    Help with creating an accurate cut with a jigsaw please

    ^ Ah yeah I got a mask and goggles beforehand, thanks. No friend with a hairdryer though unfortunately. :( Any advice on how I can cut out a rectangular section in a piece of wood and have it nice and straight? I was able to achieve decent results by clamping a straight edge and then running...

    carpet

    ^ :lol: I have some stuff by Escort Homecare just called 'Stain Remover 2' which I have found very effective. I got this at my local dry cleaners. But now they've replaced it with Super Clens Water Based Stain remover, but I'd imagine it's just as good.

    Help with creating an accurate cut with a jigsaw please

    Best way/surface to cut large-ish pieces of wood on?

    Do I really need a circular saw, or will a jigsaw suffice?

    Not household related, but still very relevant I think. I'm planning a little stealth project in the boot of my car, involving concealing a couple of amplifiers with a false floor I will flashion out of mdf. There are some contoured edges of the boot, that I plan to use a jigsaw on the mdf...

    Scratching from scourer on shower floor

    I was just wondering if there was a solution to removing/masking this kinda of scratching. I took a scourer to my shower floor to remove some very stubborn scum. It did the trick but now the floor is scratched. This scratching doens't show very easily as it has not penetrated the plastic white...
