    king Size Mattress price

    Dont be talked into one you can't/don't need to turn over... as you're paying the same for only half the filling/wadding (only on one side). This is an excellent start for all things mattresses... Handmade Mattresses | John Ryan By Design - UK Bed Retailer

    5minute epoxy

    Having worked with epoxy's for circa 30yrs i'd be more concerned with the side effects of the chippings and dust that will come from the epoxy glue while turning. Glove up and air respirator.....ANY sign of swelling or puffiness around your eyes STOP AND DO NOT CONTINUE. I've worked with guys...

    Wildlife trail cameras

    Hi all, looking to get a wildlife trail camera to record to goings on of the hedgehogs in our garden. We've borrowed an 'Apeman H45' from one of our neighbours. Fairly easy to use and setup, but the images are a bit umm lacking(?) certainly not the megapixel or HD clarity that i was expecting...

    Solar panels: do they save money?

    Yes it does. As does the massive subsidies paid to the wind energy companies that started over 30 years ago when wind energy was just a whim in the minds of beardy weirdy's. Look where we are now.... When we moved into our current home (20ish yrs ago) there was a scheme at the time to go and...

    Solar panels: do they save money?

    We've had our 3.6kW system, 14 panels, running since Nov 2012. Added a Solar iBoost to heat the hot water tank 4yrs ago. And last summer i changed my car to an ev and had a Zappi installed. House/roof faces ESE so we get the early clear blue morning skies. The initial system paid for itself (if...

    Off my nut

    hmmmm.... having read and reread (several times) your initial posting, are you sure its toothache.? The reason i say this is because we have a friend who's also been totally 'floored' by excruciating pain the same as you're describing. Only difference is... she takes care of her dental hygiene...

    Wrist watch recommendations

    My first watch was a Seiko and ever since then i feel i'm almost 'wedded' to the brand. Don't know why, just love them. If money were no object i'd love a Credor. Plain. Basic. Does the job. But in ohhh so much style. I treated myself to an Apple iwatch last March. Splashed out and got the black...

    Yeah similar vein... ordered a Makita cordless mower via Toolstation's ebay website as there was a 15% off deal. Clearly advertised on the selling page, it even said "save 15% today" Went through the whole process of put it in basket/go to pay etc only to be told 'sorry that offer has expired'...

    Different voltages in rechargeable batteries

    I'm looking at getting some cordless garden tools and slightly confabulated by all the different voltages available. I understand that the Amp Hour of the battery is the 'running time' of the tool... X no. Ah = number of working mins etc.? (depending on tool of course) But all the different...

    Crazy world

    For the average home user HP Instant Ink is the way to go. We bought an HP OfficeJet 4658 (print/scan/copy) about 6yrs ago from Currys, seem to recall it cost £59.99. It came with a £50 cash back from Currys in the form of an Instant Ink subscription. Plus the model we bought also came with 9...
