Have you seen all of those generators out there that bear a very similar appearance to each other? Those are the clones of the bigger more expensive generators (usually last years models) that are mass produced and then sold cheap at the big box stores. In reality most of these are actually very solid generators that can last many years if properly cared for.

In today's video I want to help you decide on the right generator for you..... and think about the trade-offs you will need to make such as:
*Fuel Consumption
*Noise
*Storage Space
*Wattage

With all that is going on in the world I just wanted to share some of my views on being self sufficient and some of the (expensive) mistakes that can be avoided along the way. I have personally lived off grid and sold many of these different types of Generators so I am not just some salesman telling you to buy a machine I have no experience with.

The four types of generators you should consider are:
#1 Whole house backup with transfer switch - Very expensive to do correctly (usually starts at about 5 to 7k)
#2 Mixed Use - Such as a welder/generator combination. Usually best for people in the trades who use the generator part sparingly
#3 Standard Generator - Usually much more power than needed, eats lots of fuel, very noisy......and great for jobsites or commercial use
#4 Inverter Generator - Great for Camping, extended power outages, offgrid living, uses only a little fuel, very quiet, compact size

#4 Is my personal recommendation for most of us ;-)

We found the leak!! As most things it turned out to be a combination of issues.....
#1 The area at the end of the tub which was just a big hole was collecting spray and mist and then running down the end of the tub and onto the floor
#2 The plumbing underneath was filthy and partly plugged and also had a bad seal where it went into the floor, so after a while it would start to back up and to top it off there was a sag in the pipe
#3 This was another big one...even though the corner bead looked intact the seal on it was broken and had to be recaulked on the top edge of the corner bead AND the bottom edge as well which can be a real pain in the butt especially at the end where your fingers cant fit to well......
#4 Poor ventilation in the bathroom also caused a lot of mold growth on the wall and ceiling as you can see in part 1 of the video. This was scrubbed off and then treated with a mold spray. When I get a chance this summer I will repaint the ceiling with a paint that has a mold resistant additive added to it. (The additive is pretty cheap just a couple dollars per gallon)

Good Morning Everyone!!

I just wanted to share my kitchen with you and what I do NOT like about it and some things you should NEVER do in your kitchen such as:
Joining strips on the counter top (dowel it instead)
Corner Beads
Keeping Appliances that are in good condition

and most importantly re-using the cabinet boxes and re-doing the faces to save money ;-)

So I have been learning another hard lesson this last week and a half called the 3,2,1 and none lesson. My intake water pumped died and I used my back up pump which lasted a week and then died as well (this pump had been previously resurrected from the dead once before) So I learned the lesson if you have 1 backup you actually have NO backups....hence the 3 is 2 and 2 is 1 and 1 is NONE........... and then one thing that is a little challenging of living in a smaller country is that you don't have the selection you would have in the larger countries such as just going to Home Depot or Bunnings and picking up a new one. Fortunately for me I have a friend who repairs and builds commercial/industrial cnc's who happened to have the small pump you see in the picture. Now for me I never would have guessed that small a pump could service a 2.2 kw spindle but it actually out performs the big one in the picture.

Ready to make some custom cutting boards? Then follow along and if you like what you see then order one from my site ;-)

Some of the projects we worked on this last week:

A preview of some of the weeks projects that aren't quite finished yet including a new line of Corbels (brackets) that I am working on developing...... something a little fancier than you will find at the big box stores ;-) Also working on finishing some custom mallets and a new line of cutting boards as well

Stay tuned for the finished products!!

Here I am making a set of rosettes for an Amazon order. These are perfect for remodels, new builds, and adding some class to the mass produced track homes out there.

Well I have been needing some wood mallets for a while (ok the last 3 years) and finally got around to making a few for the shop..... so follow along and see how simple they are to make. Don't worry if you don't have a CNC you can always use a bandsaw, jigsaw, drill, etc....

Why you should always use Antisieze where the ball screws go into the mounting blocks/bearings...... otherwise you'll have to beat them off or cut them off even after just 6 months!!

In this series I am going to tear down my home built CNC and show you what I thought I did right and a few things I definitely did wrong. Hopefully this can save some other people on the learning curve I went through.

Lets talk about collet nuts and why you need spares!! Also get yourself some extra parts to keep on hand just in case........ you don't want to be waiting a month for parts when you have orders to fill......
