Something New, #22

A Few Small Repairs

I have a running list of little chores I tend to ignore. Things that need to be fixed, but have been out of order for so long, I've learned to work around them.

Today I solved the problem of ramming into The Big One's bicycle nearly every time I go into the garage. I installed a bike rack that operates on pulleys, so the bike can be stored from the ceiling, without breaking your back, lifting it up and down. It looks like a Rube Goldberg device. And for a bonus, finally figured out how to use the cordless drill and not strip the screws. (drill the pilot holes deeper.)

Next project: put the gutter shields on the gutter so my basement doesn't leak every time it rains!
