Re: Automatic gate

Re: Powertrain Problem

Re: Terrace chairs

Big Klang behind Power Buy on Soi 88 might have choices in addition to Home Pro. To get some replies you need to say what needs repairing. Or what you want. Wood? Canvas? Bamboo/ Upholstered? Rattan?

Re: MSG inThai food

If you would like to eat TSP it is one of the ingredients in Cheerios - listed right on the package. Unbeatable stain remover and degreaser but I doubt anyone would want to sprinkle it on their meal.

Re: Electrical installation advice.

I would be concerned about all the breakers being 32 Amp. Not necessarily for safety, as he probably doesn’t have a wood house, but that does not even protect the wire runs let alone whatever appliances and fixtures he has.

Re: MSG inThai food

Especially for p...
