  7. minit mart use to be a little store also the liquor store sells bait
  8. Can anyone tell me the name of the gas station down by boy scout landing that sells minnows?
  9. The bottom stop is there, but not strictly needed. The usual 1/2" standard conduit clamps grip the post tightly with drywall screws into the wood. The swivel feature is in the ball mount on the ceiling....after I ground off the little 'tooth' that's supposed to keep your fan from twirling. If anyone else needs parts for a similar, I've got a couple more fan mounts.
  10. Whoops, never mind. I see now on my computer that the end of the conduit has a wider piece. Didn't see that before.
  11. Nice Cheeser. I purchase my TV mounts from http://www.monoprice.com/category/tv-wall-mounts/fixed-tv-wall-mounts. Cheap and easy!
  12. tiny little castration bands work great for that!
  13. Thats pretty cool. Can you take the fishes balls then let the fish go?
  14. Earlier
  15. Cool idea Cheeser. Are you planning on putting some kind of end cap or butt piece on the low end of that conduit? Might not be a bad idea for the off chance that the bracket slides off of the conduit if those pipe brackets loosen up...
  16. Perfect for a garage. Nice yob.
  17. Bought a $90, 24 inch flat screen for my garage. After trying two "universal" overpricedTV mounts that wouldn't work, even with drastic machining... I realized that most of my wall space is used anyway, so why not make something to hang it from the ceiling? (where I really want it, and won't get in the way of other stuff.) A ball socket from an old ceiling fan, 2 feet of half-inch conduit, wood scraps,and some screws got me going in 30 minutes. Why pay more, for less? And why can't these TV mount people standardize the way this crap hooks to any TV? Both mounts not only were nowhere near the small bolt pattern on the back of an LG tv, AND would have covered all the input jacks & power cord??? Instead of sitting on a shelf 15 feet away, the TV is now 4 feet from my usual work station, and gives the look of BIG screen Rotates as needed with no problems. My TV weighs 6 pounds...but this type of rig should take a 40" set. Any ceiling fan weighs 30 pounds or more.
  18. what is your price range, ill keep an eye out as there are lots on the internet. you can also find new fl8s around 229 - 249. just checked craigslist, fl8 posted today 150 bucks no charger
  19. looking for a used marcum or vexilar.
  20. Thanks, Turbo!
  21. Happy Belated Birthday Rush !
  22. Thanks! I love to use that fan because it, along with the little Clam fan I have on my top hoop really helps circulate the heat. With the D cells, I only got about 3 days of light use out of it. The main problem is that I can never remember to buy those batteries when I go to town & I live too far from anything to just go & specifically buy them. I haven't gotten a chance to use the 6v yet because I did this mod the day before I left for CA. I'm almost sure the runtime will be longer, but even if it is the same, the rechargeability is a huge advantage. If anyone does the battery mod, you don't really even need to solder. You can just take a length of wire and put a male blade terminal on one end, and a female blade terminal at the other, effectively making an extension cord to reach the battery cubby. One for the + wire and one for the - wire, of course.
  23. Thanks! It was nice. Shovel made me dinner and then off to bed early to get up @ 2 to get on my flight to L.A. Now, I'm just kicking back in Cali. Yay!
  24. What a great idea. Oddly enough, I think I have only used my fan a couple times. How many hours can you get on a set of good batteries?
