  1. Hah, that's what I thought!

    I knew there had to be a reason besides material costs that the brass ones cost so much (and that the big boxes don't stock many of them...).

    I was planning to go brass, but I just couldn't...
  2. Circ saw sounds good to me

    Only trouble is, depending on if you're have to cut right up to a corner, it's hard to get the circ saw in there all the way. I have a little cordless circ saw that's great for stuff like this.

    Makes sense

    Still wondering about toolaholic's comment though about greenboard being "wrong." Is he referring to the strength issue someone else mentioned?

    Thanks to all here for restoring my flagging sense of sanity! :-)

    So how can I un-stick myself?

    Rio -- thanks, I eventually found two of those.

    Trouble is, they don't really look very soil-friendly on the inside to go in the direction I would need them to run. There are rough transitions in...
  6. Learn to clean a brush properly

    ...or I would say you shouldn't be painting. :-) Once you can clean a brush right, it will last for a long long time. I know this seems simple, but my girlfriend for example prefers not to spend...

    no greenboard, huh? redguard instead?

    Interesting comment about 16" centers for normal ceilings...it seems like I'd heard that many truss built houses might even have 24" now.

    Anyway, I was wondering if the posters could explain *why*...
  8. Flange: "should" be level to tile floor???

    I was talking with a plumber that was quoting some work, and he suggested that if I'm installing tile, really it would be better to put my flange on top of the CBU, but level to the top of the tile,...

    The capsules didn't work for me either

    I had some fun recently soldering 3/4" ball valves into my main supply lines so I can isolate part of my house easily. I tried those vitamin E like capsule thingies and they didn't work well for me...

    How to tie copper to ABS DWV?

    So I have old revent and drain lines that I've cut off that were 1-1/4" copper DWV, which seems to be somewhat rare. I have to tie this to 1-1/2" ABS to build a new section for a moved sink.

    I'm curious about water tests too...

    Okay, so I fear I'm gonna have to do the same thing, so I have some questions about this also. Since the experts are already here...

    Poll: This was an HD special

    It's real sharp looking, but I think I'll probably take it back. I should have known there were two "lines." I hear it's that way with a lot of things, including yard sprinkler components.

    Not what I meant, sorry hj

    Nonono, I certainly didn't mean to offend hj, I'm sure his advice is great! Actually, I lived in Arizona for a short while, so I have nothing against that great state either. My poor attempt at...

    Poll: How are these faucet brands?

    In doing some reading here, I'm surprised at how well regarded the major american brands are -- it seems like often the popular brands are actually junk. I have my reservations about PP, having just...

    Arrestors: how close is "close"?

    First time poster, be gentle. :-)
