All You Need Is a Finger

All You Need Is a Finger

Adam helps a caller who had a few too many beers before attempting some important housework. He also helps solve the mystery of a 103-year-old house.


Show Summary

Adam talks to a caller who has a towel rack stuck with adhesive, and a heating lamp not helping the situation. Adam also shares his thoughts on chicks that take too long to shower, and the etiquette of farting at work. One caller has very drunkenly removed his front door, and Adam has another caller knocking on the walls to find the studs.

In the second half of the show, Adam gives advice to someone trying to remove Clear-Coat from his driveway and helps him shop for a pressure washer. He also helps determine whether or not a gas pipe is running through a 103-year-old house. At the end of the show, Adam gives important safety advice about the dangers of vertical blinds.

    Get it on! Thanks for another great show! I’m proud to say I’ve been building for over 20 years and have never owned or used a glue gun. They’re great for a quick fix but I want my shit to never come down.

    Love the show, first thing on my shop stereo every Saturday. The home improvement calls are great but they are sometimes a little elementary… How about some other segments like tool reviews, interviews with contractors or cabinet makers, tutorials on common construction methods. Make the show longer, keep it up Ace, get it on!

    Chicken wire is trash, like corrugated iron or plywood. Why do you use in your backdrop?

    To the guy trying to remove epoxy from the driveway. You’re basically only going to have two solvents that might dissolve the epoxy; it is designed to resist almost all chemicals so you have to break out the big guns to dissolve it. Use a solvent called MEK (methyl ethyl ketone) or one called Xylene. If you can’t find MEK at the home store, use PVC pipe cleaner which has MEK as the primary ingredient. Xylene you might need to get at a specialty paint store. Both of these are really nasty so you’re gonna want to glove up, glasses and an organic vapor respirator if you can get one (3M brand is about $30) — at the very least a dust mask to protect your mouth and nose from getting splashed.

    If neither of those work, get a diamond wheel for your angle grinder and carefully abraid the epoxy back down to the bare concrete.

    AceMan, so much Ass You Kicketh!! Man alive, you are a profound gift to saving what’s left of mankind. I totally dig all the ACE broadcast network has to offer, especially Ace on the House. I own a 250 year old wine house over on the Mosel River in Germany. It’s a nice house, but I’m going through the rigors of redecorating and updating a few things. I’m on the demo end of a hammer and dumpster, and the working end of a putty knife and trowel. We are halfway through the living room and then on to the hallway, two bathrooms and a kitchen. Lots of small headaches, but nothing substantial. You think big box hardware stores are short on service, but think again my friend, at least the bag/box/can has a good chance of being written in English. I speak and read a little bit of German, but the beer and the wine helps with all the above. Keep up the great work, you truly are a Reverend for the Church of Reformed and Undiscovered Manhood. You keep me thoroughly entertained and informed through my countless hours of migrant labor. Get over here and help me drink some wine when you get a chance, Schmidty.

    Last show someone called about finding a gas line when they removed a ceiling fan. I am an electrician and recently came across the same thing. I did a little research and found that in the early times electricity was not always available so they made duel powered lights. They had a burner on one shade and a light bulb on the other.Here is a link to the website that you can purchase these fixtures.

    Why is Katie called “Blaster-Girl”?

      I think she started out on DOT with the sound effect of a Star Wars blaster sound. Something like that.

    How ‘bout a show idea/subject for Ace On The House?

    I’m building a steam shower in a new bathroom and was hoping for some comment.

    In short, I’ve converted a bedroom into a bathroom and build a stall shower that’s sealed for use with a steam generator.

    Construction details:

    Stall Shower size 4’ x 5’

    2×4 constructions w/ 30” glass door and tilted ceiling (2”per foot).

    Walls are insulated w/ R-13

    Wall build up is: Green Board followed by Peel-n-Stick (Storm Gard) roofing material for waterproofing (PLEASE COMENT)

    on ALL sides and ceiling followed by mud and then tile. This room is basically a concrete shell with a waterproof burier.

    (Please comment on this construction)

    Steam generator is a Thermasol PRO-240

    Love the show and network; not a bad show in the bunch.

    Hope to hear this soon…I’ve built it; just want some peace of mind.


    P.S. Love the SCCA/race car stuff. I raced SCCA and IMSA in the 80’s with the guys you speak with often.

    This is a little late but last week’s “Reverend Adam” bit was great. I think that should become an Adam staple were Adam talks/rants about a nonreligious subject like a reverend and the guest or Alison/Bald Bryan backs him up. Adam preaching the gospel of Adam. Not anti-religious but pro-practical. Preaching about building or cars or any one of Adams classic observations but in a new format with funny improving. Basicilly, it would be like if Adam was preaching his belief system and knowledge in the Church of Ace but instead of being a Bible thumper, he is a Building Code thumper or “In Fifty Years We’ll All Be Chicks” thumper.

    Ace missed one. The guy with the t.v. clearly bolted the t.v. into the fire blocking, not the stud, which is why he could not find it below. The Aceman has to remember that Dominicans from NY don’t nessarritly know how to use a stud finder correctly. He just found wood and put in the bolts.

    I do consider all the concepts you’ve offered in your post. They are really convincing and will certainly work. Still, the posts are too quick for starters. May you please prolong them a little from subsequent time? Thank you for the post.

    I seriously can’t see the necessity for all companies to become involved in social media…really, just who is going to need to check out what their Accountant does every hour?
