I tested to see if there was spark. Nothing coming from the plug (tested with old and new plug) but the coil is definitely producing juice as I was shocked by it. I'm guessing the spark plug wire is…Continue

I'm just doing this as exercise and preparation for military should I decide to enlist. I don't have a frame for the pack, is that something I should get? When I put a 35 lb plate in there it pokes…Continue

Thanks for the advice; I will take it to heart. You definitely need to work hard, especially in this economy, to prove yourself. I know I am up for the work; it's just gonna be some tough years in college. You sound just like my brother! He too is an engineering student at a community college working on his second semester. He chose engineering because it pays well and is in demand.

Good luck on your degree and college.

If you are going to be drilling through 4 x 4 posts, you are going to be much happier with an 18V drill. This drill may get the job done but an 18V drill will do it with much more ease.

DeWalt makes fine tools. If you are going to be alot of projects I would suggest investing in a DeWalt or Milwaukee drill. They make good stuff that lasts forever.

I've been in Minnesota for the past week and a half so I'm afraid not. Did you go?

Until last week, I had 186 points and was ranked 179th. I decided to add my flickr photos to my profile. Thing is I have over 6000 photos in my flickr account. This propelled me from 186 points to over 12000. I alerted Brett about this issue and told him that I do not deserve the prizes associated with the points.

Hi, Sam. It's been a while since I've used Irish Spring so others would probably know more than I do. You might want to try posing the question in the Mr. Clean group. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.
