From an internet series....decided to buy some extra hose.. Needed some glue, too. . And some plastic pipe and a few parts. I cut the 10' pipe down a bit, and then cut the cut-off into a few other parts... I now have some purple, sticky fingers, but...part 1 is installed.. Checked to make sure the hose will screw onto this. Pipe is 3/4" schedule 40..... OK, at the other end of the 8' pipe.. Is the "Hook" that will reach down into the gutter, while I stay on the ground....there is a cap at the end of the hook.. So, with the hose turn up full blast, this is now a sprayer....to wash the leaves and other junk down the gutter toward the down spout. May need to add some "grippy tape" for a handle... Might be safer than me walking around up on the roof....test dry when the weather improves... Glue and the hose were the "big ticket" items....we'll see how it works...
in long lengths if a person has a pipe threader , 20 or 25 foot lengths and to get it home tie it under the pickup. A good way to save money!!!! They use to stock both but probably just one length now. But I don't even know if their are any real carpenters left in this world anymore!
When I started woodworking I heard the phrase about you can never have enough clamps. As you get going you learn real quick, that you can never have enough clamps. We have been making so many cutting boards lately, that I had to add enough clamps to do two more in the set. I was making five at a time, now we will be making seven at a time. If I start making many more than that, I will have to have more room in the shop to put the board while waiting on the glue to dry. I really like the Bessey 1/2" pipe clamps for the cutting board blanks we are making. If you have someone looking for a Christmas idea for you, tell them to get you clamps, you can never have enough.
Who We Are
We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!
Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.
The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.
One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
