  • Heading to Texas to see babies and

    hubby staying home to completely remodel bathroom!!! I'll be gone Thurs to Tues. Tickets were so cheap I couldn't stay home - round trip air for what I usually pay for one way!!! Hubby, son &BIL will be redoing my bathroom from the underlayment to ceiling and everything in between!! Even new plumbing in the basement. Good thing BIL has his own home remodeling business and will be the boss of this project. We bought a new toilet. Had to take it back - didn't fit. Bought new tiles for the floor - had to take them back as we couldn't get bullnose to go along the base to match tile. Got others today. Hubby is so stressed out over this I got my hair cut and bought new shoes today. Sounds fair, huh? LOL
    Anyway I'm glad I'll be in Texas playing with the babies while this mess is going on!!!

    I don't know about your hubby Betty, but when my wife fly's off to visit our kids and Grandkids, I never seem to get anything finished....the boss is not here to tell me if I did it correct or not.....we sure lean on each other don't we. Hope you have a great trip and a good visit.

      New bathroom, new shoes......now that is the only way to go......Have a safe trip, enjoy and phone home before you get there, just to make sure they sweep up after themselves.

        Sounds like a wise choice to me, Betty. And when you come home to your elegant new bathroom, be sure to bring along some bubble bath.

        And, of course, have a great time with your grandkids.

          Sounds like a great trip! Might want to check with the guys before you come home to see if the project is done. If not, extend your vacation!

            Don't have to worry about the mess being cleaned. My BIL's nickname is Hazel!! Remember her? LOL Both he and hubby clean up after themselves very well. My mother in law raised 3 sons on her own on Soc Sec and taught them very well!!!

            Will have before & aft pics.

              Hi Betty - have fun with your grandkids whilst your bathroom is getting the big makeover. I bet that both you and hubby are glad you are out of the way. I just wish I could get Norma to go take a trip whilst I carry out major maintenance and remodeling chores around the house. Life would be a lot easier - LOL!

                I wonder if their effort to offer better quality products may have something to do with it. Seems like they want to market themselves as something more than just a cheap tool supplier. Maybe reducing the number of things eligible for the big discount coupons is part of a campaign to change their image....

                Reply to Question about tilting head saws
                by Bill Wilson
                I've owned both tilting table and tilting head saws. My current saw is an EX-21 (pre-Chinese made version) with the tilting head. I have to say that for beveled cuts, I much prefer the EX over my previous tilting table saws (Craftsman and Dewalt). I think a lot of it is the rack & pinion angle...

                Just a random annoyance . . . . Anyone get frustrated by the Harbor Freight ads that say no exclusions, then you see the details and see "for items under $20", or worse yet, in super small print, "Can not be used for: Atlas, Bauer, Central Machinery, CoverPro, Hercules, Predator, compressors,...

                High ceilings make a house look super elegant. You have the option of doing some cool interior doors that are not possible with 8 foot ceilings. A lot of the large very old houses in my area have those....

                And no annoying dust collection holes, for little pieces to catch on, right?

                Since tilt arm style saws are my personal favorite . . . I can criticize it right? I hate the freaking dust collection mechanism on my King, and prefer the table on the older Green EX that didn't have that....
