  • GfK: Fecking hate folk who keep banging on about all the shit they've bought with their dole money. >:|

  • Dabz: Oh, and that doesnt include the fire stopping as well... Hordes and hordes of that to do!
    Today at 07:30:37 AM
  • Dabz: Its only a few fusible links, so, noone would take them on really, I have got my fire damper certs for testing them, and to be fair, it wont take much replacing... And I dont want to hand that over, because I could end up with another 39 buildings to do after this one! :)
    Today at 07:29:28 AM
  • dawlane: When it comes to specialist items etc. It's best to sub that type of job out to those that specialise in that field, as they would have the contacts to get the parts made.
    Today at 07:07:30 AM
  • Dabz: Well this is the thing, the consultant wants them refurbinI dont think the fire consultant would be keen on that if I'm honest, he wanted them to be as good as new... This is why when I contacted the manufacturer my heart sank when they said they dont make them anymore. I knew I was pissing against the wind somewhat, anyway, I have tried, thats all I can do... Best start making a price up to replace them, because that is where its heading!

  • dawlane: That's the thing with proprietary. You are bound to the manufacturer. You can get the solder, but you would be buying something like 100Kg rolls of the stuff. Depending on the failure and the type of damper. I would see if there was enough solder left on the link to reflux and hit it with a hot air gun.
    Today at 06:42:20 AM
  • Dabz: Like out else, typical, a bit of a shit, but as long as I can say I've tried... would hate for the consultant to just go on google and stumble on some or even find the solder!!!
    January 25, 2021, 10:47:15 PM
  • Dabz: I've tried everywhere, even emailed online stores, the problem with them is they have funny ends that go into clips on both sides, obviously originally a proprietary fitting, which is great and no sod makes 'em
    January 25, 2021, 10:42:38 PM
  • dawlane: Dabz: |You never know. You may get lucky on Amazon or fleabay.
    January 25, 2021, 09:30:13 PM
  • dawlane: Dabz: Have you checked out
    January 25, 2021, 09:28:41 PM
  • Dabz: Anyway, if I cannot find none, it will go back to them and they'll have to decide the next move... which will obviously be new dampers, which is fine by me, more work!
    January 25, 2021, 09:20:20 PM
  • Dabz: The fire consultant that's looking after the job has agreed to it, as long it passes a pull test (By him), then he'll be signing it off... all I've got to sign for is that the shutter does come down... which I know it does as I had to get the buggers back up to retrieve the other half of the links
    January 25, 2021, 09:04:27 PM
  • dawlane: Dabz. Get the dampers replaced. You don't want to be signing your name to that. But you used to get that type of linking wire with gas meter mains inlet valves that pop at around 90c.

  • Dabz: lol@skegvegas :D
    January 25, 2021, 08:11:32 PM
  • GfK: Skegvegas is about a half hour away
    January 25, 2021, 08:10:59 PM
  • Dabz: Repair fusible links on some fire dampeners, you cannot get them from the manufacturer anymore, so, it's either repair them, or replace the whole dampener... And as you can imagine, the client is more keen on the cheapest option, which is, clean up the old links and restick them together!
    January 25, 2021, 08:10:18 PM
  • dawlane: Dabz: That low a melting point would be specialist gear. What's its application?
    January 25, 2021, 07:57:51 PM
  • dawlane: GFK Won't have far to go for a day trip to Skeggy then. Haven't been there for years.
    January 25, 2021, 07:44:26 PM
  • Steve Elliott: Is that Massachusetts?
    January 25, 2021, 07:42:43 PM
  • Dabz: Hey Mike, not to answer for Dave, but, he resides in Boston, UK... Dont think it will have a downtown, probably a Tescos! :)
    January 25, 2021, 07:35:14 PM
  • MikeHart: GFK: I love Boston, especially downtown. My wife is from Haverhill, NNE of Boston.
    January 25, 2021, 07:29:49 PM
  • Dabz: Just a quicken you lot... I'm after some fusible solder, low melting point gear, and when I say low, I mean, melting point of 72 degrees... I know nowt about solder, not being a lecky type person... But it isnt actually for anything electrical, mechanical setup... I've looked and looked and can only find gear around 130 degrees... Anyone got any ideas?
    January 25, 2021, 07:23:39 PM
  • Dabz: Ah, Boston, thats the one I was thinking! So your still down that neck of the woods!
    January 25, 2021, 06:18:19 PM
  • GfK: Nah we were only there for a year or so.  Live in South Lincs near Boston now.
    January 25, 2021, 06:10:52 PM
  • Dabz: I say hull, bit further down innit
    January 25, 2021, 03:26:31 PM
  • Dabz: You still next to the beach Dave over by hull?
    January 25, 2021, 03:25:11 PM
  • GfK: I used to live in Goldthorpe for 30 years, so moving to Donny was like, Dubai!
    January 25, 2021, 12:26:24 PM
  • dawlane: It's changed a lot. And not for the better either.
    January 25, 2021, 12:24:37 PM
  • GfK: I used to live in Donny about 20 years back.
    January 25, 2021, 12:22:12 PM
  • Dabz: Ah, right, I like going to the races down there... Again, never been for ages, good day out! :) Syntaxbomb Race Day FTW!!! ;) hehehe
