    Exhaust options for my 4’ x 4’ generator shed

    In addition to the recommended double wall pipe, you might want to consider adding a Lomanco turbine on the roof. I installed one of these in my shed roof years ago. It still does the job of lowering the temp in the shed. It works by convection and will be spinning away on a hot day with zero...

    I need some input on roll around tool boxes

    I have several oversize boxes I like, one is an old stainless Sams club special buy, but my favorite is a Kobalt from Lowes.

The old victor traps with the pepperoni in them has worked the best for me. Mouse damage to the machines is a royal...

    Drain plug 3/8 +/-

    Look at the fill/drain plugs on older cars rear end pumpkins. I have a double ended wrench to take out those plugs that has seven different square tips on it. I restore antique cars, and have used most of those tips at one time or another. The common sizes are 3/8”, 7/16”, and 1/2”. My wrench...
