    Right. Personally, I'd use what I have available. Seems Funklab doesn't have a Dremel. Personally, I don't mind spending $100 on a Dremel plus more for the cutting and grinding wheels because I like...

    If your chair doesn't have adjustable height, it's best to get the Ride Custom cushion with a new chair. Also make sure to instruct them to make the nominal sitting height at the middle of the height...

    I've used a hacksaw to cut my aluminum footrest. Then file down the edges. I'm sure it would work fine for the fork. Far less expensive than a Dremel.

    I looked into some more because I'm also considering building a house in Connecticut. The requirement for any foundation is that it goes below the frost line (the lowest point at which water...

    Any chance? Every basement has that chance. Every basement I've seen leaks at least a little. If not water, at least condensation. You have to dry it immediately. Otherwise, mold that gets into the...

    Let us know what you find about building a basement completely underground such that the entry doors to the first floor are at grade (no steps, no ramps). I haven’t seen them. But it may be just an...

    I get that you're committed to a basement. That's neither here nor there. This is about offering context to the reader so that the reader can make an informed decision. The reader may want to...

    I have never seen a house with a basement that has all entry doors at grade level. Have you? With a slab, that is easily done. Big quality of life difference. You have to decide what's more valuable...

    I've used Duoderm in the past successfully. In addition to helping the wound heal, it also provides a cushion. I found that it seems to make the wound larger initially. Maybe because it's removing...

    How much do you think it will cost to build a house including cost to connect to utilities (may be a significant cost)?

    I don't know who is responsible for the delivery of the chair, Tilite or the DME. My guess it's the DME. They delivered my chair with loose and missing parts. You could be missing parts.

    I have never heard of this configuration. I would explore this further. My understanding is that there should be 2 bearings and an internal spacer in between. This internal spacer is in addition to...

    If I recall correctly, your picture of your new chair shows that your casters are 1.5" (width of the tire). This may be the one you have (probably the case for a new TiLite chair):

    The spacer you show is for a 3/4" hub caster. A standard spacer (shown below) is for a 1" hub caster. If you have a 1" hub caster, you have the wrong spacer. That may be the problem. Otherwise, it's...

    The Natural Fit handrims are great because they are ergonomic. But I find the strip to be pretty much useless for my needs. Actually worse than useless because the rubber stains my hands and it's a...

    Got it. Obviously, my initial post was about the sling upholstery. That's the part that you have to work at cleaning. The covers just go in the washer. If that doesn't work (yuk), time for a new...

    It was a general question to all. Because it seems there is some mix up. The seat and back have upholstery. The cushion has a cover, not upholstery. Just to clarify so we're all talking about the...

    Statistics? Take them with a grain of salt. The # of snow days don't account for residual snow and ice. Let's say it snows 1 day but the snow lasts for of a week or more and then turns into ice for...

    I just wipe it down with any cleaner I have on hand like 409 or even windex as needed. The hard part is the wheels and casters. Steam cleaning works well. It would also work well for upholstery. You...

    I turn my Ride Custom cushion upside down. It's doesn't give at all and provides about 3-4" of height above the floor. From there I can usually lift myself onto a couch. The key word is usually....
