    rogerknapp, thanks for the insight. I have never worked on HVAC before, and had planned to hire

    There is a post with this subject from 2011, and last reply yesterday. Old but I have a similar
    problem. I know this forum is DIY, and I usually do, but in this case I am looking for info to

    Thanks for the reply Work. Where I can't clean down to sound wood with a wire brush I will try
    wood hardener. I will check with Kelly-Moore as to whether I should spot prime bare redwood
    with oil base...

    My 1951 house has redwood siding and has lead based primer under three coats of paint. The

    Thanks all. It does seem to help.

    The problem is likely the paint. My wife bought Clark+Kensington for the walls and Royal
    Interiors for trim (both by Ace Hardware, semi-gloss). Both, but particularly the Royal
    Interiors, show very he...

    Thanks for responding Old/New but the tool is the problem. I have a drywall saw the works well
    for complex shapes. The problem is how can I trace the complex outline of the back of a round
