I wouldn't, but it seems to work for you. Filling with good quality fuel (treated if need be) will keep all the internal rubber bits from drying out.

On another note I got a Husky 323L this...

I've got a handful of tools in the Bosch 12VMax system. They are great. The power to weight is excellent, and they do 90% of tasks better than bigger tools. I go also have a lot of 18V DeWalt stuff...

I agree with this on bigger saws. Personal experience was that full skip didn't work as smoothly on a 16" bar. We use semi-skip (2 teeth, then 1 space, 2 teeth, etc.) and found that to be the optimal...

Jonsered and Husky are made in the same factory (been there). McCulough is a somewhat lesser saw, and I don't think is related.

Around here, pros run Husky, Jonsered or Stihl. We run all Husky's...

3M VHB. Everything else is just a toy.

Just don't use it on stuff you might want to take apart later.

No personal experience but check the Sikken's product line. They make some stuff for marine use (docks, etc) that is supposedly excellent.

Yeah, that foil stuff is smoke and mirrors. If you were trying to prevent a radiant floor (upstairs) from heating the downstairs, that would help. For other kinds of heating, not so much.

All depends on what insulation you're using. Spray foam as suggested above, you don't worry about venting, you just seal it all up. Will give you the best thermal performance too. Expensive though....

If you can heat the house up a bit and then shut it up tight, I bet you can go a few days.

I'm guessing since you have septic, you also have a well, so no water without the generator? Otherwise...

Used to mount tires for the rally car. 10 ply. Crazy stiff. After much frustration getting them on the rim, we'd goop them up and inflate. A lot. About 50% would seat by 50-60 psi. When they seated...

Sort of. It should be a hot (black) and a neutral (white) from the outlet. The hot goes to the switch. The neutral goes right to the light. Then you run a switched-hot back from the switch to the...

We switched to vegetable based bar and chain oil. I forget the brand. Most saw shops will have it, but it's probably expensive $10-15/gallon (though maybe not compared to moto chain lube). We buy it...

I do have one question, mostly for Zrod. How come he's almost always standing during his wheelies? Is there something about the KLR that makes it more managable if you're standing?

Thanks. :freaky...
