Quote from: Don_P on February 23, 2016, 10:37:33 PMTough weather to haul drywall in. I was doing porch ceiling framing today and stepped out and did a little soffit blocking on the overhang between rains, but we've been in and out of it. I need gravel but if I call now I'll need several truckloads just to get him in.What did it turn out to be at the motor shop? Is this the old bullet shaped motor, if so it can work circles around a modern motor of the same rating. There is one in the old barn where I'm working that is down for now. The "starting necklace" is out of it. If it sounds similar and you have good luck, I want the name of the shop

Quote from: pocono_couple on September 28, 2016, 02:53:01 PMhi john, hope you guys have had a wonderful summer.. i found this post about the metal reinforced tape rather interesting.. i tried the same thing on the angled portion between the walls and the ceiling on the second floor of our house in the poconos.. same result as yours.. it was rather disappointing.. one of the jobs on my to-do list when we return to PA next month will be to rip that all out and replace it... jt
