Possibly, but if it's just those screws, it seems unlikely to me. I'd be more worried about the screens that are apparently missing. Not sure why you are asking us; have it apart and see what's maki

I'm guessing it has nothing to do with how warm the water going into the drain is; but rather that hot+cold flows in faster than cold alone and is also more turbulent/traps more air. My bathroom sin

Aye, there's the rub. I have a similar problem with slow washing machine drain, and it's my opinion that the line has the wrong pitch (possibly even backwards pitch) allowing sediment and lint to co

It takes a steady hand, but I have cut things like that using an ordinary Skil saw and carbide-tipped fine tooth plywood blade. Didn't seem to harm the blade at all (tho it was cheap enough that I w

I could be wrong, but I don't believe the gun & nozzle (some systems use disposable nozzles as well) are absolutely necessary. If you work quickly, you can hand-mix small batches and apply it like e

Any comment on whether it actually takes the battery to full voltage and then lets it float down ? The ad copy sounds good, but the lack of technical specifications makes me suspicious. Randall ____

As I see it, they didn't have a "float" circuit at all. Just a constant (regulated) voltage. So did mine. But likely that was because I didn't fully charge the battery first. They apparently have no

I have no experience, but the BatteryMINDer website specifically mentions the Optima. But oddly enough, they also offer an Optima-specific model

So, does that mean the standard Battery MINDer meets the Optima specifications or not ? If it does, why offer a different unit ? If it doesn't, why advertise that it does ? I'm guessing it would be

So neither the box nor the battery feel the least bit warm ? Don't have a watt-meter, but my cable box also sucks power all the time (as shown by the box staying quite warm even when not in use). I

As I read the info at I believe the answer is "probably not". Optima is very specific about using only a "regulated" charger, which is not what I would call a "regular" cha

Which of course is exactly as Optima says it should. No argument from me, I just wouldn't call the result a "regular" charger. Perhaps I misunderstood the question, I thought it was "can I use a reg

IMO it's a mistake to regard "Craftsman" as a compressor maker at all. Sears resells compressors made by several people, including IR and the same folks that make Campbell-Hausfeld. IOW the quality
