Most of us acquire material things as we go through life. They can be useful, like the set of pans your mom gave you when you first left home. They may be forgotten fashion items, like your favorite mini-skirt and platform shoes from the 1970s. Or they could be items that pull at your heart-strings when you look at them; the old photos of your grandparents and the simple drawings you did as a kid. You’ve hoarded all this paraphernalia over the years. Each time you move, you hide them in the attic or in a spare closet. And you never get around to unpacking them until the next time you need to move house. So the stairway will have to be modified – high on my priority list. My husband’s partner suggested an elevator – that is extreme! I will aim for a new stairway and something under it that is efficient and hopefully easy on the eyes like what we have here.
Welding is the process of fusing together metal or thermoplastic materials to form objects. Arc welding does the same, but what makes it different from other types of welding is that it uses very high supply of power. This creates an electric arc between the material and the electrode, effectively casing the surface of the material to heat and melt. During this melting process the material is bonded together to give it the desired shape.
As with most tools, the more advanced painting tools are typically powered in some way. Since they are powered, these tools will more than likely have a larger area effect, so only use them for large area jobs, or jobs that you really need to do in a hurry.
I’ve never been a cold weather person. I love the beach, I love the sun, the sand, the water (the bikinis!). When I was in high school and college and my friends would take ski trips to Vermont, I would never go because…I hate the cold and I hate the snow. The idea of being outside all day and being wet and cold isn’t appealing to me. But if you’ve never seen the snow, I guess it’s magical. If you don’t have to shovel it, I guess it is beautiful.
Cordless models which don’t require a compressor, and therefore a hose are now widely available. Whether you’re a professional contractor or a DIY homeowner, you’ll find you get the job done in less than half the time it would have taken with a hammer and nails.
Several years ago I decided to paint my living room walls. I found the color of quality paint I wanted on sale at the local hardware store, but the synthetic paint brushes that the salesman recommended were more expensive than the natural bristle brushes on sale.
