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.
All good composters have a good vent system. You want air to circulate throughout your compost, but you don't want to let bugs in with the air. My barrel already had two holes in the top so I cut two 2" holes in the bottom that lined up with them. I then cut two lengths of 2" PVC pipe long enough to stick out of the barrel about 1 ½" top and bottom and then drilled several ½" holes in both pipes along the length that will be inside the barrel. After inserting the vent pipes in the barrel I then glued the Nibco fittings on the ends. This fitting has a screw-on cap that would have been used as a pressure fitting for a slip joint. Just unscrewed these caps and cut out a piece of screen cloth to fit inside them. Screw the caps on to the pipes then use some putty to fill any gaps between the pipes and the holes you had cut in the barrel. Find a good place set up, place the barrel on its platform and start throwing in those table scraps and grass clippings. It would be a good idea to keep the compost level inside the barrel just below the vent pipes so that rotating the barrel won't be too much of a task.
The best (smoothest) finish should be obtained by applying a good color coat first. After that has dried well you can polish out any irregularities with fine grit sand paper (2000, 3200, something of that order.). If additional coats are needed you can apply them lightly afterwards. I would wait for clear coat until the finish is blemish free. If you are using gloss paint for the color coats make sure that the coats are thoroughly dry between coats. Sometimes that might take a day or two. A trick that a friend uses for his funny car models is to use finger nail polish as it dries very smooth.
How about a new way to look at cleaning your motorcycle? I'm not going to tell you to make a list of cleaners and polishers as long as your arm. Tell you to go get them and swear to their ability to transform your scooter into the once proud machine that rolled off the line 30 years ago. Let's face it there's too many to list and talk intelligently about. My experience is most riders want a routine that works and they also want to know what they do wrong in the process so they don't get the cleaning DEMON ATTITUDE! I know it isn't easy but I think I can help.
They best part about this next phase is you get to sit down and paint the stones. The cardboard isn't all that uncomfortable, so the whole family can pitch in and help. I use one of those small foam bushes with soft little angled bristles. It is set on a curved handle with comfort in mind because painting this way with a standard brush would require you to post your wrists while painting to stay within the lines. By posting I mean setting your wrist down on a surface much like when you write with a pencil. but this is like moving a matchbox car with a tight turn radius around the rock patterns we scribed earlier. Another plus of this curved handle is it allows you to dip the brush directly into the paint can to wet the foam pad. This eliminates the pouring of paint into other smaller containers which wastes paint.
Are you familiar with the trucks which are built simply to be a moving bill board? Do they work? They would not exist if they did not work! How can you get attention, and display a large sign while riding your motorcycle? Find out! So how are you going to get a big sign on your motorcycle? First, you need a hitch. Find one on eBay for about $200. Or, check with your local motorcycle mechanic. Get the hitch on, and you're ready to tow!
