Abs eh.. stuff is like so brittle after 5-10 years.

Sure it is quick and cheap to put in but it dont last like copper or cast.

How's the cell core PVC in the states guys does it go brittle too..

Usually the sys 15 and xfr is quite tough and doesn't get brittle like the abs does

The little cellular core pvc I have seen was old and seemed fine. They like to use that in the city. Where I am most of us prefer pvc except for some of the older "less aspirational" guys who prefer abs.


The only application I have seen where abs might be preferred for performance reasons is when pouring a lead joint with an abs adapter. The pvc ones tend to light on fire easier where as the abs adapters put up with the heat. But really? How often are you going to pour a joint?

Nothing fancy, just more for convenience. I've had this copper glue pot holder for years.

The glue cans aren't likely to tip over and spill with this holder.

Assuming you have windows, open the picture with mspaint/paint, rotate the picture, and then save the file.


If you just open the file with windows picture viewer and rotate it that doesn't save the file as rotated, it just rotates it whenever you look at the file on your computer with windows picture viewer.


If you don't have the paint program you can easily download it or any other number of picture editing software.

We used to have to use Pix re-sizer to upload photos here at PZ. But something changed and you can just up-load pictures without having to re-size them. I used to be able to rotate the pictures on my PC and then upload them here, but I can't figure it out. I'll have to go back to using my digital camera, I never had a problem with that. For some reasong I-phone pictures get screwed up.

Take pictures with your iPhone horizontal not vertical and they will upload normal.
