  • Posted in thread: favorite / least favorite brand of tools on 11-19-2014 at 04:48 PM
    I have virtually the entire line of battery operated porter cable tools that came with the NiMH
    batteries (18V) and I love them. I treat them like crap and they keep on running. The batteries
    are not ...

    Drewdin, don't be one of those guys :( The previous owner of my house pulled those kinds of
    shenanigans and it was a ROYAL pain trying to figure out what he did and undid and redid. Come
    on buddy for ...

    Were either of them english/british? I knew a guy who told a story of finding a ring circuit in
    Indiana, the hard way. :D

  • Posted in thread: Water rusting fixtures issue! on 11-02-2014 at 09:25 AM
    Hello, If you reference you will see a picture of a 2 year old drain. It was so badly
    corroded that when I went to remove it, it broke in half after all 4 of the spokes broke off.
    That's 2 years... ...

  • Posted in thread: Tub Drain rusted through on 11-02-2014 at 09:17 AM
    WOW well this thing was awful... how does a brand new tub drain rust this badly in 2 years? I
    bought the drain key, and while it did work, the drain broke in half so the top half came out
    but the bott...

  • Posted in thread: Wall AC box fastening on 11-01-2014 at 11:56 AM
    The AC would slide out but there's a screwed in casing or shroud for the unit. I could pull the
    guts but I'd still have the case. ehhh it's a box I'll fasten it this year and figure out
    something for ...

    Neal, Good suggestions and if I was in Indiana or somewhere with snow/sleet/rain all winter I
    definitely put some significant pitch but here in ND it either rains or it snows, and after Oct
    it only sn...

  • Posted in thread: Wall AC box fastening on 10-29-2014 at 11:11 AM
    Here's a photo of the box (not sanded and finished). I put a piece of foam on the edge but it's
    not enough to compensate for the spacing between siding pieces. There's a bit of insulation in
    the back ...

    Neal, I should have noted I found those but they are $16 a piece so $32 to attach both sides to
    the wall. NEVER go zinc plating, even if chromate conversion coated. It's a wood fiberboard
    siding hardy...

    Hi All, As always I wait to the last minute to finish anything. I built a wall ac box because I
    replaced my AC unit and the old box didn't fit. It used some metal wire to hold the box on. I'd
    like to ...
