Dave’s top tips Chalk Line For running dado rails through a hallway, or making a wallpaper border level round the room, an excellent tool to have in your kit is a chalk line. Simply mark a point on the wall at one end of the room by measuring from the ceiling or floor, and then do the same at the other. Hold the chalk line on both marks, lift it and let it go. "Ping". Also use this on horizontal surfaces to mark the floor when setting out for laying floor tiles or on the joists when laying floorboards. A chalk line can be used in almost any situation where a dead straight line is required. If you are on your own, then knock in a small tack or nail on your first mark and loop the end of the chalk line over it. Hold it tight on the second mark and ping. Regards Dave Stevens. If in doubt call me (see main advert for number) and I will do the investigating for you. Disclaimer. All advice above is given in goodwill with many years experience. We cannot guarantee however that your problems will be rectified so please, if in doubt call us before undertaking any works yourself.

Film Releases for November 2017 3rd November 2017 A Bad Mom’s Christmas Under-appreciated and overburdened moms Amy, Kiki and Carla rebel against the challenges and expectations of the Super Bowl for moms: Christmas. As if creating the perfect holiday for their families isn't hard enough, they'll have to do it while hosting and entertaining their own respective mothers when they come to visit. Murder on The Orient Express A lavish trip through Europe quickly unfolds into a race against time to solve a murder aboard a train. Everyone's a suspect when Detective Hercule Poirot arrives to interrogate all passengers and search for clues before the killer can strike again. 10th November 2017 Paddington 2 Paddington undertakes a number of odd jobs to afford a unique pop-up book from an antique book shop - a present for Aunt Lucy on her 100th birthday. But when the book is stolen, it's up to Paddington and the Browns to find the thief. 17th November 2017 Justice League Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman's (Henry Cavill) selfless act, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) enlists newfound ally Diana Prince to face an even greater threat. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to recruit a team to stand against this newly awakened enemy. Despite the formation of an unprecedented league of heroes -- Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and the Flash -- it may be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions. 24th November 2017 Daddy’s Home 2 Father and stepfather Dusty and Brad join forces to make Christmastime perfect for the children. Their newfound partnership soon gets put to the test when Dusty's old-school, macho dad and Brad's gentle father arrive to turn the holiday upside down.
