    Thank you for this. The anode on my old water heater is the 17/16s to 27mm hex head, with 3/4NPT male threads below the hex. My boiler guy recognized the 3/4 NPT from a dozen feet away.

    The manual for the water heater calls for 1 1/16" socket. I have no earthly idea why I have a 1 1/16" NAPA socket in my toolbox. None. No idea how it got there, but it was a titch too small. I...

    I should mention my boiler guy and I did try to break the anode in the new water heater loose earlier Thursday evening, no dice. Shipping weight on the item is 125#, it had 50 gallons of water in it...

    Water heater anode school please

    My house is fairly chaotic this week as the boiler and the water heater are getting replaced, which requires moving the washer and dryer across the garage during the ordeal.

    I don't find this to be true at my shop with my Auriou grain 10s. I might be using them wrong, but in Doug For and poplar, taking a diagonal stroke I am finding visibly smooth surfaces more or less...

    I agree with Edwin this is never a wasted discussion. I don't want to be "that guy" that set his house on fire doing whatever thing. I have never used RMC, but with both epoxy and BLO my standard...

    One thing I have seen implied but not explicated here - adding a cyclone adds a load to the motor. It takes work, watts, horsepower, whatever unit you want to use, to get that volume of air spinning...

    I kinda hate to bump an old thread. However, I found the correct buckets. My orange/ blue cyclone as above bit the dust a few weeks ago and I have been on a bit of a tear chopping up buckets and...

    Another beautiful thing (or two) all by itself. And it is just part of a larger whole, also a simple thing made beautiful with time and thought. I will sit back down now.

    My plan (when I turn the pager off) is to
    1) Turn off the main breaker - it is outdoors with the electric meter.
    2) Put a...

    Poked around in the old threads a bit, most of those are about petroleum staining.

    What I have is a 40 years old house. We have lots and lots of iron in our water. Under the water heater and...
