I disagree with most on here regarding muounting the braces. I don't want any holes in my shingles. Lets say you just reroofed your house for $15k and 35 year shingles and you want to rely on a dab of silicone to keep the water out for the next 35 years?
You can mount the bracket on a rafter but...
That's how I cleaned my last setup. Remove the tele pipe, insert brush,tape a bag on the pipe sticking through the ceiling, poke a hole in the bag and attach fiberglass poles as you progress up the chimney. Worked a charm.
In an obtuse way, that was my point. I tried to buy a PE 2 years ago. Actually paid for it and weeks later checked with the dealer to get an ETA. The dealer called PE and they said they had no idea when the T6 might be in production. He implied that there might be production issues.
I've been driving by their shop weekly for about 10 years, I'm sure this sign has been hanging in front of the shop for at least that long. I think it was down for a bit during the summer to be repainted...:rolleyes:
Getting 1500 cloves of garlic ready for planting is a lot of work!
One of my favorites is "Rod Stone", developed locally here on Saltspring Island about 20 years ago. Very large heads, large cloves.
Wife's favorite is Nootka Rose, also a local variety developed on the San Juan Islands.
Hope things are ok. We've had a week of just below freezing temperatures which is very unusual for us. Mostly kale left in the garden but it doesn't mind the cold. A few weeks ago we had a hail storm pass through, lasted about 15 minutes and left everything looking like it had been hit with...
Nope. The big box stores sell the 2'' insulated almost exclusively, while your local sweep or stove shop sells the 1'' - that was the case for the last 4 installs I was involved in. A three foot length of 2'' at HD/Lowes/HomeHardware runs about $100 and the 1'' is about $190 for a four foot length.
Neighbour this summer was given about a cord of maple that had been cut in to 16 inch lengths but not split. It was cut, stacked and stored in an open shed for about 10 years. The rounds ranged in size from 8 to 14 inches . I was curious to see if it in fact was dry after all this time in...
Small pilgrimage today to Wolfville, Nova Scotia and The Church Brewing Co - one more kick at the "can" before I return to the west coast. House taps are German and Belgian, but no "bels" or "pels" on the list, sorry @Ashful. Favorite of course was the white IPA - like a glass of fruit juice.
