Thank you and nothing near me (but worth trying) - Clapham is a black hole for any DIY type places (that are open) I have walked the streets trying to find a suitable place and zilch (I am avoiding all transport at the moment as still in a support bubble until we get second jabs)

You probably need a old fashioned hardware store run by an old fella in a brown coat who will look at your bit of paper , go off and rummage and come back with exactly the right thing and charge you pennies.
If you get stuck Iíll try mine .

Thank you - if what arrives tomorrow isnít right I will go off scouting around Clapham/Battersea as nothing around Balham Hill or Nightingale Lane (Clapham Common West Side is were I live and it all still new to me )

Duchy privately sent me a link to such a shop near me (well Battersea - they do like to stretch the Clapham boundary name lol) and actually i will visit just for the smell - some of it will remind me of a strep called Chandlers in Grantham where sacks of fertiliser and paraffin filled the air with heavy scent of yes the 2 Ronnies sketch. The smell of that and petrol lawnmowers remind me of my childhood (year I am that odd guy)
