High Point Enterprise (Newspaper) - September 12, 1976, High Point, North Carolina 12c High Point Enterprise sunday september 12, 1976 House of the week Home features modern exterior by Andy Lang i of new features q i plan to build a couple of Long Wood benches for our Patio. I d like to make benches that have 2 x 4s going the Long Way of the Bench a the kind that have openings Between the 2 by 4s so that the rain can go through what i d like to know is How to space the Wood to get them even and neat. A a the trick is to build the Frame of the Bench seat first after it has been completed. Insert the 2 x 4s inside the Frame. Space them properly by placing Quarter Inch slats Between them at both ends of the Frame. After the 2 by 4s have been nailed to the Frame at the ends remove the Quarter Inch slats All the spaces then will be equal q a i am constantly confused by the terms terrazzo Ceramic tile Terra Cotta and slate in reference to flooring materials can you straighten it out for me1 a a terrazzo is made mostly from Marble chips imbedded in Cement which is ground and polished to a smooth finish Ceramic tile is baked Clay which can be either glazed or unglazed. Terra Cotta is hard baked Clay tile in Reddish or red Vellow colors the Brick Type used for flooring is usually glazed slate is a dense Fine grained Rock produced by compression of clays and Shales. Q a we stored a Large bag of Portland Cement in our garage when i checked it the other Day there were a lot of lumps in it can the Cement still be used a a if the remainder of the Cement is Loose it probably can still be used As for the lumps if they can be readily pulverized Between the thumb and forefinger the Cement will be workable. If it requires a lot of pressure to break them throw them away. Q. A i have read about Nail guns. Can they be used to attack 4x8 plywood panels0 a. A yes the nails should be placed 8 inches apart around All edges it the panels and 12 inches apart on the intermediate supports Start the nailing from one Edge of the panel and work across to the other Edge or you can Start at the Center and work toward the edges. The main thing to remember is not to Nail the intermediate supports if you do that the panel May buckle. Follow carefully the instructions on the use of the Nail gun they will show you How to handle the tool so that the nails will countersink automatically. Q a How Clin i Tell whether the pipes in an old House we have been looking at Are really copper0 the owner says they Are. But my husband says they May have been painted to resemble Copper a a a use a Magnet it will be attracted loan Iron or steel pipe. But not to Copper or Bronze. Q i understand that it is possible to make flagstones for a Walkway without buying he read made stones can you Tell me How this is done % a a what you actually will be making Are Concrete stones that can be used for walking on dig to about 4 inches the size and shape of the Stone depends on your preference but make sure the excavation is level. Pour in a Concrete mix and level it off with a wooden float. Hepcat this operation As Many tunes As necessary to Complete the Walkway there s no need to try to make All the stones the same size in fact variations will make the Walkway More interesting alter about five or six hours wet Down each Stone. Do this a couple of times u Day for several Days this curing process will keep the Concrete from drying out too quickly. For either of Andy Lang s helpful booklets.

Lot. Hunter Woods by Vivian Brown a new features sometimes it is the Little chores that drive us to distraction especially when we be let the jobs lag during the vacation season Copper carving boards tile Marble plastic Wood floors need care. Short cuts May be taken by giving these things More frequent care which May seem a bore but in the Long run it will pay off if you let a Copper Hood in the Kitchen get very tarnished and Greasy it becomes a super cleaning Job. But if it is washed regularly and shined by Andy Lang a new features since an Extension ladder is a necessity when doing any work on the upper part of the outside of your House it is Well to learn How to use it properly. But any information on usage should be prefaced wit the warning that some persons simply done to belong on High ladders and should stay away from them no matter How tempted they Are to prove they can conquer their fears or disabilities or Ages. An Extension ladder is really two ladders with the sections fitted together so that one part can be moved separately to attain the desired height. It takes a Little practice to get the Knack of raising and lowering the top Section but this testing period can not be undertaken until the ladder has been raised into position a Man Euver which requires a Little practice of its own. Begin by placing the ladder on the ground at right angles to the House with the Bottom end against the foundation grasp the ladders top rung and raise it to about shoulder height now walk towards the House changing the position of your hands on the rungs As you move Forward As you do this the ladder will be moving higher into the air. Be certain always that you have a tight grip on the next rung of the ladder As you remove the other hand from the previous rung when the ladder has reached a vertical position rest the top against the House now. Gently and carefully move the foot of the ladder away from of the ladder away from the House Little by Little. Row far9 about one fourth the height of the ladder. Thus with a 20-foot ladder the feet should be about 5 feet from the House. This distance ratio assures the ladder will remain stable while someone is on it. Once you get the hang of ladder placement practice How to raise the ladder to its desired height this should be done when the ladder is in a vertical position but leaning slightly toward the House at the top the top Section will move upwards when the rope attached to it is pulled Down. Once you get the proper height lock the top Section in place with the special Hooks or other gadgets that Are attached to the ladder and Are clearly visible in setting the ladder to the right height remember that the Bottom and top sections should overlap at least 2 feet instructions on the ladder will Tell you How much. When you want to move the ladder a few feet to one Side move the top slightly then the Bottom. Do this Little by Little and with a firm grasp on the ladder Don t try to cover ail the territory in a single of movement. Be sure the feet of the ladder Are resting on solid ground before you do any climbing most come with some kind of attachments to the feet to prevent slipping this is especially important when using a Metal ladder. Always work on areas you can reach easily without stretching. And forget about the whole thing if it s a Windy Day. Thirty five do it yourself problems Are tackled in Andy Lang s handbook a practical Home repairs Quot available by sending it to this newspaper at Box 5, Teaneck n. J. 07666 it s a fact that Economy is never really fashionable with a soft cloth it is a Small chore a neglected Hood must be scrubbed with soap and water and dried before it is polished non tarnish Copper cleaners will keep a Hood clean for a Long time and Are great time savers if there is a Large expanse of Metal Wood cutting boards May Warp to the dismay of Many housewives that May be controlled by turning the Board every once in a while in fact the underside should be scrubbed dried and lightly oiled cooking Oil has been tried successfully. It just happened to be at hand and it worked of the Board warps a bit scrub the underside Well let it dry a if you can put it outdoors All the better a and then apply a Little Oil if it is mildewed in spots it May require a Light sanding before you apply Oil then it should be reversed for use sometimes a Board will get beyond the turnover stage with Many mildewed stains and you will want to use Only one Side of it. Even then the underside must always be kept clean no matter How careful you Are liquid and specks of food May be found under the Board so it should be tilted each Day and the area underneath wiped with a dry cloth wiping it with a wet cloth will merely increase the chances of mildew unless it is dried thoroughly each time As for Ceramic tile on counter tops you May need to use an abrasive cleaning powder some people clean the Grout lines with a Toothbrush making a paste of the cleaner. A mixture of chlorinated bleach and a Little water can be used on the Grout and blotted quickly one woman advises. There Are special tile cleaners in paint stores and these work Well although some women use Little soap pads As they do on bathroom tiles advice on the care of Clear plastic May be obtained from Craft shops where the material is carried. It has been said that acrylics respond Well to automobile polish which is rubbed on with a soft cloth. Scratches can be smoothed with a Little buffing tool and pumice a which Are available in the Craft shops Many methods Are used for cleaning Marble. Some work. Some done to. Knowing what made the stains makes the Job easier. Light stains and rings May be removed with a mixture of Hydrogen peroxide and ammonia which should then be removed with Clear water advise experts at the Weiman co., makers of Marble polish they claim Fine scratches on Marble May be sanded lightly and the entire surface re polished whenever necessary with Putty powder applied on a Damp cloth by hand or with an electric polisher More serious stains should be treated with a poultice made of White blotting paper paper napkins or cleansing tissues which May be soaked in the solution that is needed for the particular stain organic stains a , Coffee soft drinks that have no citric acid wet bark and Flowers a should have a poultice of the peroxide and ammonia Oil stains a butter milk Cream hand Cream modelling Clay and the like a should be wiped with a cloth dampened with ammonia and a poultice of equal parts of amyl acetate and acetone and then a poultice of the Hydrogen peroxide and ammonia Ive on the Shady Side of the Street Check with us before you buy hihi06s a Dye nets a lot bogs a Canvas bags a a siding a building repairs a camper awnings a furniture pads a additions or Bein i.
