What we call B&Q opposite Abu Haggag Mosque and near to the entry of the Government Sook. If not able to buy the drill there walk down to the Emilio Hotel and turn Right down there are plenty of shops selling tools. I got my B&D Cordless from B and Q. Drill its also from there, both masonry and quick twist metal drill bits.

As stated our local B&Q sell all power tools as many shops do here, but if you have a problem they will exchange it without hassle, not like a lot of the local shops. Our B&Q don't sell the filler. You can buy a ready mixed filler here called-one stop or gap fill or crack repair. All sell at around 35/40Le per tub. Very good filler that will allow you to fill really deep cracks in one go and once dry will not shrink or crack. Can be painted over next day dependent on the depth you have filled. Most hardware or paint shops sell one of the products mentioned. If it seems to be a bit hard on top when you open the tub, just give it a quick stir and it will soften up nicely.
Life is your's to do with as you wish- do not let other's try to control it for you. Count Dusak- 1345.
