    Did you also report the seller for promoting counterfeit goods?

    100% agree, and would be putting that same statement regarding the brand name to Paypal. I hope for Moondog that Paypal are straight up for the same agreement in this case.

    The grey area will be how was it advertised, under Paypal you can claim if the item is "Significantly Not as Described" in this case the following applies "The item was advertised as authentic but is not authentic (i.e. counterfeit)". https://www.paypal.com/au/webapps/mpp/ua/useragreement-full?locale.x=en_AU#buying The way I read it is that they will reimburse if an item was advertised as authentic but what is delivered is not an authentic item.

    Assuming its from the add that is still up on the book of faces then the carton says that it is 20Kg, that would include packaging but I dont expect the packaging to be 8Kg. Also has printed on the back panel "Made *****onesia" ???, assume Indonesia. Good to have PayPal to fall back on, but unsure how it will play out in this case. Would not be opening or testing at all, if its obvious from the outside start the Paypal claim straight away and if your Paypal is linked to a credit card ask...

    Get a sample tested, it is the only way to know if there was asbestos in the first place. Even if there was you were wearing masks. There is most likely significant more risk of injury every time you go for a drive in your car, or cross the road.

    Yes well aware of the tools, I have used them and could probably dig some out if I looked. Don’t see the relevance in the discussions. Not pushing them at all, just pointing out that the manufacturer is Australian based and made for the Australian market and providing information on where someone should direct questions regarding the compliance or suitability. Rather than relying on statements on a forum that the products do not meet Australian standards. My responses regarding the rear...

    Replied before you clarified your statement, not sure where you get the pictures that show those details for the 64 or 65 series on that site.

    There are no pictures that show what you want, Classic Electric is the company that manufactures the reproduction Art Deco switch assembly sold through multiple resellers and shown in the OP. If anyone wanted clarification on the approvals for use in Australia that would be the best starting point.

    Regular trowel finished concrete should not constantly turn to dust, that is usually a sign that it has not been finished correctly, eg overworked, dusted with cement powder to reduce water, etc. If you want smooth then burnishing or polishing is the go, a helicopter can be used. This will not seal the concrete it will still absorb liquid spills, and oil will leave stains. Epoxy is the ultimate but as you found it costs, another alternative is one of the concrete sealers like used on stencil...

    Yep the switches have a yoke, seen here https://www.schots.com.au/60-series-switch-mechanism-only.html Here is the company that make the assembly for sale in Australia https://classicelectric.com.au/ I am sure if anyone is concerned of their suitability for use in Australia they could contact them to get it clarified.

    Yes they are Clipsal, most likely not in the catalog as they do not sell the units and are more than likely made under a licensing agreement for one of the restoration suppliers. Closer image showing the socket assembly. https://www.perioddetails.com.au/product/60-series-single-socket-mechanism/ If you still do not believe visit one of the restoration outlets and have a closer look in person.

    Dig down in the garden bed near the tank where you can to expose the pipe, that is the only area exposed that will allow a quick look. If no breaks found pour some bright food colour in and turn on the hose, keep looking for where the colour appears first. Wont be an exact location but might give a general idea, anything else will probably need a camera.

    If you have to ask how to connect it then the answer is call an electrician to do it. Official regulations are that that work must be carried out by a licensed electrician.

    Would not be digging under a slab in the condition you state it is. Dig up concrete, dig hole, create cellar, pour new concrete floor. Building rules and regulations should be followed for such a construction.

    I have two types of locks that have a similar shaped cam. One uses pressed sections as a pair and the other is a cast brass, bronze ??? Pretty sure yours matches the cast one. Check the dimensions and let me know if you want just the part or the entire lock.

    Are the blocks level with the length of the piece they are attached to ? If so probably installed to allow machining of the timber before jointing.

    As there are also large areas that the render is separating I suspect that it is the render at fault and would not be blaming the paint for the issue. I do not believe any primer or undercoat would have made any significant difference. It will just be a matter of removing any loose material, paint and render. Then re-render and paint. I would look at one of the acrylic renders but would look carefully at the manufacturers recommendations for suitable use.
