I did have a problem with the set screws on the auxiliary power hubs and the set screw in the motor pulle...

Re: New TV Show with Tim Allen and Richard Karn and

Watched it last night, well at least the first half. The format reminded me of Forged in Fire. The name "Assembly Required" should have been "Lunacy Required". This was probably one of the worst installments of a TV show that I have ever seen. Tim Allen should be ashamed that he ...
