  1. Today I am helping my friend move his boat from the Falkirk wheel to Auchinstarry marina. I thought it would be a great chance to show people the layout of the canal and the structures on the way so I am going to be posting tweets throughout the journey. If you would like to follow the journey and see what this section of the forth and clyde has in store please follow @canalskills Unfortunately I won't have a laptop and internet access to post in canal world. Lets go Boating
  2. Are you painting the base plate or just sides? And is there any reason you are choosing to use such an expensive product? Sorry just noticed your using epoxy
  3. I would be coming down from Scotland got family not to far away so would need to sort out the logistics. Can you give me a few more details of your plans
  4. Hi All, Any idea how long it might take to cut a 6" hole in 4mm steel with a jig saw?
  5. Someone had mentioned the wool but your way seems much better. Thank you very much for the advice. Now to cut a hole in the roof
  6. For the back of the stove I am putting a 30mm air gap then heat board then tiles. For the bottom I anm putting an air gap then heat board, then a cement board and tiling. I have purchased a brass collar for the internal roof lining and intend to cut back the insulation at least 3 inches from the hole and repack with something like fire proof natural wool (if I can source it.
  7. Thanks for that. I have been using the soliftec guide but It has still left me a bit unsure about the sealent and lagging on the joints. Just a bit nervous of getting it wrong.
  8. Hi all, Having had several problems with my heating I have decided to put in a multi fuel stove. All the stuff I think I need has now arrived but having never put in a stove I am at a bit of a loss with parts. Can anyone tell me the correct way to put together the flu kit and stove. Its really the joints that i'm not sure what to do with. The flu kit has chimney collar for the roof some lagging sealent reducer and flu I think my question really is which bits do I put the sealent on and what has the lagging ???? Sorry if this is a basic question but I only want to do it once
  9. Hi I am looking for a 12 volt TV. Can anyone advise on how good they are, what bands best, where to get a good price and generally any thing else you think I could do with knowing. I have never had a 12 volt TV so all advice appreciated
  10. Hi All, I have an RR150 Shoreline 12v Fridge about 7 years old. About 6 months ago the ice box stopped keeping anything frozen and is building up ice on the side of the door opening (so i'm thinking door seal) unfortunatly as of a couple of days ago the fridge section is no longer keeping cool at 2/3 and I have had to turn it to 4 and it still seems it should be cooler. Any thoughts?
