    I still can't find a roll of Canadian bacon around these parts, I only can find Armor Canadian Bacon in strips, I have to travel a hundred miles to buy by the roll. I think it has something to with Truedope and Trump not liking one another. The only green Trump likes is the kind you can fold and put...

  • Waiting to see if I can buy extra remotes, one won't cut it.

    I have to think about this, if the remote gets misplaced I'm screwed.

    Answer: For this kind of controller kit, the controller box and the remote are one-to-one relation and thus we donot provide extra remotes....

  • It looks to me like the metal is a bit rusty, so, I'm thinking clean steel would give a better example of whats going on with the machine's wire settings. I do like the camera shot. I bought a pair of round burning goggle lens to place over my camera's 52MM lens, but never got around to filming with...

    I like your Idea of a Tupperware box, it would allow me to rap the battery with a heating pad and line the box with hard foam insulation, along with placing a trickle charger and a thermostat I have in the box to turn the heating pad on and off. ...

    I'm going to open the door as far as it goes with the closer on it and measure the whole unit at it's longest travel, I still want to mount it on the top of the door, I can buy a fiberglass battery box and put a car battery in it, slip it under the ramp and hook a trickel charger to the battery, how...

    It would be cool to have a push-button thingy like on my garage door opener, but I've no experience in building such things, If I had a bunch of parts and components sitting in front of me and some help, I possibly could figure it out. I'm a hands on type of experimenter, not the note pad kind, plus...

    I'm thinking about an actuator like is used on utility vehicles dump beds. A 12-volt DC actuator hooked to a 12 volt golf cart starter solenoid switch, which in turn is hooked in parallel to "out and in" floor-mounted rollover strip switches hooked to a $10 amazon timing circuit to measure...

    My legs are so bad I can't stand but for a few seconds or walk not even a few steps, I have to get as close to my Daughter's Envoy as I can and fall back into the seat and pull my legs inside the vehicle. I can't go anywhere without help so It's hopeless and not worth the money or time to build a lift....

    replied to HF parts washer replacement pump
    That's a good idea. The reason the pump failed was I forgot to drain tank over the winter and freezing temps took it out.

    My initial plans were to put a settling tank down on the bottom shelf and pump cleaner off the top of the settling tank into a sock filter in the tank, and let the...

    Franz, I have been thinking about removing the closer all together, the door faces the south and sets inside a pocket so it pretty much protected from the wind, plus the closer is a pain to get the stop to hold the door open.

    I don't know about a battery-operated chair, I would need a lift...

    started a topic HF parts washer replacement pump

    HF parts washer replacement pump

    I needed to replace the pump in my HF parts washer so I ordered what was supposed to be an exact fit pump, but it wasn't. So what I did is replaced HF's plumbing with a shoulder nipple that measured the same length as the HF plastic plumbing minus the white plastic bushing and screwed the HF plastic...

    I plan to Franz. Especially next spring. I want to cut a 300 gal fuel tank in half and weld it back together with a steel divider plate, I'll have diesel on one side and gas on the other and build a trailer for the tank so I can take it to my famer neighbor and have his fuel man fill it for me.and...

    I only have a 10" Bosch portable saw a 2000? I think it is. I gave my old Delta Construction table saw to the SIL, I didn't have the room for it and If I need it I can barrow it back. I'll go with the Bedliner first, I used it on my tractors 5' blade and fork and so far it's held up, if it chips...
