Re: Only 6" of 24" lag screw is threaded

Ah, they're 1/2" x 24". So it sounds like these will work just fine.

Thanks!

Only 6" of 24" lag screw is threaded

I've joined the converted and am moving from rebar to lag screws this year. I ordered a bunch of 24" lag screws, and they came today. Unfortunately, only the first 6" of them is threaded, the rest is just plain shank. Will these hold okay? I'm planning to drive them 12" - 18" into the playa to be th...

Want to host a spanking class?

I'm looking for camps in which to teach my spanking class this year. The village that I run doesn't really have a good space for it. I've taught this class on Playa for a bunch of years, and can provide references from camps who have hosted in the past. It's an hour long class, in a lecture/demo for...

Re: Cordless hammer drill to drive rebar?

Vice grips are okay, I guess. I have an actual stake puller that makes even the toughest rebar pulling almost effortless.

Re: Cordless hammer drill to drive rebar?

Okay, after spending ALL morning reading the lag screw threads, I'm a convert. I'll be using a DeWalt 885 impact driver at 116 ft-lb (converted from their stated 1400 in-lb) of torque, and charging the batteries on my solar Yeti 400. I'll be using 1/2" x 24" for the monkey hut (I've been using 2' re...

Re: Cordless hammer drill to drive rebar?

Thanks. You seem to be suggesting exactly what I said I wasn't going to do - lag screws and a generator. :)

Cordless hammer drill to drive rebar?

I was looking at the Litebrite rebar hammer, which is a bit of overkill for my needs (plus our Village is a no generator zone). Most of the hammer drill vs drill driver discussion I've seen is about lag screws, but rebar works great for my monkey hut so I intend to keep using it. My question is if a...

Re: Renting a gray water tank?

Okay, let me try again. Does anyone have any suggestions exactly where one might rent a gray water tank in the Bay Area?

This may be moot - my spouse pointed out a place to me that might work to store it during the year, so I might just buy one or two.

Renting a gray water tank?

I'm thinking of building a shower this year, which would require a gray water holding tank, probably not more than a 55 gallon one. I know that the plastic barrels are pretty cheap, but I don't really have a good place to store it during the year, so I'm wondering if one can be rented in the Bay Area.

Re: Fundraiser: School Of Consensual Kink

An excellent question! A tasting is where people can get a taste of a BDSM activity, such as seeing what it's like to get a spanking, to be tied up, etc. It's a way to get a taste of kink in a safe, structured environment
