    Our last set was Maytag Neptune. They worked very well, for a while. After 5 or 6 years the washer quit because the main control board failed. A new one was over $200. It was a common enough fault...

    For the life of me, I can't figure out why CR is still in business. Every couple of years I'll take a look, forgetting how bad it is. Shame on me for wasting my time.

    Cool story, and it looks great too. At least a thousand times better use of epoxy than a 'river table'.

    Don't think if you buy one now that you'll get the same quality. Maytag, like Kitchenaid, used to be a very good appliance brand. Now they're definitely in the lower end for durablilty.

    This morning is was -37C and the high is supposed to be -27C. The average for this time of year is -3C.

    But if it's that hard to get off, it may be glued on with something like epoxy. Then the fun begins.

    And thank goodness! My current front loaders are much quieter and use a small fraction of the water, detergent & energy of what the old set did.

    I agree. I've never felt the need to move a fixture in the 15 years or so since installing the lighting. Hard wired looks soooo much neater too. Cords on ceiling mounted lights do not have a...

    There's a whole lot of hyperbole going on here when people are extolling the virtues of carbon steel over stainless. Yes, generally speaking, carbon steel will take and hold and edge better & longer...

    I would have a real problem buying something that was shipped half way across the world when the local version was right there, even if they were the same price.

    To protect it from glue drips, a coating of Danish oil, or BLO will make it easy to pop of the dried glue while not making the surface slipery. Every couple of years another coat may need to be...

    Gotcha. I saw 'scrapped' & just assumed throw away. The only issue with using glass is that with a large panel of it overhead, breakage would be a safety issue, unless it's tempered.

    I have a couple of those. It's the best cordless vac that I've used. We take one with us to the lake to inflate/deflate a large raft and it works great for that.

    Not sure I'd want to be throwing away a big piece of glass every time it needed cleaning.

    My inclination would be to build a light weight frame and staple 6 mil poly to it. It's easy and cheap to...

    Agreed. There's no such thing as a kitchen knife that won't get to a state of not being 'acceptably sharp' after moderate use. My best kitchen knife is an expensive Henckles and it needs touching up...

    As stated by others, cast iron is very easy to drill & tap. Much easier than steel.

    I have one of those & it is very good. Lots of suction, yet nice & easy to carry around. And very inexpensive.

    Yes there is. Wider blades are also thicker and the thicker blades will break if the wheel diameter is too small.

    Shellac is a great sealer. Fire & flood restoration guys use a smoke seal paint. I don't know the brand, but I've seen it in white and silver, like aluminum paint. My sister bought a house that had...

    Even the Grand National, by today's standards is only moderately quick when compared to a lot of modern everyday sedans. And the '84 vette is way down there with the minivans & econo cars.

    It's funny to compare the performance of the late C3 & C4 Corvettes to modern cars. Even my Accord sedan will run away from most of them.
