Touch the Soft Spot

Adam and Ray discuss restoring a WWII foot locker and recall a brilliant practical joke. The guys also look back on their high school book reports, and talk about their friend’s addiction to Peppermint Schnapps.

Show Summary

At the top of the show, Adam and Ray talk about the special edition copies of Not Taco Bell Material that Ray is signing. They then jump right into answering your home improvement questions with a video question about cracked concrete, and emails about the best basic power tools and how to restore a WWII footlocker. Later they jump to the phones and answer questions about filling a hollow part of the floor, painting cement near a stove, and how to have fun in Alaska. As the show wraps up, Adam goes on a tangent about pumpkins, and the guys recall their friend’s addiction to Peppermint Schnapps.

    Porter-Cable is Black & Decker, just like Dewalt.

  • AbetterWorld

    Don’t listen to Aceman regarding Dewalt. They make some really good tools such as 10inch sliding WITH OPTIONAL LED LIGHT (awesome, not crappy laser) compound saw, routers, track saw, the new brushless 20V lithium drill/impact, and a whole bunch more. In fact, if I wasn’t so invested in my Makita 18V lithium tools & batteries, I’d buy Dewalt. At the time, Dewalt’s offering wasn’t a good deal. BTW, I’m a high end finish carpenter. No brand makes the best of everything.

      Dewalt stuff is fine, but it’s way overpriced.

    Why does the player lose track of my place when I pause it? Also, the little indicator gets to the end before the podcast is over and if I pause it, it just starts over. None of the other podcasts I listen to on the Ace network do this. It makes me avoid listening to this unless I know I have enough time to listen to it uninterrupted. I’m a big fan Adam, Ray and all the others, keep it up guys!

    Regarding the viewer video with the cracked concrete. How come people can’t seem to figure out to hold their phone so it shoots the video in landscape instead of portrait? Come on Bob, get with it, it’s 2012.

    I’ve been in Alaska for the past year and would like to nominate a new motto for the state.

    Alaska: We have this much beer for a reason

    Sehr gutes Portal, mцchte aber eine Version fьr Handys zu sehen.

  • Scooter Zamboni

    This show is hilariously informative. Its like a refuge for men who believe that they are the ultimate handymen. Well at least these guys know what their talking about, and actually gives useful advice.
