In the garage no less. Mr fancy over there.
I knew a guy who tried to change the torsion springs on his garage door. The big springs right above the door itself. He was torquing one of them down and he apparently went too tight. It exploded. Pieces of spring just shot out like an IED full of nails. There was meat all over the garage. He lived but one of his arms was permanently fucked up after that. His wife was a real domineering and probably made him try to do it instead of calling a garage door guy.

This idiot put a handle on a pocket door
Looking into painting an existing textured fiberglass exterior door - anyone done this? I assume that like with any paint project, the prep is key. With the fiberglass skin, I'm assuming no sanding like with a wood or metal door. Is there a special primer to use? What would be the most durable finish coat? This door faces SouthEast and gets full morning sun but nothing after about 11:30 or so.
I have one. Just use any exterior primer and paint. The one I have, I stained the inside with their stain kit, I probably should have done that outside also. A few years after I finished my house, I installed a Hunter Green, Pella screen or storm door. By doing this, I voided the warranty on the fiberglass skin. The heat that builds up between the storm door and other door is crazy. The paint will just bubble. A steel door, like my garage service door..... no problem.
The ehat builds up that much even in winter or are you talking not having the screen in in the middle of summer? I'm definitely going to add a storm door eventually as well; didnt know that was an issue.
what ever happened to gridman?
I've had my fiberglass entry door and a storm door for a few years. Zero issues with heat buildup but the screen is open from early Spring until late Fall. I painted it like I would any other door minus the sanding........just a thorough cleaning.
first just peachy and now this???? I cant take it

Paging Dr. Baddfun - paging Dr. Baddfun - or anyone else familiar with a furnace.
I'm changing a (Taco "00") Cartridge Circulator, and the instructions say that after the CC is replaced, to "Fill system with tap water - The system must be filled before operating the circulator. The bearings are water lubricated and should not be allowed to operate dry. ..."
I've turned on the in-line valves with the circulator not installed, and no water flows into the pipe that goes to the circulator.
Any thoughts on how I'm supposed to get water into the lines, aside from disconnecting a higher pipe and pouring water into the then open pipe?
Pictures help a lot in these situations. I'm thinking a check valve somewhere? Is this a closed or open system?
This is why you should be a MOD.
You're too smrt just for gold.
