    Replacing Plastic Inspection Chamber with Metal

    Thanks guys. I actually got it done with a different one. Of course the damned thing was bigger so I had to cut the bricks. Crap job done but at least it's done. Thanks.

    Replacing Plastic Inspection Chamber with Metal

    I need help guys. We had a plastic inspection chamber on the drive which my van wheel smashed though. I want to replace with with a metal one. See attached photos. The metal one is the same 300mm size but I'm not sure if I can just cement it down as is or if I should have a sleeve type thing...

    Right tool to cut half partition wall lower?

    You should have seen the mess I made when I cut the quartz counter top hole bigger for the induction hob with the angle grinder. It's still in every orifice 18 months later.

    Right tool to cut half partition wall lower?

    Thanks yes it will need stiffening I think. I have an angle grinder but need to buy a multi tool and maybe a laser level too. Thanks!!

    Right tool to cut half partition wall lower?

    Thanks. I think I'll buy a multi tool to expose the stud work and go from there.

    Right tool to cut half partition wall lower?

    Would a cheap ass drywall saw do the job for a few quid?

    Right tool to cut half partition wall lower?

    Thanks for the reply. Yes it's just plasterboard and metal studwork (shame its not wood). I've actually got a decent reciprocating saw but I fear trying to cut it all off at once is a bad shout. Maybe just cutting the plasterboard off at the right hight is best first then tackled what's behind...

    Right tool to cut half partition wall lower?

    Hi All, My kitchen has a ~8cm wide partition half wall with metal stud work. We want to cut it lower and then add an oak topper down the wall from the ceiling along the top then down to the floor. We've been quoted £1500 which I think is a mental price. My question is... what the heck kind...

    The bricks are perforated or engineering bricks meaning that there are three big holes in the middle. They may be full of mortar but might not be. I've researched a lot and this seems the safest solution ..... https://www.rawlplug.co.uk/product/r-kem-ii-with-threaded-rods-for-masonry/

    Might try resin anchors.

    .... hmm engineering bricks are hollow in places so maybe I have a problem.

    No idea. :-/ They are going into engineering bricks which will be a bugger to drill. I'll check the specs. Cheers.
