Hi! I'm sure there are a few more reasons why manhole covers are round, but here are some that I can think of: The round shape means that they can't fall into the manhole (like a square could). A round shape also means that it has a smaller surface area, so less material is needed to make them, making them cheaper to produce. Round manhole covers are also easier to move since they can be rolled on the ground.

The pitch of the roof is described as the vertical rise of the roof divided by the horizontal span of the roof. The pitch of the roof is known as slope, and this happens to be a tangent function. When pitches are kept below 3.5, they are considered as low pitch, and when the pitch is kept from 3.5 to 7.5, it is considered as medium pitch anything above than 7.5 is considered to be a steep pitch. Depending on your requirement and style of construction you can decide the pitch of your roof. Click on Gotcha Covered Contracting to know more about roofing.

It sounds like the ground has settled around the area where the leak is, hence the traveling water. The right way to fix the problem would be to remove the porch, dig up around the basement wall, apply a sealant to the outside of the wall, install weeping tile and re-grade the soil to drain away from the house. Your best bet to begin with may be to try to re-grade the soil so it is sloping away from the house, however this is only a temporary patch, if temperatures get below freezing there is a possibility that moisture in any crack in the wall could cause further cracking and leaks.

This is just generic instructions just to give you an idea of placement and mounting. I am not sure if your vise turns or not and that would be a big factor also. It depends on where you want it, if anything is close that will interfere with the vise or whatever you have in the vise. Depends how thick the spot is where you want to mount it. If the place is not very thick, use bolt and heavy washer on top of the vise and a heavy washer, a lock washer and nut on bottom. In place of the lock washer and nut, you could use locknut. If the bench where you want to mount is too thick for bolts, use at least 2" lag bolts with heavy washers with the lag bolts as big as the vise holes will accept. You will need the vise as close to the edge without it hanging over the edge of the bench. This is so you will be able to open and close the vise without obstruction. If placement of the vise isn't a big deal, the center edge of the bench would be great although I always mount mine on one end of the bench because of better movement of the part in the vise. Goodluck.

Unfortunately you need an expensive scan tool that can read all the other individual modules of a car. The Mercedes Benz cars have many of these and without information, it is very hard to work on.
It sounds like a body module is acting up.

What's your question?

If the battery has been used a lot or has not been kept charged up it likely is shot. A battery that is not used a lot should be kept charged. I keep my battery operated drill on the charger almost all the time. I have two and change them once every two weeks. Several years old and they both work good.
