    2/2 I'm thinking the second 2 is the neutral as reduced size neutrals used to be allowed. I've never used direct burial cable that big, always used conduit. 2 ga copper will do a 100 amp service if there aren't other limiting conditions. If it's...

    Mal Paso replied to a thread What a show this morning in Our Town
    I'm at 1900 feet with a thermal zone in front of the house and vultures put on a great show. They like to fly more than any other bird I've seen. They circle in front to gain altitude then go off to find food or have fun. They often glide through...

    Mal Paso replied to a thread Kerosene in Our Town
    Good thread! It was likely a poorly maintained wick that caused my low opinion of kerosene heaters. It was in a Big Sur cabin and enough wind came through the walls that the fumes didn't kill us. As tight as my house is now I wouldn't use any heater...

    Mal Paso replied to a thread Any other welders here? in Our Town
    Some of the flux core on the market is so bad it's not usable. The worst I ever had was .035 Lincoln from Home Depot. Could not maintain an arc, could snap it with your fingers. I would pass on a large quantity if you can't try it first. I buy...

    Mal Paso replied to a thread Metric tool rant in Our Town
    True but if you get out your largest tool and set it beside the job, to let it know you are serious, things often go smoothly. A 4 foot pipe wrench is one of my favorites.

    Mal Paso replied to a thread Metric tool rant in Our Town
    LOL My Dodge truck was the first one to force 18mm on me. Before that there was nothing between 17 and 19mm. Last transmission pull HD had a 200 piece Husky socket set marked down to $90 so I bought it. Has every mm even half mms. All it really...
