|Thread: Where can i buy 2mm pushrods 750mm long|
You can get carbon rod for linkages from lots of model shops in 1m lengths and some specialist suppliers 2m and even 3m lengths.
get the right threaded coupler glued on for joining your rod makes nice push rods see here for them and 1m lengths of rod from them too brc models
1.5 mm carbon rod in a sleeve much better than steel and lighter

don't forget that the pacer do laminating and glue versions which have additive added to make it stronger so can fill gaps etc
I am looking for a budget epoxy glue supplier for 5 min and 30 min, i have noticed that the prices really have gone up. ( please don't suggest poundland it is a recycled/remanufactured epoxy glue and not as strong, no does it bond as well compared to known makes like pacer etc

with such thin wire you have proberly burnt the flux away before it could do its work with a 40w iron

|Thread: The big question, WHEN|
The fact that they have higher death rate proberly does reflect on leaderships control of the situation , saying what one want's to hear does not deal with the situations at hand, even though the words might make us feel better for that moment.

|Thread: New boiler installation|
Find out what cleaner your plumber has used, because some are stronger than others and have maximum time allowed before it must be flushed out. read the manufactures instructions and go by that . 3 months is far to long in my experience, get it power flushed and refilled with fresh central heating inhibitor/protector
|Thread: New gas engine break in|
language is an involving thing, one can't be offended by it can one and it's still a gas that explodes when ignited
