re: Zillow Website Property Estimates - TigerFanatic1
Zillow is very inconsistent in my opinion. While they were in the ballpark of some houses we were looking at, they were nearly $50k low on the house we sold for $170k 3 years ago. ...

re: 7 year old electrocuted in Winnsboro - TigerFanatic1
I read one article that stated the child became tangled in a 120 volt fence. The wording leads me to assume that this was a rigged fence and not your typical electrical fence for livestock. An electrical fence for livestock would be plugged into 120V, but would produce at least 2,000V at low amperag...

re: Houston OT'ers: commute question.... - TigerFanatic1
Commute isn't bad if your hours are flexible. I did it a few years by leaving for work around 5:30-5:45 and leaving work before 4. Toll road prices increase during rush hour, you can save a lot by getting off of it prior to the price hikes or carpool so it's free. ...

re: Looking for a DIYer router and bit set - TigerFanatic1
[quote]here is what i have always been told. Buy one of those cheap bit sets with 10- or 20 in there. and once you wear one of the bits out then you buy a quality single bit..... after a few years you will realize you have only used 3 or 4 bits. And you have have those quality bits you use. and...

re: Looking for a DIYer router and bit set - TigerFanatic1
Point noted. I'm only looking at the higher amp/hp ones that are variable speed. It's one of those things that I don't plan on doing much, but would rather go ahead and pay a little extra for something that could do a little more. Thanks for the recommendation on bit brand. ...

re: Looking for a DIYer router and bit set - TigerFanatic1
Thanks for the input. I really like the palm type tools, but I figured I would do more messing up than anything. I'm really leaning toward the lightest 10+ router with handles. Any bits to stay away from? I see a lot of 50+ piece kits, but in the past I've found that big kits often contain a lot...

Looking for a DIYer router and bit set - TigerFanatic1
I'm looking to get a good router and bit set to make a few things around the house. I don't plan on doing any large scale projects but would like to build some drawers and a couple small kitchen cabinet doors. I think I may go with [link=(http://www.sears.com/craftsman-12-amp-2-hp-fixed-plunge-bas...

Advice on licensing/certifications for remodeling rent homes? - TigerFanatic1
We are thinking of acquiring a few properties to rent and/or flip. I went on the Louisiana Licensing website but am not 100% certain of what I would need to obtain to do my own work. I am thinking I would need to apply for a Home Improvement Registration if I were to complete more than $7,500 of im...

re: Natural Gas Crawfish Burner - TigerFanatic1
I use propane only because natural gas isn't available at my home. Although natural gas' BTUs are a lot less than propane, I'd use natural gas because of the cost and not having to refill. ...

re: First Time Buyer of a Tractor - TigerFanatic1
I would look for the best deal on a 40-50ish HP 4x4 with a front end loader in something like a Kubota or Deere, from a local dealer. As far as implements, a box blade and bush hog are must haves; a disc is also nice to have. If you are looking at cattle, a 3 point spear is a must for moving round ...
