I fitted a ring pro doorbell the other day and the hole to feed the wire through behind the doorbell is absolutely massive! The wire is only speaker cable size. I want to find an effective way of filling the hole up so I don't get draught/insects coming through as the gaping hole goes through the external wall. Any suggestions of the most effective way of filling it? So far I've stuffed rolled up paper inside (lol) (lol)


ordered last pack at local. Hopefully will be available to be collected tomorrow. Nice for DIY jobs


Good, if it's as good as polyfilla


Got the last 2 from my local. Didn't realise how big the bag will be otherwise I'd have bought just the one! I haven't got that many holes in the walls to fill (lol)

No worries. Its more of a dig at the people who run this site thinking that everyone is only interested in gaming and taking away what used to be a decent menu of categories. All of the menu categories are totally mixed up now with the ability to place any deal in every category. I used to spend a long time on here going through computing, electronics, home, etc and have bought many items through this site. Now I don't bother anywhere near as much as I just get bored scanning through loads of items in the electronics section that are of no interest.

Yeah of course cooling helps, that's not what I meant. I mean that under the same conditions, cooling or otherwise, Dormer bits are way better than these.

Good price, but if any one doing white gloss painting try Screwfix no nonsense water based white gloss for £11.99 for 2.5lts, just brush on then use a small foam roller to lay off. Virtually no drips and no yellowing either and easy to clean brushes etc. Negatives are not as glossy as spirit based and not as durable, but once used have never gone back to smelly messy oil based .

I get substantially better if I stay in China for a few months; less wild yeast floating around; with living costs in SWMBOs home city being around £150 per month (for all 3 of us), any chance the NHS could give me a couple of years worth on prescription?? It would be cheaper than the medicine!!!


Gardening is now prescribed on the NHS, it doesn't have to involve heavy digging. You can grow succulents, cacti, and small stuff in small containers. Nature is wonderful, and is invariably much better than the crap we humans produce. (y)


Its OK, if you cant laugh at major illness,, there is nothing left but depression. With my blood counts at around 8% of normal, so my blood doesnt clot properly - at least I dont have to worry about DVTs on longhaul flights!!! And getting out of gardening is just soooo easy ( I hate gardening). I am feeling refreshed and ready for another 2-3 hours before I am whacked out again. EDIT Okay, make that "another hour", but then I was doing some light physical activities - cleaning my computer room out ready for a reorganise of the layout.

£32 in Silverlink - North Shields


Not for very long, the paint is thin and will come off in the bed area where it is used. Uncovered it will rust quickly. Perhaps three years before it goes through at the point where it bolts through. A coat of better paint will preserve it...or cover it up.


Might be worth spending a few quid on one of these from Lidl/Aldi to cover/protect it.


Binning my old one after 10 years outside... Was tempted by the puncture free one for £40 but then realised you can buy the puncture free wheel for £11 so better to go with this one methinks. Thanks op

Ah they must have gone up recently as I bought five for £1 each only a couple of weeks ago when I replasteted my kitchen.


Wow need to read few times to get the full understanding (highfive)


I use a 2 bucket self watering growing method for my tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers and courgettes that I grow, If anyone's interested here's how i do it. I drill 3cm hole in the bottom center of bucket 1, I then push a strip of old bath towel or tea towel approx 30cm x 10cm long thru the 3cm hole in bottom, I then tie a knot on the end that's on the inside of the bucket, this stops it falling from falling out, the cloth will absorb and draw water and feed up from bucket 2 keeping the soil in bucket 1 moist. Now plant the bucket up with your veg, On bucket 2 remove the handle keeping for later use, drill small 5mm hole through the side approx 15cm up from the bottom of bucket this is to let out excess water and tells you its full, then place a couple of half bricks in bottom or you can replace the handle so it drops on the inside of the bucket, this can be a bit fiddly, you may have to bend it (I do this) Now fill to just below the drilled side hole with feed/water then place your planted up bucket inside bucket 2 making sure its sat on the submerged bricks or bucket handle and that the cloth hanging out of the bottom of bucket is submerged in the feed and water reservoir. When you do need to water or feed you can over water via top bucket, or as i do down the gap between buckets ,I hope this makes some kind of sense lol, I've use this method and my buckets, for years, its saved me many hours of feeding and watering and has always yielded good crops, I LOVE BUCKETS


You can use any rubble sacks. Anything that is robust to hold the compost in will do the job. The Toolstation ones will do just fine. I would recommend those. With potatoes you have to keep topping up the compost so the rubble sacks are great as you can unfold them as you top up etc etc When your done growing potatoes you can use them for rubbish or to store stuff so it has many uses and never go to waste


Cheers - are these what you use? Just noticed £5.94 delivery. And just just found these Woven Rubble Sack 3ft x 2ft -[ 5 for £2.86 @ Toolstation

Get dealGet deal

Just finished a large extension and used Leyland Trade paint for all undercoat, gloss and ceilings - basically everything that is white. However having read up on these paints, I used the vinyl version of the emulsion, not the one in this deal. It's more expensive but has been brilliant and should be more durable. For the bare plaster I just did a 50:50 mix with water first.


Always pva fresh plaster before paint


You should use pva in order to reduce soaking in, in order for the paint to stick well to the surface (without premature drying caused by brick sucking it in) it will hold a lot better with pva


What’s best option for painting on fresh plaster? Pva base or watered down version of this

haven't seen in a while such display of ignorance concealed by a thick layer of arrogance. impact drivers are just not meant to drill holes, don't know what you considera "precise"? maybe drilling a pilot hole on drywall to hang a picture? the impact on them is along the axis, so it doesn't work as the hammer function in a combi drill, and worse, it will destroy the tip of a sharp wood bit or spade with that impact. you can also drive screws with a hammer, why "faffing" with a driver, and if you drive larger screws...you need a bigger hammer


This is a great price for an excellent drill. I bought this about a year ago and its been a pleasure to use.


So you'd drill for a 7mm plug with an SDS? It's impossible to drill a perfectly round hole with an impact driver due to the nature of how it works. It may well be ok for a lot of applications but trust me, 20 years of being a joiner I can tell you you'd get laughed off site for using an impact driver for drilling. That said, if someone is more comfortable doing that then it's each to their own.


You couldn't be more wrong. I've drilled 100s of 'precise' holes with an impact with a chuck fitted, swapped for a bit and screwed, seconds, done. No faffing with a combi. And if you're drilling with any more than 1/4", you should be using SDS.


Each to their own but I have to disagree. If you're drilling precise holes or anything greater than 1/4 inch then you definitely don't want to be drilling with an impact driver. Afterall, that's not what they're designed for. You'd also be very limited with the type of drill bits you can use. A combi is better as a screw driver than an impact is as a drill.
