There seems to be a lot of confusion about whether or not to soak the hardwood before burning it. First, do not bother with chips because they are a waste of time and money. You can readily obtain hardwood chunks from Walmart, Lowes, or Home Depot. There is simply no benefit to be derived from soaking your hardwood chunks. Chris Allingham has a video on just how much water penetration is achieved in an overnight soaking. View it at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rv7y1TWyKEw. Additionally, that wet wood is going to have to dry before it will burn. The drying process is going to create steam and that steam can contain creosote. Once the drying wood starts to burn, it is going to produce that thick, white smoke which will carry creosote. Remember, you want clear, blue smoke.
Now then, the other day I was paging through a tool catalog for Harbor Freight and Salvage and there were a number of generator and pressure washers available. Some of which were from China, and I have nothing against quality equipment from whatever country it comes from, but there is a big difference in quality, and a big difference in cost. Further there is a large gap between the number of decimals some of this equipment puts out, and it does matter, especially if you are detailing cars in a parking lot nearby offices.
Misc small tools: Drill motors at least one, you will drill hundreds if not thousands of holes, but seldom will you need the 1/2 chuck and big power, besides those drills are heavy. one cordless drill is nice to have 18 volt nothing smaller, and a couple spare batteries. Jig saw and finish sanders, just about any will do but get the best your budget will allow. one good random obit sander is a must, sticky back or hook and loop, I've used them both and don't have a favorite.
Shelter Boxes are containers that typically include enough emergency supplies to sustain 10 people in the event of a disaster. These boxes are distributed by an aid agency of the same name. The contents will provide shelter as well as life-saving equipment during these crises. This agency supplies this valued box in response to cyclones, earthquake, floods, hurricanes, tsunamis and volcano disasters that occur worldwide.
Use the inner brush to clean the battery posts thoroughly, along with the cable end. If the posts are caked with a crust, you should purchase felt washers that fit around the base of the battery terminal posts. Another suggestion is to coat the terminal contact surfaces with a special battery grease that is available from any auto parts store. Replace the positive terminal first, again this is to minimize sparking.
I almost purchased a rolling computer desk from Office Depot but then decided it was a little short for my uses. I'm a tall guy and generally paint standing up so I wanted something that stood around waist high. My only other requirements were that I could put a glass palette on top and have some shelves for paint, brushes, and solvents, and that the shelves are pretty durable.
