  • Posted in thread: Rust suppression in a radiator, suggestions? on 09-29-2012 at 12:11 AM
    Use distilled water, it has the minerals removed so they cannot react with the steel and cause
    oxidation.I know distilled water is recommended for use in rads, but I have to disagree with
    the wording ...

    You can get a corrosion inhibitor. It's a product that allows you to use straight water as
    coolant in your car if freezing isn't a concern. 'Water Wetter' is one brand name that I know
    of. Not sure ho...

    Another vote for Oxi-clean. I used it to clean red wine out of a glass carboy once and I was
    surprised at how well it worked. I don't think we had a brush, so we just threw in a couple
    scoops of Oxi-c...

    My old roommate had a novel (read: ghetto) approach to his homemade wine. He would take a
    garbage bag (new, obviously, but not sanitized) and use electrical tape to seal the end of the
    bag around the ...

    I wouldn't be surprised if you had more teams in your fantasy league than there are in the
    actual CFL...I saw Martin Short (good Canadian kid) on Letterman once in the mid 90's, back
    when Ottawa was s...

    I'll admit I'm not the most die-hard CFL fan around, but I was at the Grey Cup last year and
    got to see Lulay lead our hometown Lions to victory. He was named Most Outstanding Player too
    and from inte...

    I had a chicken at my place in East Van for a month or two. Me and a buddy 'liberated' it from
    a local slaughterhouse/processing plant/whatever you want to call it (It's nearby in the
    industrial area ...

    Plasma can cut any metal. That's one of the big advantages of plasma over oxy-fuel is that you
    can do so much more. Different gases can be used and that my affect the quality of the cut.
    However for s...

    Another vote for the Freakin' Frog. Haven't been to any of the others, but the Frog was great.
    There's also a pretty serious whisky room upstairs if you're into that too.

    Another idea is strawberry-rhubarb beer. I've done 2 batches of strawberry-rhubarb wine and
    I've always wanted to do a beer that way.

Brien C Weldless? Why would anyone want to weld less?
