no problem with stock in my local store
Heat added. Bought one as have needed one for ages. Thanks
iibdii
heat however not showing stock until paid
Stock in central warehouse, rather than individual stores by the look of things.
I've seen this happen with several items.
It's never been an issue though, simply means a short wait for it to arrive.

I find these water based treatments to be poor at long term wood protection. I prefer the oil based coatings but these are only available in dark or light brown and are not so environmentally friendly.
About £17 a tub on amazon. So only a saving of £3 per tub.

Weird...they seem to sell a lot of horse and pony grooming stuff at Screwfix oO
Whatever next??? Personal hygiene products at the PlumbCentre??? :(

I suffer from plum-hum and a get very funky aroma, so if anyone sees a deal on a suitable product I'd be very grateful.

Your name may explain that one X)


That's a kind of racism against tightwads, I think.

OOS everywhere.


have a look again now, apparently warehouse has 400 in stock now. well thats what they told the lady who called instore
went in to collect mine today, said order had been cancelled. however they called the warehouse and they said they had 400 in stock now so ordered another and collecting tomorrow. unsure why they cancelled orders and didn't just use the stock they have now
Had a call from my local store this morning telling me that their warehouse doesn't have any trimmers in stock and that I should ring head office to get my refund.. What kind of **** is that?! Why is it that I have to waste my time and money (if I didn't have all inclusive tariff) to call someone to get a refund because of their screw-up!

If you're handy with a Mitresaw, these look great, although the Aluminium section doors are better than the steel ones. We have 2 sets of steel ones (bought before they branched out into Aluminium) and an Aluminium set.
are they worth it?

Good price.

Shame I'm trying to slowly convert to hue bulbs otherwise these would be great.

Thanks, hoping these are going to be better than the ones that came installed with my kitchen, 7/10 have gone after 6 months oO

I've had eight of the non-dimmable version of these in use for six months with no failures.
Dimmable too. Good price
Need some gu10 for lights we just bought from ikea
Ikea bulbs £4 each and are 400 lumens, peak at 800 candela
These Philips are 355 lumens and peak at 900 candela
Both are 2700 kelvin
Which ones should I buy? I'm thinking Philips as almost half the price

This new forum layout is a bit hopeless so not sure if that will have worked.

to be honest I'm starting to wonder if I've got the space to try and pull a twin cable through the ceiling and then the upstairs floorboards. The bathroom is tiled though which makes it a bit of a nightmare

Edited By: Bossworld on Jun 25, 2017 11:50:
We had nest installed when we rewired our house. The engineer ran a three core & earth cable from the boiler to the heat link, and then three core+E to the location of our two nests. The boiler provides the 12V power and it was a two minute job to hardwire the nests in. Easy!
hainesy
You can use a 12v ceiling light driver to power it apparently and sit that in cavity run from a mains power supply.

Apparently (and I stress apparently) if it's hardwired via the 12v heatlink, this is also used for communication. Not sure if it would be smart enough to carry on communicating wirelessly (you'd hope so).

I'll post a photo up tomorrow, I do have just about enough room to spur a 12v driver from the mains socket but I'm not keen on burying it behind plaster

Bossworld
Heat added and good price for this. It still seems mad to me that unless you're willing to run wires straight from the heatlink to the thermostat, there's no realistic way of burying the power to the thermostat in the wall.
Just had the house rewired and as a compromise I've drilled a hole in the wall to run the micro usb into the back of the wall mount plate, and the USB cable can be buried in the chase that was created for the nearby mains socket. I've swapped the mains socket to be one of those with two usb ports on the front. At some point when we replaster, the wire will have to poke out of the wall, before plugging back into the front USB of the mains socket.
There doesn't seem to be anything on the market with a USB female socket on the back, and the only other alternative I could see was to bury some form of 12v transformer in the wall, which didn't seem a particularly smart idea.
Plenty of other folk across the net trying to work out a similar best approach to take :/
Haven't currently got a shelf mounted in a sensible place to use this stand instead, but that's probably the neatest solution for most folk unless you've got wiring for existing thermostat controls that you can re-use.

Might be better to bury a thin pipe in to the wall, then put a brushed face plate on the top and bottom.

The advantage of the nest method, is that you dont need to worry about batteries, which has alot of advantages for some. I installed a salus thermostat (uses batteries) for someone who needed a more portable thermostat with phone control and it was alot quicker to install than the nest.

Just picked mine up. Good quality and came with Duracell duralock batteries. Also has a 2 year guarantee. Bright enough for domestic use and should stand up to a few knocks. Very pleased for the price

I think 80 lumens is too low an output.


The same as what you get from most Chinese lights (despite them claiming g 1500lumens or whatever.)

Literally what everyone was thinking
At under a tenner, it is a bargain, B&Q want double that, but for similarly double the money Lidl/Aldi regularly do MUCH better tables. My original Lidl decorating table has been used as part of a charity stall every few weeks for 6 years; yes it is looking a BIT tatty (mainly because the boss got it rather wet), but other than a broken plastic carry handle, it is still going.
They also do a 3 pack of slightly smaller tables.

Don't buy if your not going to use in the next few months. Think the oldest i have used is about 4 months old. I also don't leave in my van in the summer heat or the winter cold. Fresh tape is always the best and never had any problem frog tape. Offer ends at midnight.

Remove from wall when paints still wet!
I find the regular green stuff works better.
I kept this in the shed and the moisture made it extra sticky, really sticky!!! No longer suitable for ANY surface. Keep it sealed.

You really need to educate your butler not to type things like that on your behalf; gold is GOLD - it is the colour that matters and not the material or construction!
Blast, I left my computer unnattended for 2 minutes while I powered my nose and he jumped on and wrote that drivel! - he's so easily impressed with shiney metals but he's a real pain in the behind when it comes to electrical conductivity in connectors....however in his defence it must be said that the actual quantity of gold in these connectors can be so tiny and insignificant that it's utterly pointless and counter productive. I have witnessed supposedly gold audio connectors going somewhat green and high resistance. Pesky blighters.

I sincerely hope that you took pity and only issued a gentle admonishing on this occasion rather than administer the severe beating you are so fond of and enjoy immensely. I feel compelled to make a case against your practice of suppressing the behaviour of going 'somewhat green' or indulging in 'high resistance' just to keep your housekeep in order.

Please consider this as a formal complaint and a strong response - never shall they search for YOUR deals ever again!

why buy gold plated connectors unless your sockets are also plated ? most tv's do not have plated sockets. corrosion occurs on the socket rather than the plug

Hey are these any different to the one I bought a couple weeks ago for £1.99? I'm not being sarcastic I genuinely want to know does it make a difference to the picture quality etc..

The way HDMI is set up means that any errors in the signal show up as obvious glitches so if the picture looks perfect then it is perfect, there's none of the subtle effects like snow that old connections suffered from.

So while HDMI cables are not all the same, if the one you have works for your setup then you won't see any benefit in replacing it.
