A few years ago, I was doing demo on an old hospital building that was being remodeled into office space.

Late one afternoon, I was cleaning up some of the mess we had made during the day while the foreman was in another room, cutting copper pipes out of the ceiling with a sawzall.

I was sweeping, and I thought I heard water running, but didn't think too much about it. Pretty soon, one of the guys come out of the room and ran down the hall. Went to see what was going on, and Dave had cut one of the main water pipes on the wrong side of the valve

They had to shut the whole building off, which made the people in the clinic next door very unhappy; and there was over a million dollars in water damage down stairs...

I am SO glad it was the foreman that did that and not me!!!

BuzzLOL . Yeah, it gets 15 or 20 below zero here in winter so opening up a 9' door lets a lot less heat out than a 16 or 18 footer...

MARTINSR My problem is that I have a one car driveway that I have to squeeze back past a fence and the house where it's only ten feet away into the back yard to the garage that is 20 feet past the house. The one door now is straight back so I can roll back there and in the garage pretty easily. The door to the left would be behind the house and I will need to take a pretty sharp turn as I come out to get around the corner. It's pretty easy with the convertible when the top is down. But other than that, it's kinda challenging.

I have plans with the space and the money, going to open up the back of my garage and put a second door on the front. It REALLY needs a new garage door and it really needs another one. I may change to one big one but right now I am thinking to just put two one car doors.

And I got the water tank out and sized up on what it will take to put the one in that I have been saving for 15 years or so. I hope to get what I need at the RV shop tomorrow. Cross your fingers!

If possible a pan, or finger brake, will really come in handy too. Woodard Fab and a couple other companies offer them in the 500-600 dollar range. If you can't do that at least buy as heavy duty unit as you can afford. The light duty ones will not make a consistant full length brake and welding two pieces together to make one piece is frustrating. But,.... it can be done. John
. Not sure how often I'll use a brake so don't want to put much in one... looking at $279 36" one with stand at harbor freight... biggest they have... of course, HF has 10 prices on everything... and car magazine coupons seems to be the lowest at $189 on it so far... as you mention above, any bigger brake will prolly entail a quantum leap in price above that... haven't looked around much... prolly should have looked at shop closing auctions...

. I think in the 1980's they called those "graphics", not 'clown stripes', and you couldn't live without them, remember...? ... LOL! ... WHAT were we thinking...
