  1. Frosty, You are not the only one to add borax to the clothes washer. SLAG.
  2. SLAG, here, A similar wrongful assumption happened in the case of old clothing. This was made by folks viewing the surviving artifacts and museum conservators. They assumed that the generally small size of women's dresses, and other items, denoted that women of those eras were smaller. What really was going on was different Smaller clothing survived better and longer, because they were less likely to be hand me downs, (again and again). The more common sized garments were worn out, and never made it to museums. SLAG
  3. Marg and I, Have added her name to our list of prayers and intentions. May her remaining days be peaceful and painless. SLAG p.s. Sorry JHCC I noticed your post after I composed mine. the plagearism was inadvertent.
  4. Mr. George N. M., So when was the execution?!! (Just kidding), you have a kind heart and it shows. Regards, SLAG. Mr. Frosty, Should the SLAG help set up a go fund me account in order to re-hook up your old land line? Let me know good guy
  5. Das, I have seen a diagram of such a shear in Moxon's tool book, circa 1705'ish. And some of them illustrated are large indeed. (in other words, good tools last for years and years). SLAG.
  6. Mr. W. B., cutting brick with out a masonry saw, can be accomplished with a series of drilled holes, and plug and feathers. (i.e. wedges). there are other methods and someone, on this site, will follow up with one or more of them. SLAG.
  7. Mr. S., Any wire wheel should do. Except knotted wire wheels. They are too aggressive and can chew up the metal. Welcome to IFI. SLAG.
  8. Mr. B. Bones, I missed your sad tidings. It is always sad when a family member dies. Your beloved cat is, now, in a better place. Pussy cats do not live nearly long enough. Are there any plans to rescue another one? SLAG. and Marg.
  9. Marg and I, pray that her hospice stay be peaceful and in comfort. Sincerely, SLAG.
  10. Herr Frosty, und Herr, Powers, Passing strange my telephone book said the same. But I, the SLAG, thinks that it may, still, mean "variable frequency drive". Let the readers be the final judge'(s). SLAG.
  11. SLAG, Here. Note to IFI 'ers VFD does not mean voluntary fire department. It probably stands for "variable frequency drive. Please do not take my word for it check it out here, vfd def - Bing Mr. Bing is usually correct. Sincerity, SLAG.
  12. Mr. Griffin, I use diclofenac anti-inflammatory for osteoarthritis in my hands and fingers. It comes in a compounded cream. It relieves the pain and has stopped joint deformation. I also take the pharmaceutical in pill form. Osteoarthritis is a wear and tear thing. If you live long enough there is a good chance you may develop it. Both of them require a doctor's prescription. Rheumatoid arthritis is a whole different matter. It is an auto-immune disease, and is beyond the subject matter of this thread and forum. SLAG.
  13. Ritual 'killing' of objects during burial rites are found at archeological sites all over the middle east. it was practiced by numerous cultures, and religions, for over many thousands of years. Such artifacts are found all over the world, e.g. in Asia and central and south America . examples of that are metal objects that have been bent, or broken in half etc. Smashed pottery is especially common. SLAG.
  14. IDFCW, Great idea/concept. Thanks. SLAG.
