    Hello from southern Scotland

    Welcome @Square Feet should I assume you are old school and prefer imperial to metric๐Ÿ˜‰ Had the chat last night with my 18 year old about the difference and she was sooo dismissive of imperial having never been taught any of it. At 51 I can do both...and yes that is a boast๐Ÿ˜€

    4G 'light' pipe wanted - how to get 4G inside?

    https://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/GSM-900MHz-LCD-Mobile-Cell-Phone-2G-Signal-Booster-Amplifier-EU-Plug/292592241021?hash=item441fdb497d:g:A2oAAOSwwq1axJw7 If you do make sure it's the correct frequency...look at the item description in this link for a list of UK providers and the frequency they use.

    Chimney Question

    Is that not called a register plate. In my basic reading, researching for a brick chimney for a timber hut, the register plate is often bespoke and made for each application. As far as I understood, this makes up the horizontal plate which provides a fireproof barrier above the stove AND takes the weight of the structure above. They are normally made of thick steel with a hole cut to accept the stove flue. I guess being (expletive deleted) off thick steel, it's no problem to mount any type of chimney liner on top. No expert, and, not sure I understand but my tuppence worth if it helps๐Ÿ˜€

    Damn, damn, damn: I have just realised

    Bottle jack would move it too as long as it's got something to push against...you might not have enough room to swing a sledgehammer as per @PeterW suggestions
