    Tom Bender,

    My first serious job after when I moved to CA from London was very labor intensive, I once worked 90 hours in a week. I was, correspondingly, a serious coffee drinker. I didn't...

    John Matulionis,

    This is a surprisingly tough design as control of the sliding, tilting, plus having the drawer be supported when tilted require a precise geometry.

    greg Forster,

    I'd suggest first a compression test on all cylinders.

    This sounds as though the engine may need new rings. If it were the head gasket it would be a steam engine not oiled plugs....

    Dan Freidrichs,

    Yes, I'm convinced the upsides of the dual handrail outweigh the downsides.

    Dan Friedrichs,

    The handrail or not decision depends on a number of factors. If there is an open permit and ongoing inspections, there's a high probability it won't get signed off without a...
