Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    You would use a 2 foot spirit level to fit a door lining?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    False.
    You would typically use a longer spirit level, often 4 or 6 feet in length, to fit a door lining. These longer levels provide greater accuracy and help ensure that the door lining is perfectly level and plumb. A 2-foot spirit level might not provide the necessary precision for this task.

    If fixing 12mm plasterboards to a timber stud the most suitable fixing to use is?

    • A.

      50mm Ovals

    • B.

      35mm Stainless steel screws.

    • C.

      35mm Drywall Screws

    • D.

      75mm Roundheads

    Correct Answer
    C. 35mm Drywall Screws
    Explanation
    The most suitable fixing to use when fixing 12mm plasterboards to a timber stud is 35mm Drywall Screws. Drywall screws are specifically designed for attaching plasterboards to wooden studs, providing a secure and reliable hold. The 35mm length is appropriate for the 12mm thickness of the plasterboard, ensuring that the screw does not penetrate too far into the stud or leave the plasterboard loose. Using drywall screws in this scenario would result in a strong and durable installation.

    What must you do to a door, so it does not catch on the frame/lining when it closes shut? 

    • A.

      Plane the arris's off

    • B.

      Plane a leading Edge on it.

    • C.

      Fit the handles

    • D.

      Fit the Architrave

    Correct Answer
    B. Plane a leading Edge on it.
    Explanation
    By planing a leading edge on the lock side allows clearance when swinging shut, you can also plane a leading edge to the hinge side, this helps to stop the door binding. As the size of the door gets wider say with 45mm or 54mm doors you really do need this leading edge especially if it has brush strips.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Which 2 tools would you use when fixing Guttering?

    • A.

      Cordless Screwdriver

    • B.

      Block Plane

    • C.

      String Line

    • D.

      Marking Gauge

    • E.

      25mm Chisel

    • F.

      Claw Hammer

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Cordless Screwdriver
    C. String Line
    Explanation
    When fixing guttering, two tools that would be useful are a cordless screwdriver and a string line. A cordless screwdriver is necessary for removing and replacing screws that hold the guttering in place. The string line is used to ensure that the guttering is properly aligned and level. This helps to ensure that the guttering functions correctly and prevents any water leakage. The other tools listed, such as the block plane, marking gauge, 25mm chisel, and claw hammer, are not typically used for fixing guttering.

    A compound mitre is cut at just 1 angle.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    A compound miter is not cut at just one angle. It is a type of cut that involves both a miter angle and a bevel angle. The miter angle determines the horizontal angle of the cut, while the bevel angle determines the vertical angle of the cut. This allows for more complex and precise cuts, especially when working with crown molding or other angled cuts. Therefore, the statement that a compound miter is cut at just one angle is false.

    What size Ply wood would be most suitable for a Pipe Boxing ?

    • A.

      6mm

    • B.

      18mm

    • C.

      22mm

    • D.

      25mm

    Correct Answer
    A. 6mm
    Explanation
    A 6mm plywood would be most suitable for a pipe boxing because it is thin enough to be easily cut and shaped to fit around the pipes, while still providing enough strength and stability to support the structure. Thicker plywood such as 18mm, 22mm, or 25mm would be unnecessary and potentially more difficult to work with for this purpose.

    When building a stud frame I must add ________ inbetween the studs to strengthen wall

    Correct Answer
    noggins
    Explanation
    In order to strengthen a stud frame wall, it is necessary to add noggins in between the studs. Noggins are horizontal pieces of timber that are placed between the vertical studs to provide additional support and stability to the wall structure. They help to prevent the studs from twisting or warping and enhance the overall strength and rigidity of the wall. By adding noggins, the stud frame becomes more robust and capable of withstanding various loads and forces.
