Re: Help: Tongue and Groove walls - textured over - pics

Typically, this kind of wall construction would have been covered with unshrunk muslin cloth tacked (extensively), then spritzed with water to make it shrink/taut. Then wallpaper glues to the muslin. The house can shift without damaging the wallpaper then. Lots of weird treatments get done to them w...

Re: That awkward moment...

No, not the bike this trip. Me and the wife headed to North Carolina coast in the cage (car) to see her father and celebrate her grandmothers 99th birthday. Awesome! 99, what a life. I can't imagine being on a bike for 3,000 miles. 200 miles and I had severe monkeybutt. 8) Well, I did go to Alaska ...

Re: That awkward moment...

This is where I tell you I had just gotten back from a 3000 mile road trip too...20 hours of driving in the last leg...a couple hours sleep, then a shower...which is when I figured out the stack had crushed the ...

Re: That awkward moment...

Fiberglass? Is it fibercast? That's stuff is expesive and is designed for high concentraction acid and caustic... stuff that will eat through stainless steel and most all metals. Maybe it fiber reenforced plastic meant for roof drains. I'm not really sure, other than I *know* the glues I can get wo...

I think the last 4" fitting I bought was about $15.00. Well, that's true...I'm just worried about the other end of the pipe. How did they co...
