    There Will Be Blood – Peter Mertens, Former Head of Audi R&D: “We All Did Sleep”

    Moisture inside double pane glass doors.

    I have the same problem. As far as I know, the only option is to find a glass guy that is willing to just replace the glass pane but that is not so easy. Maybe a handyman that knows glass.

    Looking to buy a oscillating saw

    If I only plan to use a tool once every few years I get it at Harbor Freight. If I use it regularly I get something that plugs in, more power, and is a brand name with lots of good reviews on Amazon or Home Depot. My oscillating tool from HF has been used once in 3 years and worked fine.
