    Sold on Seafoam

    I use the Stihl 2 cycle oil for 2.5 gallon mix but my jug is a 2 gallon jug so I have been using to much oil for years and I don't believe it has hurt a thing, I had rather have a little to much than not enough. Now when it comes to my seafoam I buy several cans when I see it on sale and I'm...

    I am planning on the second ground rod, and I have enough wire in the first box to move it to a breaker but I'll have to move something else out of the old box to the new box to make room.

    That is what I was trying to avoid when I decided to over lap the buildings, the new metal should land just behind the first ridge on the old building

    Thank y'all for your replies, I had thought about putting in a GFI breaker in but I had not really decided yet. when I wired my other shop 20 years ago I did not install any GFI's until later when I installed a RV box for my Dad to use when he came to visit and it has a 50A, 30A and a 120 volt...

    It's coming on and looking good. I do have some electrical experience and that maybe why I enjoy a good electrical discussion because I continue to learn and sometimes it just reminds me of things I have forgotten. I have a ground rod at the building now but I plan on installing another

    Jeff that is so close to what I have in mind, I was considering using EMT because it is metal and I think would be better but I have about 10 sticks of 1/2 inch PVC conduit laying behind my shop I can use instead of buying. I see you used some MC cable and some EMT I may use some PVC and some...

    I ordered a new metal shop building today, it is basically a glorified car port but it will serve to double the size of my existing shop and with a taller roof it will be better suited for my recent lift addition. It will have the square tubing wall studs and roofing metal walls, with the wall...

    Electrical cord storage

    I was showed that a long time ago and it just didn't catch on with me but you can just pull out what you need and then put it all back. Now that I'm older and my arms are not as strong as they once was I may have to revisit that on some of my longer cords.

    Trailer brakes, is this normal?

    I am not sure it is actually a delay you are seeing but maybe the controller setting is low. the lower the setting the longer it takes to stop the wheel and the higher the setting the faster or stronger the brakes are applied. I believe it is working correctly from your description.

    Okay after being out of town and then trying to play catch up with chores, I finally got both trailers and my truck wired up and ready. I did plug the trailers up just long enough to verify a difference in the sound of the pump but I have not gotten a chance to use either one yet. Should I...

    Good eye I see the wood and some chipped paint in the area, might look into fabricating a guard for those hoses. Looks to me like you maybe able to remove the broken end with an ese out and as someone else said carry complete hose to a local shop that makes hoses.

    Should Outdoor GFCIs Trip on Nearby Lightning Strikes?

    Okay, so all of mine are inside with a regular plug down stream and outside and I have never had that to happen not saying that's the problem just comparing. another thought is there more than one actual GFCI plug on that circuit?

    Pressure washer

    I bought the Ryobi from Homedepot a few months ago and was pleasantly surprised, I like the fact that it cuts off when I let go of the trigger and the 2300 psi is plenty for what I need it for, it is lighter than my gas powered one and I don't have to put gas in it and pull on it to crank it my...
