Re: Things I Hate (2)


I tried to do that many years ago. Except all the force traveled from my elbow to my shoulder and screwed it up pretty good. Still hurts to this day.

Took everything out of the bathroom. Scored my lines with oscillating tool with a metal blade which didnít cut a thing. Then used a grinder with a vacuum to cut the lathe. Sucked. Was worried about sparks in vacuum and attic. Must be why the original vent fan was put in the sidewall below the towel bar.

Re: Things I Hate (2)


What has NO aroma while brewing, tastes like a burnt wood match, and is on its way to the garden for soil amending?

Meijer brand coffee.

Lesson learned.

As far as I can tell there was a lathe in the ceiling which made it difficult to install a fan. Why are you being so obstinate?
