I haven't checked into that yet, but I'm sure for enough $$ anything is possible.

Sorry. Luckily I had overbuilt as usual and had a double stud (one was a cripple) on both sides. The back side was still unfinished so I cut off the cripple and just secured the cross piece to the remaining stud instead of sitting on the cripple.

Yeah, I was thinking along the line of removing the 2X4 facing the inside of the opening and replacing it with a 1X4 and maybe toe nailing in another 2X4. Like this crude drawing....

The red one would be the 2x4 replaced with the 1x4 and the green would would be the new 2x4. The blue one would be the existing stud.

Sorry, I'm at work an stuck with PAINT and can't get this uploaded to my photobucket account.

I don't think cripples are required for non load bearing walls so you can just take it out and secure the cross piece by toenailing to the full stud.

Gotta love your reciprocal saw.

Yeah, but I figured the double is likely to be pretty heavy and he jsut might want a little extra beef to attach it to.

Do the love the sawzall!

I installed a 48" door and then cut down the non hinged sides with a circular saw, and then installed a T astrigal after the fact. $14 at Tart and no framming to worry about. I cut even amounts off of both doors.

Stagflation?? No effect!!

*THAT'S* what I was thinking of doing. Lowe's told me that they didn't have T-Astrigals for sale separately. Where did you pick one up?

It seems to me that this would be the best solution.

Andy...please share your super source...what's a TART (keep it clean, gentlemen)?

...pretty please?

CJ


EDIT: I googled it and I'll head over there next week! Thank you for the pointer, Andy!

ROFL.

Tart Lumber... rt 28 and Waxpool Rd.

They have 2 sizes. 1 3/8 (what you want) and 1 3/4, mongo doors. I'm 99.44% sure that it was $14.xx out the door. They shut down at 5, so you may have to leave early or go at lunch. Reston right????? go thru Herndon, Sterling and boom your there. or Toll to 28 - superfast!

Tart is across from Belfort furniture in Dulles. It's an old style lumber yard. Pay at the desk then get your stuff. I've bought furniture grade plywood there in the past.

Thanks Andy and Jeff. I know right where that place is. I have shopped at Belfort Furnature and made a note that I wanted to visit the lumber yard across the street. I'm going to head up there next week and see what I can pick up.

Thank you again for the pointer.

I'm going to stop up there during the week next week. I would like to see what you have going on, so maybe we can take this offline and set up something. I'm even willing to lend a hand if you need it.

Tart's is a great lumberyard. Got my mineral wool there as well as some fireblocking supplies that HD didn't carry.

WARNING!!!!! If you are planning on taking a 1/2 inch off a standard door, I think you would not want to get one that is PRE-DRILLED for the door latches.

Careful CJ, he might just lock you on a 30 foot logging chain and not let you out until you finish his build.

When I lived in Atlanta, we went rafting on the Chatuga river. There's a corner there called Deliverance Rock which is where they filmed that scene. The rafting guide said "right over here is the spot that marked the end of Ne Beatty's career". Apparantly the kid on the banjo was picked up at a local Waffle House, where he was an employee - true story.

On a stretch of the river that they filmed Deliverence, they redid the river for the Atlanta Olympics for the Kayaking. The commentators were talking about it during the games, saying these athletes wearing the spandex bike shorts should be real careful during their events.

Finished the tile on the ceiling this weekend. Still need to do the floor and the tiles along the bottom bottom row along the floor, but I made solid progress.

Must remember not to do tile work when it is really cold outside. Operating a wet saw in the sleet is not a great idea.

Just set up a 3 sided plastic sheet booth and you will be fine. The closer you can put it to the work, the faster you will make progress.

Garage works too.

I usually do mine in garage, I lay a plastic sheet on floor. Also my tile saw is a small DIY version so I sit it in a cat litter tray which catches a loy of the water.

Thanks for the info Mark and Jeff. Mine is a mid grade home saw. It really flings a lot of water around. The reservoir needs to be filled every 5 tiles or so.

I have, what I consider, is a pretty heavy duty wet tile saw that sprays water everywhere as well, but I just drape over a plastic sheet over the back half of the wet tile saw (duct tape it down in some spots) which will catch the water and it basically would drop back into the pan, but some would drip onto the floor, which I have a bunch of old towels down to keep it from spreading. As Big said, much easier to keep it next to your work to speed things up. You're almost done, but maybe worth looking into if/when you tile your bar floor, backsplash...

You might be actually using more water than you need. Most of those little submerged pumps have a way of adjusting the flow. You might throttle it back a bit.

It also sounds like the rubber shield at the back of blade housing that hangs down and returns a large percentage of the water to the tray might be missing.

I made the mistake of trying to cut slate tile in my basement with a dry diamond blade saw.

It cut fine... but oh boy the dust that it threw up. I didn't even make it through the first tile before I took the job outside.

That reminded me of a time at my old work where they were cutting / laying tile right under a smoke detector and didn't cover it. The dust flew into the sensor, setting the alarm off. It took us over half hour blowing compressed air into it before it turned off.

The things you learn from other people's mistakes...

I think it is part of a rite of passion or something to get covered in dirty water from cutting your tile.

Kind of like electrocuting yourself at least once doing electrical...or dropping sheetrock on your foot...or hitting your thumb with a hammer.
