    Looking into the wombah.........aint got no pool.


    The roomba got in all the corners, under the fireplace, under the coffee table and end table, and picked up a good load of dust bunnies and dirt. Although I live in the city, my street is dirt so the dust in the house is a constant battle. I have swept that room at least 3 times in the past couple of weeks and the robot did a better job than I could. I suppose if I moved everything and really swept thoroughly, I could get all of it, but . . .

    In the first hour it picked up a lot of silt. 2nd hour not as much. I'll have to see if I can still kick anything up. The water did cloud up very slightly but less than it does when we do it by hand.

    So far very pleased with it. Just the first 2 hours of its use has saved me (or my son) several hours of manual work that most likely would have been less effective.

      Same. Amazon battery replacement after 3 years of 3x per week. It's awesome.

      • Picked these two up. Very smooth writers. I really like Lamy fountain pens. The dark one is the Safari Charcoal and the silver one is the Al Star Graphite. Both are in Extra Fine nibs.

        Anyone else here use a fountain pen? I need to write a lot for my job, and using a FP makes it very enjoyable. You can go down quite a rabbit hole if you get interested in FPs.

          One of the best purchases I ever made. I can change oil without getting under the vehicle in 10 minutes. Drain plug has never been touched on my 2015 Sorento.

          Never thought of using it to flush brake systems though! I'll have to try that!

            Very nice! I have a Lamy that I write with every once in a while. Excellent product for the money. It's fun but could never adjust to writing with a fountain pen.

            I have been using Uni-Ball Vision Elite's for the past few years, hooked a bunch of guys at work on them too.

              Turns out they sell a brake bleeding kit separate for $27 or something ridiculous like that for a couple hoses and plastic connectors. I am going to be grabbing the parts I need from the DIY garage I'm a member at. They have a hand pump with broken bits and pieces so they won't miss it.

                • Some larger city’s have a community garage that lets you come in and use tools and work on your own stuff for a membership fee.

                      Look up Brother Moto, it's mostly 20-25 year olds trying to get 40-50 year old bikes running. I just hang out with people mostly. Use some of their special tools.

                      Message me if you're interested. They are doing a hang out tomorrow with a hot dog popup. I'll be there. It's 5 minutes from where I live.

                      • Ah, a Roomba. Would make a lot of sense for us, having two German Shepherds and hard wood throughout the first floor. Then again, I'm sure all that hair would fry one in no time.

                          I had the same one for 6 years, mainly on wood floors to pick up dog hair. I have rebuilt it and replaced the battery a couple of times.

                            That's where we have it for the cat. It's a dramatic difference from the floor to the first wooden stair step and a good reminder that it's time to clean when you can see the difference. They're very easy to dump/clean and the filters are dirt cheap on Amazon and last 6 mos at least. I also did the Amazon replacement battery at year 4 and it works like a charm. Probably $40 in maint parts over 4 years.

                            • Have you ever seen the hair two German Shepherds can produce? This is honestly only about a 4-day pile between sweepings back in spring. And it goes like this for months.
