I finally decided on these metal shelves from Target. The brand is Room Essentials and they come in different widths and numbers of shelves and are also available in black. I purchased the wide three self system in chrome. I also added the industrial 4 inch casters. The shelves require no tools to assemble and the casters screw directly in to the bottom of the legs. Each shelf is rated to hold more than 300 pounds. I also bought a roll of shelf lining for the bottom two shelves. The shelves are modular so I can add additional units later if I want. Target has all of this together in one location in the store so it was a one stop shopping kind of thing. The total cost for the shelves and liner was right at $60.
The fundamental secret to a successful fire is planning. Good fires do not just happen, they are made. What you will need to build the perfect fire is a chimney starter, fuel (hardwood, charcoal, or both), and either newspaper or lighter cubes. If you are using newspaper, crumple two full sheets and stuff into the bottom of the chimney starter. If you prefer lighter cubes (my personal preference) just place one under the chimney starter. Fill the chimney with fist-sized chunks of hardwood, or charcoal, then light the newspaper or lighter cube. When the wood chunks are glowing embers, or the charcoal is covered in gray ash, dump the chimney contents in the firebox.
If an air compressor is out of the question, then may I suggest a 20-gallon shop-vac. Oh, don't look at me like that. I am so serious. Men might not know why, but they really need one. You can tell when you take them into that aisle at Home Depot. They stop and look longingly at it with a half smile. It may not get used weekly, but then you just might be surprised. A shop-vac may give him a reason to clean out the vehicles.
Monthly bills are piling up, gas prices are at all time highs and we are all looking at ways we can save ourselves some money. We should start by looking at ways we can make our homes more energy efficient and maybe a starter solar DIY project. Harbor Freight and Northern Tool and Equipment both have solar DIY kits starting at around $200 going up into the thousands. For those who want to find the real savings, building your solar system yourself is the way to go. Spend $20 to $40 and get a high rated solar DIY guide. Let's start saving money.
Oh it must be more than a couple decades now, but I can remember dealing with an independent contractor in my auto detailing business in Santa Barbara. He told me that he bought a very quiet generator, a Honda model, top of the line. He told me that he wanted one powerful enough to run a 5-hp vacuum, his buffers, lights, and a 1500 psi, 2.5 gallon per minute pressure washer all at the same time. I asked him why.
Casting about for something more robust than a hunk of plywood and some adjustable clamps, I found there are a number of folding workbenches on the market from manufacturers like Worx, Black and Decker, and sold at places like Home Depot, Lowes, and Harbor Freight. Their prices are varied, but they all have similar features. I especially like benches that fold flat, are easily stored, have built-in adjustable "vises", and can carry moderate loads.
