      I did something similar but got tired of carrying the bucket up the steps. I hooked a submersible pump in the bucked and run a line outside. But I only pump out 1-2 gallons a day or every other day or so..

      Ok , I don't want to be the Debbie Downer here, but putting wires under carpets might be a fire hazard. I might reconsider that one. Check with local fire codes.

      Which post are you referring to?
      It would be great if Travis could add a "quote" feature to the site....

      A small time saver, copying the denture tooth articulating chart and putting a copy in each posterior drawer.
      Makes it easier when you have to repair something and recognize the ant mould.

      I got tired of all the old Ivoclar drawer stacks taking up bench space, so a few screws through the lid under the bench, and now I finally have some drawers.

      Figure it's no secret, but I've never heard anyone mention this either. Get a 25lb dog food container for your each of your plasters and other stones. Dump out of the bag or drop the bag in. 50lb boxes fit if you wiggle a bit for the last to settle the stone at the bottom. Just make sure to spatulate the top layer of powder if you do volume measure instead of weight/mass.
      They all have an airtight rubber seal. Edit: Oooh the best part? They have WHEELS!
      Aaaaand now you know why I never upload pictures.
