  2. In the 1970's I used to know a chemist who worked for one of the major paint companies. He said that DIY-store own brand paints, especially white emulsion, and the consumer range of brand-name paints, were built to a price. Thus the paint you buy this year will not necessarily have the same formulation as the stuff of the same name that you bought last year, as cheaper ingredients may have been used to maintain the selling price if raw ingredient prices have risen. Since then I have always used the trade range of paints.

  6. I have met the 2A and 5A ones on hire boats used for the 12V supply for things like the TV. On land, the 5A ones are often found used in hotel rooms for mains-voltage standard lamps which are controlled via wall switches.
  7. Once you have fixed the ventilation problem, ordinary cheap household bleach, diluted as per instructions, is far more effective than expensive mould-removing stuff for cleaning the mould off. When we visited a friend who had rented her house to someone while working abroad, we found she had a terrible mould problem.in a room which had been used to dry wet clothing without having a window open. She had spent pounds on the special stuff, none of which had worked. Scrubbing with cheap supermarket bleach and drying with a fan heater removed the mould, which has never returned after more than 4 years.

  13. Reversing the polarity of the type of motor where the magnetic field is generated by stator windings (constituting an electromagnet) rather than by a permanent magnet, reverses the direction of current flow in both the rotor windings and the stator windings, so the direction of rotation is not affected.
