    understand exactly the position your in gotta do it like they say .....fwiw if you have a choice and a chance in that type of facility we would never accept drilled holes into the galv or even painted steel to hang things we allways required clamp hangers

    A bit about how it was done for anyone who would care to know or might have to do a repair. http://www.theplumbinginfo.com/plumbing-101-cast-iron-soil-pipe/

    71HS0QQ48BL._SX522_.jpg Caulking irons.jpg
    Think I might could still actually caulk a joint and pour some lead, still have the irons, EPA would find out and shut me down. Wonder I ain't dead from inhaling that stuff.

    Note: No ass-is-bestest in that oakum!

    I'm finding the copper drains in my house are wearing thin and on occasion will leak. Had a 4" vertically installed waste pipe going into the cast iron union that leads out of the house develop a crack on me. Got that and the horizontal 2" line that carries the kitchen sink replaced last month. The 2" line was so full of stuff that I was surprised any water past through.

    Sikaflex! Sticks like the proverbial to anything! ... and seals well. I have fixed old iron plumbing with it when the pros told me total replacement was the only option.

    You need something like this, (picture) However. a vicegrip tool would work.
    MON27.JPG
    Wrap it around the pipe, clap it with a slight gap up top on the horizontal run and pour the lead into the gap, then caulk the lead tight.

    Best way today, is to break it all out and scrap it. Save the lead for making bullets. Install plastic.

    took a lot out of food plants ..the bottom of the pipe would be gone due to cleaning chemicals in the plant....put back in sch80 cpvc or duriron with no hub fittings....we did have one plant that required sch80 cast iron with a double lead joint but i never watched the plumbers do the work...

    Does anyone else wrap up their extension cords like this?....
    This isn't the best example but it's easy to unwrap it and it doesn't get tangled up when I throw it in the garage....
    image.jpg

    Not mine but my pops carried one to work like this when I was a kid.
    I used an Igloo 6 pack cooler and an Stanley thermos with a copper handle...

    Used to do that with my own when I worked out of a truck. Don't do it much any more as they are wrapped separately and place on a shelf. Did it with a company cord one time, pissed off the next guy that tried to use it, dummy couldn't figure out all he had to do was grab the slip and pull. Once I showed him, he cussed me out.... I have 3-4, 100 footers now, I tried doing those a time or two and it does work okay, just takes longer than I want to spend doing them up that way. The 50 footers, it works better. I use so many battery tools now, that I very seldom need an extension cord.

    I braid cords 50' or longer. They are a biotch to unwrap if done the wrong way.

    Dan you saves me a bunch of typing, for sure. I did exactly the same thing. Only stopped when I became the owner (smirk). Like Taz said, ok with the lighter cords, but a pita with the 10's. We did a lot of new track homes and there were times when the developer was to cheap to put in power poles, so we ran of the 10kw genset on the flatbed. That was when we used the 10's and a home made 4 outlet box to fork off of. Metal framing and serious drywall piece work required corded screw guns and chop saw's. We are going back 15-20 years here and the early battery stuff just wasn't what it is today.

    @spinalcracker
    Saw a lot of those lunch pails when I was a wee one. Thanks for the memory. I grew up in the city for 11 years, and used the city bus to get back and forth to grammar school, and would see "working men" carrying them every day. Never had one myself, but I did brown bag it till the day I retired. I believed in doing 8 hrs. work in 6 hrs. because it is so dang hot down here in the summer time. On the job at sunup and be gone by 2 pm. Though there were times we would come back a 5 pm and work till dark. Everybody stops work outside when the sun is at high noon, even the brown skinned fellas.

    After a cold windy and brutally wet winter we're finally short windows of the sun. Nothing worse than being wet with 40 MPH winds and temps in the teens. There were a few times where we had bucket up salt water to dump on the frozen lines to make them usable. Just glad it seems we've turned the corner into something resembling spring.

    Sunrise at the terminal yesterday. It was still only 36 degrees at my house when I got up.

    We survived SirT. Many roads washed out and interstates shut down in low lying areas around here last weekend though. Big mess, Thanks for the concern Mr.

    That's right Dialbro am out of 4g again and get a crap signal here so forum pics wont load. Went ahead and thanked you and Smootherine's post sight unseen.

    We're still at the water treatment outfit, should wrap our part up tomorrow. We no shit decked the top of those 2x10's rolling around on creepers, man the splinters.

    Total ficking nightmare, been super busy since the grass started growing here also. My rider went down last year with silver troy and I've been push mowing most all day every Saturday, leafing me one day to rest, and ive been golfing and gardening instead.

    A good bud of mine called yesterdee afternoon and got me a smoking deal on a riding mower. Should cut my mow time in half or better and improve my outlook on life tremendously. Sounds funny but grass problems can get a man down.

    All is well sirs, will try not to be a stranger er.

    Glad everything turned out OK for ya stondey. I don't have grass, just weeds and got some working guy from Argentina who mows lawns on his day off. He does mine and a couple others. Little more than a acre cut, trimmed for $70.00. I stay cool inside now like some rich fat cat.

    Vacationed a while (Florida - all the way to the Keys), - now trying to catch up on work around the place. Cut my left index finger on my table saw, had to go to ER and have it sewed up, wasn't pretty. Saw kicked back while I was cutting narrow strips. Son is gonna finish up the few left to do with his bandsaw. Assembled several bee frames today, hilled potatoes, etc. several other projects to stay busy at in the works.

    And you didn't stop in for a beer? Shame on ya.
    Sorry to hear about the finger, I did that once. Hurt's like the dickins. Just last night I was opening a box with my K-Bar of all things, and just lightly touched my finger and put a 1/16 slice in it with ease. Skin thins with old age, but the mind still thinks like a 30 yr. old. So OK, you are excused from posting till ya heal up. But ya are still in the doghouse for not even waving as you went by.

    Oh yeah, I thought about you and Walt while I was down there. Did stop on the way home long enough to visit a Lowe's store and buy a few trees for the sun room, got the military discount. Also grabbed a couple bags of oranges. Waved a few times at some of the locals, won't say with which hand or how many fingers.... We visited the mother-in-law over at the west coast, went down the two lane road through the Glades, then somewhere out in the Keys, we kinda decided it was time to turn the van around and head north. There was smoke, there was fire in the Glades and it did rain while in the Keys. Took a kayak tour around in a circle, didn't get lost in the swamp. Walt mentioned the different shades of blue in the Keys, wife and I noticed that, thought is was one of the best parts of it, even with all the traffic going both ways. Anyone gets the time to go, don't go on a weekend, prices are double on the weekends.

    Now I gotta start thinking about building on that sunroom, all those trees are taking over the living room. We're gonna call it the Florida Room!

    Walt lives about 2 miles away by the crow fly's. Personally haven't been to the key's in ages, gotten way too crowded for my liking. The smoke you saw was prolly them burning off the sugar cane fields after harvest. The so called 'locals' are just replants from upper you a$$. Hard to find any locals any more. Most got smart and sold off their land to Yankee's for millions and headed north to Ocala and Destin. "Florida Room" is trademarked, so I'll be expecting ya to pay up for using the name. Otherwise sit back, relax and get that dang finger healed. K?

    Link don't like the idea I'm using a adblocker so I can't read the article. Water is a female dog, and it has no mercy. I'll say a prayer for those folks. I remember driving south through LA. along the river after I left Kirks house in Hot Springs saying to myself how do these people live there. Those levy's would make me wear depends full time.
