    But did nanny step in at some stage and pursue legislation that a person building an electrical appliance like an amplifier (a common thing) to suddenly be illegal. If so, I would like to see that. It was such a common thing to terminate LV transformers for such projects and I cannot see the difference and that of repairing a home appliance, or as in this instance the OP running a string of outlets terminated to a 3-pin plug. Just because insurance companies and electrical trades say it is...

    We know that would be stupid but if the extension socket outlets are surface types rather than behind the wall terminated, then what part of the book would be thrown at them.

    Except for the first outlet termination, would be interested where code shows this type of DIY is illegal.

    Today I snipped the flower heads. There aren't a lot but strange how they are suddenly appearing in dribs and drabs. I had intended to paint the leaves but thought pulling them out being better. But now I will paint the leaves with an artist's brush having listened to the advice given here.

    Thanks droog, then I expect it is going to be a challenge to destroy them without killing the surrounding lawn.

    These things established during winter and wondering what they are and how to deal with them. Pulling them out is futile as they just break off at ground level. Never seen them before. Any advice appreciated.

    One thing to consider. If everyone drove an EV for long distance travels, a lot of real-estate will be needed for when they are parked up charging. At a guess at least many times more than that of a regular fuel station. With so many cars parked up the charging might be a trickle meaning even more required real-estate. I hope I get to see one day, a practical battery that charges fast and can hold a lot more charge than the current technology gives us.

    You can't really fix them, once MDF has swelled up it's stuffed. Rip them out and replace with either pine or meranti, seal the bottoms, and make sure they are not buried in the screed / tiles. This was a common way it was done in the past because the chippy was finished before the tilers started (project homes pretty much done like this). Best way is to put the timbers on top of the tiles, after they are grouted. Leave the jamb's off the floor about 2mm, and fill the gap with a...

    METRIX replied to a thread Has Kaboodle improved in Kitchens
    As with most DIY warriors, you are overthinking it, building carcasses be it standard or custom sized is entry level carpentry. Like anything, once you start to overthink it you just complicate a simple task and turn a job that should take you a week, into one that drags out for six months (I have seen this happen on many occasions) and costs four times as much. Materials Birch ply is not the most economical alternative to build carcasses from at the moment, not that it ever was an...
