  1. The boss wants me to put a decorative fire place in, after getting the bits off ebay I now have to work out how to fix a cast iron fire place to the wall, it dosnt need to be sealed in as its not going to be used, does anyone have any ideas how to fix it to the wall as it has no bracket to mount it?

    I tried to fix a blocked Sinus with it. Thankfully it wasn't on me but an infant whose suffocation and reasonably painful death wasn't important. Your builder may need to put in a small clause whilst making sweeping statements.

    You just used the wrong type. Even a fool like you should know than you need the quick grip variety for sinus problems.

    Double sided sticky tape?
     
  10. Why not actually have a fire fitted? Save a fortune on gas.
     
  11. Strip the wallpaper off THEN use no more nails?
     
  12. No chimney hence faux fireplace
     
  13. I'd rather use screws or nails but that is good stuff.
     
  14. It's going back a bit, but doesn't the decorative front fix to the cast iron grate (bolts go through the grate into threaded holes in the back of the frontage). Sounds like you're missing the fire grate.

    I could be wrong, it's about 40 years since I messed about with one.
     
  15. you said it would work for my TV, are you back peddling?
