    Replacing fuse.

    Yes, they are. The one I have removed seems to have a normal looking fuse with another 'cap' covering each end, to which the lead is soldered. I have been trying to remove the cap but I'm sure I will distort them, making them unusable. I will try to solder a short length of copper to the side...

    Replacing fuse.

    Thanks for your reply. Guess I did not think it through regarding why the fuse has blown. But the fuse is on the power input side of the board so I assume that the current is only going in one direction. The fuse in the plug was fine. I made an executive decision and have bought a pack so...

    Replacing fuse.

    What ho one and all, I have an small ultra-sonic cleaner that I use for cleaning my glasses. Unfortunately, it has stopped working so before discarding, I thought about a repair. Opening, and I find the internal fuse has no continuity. It is a 5mm x 20mm and has the marking F5 and F1L250V...

    Brickwork spalling

    Thanks. Just slightly daunted by the amount of work; around 2.4m high and 10m long. Fortunately, most of it just needs a wire brush. When I say 'sealing', it was a 'breathable' masonry paint, just to make it a grey wall rather than the random coloured red brick.

    Brickwork spalling

    What ho one and all, I have a brick cavity boundary wall (it is mine) that originally, was the wall to the garage. The neighbours side is fine (that was the external wall) but my side (it was the internal) is not so good. The wall is now external on both sides. My side, many of the bricks...

    Laser line module

    Thanks. Don't know what the power supply voltage is, but having found units with the same DBXQ03B designation, 3v seems correct. Of course, the problem could be a broken connection inside the handle so perhaps releasing a few screws to investigate is the way forward.

    Laser line module

    What ho one and all, Kinda trivial question. I have a cross cut saw and the handy, laser projected line is not working. eBay searching show many available and some even the correct diameter, but ............! The non-working one has DBXQ03B on the side. One that I can find are listed as...

    Thermocouple

    Agreed the gas valve may be faulty. But this is not the first time it has happened, as as with previous times, I have removed the flame end, cleaned it with a bit of fine wet and dry, cleaned all around the fitting and replaced, and it works first time. While I have no way of knowing, I...

    Thermocouple

    Do you mean that oven and hob are sufficiently different to be not interchangeable? Given that it is just the hob, can I assume that any TC listed with Ikea or Whirlpool hob TC is OK?

    Thermocouple

    What ho one and all, I have an Ikea hob HGS4K which I believe to be from Whirlpool. Need a replacement thermocouple but am gobsmacked at the prices for Whirlpool parts. (https://www.espares.co.uk/product/es146424/hob-thermocouple---520mm) Oven thermocouples appear tobe a better price. Why...

    Amazon Dot

    Think they are as they can be found on the computer. 5 Live and Classic FM.

    Amazon Dot

    Many thanks. It is a good price and considerably less expensive that a DAB radio so will give it a go.

    Amazon Dot

    What ho one and all, Have the opportunity to buy a Gen2 Amazon Dot. I know it is behind the curve but I don't really need (or want) the very latest c**p.) The only reason to buy it is to hopefully get a better radio reception via the internet than we currently have with a regular FM or DAB...

    VOIP

    What ho one and all, The road I live in has recently had optical fibre installed and can now be connected to every house, should they want it. I kinda want it but .......? My wife is Japanese and frequently makes calls 'home.' At the moment, we use one of the various CPS (carrier...

    Flash

    Gentlemen and LGBTQ?+ (so a not to offend anyone!) Thanks the thoughts. Seems as if it is a bigger job than will really benefit me. Just have to move the light away a few feet or as suggested above, ND or even another diffusion sheet (throw a white sheet over the flash!)

    Flash

    Thanks very much. May not be as easy as I thought since there are actually three cables to the flash tube. One to either end of the tube and another that wraps around the tube. All part of activating the gas to create a blast of light.

    What do I need to understand about the resistor size?
  18. Rekusu

    Flash

    Yes, the plugs are still available; as mentioned above, it's a BULGIN PX0551 8 pin connector. Don't know what the flash voltage is but would assume that it is high. As the plug would not have to actually power anything,I guess if I found a suitable resistor, it bout be fitted within the plug...

    Familiar with the trigger voltage issue but that was not my question. However, some internet searching for Nikon D300 and I found this which was in reply to a similar question, from Nikon. "As long as the flash's sync voltage is less than 250 volts it will not damage the camera and should work...

    Toodle pip;"The use as hello/goodbye was first recorded in 1906 in the Marvel, a boys' comic and would become especially popular among the characters of the comic novelist P.G. Wodehouse." Thanks for the replies. The attached is a photo of the flash pack, a Courtenay Photon 800. Probably...
