comment What are the pros and cons of UV window film?
@ChrisF - presumably they filter both UV and IR. That is just a guess. One product (windowenergysolutions.com.au/why_use_film1.html) claims 80% heat and 99% UV blockage.

90x35 is also available - that would be closer to the 89x38mm you've quoted above. I dare say 90x45 is more useful since it maintains the 2:1 ratio.

comment How to cut curved legs for a table
Will a bandsaw cope with hardwood? I'm not sure what wood it is since the doors are about 90years old but they are damn heavy - I'm guessing Tasmanian Oak.

comment Securing our roof against possums
Followup: tried putting the cat in the roof - no difference. Useless cat. The next thing I'll try is putting some cat scat on the roof near the power line where the possum is coming across.

@allindal - Thanks, I'll have a squiz. I searched on possum, should have checked for generic animals.

Good idea. We have a useless cat (lets pigeons share his food while he eats), but perhaps we can spread some cat hair around or put one of his old blankets up there.
