I have 13... [emoji23][emoji23][emoji23][emoji23][emoji23]

I'll probably sell a few at our garage sale this weekend and give a few away to friends.

I was really after all the quick clamps. The glue guns were a bonus.

That's kind of what I thought but thought maybe you just really liked hot gluing things! I grabbed one around Christmas since it was a hard deal to pass up.

Don't get me wrong, I do love hot glue! Quick fixes, it's fantastic. I also put large amounts on the bottom of chairs, tables and stools and it keeps from scratching floors.

I've been waiting for Monday all weekend. I have a significant delivery scheduled tomorrow to finish my Tough Wall.

Excellent, at least you know when your stuff is coming, I think my certain red family addition was ordered before they even had in stock, so i don't know when to expect it! haha

My weekend started off with a lot of crap. Literally.

 

The toilet on the first floor of my house was erupting like Mount Vesuvius every time we drained water upstairs - bath, dishes, toilet, didn't matter.  So, I figured I there was a clog somewhere between the house and the septic.

Out came the trusty Ridgid snake.  Well, 20m later, nothing was happening and it broke - wouldn't retract into the housing anymore.  Oh well - sounds like an excuse to get that Ryobi 18v snake I've been eyeballing for a while. Perfect!

I get home from the Depot, eager to try out my new toy.  Well, the Ryobi has a 25' auger cable.  It went all the way in and did nothing at all.  So, after a few more tries, I remembered there was a beast drain auger at the depot on clearance.  I got up early and, after a quick drive down the road, this beauty came home with me for the bargain price of $250 - half off!

Meet my new Ridgid K-400.  75' of 3/8", solid core goodness ready to tackle anything that I could throw at it.  Sure enough, about four hours later, this beast finally broke through what was probably 15' of clogged gunk and grease (gotta have a chat with the nanny on what is ok and what is NOT ok to flush) and the drains started working again.  Now I just have to deal with the HomeOwners insurance to get them to rebuild my bathroom, but that's another story.

 

Anyway, when all was said and done, not only can we flush, I've got not one but TWO new drain augers for any future clogs that show their ugly faces!

They work pretty well, I've found. The key is making sure that it's well clamped down so that it doesn't drift mid-cut.

My dad has that K-400 snake and it works great. He bought it at an auction a couple years ago brand new in the box for $150! They are very nice to have.
