Forum rules
1) Please search :pray: before posting. Note that you should also search content-relevant forums (like Food & Drink for those items, and not just WCIF). If there is a content-relevant forum, the thread should be there, not here.

2) Please append your request to an existing thread if you find a stale one, rather than starting a new one. :pray:

3) Please post separately :pray: for each search item, not one thread for "olives and sour cream". Two threads, one for each. This makes it much easier for the moderator to merge your thread with an existing one, if any.

Of course, if you still can't find what you're looking for, please do feel free to post, and we'll do our very best to help you find what you need. If you have any trouble using the search function or the forum, please don't hesitate to send a PM (private message) to the Where Can I find...? moderator asking for help. Happy posting!!! :rainbow:

construction adhesive in taichung

So I went to B&Q and several of my local hardware stores, but I cannot find any construction adhesive. Well, I did find some at B&Q, but it was so old it wouldn't come out of the tube...Does anyone know of another place I might try? Maybe somewhere with a little more of a construction supply orientation?

Oh, I should mention that I don't speak Chinese, so I can't really call around...

Thanks to anyone who might be able to help.

Suggest taking the glue back, get a refund, and buy another brand.

On a related note, because Te Li Wu is taking the piss by pretending to be B&Q, I strongly recommend taking the piss back by buying tools, using them to complete a job, then returning them for a full refund.

Why the hostility? They were B&Q, previously. Acc. to Wiki, B&Q's parent, Kingfisher, decided to sell its stake in the Taiwan B&Q to raise funds to reduce its debt, and so the Taiwan chain, no longer affiliated with B&Q, had to remove "B&Q" from the signs. I don't see any reason to say they are 'taking the piss' or 'pretending' anything.
