Around here the companies do pretty good job. If you hit something not marked then it is between the marker and the utility company as to who pays. You don’t call and try to “sneak on in” and hit something and you might as well just sign over your company to the utilties.September 13, 2015 at 6:28 pm #395857
Sorry I dropped the ball on starting a new thread. Wife’s disability is causing me to have to pick up a little more slack than usual. I have a project that is $25K over budget and getting worse. I also don’t have anything lined up for after this project because the largest local employer just announced large layoffs.
So the only quote I have at the moment is:
I’m getting to old for this s**t!

Seen lots of these around. Always pulling fancy fancy horse trailers.July 11, 2015 at 9:11 pm #367720
I don’t have any specific pics of the lamps but I will go through my holiday pics and see if any are in the background so you can get some idea.July 11, 2015 at 9:08 pm #367717
If I could have done that well with the sharpie I would have been happy. I barely get a soup spoon to my mouth with out a jig or guide of some kind.July 11, 2015 at 7:28 pm #367670
My Uncle makes lamps out of old hand pumps. He mounts the pump to a base and then takes the push rod out and replaces it with a brass conduit for the electrical wires and to mount the light fixture on. The size of the pump determines if it is a desk lamp or floor lamp.July 11, 2015 at 7:17 pm #367669
I Like the concept but they do look spindly to me. I might feel different if I saw one in person and got to “lay hands” on it. I haven’t had that chance yet.July 8, 2015 at 9:22 pm #366003
Mark, what is the design load for a deck? I don’t normally build decks so I am not familiar.July 8, 2015 at 7:08 pm #365909
I have used Renaissance wax on black powder firearms and it is wonderful stuff. I have also used a product called Ballistol. It really works well for rust prevention. It comes in either liquid or aerosol. It was developed by the Germans back during the world wars.July 8, 2015 at 5:18 pm #365825
PS-41 the 12v impact driver. My old 12v driver batteries bit the dust and even the after mkt ones were almost 3/4 as much as a new driver with batteries.July 8, 2015 at 12:38 pm #365696
I went back and looked at the DeWalt. Thought about it some more. And did what I started to do at the vwry get go. I bought a Bosch.July 6, 2015 at 8:08 pm #364765
Sounds like a solution in search of a problem to me.July 6, 2015 at 7:50 pm #364752
You have confirmed my suspicions. This mumbo jumbo they have pulled has eliminated Dewalt from buy list. I don’t like chicanery and subterfuge.July 3, 2015 at 1:21 pm #363208
I got here late. I would have been somebody who also voted for steel roof. One thing I didn’t see mentioned in any of the comments was to be sure and buy shingles made for your market area. Evidently shingles are made with different cold and heat tolerances you get one that’s not made specifically for your area you can have problems. It happened to a guy here locally who bought some shingles from a different region cheap cheap on one of the websites. It cost him more than he saved.May 31, 2015 at 12:30 pm #344052
Good information to know. I hate when things are just a little bit different than advertised. Turns out that little bit makes the difference between exceptional and unusuable.May 29, 2015 at 10:14 pm #343226
it it is on TV it has to be true. Correct?
That is only true for the internet. The TV lies.May 24, 2015 at 8:53 pm #340531
After getting the bosch 18v sawzall I just wanted to share my thoughts on it here. First of all, it is a really big tool. It will take up a lot of space in your tool bag/box for sure. While I like that it has two speeds, the mechanism to change speeds and lock the tool feels pretty cheap and it’s in kind of an awkward position. The non adjustable shoe sucks because it is set really far out, which means you can’t really use the super short blades. You also have to get used to changing the blades because they kind of shoot out of the saw when released.
One thing that I did appreciate was the smoothness of operation. It has a decent amount of vibration control, way better than the dewalt I was using before. It’s hard for me to guage battery life right now because I’m just using the 2.0 batteries. Overall I like the saw it just feels a bit underpowered for the size. Feel free to ask any questions you might have. I’m still thinking about doing a full review if there is much interest.
Only thing I would change on your review is the blade eject mechanism. I like that it kicks out the blades. Comes in real handy when changing out hot hot blades.May 24, 2015 at 8:42 pm #340523
What about the oxidizing cleaners/sanitizers? Like Oxiclean as an example. Another way out there thing I could think of was UV radiation. No source of that is there? I know that some food handling areas using UV to sanitize.May 22, 2015 at 10:19 pm #339632
To answer the originally question.
I prefer rustic. Beams, rough cedar everything square no curves. Very Ponderosa Ranch like. I agree the flat no trim look is much harder to achieve. Our drywall contractor charges about 20% more to give a dead flat smooth surface for paint or drywall. This is compared to a texture, orange peel, knock down etc. All production homes around here have sheetrock returns on the windows and a bunch of the custom ones also.May 22, 2015 at 9:52 pm #339611
Took a little while to work it all out. Decided to work it out nice rather than getting heated. Went through our lumber salesman at the same yard.(strange setup). He is going to take care of us on the deal. Reading through the lines he must have gotten the same song and dance as I had. Making templates this go around
