Show Summary

Adam opens the show talking with Ray about the recent climb of Ace on the House on the iTunes charts. The guys also respond to an emailer who writes in about asbestos shingle siding, and discuss the safest way to remove the tiles. Another emailer writes in about a wobbly table that has a number of possible fixes.

On the phones this week, the first caller needs advice for a part of their nursery, and the next asks about the best way to tile a window near the shower. Later they chat with someone with water leaking in the basement, and also a guy looking for some new tools to purchase. The last couple calls deal with flooring in the basement, and fixing a water spot from a previous leak.

    Will from Kansas, you don’t need to bother testing those asbestos shingles. That stuff (called “cementitious” asbestos tile) is always around 35% Chrysotile asbestos; that’s very bad stuff and a high number. Professionally, nobody can mess with that stuff; they have to remove it. As a home owner, tape a garbage bag to the wall, beneath the tile, use a spray bottle to keep it moist, as you drill, and use a masonary hole saw for boring through tile and such. Go slow, keep it very wet, were a disposable suit (that goes in the garbage bag), and wear a respirator with the magenta (pinkish-purple) filters; filters go in the garbage bag, when you’re done. Thoroughly clean up the hole saw and yourself, then get on with your life.

    pocket screw is the word Ace was looking for. If the table has a wood top why not drill for the dowels from the top and drive the dowels in from that end, then cut em a little above flush and round off with some sand paper to look like a through tenon. Hard to say if it would look good or not with no pics. If you are crazy enough to paint a wood window in a shower at least do yourself a favor and use epoxy paint. Couldnt tell what you were talking about double papering but the best solution is fiber mesh and water proofer like red guard or gold guard.

    To make this podcast more effective: they should answer at least 4 questions.

    This show is a “Juggernaut” because it’s better than the main podcast is these days. There is a good focus and flow to it, whereas the main podcast is such a shambles in comparison. The charm was lost by over-crowding and rushing it, and there’s rarely the long-form interview anymore. The first show with Frank Stallone was was *seminal*, but the same magic could never have happened with the current format.
    Here, on Ace one the House, Adam and Ray can actually drill down into topics and stories without Brian interrupting for some argument over semantics or playing a drop 20 seconds late.
    You should spend 30 minutes less on the main podcast, and add it to this show.

    One thing is always that one of the most common incentives for utilizing your credit card is a cash-back and also rebate supply. Generally, you’ll receive 1-5% back on various expenses. Depending on the credit card, you may get 1% back again on most expenses, and 5% again on buying made in convenience stores, gasoline stations, grocery stores plus ‘member merchants’.

    I love that they reference Dave Meggett. I wonder if they know he’s doing 30 years for rape. He was a good player though.

    I wonder how many people have died or are ill because they worked or lived in a place with asbestos and they don’t even know they were.
