    He could have easily cut the branches shown in the video with a manual Bahco or similar pull saw on a long pole. I have a collection of old aluminium swimming pool tool poles that put a blade 6m up...

    You have nothing to lose. You'll have to clear the paint off to get rid of the efflorescence anyway.

    The Husqvana T540 and maybe others can have an umbilical adapter so a large battery can be attached to a climber's harness.

    Your straight edge has had a few days to bend by now. Keep a check on it by snapping a chalk line on the joists.

    Not an electrician but an ordinary wall switch is not an isolation switch. It probably doesn't have the required gap when off and can't be locked. Normally the breaker is the isolator, other...

    I've seen different sources say both types are better for vibration. I have only ever had problems with bayonet fittings after the springs in the pins had lost temper through overheating. Bayonet...

    Is the 140mm dimension from bottom of waste or bath? Here there are 40mm Dux compact traps that are 147mm top of nut to bottom of trap bend. That would only need a divot in concrete floor. I have a...

    The only way of knowing that would be to sample other properties not affected by the waterblasting. Small cases like this always seem to blow up into a major remediation whereas a disaster that...

    If it is a B&S motor it is more likely to be a bolt with approx 30mm thread than a nut. If it is rusted in use a hex socket on an impact wrench before you round it off with 12 point tools. Normal...

    AFAIK a successful ant bait is one that doesn't kill too quickly so live ants take it back to the nest. As ants in the nest die the bodies are removed and dumped outside the nest not eaten.

    On my old Elu router the lower bearing almost seized. NZ Rimu is almost as bad as MDF for fine dust. From memory it was metal sheilded rather than sealed. I replaced it but the bearings aren't quite...

    At just over 5kg it's about the same weight as 185mm corded Makitas. What do your light weight tradies use?

    If the 22.2mm (7/8") ID disc is the 125mm one you mentioned earlier don't try to use it. Even if it did have the correct OD the grinder spins at 12,000rpm and the disc must be centred. I doubt that...

    What are the distances involved? Once the underlay is on the timber floor how much variation would you get over 3m? 3mm seems to be a limit.

    I thought I'd got away with a bit of bashing but some months later a lot of cracks showed up in the concrete outside the hole I'd cut.

    This is not limited to cheap Chinese tools. I have a Dewalt jigsaw with a broken blade holder. Black & Decker NZ are no help at all.

    Fall backwards off a deck at 1m and then try it again at various lower levels. I think you are kidding yourself that anything over a step height isn't dangerous. I'd put the effort into a barrier.

    The 092 chain is 0.050" type 91VG and the 290 is 0.043" type 90SG. Chances are that if you lift the chain up there will be a 91 on the drive tooth.
