How exactly do you want to use these screws ? Would wooden batons work?


* well known French DIY store

David, i rarely go to leroy merlin. I'm usually buying from pro suppliers! But more than 450mm, is hard to get!

Do you understand how a sarking work? Basically you make a box of the thickness of your insulation, at the outside edge of the walls, on the existing roof. Then fill that with the required thickness of rigid insulation, then lay some battens 8x4cm for example, above the insulation, at the vertical of the rafters, which are completely underneath the whole complex. Then link the batten and the rafter with a very long screw. Which compresses the insulation a bit, and serves as a support for the roof slats, holding either the tiles or in my case, "tole bac"

One screw every meter or so. The closest i am, to a good price, now, is 600€ for 400 screws. Still a bit dear!

Good luck.

I have seen this one.

Hi everybody!

Well, getting out of the rocket stoves and RMH forums, for a question.

I searched the internet a bit on the subject. And i didn't find much.

Does a direct electrolysis hydrogen cooker exist.

I mean, solar panels  wires, going directly in water may be with a switch, then the H² and O is directed directly to the burner?

I don't fully understand what instantaneous power is required to boil tatters for example. But with 4 or 5 m² of panel, it might be possible?

Any idea?

Thanks a lot.

These toxins which include nasties like dioxins come down with the rain, polluting the soil, lakes, streams and oceans. The fact that people manufacture plastics is bad enough for the environment, but burning them too just pollutes even further. Please don't burn plastics.
