Epoxy Repair Kits

first_imgLast winter I helped my buddy, Connecticut remodeler and Fine Homebuilding author Chris Green, build and install a kitchen. We used biscuits to align the face frames on the cabinet boxes. Late one afternoon, I made a lazy move. Instead of repositioning a tall cabinet to cut a biscuit slot near the top of the box, I reached overhead with the joiner. The tool slipped and mangled the inside edge of the plywood. I was embarrassed, but Chris didn’t flinch. He walked to the other side of the room and came back with his West System epoxy kit.“For repairs that are more structural in nature,” Green said he prefers West System epoxy over other wood fillers. “It’s a super adhesive and gap filler all in one. The ability to adapt the viscosity from a maple-syrup consistency to mashed potatoes and everything in between is a huge advantage.” The one downside, he told me, is that it is slow drying.The thing is, you don’t have to make a mistake like I did, to find a use good use for an epoxy repair kit. Where these products really shine is on exterior repairs, often the result of poor flashing and water management details, the kind of thing green builders are often called in to fix. I’ve seen large sections of porch columns successfully rebuilt with epoxy. Yet I’ve been warned to proceed with caution.South Dakota woodworker and remodeler Ben Brunick has done extensive repair to damaged window sash and other exterior trim with epoxy. He is quick to remind me that unless you first fix the problem that is causing the rot, you are wasting your time. The wood around the repair will just continue to degrade and the repair will fail.Ben recently… This article is only available to GBA Prime Members Sign up for a free trial and get instant access to this article as well as GBA’s complete library of premium articles and construction details.center_img Start Free Trial Already a member?

4,000 women tie rakhis to BJP MLA Vishvas Sarang

first_imgMore than 4,000 women on Saturday flocked to an open field to tie rakhis to local BJP MLA Vishvas Sarang.As Mr. Sarang entered the field in Subhash Nagar to the thumping beats of Yeh Desh Hai Veer Jawano Ka, waving at women and children with an arm dangling with rakhis, the host announced: “We’ll not call him an MLA today. He is our bhaiyya (elder brother).”Dhurwati Yadav, who has been attending the week-long event since 2009, when it began, said: “Since bhaiyya invited us, we had to come”.After waiting in line 15 minutes, she tied him a rakhi, bearing faces of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah. In return, she received a gift — a wallet — and a free meal. Last year, each woman got an umbrella.For the past one week, about 100-150 women BJP workers knocked on each door of the area, part of the Narela constituency that Mr. Sarang represents, to invite women to the event. Mamata Goswami, a worker in-charge of one of the wards, said more than 6,000 invitation receipts were collected, each having the invitee’s name, address and phone number. The invitation read: “It is because of the love and blessings of you sisters that the path of progress undertaken by this brother has lit up”.Surrounded by boys feverishly dancing to the music, she said only women between 18 and 60 are allowed to tie rakhis to the MLA.last_img read more

India vs England, 2nd Test Day 1: India lose openers early on a green top at Lord’s

first_imgIndia’s Shikhar Dhawan leaves the field after being dismissed during the second test cricket match against England at Lord’s cricket ground in London on July 17, 2014. Reuters India lost both openers early to reach 73 for two in their first innings at lunch on the first day of the second cricket Test against England at Lord’s in London on Thursday.Cheteshwar Pujara (11 not out) and Virat Kohli (20 not out) were at the crease when lunch was called after a tough first session on a green track at Lord’s.Winning the toss, England captain Alastair Cook didn’t blink an eyelid before asking India to bat on a surface that was tailor-made to benefit the English bowlers.The ball swung right from the word go troubling the India openers Shikhar Dhawan (7) and Murali Vijay (24). Pacer James Anderson (1/11) and Liam Plunkett (1/20) were the two wicket-takers for the hosts.Anderson, who is staring at a two-match ban for allegedly ‘pushing and abusing’ India all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja, looked as if he was ready to have his bowling do all the talking.The pace spearhead provided England the first breakthrough with an outstanding delivery that pitched outside leg, forcing Dhawan to play at it and the southpaw nicked it through to third slip, a low catch taken by Gary Ballance.In the next over, Vijay also got a reprieve as he was dropped off Stuart Broad even before he could open his account. Keeper Matt Prior made a valiant dive to his right and got his glove before putting down what was a tough chance.advertisementVijay and Pujara then added 37 runs for the second wicket to stabilise the innings. But just when it looked that Vijay, who struck four fours, was growing in confidence the batsman edged Plunkett to Ballance for his second catch of the morning at third slip.last_img read more

Proposed rules update

first_imgDuring 2018, Touch Football Australia (TFA) undertook a review of the 7th Edition Playing Rules. This process engaged a number of stakeholders including current administrators, coaches, referees, referee coaches and players, who provided advice and expertise in the development of the next edition of our playing rules.The outcome is a proposed version of the 8th Edition TFA Playing Rules that reflects today’s trends of the game.View the Proposed 8th Edition Rules. View a short animation explaining the rule changes.Most changes simply align the rule book to what is being interpreted at all levels of our game, where other changes may have a more noticeable impact on the way the game is played. For this reason, TFA has determined that the proposed rules will be tested at the 2019 National Touch League (NTL), along with other events should it be deemed appropriate to do so, before the 8th Edition is ratified and released to the community for its use.It is proposed that the 8th Edition will be in use in competitions across the country from 1 July 2019. Below are the major features of the 8th Edition TFA Playing Rules:• The terminology used throughout the rules has realigned our sport to its roots and the terminology used throughout most of our community. ‘Touchdowns’ are now ‘tries’, the ‘score zone’ is now the ‘in-goal area’, the ‘score line’ is the ‘tryline’ and ‘a period of time’ is ‘the sin-bin’.• Defenders will be required to retire a set distance of 7 metres from the ruck as opposed to the current ‘not less than 5 metres’ rule. This will improve consistency in its application and is more in line with what is currently being applied across our sport.• The change to the 7 metres will see the introduction of a 7-metre zone rather than the current 5 metre zone at either end of the field. Players will be required to move forward once a defender enters that zone as is the current rule but will be required to now do so at a ‘reasonable pace’. What is deemed ‘reasonable pace’ will be well-defined throughout all education to aid consistent application.• The defender will be required to retire to an onside position without interfering or impeding the attacking team. This rule will replace the requirement to return to an onside position without changing direction. A player may now choose any direction and change that direction, as long as their actions do not interfere with the attacking team.• Any three consecutive infringements in the one possession by the defending team in their 7-metre zone will result in the last player to infringe being placed in the nearest sin-bin area until their team regains possession of the ball.• Any touch made following an intercept or following a ball being touched in flight will be zero touch.• Any player sent to the sin-bin will remain in the sin-bin for a compulsory two completed sets of possession by both teams. This will no longer be at the discretion of the referee and will provide greater consistency in its application.• Any incorrect restart, i.e. a tap, is taken off the mark or taken instead of a Rollball will no longer result in a change of possession. The player will be simply required to return to the correct mark and perform the correct restart.• Interchanges during a breakaway situation will be prohibited. Any player who enters the field from the interchange area during a breakaway, regardless of whether a try is scored or not, will be sent to the sin-bin.• The drop-off procedure will be consistent with the international game and consistent across all major TFA events.The above list covers the most prominent changes; there are additional and more subtle changes that have been adopted to ensure the rules reflect current game trends.The 7th Edition has been in place for almost two decades and with shifting game trends over that time came a change to the way the rules were interpreted. It is TFA’s intention to monitor these trends more closely in the future and adjust the rules on a more regular basis. In order to do that, a National Game Committee will be created to monitor the trends of the game at all levels and make recommendations on future rule changes.Once the new edition is ratified, TFA will roll out educational resources.last_img read more
