    Cut a short length of 4" pvc, slip it over the flange, and then use the rubber cap you bought. If the plastic spacer is too loose, cut a kerf in it to allow the cap to compress it a bit.

    Probably overkill, but I used SW premium wall and wood primer on mine and it worked very well. I did not bother to topcoat it as I only wanted to improve light reflectivity and a single coat of the...

    You can generally add artists universal oil colors to oil based stains without danger (at least in reasonable quantities) and I find it is often easier to alter colors that way than mixing factory...

    I don't know of a two axis unit, but I'd be tempted to try rigging up two wixey units at 90 degrees to each other. What I don't know without playing around with the one I have is whether it would...

    Another way to beef up the holding power is to grind off the tapered points of the screws so you have full depth threads all the way to the tip. This is especially useful when you have relatively...

    I prefer the first method with a couple of tweaks from the drawing you included. First, I run the flashing a little longer so it extends past the ends of the head trim. Second, I make the end dam...

    I have the rigid and have found it to work very well and to be an excellent value. Dust collection is only so-so, and I doubt it would hold up to heavy production use, but I think hard to beat for...

    Waste fittings have a 2% slope build into the fitting.

    Asbestos free vermiculite is (at least around here) easy to find at garden centers. It will be clearly marked asbestos free. Precautions for the dust are certainly a good idea, and not just for the...

    I've been to appointments where I am told when I arrive that the provider had an emergency and is running late, and given the opportunity to reschedule or wait. I think that's a professional way to...

    I did something similar and it works fine. The track fills up with sawdust fairly quickly, even with decent dust collection, but it's easy enough to brush it out or blow it out. Just leave the far...

    I have no issue, open the page, fill in email, hit submit...all works for me. Try a different browser?
  13. True repair couplings have no stop in the middle...

    True repair couplings have no stop in the middle and are also not tapered as much so they will slide over the pipe completely. But they are tricky to install on PVC because the solvent used to weld...
  14. Once you're in Ohio you'll be going right by...

    Once you're in Ohio you'll be going right by Baird Brothers. It's a great yard, but definitely focused more toward typical hardwood lumber yard business and mostly local species, so I doubt you'll...

    I have the drill/driver, 2 or 3 of the impact drivers, the flexiclick set, and the jigsaw. The palm router is on my wish list. I use them constantly and only switch to bigger tools for the big...

    You're always better off running the largest "pipe" you can as close to the machines as possible, and that goes double when you're talking about flex, since it has higher resistance to flow than...

    I didn't find it hard to adjust. The locals can always tell when a driver is from the US....they'll be driving along on a sunny day and their windshield wipers will go on when they are about to make...

    I'm not sure a powerTwist will work with the variable diameter sheaves the SS uses to change speeds. In any case, I don't believe you need to disassemble the unit to replace the belt, although there...

    I've not seen companies that actually tunnel under a slab to replace pipe; as you say, it would be difficult to backfill. I suppose you could pump a thin concrete grout into the tunnel.

    The premium underlayments help, but keep in mind the surface is essentially formica, so you will always have contact noise and the floor reflects sound very well so you can get echo effects if there...

    I have an older version of the lenox high tension frame. It's seen fairly hard use and has held up well. You can put a lot of tension on the blade and you can store a few extra blades inside the...

    When I do this, I cut the sheetrock where the new wall will be framed, and then slip sheetrock corner clips on the cut edge of the sheetrock before framing the new wall. Once I have a stud at the...

    It looks like a regular two jaw puller would work, but if the holes in the fan are too small for the puller arms, then search for "thin two jaw puller" for many options with thin arms. You're going...

    T+2 has teflon in it, which reduces the torque needed to tighten the joint. Not really an issue on the small stuff we play with. It also can be pressurized immediately on any size pipe and to any...
