Let Sleeping Toggle Bolts Lie

Adam rants about building permits, and talks about a quick fix for patching vinyl. Later on, yet another caller has a broken towel rack.


Show Summary

At the top of the show, engineer Matt asks a question of his own regarding an outside deck that couldn’t get finished because of lack of permits. Adam warns him about a lifetime of weird, crappy neighbors. Later, he responds to an email about patching a small part of a vinyl surface, and talks about the different ways to install a shower.

Moving to the phones, the first caller has a question about some Marlite wall in his bathroom. Adam also talks to a caller about fixing a rot iron stairway railing, and gives him advice on patching drywall from a busted towel rack. A rare female caller comes on the line and talks to Adam about repairing her flagstone patio, and as the show wraps up, Adam shares his love of LED light bulbs and gives advice on air compressor safety.

    Anyone else notice how Adam finds a way to make the Peter North splooge sound in every episode? Whether it’s squirting construction adhesive on plywood or shooting Type S mortar into a cracked sidewalk, I’m always waiting to see what he’ll phbbbblllttt out each week.

      I have noticed that! And it’s kind of gross, but I attribute it to being a guy thing, fart comedy.

    Out here in Coachella valley, every time a roofer uses his hot mop kettle they have to get a permit, which lets the fire dept. know you are using. Then they show up for a surprise inspection to make sure one person is staying with the kettle.
