Question about Garden

1 Answer

OK, it's not a tools and hardware Q but if you know about tools and hardware you probably know the answer. Can someone give me a method of fitting a uPVC door which is slightly too short or too narrow after removing the old wooden frame as uPVC doors come with integral frames. A link to a really good guide on the internet will get you the full thumbs up too. Thank you for your help cause it's not even my door it's my mums and we can't afford to have a fitter or even buy a door made to exactly the right measurements! It must look good and the masonry it is attaching to is not rendered. I might render it, since the paint is looking a bit tacky now anyway so your solution can including some rendering.

Hello. Yes, it is always possible to build in the existing door opening so that it will accept the smaller size uPVC door. I like to bring each side in by the same amount and then bring down the top, leaving the bottom as is. This will give you a uniform look. In otherwords it will look like it is supposed to.

If you can not find trim boards of the correct thickness to do this in stock, find a lumber yard than has the machine necessary to reduce the thickness of the boards for you [ a thickness planer]. Use finish nails to attach this "inner frame", in fact I recommend that you construct the inner frame of the three pieces and install it as a unit. Once you have done that you can install the uPVC door in the conventional manner. J.

We have had a power cut and now phones are not giving us a dialling tone and when someone calls us they get one ring and then it goes to an answering machine any ideas?


Try using a different phone, if your phones are plugged in they might have got damaged from the power spike. Your answering machine is probably still ok.

Easyshare camera has a lens error on it and it won't do anything, any suggestions?


Good batteries? Yes? OK try this canon/Sony fix

OK you are probably going to think I am loony giving you this advise But No I am completely sane!

Get a can of compressed air OR acces to a compressor at your local garage Get them to fit the triggered air blower tool to it.

Blow around the lens in all the extension joins the firmly slap it in the palm of you hand with the side of the camera making contact with you palm. Do the procedure two or 3 times and inbetween the slaps turn it on to activate the lens mechanism. I have now fixed about 80 of these cameras with this method. I obtained the fix from Sony who charge $90 to do exactly the same. Keep at it as it will eventually work. One tip, make sure the battery is charged before you do this.

Question about c,c++


Well, C and C++ as you know are very powerful language....
C being middle level language gives you complete power to do anything with the hardware with less pain as compared to assembly...

C++, has all the features that C provides and in addition, has features of Object Orientation, where it gives the power of Data Hiding, Inheritance, Polymerphism, etc...

These days, C++ is extensively used for Application programming where there is hardware interaction

Example, CAD tools, where the graphics is very heavy and it has to be used effectively else there will be flickering effect in the software....
Another example will be game programming, where again the graphics used is very heavy...

About learning, take a book and start off, and you can reach me for any queries...

Mixer tap on the kitchen sink


Hi gt_elijah.

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

You want to know if there any way to tighten a faucet on a kitchen sink?

Yes! All faucets have to be secure, but there are as many diferent methods as there are diferent manufacturers. If you are unfamiliar with the diferent methods then you might not recognize the screw, nut, bolt or fitting when you look at it. Also, for many, a special tool is required. It might be wise to have someone local look at it.
Feel free contact me again!
