Re: :: The official TOOLS thread ::

I'm not sure of your location but a few years ago, I used Kanson Engineering in Couva/Pt. Lisas to machine out a sheared bolt in a patio rocking chair. I also used them to machine a broom handle male threaded connection to use on a bull float back in 2016. On both occasions, they did good work. They...

Re: Building a house in Trinidad

That's what I have. The second one is plumbed separately as it came with a valve and trim.

The first one is where it's TEEd from the fill line.

Re: Building a house in Trinidad

I for one don't use it, but it is good when you cleaning the toilet and need to get rid of stubborn stains and rinse out the toilet brush. My wife however uses it and uses it on the kids. And no problems there, except that the water could be cold, but I guess that'll be the case with an integrated b...

I'm doubtful. I think they are expecting a peak, hence the reason why we are in restrictions for two 14 day periods, totalling 28 days in the first instance. This may be in anticipation of spread during the election campaign and day of voting. The country went into the 28 day restrictions 5 days aft...

Re: Building a house in Trinidad

I believe I saw Kohler at Mirror Mirror a year or so ago. Why not install a shut off spray and hang it next to the toilet? You can TEE into the water line that fills the toilet tank and put a separate angle lock off valve. Much cheaper and just as effective as a bidet/bidet toilet. Y'all ever saw bi...

Re: Building a house in Trinidad

With a good set of engineered plans and a good builder with four or five men in the crew, you could take on that project yourself and save on contractor markup. You can also open a credit line with a hardware. Usually if you are a new customer, once you buy the first batch of material and show that ...

This was discussed somewhere earlier in this thread. Short answer is no. Foundation rebar should be 5/8" corrugated high tensile steel for any augered piles, mats and ground beams. 3/8" would be used for stirrups. Good Day Everyone, Can i use 3/8 steel rods to create cage for a foundation?

Re: CoVID Mamaguey
