I agree with the "swamp cooler" suggestion. I once lived in Tucson and had one mounted in a "heat chimney" in the middle of the house. Kept everything comfortable and cost very little to operate. Hea

You use ether as a starter fluid for most diesel engines. Remember watching a mechanic spray an old International with ether until it started. Sounded better on ether than on diesel, put out pretty w

Check the cost of 3-phase. A Bridgeport just doesn't use enough power to make this usually worth the expense. I only has a 2-3 HP motor and you can use either a rotary or solid-state phase converter.

A TIG welder only uses 50-60 amps at some pretty high power levels. Will you really be doing 2 things at once while doing this? Will you really be welding 3" thick aluminum castings that often? If th

I totally agreed with Eric on this. The newer speed control phase converters (what is their real name?) are great. They adjust the number of cycles per second to adjust the speed. Mark V.S. in Austin

Not knowledge on the "French drain", but I would say that a 4" floor reinforced with just chicken wire would make a decent floor for a chicken coop, but not a shop. Al least, dig the edges deeper lik

With only 4" of concrete, rebar will not be a huge advantage over mesh. Rebar wired together into a 6"-12" grid is appropriate. Remember, concrete is simply a form of composite construction. The ceme

We may have a terminology problem here. Do you mean "blueboard" as in the stuff that goes behind skim-coat plaster (watch "This Old house" for mention of it that way)? Or, do you mean blue extruded p

To expand on this comment, it appears ITW choose to position the brands slightly differently so the overlap is minimized. At the present time, it appears that most Hobart welders are made at the ITW/
