Anyone know if this is a standard size sink spindle from looking at it? I need to replace a couple and I've only done wall ones so this looks a bit more fat and stumpy.

And will I need gogo gaget arms to hold something under the size while I undo that? Looking at the state of it... Could be some "fun"

Looks std to me, there should be an '0' ring inside there as well. I would recommend you go to Bunnings and buy a seat cutter, it is a very handy tool when overhauling water taps.

This is a tool you need. I borrow my mates one when working under sinks. It’s worth the money.

If the vinegar doesn't cut it, hunt down an environmentally unfriendly washing powder. Full of phosphates and all the other naughties. Full hot cycle with no washing, just a scoop of your new friend.

Gets rid of the buildup like nothing else. It's actually what our washing machine manual says to do monthly if you regularly use fabric softener.
A couple dish washer capsules will clean the clothes washer,just run a hot medium cycle 👍

You do need a home maintenance thread ;)

You have a cupla options. Pics below.
Pic one... unscrew blue from red and rebuild spindle with pic 2 parts (2 x shifters). Also use pic 3 to reset inside red arrow part.

Option 2... replace the whole spindle (blue arrow) with a new one Pic 4. Just take with you to get correct sizing.

Just don't forget to turn the water off at the mains or you will get more than you bargain for. 🤣🤣

Get these. Australian made, and the best you can get. DON'T crank down on them when you turn the taps off (not that you ever should). Just a light touch.

I made my own for ****s and giggles from a car tyre tube and a pipe used as a punch, just swapped the rubber parts works well. See how long it lasts compared to ones we buy.

They seem to change plumbing fixtures every few years so you need to replace the whole kit and kaboodle- bastards.

Only advice I have is to buy good quality tools and gardening equipment Softy..
Some of the jobs we have to do around our homes are a big enough pain in the arse let alone having to put up with un reliable rubbish.
