    Filled gaps in lacquered pine floor cracking and coming out in long strips - can this be fixed?

    Next time I'll just go for slivers - the cost was prohibitive at the time, but with hindsight, I should have spent the extra money. I can't leave the gaps, because it's a ground floor flat, so when the lights shine, you can literally see dirt/concrete. It's very unsightly on the gaps that are...

    Filled gaps in lacquered pine floor cracking and coming out in long strips - can this be fixed?

    Hi yes, I wrote it in the title of the post. It's a pine floor. The gaps were filled because it's a common procedure to fill the gaps in floorboards

    Filled gaps in lacquered pine floor cracking and coming out in long strips - can this be fixed?

    Hi there I had my floor laid about twelve months ago, and I'm assuming they didn't do a very good job.. I have huge cracks appearing all over the gaps that were filled using, I believe, a mixture of PVA and sawdust that was then stained. It's cracking out in large strips, as you can see...

    Forgot to mix Bullseye 123 before applying to sanded skirting board - end of the world?

    Hey mate, thanks for replying - sounds like I might be OK in that case - it was definitely very gloopy white, just like normal emulsion, visually. Although I laid it with a foam roller and it went on VERY thin. I assume that's normal. Thanks for the advice about curing, that's the kind of thing...

    Forgot to mix Bullseye 123 before applying to sanded skirting board - end of the world?

    Bugger, completely forgot to stir before using it. Have I messed up? Also, if I haven't ruined it, how long after applying can I then go ahead and fill gaps, etc?

    What's the best course of action for repainting craply built and poorly painted built cupboards

    OK thanks for the advice guys, much appreciated. Millwright, that sounds like a pretty straightforward process, I assumed it would be a nightmare. The area I'm working is right by the front door, and I happen to have a big paint sprayer's mask I use for these jobs, so this sounds like the best...

    What's the best course of action for repainting craply built and poorly painted built cupboards

    Hi Millwright, thanks for replying - is that generally the best course of action? I've never done it before and assumed it was a faff and easy to damage the wood so was trying to avoid it if possible. Unless I'm wrong about it being a faff. I've got the cupboard to a reasonably decent standard...

    What's the best course of action for repainting craply built and poorly painted built cupboards

    Hi everyone, Just repainting my hallway - we had builders in for an extension, and they absolutely wrecked the whole hallway by using it as a storage area for the materials. Have filled and sanded all walls and repainted back to white, have filled skirting, sanded, and repainted. My remaining...

    Can I turn mdf doors into bifold doors?

    You were never in, though. You had three opportunities to answer the question, but all you did was waste time. I'm not being rude by pointing that out, you're just a bit of a sensitive old fella who doesn't see how frustrating it can be to ignore a question by concentrating on irrelevancies. The...

    Can I turn mdf doors into bifold doors?

    It can be frustrating to wait for a response, and then that response be a question rather than an answer. It's predictable, on every DIY forum, that no matter how specific your question, the first response will be never, ever be helpful. You were that person, and that's OK. I was pretty clear...

    Can I turn mdf doors into bifold doors?

    Hey, thanks for the response. I really, really don't mean to be rude, but if you're able to answer just the question I had, that would be great. As I said, it cannot be fixed without much more work. It's not a case of simply scribing the frame.

    Attaching a 44x44mm baton to a solid wall + another question about damp walls

    Sorry, it's me, I used an email to log in and didn't realise I'd registered twice! The baton is for a frame I'm building for a laundry basket in the first instance, and in the second instance, the wall is definitely not tanked. It's an outside wall technically that we turned into an inside wall...

    Can I turn mdf doors into bifold doors?

    Hi there I purchased 9mm sheets of mdf, and cut and glued them to make 18mm shaker style doors. It turns out the frame I was going to put them in is old, and for various reasons, isn't square, and cannot be fixed without a ton of headache. My plan is to turn the current set of doors into...

    Rangemaster Professional Deluxe 110 suddenly stopped working - no power

    Hmm, this is strange, there does appear to be power going to the two hobs - not enough to turn them on, but if I turn the dial over so slightly, the light will come on, but if I turn it any further, it'll then go off again. Thanks for the advice, Nozzle, is this a layman's fix, or should I call...

    Rangemaster Professional Deluxe 110 suddenly stopped working - no power

    No, no power to the clock, either. Nothing on the oven will respond. Have tested the grill element and the two glass hobs next tot he gas hobs. Gas still functions, obviously, but no ignition

    Rangemaster Professional Deluxe 110 suddenly stopped working - no power

    HI thanks for such a fast reply. Yes, the light is still on at the power switch. One thing: For the last few days, very occasionally when I turn on the left oven, there would be a high pitched ringing sound come out which would stop if I turned the oven off and then wouldn't happen again when...

    Rangemaster Professional Deluxe 110 suddenly stopped working - no power

    Hi everyone, hoping someone here can advise me on my problem that just happened a few minutes ago. Had the oven on, and it suddenly died on me. No power going to it at all. I've done a small search on Google, but I can't get any specific info for my model of oven. Does anyone have this same...
