    That Tool-Time skit was really a bore. It started off with that jerk giving a 2-finger Boy Scout salute rather than the proper Military salute.

    At that point I shut it off.

    You can tell he was never in the Service...

    The Boy Scout salute is three fingers. The two-finger salute is the Cub Scouts. I can tell you were never a Scout.

    Dunno. Not to be too picky, whether two fingered or three fingered, they saluted with their left hand. It’s probably a special “Tool Time” nearly Navy Boson’s style salute especially designed for a 21 nail gun salute.
    Tim had the controls in his right hand which would demand the left handed Boson’s salute. Coupled with the “two fingered “Wolf” salute, it makes it even more interesting.

    Either way, I wouldn’t recommend a 21 nail gun salute whilst putting an oversized pump on ones vinyl pool. I do not think Hal’s wife would think it proper., no, not proper at all since she has to mow the lawn. Added to the mess, if the lawnmower did perchance hit one of the nails and puncture the pool, the damage would render Hal’s oversized pump useless.

    I don't understand your premise, Bobby Cole...

    You say my wife has to mow the lawn without knowing if this is factual, and how did NAILS get into the discussion?

    Are you sure you didn't ghost-write for Mueller?

    Frank, It's no surprise there was impeller failure! I've seen those pumps, and the resulting cavitation from using Pelton wheels at excessive impeller speeds is what spelled their failure!

    A "ring of buckets" is no way to transfer great volumes of water at high speeds...the Turbine impeller is what was called for!

    I do submit to you sir that it is YOU who wrote in another post that your wife does the lawn in it’s entirety!
    The nails come from the video you said was boring.

    Now, about the ghost-write thing. To compare me to anything Mueller has to do with is like comparing an eagle to a worm. His intelligence level is so low, just about the only career that he could possibly do is politically driven.

    Now, about the pool thing. Aw forget it. You and “overkill the investigation” Mueller need to spend more time together and figure out what’s next to overkill.

    Folks, I might as well lay it on the line:


    Everything I've posted on this thread, with the exception that I'm going to set up an above-ground pool, is pure BS! This includes discussion about pumps, maintenance, pool size, etc.

    It's all Baloney!

    Bobby, we're having a Fencing company coming out to replace that 160-foot, 31 year-old fence with a new Redwood fence at a contracted cost of $5330.

    And THAT'S no Baloney!

    (Bess...I haven't set up my Pool yet...that photo is of the 12-footer I had 3 years go, when I was only 80.)
