Can you guesstimate the cost of double glazing?
Can you guesstimate the price of double glazing for a typical terrace house with 8 windows?
I know its in the thousands, but it is the low thousands or much higher?
Question answered by pampurredpuss
Average price is £70 per sealed window, £120 for opening ones.
So a window measuring 4 feet wide by 5 feet high is 1 sealed window, 1 3/4 size window and one open top, total £260. So if you have all the same throughout the house that will be £2080. Plus the charge of labour say £1500, total £3580. They will take about 2 - 3 days to fit them. And if you replace your doors as well, around £600 each, probably get them less as you're having the windows done as well. Get the front door with no handle on the outside that can only be opened with the key, just a safety thing.
How can I unstick a piece of glazed pottery from Kiln shelf?
I have 2 pieces of glazed pottery on one of my kild shelves and can't get them off. Any ideas?
Question answered by plainrsc
Take a look at your piece and revise the question.
Did you use kiln wash on the shelf?
Kiln wash helps to a degree.
Is the piece stuck in a few places?
You might be able to chip the glaze away using a chisel and hammer
WEAR SAFETY GLASSES
Is the piece solidly glued to the piece?
You might be out of luck
You could try to hit the piece with a piece of wood.
The you could try using the wood like a chisel with a hammer.
Talk to some people locally before deciding which is more valuable--- The Pieces or the shelf.
Sort of seeing what you can salvage.
What are some toxic ingredients in glazes?
As a ceramicist, its important for me to have function and form, so I need food safe glazes of course. However, its easier for me to get glaze ingredients and mix them myself. So what are some ingredients in a glaze that make it a non-food safe glaze? What are some things in some glazes that might be poisonous if I'm going to eat and drink out of it? Thanks in advance!
Question answered by tigrillen
In addition to lead you also should avoid cadmium, though if properly fired cadmium does not necessarily pose a problem, but if you formulate your own glazes and don't test for food safety I'd avoid it. I think both, lead and cadmium can leach out under acid conditions. And both are part of FDA standards for food-safe glazes.
Also textured glazes like crackle or crystal glazes are not really best for food as food can get trapped in the small spaces and lead to bacterial growth, they can be harder to clean.
Keep in mind that a lot of the metal salts in glazes are toxic before fired.
Can double glazed glassed can be used to make car windows instead of single glass?
Can double glazed glassed can be used to make car windows instead of single glass?
If it is very effective in house then i think i should be very effective in car too ?
Question answered by dodge man
i own a shop,and it has to be safety glass or it wont pass inspection,because if you get in an accident,it cannot break out in large pieces,so i don't think you would want that in a car for safety reasons,good luck with it.
Are bubbles in ceramic glaze of a crock pot dangerous?
I just bought a new crock pot. There are imperfections in the ceramic glaze: like little tiny craters or pits where the glaze coating is not thick enough. It's like the glaze didn't completely cover these little tiny pitted aras. In one or two of these I can see down to the bisque clay. Is this a problem? Is it going to allow germs or mold to seep into the ceramic clay? Should I return it? BTW, it's a KitchenAid.
Question answered by likeit1
Yes, it is very dangerous and I would return it back to the Store since it is a Health and Safety Issue.
Many such items made in China are causing similar hazards.
Bad quality control and sub standard materials used in cutting cost and corner jeopardizing peoples health.
How do you recondition general aviation ac brake pads?
Do you just disassemble the brake shoes and scuff up the pads to remove the glazing? My brake pads are farely new and the pad thickness is good.
Do you need to clean the pad faces with anything in particular prior to reassembly? How do you like to wear in the pads after reconditioning?
Mine are Cleveland brakes on my Steen Skybolt. I've already drained and replaced the hydraulic fluid correctly. Master cylinders are fine too. My brake system is sound with no leaks or softness.

What's the best way of blocking draughts and where can i buy the stuff from?
It's a rented house so I really don't want to invest a lot. Hower there are draughts coming in from windows and internal doors. The external door is fine as it does not go directly outside but into a hallway. No double glazing and it's cold even with the heating on full blast and open gas fire!!
I am living in it.
And want something that is not going to be too noticeable as it is really nicely decorated.
Question answered by keithanthony0169
If you are living in the UK call your local office of the Councils Department of Environmental Health Private Sector Housing to come and take a look at your house.
They will do a survey of everything that is the Landlords legal obligation to fix and he will be sent an enforcement order to do the work quickly.
If you have no double glazing that is one thing that , in the UK he will be forced to install to bring the property up to a minimum standard.
If you have draughts coming through doors he will be forced to fit new fire safety doors which will not allow draughts through. if you have draughts the doors are not safe in the event of fire because they will not hold the fire back and they will not keep the smoke away from you so they must be changed by law!
In the meanwhile get a nice warm sleeping bag and contact the local gymnasium to send around a coupla beef cakes to keep you warm!
I really hope this helps and that I have put the heat on your Landlord to warm things up for you. I did this myself with my landlord and he was ordered to fit new fire safety doors, new double glazed windows, a new roof, new fireproof walls, new electrical system, fire alarm system, and central heating.
Let us/me know how you get on ;)
why does my female cat grab a piece of clothing with her mouth and knead and sway back and forth?
My cat will sometimes walk up to a T-shirt or some other article of clothing I have laying somewhere, grab it in her mouth, and then do the kneading thing while swaying her butt. She also gets this glazed-over look in her eyes while she's doing it and I have to really try and snap her out of it. She is unaltered so Im assuming this has something to do with her heat cycle, but Im not sure and I dont really know what this means in the whole scheme of things. Should I stop her from doing this? Is it therapeutic for her or something? Is there something Im not providing her (besides a boy cat which isnt going to happen) that I should be?
Question answered by ophelliaz
I have two boy cats and they can't sit to be petted without sucking at a blanket (or clothing, though I prefer the blanket). It's natural.
Most often it is because she wasn't quite done weening. She just associates the comfort of suckling and kneading with safety and affection. It has nothing to do with actually being hungry, though. It's just the feeling of comfort.
Cats that don't do the suckling thing still knead and, even, drool a little when they're all curled up and snuggling with you. It's the same instinct.
She chooses your clothes because they smell like you.
Don't worry about it and there's no need to change the behavior. She's just in cat heaven.
how do you remove colored glaze from decorative glass?
I have some cannisters that are made of clear glass and then they have a coat of color over the glass . It's like a glaze. you can see through it and it has been scratched in places. I have soaked it in hot water and some of the color comes off, but not all.
Question answered by Chirp
I'm sure there is more than one kind of coating, so probably there's more than one way to get it off. I start by soaking in warn/hot water, then scrubbing with one of those nylon pouf-ball dish scrubbers, which usually gets most or all of it. If that doesn't get it, I start trying solvents - Goo-Gone, rubbing alcohol, or nail polish remover WITH acetone (anything stronger than that generally will start having serious safety issues and/or damaging the glass).
Alternatively, you could consider buying some transparent glass paints and either touch them up or even recoat them. Most craft stores/departments sell one or more brands.
Is it safe to eat off antique china?
I inherited a beautiful 12-piece china set from my great grandmother that is dated to 1914. Several plates and tea cups have "antiquing lines" or small, light cracks running through the glaze. Are these safe to eat off, or should I consider them just a nice talking piece?
Question answered by mim
You should be fine. What you see is called crazing, which is a natural thing that happens to old dishes and china. If there is a crack caused from damage or a chip that food touches, I would not recommend using it. Same goes for mugs and bowls wether they are new or not. Cracked, chipped, or glued items are not considered food safe.
What you are referring to is fine and will not compromise the safety of using it for food.
