Two words - burrito night.

I thought that was what strawberry scented spray was for.

Funny, I looked at that IB sub pic and thought, oops, the problem is that he didn't leave any room for the woofers.

Mike Holmes was in my neighbourhood a couple of streets over from me, about 10yr ago, to cure someone's basement flooding. The houses here at that time were barely 7-8 yrs old. I really wish there were someway to blacklist these shoddy contractors and get them out of the business altogether.


Half of communication is listening. You can't listen with your mouth.

Depends on what you served for din-din.


Always call the place you live a house. When you're old, everyone else will call it a home.

As Mike notes they just change the name of the company and continue on their way ripping people off.

I used to watch Mike all the time. Is he still making new episodes?


The only reasonable argument for owning a gun is to protect yourself from the police.

My coach has used them in a previous gym and he's confortable w/ their use and my use will be less strenuous.

My question is this, is it OK to drill a pilot hole to ease screwing it in? Or will that weaken the attachment? It's about 2" long, maybe a 1/4" in diameter.


Pilot holes are required. All these rated lag type devices have a recommended hole size, but I usually just eye ball it and use a bit two or three sizes smaller than the shank (non threaded part). Start too small, try to thread it, and if it feels like you're about to twist it too hard, go a little bigger.

The real problem is making sure you use the right type of eye-let. If it is not shouldered, you can not side load it. If you do, it will either break or pull out.

That sounds like something that would be included in a booklet that comes with the DVD Bob mentioned earlier in the thread wink .

Cam, Mike has a new show, Holmes Inspection. It is virtually the same only you get to watch him do his inspection thing and make comments about how the inspectors are now the bad guys for not picking up on the shoddy work. He has deffered the actual contract work to Damon who now runs the crew.
