Thank you, Norm, I knew you wouldn't let me down! I started to reply earlier that what you said because that's exactly what I did when one of the old boys down the road dropped a screen by and asked...

Looks like a Moen to me, not sure but maybe a 1222 cartridge, which you should be able to get at your local hardware or big box for around $20 and a little bit, or if you can hold on for a couple of...

You might get some of it with a sanding pad on an oscillating tool, then finish by hand, otherwise, remove the balusters as was mentioned. But you're not going to get the end grain on the treads...

Okay, just one reminder for anyone over 60, go for tinted primer. I got the trim painted this morning, but what a chore. And I even thought about tint when I got it, but went with alkyd primer so...

He has the advantage of actually being there, but just reading title before getting to the text my mind was already headed there so I think he has you on the right path. Makes perfectly good sense,...

You are correct that universal joints are used on driveshafts, but they are also used on the axles shafts of what I would call "traditional" four wheel drive vehicles, meaning those with actual front...

My experiences anyway, the string melts to itself enough to prevent it from feeding, and you'll see that as you unspool it, sort of sticking to itself like licorice left in a hot car. Since you said...

Bob, you mentioned your shoulder in your post on regular non-powered pole saws, so I think you would likely find a powered one too difficult given that circumstance. You hold the end with the motor...

I agree it could be done as I've moved a few, even loaded one on a trailer one time so someone could take it elsewhere, but 12x16 with a loft sounds like a lot of weight. At a minimum I would be...

I'd find a local welding shop, but since you already mentioned that I'll jump ahead. Just going by what I can see in the pictures, it looks like you should be able to move over and drill some new...

Why are you removing them? If you're replacing boards just rip the old ones out then cut the screws off.

Agree with Marq. Ideally, you want to get your runoff about 10' from your structure, which is the reason that you see long extensions and/or minimal slope away from foundations. And of course you see...

Looks pretty minute to me too, not to suggest ignoring it, but not something that is going to jump right out at you, so, like Mark, I would clean it up and keep an eye on it. A solution of Dawn dish...

I don't see any way those are going to work, so yes, the minimal solution would be to see if you can return what you have and, assuming the store is reasonably nearby, maybe you want to pick up just...

If you were to remove those 8 bolts on top, yes, you would see oil, but if you remove the bolts that I think your belt is hiding from us, that connect the motor and the gearbox, no, you should not...

The one you have sure looks as good a fit as any so I'd go with it. Not saying that fuel filters aren't beneficial, but, as far as I know, they're not going to prevent the probably biggest culprit,...

As Joe said, either way will work, and a valve is usually not essential so if you're adding it because of an issue at the carburetor you're better off going after the needle, seat, and float. But I...

If you were to replace "are more effective" with "cut faster than", then I would say that it is true almost all of the time. Circular saws cut faster than jig saws, angle grinders cut faster than...

I still think that a roll pin would do the job, from the standpoint of strength, as well as the fact that, with a proper size hole, the fit would be snug, no slop like you have with a cotter pin or...

Your second post is just in time because I was just about to say that, in my opinion, flat is fine as long as it's at least 10' from the foundation of your home. But, since it's not, my suggestion is...
