Re: Mid-Century Moto Mecca Makeover

Love, Love, Love - the license plate on the third bike. Of course the build and the garage as well. Another fellow PDX'er here, actually just made the jump across the river, but still local.

Re: Kitchen island and avoiding a column

Don't think this is legal for permanent fixtures, ok for extension cords and low voltage. Hardwired outlets are considered permanent.

Re: What did you do "IN" your garage today?

Sprayed a total of 16 gal primer and paint in the 3 car garage. Glad to be done and breathing again. Even with masks on, I felt like I was going to pass out at time.

Re: Good cutting torch setup

I love my Smith setup, not cheap, but decent US made quality. There is also Harris and Victor for decent sets.

Re: Changing 240v 20amp to 50amp for Welder

Use a volt meter, at the very minimum you should have one of these before doing any electrical work.

Re: Power Supply

Close, what you probably need is an automotive/motorcycle battery and a trickle charger unless you plan on running the lights full time, then you need a real charger. Most power supplies that can...

Re: Structured wiring plan?

I think you have the right type of wiring. You could probably cut back on the coax to a single line (make sure you use RG6 (quad shield if possible)). If you ever wanted to run HDMI, that is possible...

Re: What are/(were) your most USELESS tools?

I would have to say 8 point sockets, never had a need for one of those. Now if I was a professional garage door installer that might be a different story on those springs.

Re: Ideas to make a lift fit and take advantage of an odd space?

Nice job, really liked the animated PDF. Also what sort of costs are we talking about if you don't mind me asking.

Re: Power pole question

The meter box should go on the outside of the house, unless you are looking for a temp setup during construction, then a simple pole should do the trick, it is not going to stay there very long.

Re: Want to Support a Small USA Company With a Cool Product?

Re: 30+ year old pole barn - makeover/facelift (lots of pics)

The item you are talking about is the pressure relief, it is used to bleed the system and will also bleed off pressure when the top of the column has been reached by the carrier.

Re: Purpose of the 'floating' slab

There are many pole barns that don't have a concrete floor, just dirt, so I don't think it is there to keep the poles from moving towards each other. The poles should be 4 feet or so in the ground,...

Re: Car lift safety

If you do end up with Chinese made under hoist jack stands as a minimum replace the bolts and nuts with quality grade 8 or 10.9 (metric) hardware. The biggest problem is the lack of quality on the...
