    Wanted .... Electric Plane

    Post by Gypsy on Thu 7 Aug 2014 - 19:16

    I know this is only applicable to a couple of people who live here but does anyone have an electric plane I can borrow.  I need the tiniest bit taking off the bottom of a door. (nothing to do with aeroplanes). It has been done more times than I can remember but expands with the heat.  It is hard work doing it by hand knowing it will only be months before you need to do it again.  So if anyone can help, will only need to borrow for about 30 mins max.  Tia.

    Run a piece o thin cardboard under the door then close, get a handsaw and put it under, thenn just edge it along it will take enough off, if you want I will do.

    Jim knows how to do it, and has taken the door of lots of times and over the years must have lopped about an inch off the bottom so I think Vince is right, Magma Rising

    Must be general Spanish workmanship then cos my bathroom door wont shut either. Dont bother me though, if peeps like what they see..... Front door wont shut quietly, needs slamming, vaguely fits. Patio doors let in brown dust,
