    Guess what jumped into my van?

    I was driving home today from the Chester NJ and saw something by the side of the road. I turned around and confirmed my initial impression.

    I opened the back of my van and it jumped right in like a stray puppy looking for a good home. I think it was lonely by the side of the road.

    Anyway - it works so I need to clean the fabric filters and decide where to hang it. It's gonna be difficult since my garage is only 7' high.

    Cheers

    Jim

    Kind of like the bags of potato chips and Lil' Smokies that keep falling in the grocery cart when Brent is grocery shopping with me

    It's probably good karma . . .

    First thing this morning we donated a desk and dresser to a local church for their rummage sale next weekend.

    Later in the morning we stopped and helped a guy jump start his car by the side of the road. It had apparently stalled and the battery died as he tried to restart it.

    We have been free-cycling household stuff we don't need/want to neighbors. This is a great thing - there are yahoo groups that you can create/join and post things you want to get rid of and other post that they want it. You arrange the transfer and voila - it's gone. We do a local town wide group and we know most of the people in the group. It's a lot less sketchy than some of the county wide groups - you have no idea who is coming to get the stuff and if they have ulterior motives.

    It was just my turn to be on the receiving end of things I guess. . .

    I drove past it at 35 miles per hour and new what it was immediately. Weird . . .

    Cheers

    Very good catch that Jim. Well worth a couple hundred dollars.

    Just to keep the costs down, what i did for replacement filters is bought the fine filter material at home depot its the 3M one. Then made a frame for the front from a previously discontinued replcaeable filter only setup and use this filter material on the first layer. I get 4 or more sheets for the aircleaner out of one 3M packet. Makes it more likely that you keep it clean. You could make a frame to fit from some aluminum angle and a bit of weld mesh. Its a one time cost but much cheaper than buying the JDS filters all the time. I have a grizzly but it seems they all had them made to different non standard sizes.
    cheers
