    Can you kill them with birdshot? Or do you need a slug?:1drink:1drink

    The almost average 9yo boy would love to have that as a pet. Gentle little beasts, they are.

    Can't see how it's a hazard, unless you walk around the shop in socks. Or if it's hiding in your toolbox and you reach in blind. That might suck. :huh

    The ones we'd see crossing the Turner Turnpike in OK in the 70s could be felt through the suspension if we ran over one.

    I nudged him (her?) onto a dustpan and put him under a creosote bush about 30' from the shop. About 1/2 hour later he came back...

    Then I took him out to a mesquite tree about 75' away. I didn't see him after that.

    I think you've lead it on and confused that spider, poor lil' thing.:lol3

    Good for you but you should have left it in the shop to who you could scare :wink:. Of course if I did that and my Wife saw it I'd have to mop up the pee and poo AND sleep on the couch for a couple of days :lol3

    put something on and stay in that position.
    I throroughly endorse spider relocation. I have no trouble with them around the shop.

    more spiders=fewer other bugs.


    just stay out of the helmets, please.

    We don't have those big bastards, though.

    I would either sell the house or burn it down- or both!

    I'm not ashamed to say that I would kill that thing immediately after jumping backwards and screaming like a little bitch :eek1

    I'd kind of hate to. It would seem like such a waste. :wink:

    OK... really nice shop, probably don't want to burn it down. But it IS in the middle of the desert, so selling sounds like the best bet :D

    Would you look at all that room. Put a little spider house in the corner and name it Spike. Hang it's picture with beware of guard spider and your set.

    How do you like your lift. Did you do much thinking on 2 post vs 4 post?
    I was just about ready to buy a 4 post then my wife and I started looking at a different house I got scared it would be one more heavy piece to have to move. Nice shop, please dirty the place up a bit, does not look like you are using it. Or at least come over and clean mine up, I have organization envy. SN

    :lol3 I clean up after each job. That way it doesn't get out of hand.

    2 vs 4
    It would be nice to have one of each! A two post lets you have much better under car access. There's not as much lift in the way. A 4 poster is really nice for ease of getting the vehicle up in the air. For general use, you'd almost have to have rolling jacks with the 4 post. Of course with a 4 post a guy could start thinking about alignment equipment. :deal
