But almost everything else I own came from HF.
GOOD hand tools are essential. I avoid HF for those as well.

I like the entry way of the IC better. Its got a WIDE door and stairs. The Thomas is sorta "pinched" at the opening.
I just want to replace the e-door on mine with something bigger than 24". The next row over is a 35" row.

My last shorty had three heaters, too. I think this one has three.

Can't have too many, IMO.

Every time I post a video here it gets that one thumbs-down.
I just wanted to publicly invite whoever it is to engage in a real discussion about why they lurk around just to troll and hate on people who are active in the community here.
I was the first view, Christopher was second. That third hit was the jerk.
Who were you beefing with when you got canned?

Which time???

I've got no beef with anyone. Till they start trolling my or others here nonstop.
Every so often a troll/bully/whatever will show up on here, and being that I'm on here a LOT and I'm always in the conversations it seems I'm the main target.
I've taken a couple "for the team" but it was all worth it.

I'm not going to name anyone. That could be grounds for another ban.

Nah, I grew up in a house built in the early 1900's. I was nearly ten by the time we got an AC unit and it was just a window shaker in the living room.
I worked for 12 years in a HOT steel fab shop running a huge plasma table.
I can live without ac, especially in a vehicle with the windows open.

But when its 65 degrees or below, I need heat. LOTS of it.

I dunno if the house in Homestead had AC or not. Every house after I was 8 certainly did. I don't remember the heat and humidity of Tallahassee bothering me much as a kid. But I just can't do it any more.


Saturday I was working on the bus. Low 80s, fairly low humidity... I was still dripping sweat. Shirt was soaked thru and it was one of the wicking t-shirts.

Even in milder climates bus work is HOT work.

Fixed the quote for you.


Saturday was a VERY nice day if you were standing still. ANY work and it's Sweatville. I'm also a VERY heavy sweat-er. The gf wasn't dry by any means but she wasn't soaked. Out hiking with her or a coworker, I'll come back and can literally ring out my shirt. The other two have wet armpits and that's it. The funny thing about it all is I drink less water than either of them and don't get dehydrated as easy as they do.
