  1. What started out as a upgrade to my 12 inch sander spiraled off course and took me here. Plumbed the Dust collection from closest stub down the wall, across the other wall, then finally along the back wall to meet the sander. As with any project I had to make sacrifices. Hardest one here was using a short 90 degree bend around the corner. Normally long sweeps only is the rule of thumb. That works great, most of the time. I tried using a longer sweep but it brought the line of pipe out too far and that interfered with something else, that also would have forced me to move something else. Basically I need 10,000 sq ft shop and the problem is solved. In the meantime this works, and I have not won the lottery or had a relative leave me a mint so we are stuck with it for the moment. LOL
  2. 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!
  3. I am trying to find someone to help a pastor who had open heart surgery. He and wife have been living in a small camper for almost three years. Someone gave him a doublewide that needed a lot of work. His medical problems have taken all his money set aside to remodel the trailer. Calling on people I know, we have done everything but the plumbing, and I can't find anyone to do it. It seems that it stayed connected to water system during a winter and some of the pipes underneath busted. The pipes are larger o.d. and, I have been told, is made of poly butyl. Am I going to be able to find adaptors to replumb using cpvc and retain the poly butyl? Seems folks are shying away from this for some reason! Any experience in this type repairs/suggestions? Thanks!
  4. I need to lengthen a water supply line to a sink. The ½” copper supply line routs up through the bottom of the cabinet. Questions: 1) To lengthen the supply line I wanted to add a coupling, an extension, and a shut-off valve. What is the minimum distance I should try to maintain between the sweated on coupling and the sweated on shut-off valve? When I sweat on the shut-off valve I do not want to create a leak at the previous sweated on coupling . 2) What is the minimum distance I should have between the cabinet floor and the shut-off valve? I do not have anything which is fire retardant to help protect the cabinet from the torches heat/flame. The coupling and supply extension will be installed after the old cabinet is removed and before the new cabinet is installed. The shut-off valve will be installed after the new cabinet is installed. I want to be able to sweat the fittings, but I only have a few successes under my belt. I am willing to learn and do. Looking for your advice. Thanks Danl
  5. Who though of this and why? Did the muni' water supply go negative somewhere and hoses started siphoning dirty water?
