Retaining Wall Advice

A 28m long, 1 m high timber retaining wall in my back garden needs to be replaced and I wish to go with the concrete sleeper, steel post option.

By no means an inexpensive project, the industry tradesmen I've spoken to have used terms like "agi pipe", "drainage" and "geo fabric membrane".

I would really love an experienced retaining wall labourer/ engineer/ landscape designer to proof the quotes I've received, before I commit to making a decision. Due to my lack of experience I just want to make sure I have all bases covered and the finished product will be of quality.

Please contact by phone only: 0422 440 868. I do respond to voice messages.

Airbrush basics

I am keen to learn abbasics. I have a basic airbrush and compressor and would like to use the ab for touch up paint on motorycle frames etc., and have not used an ab before. (I dont have to do portraits). I have watched several vignettes and am reading a book on AB at the moment (Crellin. (2013) Airbrushing), however I need face to face training as I am a complete newby here. I am happy to split Lets Units and Federal dollars 50/50 if that assists plus pay for materials, petrol, tolls etc. I am anticipating you could come to me (I am on the inner north side) or I could go to you. As you require. I am avail through the week day and night and on Saturdays say for 3 or 4 sessions of say 1-1.5hrs. I am keen to start asap please. All up I was thinking of around 200 LETS units supplemented by Federal dollars where required. Thank you ciao paul

Basic toaster and blender repairs

Standard Sunbeam toaster has functional heating element, except problem with toasting in that once I depress the "lever" part on the side I have to stand by the toaster and hold it down, otherwise it springs right back up. It is possible a mechinal spring inside that is causing the problem.

Braun blender also has a mechanical problem. The black plastic "wheel" of the blender's electrical part is meant to fit into the white plastic "wheel" at the base of the blender jug (photo attached). Something has stopped aligning so now I have to stand and hold the jug in place for the blending action to work.

 

Some help would be greatly appreciated! Please contact by phone (0422 440 868) only.

Events Coordinator

BrisLETS needs a member who has some free time and is interested in seeing members and the community harness the potential of the group by organising events.

The Event Coordinator(s) ensure our monthly Market Trading Days happen. The date, time and place is usually set, so there's not a lot to do, other than get the word out via our newsletter and website and then be there on the day to open the venue, set up, ensure the hire cost if an is covered and paid and then do the clean and pack up and closing. Other duties that can also be delegated include running a raffle, making announcements, deciding which rooms to use and organising speakers and presentations.

The amount of work you do is up to you, of course, although there are some expectations (see Job Description link below). Stipends are payable to you (in Units) as a token expression of appreciation of your volunteer work.

Please see the job description on our website here and get in touch through the contact page.

Ladder

I need a ladder - probably wooden one is best so I can cut it to length, (about 3.5 meters) but even metal is fine if it's 3.5 meters.

Call me and let's talk Units/Swap and delivery.

Garden Working Bee

Hi all

I need help in the Garden, you don't need experience or knowledge and I want to work with you. It won't be hours and hours of weeding, 'cause I have a low maintenance (Permaculture) garden. 20u per hour, or you suggest how much and the reason.

May 2019 I won the Eco Champion award from Logan City Council (https://www.logan.qld.gov.au/about-logan/awards/logan-eco-awards) and my place has been in Sustainable House Day since 2016 (https://sustainablehouseday.com/house/bro-joes-space-jasmine-and-honey-scented-shed/).

I could briefly show you some of my sustainable features, while you're here. A full tour would take too long and it is an offering I have here on BrisLETS, but if you wanted a full tour and you came early, we could do both. I get up around 5am usually and am usually ready to work about 7am, after exercise, meditation and breakfast. After lunch, I need to rest, due to medical conditions.

This is an ongoing need, but I urgently need help moving mulch. 3 or four loads would probably do the main job I want done before the 25th of May, when I have an Open House and Garden to raise funds for PermaFund (https://permacultureaustralia.org.au/permafund/).

If you have a car with a tow bar, any day would be fine. If not, it would depend on when my brother's car was free to hook up to the trailer here.

best wishes

Drop Off Point hosts wanted

Do you have a suitable space at home to set up a Drop Off Point (DOP) for LETS trading items?
It could be on the verandah, or a corner of the shed or possibly a spot under the front stairs out of view of the road.
If you are willing we could put a set of shelves there or a table dedicated for LETS use. Local members can drop off items that have been ordered. (Each parcel must be clearly labelled with seller, buyer and destination.)
Any member travelling across town can help by picking up items from your DOP and moving them on to the next one. It will make a difference so our members who are scattered across the region can more easily exchange the amazing range of items on offer in our system.
Please let us know if you live on a potential “trade route” and you would like to help.

Please see the job description on our website here and get in touch through the contact page.
