Well as we are having problems with getting replacement items from the first DME outfit wife has been talking to the people at the sleep center and they are going to be giving her a couple names of other DME outfits that they would recommend.

I have seen that mask or others very similar recommended other places so I will see if they can let m e try one of those in place of the thing I now have:

I gave up just deleting them - no-one notices if a post just goes completely.
That's why we've moved to 'pinking' them out. At least then the arrogant sods who just put a For Sale advert as their first post without reading that forum's guidelines at least can see that *something* wasn't appreciated.

Defeated by a small engine.

I bought a gas powered string trimmer that I found on craigslist. It almost started for the seller when I bought it. No big deal, I thought, a little tuneup will do it. When I got it home I pumped the primer a few times and pulled the starter rope a few times. No start, no big deal, it wasn't a surprise. I pulled it once more and the starter wouldn't retract. So I had to take the thing apart, try to see what went wrong, and put it back together. A couple of tries later which resulted in the starter stuck again, I decided to replace the starter spring, and the spark plug for good measure. Still no start, but in the three of four tries I got before the starter broke I determined that there was no spark. Now I just got a new coil today. With the new coil in I got three or four good pulls, and the damn starter stuck again.

I can't figure out what's wrong. The starter rewinds all right before I put the case back together. It rewinds when I take the spark plug out so that it pulls easier. But it gets stuck when I actually try to start the engine. Apparently somethings wrong with the recoil mechanism but I haven't been able to find it.

Now my wife's on my case: "What did you buy that thing for anyway?"

I guess I'll leave it for next summer's project.

My wife had surgery back on March 13. She had scheduled sick time at work to be completely off the following week (March 16-20), then was going to work from home for another 3-5 weeks.

Then COVID-19 hit. She was called at home to do something on the day of her surgery. She worked every single day until the Saturday after Easter (April 18). Since then she's been able to take off at least one day on the weekend, sometimes two. Her boss knew that she wasn't going to be able to sit at a desk working for at least a week, yet called her every day to do something that first week. Some days she had to put in 10-12 hours of work. It ended up extending the healing process by close to a month. She still has issues because of it.

The good thing about it is that she canceled her paid time off for the surgery, so she still has that available, and she's going to be working from home until everything is back to 100% open.

Not pissing me off - Just Real Annoying!!!
Sent a PM, to an Addicted MVer, on 07.01.2020, for additional details/photos in reference to a post in the For Sale section; the person is not a Newb (hence, reference to Addicted MVer).

Though, by happenstance, I did see this particular Addicted MVer, post in a general thread, a few days after I sent the PM.
The PM is still sitting in my Outbox. Popcorn emoticon

On reflection, I am not surprised. At all. In jimc vernacular, what a sod! Not pissing me off ... it is just annoying. People can be annoying. Wha? emoticon

Maybe this should be in the 'Cheering' thread - but the garage door refused to open this morning. A broken torsion spring was soon found to be the culprit. The quickest I could get hold of a matching pair was from Home Depot with delivery in a week's time. Crying or Very sad emoticon

What's cheering about this is that at least I have a 'project' to keep me occupied for half a day (with beers) at least! 8)

Also I managed to 'mirror dance' a couple of our scooters out of the rear door into our pantry and then through an outside door, down the side path and out to the front. Cool-Ass cover on the LX seat, Reflectix on the GTS. So at least we have some PTW transport available.

Springs usually fail at the end so if you are careful with propane torch you can wedge the last ring away and heat one spot and bend a new hook on the end.

Also hope you have the springs updated with a cable down the center so when a spring does fail it stays off scooters or car hood!

I start from scratch, doing this (learning to read and play music) is the consequence of being pissed off at myself. I said to myself: "what do you do after retiring? You live the day without goals, you eat, you sleep, the usual things ... Instead you have to react, do something but what?" And a friend says to me: "learn to play an instrument".

This one failed in the middle. Must have been at least 30 years old!

And those springs are completely different - these are torsion springs:

Yea that idea won't work then will it!

We had those torsion type springs on a couple big overhead doors at the place I worked.

One trick a guy who serviced that door showed me about adjusting them was simple. He took a can of spray paint and sprayed a thin line of paint down the length of the spring when first installed with zero tension on it.

He then crank on the adjusters on each end till they had some tension on them. Then to check to see if he had the same number of turns on each one he just counted the spirals of the paint on each one.

Makes more sense if you see it done but it does give a easy way to know both are wound the same number of turns. Probably even more handy if someone were to interrupt you while working. Simple look and you know which one needs more tension.

Just took another look at the picture you posted and I think I see the paint marks on those springs. Maybe they come that way now when you buy them?

I think those ones came with yellow paint down the length - the new ones just have yellow paint at the adjusting cone end. Good idea to lay a line of paint - I'll be counting turns, but if I got interrupted...

The color on the spring is to ID the weight rating of the spring. There, I have added all I know about the subject.

Young people and how absolutely stupid they can be when it comes to NOT spreading covid-19 . We have our numbers under control but cases are going up and the average age is going down. The numbers are going up because of large gatherings of 20-30 somethings and their lack of social distancing. It is just mind blowing how insensitive they can be when it comes to this. Do they not love their parents and grandparents? Do they think this is a joke?

The real irony is when it comes to going back to the office they are the ones pushing back the most. I'm not saying all of them are idiots but the amount that are is really disappointing.

Lock up everyone over 65 or in poor heath and let everyone else go at it. This will would be the best way and then monitor hospital capacity.
This is not going to get better till at least 60% of the population has or had it or a vaccine comes out.

Still buying in to herd immunity? That's 200 million infected people in your country.

That, I'm afraid, was your own doing.

And going on about it doesn't help.
Even if that's what's pissing him off today? Laughing emoticon


OK, I'll be quiet....

Okay, my mom's rototiller's grips have been falling apart prematurely. I decided to be helpful (okay, I've got skin in the game-she's told me it will be mine some day) and buy her new grips. Found some on eBay, sent them to her, and when I came to install them, they were clearly too small. I contacted the seller, who said they'd send the proper ones. So, get down to see her today, she has the package. On the outside is a little sticker telling someone to be sure they're 25 mm. Open it up, one of them is the proper size, the other is probably a quarter of an inch smaller... Wha? emoticon Well, ONE fits...

We'll get there eventually....

Sheesh. Two in a row.

Okay, looking forward to some maintenance, been ordering some stuff randomly but kinda forget what I have and what I might need.

So, dug through my box of oil filters, belts, washers, rollers and did a bit of inventory. I DON'T NEED ANYTHING! Crying or Very sad emoticon Crying or Very sad emoticon

Guess I can chill until the weather cools off.....

And a bit after that maybe start a thread about regulators.
