Re: Did you read the blog about the issues with the Judging Standards

Re: Curing The Black Ooze

Bob,


Some have found it necessary to plane even new heads.

Re: Gas valve on position

Shake your head up & down meaning 'yes' .... gas is on.


Shake your head side to side meaning 'no'....gas is off.


Got something else, get the correct gas valve.
