Re: Thai Airways Updates

Received an email saying their policy for Aussie checked in luggage has been changed back from 20kg to 30kg.
Great but only if you bought a ticket after August sometime.
Fair enough I guess as May purchase was pretty good value.

Re: Stump Removal

Build a small fire over the top and burn 'em out. If the fire has enough staying power it'll usually smoulder it's way through the roots as well. Good one bluejets. A tried and true method, you must be a farm boy. Can’t believe maaka didn’t pull that one out of his kiwi bag of tricks. Sent from my ...

Re: Extension Cords Hard to Find Now

Interesting post blue But I disagree with you completely. The same size and construction of every appliance here in Thailand using a FLAT blade plug is no different than 3 prong flat blade plug pictured earlier. I've been using those same flat blade with a ground pin plugs on every extension cord I...

Re: Extension Cords Hard to Find Now

The 3 pin plug and socket in the picture are only rated for 125 volts. I saw them at Dohome and asked them to remove them as they are dangerous. Yes an ELCB or GFI are a must for safety. Look at how many people die using chargers for phones that fail. To be exact they have a number of 15A 125V stam...

Re: Extension Cords Hard to Find Now

So I stand by my statement that 2 pin and socket extensions on 2 core cable are perfectly safe and acceptable. Just goes to show you know nothing about electrical application. No, it just goes to show that you should read and understand before making assumptions. The first thing that most would do ...

Re: Extension Cords Hard to Find Now

It seems that all the big places like Global House sell some quality cords in different lengths, but all are really 2 wire, even though they will accept 3 wire plugs. I have made some, but just not the same. Hmm, seems that everything electric I buy here in Udon has a 2 prong plug. lawn mower, hedg...

Re: Extension Cords Hard to Find Now

I admit that I know nothing about electrical wiring. However, if you have a three pin plug with a three core wire doesn't the three hole socket in the wall actually have to have a wire leading to earth for the thing to be safe? :? If the main socket isn't correctly earthed then a three wire extensi...

Nothing wrong with an extension with 2 core cable, as long as there is a 2 pin plug and 2 pin socket.

Well, actually there is.
As I pointed out ,only single insulation.

Re: Extension Cords Hard to Find Now

The small village shop near where I live has several different sizes of three wire cable and the grounded three prong plugs. I make mine to what ever length I want. Those cheap ones you buy with a three prong plug and receptacle that use two wire cable should be illegal. Many items one buys these d...

Have you thought about asking whomever is about to do the RAC install...?

Chances are they may use a particular chap regularly.

Re: The FLASHING of Headlights

In Aus it means beware coppers ahead or a speed camera. So Aussies use it to stop people breaking the law for a few moments ......... why am I NOT surprised :lol: :lol: :lol: They only ever slow down for a few moments anyhow, caught or not.

Re: The FLASHING of Headlights

Using your lights to warn of Police is some countries is also an offence It is .....boys in blue tend to frown on it rather intently.....but these days the radar is either hidden inside an air conditioned van parked on the side of the road or inside an unmarked car. But the Wallies still speed...go...

Re: The HORN

The horn is fitted so that you can give a 'toot' while driving past any Buddhist shrine. A bit like the one next to my in-laws house where the whole village blasts their horns day and night :) Same for the creek crossing near Chum Phae. Just wait until you experience night time running with the hea...
