One of the best drawings I've seen in quite some time....so clear!!!
I agree with both comments above PLUS once the thinset or adhesive dries that "rope spacer" has to be thrown away. The rubber spaces when thinset or adhesive dries on them you twist them or step on them and they're like new again...ready for next job.
Let's see....copper wiring isn't the diameter of stated sizes... 10 gauge is supposed to be 2.58826 mm but mics out at 2.54 mm.
Ceramic tiles are not what's usually advertised ie: 12 " x 12" tiles are basically 11 1/2" allowing a 1/4" grout line.
And the list goes on and on.
Watch out supply houses...they're coming for you !!!!!
Now if only I could buy a quarter pound hamburger that that the patty actually weighs a quarter pound....damn!
Sounds to me the lawyers found (ummm..."bought"....sshhhhhh) three fools to bring forth this lawsuit against Home Depot and Menards.
That technique can be used to get an even reveal between the double doors and can also be used to get clearance between the door jamb and door if the hinge mortises are a tad too deep. When I accidentally cut too deep when mortising hinges I just cut up some cardboard (solid type cardboard,not box type corrugated cardboard) and use that as a shim.
A drywall lift will kill you easily if at full extension to 10-11' and the brake fails. You're talking about 50-80 lbs of drywall and metal framework falling as fast as a bowling ball if dropped from a 10-11' height. If it doesn't kill you you'll probably wished it did from the get go.
Several years back I had just positioned the drywall into position and like always I gave it a little more tension and walked from under the lift to get on the ladder and I heard the cable snap....less than a second later the boom arms,sheetrock and the rest of the metalwork hit ground level....it broke 3 welds on the lift. NO...it wasn't a Harbor Freight special.
For those that say it won't hurt you I would like to see a video of you standing under a drywall lift while another person cuts the cable and be sure to stand under one of the arms that hold the drywall. Hardhat optional !
Who installs treads (or even decking) with the ring growth (cup) turned upwards???
