Re: OMG - I Can Buy My Childhood

I'm wrestling on where to put it - we don't "need" four cars but this is a good deal.

Ppphhhhpthpthpth.... there is a cul-de-sac somewhere near you. Go for it. A friend had one when I was in college. I liked it a lot. They [more]

Re: Girl car no more?

Looks wonderful to me.

But I've always argued against the whole "Miata is a girl's car" bit.

Re: where to buy a taco pump for boiler system

SP,

The TACO unit he is considering isn't identical, but does have the same flange type and face-to-face distance as the unit he is replacing. He may get it swapped without any pipe fitting.

B&G LR20BF -- brass?

Bronze. It also comes in iron, but you don't want that when you're pumping untreated water because it would rust.

TACO 007 F5

Agree, as it has a similar flow curve and the same [more]

Re: AC freon leak

As you might imagine, a leak can be small or large or somewhere in between. The speed at which freon escapes depends in part on how big the leak is.

So we cannot tell you whether adding a can will work for a short time or a long [more]

Re: where to buy a taco pump for boiler system

I would check Grainger. They are trusted by industrial purchasers, construction purchasers, and the like. I can't say how their pricing might compare to other sources for you and your particular product needs, but it's worth checking out. Here is [more]

Re: Camry

I think everybody should choose a Miata over a Camry!

Where do you put the baby seat?

In your other, family oriented vehicle, which should also not be a Camry.

Re: Don't tell me how to spend my money!

Seems to me that there is no benefit overall to this pay it forward idea. In the long run, all drinks are payed for as if the idea had never been implemented.

Well, except I wonder how you buy the next guy's drink when he hasn't ordered yet. [more]

Re: Camry

But the girl should still be told about how she should have gotten a Miata instead.

There you go trying to perpetuate the girl's car image.

HAHA not at all. I think everybody should choose a Miata over a Camry!

Oh wait. Now I understand you were talking about two different cars. The purchase one and your sister's. At first I thought you were going to buy your sister's.

Re: Looking At A '97 Camry To Buy

Wait. You're buying a car for a girlfriend of a son of a woman that you aren't married to yet? That's the kind of situation in which you better be dang sure about the mileage. Is it 1/4 million or is it 1/5 million?

Re: What color wood floors do you like?

I like either pretty dark or pretty light, depending on the lighting and other colors in the space. I dislike the in-between stuff. Stuff that looks "golden" or "honey" is the worst for me.

Re: Great Stuff

Gotcha. So it's an EFIS system. I wouldn't try acetone on it then, for fear I might get a bit on the underlying foam. That's a disaster waiting to happen.

Re: Great Stuff

In our case, the stucco itself is "elastomeric".

You mean they just mixed the elastomeric coating, or perhaps other plasticizers, right into the composite masonry mixture? Like, in lieu of or in addition to water? And then [more]

Re: Great Stuff

Elastomeric refers to a particular type of finish coat that is often applied over both EFIS and stucco or other actual masonry construction.

It is a type of water-based paint, but much thicker and heavier duty than just paint. Since it's [more]

College professors are mired in debt, so they don't much bring that issue up to their students, except to complain about it.
