  2. Re: The \'Swiss Army knife\' of buildings???

    My plan is to clear it of most of the interior walls I would put in and just make it a heated shop with a full bath, office and some type of wash tub/sink. With that in mind, I'm trying to come up...

    I have some friends who own a mattress store. First, let me tell you they describe it as a "cash cow." The profits and markups are absolutely HUGE!

    Re: Damaged shock absorbers?

    I noticed tonight that I've still lost some air so I must not have completely sealed the connection that was bad or may have a problem elsewhere. I've still got air pressure but it's noticeably...

    That was one heckuva good explanation. Amazingly though, I think I actually solved the problem before I read it. /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif

    Re: Piping for Compressed Air - PVC?
