    This is great advice and is what I do. You can read the cap rating off the capacitor and buy a replacement off Amazon. Usually for less than $20.

    I was successful in staining red oak black by first soaking it in strong tea then letting it day. The next day I applied the two week old steel wool in 5% vinegar solution.

    I have a Ryobi backpack blower and used to have a Ryobi string trimmer too. They both work fine but both suffer from the same design flaw. The flexible plastic gas lines are just pressure fitted over...

    Mike, I did a mini split for heat & cool comfort. I went from a window mounted ac for cooling and a 1500 watt space heater for heating. The window AC did fine, but it did take a long time to cool the...

    The answer is yes, sort of. Mine came with a 16ft line-set. The manual said I could shorten it, but it required a minimum of 10ft to function properly. I don't remember the max but the manual had a...

    Growing up, there was a field behind our house that was a mix of grass and clover. I still remember it being full of honeybees when the clover was in bloom.

    Decided that since the anode was less than $20. I'd give it a try. The hardest part was getting the old one out. I had to use a breaker bar with a cheater pipe on the end to get it free. Thought I...
