Makita UK is helping to restore a Grade II listed, 17th Century barn on a dairy farm near Colchester in rural Essex as part of the timber frame repair course run by the Historic Buildings & Conservation Team at Essex County Council. The Makita DP4003 rotary drill used by coursework instructor Rick Lewis is the drill of choice to demonstrate to the paying students. Many of them are skilled builders, carpenters and plasterers keen to learn traditional building techniques and methods.
