Re: Battery operated pruning tool

I have a Ryobi 18v cordless reciprocating saw (like a sawzall) and it does reasonably well with smaller limbs and such. Can't speak for how heavy duty it is as I usually just use it for pruning small limbs and very few at a time.
As I have [more]

Good deal

Like some I have hung onto 2017 until now.

I just purchased 2019 Deluxe off eBay for $12.95 shipped. It is a 14 month license and installed & activated with no problems.
An added benefit (to me anyway) is a coupon to add 5gb to my [more]

Re: Not Excited

I use www.netvibes.com Basic (Free).
It allows you to create multiple pages/tabs of links. Very easy to set up and use.

Re: online storage

Any backup is only as good as its ability to recover your data. All other criteria comes in 2nd.

Kind of like location, location & location when evaluating real estate.

Re: Shingles shot

I have been administered both, main and booster. All the local pharmacies have had problems getting the vaccine and there is a waiting list.
Unlike a flu shot, I did not experience any difficulties except for a slightly sore arm for a day or so - [more]

Re: Talking about VPNs...

Not sure if it is common with all VPN's but NordVPN really throttles my download speed. Without it I clock close to 400 mbs, with it on closer to 30 mbs. I am on Cox Ultimate.

No other problems though, easy to use. Can also be set to [more]

Re: iPad Purchase

I'm sure some will disagree but I see iPads as simply an information source as opposed to a more portable laptop.
I use mine primarily to read the news, check the weather and occasionally to browse the web. I also use it as a replacement for [more]

Re: Best password manager?

Re: Changing Spark plugs

Some high schools have auto repair programs. Some will let adults take a course on auto repair. Then you can do the job yourself with the advice of an expert staff.

I have the tools and the skills to do the job, it is more whether I [more]

Re: Changing Spark plugs

Point taken.
I will certainly get the plugs changed though I expect to shop around. Still not too keen on doing it myself but I might re-think that.

Thanks,

Re: Changing Spark plugs

So the absolute worst case scenario that could potentially happen if you did not do this maintenance is one or more plugs could fail and cause a misfire resulting in raw fuel going through the engine and to the cherry red catalytic converter where [more]

Re: Changing Spark plugs

Not really a special tool issue, the main issue is that the intake manifold and other 'stuff' has to be removed to get to the rear set of plugs.

Also wasn't clear in my question that I am not looking to do it now instead of [more]

Changing Spark plugs

I have a 2010 Toyota Venza with the V6 engine. The maintenance schedule calls for the spark plugs to be replaced at 120,000 miles and I currently have 103,000.

My question is whether they should be replaced as I am not experiencing any [more]

Re: New TV Set Top Box

We have a couple of these around the house and they are to 'go to' source for accurate time when the power has gone out, for whatever reason.
