      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 .

Drywall Repair

Recommended Posts

I had a water heater leak and as a result now have mold growing up on some of the drywall in the basement. It's only about 3-5 inches from the bottom but needs replacing. I'm going to try and do it myself but have never worked with drywall before. Looking for a little advice on the best way to take the old stuff out and replacing with the new. Can I just cut out a foot from the floor and try and seam it from there or what would be the best way to go here. I'm putting in 36" pine wainscotting over this area when I'm done so would I need to be "perfect" in the seams and installation of drywall. A little help on this would be great. Thanks.

Is it surace mold (black and scrapes off with a fingernail) or is it deeper?

Sometimes surface molds can be bleeched, primed and painted.

If it has to be ripped out and replace, then Ease is in the eye of the beholder. Cut your height with a sheetrock saw, carefull not to cut any electric, and bang a hole large enough to get you hands into, then pull... I recomend pailing the pieces as you do it so it stays "cleaner". Under wainscote you should be able to get by with Hanging the rock, sealing the tape/screws, and putting 1 smooth fill coat, and a light sand. If there are visible spost then I recomend the set, fill, smooth, sand method.

It all depends on how picky/patient you are.

Thanks Neighbor Guy. I think the mold is a little more than surface mold but I'm replacing it either way just to be safe. Thanks for the advice.

I really don't now the proper way to get rid of mold, but I think ripping it out, bleaching, re-rocking and then letting it sit for 6 months might be a good idea. I'd hate for the mold to come back under the wainscoat and you not know it. Just a idea.

I have a similar issue going on in my basement as well. The thing that stinks about it is that you don't know how bad the mold is unless you start cutting out sheetrock. In my basement, we probably could get away with removing the rock 3 feet from the floor, but then it seems some of the mold is still on the block wall higher than 3 feet. We decided to just tear all of it out because that wall didn't have plastic between the wall and the sheetrock. I just wonder, if you're not doing wainscoting and want to patch a piece of rock, is it possible to match the texturing on the old rock? Seems to me to be near impossible. I love being a homeowner!

An experienced texture person can get a match that will hardly be noticed unless your looking for it.

A good cure for the molds problem is before walls are stood apply foil back rigid 4X8 sheets to the block glued and tape the foil backed joints,I've installed this way years ago on multiple places and never mold problems!

    • DC to AC converters work well on low AC current but takes a bit of DC battery current. Example a drip coffee maker uses 900 AC watts (7.5 amp) which draws 83 amps DC battery current. 15 AC amps draws 165 DC battery amps. (Based on 110 VAC & 12 VDC). Batteries die quickly converting to AC. https://www.batterystuff.com/kb/tools/ac-to-dc-amperage-conversion-run-through-an-inverter.html
    • Saturday I am going to be duck hunting and I always am excited for opening day!  I know I will get some shooting in but let's just hope the ducks are where I want them.
    • You know there are no guarantees that he signs here for less money. He certainly would have gotten more elsewhere after this season based on comparables. Who are the replacements for him? We have guys that may be a year or two removed from being a top 6 guy, but this buys us time. Worst case he slides down to 3rd or 4th line and one of our young guys still on an ELC elevates if his game drops. He could also be consistent with his last two seasons, a solid #2 center and allow the likes of Kunin and Ek to develop down the lineup.
    • Might find it in here...... https://www.floridamuseum.ufl.edu/exhibits/butterfly-rainforest/id-guide/orange/  
    • Very nice photos eyeguy54.
    • Ya he comes home the 29th getting excited for pheasant going to take a trip out to sodak this year Ended up showing a guy from work who is a first time bow hunter a couple of my spots in Sherburne. Was going to walk kunkel after for grouse but it ended up getting too late so just went home. Was hoping for some good weather this weekend but doesn't look too good. Friday is a high of 90! no thanks Maybe I will get a morning sit in for deer hunting if the rain cooperates
    • anybody know what it is?
    • I've been finding a few hens, but nothing like last year (which was great for me).  Here's one that was just shy of ten pounds sitting next to my daughter.
    • You may as well paddle a green kiddie pool around.  Might find one for 50 cents if you look a little. Um, yeah, I've actually seen it done. 
    • Good move!  I'm sure they are thankful! I might've made an offer if I'd seen this before but they'll probably be better used in the organization that received them. Sorry the hear your hunting days are over.
