    Hi all. Can anybody point me in the direction of a decent spray paint course? Ideally a one day course. Most ive found are apprenticeships, but I plan on doing my own work. Based in London but willing to travel Cheers, Stu

    Florescent lighting, multiple units

    Thanks for your help so far, below is a photo of the old light fitting. You can see the two lots of live and negatives twisted together. One of each of those ran to the second light fitting.

    roof replacement 3 bed semi 1930s

    Sorry fella but I disagree. If you do it that way you're going to have the tiles out of line on nigh on every course, the full length of the roof. Then tile and half and cuts up the middle somewhere. Not a bit of me.

    roof replacement 3 bed semi 1930s
