    Where can I get a circular bit of plastic?

    Oooh... that's too expensive. I was hoping there would be a 'rubbery' glue. Something that doesn't go rock hard - but has some elasticity in.

    Where can I get a circular bit of plastic?

    @scbk - very clever. I'll look at other stickers as well. @Old Salt - I'm still thinking about adding a piece of plastic. That might be the best option as opposed to a sticker. The plastic disc will be matt acrylic. The bin top itself... not sure - just rough/smooth plastic. Can't describe any...

    Where can I get a circular bit of plastic?

    Needs to look presentable. The bin is in an open room. I found a seller selling plastic discs on ebay - 99p delivered. That will do me fine. What glue should I use? As mentioned: the surface is grainy and not smooth. Thanks.

    Where can I get a circular bit of plastic?

    Hide damage It's a bin from Ikea that they don't sell anymore. The bin is the recycle bin, so not worried about making air tight.

    Where can I get a circular bit of plastic?

    See pic below: Where can I get a big of plastic to cover? Can be a white or black disc for example - just something that will cover. + What glue would I need to use? The surface is a grainy plastic - not smooth. Thanks.

    How to fill upvc holes?

    Thanks for the replies guys. 'NO NONSENSE ANTI-CRACK ACRYLIC WHITE 310ML' - is perfect. Any tips on keeping dry and still OK to use a long time after using the tube? £2.69 - can't complain. But still hate wasting and would rather save the environment by not purchasing more. The current method I...

    How to fill upvc holes?

    I need to fit new window handles. The old handles holes, only 2 alone up. I'll have to drill 2 new holes. For the 2 other holes... How do I fill up? I don't think I need to fill up. Will be OK. But... I thought there would be some plastic filler for this purpose? I've seen a few YouTube...

    Need advice replacing a 2 way switch

    Sorry for the late reply. I opened up tonight and took a few pics. See below. There is a yellow and green cable - but I can't see a loose end. I'm completely baffled. Some of the wiring is bundled up in red tape. Could something be happening in there? So confused now. I was late night...

    Need a hose lock part connecting to tap

    @JohnD replying to old threads? LOL I ended up buying direct from hozelock The tap adapter was not available ANYWHERE All others sold everywhere were the wrong one. It was only £2.50 delivered I think, so not bad.

    Super confused now I'll open up again and see if I can find the earthing cable.

    Need advice replacing a 2 way switch

    Oh... the yellow cable I'm referring to. I assumed that was the earthing cable?

    Need advice replacing a 2 way switch

    I did exactly what @EFLImpudence told me - the difference being that the earth cable is connected to the same location as in the old one. See his pic below:

    Need help getting correct cockspurs

    Thanks for the replies guys. I ended up order 17mm from Amazon. Fairly cheap at just over £5 each. I think we need wedges in all windows anyway... So I'll be buying some for replacing around the house. QUESTION: are the wedges glued on or can I just prise them off? Thanks.

    Need advice replacing a 2 way switch

    @EFLImpudence I followed your diagram - what a lifesaver! And... it worked only for 1 switch. The other switch doesn't work. There are 2 sets of lights. The left switch controls the main lights. The right switch controls lights under the kitchen cabinets. About 4/5 meters away we have...

    Need help getting correct cockspurs

    @RandomGrinch I think it does matter. The ones I got from toolstation won't fit - out by 10mm at least. I guess I'll just go for pot luck and buy ones that 'look' similar ‍‍

    Need help getting correct cockspurs

    I need to replace 2 cockspurs. See pic below: Ideally, I want to buy the same and just screw into the existing holes - but this part, I'm just not sure about. I bought a pair from Toolstation - they're the wrong depth - they don't come with any measurements at all so I didn't know beforehand...

    Need advice replacing a 2 way switch

    @EFLImpudence Thanks for the advice. So... connect the earth... turn upside down and just copy the existing wiring? I was a bit confused what you were saying in your diagram with the yellow triangles. Let me know. Thanks.

    Need advice replacing a 2 way switch

    I'm trying to replace a 2 way light switch in the kitchen. I opened up and the earth wire connection is NOT connected properly. I'm so confused. The existing light switch is at least 12+ years old. See pic below: The new switch I purchased is shown below: I would normally just replace...
