Sometimes “contact engineering” works.
a piece of sturdy timber cut to fit inside the window reveal and encouraged to fit with a hammer could work, even supported by a couple of less sturdy verticals to make a Stonehenge style timber surround.
No more nails will bugger a wall way more than a couple of screws.
There are telescopic poles that will take a decent weight.
However telescopic (no matter how good) won’t hold much compared to screws.
my neighbour told me sometime between Tuesday /Wednesday that they are having a loft conversion.
I have no problem with that, apart from before they moved in they had the house totally redone and the builders worked 7 days a week for a couple of months.
Part of my concern is that they...
I would get a couple of short extension leads, fused at 10/13A.
some extension boards have slots on the back to hook onto screws.
Either screw them to the wall or the rear of the headboard and use a standard plug on each item.
Carefully is the answer.
I used to know a lot of deaf people, and they just learnt to be cautious
it was harder for a colleague of mine who was partially sighted. He relied more on sound than vision as by the time he saw a vehicle, it was too late to cross safely
I have no idea if that truck's noise was "white noise" (didn't sound like my definition of white noise) but I have nearly come a cropper walking in my supermarket car park when e vehicles reverse out of spaces. This is partly the fault of the driver not backing in but some kind of beep/tone...
Isn't it more sensible to cut "up and down"?
a mate was killed by driving a 4x4 along a hill rather than up/down.
Surely the manufacturer could say the max incline deemed to be safe? The CoG would be in your favour
Take a sheet of 8x4 rip it into a number of equal strips 8 feet by 6” (example)
then fit a 2x1 timber to each long edge, so that it’s wider at the top and bottom, waisted in the middle.
it is a lightweight truss/ girder
it works really well.
I did it in my loft to hold “standard” sized loft...
I think you might be over thinking?
I'd buy a wet/dry vacuum from Screwfix or similar and some bags.
By the time you fanny about with cyclonic dust collection and long tubes you'd have it done.
