I am not a mason, but do repairs on my own bath stone, I have had advise from a freind who is a mason, and you should only use "Bath stone pre-mix" which costs about £25-£30 per bag(20-25kg), I gotmine from Travis perkins. Alternatively, you can grind up a peice of bath stone, seive it so it is fine, then make a 4:1:1 with bathstone dust:lime:white cement. This will make a mortar that will not be rejected by the stone, and can be worked like normal mortar and also sanded if you catch it at the right moment. Be sure tho, it is a real art form to make it look really good!

1 part lime,1part lime and 2 parts kiln dry sand.. No cement. If a small repair then chesil it back about 3-5mm Or bigger build up gradually.. Keep the stone moist to key into. And if the temp is warm,keep straying water,don't let it crack. If you do you've left it to long.build if proud. Then when cured,rub it down... Bm345building@me.com

I would use epoxy and color it with ground stone dust.

My wife was told by our Dr. that she had a 2cm gull stone how big is this compared to mm.


Hi Chris:
There are 10 mm in 1 cm, so the stone is 20 mm.
I'm assuming this is in diameter which is the common way to refer to the size of spherical objects.
20 mm is about .3/4 of an inch, roughly the width of my thumbnail, so the stone would be about the size of a marble that would cover your (or my) thumbnail

How to Remove Adhesive and Ink with Green Chemicals


Adhesive & Ink Remover was engineered to remove: adhesives, glues, tar, water seal compounds, non-curing adhesive films, inks and grease. The green cleaning products and ingredients are safe for use on metals, plastic, stone, fabric and more. The formulation can also be applied to specialized surfaces, including vehicle exteriors and interiors, Plexiglas, marble and vinyl.

The new green cleaning products employ a microscopic technology to break the carbon bonds that hold inks and adhesives together. The resulting solution disperses in water for easy removal.

This formulation employs green cleaning products engineered from soy and plant ingredients that generate no hazardous fumes. On the institutional hazards rating diamond, the product produces zeros in all four quadrants, including health, reactivity and flammability. The bio-safe ingredients are documented to degrade in a matter of weeks, as described in evaluations by a noted testing laboratory.

Save even more money! I did this repair for under $20. Instead of replacing the...


This advice is for the Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet FRONT LOADER style washing machines. A lot of concerns have been raised about door bellows molding, mildewing, and/or ripping and needing replaced. A replacement bellow isn’t cheap (prices vary, but are around $75-80), so hopefully these helpful steps will eliminate the need to call a repair service and pay the additional labor charges. This is a repair of MODERATE difficulty. Just follow these steps:

1. Unplug the washer.
2. Remove the washer top panel by removing the three torx-type screws (or 7mm) where it attaches in the rear of the washer. The panel should slide back, and then lift off.
3. Remove the operator console by removing the dispenser and the scew(s) behind it. Take a putty knife and insert it under the console seam right above the door. If you push in slightly while pulling outwards the panel pops off. Use care not to pull or damage any of the wiring. You can leave the wires attached and simply lay the console across the top of the washer out of the way.
4. Locate the wire hoop retainer around the rubber door boot. It is located behind the rubber seam where it attaches to the door frame. Follow this hoop around to the bottom of the door opening and locate the wire tension spring. Gently pry this spring apart and pull the wire hoop from the groove. Pull the rubber boot from the frame and push it inside towards the wash tub. You will also have to remove the door boot from the fill tube on the left hand side of the door opening. There is a small wire clamp holding it in place.
5. Remove the three screws that hold the door latch assembly in place. This is on the right hand side of the door opening. You can leave the latch in place as long as you remove the screws and push it inside slightly to remove it from the front casing of the washer.
6. Remove the door by removing the screws holding the hinges in place. Use care to support the door hinges when loosening. They can bend. Set the door aside in a location where it will not get stepped on or broken.
7. Remove the lower kick panel under the door. There are 3 screws under the bottom edge holding it in place. Sometimes the panel can stick. A slight tap on either side will knock it free.
8. Remove the front washer casing by removing the four remaining screws that are holding it in place. There should be two at the top and two at the bottom. Set the front casing aside.
9. Remove the old door boot by locating the large clamp that attaches it to the wash tub. Loosen the 7mm nut and the boot will detach from the tub. Also remove the boot from the fill tube coming from the dispenser.
10. Install new door boot on the wash tub and install clamp. There should be instructions that come with the door boot with guide marks to ensure you align it correctly. Once you have the boot in place, tighten the clamp enough to where it is snug. DO NOT over-tighten or you may damage the tub and or clamp. In most cases the clamp will break.
11. Once you have the boot in place, re-install everything in the reverse order of how I explained to disassemble. Make sure you connect the door latch assembly BEFORE you re-install the outer portion of the door boot. Also, make sure you install the boot completely over the fill tube. There should be a ridge on the tube where to stop. Sometimes the tube is not inserted all way into the boot and water will leak behind it. The clamp is always difficult to get back in place. If you cannot get the clamp to go back over the tube, you can live without it. Some newer models do not have them installed. Just make sure it is a snug fit where the rubber boot fits ALL the way back to the plastic ridge on the tube.
12. When you get the point where you are ready to install the door boot back over the frame of the door opening ensure you fit it snugly all the way around the door. Beginning at the top of the door, start inserting the wire hoop back into the groove. Make sure to wire spring points towards the bottom. As you work your way around the door to the 4 and 8 o'clock positions, you will need to maintain some constant downward pressure while pulling the spring apart in order to snap it back into place. It would be advisable to use a second set of hands to hold the wire hoop in place while doing this as it has the tendency to want to come out of the groove.
13. Once the door boot is back in place, re-install the operator console and washer top.
14. At the operator console, select DRAIN SPIN, NO SPIN and press any button under OPTIONS 4 times (has to be the same button, though). This will place the washer in diagnostics mode. You should hear the door latch lock and "C00" will be displayed on the console. The washer will run through a series of tests filling the tub, tumbling, draining, and then a final spin. If you do not wish to wait for the test to complete you can press CANCEL at any time. The test checks out everything and takes about 15 minutes. Look for any leaks.

I hope you find these instructions helpful and good luck to you.

Car wind screen got a stone pitch, any chance to fix it ?


Yes Do an Internet search for "Chip" repair. Your comprehensive car insurance covers most of these type of repairs.

A plastic resin is put on the window, then either heated or chemically cured. Many times these repairs are done in Parking lots by Franchise owners.

    What is the solution to fixing small chips in my new granite countertop? The granite countertop was just installed a month ago and the company has not not responded to my letter about the chips in the...


    Try using super glue, the thinner the better the adhesion. Once it is dry hold a single edge razor blade (use extreme caution, razors by nature are very sharp) perpendicular to the surface of the stone and scrape the glue flush, changing blades regularly. Do not use the blade to cut, as it will dig in and pull glue and possibly stone out, as you have discovered. Just take your time and scrape the glue until it is flush with the granite. If the spots are dull, you can use a little carnuba wax (automotive/hardware store) to shine it up. Some types of granite have more texture due to differences in the makeup of the stone which also gives the variety of color. I have filled entire countertops with this method, and it is tedious, but yields good results.
    Feel free to contact me with any questions. Brandon Wiese

    97 fxdl, difference between narrow/wide glide componants


    You need the complete front end including the wheel. The FXDWG is somewhat of an oddball in that a lot of parts fit only that bike. A lot of other parts will not fit a Wide Glide. This even applies to the exhaust system.

    Measure the diameter of your upper fork tubes, they're 39 mm tubes. The Wide Glide uses 41 mm tubes. The Wide Glide also uses a 21" front wheel.

    1. If installing a new rear quarter window glass, apply urethane glass primer to the same area that was prepped in the previous step. Allow 5 minutes to dry.
    1. Cut the urethane adhesive applicator tip to specification.
