Yeah, CC you're probably right. Perhaps trisodium phosphate might be better. They sell it at Lowes.

If you have trouble finding an assistant soon enough, you could use vice grips underneath perhaps with an extension pipe so when it spins it eventually hits a frame rail...

That would have been my next plan, thank you for the idea. Matter of fact I don't have a pair of vice grips and I should get one. My lack of tools due to having a teenage boy in the house who has now left the nest, time for mommy to restock.

You need this!!

Also, I saw your reply to my comment concerning batteries. Just to bounce off of that, you are going to see SO MANY different ways of doing things. Some of them are ideas for now, some later. I started to go crazy, admiring all the complex setups and wanting them. For now, keep it simple. You can always expand later. That is why I am doing what I proposed as my setup, it's simple

Electricity has made our lives much more time friendly for sure.

Where I used to live we had swap meets all over the place. I need to find a good swap meet. Everything is 90 miles away.

I think that my family has reactions to bleach as well so I try to not use it even in laundry. There are so many products and chemicals on the shelf, I've been re-reading the can every time I use them because I don't remember what I read on what can. Yikes. Basically I suppose to paint you need to remove any of the sooty grease/oil from the metal.

Macho & Me

A guy at work told me that he could check out a salvage yard for me for stuff. We were discussing what I want to do. He actually told me that I couldn't use a saw and that I needed to find premade cabinets from a wreck or something.

Oh no no no... you do not tell ME that I cannot do...


It might not be real pretty but... I WILL DO.

There.. now I feel better.
