      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Hanging Doors

Recommended Posts

Seems like a couple of bedroom doors in my house are a bit off with the top hanging down enough to make opening and closing them difficult.

Any tricks to straightening them?

Thanks

You need to put a long screw through the hinge. Remove one of the short screws out of the bottem hinge[use the screw nearest to the door stop]. Drive in a 3" screw in its place. This will pull the top corner of the door on the knob side down and clear the head jamb. You can do the same thing if there is too much gap in the head jamb by driving a screw in the top hinge.

Thin cardboard, like shoeboxes, can be used to shim out the hinges on the door as well. Try the longer screws first, if that doesn't work try shimming the hinges (frame side). Small steps make big changes, so go slow.

Like they said shim or screw it this will make it level. If it is off just a bit you can just use a hand planer on the tight spots.

I always took a visegrip and bent the top hinge pin receivers on the jamb side back away from the door,Just a bit remove mid hinge pin if there is one and install top pin,then adjust center hinge on jamb side.Most doors with time sag those little hinges dont hold the weight forever.

Depends on where it is dragging, on the head jamb, or the side jamb. It sounds to me like it is a head jamb by your explanation.

If the door has shifted slightly, so the door is dragging on the side jamb, then it is either an adjustment of the hinges with more secure screws, like stated above, or tap a little more sidespace out of the jamb. (this will change the reveal on the casing slightly).

If its just a headspace problem, before I would do anything with the hinges, I would simply but a wonderbar under the end of the jamb that has sagged and see if it is receptive to some slight adjustment. (Enough to allow the headspace to be corrected.) If it is, I'd raise it and shim it there, between the bottom of the jamb and the floor. At that time, then I would look at refastening it tighter to the side jambs.

If it is the hinge side that has sagged, then you will have excessive headspace at the top of the door, If the jamb side has sagged,(which typically doesn't happen, but floor systems ((joists in particular)) can change enought to affect the spacing here) then the door will drag at the top on the jamb.

So, its a gap in the headspace, between the head jamb and the door, and its wider at the latch side, than the hinge side. If this is the case, it shouldnt be rubbing anywhere, because there is excessive headspace. If its sagging at the hinge, that can also change the headspace tolerance, but not nearly as visual and it will drag at the top, on the latch side. It sounds to me like the top hinge needs to be refastened to the jamb, with a longer screw or screws. All the way thru the jamb, into the framing jamb stud. Not alot of torque is needed to pull it back into position. Sometimes, you can close the door, and lift on the handle and see if the door moves back into position temporarily. If you can move it, then simply adding a longer jamb screw will alleviate the problem.

    •   Is this some of your new Marketing idea's for the site Dave?
    • Snuck out today had one walk by 40 yards no shot ones gobbling at me across swamp making hos way now
    • If the refs call the game tight like they did in game 3, i think we come away with the W.  If they kind of turn a blind eye like they did in Game 4, the series is over.
    • Koivu has been pretty decent and our leading out team with 4 points but ya we just never find that next level. Our patchwork D hasn't been the issue, Stall hasn't produced like we needed him to and Nino, Coyle & Zucker have zero points between them. We needed our "depth" to score and they haven't. Coyle I think has been the best of him but he just isn't a goal scorer, has let numerous golden opportunities slip away. Hopefully the wild surprise tonight, otherwise its on Dubs to pitch a shutout and magically assists on the game winning goal. 
    • Saw that Morrisey is suspended for tonight.  Really too bad they missed the call during the game.  Should've been a 5 min major and a game misconduct.  Really would've changed the entire game IMO.  There are lots of times I wish Boogy was still around.   Staal needs to be checked for a concussion and Koivu needs to be checked into a retirement home.     Seems like we can pull up last years playoff and offseason threads and just ride that until October.  Same story, can't compete with a couple heavy blue liners and can't score.  
    •  KooWell team i got a nlce tom this morning, longest spur is 1 1/16 and beard is over 10.5 " and i know he' s well over 20 #'s . Off to work and ill get pictures up later on. Heres one for now.
    • Went for a short hunt yesterday morning. Mostly a scouting mission to hear what is around. Just before 6:00 am had 4-5  different gobblers going off about 200 yards away on neighbors land. Sometimes those birds come my direction, They did not. They made very few gobbles on the ground. I sat until 9 then packed it up, hearing nothing after 7:00. I did see 8 deer so that was cool.. Hoping to get my son out Sunday afternoon/evening......
