Sounds like I'll give that a try, can't hurt any, I watched the jambs flex and said maybe that's not a good idea and had to slam it shut

The meter on the outside of the home. They connected on the bottom of the meter. No it is not safe, responsible or OSHA compliment. I have seen insulation guys do it and crews using large compressors.
I don't recommend you do it unless you know what you are doing.

So they were stealing from the power company.

The guys I saw recently were on the client side of the meter.
Again I don't approve of this hook up without the proper knowledge.

Here is my '02 Ford E350 after a reorganization I gave it last fall. (I moved my primary vehicle from my pick-up to this van and I'll never go back!)

Seems that there are about five times more tools and supplies in it now than when these pics were taken!

Nice setup! I like the idea of hanging the brooms on the ceiling. Might have to do that...

Not quite magic, I used some of these hooks and I strap some bungies around the short part of the tee...

Yeah, it was me. I am going to upgrade the broom holder this Spring. The clips on the cheaper metal one are not staying in place.
