    Good day John,

    That is being discussed. I never had one and wondering if I need one, but now would be the time. I would really like to have one of these attached to it.

    I guess you’ve never been to Bermuda. A coffee and bagel there will run ya $20. The national park tents are kinda pricey. St. John also very pricey due to the stuff having to land in St. Thomas...

    The foam insulation is a glass reinforced and it does offer some support under the metal- nothing near wood, of course, but it at least backs it up. With all the other stuff on my roof, including...

    I agree, but our code requires purlins for some reason- likely they never thought of other options.
  10. My roof is the strongest on the planet. Prove me wrong.

    As you have seen, Im replacing the tin on my roof, and also upgrading it to bomb-proof status. The roof is timber framed with this unusual ring beam in the middle making a square- one beam on each...

    Thanks. My entire downstairs has exposed ceilings to the heart pine floors upstairs, but unfortunately they were painted long ago- probably from day 1. I wanted to also do the adjoining kitchen...

    These doors were doweled with the JessEm doweling jig I bought from
    another creeker. I was skeptical, but really loved it. I also used it to repair some mahogany doors. The repair was doweled for...
  13. Cypress ceiling and treated beams

    We are redoing the roof and the termites got to this part of the porch roof, which was an addition around the 1960s. Original porch was all wood. They replaced it with poured concrete uprights and...

    What is the average price of nozzles. I might be interested but would want to get large spreader nozzles. Website says you have to email for price. Can you roughly tell me a range for nozzles? ...

    To bend the material, you really have to be trying to bend it. It is like a car fender. I mic’d it at 1/64th inch.

    So now that I’m home, it turns out the piece had a date stamped at the bottom. Also has a “to” and “from” stamp that is hard to see.

    If that is truly the date, then this has been up there for...

  19. Galvanized roof was at least laid in 1952 or earlier

    I am replacing my roof. The galvanized is stamped with Tennessee Coal Iron and Railroad Co. They went out of business in 1952. Keep in mind that I live three blocks from the ocean and since 1952...

    This is true. A proper install includes clean out valves where you can hook up a back-flush system. What I do is use a submersible pump in a Home Depot bucket full of white vinegar. I back-flush...

    We have an unwritten rule that if something you are throwing away is still good, you put it next to the dumpster. I have given and taken many times in this manner.

    I have the Grizzly 12” jointer, and I love it. I have room for it, and I appreciate fully not having room and wanting this combo planer instead of two larger tools. I would say if it is all you can...

    I almost exclusively buy rough sawn lumber and mill it myself. I did this even when I had a lunchbox planer and portable table saw. Now I have a 12 jointer, 15 planer, and a Unisaw. I would...

    I did not know you could use pvc to vent a gas water heater. It seems it would melt. I learned something new. (No sarcasm intended there.) True that indoor installation of a tankless requires a...
