Re: WTK cost to cast an 18 X 18 concrete floor

OP, since the slab is for parking vehicles, I will recommend as a minimum a 4" thick slab, reinforced with 1/2" corrugated rebar lattice spaced 16" C-C. The mix should be readymix with a minimum compressive strength of 3000 psi. Anything more as recommended by other posters is great, ...

Re: Building a house in Trinidad

Hello Tuners. Can I get some feedback here. I currently have my 3/4 hp, Goulds water pump plugged into a 110VAC outlet. I also have a tanked water heater plugged into a separate 220VAC outlet. Both of these outlets are operated via its dedicated indoor switch. So every night, I would take off the pu...

Re: WTK cost to cast an 18 X 18 concrete floor

The minimum thickness for a slab should be 4". A vehicle bearing by slab such as a garage floor or driveway should be further reinforced with steel rebar. The upfront cost for a proper slab may be slightly greater than what you may have budgeted in terms of proper thickness, concrete quality et...

Ah, I follow what you are saying. I've never purchased from their website or using the all in one price. I was explaining specifically for when you buy online and ship to your skybox.

But I think you are spot on tho.

Actually no. OPT is always paid. When OPT was introduced, a short time after, Aeropost changed the skybox address for all customers.

Re: Building a house in Trinidad

Make your own bracket using some 36" nylon cable ties (zip ties). You'll have to join about two together to get the circumference, but it should work just as effectively.

Re: :: The official TOOLS thread ::

Orange peel needs to be cut with a heavy cut compound. 3M has a good heavy cut compound, but then you also need to right pad such as a microfiber pad. The consumer grade compound is not aggressive enough, and with good reason.

Meguiars has a good heavy cut compound. Check the 110 compound.

Re: How to dispose of metal paint pans

The bulk garbage truck would usually collect that. That's the dump truck that passes about once a week (at least in CBC).

They usually pass early. If you give them some change, they should take it.

Best thing is heat and water. I redid my tint in 2019. The installer had a steamer, like the one used for clothes, and used that to remove all tint. Then it was heated to soften the glue which was gently removed. The defoggers remained good. If you have a steamer with the wide attachment, that'd wor...
