Handyman Tips

Our screen door started slamming, instead of sighing shut like it's supposed to. Hmm, probably that tube-thingy connected to it. Honey, can you go to the hardware shop and get another tube-thingy?
Nope. Didn't see anything like it - it's probably too old to still be made.

So, at a local Trash and Treasure sale, I rummaged through a box of hoarded hardware that somebody's wife MADE him give away. Wow, a Warlan No. 1a Pneumatic Door Closer, exactly what I wanted. It had instructions and all the screws in a sealed envelope. $5 please, including all that other stuff you are buying.

And today Jeff and I installed the new door closer. Sigh!
