HOW TO TIDY UP THAT UNSIGHTLY SILICONE SEAL AROUND YOUR SHOWER BASE OR ANY SILICONE SEAL ON CONNECTING EDGING.

1. BUY A 1/2" TO 1" WIDE WHITE PLASTIC FLAT STRIP ABOUT 2 MM OR 1/8" OR LESS THICK. OR BUY ANY PLASTIC STRIP AND CUT DOWN TO SIZE AS ABOVE.
AT THE BASE OF MY SHOWER WHERE THE BASE UNIT CONNECTS TO THE TILES THERE WAS A UNSIGHTLY SILICONE SEAL.
I GOT A LENGTH OF WALL CABLE CAPPING /WHITE AND CUT IT INTO 1" WIDE FLAT STRIPS OR YOU CAN PURCHASE FLAT PLASTIC STRIPS NORMALLY A COUPLE OF METRES LONG FROM YOUR LOCAL DO IT ALL SUPPLIER , CLEAN AND DRY OLD SEAL USING A HAIR DRYER ,
CUT ONE LENGTH AT A TIME, REMEMBERING TO ANGLE CONNECTING CORNERS, USE FRESH SILICONE TO RUN ALONG WHERE OLD SILICONE IS
PLENTY TO FILL IN GAP , NOW FIT PLASTIC STRIP AT A ANGLE ACROSS TILE AN BASE UNIT ,PUSH IN UNTIL SILICONE STARTS TO SEEP OUT OF EDGES, WIPE WITH A WET CLOTH TO REMOVE ANY SILICONE,
SO YOU END UP WITH A EASY TO CLEAN PLASTIC SEAL ANGLED AS /l AROUND BASE OF SHOWER.
WITH NO SILICONE IN SITE TO DISCOLOR. ALSO WORK TOPS TO TILES CUT SMALL STRIPS SAY 3/8" TO 1/2" WIDE ANY COLOUR. FIT AS ABOVE.

I have a large gap to seal btwn tile and tub. Any suggestions?


how big is large ?
if it is over 1/2" but under 1" cut a slice of tile to fill the gap
if under 1/2 inch use a silicon sealer ( no more gaps) to fill the space
to get a smooth finish on the sealer use your finger --wet it in water or suitable applicator that is wet with water
once the desired finish is achieved , let it dry and it becomes water resistant

no battery for simmons scope model no. 1057


This scope will use a 1.5 volt button battery that is 4.2 mm thick and from 11 to 16 mm wide. A thin rubber washer can be used with a V386 battery or a LR43. Both are 11.6 mm by 4.2. My scope came with a thin 16x12 mm ring made of plastic so that the battery would be held firmly into the center position.
After a close inspection, it is possible that a similar sized battery that is 3.6mm thick/thin might work also, but would have a shorter life due to less capacity.

I hope this is helpful. If not, I would be happy for you to sell me your scope for another gun of mine! :-)

calibration strip location


I got my answer from a very helpful scanner expert from a posting on the newsgroup comp.periphs.scanners. The plastic piece went near the end of the bezel that holds the glass above the starting position for the scanning run. Once I knew the idea, locating where it went was easy because of small indentations in the bezel the shape and size of the plastic piece. Thanks.
