    Yep - the poor sap being the 90 year old lady next door

    Yeah sparky would have been my pick. S bend installers are also S bend unblockers... Had a new HWS put in the other day. Called me 45 mins after they were due. "We are here waiting for you. We'll make a start ripping out the old one." "Um, but I'm home and you aren't here..." "Aren't you number 2?" "Nup." "Oh..."

    Haha - yep pretty much that, except without the protective gear. Did put safety glasses on, and was glad I did when a wad of paper caused a massive splashback. Sometimes I think being avtradie would have been good, but definitely not a plumber!! Cheers Roger

    Getting there! Tiler thought there weren't enough tiles and went home, but had miscounted. Builder came around and confirmed there were enough. Had mixed up floor and wall tiles. Toilet is in which makes life easier! Emptied and cleaned the chemical toilet - think I've earned a beer tonight...

    Oh I thought you meant the shower tent!
  6. New Build - Home Renovations - Gardens - Garages & Sheds.

    Haha that's the shower. Yeah I'll do that with the marble to make sure it is all good. Took your advice re the shower too - got hand shower plus rain shower. Found a swivelling arm for the rain shower too so the missus can push it across to one side if she wants. Actual toilet:

    Yep! Asbestos walls with tiles and towel rails falling off isn't the ideal bathroom experience. Screeding done on the bathroom floor today to get all the falls right for drainage. Current bathroom is actually pretty nice:

    Bath room in progress. Old one was 46 years old! Tiling starts today..
  9. The Cricket Thread

    How about now? Pity in some ways because it takes the sting out of the series a bit...

    They could, but they tend to collapse

    Not yet - current forecast is for rain until about 2024! Might have to wait until the new year.
  13. Haha stuff that. I'll stick with the way you guys did it.

    Needless to say my camping trip in the Snowys didn't go ahead. Khancoban is forecast for up to 170mm today!
  15. That was an interesting read. I did front hubs on the EL twice (they are integral with the disc) so you have to grease the bearings, assemble it all up on the spindle and adjust the outer nut to get the right tension. Am I reading this right that you basically just slap on a hub with the bearings pre-assembled and greased inside and then just tighten the dark out of the retaining nut? If so, sweet. Mine are probably 160k old so might do as preventative maintenance next time I've got the calipers off.
