Oak Doors : renovate or replace ?

Trouble is your picture looks too good to be complaining about them. If you have dents and chips you can always fill and paint but I really hate the idea of painting decent oak doors. Also agree on the use of steel wool above I've obviously got away with it in the past but thats no guarantee. I a

Oak Doors : renovate or replace ?

Best remove them straight away and replace them with something wipe clean, by the sounds of it plastic would suit? Honestly replacing a decent door because its a bit grubby? All it needs is a clean down netrol https://www.lenehans.ie/owatrol-net-trol-wood-cleaner-restorer-1l.html. Probably best if

how to remove a screw with no threading

I bought some of these recently https://www.amazon.co.uk/Extractor-Aisxle-Stripped-Hardness-62-63hrc/dp/B07RPDSPNS/ screw extractors. They are far from perfect but will work if the screw isn't too tight. You need to spend more time than you think drilling the back of the screw before you use the ext

Using a chainsaw. Any recommended course?

So only 4 inches thick for a slide miter saw. But anything I can think of that would do that is in the €500 plus price bracket (305 mm blade). What I'd think of doing is putting the main angled cut in with a circular saw then instead of trying to match up the cut on the other side with the power sa

Using a chainsaw. Any recommended course?

Not sure if a big miter saw would do a real railway sleeper but would probably do the fake ones that are much cheaper and a little smaller. What thickness are these sleepers OP? A big miter saw could easily be more expensive than a chainsaw, however a chainsaw will never do work to the same accura

Using a chainsaw. Any recommended course?

Don't thing the OP wants to do curved cuts instead wants to cut the joint angle on railway sleepers so they fit together following a curve as near as possible. I also agree that some electric chain saws are more dangerous the petrol ones. You can apply a lot of torque very quickly with an electric

Boiler replaced but all pipework exposed

The plumbing isn't ideal in that the pipes could have had a couple of extra joints and been run further back in the cupboard but nothing really wrong with what you have (tank could have been turned through 90 degrees to the left). You could put a couple of shelves in there so one covers the bottom

Roller garage door keys

I think it should be OK when its the same person opening the door all the time but like the neighbor you give the key to someone to get something out of the garage and thats when the likelihood of it breaking goes right up. Another option would be to put a big lump of wood on the key with the same

Roller garage door keys

You aren't the only one OP neighbor has had to replace key when his father left it in the lock and opened the door. Only answer I can think of is a notice above the lock "Remove key before opening"
