Wow, I did not know that. I thought the only things there are: the Zoo, a bus stop to Malaysia and the portal to Mordor.

BA-DUMP-BUMP...

plexiglas plate for fridge to cut

Postby magilie » Sun, 04 Sep 2011 11:26 am

Dear all,

One plexiglas plate is missing in our fridge and we would like to find one. We are looking for a hardware shop to find a plexiglas plate and have it cut at the proper dimension. Do you know where we can go in Singapore ?

Thank you very much for your help.

Cutting - not sure, but a very decent choice of plexi or other acrylic plates is carried out by Art Friend.

@magilie

there is a very good place for everything plexi: www.dama.com.sg

I use them all the time... they can cut whatever you want and they have dedicated "consultants" who can help you in your design and choice. Quite cheap as well...

Thanks! Although the location seems to be designed to be as inconvenient as possible if you don't have a car. Is the Changi Rd (Kembangan) outlet any good?

And does anybody know of even a small, bite-size hardware store around Orchard/Newton/Novena/Toa Payoh? (But a step above from the dusty light bulbs and pink Chinese plastic crap corner shops.)


Hey jpatokal, there is one in Novena! Homefix is in United Square, basement level, entrance located inside Cold Storage (I know, why so hidden?!)

That's ok you helped me. I live in Novena and was in the hardware store next to Cold Storage in Novena Square. No hammers. No level. Hopefully better luck at United Square! Thanks!

(Now to find a plumber!)

Whilst on the subject of hardware !- does anyone know what they 'paint' on those slate tiles on driveways / balconies etc which restores their faded look ? Looks like some kind of sealant ?

Yeah, found the same.. no hammers.

But, if you go to one of those small asian stores that sells pots, pans, soap, and just about everything, you should find a hammer as well. There are several of these stores when you walk around AMK shopping area.

And they stock a lot of other bits and pieces that you would find in home fix, but a bit cheaper.

I did see a basic/small level at the Japanese $2 shop at Ion.

I am planning to paint a flat this weekend and well, as others have posted - I know where home fix and self fix outlets are... but I just don't believe that the average Singaporean pays those prices.

Anyone a good tip for a paint and paint tools shop?

Also little india has an area of timber merchants and they will cut to size. There was one that was cutting up a set when I was there last.
