    Shed/workshop build.

    I have an unopened roll of Tyvek breathable membrane and a 3/4 remaining one if its of any use to you (or anyone else that wants to collect it).

    Draw Runners

    Thanks for the suggestions. I might change my design so that I can use side mount runners instead. For full extension they take all the weight in the right direction.

    Draw Runners

    Hi Can anyone recommend a full extension runner that fits underneath rather than to the side of a drawer ? Cheers

    Opinions: T-track inserts or DIY t-slots for router table?

    Crikey - can't believe how affordable all the stuff on that page is - https://www.fine-tools.com/otoro-t-tracks.html

    Motor car insurance.

    The real question is why does your utilities provider take 3 months to give you back the 800 quid they over "estimated" over a 12 month period. And this is after getting the ombudsman involved. The entire services industry is all about scamming you.

    LED Panels

    I've since had a LED driver fail after 30mins use :( There's a replacement in the post.

    LED Panels

    So I bought 6 1200x600 60W 4000k Daylight panels and made a simple frame to hold them up. I wasn't sure if I had enough or too many but I think it's just about perfect. Since taking these photos I've finished cabling it back to the house and had a sparky check it over so theres no extension...

    LED Panels

    Did you use a surface mounting kit or make your own ?

    LED Panels

    Does anyone have any experience with these very thin flat panel LED ceiling lights ? I've need some to light a 6m*5m space and any recommended solutions would be appreciated. Cheers

    There's also the flat rate VAT scheme but it may not suit your expenses/invoice ratio.

    Replacement Axminster bandsaw inserts.

    I have a RP BS350 and have designed and 3d printed some replacement inserts - https://cad.onshape.com/documents/30af7 ... ec02f6544e Printed with the top side on the print bed gives a great smooth finish -

    Workshop from scaffold boards..

    You can't call those things sheds. They use 1"x1" - that's basically trim. I thought they were bad whey I was looking for a new shed and was looking at the ones that were 1"x2". I halped a mate put one of these 1"x1" sheds in and it might as well have been made out of cardboard :O

    Stolen Tools

    Some Fords are stealable within seconds - without setting off alarms and rendering the immobilisers pointless. They put the ODB port within arms reach of the quarterlight window. All it takes is a small broken window, a reach in and plug in to the ODB port and the entire car or van can be...

    F clamps

    Ditto for these - you'd be lucky to get one clamp out of them.

    F clamps

    These look the same as the cheap ones from screwfix etc.. We've discussed these elsewhere. The handles snap far far too easily (I broke 2 in first use) - I'd avoid.

    Any roofing experts here? Can I please pick your brains....

    It is - and it's very nearly done ;) Just a plaster skim and SWA to run down to it. Oh and I need to source some thin light panels.

    Any roofing experts here? Can I please pick your brains....

    I used the rubber4roofs thickest option on a 6m*5m roof and 2 of us could barely lift it :o I had to fashion a slope and a trolley (with self applying brakes!) and pulled it up bit by bit. This picture tells only half the story - the slope was too steep for the rubber (I'd had no problem...

    A proportional content size allows the user to choose the line length by simply resizing their window (admittedly hard on a tablet). I'd be in favour of choice every time. I personally can scan a screen of text very quickly so I like to see as much of it as possible. It means I don't have to...

    Sorry to be leaving

    I haven't misquoted anything. I asked you a straightforward question - you are advocating that changing the current page margins to relative widths would be a mistake and quoting "industry standard design" as your argument. Whereas I never suggested implementing a specific margin size - just...
