Nothing. I always adhere to Clint Eastwood's advice, "A man's gotta know his limitations"

I tried to adjust my slide to accommodate laminate flooring and ended up destroying the skids on my slide that cost me over a thousand bucks to fix including a motor.

I was thinking the same thing....

Not that it cost anything, but it would have been nice to outsource clearing out a sewer clog. The old poop pyramid is not an easy thing to face....

Is there a man out there that will admit to this question. Not if my wife is listening. She says I'm a know it all.

I declare this thread dead. You might as well asked if any of us ever asked for directions

Nothing I can think of, but I have made repairs that would have cost hundreds of dollars had I not used a little common sense and done some research.

OK, this is almost in range. I opened the control cabinet on my Generac generator to see why it had no output. That's as far as I got. The fools had wired a wire directly from the heavy starter terminal into the control box. That wire went to the wrong side of a fuse holder. When I opened the cover, the fuse holder shorted on the metal box and melted the wiring harness.

So now I get to go in to have re-wired or replaced. Still don't know why it wasn't working. Shouldn't have done that.

+1 My thoughts exactly. I find it cheaper to hire someone who knows what he's doing and has the proper tools to do it. Saves a lot of aches, pains and frayed nerves. Also saves on the beer bill.

I agree with old Clint, and I find more and more limitations the older I get. Seems as though I am rapidly becomming a "limited edition".
