    I was considering this as an option now. In Maine, where I am, it will be fine. I inherited a Winchester Model 57 from my uncle. It was made way back when. I refinished it just recently and sighted it in properly. Maybe the trunk wouldn't be a bad place for it.

    Everybody who legally can should. Not at all about self-defense, but just so that dying critters can be taken care of in an safe, clean, and humane manner. I've personally had to do it 5 or so times in recent memory. (Last 3-5 years). I usually just use my handgun, but that wouldn't be an option for most. But a .22 in the trunk is legal everywhere but Chicago and NYC as far as I know.

    OMG YES! I have such an exciting story to tell too but I have no idea where to put the long version/I'm not sure anyone wants to hear it (where should I put it?). We were doing scenarios at uni, I was treating a patient down a mine shaft, we'd been given big dolphin torches but I couldn't hold that, hold C-Spine and cannulate so I got out my little Tactical (brand) Torch shoved it in my mouth (it wasn't real blood just chocolate sauce and food colouring) and got to work! Just emphasis again- NOT real patients, NOT real blood, NOT a real accident (I shouldn't have to do that here but just in case). This guy is actually just covered in chocolate sauce and red food dye [​IMG]

    better half & me prepared the garden for the winter months, when we´ll not be around on a regular basis. LM ST 300 saw some use and 2 rolls of ducktape & now i have to make plans for a little shed for a homeless cat, that decided to live in our garden few weeks ago. our neighbour will feed it, but it´ll have a place 2 stay that i´ll build next weekend. drawing with my spacepens & edc notebooks, writing lists....
    being the detail-nerd i am, i´ll have a hard time 2 keep myself from building balconies and escalators in this thing....

    Installed new switch in dining room with help from the pest.
    Did rather well for it's first job.
    Screwdriver did better than expected.
    Bottle opener helped with break-time.

    I definitely did! There's nothing like being in a 45C tunnel with smoke being pumped into it to get your adrenaline pumping! I was glad to have my little torch

    My specs broke at the side today. Super glue didn't fix it, so I used some gorilla tape that I had in my wallet and taped it. Now working fine. IT WAS VERY LUCKY I HAD SOME GORILLA TAPE WITH ME.

    SAK why the crap do they make those bolts so long? I mean, your the expert on this but I can't say I have ever seen a 3" thick toilet. Have you? If you have it had to be a oddball and not the norm so why the blazes do they make "standard" bolts so flipping long?

    Those particular bolts hold the tank of a Gerber toilet to the Bowl. But I see what you're saying...they (Gerber) have a second set of plastic wing nuts so the blots can be attached to the tank securely, then to the bowl. They need to be long for that reason.

    Also, before you tighten the tank down there is quite a gap due to the Tank to Bowl gasket's thickness. It only sticks through the bowl about 1/2" to 1" BEFORE you tighten it.

    Call me afflicted but,
    I find it hilarious when asking a plumber a question,
    one starts the question by saying "why the crap"

    Got home from work at 0730 ready for bed. No can't do that because the van door isn't locking. Luckily the door card is easy to remove so out came the SAK Alox farmer and a few minutes later I'm looking at the lock mech.
    Then I realise it was the cold snap making the grease on the lock stiff so it wouldn't snap shut (D'oh!).
    Door card back on and a bit of "exercising" of the lock and I could sleep. Now I've slept and the pups have been walked / fed I can go out and clean it up better.
