Hello there. I'm Lee from iGas Heating Limited. Today I am going to be talking about the QuikCore drill adapter kit on behalf of Expert Trades and Tool Talk.
QuikCore was designed... Basically when like myself, I do a lot of flues and stuff. I'm a heating engineer, so I'm called in for flues, condense runs, things like that. Normally when I core a hole, obviously the brickwork stays inside my actual core itself, and then to get it out you've given it a whack with a hammer, trying to get screwdrivers. Some of them have holes around the core where you can get a screwdriver in and try wedge and it out, stuff like that, which I don't know if you, but with me personally, I find it a bit of a nightmare. Can be a right pain to be fair.
This is designed to take that pain away. Basically it comes with this attachment, which is the Quikcore knockout tool. So this actually sits inside behind the core drill adaptor. You just put that in it, give it a whack with a hammer and it pops it straight out. It's a really good design.
And it's all designed with quick release clips and stuff like that. So again, normally when I'm attaching my core to my normal core drill adapter, obviously you screw that in there. And then if you've been coring for a good 20 minutes or whatever, this can become really stiff and get stuck in there, and then you've got to get spanners and grips and things like that on it, to actually get it undone, which again can be a nightmare and a bit of a pain to actually get out.
Just show you how it all goes together. This is your normal just core drill attachment. I use mine in my cordless SDS. I've got Milwaukee SDS. This obviously just goes straight in the chuck, and then my core will go on to the end of that.
What Quikcore actually have, they have a Quikcore drill adapter. So you get your normal attachment. This screws onto here as normal, just like that. Nice and simple. I don't know if you can see that hole there? I'll talk to you about that in a second. You then get your Quikcore core adapter. This just slides over, yeah? And as you can see, there's the holes there. You then get a circlip, you put the circlip in there. Pop it on. Nice and easy, nice and quick. And then you attach your core to that normally. If I can screw it in properly.
Obviously you put your pilot in there, core your hole. And then, like I said, normally what you have to do to get the core out, you got to undo this part of the attachment. This bit obviously isn't normally there. This and this are joined together. You've got to undo it. Try and give it a good bang with a hammer to get the brick out. This is actually designed to eliminate that problem.
Now, the only negative I've found, I'm not sure if I'm actually doing this incorrectly, or if I'm missing a tool. These circlips are quite hard to get out, but one thing I've just noticed myself, I use the knockout tool, so once I've done my core, put my knockout tool in the actual, just to punch hole there. Give it a few bangs and that comes straight out. This then slides off. Yes, you've got your core drill adapter on it, on the end of your core. You then get your knockout tool, put that in there. That slides in there. And then you just give this a knock with a hammer. And that, I don't know if you can see that? That actually pushes the core out and it works really well.
That's pretty much it to be honest, guys. It's really simple to use, not bad in price to be fair, either. And it does take away that pain of having to undo this and giving this a whack with a hammer all the time, trying to get your actual bit of concrete or brick out of the hole.
Overall, I think it's really good. It feels really well made. Again, the only negative is them circlips are quite stiff to get out. I tried to do it by hand first and it just didn't happen. So I use this knock through tool, and it punches it out in about four punches. So, yeah. Nice and quick, nice and easy.
Hope you've enjoyed the video and yeah, it's a thumbs up from me. It's a good product and I will be getting one myself.
