    Even cutting with the toothed blade, I always cut it face down. The chips from the little bandsaw aren't hot enough to melt into the surface coating.

    There are all sorts of specialized roofing...

    For some cuts, the circular saw is the easiest way. You need full face shield, long sleeves, gloves, and have everything covered. The little chips are hot. The last time I did it, I used a carbide...

    Sorry, not much help. I bought one when I first heard about it here, but I haven't even taken it out of the box. I didn't really "need" it either, but didn't have one.......

    We had an interesting visitor yesterday. She is a French teacher, with about 30 years of experience.

    I asked her how often she went to France. She said she didn't nearly go as much as she did...

    Since the mid '80's, or at least somewhere around then, I've been running full synthetic, and change it every 10,000 miles. When I sold the last truck, a gas burner 3/4 ton, it had 175,000 miles,...
  7. I wish you luck, but I have never been able to...

    I wish you luck, but I have never been able to get a pro quality finish with cheap equipment. I do have some cheap ones, for special purposes like spraying oil based primer, but they don't get used...

    I hadn't kept up with new equipment. It's nice to see that you can use a fine finish tip without having to buy the pro rigs. I used one of those 4 finger trigger guns for several decades, and only...

    You could change the tip guard, to one that will work with a FFLP tip, but the cheap, four finger guns aren't as easy to control as the good guns.
  10. About any pump will work good enough, but you...

    About any pump will work good enough, but you want a gun that will use FFLP (Fine Finish Low Pressure) tips. The cheap guns won't. I don't know how you could do that with your budget. Maybe buy a...

    What exactly do you want to do with one? I have them from 12v handheld, to 24", and horizontal ones for cutting metal.

    The bigger mowers have great spindles. I consider these disposable. Never worn out a bearing. Something else gives first.

    This was my real body work job, this morning. I'll let the epoxy primer cure for a couple of days, and then paint it.

    Not too pretty, but back in business for now, and it doesn't throw anything out where it's not supposed to.

    I live in Air Nike Running shoes. Anything else not only makes my feet get tired, but slows up my movement. No pictures of shops with concrete floors, but there are a couple. The only time I wear...

    How much trouble are you having with that fuse? The only time I've ever heard of one blowing was from someone changing the thermostat without pulling that fuse first.

    Here's my next fix on that mower. This just blew out yesterday. This at 640 hours of rough cutting. Funny that the cheapest, and lightest built mower I have gets the roughest use. I'll build this...

    I think that's to level the deck, front to back, and also keep it from swinging freely, putting slack in the belt.

    I have other mowers, from a 15' batwing, 7" rotary cutter for trails, and other trimming, zero turns, on down to a Snapper bagging mower for the dog yards. I used a chain harrow, years ago, but it...

    I'm sure the dips will settle, but I can do numerous applications, over several years. I had already pulverized it, box bladed it, and Harley Raked it. The ground left now has a lot of river rocks...

    Sounds like you have a broken spindle casting, which will let that casting lean into the tension of the belt.

    Aligning blades doesn't make sense to me. On any that I've had, the blades are...

    We homeschooled both of our children. Our county, in which we live by choice, has/had the second worse record in the State. They both did just fine, in all sorts of "non-scholastic" activities. ...
