I'm just blaming the administration that started it decades ago.  :|  Maybe even before you were born. Things were working out fine before all the mergers and acquisitions (to increase the ROI of course).  You can put any spin you want on it Ed, but that won't change my view of this.

I used a similar setup for a specific part of my old layout.
I called it the "Home incineration gun", lol.

I guess Makita is independent. I remember when 'Makita' was synonymous with cordless drill.

What's the fun in that?! 

I just use a wire wheel in a drill.  :D


You should get some of that new gray foam - you'd then have an unlimited supply of lightweight scale gravel and small rocks.
