  1. A true Red Neck Rally πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Gotta love it πŸ‘
  2. Oh yeah, Turned 44 yesterday. Worked my normal day, had a nice dinner, and was in bed by 8:00 πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I did buy a nice piece of new coral for myself though. I give myself the best gifts 🎁 😁
  3. @HarryPotter I , myself would use a lockwasher. Make sure to pre-drill your screw holes with a very sharp bit and I think you willbe fine πŸ‘
  4. @Sancho You should look at the Red Sea E-170. It is similar to your Solana, an AIO style tank,but with a much better design and quality equipment. I ran my solana for 6 years untill I too had a seam failure. Something to think about πŸ€”
  5. @Sancho hopefully they are just holding them untill you get another glass box. Fortunately you wife was home when the seam burst, and that it wasnt the bottom seam.I was lucky enough to be home both times I have gone thru that experience. I dont envy you, its a trying time. You know you got the bug, so dont get on the β€œ well maybe I will take a break” shit πŸ‘
  6. sicce syncra 1.5 stops running

    These are very reliable pumps, but they do require maintenance. Pull out your pump and give it a good cleaning. They are easy to disassembled and only take a few minutes to clean ! It sounds like the impeller is dirty and having a hard time on restart. White vinnegar will quickly disolve build up. You will also find the intake will be particularly clogged as well. Sounds like an easy fix to me πŸ‘
  7. Rock flower anemone package deal anyone ? 6 RFA’s large flowers are in a basket and ready to go. PM me if you might be interested πŸ‘ Making some changes in the softy reef 😁
  8. Well, it 9:00 and everyone has gone home early worried cause we got about 1” of snow πŸ€” . I am a little bit drunk and was just running outside with Duke, the Frenchie, who is experiencing his first little bit of the snow. Dogs a much more fun than In Law Family πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Merry Christmas Lounge πŸ‘
  9. OMG- the train derail tragedy sure has jacked up our area. Our hearts are with the family’s and loved ones affected! It sure makes you realize how much traffic our interstate hiways support. An everyday 30 minute commute can become 7 hours 😫😫 when all you have are 2 lane roads to travel.
  10. Its so nice to know that I am not the only one. Have to make a special trip to the Recycling yard for cardboard alone. She overflowed our recycling bin, then ademately voiced how the β€œMess” must be gone before guests arrive for the holidays 😫 It wouldnt be a β€œmess” if you didnt buy so much shit πŸ˜‚
  11. Dont you dare finish it Jack , that would be all bad πŸ˜‚
  12. http://www.workshoppages.com/ws/misc/wood-hardness-chart.pdf Better to do it as a link, so I dont clog up the thread πŸ‘
  13. @HarryPotter It looks like it possible could be based on the Janka Hardness of the species of lumber. http://tinytimbers.com/janka.htm I am not familiar with the model of Moisture Meter. https://www.wagnermeters.com/shop/mmc220-extended-range-moisture-meter/?gclid=CjwKCAiA6qPRBRAkEiwAGw4Sdpxob1Fnolx5McjNqFcb4OuNwcN8MODJC5B2RKQ7xmZs8noOOFnJ7xoCzHIQAvD_BwE We have several different meters, but this is my choice for ease of use.
  14. @HarryPotter we use plain anodized grade 8 Torx bolts with locktight on every bolt. They are all hand tightened and then torked with a wrench to the manufacturers reccomended specs. Remember, it takes us a lot of time when we do our planer.
