    It’s very common in ranches-on-slabs, at least in the Midwest, as attic space is typically unconditioned, so water lines can’t go there due to freezing, and horizontal runs of water lines through...

    If you only spray with an occasional rattle can, you’ll likely never come anywhere near the LEL of the solvent in your spray booth. You may not want to be in there due to the intensity of the fumes,...

    If you’ve ever been into the guts of an automatic transmission, and saw the size of the park pin…you’d set the parking brake, especially on hills.

    Sand, CLEAN, and prime. (I had to add something…)

    Sanding need only be a quick scuff with 120-180 grit, depeinding on how thick your topcoat paint is. The thinner the coat, the finer the grit...

    I’ve always tightened keyless chucks by gripping the chuck and running the drill. And I’ve found that it almost always needs to be tightened by running the drill on the lowest speed setting where it...

    Andrew, I was a painting contractor for nearly 20 years. I have put tens of thousands of gallons of paint through airless sprayers. I almost never held the gun 12” from the surface—4-6” was far...

    I use it for myself, but automatically convert for others’ sake when communicating. I’ve been doing that so long that it’s second nature.

    I’ve always known 12am to be midnight, and 12pm to be noon. If you say 12am and 12pm don’t exist, what does 12:00 mean?

    Indiana went to DST in about ‘05. Prior to that, most of the state was EST year-round, except the NW corner and the SW corner, which are in the Central Time Zone, and I think they followed DST. If...

    The least I ever paid for gas was in 1998 when the oil industry had issues. I filled up my dual-tank F150 (usually about 36-37 gallons) for $28—$0.799/gal. The lowest price I ever remember seeing...

    When I put stuff out at the curb, hoping for it to go, I don’t put a “FREE” sign on it. People think it’s junk then; that’s why it’s free, and it will often sit. I put “$20” on it or something,...

    I am loathe to hire out work. However, I have removed a fair amount of flooring over the years, and $900 to remove 430sf of vinyl flooring and underlayment sounds like a deal, especially if that...

    12-16’ boards probably won’t fit well in that mini-bus, either—I bet you only have about 10’ behind the front doors. For me, the potential problems would be that it has spent 15 years in the snow...

    I think you’re still missing what the role of bleeder vs. non-bleeder is. A bleeder simply flows air even when the trigger is NOT pulled—bad for a compressor, good for a turbine. It has nothing to...

    We call that “dry brining.” And it’s our preferred method, along with smoking to 160F internal temperature (it sits for a while then, but it’s still safe based on time-at-temp.”)
