Finished another much needed project for my garage/shop: insulating my 2 car garage door. I used the highly recommended RMAX Thermo-Something 1.5” rigid iso foam giving a R value of 9.5’ish with the heat reflective foil. $25’ish at Home Depot and I have to use 4 sheets. If you are in driving range of the 3 RMAX manufacturing locations (I took picture below), you can actually drive in person and get a 4×8 sheet for 75% off the damaged or not visually appealing ones! ...
Yesterday I scored a major milestone in my shop. I had foam insulation sprayed on the interior of the ceiling. Next, I’ll concentrate on rewiring it and studding/insulating the walls. This is a big deal to me, because my shop has been out of commision for a while. I’m ready to get moving again! I walked into it today and noticed that it is already noticably warmer.
Hi gang, Still haven’t ‘finished’ my ultimate tool stand, but thought I’d share some late night/early morning tool thoughts with you. My management job at the courier service has been keeping me hopping lately… and I’ve barely had any time to sleep, let alone get any shop time in the past couple of weeks. I had three drivers leave, and while I had interviews going on, and hiring etc… I’ve had to cover the routes with other drivers and take up ...
I was inspired last week to find yet another use for my Sing Honeycomb Panels. We’re launching a line of insulated panels for overhead garage doors. I’ve noticed that too many nice homes have dinged up garage doors. It’s because garage doors are expensive to repair. You don’t want to replace a panel for a golf ball dent, so you let it go until the damage is beyond cosmetic. Soon, you’ve run into the garage door with your car or time has made the edges drafty, so ...
Well I finally got some pictures from inside the can. Being the cheapskate that I am, found a factory refurbished digital camera to take my pictures. Rather then getting the camera I previously told you about at Big Lots. Hey! I save $10 even with shipping from tigerdirect.com. So, without dragging this on forever, here are the latest photos from outside and inside the can. As you can see this is the outside, which is soon to be painted a lighter or reflective color to help reflect radi...
Looted my storage unit today. I had this pile of wood in there… plus just a bit more ‘shorts’ and ‘cutoffs’ but they’ll come home tomorrow. I had to clear out the rack just above the mitersaw, so I put up a couple more arms on the wall and moved the short stock over there. I won’t need to buy too much wood for awhile.. who am I kidding anyway? Mostly cherry, (middle section), plus some maple and butternut (bottom and top sections) ...
