power plus mower’s fold flat design makes storage and cleaning simple. The range is offered locally with a 2-year warranty on the battery, and a 3-year warranty on the machine itself. Visit: www.smithpower.co.za

TEK SCREWS TEK screws drill their own pilot holes to combine two pieces, saving a lot of time and effort.

Choosing the right one: Dual Thread Roofing TEK Screw • Drills through the IBR sheeting and at the point where it starts to drill through the metal structure below; the break in thread allows it to spin in the sheeting while it drills into the structure.

9mm

Type 3 Point

• Small top section of thread keeps the sheeting intact and prevents movement.

Steel • Thin sheet metal to metal 9mm

Type 3 Point 5.5mm Ø

Type 17 Point 5.5mm Ø

12mm

Wood • Thin sheet metal to wood • No pilot hole required (cutting point)

Long Drill Point • Used when fastening thicker pieces of metal, combined thickness 2mm – 10mm. • Fine thread screw is ideal for thicker metals.

Type 5 Point

4.2mm Ø

4mm

Truss Head • Broad, flat head for grip • Flat head = less noticeable

Type 3 Point

Tek screw length

• Consider the total thickness of the materials – Object + substrate + space between. • Tek screw should be able to drill through the object and through the substrate and extend at least the drill bit, plus suffiecient thread (NB!).

NB!

• Example, if the total thickness of the materials is 48mm, don’t use the 50mm Tek screws as the threaded length will be insuffiecient. Rather buy the 65mm Tek screws as they will extend beyond the substrate.

for more information, visit

www.eureka.co.za


Drilling point length • It’s very IMPORTANT that the drilling point is long enough to completely drill through the material before the threads engage. • Example, if you need to drill through 4mm plate, the drilling point should be longer than 4mm. • If the drilling point is too short and the threads engage too early, they can cause the fastener to bind and break off.

Point is TOO SHORT!

• The drill flute allows the debris to exit the hole that is being drilled. • If the drill flute becomes embedded in the material, the drill chips will clog the flute and cause the drill point to overheat and fail.

flute

NOTE: A TEK SCREW MUST ALWAYS DRILL THROUGH BOTH PIECES OF MATERIAL, ALLOWING THE FULL DRILL POINT TO EXTEND BEYOND THE SECOND PIECE. IT CANNOT EMBED ITSELF LIKE A SCREW, IT MIGHT BREAK.

Point is long enough

Installation Tips 90°

• ATTENTION: Drill slower than 1 500rpm! • Apply only enough pressure for the screw to drill. The screw should do the drilling. • It is important to hold the power drill at 90° to the surface to prevent failure. Adjust the speed of your drill before starting

Hold your power drill at 90° to the surface you are drilling into

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS 1

Should smoke appear during use? NO!! Absolutely not! • Drilling speed too high. • OR applying too much downward pressure.

2

Why is the point melting?

3

• Applying too much downward pressure. • OR drilling speed too high. • OR drill flute too short.

Why is the screw breaking? • Drilling tip is too short. Thread is engaging before the tip is finished drilling. • Or drilling point not long enough to drill through the thickness of the material. • Drill is on hammer action, set to normal operation.

Scan this code for a helpful instructional video!

Why is nothing happening? • At normal drilling speeds it is difficult to see if the screw is rotating in the correct direction. • Stop and make sure the power drill is not set to ‘Reverse’ mode.
