If this doesn't beat all !!!! A bunch of guy's talking about doing Laundry! :loosing_it: :tapping_fingers:

I was told a week after we were married that the laundry room was off limits to me and that works just fine.

Bill, I just try keeping the equipment working, and I guess the best way I can do that is to empty my pockets every evening! .No laundry for me in years, except washing the cow towels at the parlor.

A couple of years ago I bought a nice Kershaw knife with open assist. Left it in my pocket and my wife brought it to me in pieces. I can't believe no clothes got sliced up. My Spiderco has been washed so many time it isn't funny.

When we get a good washer or dryer for scrap they go in the shed for spares. When one breaks we just go grab another one. So far we have changed one washer and 3 dryers. Total investment - about $200 counting the 2 washers and 1 dryer I have in the shed.

The washer is all back together. Just need to slide it back into place, then hook up the water & drain hoses. Gotta go feed them cows first.
If the drum ever starts leaking again, I'm springing for a new tub AFTER scouring around for a used one at appliance shops.

All back in place & hooked up, but letting it sit another night before using just to be sure all is well cured. Full strength was 24 to 48hrs anyway, and it's barely been 24.

Well done. Have you put a posty note on the hamper, to "Empty your Pockets"?

I thought about making a bright RED decal for the lid of the washer "Check My Pockets". Many times I plan to wear my work pants again, but she'll snatch them up to wash them. That's when the wayward items get washed.

Glad the epoxy is working !
I had a spray tank that cracked. Used epoxy on it and it has not leaked since.
That was over a year ago.

I spent the last 30 minutes looking for an edited version of the Laundry Scene from the movie Uncle Buck that I could embed. Nothing On YouTube that doesn't have captions or manipulations.

Still, I had this mental image of Daniel, swearing at the washer...

Glad T's feet are staying dry.
