• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

We have a 36" workstation sink in the new kitchen (single bowl). It works really well.

So I don't have a dishwasher and I find a double sink invaluable for that task, soak in one side and rinse and stack in the other. What do you need a 36" sink for, skinning rabbits or plucking ducks?

I bought a new faucet a while back and it is too tall for the size of my sink.

If you aren't careful, it is really easy to splatter a bunch of water outside of the sink. Wish I had chosen the almost identical model that was a few inches shorter.

I really need a new faucet. I'm not sure how to install it myself, but I bet there's somebody who will charge me $500 to do it for me.
The wife's been making noises about visiting New York. Get the one you want and I'll stop by and do it for $450. You got a pair of pliers I can use or do I gotta bring my own?

Installing a faucet is like the easiest plumbing task. It only sucks if it is in a confined space you can't get your hand/wrench in.

Dishwashers are significantly more efficient than hand washing.

So you're not even saving the environment by not using the big machine.
american use an absurd amount of water, I wonder if it's still true if hand wash not the american way...

We use a dishwasher for the most part. From what I read when we bought it a few years ago and a quick read of a few sites just now, it seems that dishwashers are more energy efficient if:
1) they're full or close to it,
2) they were built before 2013 (when the US made 5 gallons the max usage per load), and
3) you don't use the heat dry feature.
