      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 .

sheet rock

Recommended Posts

I started looking at the PDF on codes, and quickly concluded that I have a simple question and I'm sure someone here can answer it a lot quicker than I could find it.

Pulled some sheet rock down from the ceiling in the basement to do a little work. Am I required to put back up 5/8 or can I put up 1/2? I thought I saw somewhere that 1/2 is now OK to put up for ceilings.

5/8 typically. There is some ceiling rock that is 1/2" now though. It will say right on the pieces and the price will let you know also. Only reason is for sagging.

I agree with roofer. Sheetrock on ceilings is normally 5/8" becuase more floor/roof systems are 24" O.C. and sagging is a problem. 5/8" rock also is considered "Fire rock" and needs to be used in situations where a fire barrier is needed, i.e. garage to house walls and ceilngs.

They do have a high strength 1/2" rock to get away from the weight that seems to work good.

If its a repair hole and surrounding rock is 5/8 go with 5/8,If its taped right you wont notice the patch.However if its the whole ceiling,I'd go with the 1/2 inch rated for ceilings,just because its lighter and easier for one to install.

On the other hand if existing is 1/2 and your patching, go with 1/2...5/8 would leave a hump and be very noticible.

I've got whole rooms pulled down (no patching), so I think that the ceiling 1/2" will be the way to go. Thanks.

If you are not having it inspected, code won't really come into play. I would go with 1/2 inch.

There should be a permit issued already when he pulled it down to do some "work".

If the floor joists are 16" on center, you can use 1/2" for the ceiling. You can use 1/2" that is made for larger spans if you can find it. Roofer is right, 5/8" will sag less, but I have put up plenty of houses where we used 1/2" to do ceilings on lower levels.

You can use 1/2 inch on 24 o.c. if you're not texturing. If you're looking at the IRC book make sure you read the exceptions.

I'm 16 on center, so looks like 1/2" is the way to go. Have the wife helping, so this will make momma happy too.

    • Anyone know what depth I should be looking for Walleye’s at? I’ve always went just south of the main city in bayport on the wi side. In 32-36fow seems to be a crappie spot. Any suggestions would be great. 
    • Well, craapy wood work or not. Had a very good day with my son for our first ice fishing trip in 10 years or so and put a few Walleyes on the ice. Let a nice 25" go.     Remember, it's not always what a box looks like. It's what you do with it!
    • Listening to the weather ,,, It sounds like the snow is going to go east of the northern part of the state ,,, I may have to buy a Wisc trail permit and head east
    • I used to watch lake forums very closely to hear the current chatter.  I never fish any of those lakes anymore, but I'm still curious.  Not to knock on any specific site, but it seems there is no longer any lake-specific chatter on the web.  Five to ten years ago, those forums were on fire with tips, pictures, etc.  Have they burned themselves out due to acceleration of info and subsequent mobbing, or what's the deal?   A few weeks ago, even the DNR made comment that the speed of information has had an impact on fisheries.     Curious what others think.  
    • Nice win tonight, but my goodness! I hope they never wear those uniforms again! 
    • Haven’t really posted on here all year, but here goes. It was an absolutely terrible season for me. I work 14 days then I’m off 7 days, and my 7 days off fell just so that I was only able to get out twice in November and then 5 days last week. Thankfully, last week made up for it and we shot some incredible trophies including 9 cinnamon teal, several mottled ducks, tons of perfect teal and even a hen Goldie and hen can, which are really weird for the salt. It’s really been a ball figuring out these coastal waters for the last 4 seasons, and I’m still learning new stuff every time I go out
    • I've hunted "A" a few times.  This season has accounted for the easiest and hardest hunts for me to date.  I've gone to hunting the middle seasons and find the birds more predictable.   I've had some great hunts late season as well.  My credo is hunt when you can....
    • Yes...yes it is.....way cheaper then a 10in Nils at $360.
    •     Sounds like a great time. Our day was ok as well, but different!  First time Ice fishing with my son in about 10 years. Still got to use the sled but hope to hit the trails yet some where this winter.
