Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 16, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta int novvmowr Keep them well lubricated HOME OF THE WEEK Cold locks cause winter problems By MR. FIX An older generation the days when lobody locked his but .hose days are gone and today ocks are very much a part of nodern living. The problem is .hat sometimes you nave trou- unlocking one or more of .hose locks. There are all kinds of my number of makes and nodels. Working principles ire pretty much the and maintenance are similar for all of hem. A balky lock is more likely to be a problem in cold weather than warm since locks can freeze. While frozen locks are more common on car doors they can occur on 'the outside door of your house as well. Chip away the ice from the lock if there is any. If you can warm up the key in a flame it will help thaw the lock cylinder when you insert it. Dipping the key in alcohol may help. Work slowly. Turn the key gradually. If the tumblers in the lock are KEY WILL HELP THAW FROZEN LOCK e USE GRAPHITE TO LUBRICATE LOCK KEEP SNOW BRUSHED AWAY FROM LOCK TRYCRcPCHET HOOK TO REMOVE BROKEN KEY frozen it will take a little time to get them loose. Keeping the snow brushed away from the lock will make trouble less likely. Any lock exposed to the weather may give you trouble which is another good reason for hav- ing a storm door. Locks will work more easily if they are kept lubricated. Do not use oil or grease since or- dinary lubricants will cause the lock parts to become gum- my. Use powdered graphite which can be sprayed into the lock. A lock that works easily is not so likely to cause a binding or a broken key. A key may bind for other reasons too. If the cylinder has turned slight- ly in the face plate you will have trouble. Loosen the setscrew and line up the cylinder again. A poorly made duplicate key will also bind. Sometimes a key will break off in the lock. Try holding the remaining part of the key tightly against the part remaining in the lock and then try turning it. If this fails use a piece of stiff wire with a hook bent in the or a fine crochet and insert the wire over the top of the key and pull the broken piece out. The pieces then can be used to make a duplicate. If you cannot remove the piece this way you will have to remove the entire cylinder. the setscrew and then unscrew the cylinder from the face plate and tap out the Factory-built units make it easy A hearth for your home A fireplace is to dream md dreams of a real wood- jurning fireplace can now ttme true for Canada's home nakers because of the levelopment of factory-built systems that make it possible to install a fireplace is a weekend do-it-yourself jroject. And yet for young lome makers' these nodern fireplaces cost but a faction of yesterday's fireplaces. Today's concept of fireplac- ing is a factory-built unit that comes complete from hearth to chimney top. Requiring no footings or special it can be set in place on a wood floor and against any kind of wall. This modem fireplace can be positioned almost anywhere in a room against a across a corner or as a room-dividing element. After the finishing can match any room rang- ing from the simple effect to the more traditional masonry and marble finishes. Gas fireplaces are also gain- ing in popularity for living and rumpus rooms. They offer the charm and fascination of a wood-burning fire with the ease and realism of push button control. Location plans for gas fireplaces within the home are very flexible. Built into or out from any enhancing a room put across a corner or hanging from the they provide a striking conversation piece. Gas fireplaces are set directly on the sub-floor or suitably constructed wooden platforms and against studding and combustible wall material. Herald- At Home remaining You can prevent breaking the key to taking care to insert it all the way before turning it. A well lubricated lock will prevent binding and in turn prevent breaking. SomeUnes a key will fit the lock but will bind and break when you try to turn it. Similar looking keys should be well marked. the key does not make the bolt move it may mean trou- ble with the door. Try moving the strike plate cutting out some wood behind the opening. If this doesn't you may have to re- hang the door.

WATER LILIES It is quite some time since I have written on Water Lilies. Most everyone likes these delightful flowers and there seems to be more and more interest shown in them. before you can grow them you require a so for those who do not know just where or how to here is some helpful information. First of you have to decide on how big a pool you the shape and size and etc. You can start either in a small or large whatever you fancy. Curved lines are more artistic than straight ones if you are using or you may just wish to start with a half- barrel such as used for which has an inside measurement of 21 inches. This is the way my late hus- band and I got started and with a bushel filled with the proper mixture and a lily supplied by a we really felt proud of this new venture. As the summer went we were thoroughly delighted with the so elated in that it wasn't long until we ventured into making a large cement which held four lilies and other aquatic plants. The number of lilies that you grow will be governed by the size of the pool. Water garden ex- perts recommend not less than three feet between more or less. Some people use but for something more per- concrete is much better. The following method is along the simplest lines to making a lily pool. You will receive such a lot of enjoy- ment from it when it is finished. Location is very im- portant for these beautiful plants require all the sunshine they can so try to avoid being in the shade of trees or anything else that would rob the pool of this vital necessity. When you have decided where and what you dig a hole 6 inches deeper and 12 inches longer and wider than the desired finished size of the pool. It is a good idea to line the excavation with heavy plastic to help keep the concrete .clean when being poured. On the put a layer of gravel or sand approximately 6 inches deep. Insert 6 inch spikes about 12 inches leaving three inches of the spike sticking out Beeswax Each cell of a honeycomb has six sides. The walls are of an inch thick but can support 30 times their own of the gravel or plastic. Starting about 9 inches from the top of the drive in the continuing all the way down to the bottom. Pour a three inch layer of prepared concrete on the bottom ready-mix concrete is ideal for When set sufficiently to hold your weight when standing on a proceed as Starting on the at the edge of the bot- tom layer of trowel a 3 inch wide by 3 inch thick strip of concrete all around the pool. building up successive bands of concrete to the upper rim of the pool. Do not cover the heads of the spikes. Finish up this layer a couple of inches below ground level at the edgq of the pool. Fasten re-inforcing wire to the end of the spikes to cover the entire pool and bot- Apply another layer of concrete following the same technique for the second coat as for the first. Do not allow the concrete to completely dry out before applying more concrete or you will have trou- ble with cracking. Each layer must form a with the concrete previously put on. When the second coat is com- fill in the top two inches all the way around with concrete and immediately set in rocks for a rim while the concrete is still wet. Place the rocks carefully in an irregular fashion to give a natural appearance. Pools require to be con- ditioned before any plants or fish can be put into them. A simple method is to leave the pool for a month before using it. and then fill with water and let stand overnight and then repeating two or three times. If you are in a A kitchen that works A kitchen should be located close to the place where food will be served says Onalee home design specialist for the Manitoba department of agriculture. It should be accessible directly to the family service door and garage. The front should be easy to get but preferably out of view of the kitchen. The kitchen should also be out of view of the liv- ing room. Doors should be located so traffic bypasses the meal preparation centres. Complete centres are necessary for a successful they are determined by the work performed with tli sink and fill pool with water after com- letting stand for several then drain. Repeat two or three times and them scrub with a mixture of one part vinegar to ten parts water to neutralize the alkali in the cement.
