Just curious, what is your native language?

I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're going to feel all day.

Thanks, but I will just stick to a battery, a short piece of resistance wire and a couple of pieces of zip cord.

I buy sheet foam as sheet foam for installation as sheet goods. Walk-in meat cold rooms and so on.
Please show me 10 things that I can make from elaborate dingaling cutouts.
Otherwise, I install sheet goods as sheet goods and a serrated bread knife is a wonderful cutter.
Yours,

We use a hot wire at work for another company within ours. At first they were cutting the sheets on the slider which was dangerous and eventually bought a hot wire which is very safe. https://poly-stone.com/collections/all ....
