Location: Auburn, Maine, USA

Retired school teacher, house husband, putt-putt on household projects, likes computers, loves my wife, loves my two dogs, have a 37 yr old son. Remodel house last yr. Guess that painting and siding are next, but bad back will limit the amount of work and the height that I am able to climb. Damn hard getting old, winters are not fun, but wife loves the NE so guess that I will have to wait until she retires to try again to convince her to move to a warmer climate.

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless

Hello Peter,

Let me welcome you to LJs. I am sure that you will find being a member of this group to be an interesting, as well as exciting, experience. Have fun and enjoy.

Peter, I saw your question posted on Tom’s (ND2ELK) profile. Here is the post that shows the pvc switch. If you go to Mark’s home page and send him a message he might be able to help you. The only thing is he has not been active here in over a year.
