Re: $780 zoned HVAC instead of $5000 central system

Very interesting Matt- very good points, it sounds like you're on to something with this. I only recently started learning how to identify coolants and fix fridge and auto units. The fridge I fixed was an awesome deal for an awesome newer sidebyside in immaculate condition, and just needed a section...

Re: How to combine balance leads?

I'm looking to combine two 3s balance leads into one 6s jst for easier monitoring. The two 3s strings are in series with each other though which might be an issue? Also, which wire to tie together or eliminate when combining 3s + 3s (8 wires) balance leads into a 6s (7wires)? ____________ I'll also ...

Re: Dogman Dans E bike burns his house.

I guess what would be really good is to have an upward aiming vent connected to a metal hose that leads outdoors. If I was worried about it I'd just have a 'hood' customized from 'somthing or the other' ducted to an attic fan that would be temp activated down at the storage container. I did one for...

I guess that's why it's called 'adverse' possession. You lay claim. But gunfights not included. This actually all started when The SWAT team surprised me down there when I was alone at my 'camp' lol.

Seriously any info on this would help - the County and the Township codes/zoning are unable to confirm just WHO owns a piece of nearby 'unbuildable' ground. There is no parcel boundary or number in the County GIS, but it adjoins (for certain) the typical railroad right away swath and runs out to th...
