  1. My back is only going to get worse. Old war wound dontcha know. 😣 No, not the Boer war either. So , while framing out the wet room I casually mentioned that I was building in strong points for a couple of grab handles. SWMBO: "Well I don't want the place looking like a steam room for geriatrics" How on earth do I duck and dive round this one? Recessed handles? Hefty towel rails? Help!
  2. OK : dread to think what a Tiger Bay Screwdriver might be then 😜
  3. Naaah lads, that's a Birmingham Screwdriver innit?
  4. She's too busy keeping me in expensive tools and spares for my digger. Top lass!
  5. With the prices Bosch charge for filters.... No brainer
  6. Thanks J. I found this video by Peter Millard and on his recommendation I'm thinking the Intelliplug might do the trick?
  7. Thanks. I know what to search for now. An auto-switch box. There seems to be a dearth of them for sale currently (geddit?) On the DIY front - I jus' lurv your optimism man. My name's not @Onoff or @JSHarris - or even @Construction Channel
  8. switches my vacuum cleaner on when I start my saw? Whats the name of the type of switch that you can plug into the mains which allows you to start (say) your crosscut saw and automatically switches your vacuum cleaner on? I have a Bosch vac with that type of switch integrated tof it : you plug the vac into the mains, but plug the crosscut saw into the vacuum. Switch the saw on, and the vac starts - switch it off and there's a slight delay while the vacuum 'clears ' the hose of dust. That (double?) switch on my vacuum has failed. I understand there's a device you can plug into a mains socket that does the same. Whats it called?
  9. Have a think about integrating the vacuum cleaner with the tools that will be used around the build. And insist that trades use and integrated vacuum cleaner with their tools when their work is likely to create dust. So, the hose diameter - or the availability of an appropriate adapter - between tool and vacuum cleaner is more important to you than for many. Your first guess of my choice is likely to be correct.
  10. @MikeSharp01, you'll be able to advise in more detail on Saturday maybe? The promo videos seem a bit 'optimistic' perhaps? @Construction Channel, for the life of me I can't remember 9, 11, 18, 22 - I am soooo knackered
  11. I'm framing out our wetroom at the moment. We'd like to fit AB Multipanel Wall board. We've got a fair bit of of thinnish OSB3 ply 'spare' . Any reason why I can't use that as backing for the wallboard? It'd be good to use it up.....
  12. Green oaks without cracks, I'd be wondering why not ...
  13. Evidence please. The BBC and Guardian can be (and regularly are) held to account for what they publish.
  14. I do both and take a less pessimistic view than the one in the OP. It's entirely understandable if BH members feel jangled by the current processes. We are all trying to do quite difficult things - build something - and then without warning along comes this once in a century bun fight. We could all do with a rest.
