    I replaced a front hub on my truck. I got the cheapest, Chinese one first. It lasted a couple of weeks before it started making noise. I returned that one, and upgraded to the Mexican one. No...

    In painting a wall, next to the wood trim, you put the masking tape on the trim, paint that edge of the wall, and pull the masking tape off while the paint is still wet. I'm sure it will work the...

    Revelation on cutting in room trim

    I stumbled on the fastest, and easiest way to perfectly cut in casing, and baseboards this morning. I put up a new ceiling, and needed to paint the Dining Room in a lake rental house.

    The grout being wet shouldn't harm it. I'd just hit it with Clorox cleanup, and dry it, or let it dry. I'd stuff some paper towels in the pipe opening, to keep sewer gas out of the house, and let a...

    I built one, years ago, for my Son, who got the plans online. Sorry, don't remember the details enough to matter, but he still uses it. There should be plenty of free plans online.

    I think I paid about 350 for that David White 47 years ago. Money was worth a lot more then. You could buy a new car for 4k. Surprisingly, even the foam in the case is still in great shape. It...

    Should work fine. I like my Builders Level, for building stuff, more than a laser. I like a laser for site work, but the optical one can see fractions between 1/16" lines on a ruler.
