re: Deciding on EGO blower - Mr Fusion
At the same price, I'd go with the one with more CFM and speed. But it probably will drain the battery faster. Depending on the size of your property, and whether you have another Ego tool with a battery, you may want to plan for buying a second battery. Especially if you plan on using it to blow le...

re: Replacing 20x20 wooden deck with concrete slab? - Mr Fusion
Summer 2020, in DFW, I had ~400 sf concrete patio poured for $2,500. 4" thick, #3 rebar on 18" centers, 8" footing around the outside edge. I removed an old wooden deck myself, and did the rough grading by hand. Hopefully that gives you a good ballpark. I imagine they'd have charged an additional...

re: String Trimmer/Edger recommendation. - Brand? Battery/Gas? Stand Alone or Combination? - Mr Fusion
[quote]ego and echo.[/quote] I replaced a 20+ year old Echo weed eater with an Ego. I love the power, ease of use, and reliability of the Ego. But, the head is at a flatter angle and spins the opposite direction of the Echo, and it took me almost a full season to get used to that. The Echo is ...

re: GFI outlet reset question - Mr Fusion
That same mistake cost me $80 about a month ago. I called an electrician because replacing a fixture like-for-like is the extent of electrical work I feel comfortable doing. It took him just a few minutes to figure out what was going on. I felt like a fool at the time, but totally worth it for the s...

re: Leaky Bath Faucet - Attempt to Repair or Call a Plumber? - Mr Fusion
If you can't get the bonnet nut off by twisting with average force, don't try to use your muscle to untighten it. Either call a plumber, or get a large set of slip joints to bend it or crack it free, then replace the trim kit. Trust me. Otherwise you can break the copper supply lines and end up w...

re: Admit Your Dumbest Homeowner Repair Mistakes - Mr Fusion
[quote]Well with that patch job, make sure you don’t use 5/8” to patch it if it’s only 1/2”. That’s my dumbest mistake. And the dumbest part was how long it took me to realize that I was never going to get it floated and sanded flat.[/quote] For some reason, there is one wall in my house that has 5...
