Author: "David C." <>

We just had a heat pump system installed to replace our propane furnace. We had no A/C before, either. We kept the propane for emergency heat. My question is how low can you set the night setback and

OK, I'll admit I haven't been paying attention. I know we talked about Harbor Freight tool cabinets a couple of months ago but I was in the middle of an ISP change and starting the new school year an

Excellent point; I'll stop by HF this week and take a look at the cabinet on sale (coupon is good through mid November) then wait to see what the big box guys do. I was in Home Depot yesterday and th

Who's ratings? While I have bought my share of stuff from Harbor Freight, I would take the "ratings" on their web site with a very large grain of salt. There is a lot of stuff on the web from people

I have a number of cheap digital calipers. Probably half of them are from H.F. They are so cheap I have one on the main work bench, one or two with the lathe/mill, one on the reloading bench, etc. I

I can second that. A year or so ago I decided to get rid of one of the garage doors on my shop building. The shop is a wood framed metal clad pole barn and the door was a 10 x 10 foot metal slider. I

Garnet would probably be a lot more aggressive than glass beads and good for rusty stuff. It's commonly used as the "sand" in sandpaper. I wouldn't use it on aluminum or anything soft, though. I leav

Why not go ahead and use the wire netting or hardware cloth, and then put wood lattice over it. The wire would never show. _______________________________________________ Don

If it's just a temporary patch until the weather warms up, then asphalt cold patch, tamped in place with a 2x4, should work. Try to get it up to room temp first. _____________________________________

I believe the thinking is that a flush may push crap back into the transmission where it could clog oil passageways and cause more damage than it might prevent. I have a couple of Subaru Forresters.
