  1. Thanks I’ve actually found this particular item quite difficult to find in the past. Are used to use them when working on my wooden boat with a very cool script with a very coarse gritThey can really move the word and you can work pretty accurately with a bit of practice Sent from my iPad using Thaivisa Connect
  2. Angle grinder sanding discs and backing pad Pref ban tawai/south side of CM Thanks Sent from my iPad using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  3. I think there’s a reputable but more economical type of Bluescope sheet called ZAKS Sent from my iPad using Thaivisa Connect
  4. Whoops I was thinking black and white costs 2 or 3 baht but colour a lot dearer. Wondering what the cost might be for like half a wall. Could look damn good slapped on with wallpaper paste......Doesn’t have to be rectangular either either, the individual A4s could be cut on a curve to make a bigger curve overall Sent from my iPad using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app

  6. AFAIK our new house with single AAC block doesn’t have any waterproofing other than being raised and sitting on concrete and having a good overhang Sent from my iPad using Thaivisa Connect
  7. I don’t have a printer....... I would have to go to a print shop. Do you think they might be across about me using so much ink? :) Maybe don’t show them what they’re printing til it’s done!! Sent from my iPad using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  8. This sets the imagination firing. so for a pic the size of say a door it might need say 60 prints on A4 I believe black and white prints are just 2 or 3 baht but how much are colour?
  9. Damn I've lost a big post. Lets try pasting Hi Andy youre really on the case already. I've gone to the Art Tutor site you used but frankly what you have drawn is just fine. I think I prefer the second with a 10 x 6 grid and approx 5 x 5 for the green grid looks good. Thoughts: I think I would like to bring the painting to the edges of the canvas rather than have a white border , but notice your gridlines come past the edge. I have a canvas pretty close to the proportions of the photo, so will probably just have to crop or extend the photo image left and right as necessary. in fact I just measure the canvas its 150 x 80cm......L/W 1.875 I now just measured the photo on the screen .......16cm x 9.8cm..... L/W approx 1.6 This means the canvas is clearly a wider proportion than the photo. I could just add black to the left and right to righten the proportion. Or I think it would look OK if I cropped the bottom a bit. Cropping the top would lose a bit of the action, the winding track. I've just cropped a tiny bit at top and more at the bottom and the resulting proportions pretty much fit the canvas yet the change doesn't detract from the image I think......maybe even an improvement. See below. Chores to do will be back to work outlaying the grid on the canvas Thanks for all help and any more bright ideas. It would be great to have a grid with a whole number of vertical lines starting and finishing on the L and R sides exactly. I realise the horizontal lines cannot be a whole number with this canvas but would be nice to have squares and the first gridline concurrent with the top or bottom
  10. Thanks.....as Andy has posted examples that look quite satisfactory I can decide answers to your.....and my,.....queations working from them I think
  11. Below is a photo Id like to copy with paint on A large canvas. I'd like to transfer the basic shape using a grid. If anyone's feeling particularly smart could I make a finer scale grid around the walking figure......like a grid inside one of the square or rectangles the main grid? Can anyone suggest a clever way to do this? Thanks v much
  12. There's certainly been competition with all the new buildings but they are much of a sort......the 32 sqm sort you don't like. They and even most of the bigger ones look good at first but in fact are pretty low quality, narrow hallways , melamine kitchens, cheap fittings etc. Older buildings in very good locations have more advantages and places like Skybreeze are in great demand with all the advantages of a terrific saltwater pool and walks and rides through CMU campus and up the hills via very nice student eateries and coffee shops.
  13. I prefer to pay for myself and choose where I will be treated and buy meds and not pay for others who are insured and automatically go to the most expensive places. I prefer not to pay for insurance offices and staff and advertising etc, and not be subject to their decisions. In some instances if time allows I may decide to return for free treatment in the country in which I paid in in my younger years to benefit in my older years. I would end with a question: I have at least one chronic condition which will certainly not get covered by insurance. Do insurance companies reduce premiums if they reduce their potential payouts by reducing conditions covered? I understand there’s a place for insurance but not for me thanks Sent from my iPad using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  14. I got an extension of stay to my non-O visa stamp very recently same as the last 15 years. If it turns out I need to get insurance would it have to be by 31 October or would it have to be when I next apply for an extension? I realize answering can be difficult. Secondly if I got married officially does this get rid of the need for this health insurance? Thanks Sent from my iPad using Thaivisa Connect
  15. I double checked my passport and indeed on the first stamps it clearly says non-O. So I just looked up on WIKI and found this among other types of visa So firstly it says retirement visa is O-A not O Secondly where does the "non" as in non-O come into it? Lastly i looked up the longstay govt website to see what the annual premium might be....doesn't seem to be available. As the sum covered is only 400k one would presume the premium would be much less than the premium private insurance companies have been offering as they would be on the hook for very large "sums insured" and people I know who are insured tend to go to expensive hospitals. So dow we know whats being offered? Thoughts? EDIT: It looks like the longstay.tgia site indeed points to private companies not some sort of govt scheme. I personally have been self insuring, have the assets to do so, and am happy doing so. If I have to get insurance I will no longer have the option to "shop around" and make major economies on treatment and pharmaceuticals
  16. Progress report: After three days of a couple of drops down again now and again I happened to be in the shower and I thought as there’s a fairly good pressure I put turn the water up to moderately hot nothing dangerous and squirted it in my ear with my head on the side and wiggling around the parts of my ear of my ear so I could hearThe ear canal closing and unclosing..... you may remember I said I have narrow ear canals. Anyway the shot is the short version is there’s a considerable improvement later that same day I said to the wife there’s a 70% improvement. Since then which is a day or two it seems to have improved moreOn its own. Anyway I might give it another shot for a couple of days. It can’t hurt. Thanks to all Sent from my iPad using Thaivisa Connect
  17. Thanks to all for great replies. Interestingly as soon as the wife saw BUA CHERNG She recognized it and said no it’s CHERNG BUA And as sunny boy suggested she looked it up on the Zada on Lazada or somewhere and. Indeed it was the way around but she said Sorry about the voice typing mistakes it’s not my fault it’s the system! Sent from my iPad using Thaivisa Connect

  21. For the first time my left ear feels bunged up when I move my forehand muscles up, and sound is muffled. Wax? I have small ear canals may not help. I had them one cleaned one time at the price of abt 1200 in a private hospital. Seems a simple procedure to me, and Im wondering if I can go somewhere for about quarter that price? I live south of CM and drive in daily and am happy with anywhere not too far from my route up the river or else on the south/west/central part of town. Thanks for tips
  22. Hi we have a dbl bed which has a cheapo looking skirt/valance round the bottom.

Thanks ps south of city or central best Sent from my iPad using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
