    Swan neck restriction

    I don't want debris to go down into the shared down pipe with the neighbour. The down pipe is on their side of the fence. Even when I have access to the swam neck, it's likely the bottom end of the swam neck is beyond my reach. I won't know until I try. But I am not going to plan for something...

    Swan neck restriction

    From the water marks, I estimate the blockage to be in area A. What is the likelihood of the piece at B is glued on? This piece looks a bit anti-gravity to me to be able to hold on purely by friction. If I am able to pull off the B piece, I can then poke a stick up the straight piece above to...

    Swan neck restriction

    I have proper access, just not at the moment. I won't need access if I can confirm it now nothing is blocked. Cam on stick is adequate for now. The exit end of the swam neck looks clear.

    Swan neck restriction

    The swam neck is not within touching distance. No way to see things without cam on stick.

    Swan neck restriction

    What I have tried that failed: put an inspection camera in there. It hasn't auto focus so all I know is that the swam neck down to the first bend is all clear. What I have tried that might succeed: I dropped a steel chain into the swam neck. If it comes out the other end then I know it has a...

    Swan neck restriction

    Do you mean I run water into it? The gutter is maybe 8 meters up. Does the water mains have the pressure to get up there? This may be a silly question because the loft tank sits at around the gutter level, and water does get up there. But I have no idea how the water mains work or if the mains...

    Swan neck restriction

    I think there is restriction in a piece of swan neck. This is evidenced by over flow of the gutter in heavy rain resulting in water spilling out from the gutter sides. The gutter is shared by two town houses. It remains possible that the over flow could be to do with insufficient capacity. From...

    Bulb blowing

    It's my first ever bulb blowing taking out a fuse. Hence I am completely unfamiliar with the situation. I will see how well the LED does. The 12W LED is brighter than the 40W incandescent and an excellent replacement.

    Bulb blowing

    Would a flash result in an infinite draw, in other words it would have made no difference if the fuse was 13A?

    Bulb blowing

    Found the 5A fuse on the standard plug blown. Replacing that fixed it. The plug supplied 2x 40W bulb plus the fan. Was 5A adequate for that? The hood label said 205W, which suggested less than 1A draw. The bulbs were replaced with 2x 12W LEDs.

    Bulb blowing

    Not drastic enough for a 30-40 year old unit.

    Bulb blowing

    The bulb failed after 6 months or so. Although it wasn't a new bulb. Still, the blowing seems excessive. You can't ruin a sleeve bearing by washing. I have LED bulbs arriving from china just now and hence noticed the old one blown. It wasn't my hood, but the user did not complain.

    Bulb blowing

    I did not replace any fuse previously. I just washed everything and it was working. I don't recall if there was a fuse in the hood. The unit is plugged into a wall socket. I haven't yet checked if the fuse in the standard plug is blown yet.

    Bulb blowing

    I have a 40w incandescent bulb blowing in a cooker hood. A previous bulb was blown from the same location. After the bulb blew, a second bulb in the hood stopped working, same for the fan. Basically, the hood lost power after the bulb blowing. I am wondering if the bulb blowing caused the...

    Powering power tools from car

    I don't mind gambling when shopping and my luck had been extraordinary - the cheap stuff just kept going with an infinite life. Other kind of gambling bores me. Also the results were never good. When I was 16 I gambled on a two horse race and lost. That put me off horses and similar for life...

    Fixing bolt to wall

    Youtube seems convincing. Some people here don't seem to know what's going on even though my every post says no hammering.

    Fixing bolt to wall

    Maybe I don't intend to stop it? If my priority is to have no blow out, then I would be willing accept the price of a mark. Nothing suggests to me the mark can't be cleared. The problem here is yours and mine priorities are different. Your interest is to have a tidy surface even if you blow half...

    Fixing bolt to wall

    I was more asking if you have any video on it, not just your own. To drill with water, obviously you'd put water in first before drilling. The water would keep the bit cool. I am thinking of spraying in some water and not filling it like a pool.

    Fixing bolt to wall

    Powderizing is the only thing that will work for bits with rounded cutters. Water can be used with the bosch blue painted flutes with sharp cutters. The goal would be to not use hammering to avoid blowing out. Water would improve cutting power. The alternative is to use incremental bit sizes...

    Fixing bolt to wall

    Have you a video for that? I am unconvinced. Water would have kept the drill bit not so hot in the first place. Water would have some effect on the masonry as well, maybe weakens it. Water would certainly have congealed the powder and allow them to be expelled by the flutes making drilling faster.
