121. RE: Compact fluorescent light bulbs in a drop light (score: 1)

Yes! DON'T use those plastic-coated bulbs in drop lights! They are NOT more resistant to vibration than regular bulbs. They are only meant to reduce the harm from broken glass. My drop light has had

I googled "evapo-rust", and there seem to be at least two companies making (or at least marketing) something called "Evapo-Rust". What exactly did you use? The funny thing about these non-acidic rust

Then, of course, my question becomes "Why is this stuff not made and sold by large companies?" There seem to be several small vendors selling it, so I doubt there are any patent or similar issues...

I have just a small cheapo 2-gallon parts washer filled with kerosene and Gunk concentrate, but I don't worry about the lack of filtering, because I always wash off the parts afterwards, and any resi

These days, with the electric drill voltage wars, even Consumer Reports considers a 14.4-volt drill to be low-powered. In any case, I highly recommend a drill that has a two-speed mechanical transmis

I used color flakes, and they made the surface a bit rougher. With them, I have never had a problem with slipperiness, so I would suggest not bothering with the anti-skid additive. But you have to be

The European light bulbs use the same socket as us, but they also have a bayonet style that is sometimes used. That just means that a shop has to carry more varieties of bulbs. Once when I was livin

I believe that one advantage of the wet setup is that you can use regular sand, because it will not create dust (just mud). But even so, you would not want to let it all dry and then sweep it up. Dou
