If you have a necklace or bracelet that has broken, and want the beads restrung, I can do this for you using silk beading thread, jewellery wire or jewellery elastic. I can also remake 'strung' or 'dangle' earrings using head pins and ear wires.

Knife Sharpening Service

Knife Sharpening Service

I can sharpen your kitchen knives, however I cannot sharpen serrated blades.

A dull blade is actually more dangerous to use than one that is sharp. Here's why: A dull blade requires more pressure to cut, increasing the chance that the knife will slip with great force behind it. A sharp knife "bites" the surface more readily. 

 

Lawn Mower blades can also be sharpened and balanced.

It’s recommended that you sharpen the blade of your lawnmower at least once a year.

Dull blades will roughly rip through grass, leaving behind raggedly torn tips on the ends of the individual grass blades. And that can cause the grass to turn brown and leave your lawn more susceptible to disease and pests. Sharp blades, on the other hand, cut grass quickly and cleanly, resulting in a neatly trimmed, healthier lawn.

Preventative Car Maintenance

Regular preventive maintenance is probably the single thing you can do as a car owner to keep your car happy and save money on repairs in the future.



I can carry out preventative car maintenance procedures such as:

Power Steering Fluid Flush – keeps your power steering pump and rack in tip-top condition

This is not normally carried out during your annual service, but it is recommended to keep you car in good conidtion and prevent expensive bills down the line.

Lubricating locks and hinges – prevents doors and locks from getting stuck leaving you stranded

Fluid level and condition checks - low fluid levels or worn out fluids can cause serious damage to your car

Tyre Pressure checks with a professional calibrated guage -incorrect tyre pressure can cause increased fuel costs or even worse a tyre to explode at high speed!

Tyre Tread depth - tyre tread depth is critical for safety, worn out tyres can cause skidding in wet weather or tyres to explode in hot weather. On the other hand some less scrupulous garages will say your tyres will need changing when they dont to sell you new tyres, I can give you an independant evaluation.

Do you sometimes buy yarn in skeins, and have to wind it into balls before you can knit with it? Do you have to find someone willing to hold the skeins then spend a tedious time winding each ball by hand, making your (and their) shoulders ache? I have a yarn 'swift' and ball winder and can wind the skeins into neat 'yarn cakes' for you. Let me know in advance and I can bring them to a First Wednesday meeting or Meet & Greet, or bring the skein to a meeting or my house.

Typically 4 Bricks per skein, unless the skein is a particularly large one which will take longer to wind, in which case I will tell you the Bricks before I start.

4 per skein
