Some chainsaws have a "lock" on the trigger so you have it hold itself on full throttle to start it.

comment Can you re-shape an internal brick wall feature?
A photo might help people give a more detailed answer. Perhaps also add at least your country to your profile, so people will have an idea of typical construction methods that might have been used.

comment How do I wire a pull cord ceiling switch?
No. The 45A switch will only be 2 pole. You need to replace it with a 3 pole switch. You should be able to get one from the likes of B&Q, TLC, Screwfix, etc.

@naught101 As long as you go slowly and let the drill do the work, rather than trying to force it, it works fine.

Nice one... I had similar in mind for my answer, but didn't readily find the photos to illustrate my point.
