The next test involves cranking the car, and being safety aware (no hanging jewelry or long hair) and measuring voltage at the battery terminals. Read the voltage on the meter as someone else cranks the vehicle. The voltage should not drop below nine or ten volts. You may want to repeat this test to get an accurate reading. If the voltage is not within spec you should consider a new battery, or have your starter professionally tested.
Aside from all the success and great prices on tools, most people want to know if the tools you get from Harbor Freight are of good quality. We are taught from a young age that if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. But this is not always the case as I have come to find out. Harbor Freight offers some great quality tools at very competitive prices.
I like creating with my hands. I especially enjoy creating useful items out of wood. Unfortunately, my self-designed and self-built garage 6 X 3 foot workbench has a tendency to become littered with miscellaneous "stuff", and I find myself at my wit's end attempting to build projects on a piece of plywood strung across two folding sawhorses. Not ideal, I will agree. I do appreciate the convenience of being able to take down and put away the components of my makeshift working surface. What I don't like is that the working surface is not that stable and requires a separate set of clamps to hold the working top to the sawhorses.
The grommet gives us a strong anchor point without worrying about any tearing or ripping or having nails or staples pull away from the wall from it's weight. A small round punch is used to make a perfect circle. I use a small scrap of plywood underneath the cutting operation so as not to dull the cutter. A steel base with 1/2 the grommet poking through the hole is placed below the cardboard. The other 1/2 of the grommet is placed on top of this with a steel punch made to curl the soft metal grommet in the base then smacked with a hammer till it seats down. Do not beat the piss out of it since the grommet since it crimps itself onto the cardboard. You would wind up with an even bigger hole that I'm not quite sure they make grommets for.
What you want to achieve is a small, glowing fire in the fire box. That fire should last, unattended, for 45-60 minutes, and the temperature should remain steady. During this 45-60 minute burn, you should preheat one or two sticks of wood on top of the fire box. This preheating will help the wood burn faster and produce less thick, white smoke (more on smoke color in a bit). When you add a stick of wood to the fire box, open the intake about halfway. This will give your fire a little breath of air. When the preheated stick catches fire, close the air intake back down to about one quarter.
Those new to smoking tend to think strictly in terms of smoke rather than smoke content. You need to start thinking of smoke in terms of seasoning like rosemary or garlic. You do not want to over-season your food. The smoke exhausting from the smokers of those new to the art can only be compared to a flaming mattress. That thick, white smoke bellowing from the chimney of your smoker is going to spell disaster for your brisket. Thick, white smoke carries a higher concentrate of creosote than clear, blue smoke. What you want to achieve is a clear, blue smoke.
