4 Step Minimal Waste Time Saving Laminate/Engineered Wood Installation


How can you have almost zero waste when you install laminate or engineered wood flooring? The laminate flooring salespeople recommend allowing for at least 5% waste. Still, when I installed the flooring from left to right, often I found the right plank was too short and I had to undo the whole row and start all over again. Thus even figuring I will waste 5% of materials (thus money), I can not guarantee I will not also waste time.

In this video, I will show you a very easy simple 4-step process that will not only allow you to save the material (the money) but also the time. In fact, the layout of the whole room can be predicted before the actual installation.

3rd Time Attaching Rearview Mirror– Glue attached to windshield Using 5-minute Eproxy

Just a month ago, I re-attached the rearview mirror (4 years after my first video showing how to re-attach the rearview mirror), but then it fell off again. Certainly last time was a complete failure. This time I spend more time investigating why it failed. I am doing something different to fix this time so that the previous failure would not repeat again. Last time I had two choices:
1. repeat the process of the first fix and see if it works.
2. find the reason it failed and do things differently.
Since the first choice did not work, I am now trying the 2nd this time in this video.

Previous videos of re-attaching the rearview mirror are shown below:

4 Years Later, Attaching Rearview Mirror Again — Glue attached to windshield


4 years after my first video showing how to re-attach the rearview mirror, it fell off again. While I am glad that it lasted 4 years, it tells me that something is not right. I am not sure why it came off, so I will experiment more and share the results with everyone. I have two options:
1. repeat the process and see if it works.
2. find the reason it failed and do things differently.
Since the rearview mirror repair glue/kit is only $2 at Walmart, it is sensible to first try #1. If it does not work, then I will try something different.
