Recently came upon an old fire pull station box. Always love seeing these bad boys so decided to spruce it up and going to turn it into a bottle opener/storage for bottles for my brother who is on the local fire department. Not done yet but I love it.

Nicely done

Fantastic! I cannot wait until my pink dogwood is in bloom (another month or so)

My pink dogwood finally popped this week, along with a white one in the background.

That's one thing I miss about being in FL in the spring. Flowering Dogwoods and also Redbuds. And BTW why do they call them Dogwoods? Redbuds make sense.

Flowering dogwood is named for the showy spring flowers. The common name dogwood comes from one colonial description of the fruit as being edible but not fit for a dog. The common name dogwood is also thought to be from the use of the wood for skewers or “dogs.” Other common names include boxwood and cornel.

I screwed up a grip install last night for the first time since starting to regrip my own clubs 5-6 years ago. No idea what I did wrong but I couldn't get the grip more than a few inches onto the shaft before it just stuck there. I ended up having to cut it off. Thankfully I had more grips in my closet so not a big deal in the long run, but I was like "WFT just happened?"

I presume you are using solvent & tape?  That's the great thing about the compressed air method... take it on/off simple Simon.

I had that happen as well. I was too stingy with the solvent. Now I apply solvent like a 4 year old cut loose in the house with a fresh gallon paint. 😂 I capture the excess in a paint tray and pour back into the bottle.

That always does the trick - and saving the excess in a pan = $$ saved.

Well, if this one is "Redbuds" then the one in the background would have to be "Whitebuds".  😂

It happened to me many years ago too, then started using lots of solvent and catching the excess.  Now I use air... never a problem.

i cheat and use an air compressor (even with tape and solvent) when they get hard to push on. Had a batch of grips that wouldn't go on very easily, but got another batch of the same model/size grips and they go on much easier. 

also, sometimes some shafts have a big butt. trying to install a 21" arm lock grip on a LAGP armlock shaft that has like a 0.660" butt diameter is one of the worst things i have ever had to do
