    I've seen the shark bite things for PVC, and even have some, just waiting to use them to fix the next leak. I haven't seen the copper versions. Why in the world can't I invent simple stuff like...

    This might get me expelled, or banned, but I started using the copper-bond epoxy :) I've almost set too many fires working in tight places :)

    Ok, thanks. I could tell something wasn't right.

    Craigslist tends to be about as realistic as French wedding vows at times.

    You're right. The vise is pretty much the same as the chop saw. It's not elegant, but if you square it up coming out of the box, and set the little adjustable angle indicator so that it points at...

    Yeah, I saw that, but it didn't look like there was a lot done on it. I'm an "old car" guy is the interest. I have a '31 Ford I mess with. More than I should. But that bus looked pretty cool.

    Like others have said, a small compressor on the cart is a nice touch. I have a compressor about that size. I might see if it can keep up with the plasma cutter.

    That's some nice "temporary" work. I've seen a lot of "long term" fences that weren't put together half that well.

    I was hoping he was still around. I'm a proud FaceBook non-participant. Odd, I guess, in that I'm an IT manager. But FaceBook doesn;t solve any problems I have :)

    That's Rust-Oleum's Hammered version of paint. It's called bronze, but looks a lot more silver than bronze to me.

    It's a pretty nice finish.

    Another big advantage is that when you make the cut, the next step is NOT to have to get a grinder and try to clean the cut without losing too much more steel.

    And the cut isn't hot.

    No, I cheated.

    I put a box under the tie plate to hold it at the height I wanted and shimmed it a little to get the tie plate sitting on it level.

    Railroad spike coat rack

    I had a lot of stuff laying around, so I put it together. It ended up looking like this. The base is a tie plate.
