No Fun Tuesday


Simple demo and rebuild with some minor changes is turning into a nightmare.
100 year old lime mortar and super hard granite is not cooperating.

Re: No Fun Tuesday


CJ, I reviewed the first picture pretty thoroughly...and, there is not one part of that job nor one tool in the picture that I would say is not totally labor intensive, back breaking work.

I hope you own stock in the makers of Advil.
