Trapped again ... when will you learn Eddie?

I got some ceramic blades for my new dog clippers. Those blades cost more than the crap clipper set I started with cost in total.

And hopefully will last for years. There's still the small problem that the Only Assistant is not the most cooperative when it comes to haircuts.

Here's why I decided I wanted some better haircut tools.

Hey Don - I am not surprised he isn't co-operative - I wouldn't be either. Talk about the demon barbour - not a patch on you[Image: tongue.gif]. I think your assistant is extremely brave - and patient.

RE: What did you get today?
Been putting the Armor squonk atty. to the test for a few hours now. First off - I am on my second wicking - it needs a long wick spread across the deck. I built a coil and fitted it to the atty. really easy to build on, the coil read 1.54ohms and I set the power at 10.3W - it is a nice flavour atty. also it is definitely a MTL RDA - it is vaping well with no leaks and I now have the power down to 10W. A few more adjusments to the wicking over the next couple of days and it will be up there with the NarDa and the Hadaly. Whether it will match up to the Origen Little only time will tell.

Would be worth tracking down ethanol free fuel, or at least treating it. All my new small engines are only going to see ethanol free fuel from now on. 
I use trufuel in my weed wacker and chainsaw, for what I use them the cost of $4-5 a quart is fine by me.
I found a place about a half hour away that sells ethanol free 93 octane (maybe higher, cant remember) for $4 something a gallon. Need to get that for my snow blower. this spring I just let my snow blower run out of fuel, and put a cup or so of trufuel in it and let it run a couple mins to get it in.

This crap ethanol fuel is hell on small engines

I've been using StaBil for years in the gas tanks, so far have not had an issue with any fuel, long or short term. The way Ethanol separates over time, it is worth stabilizing it.

What mower did you get??
