A magnet will be useless when dealing with aluminum. But it would be good for finding and removing the harder and more dangerous steel pieces. Block all oil return passages. Remove cams, pull out the HLA’s. Try and soak up as much oil with rags as you can. Get a good light and take your time s…
If you really want to see a shocker look up Berkshire Hathaway companies.
Holly Molly. That’s an impressive list. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_assets_owned_by_Berkshire_Hathaway
I have a few shares of the Berkshire Hathaway B shares in an retirement account. The annual report is a great read. It is a…[Read more]
Way back in the dark ages of this site, we had screen names and user names. The user name was not seen so I used My Email for that. My screen name was KurtW.
At one point they did away with screen names and went to our user names which was my email. I asked to have it changed, but was told it could not be changed. I believe someone has had…[Read more]

I managed to install an 8′ patio door and a window.
Too cold to remember to take pictures.
I can believe the too cold thing. Lots of cold out there, even down south the cold air is coming.
temps are 30 degrees below normal for this time of year here. No snow yet either. It will push the frost deep this year. R…[Read more]
Installed new height adjusters in a gym. We were supposed to install 6 but only got five done, so back tomorrow.
We had to remove some pipes from the structure and replace them with others that fit between the uprights instead of in front of them. The uprights were 66″ between and they sent 61″ pipes. I enede up having to buy 12 – 10′ x 1 1/2″…[Read more]

The stations were very crowded so I couldn’t go as close as I wanted it.
Around here it draws a huge crowd. If you want to get up close, Be prepared to get there early and stand for a while.
It is that time of year again to bump this thread again, and provide the link to the Canadian Pacific Holiday Train Schedule.
We see this train in town every year or two, and it travels within a half mile of my shop when leaving town. It is a great thing to see when traveling from place to place. It is all lit up as it travels.
Here is the…[Read more]
It sounds like the 18V and 18Vx2 will be parallel platforms to the 40 V.
With the proliferation of their 18V lineup, I would guess they will not kill it. If they move on to a revised battery configuration I would guess they will have an adapter like Dewalt so as not to PO a lot of customers.
Dewalt is basically running parallel lines with…[Read more]

I think It is a general comment about what should be posted, If it is not something you would actually read or want to read, don’t post it.
It does not matter whether you are a pro or not, if you are posting good content or questions.
I see non-pro’s posting great reviews on tools and equipment that are great content and worth reading. I wish…[Read more]
low maintenance, all weather furniture and handy in a flood.
I bought the Makita dual 18V (36V) Power Shaft and two of the attachmemt accesories this past summer, but never even unpacked them until today. The tiller attachment is still boxed, likely til next year, but today I assembled the main unit with the sidewalk edger and took her out for a…
Digging footings for another house today. I hope we can stay ahead of the weather, to get the block laid and the underground done.

I have a few of the Knock off ladders like the Little Giant’s. they work fairly well and are handy to carry in the truck without hanging out the back. For the length they are, they are fairly heave however.
I was in New Orleans for meetings last week. Our meetings were only a few blocks from the Hard Rock so one afternoon I took the opportunity to walk around the site during a break.
We were not able to get real close, But I was able to get several photo’s. Sorry if they are grainy or turned the wrong way, that is what my phone does.
