    The 'active' ingredient in good brands is zinc oxide. My dermatologist insists I use that. So, after all the solvents and other liquids evaporate you are left with that and other solids. I'd try...

    IMHO, there is no need to remove grout. Just block the opening to prevent 'updraft' of sewer gas. Treat the grout with bleach or bathroom cleanser. Then use a hair dryer, heat gun or fan and time...

    My understanding also. The hot metal actually burns into and bonds to the painted surface and won't wash off. That lead to a tiny speck of rust. Lots of specks grow into a nasty stain and...

    Just storing it any old way is sure death. Burying it in an unsealed concrete vault is surer death. That's what was done in Tulsa. Beautiful 57 Plymouth turned to rust by extreme humidity.

    I no longer have a SawStop, but going from memory, the one I had used a motor with a thermal breaker, like most quality motors used on power tools. That is where the responsibility for protecting...

    That was gonna be my suggestion too. With a slight mod, a 4 or 4.5" grinder is easier to control. Diamond blades are cheap now. Use it on a
    GFCI protected circuit and use as much water as you...

    I agree, roller would be a good final step, but a concrete rake, the big wide hoe that us used during pours, would be a good first step to move stuff into the low spots.

    JMHO, but that warning is only needed if you load the wire to its limit, or nearly so. Heat will not be generated in any appreciable amount when drawing 4-5 amps for a sander through a 14ga wire for...

    Just got back on and read this. The instructions on my can of CWF said to remove any product that remained on the surface after several minutes of soak time. So, no surface film left.

    I second Flood, CWF. Nasty smell when applying but works well. Friend of mine has a house clad in cedar. When installed it was coated with CWF and about every 3 or 4 years it gets pressure washed...

    Just a comment on home inspections and the 'normal' process. Most, if not all buyers, will request an independent inspection as part of the purchase contracting process. That may occur even if you...

    search for 'clamp on ammeter'. There are many choices, 15-$big, depending on your needs.

    Caveat, for your intended use, the labeled specs on tools and motors will provide enough accuracy. Just...

    Agree with all of that. Most duplex recepts now are rated 15A and 20A pass through. That is the reason that side wiring is hard for 12ga as most get 14ga. The installation gets easier if you...

    You can add pecan or hickory to your list of 'strong enough' woods. The two are so much alike they are usually sold as one wood.

    I took a look at the saw in question and noted that it has an aluminum base. Easy to cut with wood working tools. In that case I'd consider mounting a very good straightedge to the base and...

    Another alternative, only if you don't need the full depth of cut that it offers. I had a similar problem and made a sub base, similar to what you would make for a router out of a scrap of solid...

    Definite maybe! It all depends on the stain. Surface or penetrating. All you can do is try a few things to remove it. I'd start with a commercial strength bathroom cleaner, one that purports to...

    one word fix: Catpaw

    It'll leave a divot in the OSB but you can pull the nail when it's driven under the nail head. Works unless dealing with gun driven (countersunk) nails in 7/16 sheathing. Then you may just have a...
