Miscellaneous DIY Projects (or bits of jobs)

Post by PanBiker » 25 Apr 2020, 12:00

I thought I would start this thread for bits of jobs that don't fit into other major project slots like Kitchen Refurb and other bigger projects.

My offering today was completing the install of Sally's new tomato growing propagator that we have in the back yard. Our old one dropped in bits, (as they do) so we got another one from Aldi. I have to say that it is very good quality and a much better cover than the previous one which we bought from a garden centre. We had built the frame up the other week and it was waiting for me to secure it to the wall so it wont blow away. One fault with all of these small propagators is that there is no inbuilt system for securing it to a wall. To this end I made a couple of aluminium brackets yesterday, similar to an open P clip. Simple enough but OK as you have to secure the unit with the cover installed over the frame. The clamps basically grip the frame and cover and hold it tight to the wall. It only needed one at each side but it will stop it catching the wind which has happened in the past when the unit is empty. and no weight in the bottom to hold it down. Ready to rock now with a triple tomato plant grow bag. :smile:

Self powered wireless doorbell fitted, very impressed with the functionality. Hopefully it'll stand the test of time.
The transmitter (bell push) has it's own 'generator' that creates the signal to activate the two receivers, these are plugged into a standard 230v socket at either end of the house.
