    I had done what Kev posted about texts. They are put in a separate list, but I still get the text chime alert that I'm getting one, so I have to look for nothing.

    I know about blocking individual numbers, but it would be nice to be able to block texts unless they were in the Contacts list, like you can do for phone calls. I'm never bothered with phone calls...

    I needed some 5/8" x 9" galvanized ones last week. I didn't spend any time shopping for them longer than typing in the Amazon search window. I think it was $60 for 25. They were on our deck in two...

    I don't know who makes them, but they're pretty good for the cost. We have some in bedrooms of a rental house, and they look fine.

    I never had one that wasn't completely worn out after five or six years, so I never saw that problem.

    Yes, but can mean the difference between starting with 400, or 2,000. If it only needs 2,000, it won't take long.

    Those switches just plug into a receptacle, and are easy to change, if it's like the ones I'm used to. Electronics cleaner might keep it going for a while, but once they get intermittent, I'd just...

    I have used Tremont cut nails. They don't have as much taper as what box stores sell as cut nails these days, but still more than I'd like. I'm fortunate to still have some mostly full 50 pound...

    I don't think brake cleaner is Acetone. I keep a gallon of Acetone for various jobs, and brake cleaner doesn't have the smell, or evaporate as quickly. Acetone will take some paints off, but brake...
