    Concrete Gutters

    Earlier this year I had our concrete gutters fully re-lined. Already there are some damp patches at the top of the interior walls. So, a complete waste of money. The next step will be either aluminium linings or complete removal and replacement with uPVC. Which is best. Aluminium lining...

    Painting Garage

    I am going to paint the inside of my garage which is lined with regular breeze blocks. I am thinking of putting on a layer of diluted pva followed by regular emulsion. My worry is that the garage is adjoined by a boiler room with a gas boiler. There is also a small freezer in the garage. Both of...

New rubber seals fitted for now but will need to get the wheels refurbished soon. Any advice about where to get this done? Is there a reliable national firm that could do the...

    Selling old woodworking tools.

    I have a number of old woodworking tools that I need to sell but am not sure of the best way of going about it. The tools were owned by my late grandfather and date from the late Victorian or early 1900s period. I want to get some cash for them but also want them to go to a 'good home'. Are...

    Karcher K4 Pressure Washer

    I'm thinking of buying one of these. If you've got one you may be able to help me with this. The Ads talk about it being possible to draw water via a bucket. But, will it also connect to an outside tap using a standard Hoselock 'yellow and orange' fitting? Also, what do you think of the product...

    Kitchen Units - Bristol Area

    I am looking to buy a small number of ready made up kitchen base units and wall units to install in my garage. I don't want to buy a full kitchen! Does anyone know of a supplier in the Bristol area who would have some odd units in stock - would save me a lot of searching and don't want to resort...

    Worcester Boiler Cutting Out

    Yesterday we had a gas leak. Gas engineer fitted a new pipe into the boiler (regulator?) and all appeared ok. The boiler working fine before the leak. Now it is continually cutting out. Pressing the reset button, tries to start up and then cuts out. Anyone got any ideas? Many thanks.

    Wirquin Dual Flush Button - back nut question

    I need to replace the whole button assembly. It works via two rods. Just been doing some more research on ebay. Seems that there are versions with white or grey back nuts. The grey ones are post 2007 and they are not interchangeable.

    Zanussi Fridge Freezer - Worth repairing?

    The fridge freezer ran very noisily for the last 24 hours and has now stopped working completely. Bearing in mind that I can buy a new basic replacement for around £250 is it going to be worth the cost of repairing the old one. Its about 8 years old and has been first class so far but I'm...
