Well let's see. Gettin it off, easy. Back up, set the brakes. Getting it back on, I'll have to thinks on that
I love the soldering ideas. Perhaps a point system for speed, cleanliness and apperance? The offset ideas are great too.
Buy cheap, buy twice.
I think the relay with a 8" flanged gate valve is a good idea, I know who has one here off an old backflow
I am 180lbs, 6'3" stronger then I look so don't judge the book by it's cover
Laughin' like an idiot here at the posts...thinking of poor Josh slapping his head as he recites to himself, "NO SMACK!"
remember the west coast will be bringing the wives and you don't want to pick on the girls
i do like the other competitions too. just not sure if there is time for each person to compete in each competition.
i think since it's a ridgid tool competition, we need to keep it focused on the tool aspect and not necessarily the plumbing skills, such as piping a model bathroom.
actually the propress vrs. soldering is a great way to introduce you to the tool. it would be no contest as far as speed, so maybe just for kicks to show you the workings of the propress. now add water to the line that won't stop running and the propress is the super champ.
but if there is a person that wants to race, i'll give you a 50% head start.
basically you do 5 joints and i'll (propress) do 10. sort of like bracket racing.
remember the smaller the pipe the faster the soldering. so 3/4'' is an advantage to you. bigger is a hugh advantage to me. bring on the 4''
no one likes the toilet seat toss or cast iron cutting contest
maybe the ridgid staff can surprise us and come up with the mother of all contest
