Prob uses the universal quick connect nipple
But if you already have a karcher with the twist connector I guess may be better to go that route
Or give interchem a call to find out if theirs has a model with karcher connector

they also sell a simple green foam wash which works ok

I took my karcher machine to fix and whilst there a guy was asking about the price and how come theirs was so much more
the karcher guy admitted the interchem one is not bad and that theirs was german made though

I have it (the nozzle/reservoir and the liquid) that I use with my small electric karcher powerwasher (1400psi 1.3gpm)

It works well enough for washing cars, and foams pretty well. I suspect it would be even better with a higher psi washer.

I also occasionally use the nozzle with chemical guys maxi suds foaming wash and it work well with that too.

Saw the same karcher foam nozzle in Allied yesterday for $169.Image
If u already have an electric karcher p/washer its a great accessory - it works really well. There's an adjust dial on it to control the foaming level (i.e. the amount of wash it uses).

The karcher liquid is not a necessity for the nozzle, as there are other foaming washes on the market you can use. The karcher liquid foams pretty decent, but I personally find it a bit expensive. As someone mentioned above, interchem has a couple foaming wash options and I believe those may be cheaper.

I don't know what brands Bhagwansing carries but if you are simply interested in crimping and stripping an occasional 1.5mm2 to 4.0mm2 stranded wire, I have seen them there. I have also seen them at other hardware stores. Vicegrip, Stanley, Irwin, Kobalt, etc.

If you want something for wiring an entire house of building a vehicle harness, you may want to get Packard, Crescent, Klein, or Greenlee, to name a few.

You might find those at Modern Electric, Anands Electric, MEPCO, or others. You'll also find telecom and cable crimpers there.

Even for stranded wire, there are three or four different major types of crimp profiles so you will want the tool for your type of terminals that you plan to use.

Anyone ever saw this down here?

Was just wondering before I order it, cause as Royal Castle says, support T&T, buy local.

I've never seen a WS for sale in Trinidad. That said, I believe that they are fantastic for what they are intended for: putting an edge on small to medium blades in a hurry.

If you sharpen a lot of kitchen or pocket knives, get one with a couple of extra packs of belts.

If you sharpen just a few kitchen or pocket knives, get a Spyderco Sharpmaker and a strop.

If you want to sharpen just about anything else (machetes, axes, chisels, etc.) and any kitchen or pocket knife, use a 1x30 belt sander.

Bear in mind that I have used glass, cardboard, Levis, leather belts, and coffee mugs to sharpen knives so I may be biased.

Yea I'm gonna use it to sharpen quickly mostly kitchen knives, I know it will convex the edge but I guess I'm at that age now that I want convenience more than anything. I do use a couple whetstones but they are so time consuming. I still have a lansky diamond system for my pocket knives and I'll keep using that for my good knives.

Car, how much did it cost to clear it if you can recall, thinking about just getting the ken onion edition one time and later on purchasing the belt grinder attachment.

Bought that when the exchange rate was 6.25 and no 7% tax. About 6 years ago. Go for the Ken onion one time.

I recently built a wood version of the apex sharpener jig which uses sandpaper on a long wooden block
really ass proof and does the job

I previously owned a chinese clone of the apex which uses stones which need to be regularly flattened

however if you take the effort to learn to hand sharpen you can easily sharpen a knife on sandpaper mounted over a hard rubber surface just as well, which is what I used to do before.
