Hello I've not posted on here in a long while. I often log in to view my PMs and have a browse. I feel compelled to join in though. For a question about wheel balancing, Yes I'd normally go to kwik fit, ATS, etc. for a bit of balancing. There are more specialist balancers who'd check not only dynami...

Hi Lemonade, I feel a bit daft asking this and I think I might know the answer but please put me straight if not. We have a tv platform on the wall (like you see in hotel rooms) and we can't get it off. We got it stripped down as far as the 'arm' but the three screws holding it to the wall will jus...

Hello to Lemonade, or anyone who can help me. I've got an old cast iron radiator, and I've seen these traditional brass radiator valves which I want to use on it, but on that site they show two sizes; 3/4 " BSP valves and 1/2 " BSP valves. I've really got no idea what size to order; I measure the w...

Hi Lemonade, Don't know if you are still on the forum but I am in desperate need of advice. I've recently moved to a new flat and stupidly unplugged my old fridge freezer and moved it out of the way in the hall while waiting for the council to come to collect it. What I didn't realize is that a lit...

A few last words

Hello All I just want to wish all of you the very best for 2007. I've decided not to participate within the Sydenham Forum from 2007. I've so many other things happening and not enough time as I'd like to devote to the forum. I must say it's been a pleasure helping you and really great meeting some ...

Re: Need help wiring mains cables

Hiya Lemonade Wondering if you can help me sort out a real pain of a problem. I’m no electrician and need some guidance. I was given a new ceiling lamp. When I disconnected the wires from the old lamp I noticed that it was connected to two mains cables through a loop connector of some sort. I didn’...

Re: xmas lights

Hey Lemonade, ...Can I check house bulbs the same way if I use longer wires to connect the poles or would I get an electric shock doing so? I have a large box of spare house bulbs under the stairs and I wonder if they are working. Hello Lisa No sorry you can't test household bulbs in the same way. ...

Fairy Lights

Hello Sarahc In that case I can only think of 2 other possible causes. Maybe you have a loose connection where the wires join the bulb holder or a wire is broken somewhere. Using a continuity checker you could find the fault easily but I'm guessing you wouldn't have one. Check the cable restraint at...

Fairy Lights

Hello Sarahc Are your lights 240 volt mains operated or do you use them with a transformer? Check the 3 pin plug. Make sure all the connections are tight and fit an new fuse just in case the existing one is duff. Check all bulbs are fully tightened into their individual fittings. Re-check each bulb ...

(Ooh a Message, I haven't had any for ages!)

Hello Lisa I'm assuming if they're as old as you've mentioned, they'd probably be mains operated and are wired directly to a 3 pin plug...and not used together with a low voltage mains transformer :?: (Please correct me if I'm wrong) Firstly check the mains plug. Make sure all the wires are intact a...

Dumplings & Loo!

Hello Annie I reckon you've made the right choice to consult a plumber. Make sure you ask for a plumber to give you an estimate before carrying out any work. Any such estimate is normally free and holds you to no obligation. When the plumber is inspecting the blockage, ask him (/her to be PC) if the...

Skimming

Hello Syd I didn't know it was called skimming but the same thing happened to me not so long ago. Though it was not with the HSBC but another bank. I had a couple of entries on my statement which at first I didn't notice. I went overdrawn by £600 and at first I thought perhaps somehow I overspent. B...
