    Harbor Freight Tools that don't suck

    Some of his tests on glues, like two part epoxy, are the best I've seen anywhere. Some stuff is silly, but he puts a good effort into making his tests valid and repeatable.

    I think those boards are too skinny to provide enough lift for takeoff.

    Anything over 24 is excessive.

    Weird GFCI Tripping Problem

    I have a strange problem with my GFCI outlet tripping in my garage. The GFCI is on a side wall of the garage and sometimes when I flip the light switch over the garage sink (located on another wall) to the off position, the wall GFCI trips off. The sink light is a florescent with LED conversion...

    What is eating my soaker hose?

    I have soaker hose buried under the sawdust mulch around my blueberries. For the second time something has pulled out the hose and chewed it into multiple pieces. Any idea what does this and why?

    Pants with tough knees?

    I blow through the knees on jeans in no time. I'd like to find a pair of work pants that have a leather or other durable material reinforcing the knees.

    Anyone get a cool tool for Christmas?

    OK. I'll go first. I got a parachute bag that is perfect for my collection of "drywall" screws, that I've come to love for just about any wood joining task. Really closes up tight and compact, but opens up to show all the available screws...

    No more aluminum gutters?

    I was at Home Depot today to pick up some downspouts and elbows and they had two choices - plastic and galvanized steel. Really? Is aluminum that expensive these days? Those old steel gutters always rusted and looked like [email protected] after a few years, so I went for plastic, but I'd prefer aluminum...

    How much to pay a neighbor for electrical help

    I mentioned to a neighbor that I needed to replace my service panel (breaker box) and because he is a retired electrician he said he'd be glad to help me. So the day came and we hit it for about 7 solid hours. There was no discussion of compensation, though of course I planned to do something in...
