 Post subject: Removing skirting in bathroom which is fully tiled!
PostPosted: Mon Oct 23, 2017 12:53 am 
Hello wonder if anyone can help
I’m looking to replace my old laminate flooring with new laminate but I know the skirting board will have to be removed as it is old and tatty. My only concern is if it’s removed will there be a lot of damage to the tiling? Or will someone be able to remove it professionally and replace it without having to touch or crack the tiles? Thanks

 Post subject: Conduit for conveying steam from kettle (to steam wood)
PostPosted: Mon Oct 23, 2017 12:09 am 
I would like to steam wood for bending by conveying steam from my kettle on a gas stove to a PVC pipe containing the wood. What would be a suitable and cheap kind of hose to do this with? The kettle opening is ~30 mm. Thanks for any advice. Sorry if this subject is kind of shoehorned into this subforum it seemed the closest thing.

 Post subject: How would you deal with the architrave and skirting
PostPosted: Sun Oct 22, 2017 11:57 am 
I have a piece of architrave that's below the plaster by about 7mm and the skirting board sticks out past the architrave about 4mm so I plan on removing the architrave and fitting a piece of 4mm stripwood to bring it flush with the skirting then I was going to rebate the back of the architrave. The only thing I'm worried about will I have to move the door hinges and catch to make the ...

 Post subject: Best way to drill 30mm holes in thin plywood.
PostPosted: Thu Oct 19, 2017 9:49 pm 
Hi,

I need to drill few 30mm holes about 7mm distance from to each other in thin plywood.

I don't have access to a drill press.
How would you keep the drill straight and prevent it from moving?
How would you do a clean cut from both sides?
Are there any good drill guides for such task?

 Post subject: Cheap table saw vs mitre saw for DIY.
PostPosted: Sat Oct 14, 2017 3:09 pm 
Hi,

I'm planning to start DIY so a total beginner here.
I want to start building small boxes and cases and need accurate 90 and 45 angles.

Cheap mitre saw aren't very accurate from what I hear and cheap table saw are even worse.
However, a simple sled can make very accurate cross cuts on any table saw if the blade is straight.

Is my understanding correct? Can I make a cheap table saw accurate? ...

 Post subject: Work involved for new banister
PostPosted: Tue Oct 17, 2017 2:05 pm 
I've recently purchased my first property and getting together a list of things I'm looking to change.

I'd like to upgrade the staircase banister as it currently has dated looking plank/panel instead of a regular rail and spindle. Been looking up options but figured I should first check how much work is involved and an estimated cost, as it may have to be something I put off for a bit as it's not really an ...

 Post subject: Buy another board or fill mistake with wood filler?
PostPosted: Sun Oct 15, 2017 7:58 pm 
Hello,
being inexperienced & young, I eventually bought my first electronic jigsaw last year and my first project was to put a second workbench up in the shed.
I decided on 25mm plywood and while terrible at measurements, I somehow managed to get the table up and centered with a sprit level, but my incompetence..had got impatient and started getting sloppy with my measurements, which lead to this unpleasant void of a gap in the ...

 Post subject: Jigtech
PostPosted: Wed Oct 11, 2017 9:16 pm 
Hi guys, I've just had a joiner install some door handles using the Jigtech system but I didn't like the end result because the handles and the catch were all loose and moving about.
I have asked him to replace the handles with ordinary ones but I am confused about how he is going to repair the big hole he has made to fit the Jigtech handles.
Is it possible to repair the holes enough ...
