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.
Each of the hand crank lead screws goes through an end plate that's bent from the leg support sheet metal. If you look closely, you'll notice that the lead screw plate is secured to the sidewalls by two sheet metal "ears" and two small dimples in the sidewalls. That looks like a potential source of failure downstream: nothing prevents the sidewalls from separating and allowing the crank to become loose. My fix? Simple: I installed a clamping and securing bolt through the sidewalls just behind the end plate. To secure the sideplates and preventing them from spreading apart, about 1 inch from the end plate, I drilled a ¼" clearance hole through the two sideplates (that also mount the legs) and put a 1 ½ inch long, ¼ -20 bolt with a washer and a locknut. Tightening the locknut makes the endplate securely clamped to the sidewall plates; this will prevent any tendency for that endplate holding the leadscrew and cranking handles from coming loose over time.
The central pneumatic air compressor has the ability to help homeowners complete large home improvement jobs that can get really expensive if they hire a contractor. The average cost of this compressor is $180.00 from Harbor Freight Tools, but it can be found online at a discount. Once you know you are able to replace dry wall or a window by yourself, the compressor will have paid for itself many times over.
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.
Orchard Supply to the rescue once again. The concrete molds have been in stock there forever. So get a walkway mold and align it with on one side or the other of your painted sheet. It's easiest to use a colored pencil similar in color to the color of your base coat. This makes it not so noticeable and you don't always stay within the lines so much, right kids? I tried using a Sharpie on one sheet and I hated myself for all the dark, heavy black lines left to cover. Using the mold upside down, trace the contour of the stones out onto the cardboard. Now, lightly scribe the two outside flanges where the pattern forms a "v" on one side and an "a" on the other side made by the mold's outside shape. These will be the keys to line up the next areas to be scribed since there's no concrete to line up the mold with again and the mold shape itself makes it hard the judge the distance from the last stone to the next to keep the mortar thickness the same. Once I can see the rocks I can't help but miss the ass in my face....yummy.
Allow me to guide you through this process right here at the start and I believe that you'll be more than pleased with the results of this search and that you will find the confidence to build that shed you've been wishing for. You see once you have the information spread out before you in an easy step by step approach to all aspects of the project the nay sawyer's voices will disappear for good.
