Get a tube of Seal-all. It will work on a leaking gas tank. I've used for over 50 years ever since I found a tube in my late grandpa's workshop.

Post: RE: Battery-powered string trimmer...you have one?

I've had a Black & Decker 18v for about 10 years now and am happy with it. Just make sure you get at least 2 batteries if your yard is of any size bigger than a postage stamp.

Post: RE: Insulation for shop: cellulose or foam?

Closed cell foam is the best insulator but isn't cheap. Moisture reduces the R value of most insulations but not closed cell foam.

I've always just plugged a radio (turned up loud) to find and mark the breakers when I move into a new place. It saves a lot of time when you need to turn off a circuit.
