    Working on my own drains.

    I think I'd probably patch with a new piece of pipe with a connector at each end rather than any rubber or jubilee clips. Don't know about regs tho'.

    Central heating noise

    Have you tried bleeding the highest radiator when the system's been off for a few hours? Or, even better, bleed every radiator when the system's been off. This gives the air time to rise to the bleed screws - which it can't do when the pump's running. remember you may then have to top the...

    pen blank drilling

    I think you might need some new drill bits, or sharpen the ones you have - including the threads, not just the tip.

    pen blank drilling

    Normally sticking is when the drill doesn't clear itself, and the sawdust builds up and jams it/cooks it. When you withhdraw the bit are all the cutting threads clean ?

    Debonding CA glue for pen blanks

    I've had wood split with the exothermic reaction when using CA to bond the tubes in. I've never had it happen with PU glue. (Apart from splits when turning obviously dodgy timber).

    Debonding CA glue for pen blanks

    Buying spare tubes will be cheaper than buying debonder. I don't know about re-using the blank, I just use the other half to make a duo style pen if there's an un-retrievable split.

    Smith and Rodger

    Having just had new windows fitted (triple glazed, argon filled, carbon fibre infills) I decided to finish the wood trims off with hard wax oil. I booked a day off work to do it and discovered, the day before that I'd only got the dregs of a tin left - duuuuh :oops: An on-line order to Smith...

    Router bit sets ?
