@ September 3, 2013 10:45 PM in what does the "f and m" mean in f&m fing?

Female and male?:) I don't even know what the thing is!

Homer gas line

@ August 20, 2013 3:47 AM in conversion liability question

Thats an exciting project for sure.  It's too bad some branches are too cost prohibitive.
I understand you replaced Rich C's boiler up in Anchor Point a few months ago. He said running a line to him would cost a small fortune.
I think we have ran into each other at Rich's place. It was the day after Thanksgiving in 1999. He ran the place out of oil. I had flown down from Anchorage.

In Homer Alaska?

My bet is you are just fine to touch anything like this!
BTW, how is the gas line thing going along?

Whew, holy cow Bob

@ July 30, 2013 2:44 PM in Gas Pressures

Now I don't mean to touch on your legal approach but you forgot the ever popular pain and suffering;)

Simon,can you post some pics.?

@ July 26, 2013 5:48 PM in floor made of framing planks turned on edge: radiant heat below and finish above?

I mean plenty of them ,like the neighborhood. Being from there it would be a trip!
Oh BTW Fairbanks has been over 85 degrees lately. It's been cookin' up here this summer.

That would be trip..

@ July 23, 2013 1:51 PM in steel compression tanks collapsing?

you know, to watch a 55 gallon drum implode.
BTW in Dan's Pumping Away book, on page 21, he mentions, and has a diagram of a tank collapsing. Hmm


@ July 23, 2013 1:38 PM in I was all set to order my boiler...

TT is top shelf to be sure. And now for the mystery question. How did they get a name like Triangle Tube?

Fitting question

@ June 25, 2013 3:56 PM in Fitting question

About 25 years ago I plumber friend of mine noticed a street ell in a gas piping system I did. I was told that you shouldn't ever use St. ells in a gas system because the male section of it has a reduced inside diameter than regular pipe.
Well 25 years later I just heard the same thing
BTW the inspector never said anything and only now did I hear this again.
Truth or fiction?

Geez, Let me guess!

When you two aren't doing heating...You're writers for a fortune cookie company?:)

About dumb

@ June 20, 2013 6:09 PM in Dumb

I'm confused. Now back to our fearless leaders original post. Let me see if I have this right.
1) Guy walks into Ford dealer.
2) Gut sits and reads some auto enthusiast periodicals praising vehicles other than Fords
3) Guy meets with salesman.
4) Guy drives off lot with new Ford product.
5) Car dealer goes to bank.
Believe you me I'm no stranger to the word dumb
Man that word covers plenty of ground.
Hope this helps:)

Just wondering

@ June 13, 2013 4:25 PM in How the Europeans do it?

Chris, where  here in LA did you attend school and when? I briefly attended the public system there. What I remember most was the court ordered busing to my school in Woodland Hills. What a different world!

While were bashing China...

Look at it from their point of view. Every day they wake up the trillion dollar plus of US debt, they bought, is worth less everyday. But they're still buying. So things do come around full circle:).

What I like is that...

@ June 4, 2013 2:49 PM in Amateur Hour gas boiler install

coil of copper in the first Pic.  Looks like expansion joint to the Max but with quite an artistic flair. Gotta get one:)

Easy now

@ May 18, 2013 4:42 AM in Lofgren case settles...

No one needs that. In the law and insurance business you have to have an acceptance of what it is. There are things that are going to happen which you may not like. You have to live with it.
Those lines are what I was told by a very prominent lawyer along time ago.

Why not?

@ May 15, 2013 3:39 AM in Plumbing Forum?

It's those background checks that get tricky!:)


@ May 14, 2013 1:34 PM in Plumbing Forum?

I wish the guy who started this whole thing would just ask the damn question instead of seeking permission:)

Kitchen faucets??

@ May 12, 2013 5:24 PM in Need opinions on kitchen faucet brands

It must be Mother's day. While you are out and about, in addition to the new faucet, pick her up a new chain saw :)!! Sounds like a Hallmark moment!


@ May 12, 2013 2:16 PM in Steam at Work

What a trip! I grew up around that area. Went to a high school about 100 miles east.
Great stuff!

Can you actually do that?

@ May 7, 2013 6:12 PM in Taco on Fox Business News

I would love to walk through the factory and watch this stuff being put together. I'd pay for it. Taco has a kind of Smithsonian aura!

Too much stuff

@ May 3, 2013 2:32 AM in Lesson learned NEVER let the wife tag along to the home show

We get a delivery from UPS or Fedex about once a week. Most of the time, what it is, isn't made known to me.
I've made it very clear to both of the drivers that we are seeing way too much of each other. This week the UPS gal saw me standing in the doorway dreading yet another package. She started this shuffle with her shoulders and hips and loudly humming the tune from Jaws.
 Well today I saw the auto child seat on the garage floor.Oh no I thought, she's coming home with something so big that the back seat had to be flipped down. Luckily she was just helping a friend with the SUV. Sigh of relief. Whew, that was a close one:).

I looked and could not find any. Can you come up with some literature?
