Unfortunately for older glued floating hardwood floors, the multifunction tool does not provide all the accessories to complete a repair. These floors require a groove cleanout so they can effectively fit together again. Otherwise re-attachment is not possible without the final outcome looking like a repair. They simply will not engage and you're left with a repair board that will not fit back into place. Attempting to clean the glue with hand tools may work, but will take longer and is likely to cause damage to the surface of the board itself.
While this is a bench designed for light to moderate loads, you might consider replacing the worksurface's fiberboards with lengths of 1½ X4 inch lumber, suitably drilled holes for the plastic dogging clamp inserts. If you are comfortable with a power planer or router, make a suitable undercut to clear the hand cranks and use 1 ½ X 6 inch planks for the work surfaces. That will give you a wider working surface when the two panels are cranked to the max.
First of all, you can educate yourself about the alternative methods of providing power to your home during an outage. While purchasing an emergency backup portable generator is what most people think of doing, many people either don't have the $500 to $800 to lay out for that purchase. In addition, storing gasoline may not be an option, especially if you live in the city and have a small lot, or worse yet, if you live in an apartment.
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.
Purchase a simple multi-tester or multi-meter for less than ten dollars and perform the following test. With the car off, leave the headlights on for about 2-3 minutes. Set an alarm so you do not drain the battery, and turn the headlights off when it goes off. This will remove any surface charge. Set the multi-tester dial so it registers in the 20 Volt DC range. You can read the multi-tester instructions or research its use online. A multi-tester is very simple to use. Touch the red lead to the positive battery terminal, and the black one to the negative. A healthy, fully charged battery should read around 12.5-12.8 Volts. This will vary with temperature (lower temperatures mean lower voltage), but should never be below 12 Volts. Another optional suggestion is to touch the black multi-tester lead to your engine or a metal part of the vehicle. If the voltage is substantially lower you may have a bad cable connection.
However, the power of e-commerce across the U.S. can never be underestimated, especially around the specialized strategic sales of seasonal holidays, such as Christmas, Thanksgiving, plus the usual Memorial Day weekend deals and Cyber Monday clearance sales. Amazon stated last year that, at its peak, it had actively sold over 300 items every single second of the day!
