    I thought Pl 300 was for foamboard. I used PL 400 under the cement board I attached to my subfloor in my house under tiles. Never had a problem with it.

    I have a large, I think 2TB SSD connected to my Dish Network receiver. I could easily fill it up. The old HD died after a few months even though it was rated for use in a DVR. I think the motor...

    The base on my BS is not flat. I don't have it on a mobile base so it's easy to tell. It's not off by much but it had the same rocking no matter where it was placed in my shop. I ended up putting...
