    I'd say more often than not, you need to charge it. Now if it's a good customer you do a fair bit of work for, I could see telling them you'll get em next time and heading out with no charge.

    Every building that I work on drains the condensate onto the roof. Most of the time it's no big deal, there's a few places that could use either a little better drainage on the roof, or pipe the...

    All winter was a hussle, we had 2 mechanics, and it was all we could do to stay afloat, and somewhat caught up. I'd say I averaged 45-50 hours all winter with a few being more than that. Our other...

    I've had the usual bumps and bruises, cuts and getting rid of some extra blood from time to time.

    Worst was breaking my back. No cool story either, just came in off a white rubber roof, it was...

    Around my area it doesn't seem like RSES matters much, but thankfully we do have a good and fairly active chapter. I did take several class's, but sadly the last few years I haven't been able to...

    My coldest was -42 with a stiff breeze (probably 10-15 mph). That sucked bad, I wasn't outside too long in it, but when I was, it was on a roof. It was miserable for sure. Around here below 0...

    I don't care a whole lot about them watching me, I don't do much to deserve any attention, but I do kind of dislike the big brother aspect of it. I've had it in my van for about a year, it has sort...

    It's all about drama and ratings.

    Similar questions I have about the Turtle Man. That man is nuts, but there's no way to "act" out grabbing critters that want to eat your fingers. But the part I...

    I have that one, and also have KG Free, and 3D knots.

    I have a basement, and it's useless. Of course it's poorly finished, poorly heated, and full of junk.

    I do think a basement would add more value to the place, even if it's unfinished. If you're...

    I'm back! Not that ya'll need a visual picture of this, but I have them on my phone, so I'll share.

    One tip I did find, the ladder likes to wobble (rattle) from side to side (rotate along the axis of the holding points). I ended up sliding the back holder far enough back that the ladder's legs are...

    These are crappy pictures from many-a-years ago. But it'll give you a basic idea.

    I'm guessing this is for one of them ladder racks where the ladder slides in against the ceiling?

    Don't forget about a smaller George Foreman grill either. I threw one in my truck back when I did installs and used it all the time. The other guys would get pretty jealous when I was making...

    Those tests are incredibly hard to study for since they cover so much material.

    I think the best approach is to brush up on a few of the basics like ohms law, and some of the simple math...
