But MtnDave, that sidewalk issue could likely lead to a problem in the frame of the house, so best get a new house

I was hoping mebbeh I could swing by the warehaus when miles is there so he can supervise and lend a hand. Because to be honest I have no idea wtf I'm doing

Also what Dangle said about fiery infernos
Flailing + fuel...this should be good.

That's a good point. Actually, there's a chance that an earthquake will create a sinkhole that would open up from the sidewalk and then the house would be sucked in. I better have the sidewalk repoured AND have the house rebuilt asap.

Might as well reinforce the foundation while you're in there.

I've got the super long ones that are 12" and 18".
last time I wanted to open the ecu box I needed one. they're useful because they're small and fit everywhere.
just realized I do have a set of two from my old craftsman tool set.
