  1. Staining Bamboo

    personally I'd forget the woodstain and just varnish it.
  2. Did you mean 'accepted'? I doubt you intended the play on words but, maybe.......?
  3. His toms look pretty good, must be having some effect?
  4. Join blue plastic pipwork underground

    I'll agree if you could get a type similar to those supplied in the UK which have a nylon insert and ring joint. But I've never seen them here.
  5. Join blue plastic pipwork underground

    Screwed couplings underground and under concrete? Not me.
  6. We may not be alone

    We're both wrong. It's a quote from Bill Watterson, author of Calvin and Hobbes. Calvin: (as they are walking and come upon some trash in the woods) I was reading about how countless species are being pushed toward extinction by man's destruction of forests. Sometimes I think the surest sign that intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe is that none of it has tried to contact us. Source: Wikipedia p29 (08 Nov 89)

    Yep, see post #3. I was simply commenting on the use of screwed unions, not suggesting the OP use them.
  8. Rubber Trees

    Same here.

    Blue plastic screwed unions leak badly I've found. Steel ones are better but you need to make a PTFE seal for the flat mating surfaces. But buried screwed unions are a bad idea, steel ones will corrode in time.

    Thanks very much for the info, much appreciated.
  11. We may not be alone

    Yep, was it Arthur Dent?
  12. Red Bricks

    Just about anywhere in Thailand. It would help if you said where you live.
  13. Cool block

    Anyone got a recent price on cool blocks? Thanks.
