    Just out of curiosity, what's your procedure for cutting those panels?

    Do you stack the two adjacent boards and cut both simultaneously, or cut one then draw a line on the next?

    Once cut, you...

    The newer brushless battery blowers are pretty impressive. As a comparison, the highest-end Stihl "professional" non-backpack blower claims 444 CFM. All the battery models by Ego do significantly...

    Ego. Clearly a more refined, premium product than the other options.

    That is the correct rear bracket, but you don't have to use it if you can use the screws on the sides of the slides.

    Notice that the rear bracket allows some left-right play between the slide and...

    Any chance you bought it with a credit card that provides additional warranty protection (or warranty extension)?

    The reality is, it's a piece of consumer-grade electronics - it is not intended to...

    Interesting. It sounds like a certain fixed overhead wattage is used by the car, even when parked. Charging at a very low current (regardless of 120V or 240V) results in that overhead being a larger...

    I'm curious where you heard this. I don't think it's correct. It certainly takes more time at 120V, but is not less efficient.

    Patrick, not sure if you're aware of this, but the ETS EC 125 and 150 appear to be identical except for the price and the default size pad that ships with it. You can take an EC125 and put the 150...

    Nice, Glenn! I think I have the exact same mini-split. Are you flaring the cut ends of the lineset, yourself?

    CA glue (superglue)

    This sounds like such a dumb question, but, for the life of me, I cannot figure out superglue (CA glue).

    It seems to stay wet forever? It turns white-ish and powdery? Doesn't really seem to hold...

    So what is the best practice with oily rags? I thought a closed metal can was correct, but according to the OP's picture, no?

    I have the Ego mower, blower, and snow blower. All are great.

    That said, if you are already on another battery system, there may be other options that are more convenient (e.g. Makita makes ones...

    It's not likely that they are being charged during peak A/C hours. In fact, they are a great solution to "load balancing" - a bunch of EVs charging at night makes use of energy from base load power...

    A simple 240V, 20A outlet is sufficient to get a reasonable rate of charge (e.g. 15 miles of charge in 1 hr of charging). The cost to install a 240V outlet is not anywhere near that of a fast...

    As a German/Austrian company, they don't seem to have the "customer is always right" attitude that Americans often expect, which can feel a bit "off putting". Hammer is also the low-cost brand - your...

    Power (watts) is volts times amps. A transformer can increase or decrease voltage, but if you increase the voltage, you decrease the amperage (and vice versa).

    It doesn't have quite the power of a gas mower, but then again, it's super...

    Hmm, my local supplier has white and black limba for sale for pretty reasonable (it's S4S so sold by the linear foot, and I recall it being ~$6/linft, which works out to <$10/bdft)
