301. Re: [Shop-talk] Gas water heater vent: Is this correct? (score: 1)
Author: Doug Braun <doug@dougbraun.com>

It is normal-looking. BTW, if you remove the pipe completely and let the water heater vent directly into the room, the CO detector would probably still not go off. Water heaters normally generate ver

Oven cleaner is great for removing baked-on layers of dirt and grease, like what covers many old car drivetrain and suspension parts. It definitely removes old paint, and often rather quickly. You ne

One point about Flux-core vs Gas: With the wire sizes used by 120 volt welders, you can weld stuff only up to about .100" thick. To do thicker stuff, you will have to switch over to flux-core. So if

I have a Home Depot "Husky" house-brand electric washer. It is powerful enough for cleaning car parts. I think one advantage of a bigger gas model is a larger flow rate, which lets you clean more squ

Wouldn't most RVs have zero water pressure most of the time, and fairly low pressure when they are actually being used? I would think that in a RV you could get away with plumbing techniques (e.g. ho

You really ought to get it sandblasted or bead-blasted, since it is already separate from the vehicle. If you really can't do that, you could sand off most of the rust, and use a phosphoric acid base

Probably the best idea would be to replace the hose with a 100% metal flexible one. I think they don't even sell the vinyl/metal ones any more. A rigid pipe (is that what you mean by "ridged"?) is a
