    Milwaukee vs Dewalt

    Milwaukee M18 Lithium Ion. Hands down. Unbelievable power and great battery life if properly maintained. I have the hammer drill, impact driver, light, sawzall, 4 1/2" angle grinder. Soon to be adding the 6 1/2" circular saw and the 2663-20 18-Volt M18 1/2-Inch High Torque Impact Wrench with...

    Small insulation job

    Just know that insulation will not stop air movement. It will provide insulation at an "R" value which is Resistance to heat. R30 is standard where I live in Louisiana. The pink styrofoam board may work, but air will seep around the edges if it is not a perfect fit. A few cans of "Great Stuff"...

    Generator Oil

    My champion 4 stroke 5500 watt generator calls for a 30 wt. I use Rotella SAE 30 in it. No problems. What weight does it require and what weight motorcycle oil are you talking about?

    I've been using an Alemite A500 that I purchased at a garage sale for $5.00 about 10 years ago. Still works fine.

    Hand crushers

    THIS is a good read! I always wonder this myself. I HATE a dead fish handshake! I hate it when someone grabs my fingers! Give me a good palm to palm firm shake, that's all! After constantly getting my hand crushed by an old co-worker who spent years in the concrete business, I invested a few...

    How do I get rid of Bamboo growing in my yard?

    I would avoid dumping any muriatic acid (hydrochloric acid) or any other chemical like that other than a hefty dose of concentrated round up. One of our local co-ops sells a 5 gallon jug of "Eraser". Its basically a ground sterilizer and kills everything. The cheaper way would be to get some...
