    Just search for "Bosch spare parts Bulgaria". One place that pops up is Spareka. There will be more, I'm sure.

    Near catastrophe with control panel failure on Hyundai Kona Car!

    We have a 2014 Renault Captur auto and have been having issues with the gearbox for a year or so. We've just been told that the gearbox ECU has failed and our local dealer (in France) doesn't know when (or even if) he can get another. We're looking at a bill of 1600€ if the part can be found...

    Bosch PBS 75 Belt sander

    If you can get the actual part number and Google it you might find Bosch dealers in Bulgaria or Romania pop up. I've had good luck getting older parts from them in the past. Failing that method just Google Bosch Bulgaria - if I remember rightly there are 2.

    Remember your first....

    One of my first jobs was in the factory of a famous Christmas cracker factory in Norwich. One of my duties was to take supplies (plastic toys, the "riddle papers" and the cracking part) from the stores to the shop floor which was pretty much staffed by "ladies". I was only about 15, but even...

    Safe disposal of an unusual nail gun

    A long time ago in Kings Lynn I was working on the site where we were building the bypass. Sitting in my portakabin a Hilti nail came through the wall behind me and kept on going past my head and through the wall in front. It had come from an office 2 doors down. Some of the junior engineers...

    Are EV's good value? Apparently not!

    We have mains pressure hot water with a solar heating system. They are quite common in France. It's just a tank with 2 coils in it. One for the glycol passing through the solar panel and one for a hot water bleed from the log burner/central heating. It also has an immersion heater for cloudy...

    Deadish Compressor

    They are usually so cheap to replace that I change them as a first step and then go further if that doesn't solve the problem.

    When my wife doesn't hear me clearly, it's because I'm "not speaking loudly/clearly enough". When I don't hear her, I'm not "listening properly".
