I second republic. One of the owners is a friend of mine. They make quality stuff. They restored a pair of lizard skins for me, and they looked brand new. Their prices range depending on what you want obviously. ...

Too late to spread Bermuda? - ManOnDaRun on 9/23/19 at 3:18 pm
I am currently building a house and we are near completion. We have a few large areas that have been releveled, and it’s just dirt. I was thinking of trying to spread Bermuda instead of buying a ton of pallets of st. Aug, and seeing how it takes. I live in south Houston. It is shaded, but still gets...

Onkyo rz830 vs pioneer vsxlx503 - ManOnDaRun on 2/16/19 at 7:17 pm
Anyone have experience with either of these receivers? Newegg has these for $650 (pioneer) and $700 (onkyo). Of course they are actually more up front, but both come with gift cards, which I would use for other networking components. I’m looking for a 9.2 receiver with three zones and these seem to ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

TigerstuckinMS - do you know of a good place to get the conduit? I am seeing about $60-$70 for 100 feet or so, which seems expensive. I was thinking that I may just buy PVC as it's pretty cheap, but am open to any ideas. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (3)

Fantastic tips, VABuckeye. Appreciate all the help. This appears to be a little more difficult than I was initially intending, but hopefully will save me quite a few bucks....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: New construction - run coax? - ManOnDaRun on 2/12/19 at 8:47 am
Ah. Thank you for the help. That definitely clears a few things up. I think I would only need to have about 7 of those. 2 TVs in the den, 2 outside, 2 in the game room, and one in the master. Any baluns you recommend? So much to think about it. I literally was just trying to save a few bucks ove...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: New construction - run coax? - ManOnDaRun on 2/12/19 at 8:23 am
TigerWise, now you've gone and thrown me for a loop. I thought when he mentioned he was running three drops that he meant three cat 6 drops. Are you saying that one of those three would be HDMI, or are you saying that I can run HDMI through Cat 6? In other words, I wouldn't need to run a HDMI, as I ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

[quote] three CAT6 and one RG6 to each 4K TV[/quote] Why three? For the main TV watching areas I was doing 4 each. 1 for TV, 1 for XBox, 1 for DVD player (not completely necessary), and then 1 extra for another system. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: New construction - run coax? - ManOnDaRun on 2/11/19 at 4:37 pm
Also, any good places to look for smurf tub? Seems pretty expensive when compared to the actual cables when I look it up. Home Depot has it for $70 for 100 feet. I'm ordering 2000 feet of cable (and yes I realize that I can put multiple in one line), but, damn that gets expensive. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: New construction - run coax? - ManOnDaRun on 2/11/19 at 4:33 pm
Thanks for all the replies. Am planning to run 2 Cat 6 to every bedroom, and 4 to the living & game rooms. Will also run coax as well. Didn't think I needed it, but I think all of the affirmatives have let me know that I should go ahead and do it. Also, looking at smurf tube or pvc. Likely 3/4 - 1 i...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: New construction - run coax? - ManOnDaRun on 2/9/19 at 1:08 pm
Thanks. Guess it doesn’t hurt to just run it now. Any recommendations on wireless access points or which cat 6 to get? Not familiar with the access points since I’ve gone Orbi already and I found 1000 feet of shielded cat 6 on new egg for like $100. I assume that would be sufficient?...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: New construction - run coax? - ManOnDaRun on 2/9/19 at 12:52 pm
Thanks. I know its cheap and probably better to do it now than regret later, but is there something I’m missing that I may need it for down the road? I just can’t think of any reason I’d actually need it. Like phone connections. I know I’ll never need those, but coax I’m a little unsure of. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: New construction - run coax? - ManOnDaRun on 2/9/19 at 12:44 pm
Right now I have Comcast with wireless boxes. I think nowadays the wireless boxes are a decent choice, however haven’t done wired boxes for ease of transferring boxes around without running cables. Do the wired boxes require coax? I figured they would just need cat 6, but I could be wrong. Also,...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (3)
New construction - run coax? - ManOnDaRun on 2/9/19 at 12:18 pm
Planning to do the pre-wire myself on new construction. Currently planning all the routing. Am doing two cat 6 to every bedroom and kitchen. Four cat 6 to living room and game room. But my question is, is there any reason at all to run coax to any of the rooms? I understand I need coax coming into t...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (12)
re: Zero turn mower buying advice - ManOnDaRun on 5/16/17 at 11:10 am
Agreed. The Ferris looks like a great machine. My brother in law has one, and wishes he had gone one size up, which is the 2100. I don't know that I need these crazy expensive machines when i'm only going to be cutting 100 hours of so a year....

Zero turn mower buying advice - ManOnDaRun on 5/16/17 at 1:57 am
I just bought a five acre property in a suburb of Houston and I need a mower. No hills, but a ton of trees. About 2.5 acres is movable presently with the other 2.5 being woods. The local dealer sells scag, kubota, and ferris. From all the research I've done, I'm having a tough time deciding. I'm...
