Re: drain plug?

yes alexander, perfectly horizontal and easy to squeeze underneath. i can
even turn my head while under it without knocking off my glasses or wiping
the dirt off the pan with my nose :>). only difficulty with the beams is
they are oak and weigh a couple of hundred pounds...but they sure don't rock
or move. i didn't bother with side guides as i trust in my wife who guides
me on :>o. btw if anyone is looking for big beams like mine just visit any
rural area. most farmers have these tucked away somewhere. mine were from a
neighbour whose barn was derilect and about to collapse so she sold it to a
barn razer...i helped him and in return got a few beams for free. just for
interest the guy who tears apart the barns selects the finest pieces of hand
hewn oak and chestnut and sends them to a sawmill where they are turned into
fancy mouldings and sold to people in japan.
