I broke the shut off valve at the wall (soooo glad I turned off the water to the whole house ), had to make two trips to the hardware store, and cleaned up lots of nastiness..... ewwwww


I'm having a much needed smoke break before I put the toilet back down. I sure hope I get it seated on the wax ring properly on the first attempt. I bought a second ring anyway, just in case I mess up the first one.


I can't wait to take a shower. . .

Maybe you can turn the extra gasket into a wax sculpture or something. . .

Actually I ended up needing to use both wax rings. The floor is built up around the drain pipe flange thingy, so one extra tall ring wasn't enough. I had to double stack two extra tall rings just to make it all seal up. And that witch's brew they call wax is weird nasty stuff. I got some on my fingers and it took forever to get my hands clean... blech...

I had nightmares last night. I heard water running for hours, and the toilet backed up and sewage was flowing into my workshop and ruining all my planes!

At one point I woke up and really did hear water running, but it was just a roommate taking a shower. Whew!

One half of our street was repaved today, and the other half will be done tomorrow. I'm really tempted to write something in the asphalt before it hardens.

Well, I just sprayed the 2-part clear coat onto my mini-SR. I didn't have the HVLP gun dialed in at first with the air pressure and paint flow settings. I got a bit of orange peeling going on... too much air, causing it to dry/atomize too much before hitting the plane, which prevents the paint from flowing out level. After letting the first coat flash off for 10 minutes, I hit it with the second coat, which was a bit wetter. I think it'll work out OK. I might need to do a little bit of sanding and buffing on the orange peel areas, but I'll decide later whether or not to go through any more effort. A lot of stuff on this plane was just trying out new things anyway.

Now I have to resist the temptation to keep poking my finger on the plane to see if it's dry, even though I know it'll take a few hours.
