My Makita grinder was exceptionally easy to repair -- $9 and 10 minutes for a stripped bevel gear. (I applaud companies that think about and support economical fixes.)Bearings are for my Mikita angle grinder that has started making 'bad bearing' noises. Next on the 'fix it' list.
UPDATE:The diverter valve on my wife's garden tub failed. While troubleshooting, I discovered that the hand spray head was also broken. We'll have to order a new head, but she says she has to have it tonight. I installed a temporary solution and told her the job was done -- she was not amused.
(I'll put the faucet back together until a new diverter valve arrives from Moen. I assume she'll have bought a new hand spray by that time!)
She’s 82 years old and still works as an RN four days a week which start at 8:00 and end somewhere between 6 & 8. She has not needed to work since she retired after 40 years at a cardiac place. I think she took a job at her retirement party with a private doctor. She can’t weigh but 85 or 90 pounds and works on her little yard when she comes home. Could not treat me any better and I don’t mind doing these jobs. The rolling ladder works well because it is 3 feet wide and a platform, the only problem is there’s not room for two people or room for another ladder without removing the awning.Nice lookin place Herm. Nice work. Ladders suck
