Life happenings #12: The bathroom disaster.

09-12-2018 11:36 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I was debating on weather I ought to put this in here, but there is a lot of working with wood in it, along with a lot of other things, so why not. A couple of weeks ago we had a fitting fail in our master bathroom. We had to pull everything out of the room to gain access to the leak. Well, my wife has been wanting to remodel the bathroom for the last 16 years, so while everything is out of it, why not? Other than it’s a ton of work and expense. I am posting the first 3 videos, d...

The She Shop #4: Water Mitigation Resolved...moving on

09-12-2018 06:37 PM by rhybeka | 5 comments »

I went and picked up the sewer pipe and channel drain supplies from the local blue box. OUCH. Once the concrete channel was cut, my dad gave me the idea of putting in gravel and seeing if that would suffice. I went and got a load of gravel and did just that. This past weekend we got remnants of a tropical storm that dropped ~5’ of rain. not a drop in the shop along the far wall. The little bit of water shadowing I saw will be fixed by putting up a gutter across the front and some m...

Knee Vise - Tool Gloat (Fail)

09-11-2018 11:09 PM by greg48 | 2 comments »

A few weeks back I found an old knee vise attached to an outdoor work bench while helping a friend clean out a yard. Asked if I wanted it or else it goes to the dump, I brought it home (spiders and all). Well, I finally decided to see what kind of treasure I had found and began to strip off the old jaws from the screw (which were attached with nails and bent over carriage bolts). What I came up with was a Columbian 1⅛” vise with some surface rust but seemingly serviceable. ...

Calif. Prop 65, sanding pads, Amazon

Just tried to purchase a replacement pad for my DeWalt RO sander from Amazon. Got a notice telling me that they can’t ship it in to California due to a problem with prop 65 warnings that the dust from sanding can cause various cancers and health problems. I had to drop ship it to a relative out of state and have him send it to me via USPS.Amazon is perfectly happy to allow you to buy a new sander from lots of suppliers, as well as sanding discs of various grits, but replacement pads ...
