    I bet wrestling around with a sheet that size is fun.

    I turned 44 yesterday, so it was probably closer to 35 years ago when he gave me that hammer I suppose. I’ve used it so much that the checkering on the hammer face is wore plumb smooth.

    I’m trying to pick a favorite power tool, but I like my hand tools so much I can’t make the relation....

    Play your semantics, that’s all you’re good at. Don’t forget to google that word too, both of you are excellent googlers....if that isn’t a word, it is now. Of course you’re defending him, for some reason, but nobody is shocked.

    You should’ve stayed out of this, it had nothing...

    I’ll play. I figured it would be easy, ha! Not at all.

    I think my favorite tool is a hammer my uncle gave me probably 30 years ago when he was building his house and I was his helper. It’s a framing hammer, but I use it for whatever beating I need to do. Whompin’, pryin’, destroyin’,...

    Well if you end up looking to replace it, I haven’t found any better than metabo. They’re also easy to work on if you manage to break it. They have (at least mine do) and a thermal overload that will shit it down so you don’t melt something that can’t be replaced.

    If it’s getting hot, the cooling fan may also be damaged. One of my small grinders was getting hot a while back and the plastic fan had a couple fins broken off. Easy to replace and cheap. But like stated above, the condition of the brushes is also a likely culprit.

  • It doesn’t really matter who the LWS is, as long as the people working there are good folks. Helping out someone who is new to it should be their pleasure. You also have a side of the deal, but stuff from them. If you come in there asking question then buy all your stuff on amazon, it won’t be long...

    Well it’s Veterans Day now. It was armistice day, but not anymore. Doesn’t mean we don’t remember, just means it’s changed. We remember those that fell everyday, not just on Memorial Day. But today we celebrate those that returned to tell the tale, including me. For you to make an issue of it,...

    Its always that way, the best bead is the last. Might be because you’re really happy it’s all over. Unless you’re Franz. He’s perfect from start to finish. At least that’s what he wants you to believe. A 4” grinder will be fine for your project if that’s all you have. Actually, it’ll...

  • I have never seen a breaker start a fire because of “arcing” like Franz is talking about. So if you have a square D homeline panel, don’t panic. In fact, the only breakers I’ve seen actually fail to operate are the federal pacific. I’ve been a professional, career firefighter for about 2 decades....

    Oh ya, man you can totally fix that with what you have. You can make those pipe bevels with your torch too. If you’ve never done it, I’d practice some before you do it on the pipe. Goodness man, you have plenty of power in that buzz box to run the rod you need.

    Get a fresh, sealed...

    Ha! Sometimes it goes like that and I know the feeling with the hardheaded bit. What sort of equipment do you have available? Gear stout enough to tackle this repair? If you do, go for it. It’s broken now, it’s not like you’ll break it worse.

  • Very first welder I ever got I wired it properly by the colors. Problem was whoever had it before me didn’t believe the wire color was important. Once I got the green back to being green and not hot, she chooched along just fine. Fortunately it was an old transformer buzz box and nothing let the smoke...

    I tend to over build things as well. You’ll just have extra work in making sure you get the full penetration welds. A little extra grinding and fitting really. But not doing so is a waste and you could’ve just used thinner wall stuff. So you’ll end up with multi-pass welds to accomplish this re-do....

  • The industrial look in the kitchen seems to be the hot idea these days. It’s not my style, but if your wife likes it, I say this will make her an ally of the welding machine.

    I’ve done some work for guys wanting things zipped up for their kitchens. Stainless steel and they wanted color...

    The pancake will most certainly keep light out from behind the hood and into your eye balls.

    3 1/2” sch 160 is closer to the 1/2” that you wanted. It’s .437 according to the fancy pipe sch chart.
