That's the problem. It only takes one supplier to be out of stock of one part, and the washers can't be assembled and sold......It's happening a lot with a lot of different items due to China being shut down for a period of time, then Italy being shut down for a period of time, then U.S........Doesn't help that a lot of these manufacturers went to Just in Time inventory......one hiccup and they're assembly line is shut down.

Hey, that's Jimmy you're talking about. Don't insult him like that. Be nice!


You just can't help yourself, can you?

WHAT DID I TELL YOU?

What did I say to you on the morning on 7/31? And what did you say to me in response? And here I see you defying my directive, and when I look at that other thread, I see you still posting in it.

You know what I asked you to do and you know you're not doing it.

First thing- you are hereby directed to never again address jimmy or post in any thread he creates or make comments about him to any other forum member. Do not ever again mention his name or even allude to him in the vaguest of terms.

Lastly- to let you know I am serious, you can spend the next seven days on Moderated Status, and don't you ever again defy my directives in this forum.

V-Tail, I'm removing your moderated status. I took a second look at the time stamps and you made your comment before my directive. My apologies.

Jimmy, why did you bring this up three days after I addressed this? In doing so, you helped me make a mistake in disciplining a member who hadn't defied me as I was led to believe. It's my mistake, but you helped me along. Be cool. Leave it alone. If you have a problem with anyone, use the report-this-post function, just as I've asked others to do.

Thanks to Excam_Man for pointing this out.

Sorry, I didn't notice the time stamp either when I saw it.

Just make sure you remember what I said- no more bickering in the open forum. If you have a problem, use the reporting tool to contact me.

It seems as if lumber is in short supply, at least in my area.

I want to build a nice potting bench so I don't need a lot of wood, but a trip to the 2 big box stores that sell lumber reveals a lot of empty space. Much of what's left is twisted, bent, warped, cracked, just undesirable.

I've managed to get enough of decent enough lumber for my needs but it took visiting several stores to get it.

For the first time ever, the pH readings around my tomatoes and peppers are high instead of low. I’m also getting some BER in my roma tomatoes. Easy fix, just do a gypsum slurry instead of a lime slurry and it’ll cure both.

Amazon wants nearly 3x normal price for gypsum. Ace Hardware, Lowe’s, Home Depot, a fancy mom and Pop Garden Center are all out. I stopped at this awful chain nursery (infamous for horrible service and nobody speaking English) and I surprisingly found it at a near normal price. It shouldn’t be this hard to get gypsum.

You know I hear people say don't buy products from China. Great. But lets say I want a widget. Try to find one that isn't made in China. For that matter try to find one period.

My latest on this subject is gun related, so I should have known better?

I noticed the aluminum hand guard on my CMMG PCC was heating up a lot while shooting it, to the point of having to wear a glove. The hand guard is not a standard one, so while commenting on it to my local gun pusher, er shop, he said why not just put mlok rail covers on it? Genius, except you can't find mlok rail covers anywhere, for any price. Ammo, I get. Even handguns and rifles. But accessories like this??

We have a bunch of tomatoes to can. Canning lids are usually difficult to find this time of year, so last year I told my wife to wait till dec or jan and buy a ton. She didn't do it. Now they're not just difficult to find....they're impossible. Stores just don't have them, and amazon is selling them for $1/lid!!! Eek Thankfully some friends and family hooked us up and we got the canning done... but its getting hard to predict what items are going to be unobtanium next week or next month around here.

Trying to buy disinfectant spray for the kitchen. Hard to find on prime. One comment caught my eye: of the 1000 things listed that the spray kills, some idiot complaining that COVID is not listed. Never mind that 99% of the things killed are probably more robust than COVID. Or that the label was probably written before COVID. Or that the COVID is considered relatively fragile outside of a host. My head hurts with all the idiocy around me.

I use Hardy cloth gloves with the latex coating on the palms and fingers while at work. It makes handling packages much easier. But the local Harbor Freight has been out of stock since the flu crisis hit. I don't even understand why, since they're cloth gloves! They're not going to do squat to protect you from the virus.

I had to order them from Amazon at four times the cost.

All you need is bleach and water in a spray bottle. I think it’s 1/3 cup bleach to 1 gallon of water.

Seriously, you don’t need all this store bought crap.

According to my friend who's a house builder, finishing materials are getting to be in short supply, including stuff like fixtures (sinks, faucets, light sconces, towel bars, etc.), interior finishing materials like tile and flooring, as well as exterior finishing materials like fencing and gutters.

If you don't have your materials already, I'd be sure to snag them now, even if you won't need them for a little while.


We had to get in the queue for a dishwasher when ours died this summer. Everything we were looking at in mid-level Bosch and comparable was hard to find. We waited weeks on backorder with Lowes when my wife got tired of waiting and lucked out at a Best Buy warehouse. It was a rare find, none in store and we had to drive almost an hour each way to get it. They're still out of stock in places locally.

Bottom line if I needed appliances I would be buying them ahead of time if I could.

If you need canning supplies, ULine has them. Legit stuff, not the Chinese crap that half of the Amazon listings have. Wife ordered Sunday of last week and got her stuff Wednesday.
