    Chainsaw stalling

    I know this post is several days old, but you are probably running lean on the idle/low speed . You can try to get a little richer by turning the "L" screw out (counterclockwise) 1/4 turn at a time, and check with each adjustment. I would also adjust the "H" screw out the same way until it...

    Price for Black Iron Pipe?

    All the black iron pipe is to be used for special applacation of parts made with a Lathe and a wire welder. Most small lengths will be used as spacers. I have since returned the 3/8 and I purchased solid steel which is close to the same OD but will have to be drilled. The 1/2" can be used by...

    Ant hills in lawn

    I have had good results from saturating mounds with CLOROX straight from the bottle. This suggestion was given to me by a Chemist. Some grass kill can be expected but grass is usually dead under the mound already.

    What is this?????----Septic Tank Riser

    My new home is about 20 years old and I have lived here about two years. The PO told me that this was a "septic tank cleanout cover". I am not having a problem with the system, but out of curiousity, I removed the cap and I have no idea what this set up is. It appears that this is a...

    Water Saving Toilet.

    I have three nearly new toilets in a new to me home. They work perfect but, as you know, use a lot of water. I have been told that a special "flap valve" can be purchased to allow water saving or regular flush. Do these work as advertised?

    Can you tolerate ONE More question about Sub-Panel?

    The subpanel will be fed off a 50A breaker from the main panel. The single conducter leads will be in plastic conduit. This sub will supply power to a small 220v welding machine and a 220v space heater. All 110v is already fed from main panel. This is an older welder and only has a three prong...

    A simple Question

    That"s what I am thinking--On this same subject, a few years ago, I purchased a "Westinghouse" swag light cord and ,of course, it was Made in Communist China. The hookup instructions stated it didn't matter how the wires were connected. I knew IT DID!! So I eMailed the company and voiced my...

    A simple Question

    When working with simple 110v cords, such as lamp cord, where there is only two wires, I know that the small spade is the hot. Some of these cords have an identifying "rib" molded into the outer covering. I have always thought the "rib" was to identify the "hot", however I have recently found...

    Could you helpful people stand one more simple question??

    hj--I still don't understand where the neutral wire would be connected. The green wire is only a jumper to cnnect the motor to the housing. I would really like to get this set up but I want to do it right.
