Ready for a Home Makeover? Here’s How To Do It.

Today people are looking for ways to improve their homes for better living and more enjoyment. Investing a little time and money will go a long way to transform your home into the pride of the neighborhood. Curb Appeal – Let’s begin outside. Mow the grass, pull the weeds, edge the lawns and give the bedding areas the attention and maintenance they deserve. Liven up the planting areas with perennials for substance, and then go for color with annuals. Select a color scheme such as reds...

On The Workbench #1: Heated Handgrips for a Snowblower

02-24-2015 04:01 PM by ontheworkbench | 9 comments »

When I bought my snow blower, I only wanted one wide enough to fit through the side door on my garage, so I settled for a 26” wide unit. When looking across various models, I noticed that several premium (and larger) models had heated hand grips. After two winters with my snow blower, I thought it would be time to try to upgrade my basic rubber hand grips to heated one. I made a couple of videos on it, the first one shown how I did it for my MTD manufactured Troy-Bilt, and a second one...

Tips for Using Recycled Rubber Tires

03-19-2013 12:32 PM by Duke Mazzello | 0 comments »

Shredded rubber tires are a valuable product with a variety of uses for landscaping and creating safe surfaces for playgrounds and equestrian arenas. Rubber chips provide high energy absorbency, very low compaction over time and excellent stability. Traditional mulching products compact and degrade, sometimes requiring annual application. By comparison, wood chips as fill for a playground must have an extra 25% of depth added to allow for compaction. Recycled rubber does not compact and...

An Upholstery Primer #1: Strip the old stuff!

10-25-2012 01:33 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 12 comments »

Aside from a piece of furniture to strip, you’re going to need some tools. A little introduction here. Wire cutters – I didn’t actually use those pliers. I found a very old, dull and loose pair of wire cuters. You are going to pull thousands of staples, dull (not notched) wire cutters can grab staples without cutting the in half. Don’t bring out your best! Rubber mallet – That sucker is as heavy as a carpentry hammer. Unless you are used to chiseling...

Door Frame Rot Repair - No cutting

07-25-2012 01:11 PM by Sailor | 2 comments »

My soon to be father-in-law mentioned to me that his door frame was rotting. He asked me if I thought it was fixable or if he should just go and buy a new door. I told him that it’s definitely fixable and saved him the cost of the new door! All it cost was the $18 for the epoxy putty. Here is a video of how I did it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GnHya_2HPGo <iframe src=”http://www.youtube.com/embed/GnHya_2HPGo” height=”480” width=”640̶...

That old house #8: Down to the wire - crunch time

06-29-2012 03:08 AM by BillyJ | 7 comments »

July 6, 2011. At 7:53 a.m., to be exact. I began my journey into a world of changes. Changes in design, scope, content, and finally – me. As Jerry Garcia would say – what a long, strange trip it’s been. I’m doing many things at the same time. Although I had plans for various aspects of the kitchen to follow a sequence, today just proved how quickly my priorities change (I should say – forced to change). The customer purchased a small TV/VCR that will be mounte...
