    To Ďsplití a boulder or rock you have to stress it along the grain, like a seasoned wood crack but harder to find. My dad could look at a rock, roll it once, hit it (not hard) several times with a 3 lb. mash hammer, and presto, a rock split in two....

    Blue Coral car wash in the rinse water seems to reduce water spots. After separating pins and shaking on a towel I stack them on drying racks (boards with plastic pins) to dry in the sun. If itís cloudy and the wife is out I put the racks on the...

    Iím seldom in a rush for the few items I order online, unless the promised delivery date is pushed back a week. Even then it rarely matters other than I expect companies and people to live up to their word. That said, poorly packaged deliveries...

    country_gent, Do you recall when Campbells rejected a shipment of can steel from National Steel? I think it was around 1999 or 2000. It became a joke in the steel construction industry that their steel couldnít hold soup.

    We purchased a 25 year old rural home that was heated with fuel oil and had a 250 gallon underground tank. Back then I could fill it in June for 75 cents a gallon but we used around 650 gallons each heating season. Filling it up in the winter was...

    Is this the process that requires Ďbreaking iní a barrel by cleaning after each shot? Iíve heard of several manufacturers requiring the consumer adhere to this process as a condition of warranty.

    If the OPís neighbor doesnít plan to use the tank it would be best to remove it now. A steel tank sooner or later will develop a leak. Then, even a few gallons of residual fuel oil can contaminate a lot of soil. The EPA requires that contaminated...

    That same tire is $185 on Amazon. But, at only saving $15 per tire, I would definitely go with the local shop. I’m happy. Amazon would have charged me 6.5% sales tax so $197 per tire. I wound up paying 412.00 for two mounted and balanced and...

    It was a 45 SBR. As far as usage, it wasnít rented every day. And most times only a box or two of ammo, which didnít last long. Both the AK and Thompson got a lot more use. Iím sure it being a full auto significantly effected the repair costs. ...
