We’re planning our schedule for the Tool Talk and One Beer Project podcasts and would like your opinion on future guests and projects.  Specifically:

What guests would you like to hear on Tool Talk?  We really enjoyed Ed Fowler — as did you judging from our email — but what other people would you enjoy?

What projects would you like to hear about in OBP?  Or maybe a better question is: as the neighborhood “tool dude,” what “quick fixes” are you constantly explaining to your friends and neighbors?  Let us know in comments.

We appreciate any suggestions you have, and remember: these are “valid comments” that count as an entry into our Ridgid pneumatic giveaway!

    How about installing a fold down attic ladder (may be more effort than 1 beer though)

    Or tool comparison testing. For example, in a side by side test, compare Husky, Craftsman, Harbor Freight, Stanley, Kobalt, Snap On, etc for simple hand tools like screwdrivers, combintion wrenches and sockets. After seeing the prices to add some Craftsman wrenches to fill out my kit, I’m wondering if there’s not an equal alternative for a reasonable price.

    It’s a one beer project and I’m tired of helping people with it: rebuilding toilets. It’s not rocket science, but damn some people make it harder than it has to be.

    T: Good idea. That’s one we should have thought of ourselves… Look for it in the near future.

  5. I don’t often listen to the podcasts (I like to be able to skim articles, and audio makes that difficult) but I promise I’d tune in if there were a feature on pressure-washers. I find myself trotting down to the coin-op car wash every few weeks to blast the crap out of something, and I wonder where my break-even point would be for owning my own equipment.

    I don’t just want fast-moving water, though. I like being able to flick between soap injection, degreaser injection, and plain water. I have a feeling that such a “deluxe” setup would be squarely out of my price range, but I’m curious by how much.

    A how-to on installing a new (or relocate an existing) electrical outlet would seem pretty helpful. I’ve met a ton of folks that are pretty handy but don’t know the basics on anything electrical. So I suppose anything in that realm might be useful really.
