    Hi guys. Does anyone know where I can get hold of the self tapers for Worcester flue joints? Worcester want like £2.50 per screw. Just been to a local fixings place and they don’t have any. Any help would be great

    I’m terrible mate. I’ve had my gas for near 5 years but always done wet Plumbing no gas. That’s why I question everything.

    Are you sure? Without having a flue to hand that just seems to long. When I spoke to Worcester earlier they stated a size of 6.5 x 9.5mm

    100mm dia
    60mm internal

    gives 40mm space / 2 20mm either side + 1.5mm - 2mm for the alu

    gives you around 21-22mm screw length before you hit anything in theory

    I know that feeling, I was doing plumbing for about 11 years, held gas for same amount of time, but rarely touched it, certainly not appliances, not even heating. I still question stuff. :eek:

    I sometimes think it would be less hassle to knock it all in the head and just stack shelves. Especially when you’re expected to do things that contravene regs. I’d rather not have the job.

    I’ve often found myself thinking the same thing, but I’ve worked stacking shelves and checkout operation when I was an apprentice, it’s a bit mundane. I like the challenges of this job and having to sometimes think on your feet.
