    Keep telling yourself that bro.
    I did. A lot.

    It probably didn't smell bad enough to be anything else. Having said that, if it was then tackling it gets me extra man points.

    I had a long shower afterwards. And I still didn't feel clean. It's possible that I never really will ever again.
    I had to unblock my mum's drain. Thankfully it wasn't the waste pipe, and was pretty much all fat and decaying meat. Was minging.

    @docrob sounds like you were stabbing shit to me.

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    My husband owns almost every tool it is possible to own for cutting stuff, drilling stuff, attaching stuff to other stuff, plumbing stuff in etc etc. He even (mostly) knows how to use them. At the moment in our downstairs shower room (because it's raining outside) he has set up a circular saw which he's using to cut bits of pine for boxing in pipes in the new bathroom he's installing and half the house is carpeted with sawdust. The other day he repaired our broken washing machine all by himself.

    However, I am manlier than my husband. And the reason is that I sharpen my pencils with a stanley knife, and he uses a girly pencil sharpener.

    :)
    You don't want to be boxing in with pine, especially in the bathroom. It'll start bending along the grain as it dries over time and in humid rooms it'll be doubly bendy. WPB ply wood is the stuff to use.

    Ah he is using plywood for the actual boxing, it's just some of the supporting structure bits that are pine (I think it's pine anyway). There's been a similar structure boxing in a soil pipe in there since about 1962 and it's still as straight as ever.

    Good stuff ;)

    Thick bits of noggin and the like are fine just the thin, wide boards I was giving you heads up on. As you were mr angeltreats!

    @elstoof That's mrs :)

    Aye we have plenty of thin (although not that thin) ply boards. And random bit of mdf, big thick lengths of pine for building stuff, every kind of nut/bold/screw/bracket you could ever want... The house looks like a lumber yard at the moment.

    I don't get involved. I just paint & hang wallpaper and try to avoid the donkey work.

    I have ten doors in my bedroom. Only three of them are functionally appropriate, the rest are piled up awaiting restoration.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    Clamps. A good set of clamps.

    I hope you're storing them in the approved manner, long side to the floor. If you've got them propped up vertically they're going to bend something chronic over time.

    Question.

    My friend is moving house next weekend. He is a first time house buyer but probably already owns some of the stuff in this thread. I want to give him something as a "welcome to grown up life" housewarming gift. I was thinking of getting him started with a jam jar partially full of random nails and screws, a long screw driver specifically for opening and stirring pots of paints, and... something else. Like a top quality set of something. Can't think what. No not a fleshlight or dildos, I'm sure they have plenty of things like that already. Maybe a spade? It will be his first garden ownership too. Ideas?

    I got his missus a really pretty silver bell that she can ring when she requires tea or wine

    Flashlight.

    If you can read this you really need to fiddle with your forum settings.

    It's amazing how adaptable Pavlov's dog has got after all these years.

    If you're getting him a spade, you might want to splash out on a stainless steel one - I believe the mud doesn't stick to them so much.
    Better than a spade though, would be a good pair of secaturs, or a pruning saw. Seems to me there's a lot of peeps out there that have no clue on pruning bushes (matron!) or hedges and they let parts of their garden get horribly overgrown.

    For indoors, a decent powerful drill (cabled not cordless) and some decent drill bits.

    Not as nice as I used to be

    He has a drill, and a torch. I'd get a machete but it probably wouldn't arrive in time.

    An outdoor propane gas burner for melting vats of tar, light metal forging and getting a 10 gallon homebrew boil under way.

    Alright Geezers?

    I have a problem with my toilet. It appears to want to become Niagara falls at random times and also flush at random times.

    I've tried cleaning the valve of the flush mechanism (the part that opens up to let the water go from the flush container into the actual bowl) and that hasn't helped the random flush problem.

    The only way to stop Niagara falls when it happens is to lift the water meter thing (the thing that determines if more water is needed in the flush water container). I have no idea why that get's stuck in the down position but if it happens when I'm not there, and it probably has, it'll cost me a fortune in water.

    Any idea what I should do apart from replace the entire flush system?

    Come and get it cumslingers!
