The Studio Vent

The Studio Vent

Adam rants about a newly installed vent, and Ray helps answer questions about redoing a shower, and ripping a tree stump out of the ground.


Show Summary

At the top of the show, Adam talks about the renovations going on at ACE Broadcasting. Recently his assistant Jay installed a fan to help circulate the hot air, but there were some issues along the way that Adam addresses. The guys also respond to a couple of emails; one dealing with wood and tile floors not matching up properly, and the other regarding rusted door hinges.

Later in the show, the guys take your Home Improvement phone calls. One guy had a tree knocked down in the recent LA windstorms, and Adam and Ray help him remove the rest of the stump. They also talk to a caller trying to redo her shower, and another working on his basement. The last call is from a guy trying to add electrical outlets into his bedroom.

    Hey, Ray, little sunscreen buddy. Ray to Miguel: “So you’re a rich Mexican!” Those stump grinders are the loudest machines in the world. Great ‘cast as always!

    On your gallery pic #9/10, the dipped strawberries have overflow chocolate or white coating; photos on the sponsor’s website are perfectly dipped, no overflow. Please explain.

    Sorry, Ray. Adam’s idea for Mitch, at LEAST a half inch, is better, and easier. Careful when you pick out your threshold/saddle, to understand how much height clearance you need for your door to close, as that joint is in the wrong spot; the door needs to clear the height of your saddle.

    Glue is hard and very liquid; it soaks into pores of stuff like wood. Mastic is reinforced, as with fibers; it flexes, when glue breaks. Problem can be when mastic is reinforced with asbestos fibers, so pop-it off with sharp tools, don’t grind it, if you aren’t sure. Remember, asbestos is perfectly legal in Mexico and Canada, so even new mastic products (thanks to NAFTA) can be loaded with asbestos, straight from the store. Just ’cause it’s newish, doesn’t mean it’s safe to sand it. Same applies to drywall and joint compound; assume it came from somewhere else, before you grind on it.

      Hey Ryan-

      We are working on it… hopefully we’ll have him on in the new year, but we’re still waiting to hear back.
