    I just watched a video of a machine that blew what looks like expanding foam into an old cast iron sewer pipe. It came out flexible at the other end but was hollow, and at some point became solid - Cured in place pipe (CIPP). Fascinating. Is this how it's done here? Our old terra cotta pipes are in deplorable condition, full of tree roots and we may need to have this done at some point soon. It's actually the only major maintenance work...

    Just a note on using jacks from my own small experience lifting a few bearers here. Depending on the ground you need a really good jack base. I now have several made from various bits and pieces. I bought the cheap Repco 4t/6T jacks and used them in pairs but bigger would have been much better

    I thought that industrial Glu-Lam beams used polyurethane glues, like the ones used for making end grain chopping blocks etc. You will need a lot of strong clamps, I had a builder cousin who had to make a glu-lam curved plywood balcony once and he mentioned hundreds of clamps being used.
