    jason, deep heat is a solution but colgate (aparantly) is just as effective and (apparantly very painful) and it is easier to get hold of. Try sainsbury's (watch out moderator3 deletes all references to food outlets)

    Now if the door has dropped(<u>pulled away from the top hinge with a little thing called weight)</u>

    do you lot call that a door dropping? i dont!
    i always say a door dropping is the weight of the closing side dropping. ive been arguing with mdf man all day and i dont know what im thinking anymore;)

    have you read the paving thread. i think he reads a different thread before he answers as i cant work him out. he just answers his own nagging doubts in his head and not the question asked. whats this about all wood not being mdf? since when....????;)

    OK sid. Just because I suggest some thing and YOU don't understand it, doesn't mean it's wrong. It means you ain't got the brains to understand it. Ha Ha Ha Ha.
    I love it when you show yourself up to be the thickest. Ha Ha Ha

    Dirty deeds. You said I offered a solution as an ONLY solution. Did I say that ? Where did I say that ? Show me.
    I never once said that was the ONLY solution, did I ? Show me. Go on. Show me Another fool. Talking out of their *.

    And by the way. Does every door you fit get fitted into a £2.5m flat in London ?
    It's general DIY on here most of the time. Haven't you ***** noticed that yet, thickos.
    Is this guys place a £2.5m flat in London, the Crystal Palace(once) ? I don't think so. Perhaps you would charge him £400 to sort it out ? Cause little jobs ain't worth doing, are they ? Someone told me that once.

    Now ** off. You do things your way, I'll do things my way and we'll see who gets all the thanks. And we'll all be happy. Losers

    Handyandy - really

    simple demonstration of the problem and solution to the original problem "the door closes itself"( i notice that you go off topic when you are losing an arguement)

    Take a hardback book about A4 size (or a piece of mdf) Hold it at arms length the same way up as a door using both fore fingers and thumbs in the same position as the hinges

    NOW. keeping the top "hinge" at arms length move the bottom "hinge" towards you (but still keeping the "hinges" one over the other the "door" automatically moves. (if you move the top "hinge" towards you the "door" moves the other way.

    The solution is to move the "hinges" back into the vertical position, hence my comments.

    Now try your solution, FIRST move the bottom "hinge" towards you so the "door" moves. SECOND move the bottom hinge inwards as <u>you</u> suggest . YOU WILL NOTICE THAT YOUR SOLUTION DOES NOT WORK.

    now i suggest you go back to playing with mdf

    doors in expensive london flats

    have the same problems as 15 panel doors from wickes

    the solutions are no different.

    there is no difference between DIY doors and those in expensive london flats (except the price)

    sorry andy but you walked straight into that one
