re: The difficulty of buying American - mohalk
You have to seek out and find craftsmen in your local area. They exist and can do great work for you, but everyone is so used to the click and buy mentality that you’re only going to get mass produced garbage that way. My personal experience fabricating marine parts is that shipping, packaging, dist...

All I need them to do is have a web browser which will have a drag and drop sorting app, and looking for the largest display available for a low cost. The ap...

re: Planter Box Vegetable Garden - mohalk
I made mine out of aluminum, which you may find crazy, but it cost about $200 in material and it will last for 50 years. [img]https://i.imgur.com/1SzqrES.jpg[/img] [img]https://i.imgur.com/5rNGTHv.jpg[/img]...

re: HVAC technicians, looking for some help with a zoned HVAC system - mohalk
I have a carrier zoned system and had one of the diverters in the duct work go bad at the control board. Get in your attic and you’ll see where the paddle valves are located. If you get your wife to change the thermostat you should be able to watch if they open or close correctly. One of mine wasn’t...

re: Custom Cooking Equipment - mohalk
Sounds like it could be something to sneak in a couple on some extra space on a CNC nest, or run a bunch at one time. I’ll make a prototype just to see, never know what catches on. I sell 100’s of door bins for Viking refrigerators and it’s down to about 5 minutes per part if I do a few dozen at...
