    Have you considered closed cell sprayed foam insulation? You get complete coverage and depth
    which is superior in R value to insulation batts. Why use rigid and batts when you can simply
    fill the enti...

  • Posted in thread: How to remove broken and stuck faucet handles? on 08-05-2017 at 05:17 PM
    Yes, the puller should do it. However, the built up corrosion might make it harder to remove

    will adhere ...

    with some channel lock pliers. Protect the plumbing with a simple trick .... cut pieces from an
    old hose ...

  • Posted in thread: Which circular saw blade(s), would you recommend? on 12-20-2016 at 12:30 PM
    I use the Diablo for general purposes .... although the 24 tooth version is rough. I prefer
    better finishes on my cuts, so go with more teeth. There is hardly a difference other than
    price with the ot...

    Oh boy ... siding ... sounds like fun. Welcome, ask questions, post pics, send beer.
