Well, if you cook your old ni-cad batteries and then switch to the new lithium's you will be
glad they died - the new lithiums are 5000% better. Last longer with more power and charge
faster. If I wer...
Posted in thread: How do I repair lifting at corner beads? on 02-18-2015 at 02:51 PM
If your corner is recessed, you might be able to go over the top with another bead. If after
the new bead is fastened you can pass a 10" wide taping knife with one edge over the corner of
the bead and...

Wow, those sure are not the typical drywall cracks I have ever seen. Almost looks more like a
rupture due to very high sudden stress. For sure you will want to find what caused these before
Posted in thread: How should I proceed with this plaster ceiling? on 01-10-2015 at 11:47 AM

Posted in thread: Is my drill battery charger ruined? on 10-05-2014 at 09:11 AM
If it for a ni-cad battery, don't feel too bad if it is wrecked. If you have to get a new

ruined. The new lithi...

Not sure about your cell phone, but I know for an old cell phone I had it was possible to set
up an antenna on your rooftop and then connect the phone to the antenna. I would think one
could now even ...

Ask around about vanities - I have found that I could not even give my old one away and it was
still in good shape. Contact some contractors.
Posted in thread: How to finish plywood walls on 07-06-2014 at 08:53 PM
I would attach drywall and finish. Since you have no idea what wiring is behind and where, use
drywall screws of length to not pass through the other side of the plywood. Or fasten drywall
to areas wh...
