Re: My ceiling panel repair

Wow, Yanita... A pleasant blast from the past. Miss her. When removing a ceiling panel for salvage, you have to be extra careful not to break the pretty fragile panel. To be safe, I would say it takes 3 people for the inexperienced. Two to hold and help lower the panel, one person to clip the final...

Re: removing particle board flooring

There are also jamb saw attachments that hook up to a drill. Personally, I use a Rigid One Hand reciprocal saw. This is a small sawzall, with a 1/2" saw travel, compared to a 1 1/4" travel of a big sawzall. The big saw can reach down and cut wire and pipe very easily. Not good! With a 4&q...

Re: removing particle board flooring

:D I wished some saw company would come up with a saw that would cut right along the very edge of the walls. I really hate chiseling & digging out the old PB under the floor joist's. My back isn't what it used to be lying down on the floor for so long. Just tack on a 2x4 or 2x6 support board wit...

Re: My ceiling panel repair

Your wife was being kind with her description. I assume you were all out of white tape at the time of the repair. Gosh I didn't think about the white tape. Have to go to the hardware store & see if they have some. I may have to use alot to cover over the large opening. Firs I have to drop it do...
