    Don't waste your money on those mini drills! The really small ones don't have points on them and don't cut worth a carp! Get the tiny drills from micro mart instead! Cost a little more but work!😉

    Same question. Can Purple Power be used in this ultrasonic cleaner?
  3. JohnU added a post in a topic better light   

    Sam's Club in my area carries a 4 ft LED shop light that out shines fluorescent tubes at $35 a unit! I'm replacing the lighting in my whole workshop!

    Kinda wonder what the reaction would be here if these cars were made out of plastic from someone's spare parts box and sitting on a table. Does't seem all that different from some of the stuff I've seen in the contest magazines except there made from real car scrap parts! Just sayin'!😜
  5. JohnU added a post in a topic Light bulb for paint drying?   

    I built a down draft paint booth that uses the same filter as my furnace 1 x 16 x 25 inches. The working area above is about 20 - 25 inches and the front is slightly slanted so I can lay a piece of plexiglass over the front without it falling off. I mounted a ceramic light fixture to a small piece of wood that can easily be removed from my booth when I'm painting. To dry paint I use a 100 watt lightbulb. The fixture is mounted as high as I can get it in the booth on the back wall so it's not too close to my parts. Using an outdoor liquid thermometer inside the booth with the light and closed with the plexiglass, the temperature only gets to 97 degrees. To be sure, I tested the heated space with a junker body and it survived no melting after sitting over night. May have got lucky because it works great for drying enamal piant in about 2 to 3 days! But then, I use Donn Yosts paint method too!😉 Lately it been getting more difficult to get 100 watt bulbs may try 75's instead

    Wait.....Goodwill sells stuff on eBay? I thought it was to benifit the community!

    Heads up, kits at Goodwill
    Just a heads up to anyone near the Northfield Village Ohio Goodwill outlet store.  I dropped off a few boxes of car kits totaling about 125 kits. Needed to clear the garage before the wife threw them out! LOL! It's ok, still have a huge stash! They range from 1930's classics to recent drag rails. Not sure when they will set them out for sale, since I donated them Saturday. Happy hunting!

    I could be wrong but it looks like you would have to roll the windows down  to be able to open the doors!
  9. JohnU added a post in a topic Ad Banners   

    Yea, I get these too. I don't visit adult sites so why these other ones show up seems odd! The ad banner has a feedback option that allows you to report the ad as repetitive, inappropriate, or irrelevant. Yet no matter if I tag it inappropriate it will still pop up the same ad in a different thread on this forum. Very annoying! Gonna try the ad blocker like Ace suggested and have my wife model some Victoria Secret for me while I'm at it.... Andy!

    Thanks. I'm running Firefox on my laptop will try your advice.  My iPhone doesn't get this junk.

    Ad Banners
    I get that these ad banners generate revenue and aren't going anywhere anytime soon, but how do I keep these ads for Asian, Middle eastern or what ever girls dating sites from popping up?! I mark them as "inappropriate" yet they still show up! WTF! I don't get these ads anywhere else!

    how about "Bash Kits Korner" ?!!
  15. JohnU added a post in a topic It doesn't make any sense   

    Accually, I was joking!
    At least they're serving a purpose as advertising rather than being crushed as cash for clunkers!
    Even if I could afford and had the room to "save" these cars, I wouldn't have time or live long enough to restore them anyway!
    Kinda like the model stash I have!
