  • Posted in thread: redneck cattle gate on 03-30-2015 at 06:31 PM
    I would not call that a redneck cattle gate. I would title it an Archimedian Cattle Gate. Very
    ingenious use of lever arms! After all, Archimedes said he could move the world with a long
    enough lever ...

  • Posted in thread: Repairing water damaged ceiling on 03-13-2015 at 06:49 PM
    This all depends on how much water damage there is. Start by using a straight edge and scoring
    on each side of the tape. Then remove the tape with a putty knife. If what is underneath is
    still OK and ...

  • Posted in thread: Dewalt battery charger on 02-22-2015 at 02:41 PM
    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 01:51 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...

  • Posted in thread: How do I repair lifting at corner beads? on 02-16-2015 at 05:30 PM
    I am assuming this is a metal corner bead, as these were used mostly in years past (and still a
    great corner bead too). If so, simply chip off any loose material and skim over the top.
    All-purpose USG...

  • Posted in thread: Cracking ceiling and wall on 02-10-2015 at 06:33 PM
    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
    you repair...

  • Posted in thread: How should I proceed with this plaster ceiling? on 01-10-2015 at 10:47 AM
    I am seeing drywall, not plaster. You do not necessarily have to rip everything out - you can
    do a butt joint of the new drywall onto the old - see Around the existing fan you may need to
    remove dry...

  • Posted in thread: Is my drill battery charger ruined? on 10-05-2014 at 08:11 AM
    If it for a ni-cad battery, don't feel too bad if it is wrecked. If you have to get a new
    charger and drill with the newer lithium battery, you will be thankful that this one got
    ruined. The new lithi...

  • Posted in thread: First Homeowner Project Ever: Changing Ceiling Texture on 09-27-2014 at 08:17 AM
    I don't think you can remove popcorn by wetting and scraping if it has been painted. At any
    rate, I would go with smooth ceilings and walls any day - repairing, cleaning, and painting a
    smooth surface...

  • Posted in thread: Long distance landline phone services? on 08-28-2014 at 02:03 PM
    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 ...
