Stocking Your Garage With the Right Spare Parts

Published by:

When any product breaks down at home, you might spend half a day just driving to the store for the proper parts. From fasteners to entire assemblies, these parts can be smartly stocked in your garage for future use as a solution. Avoid any real emergencies by knowing which items to have on hand at all times. These spare parts are the key to a rapid repair.

Nuts and Bolts

Purchase a box that has dividers across every section. Use these dividers to keep your nuts and bolts organized by size or application. Keep all of the common fasteners, such as Allen-head screws and nails, on hand at all times. Add household items into the box as well. Push pins, T-pins and other small products will always be found when they’re organized in this area.

Household Items

Your garage can also be a hidden area for those household items that are always necessary. Fast-setting glue, duct tape and PVC piping are just a few items that you want to have in one garage corner. When there’s a sale at the local home-improvement store, stock up on clearance items. They aren’t perishable, which makes them perfect storage items when products break around the house. A broken pipe in the kitchen will always have a solution with your well-organized garage.

Recreational Parts

If you have recreational vehicles, including a boat, you’ll need some extra space for parts. A boat lift winch replacement part might be necessary at some point, for instance. You don’t want to wait for a supplier to have this part so keep the basics on hand whenever possible.

Car Essentials

Spare parts for your car are crucial to a well-managed household. Keep oil, coolant, transmission fluid and other products stashed away for a rainy day. When maintenance is necessary, you don’t need to drive back and forth to the auto-supply shop. Stocking parts also allows you to troubleshoot certain problems that might otherwise be expensive with an official mechanic. Extra brake pads and lubricant are other items that should be at the top of your shopping list.

Don’t forget to keep basic hand tools organized at a work bench or within a specialized box too. Keep wrenches, screwdrivers and hammers properly organized so that you know where to find them in an emergency. In the end, you’ll be able to solve your problems without a lot of time lost.

Build a More Efficient Medical Cart

Published by:

When you’ve got someone in your household who constantly require medications and medical attention, it would be wise if you have your own medical cart. If you own a medical cart that doesn’t move effortlessly from one place to another, you may want to buy and install new medical casters. However, to boost efficiency throughout the day, you’ll need proper casters that have specific features.

Caster Options

At most stores, you’ll find swivelling, total locking, rigid, and directional locking casters. If you fully understand how the cart will be used in the environment, the process of selecting ideal casters won’t be a hassle. This is why you must consider:

  • The cart’s weight
  • The thresholds
  • Your traveling speed

If you’ll use the cart frequently in locations that have long hallways, consider buying ridge casters since they always move in a straight line. Swivel casters work best in cluttered spaces because the wheels roll around obstacles with ease. Directional lock casters function like rigid and swivel casters. When the locks aren’t engaged, the wheels swivel on the floor effortlessly. Casters that have the ability to completely lock are often used in heavy traffic environments because a strong and reliable brake is found on each wheel.

Caster Materials

Soft caster wheels can absorb shock very well, so they are usually placed on carts that are used in busy environments. Because these tires have cushioning, they make carts travel more quietly down hallways.

Hard wheels are worth buying because the material rolls easier on various surfaces in medical facilities. However, since these tires are tough and highly durable, they are a bit noisy.

Flat casters produce less friction since the surfaces are flat. Since the wheels aren’t round, the process of maneuvering them can be a difficult task in some situations.

Crown casters should be considered if you need wheels that provide full contact with the floor. Thanks to the unique design, crown wheel casters boost maneuverability dramatically after they are placed on large or small carts.

By installing better casters on a typical cart, productivity will increase because the wheels will glide on the floor with ease. If you need enhanced maneuverability, purchase a new cart that has wider handles.

It’s been a while

Published by:

It has been almost a year since I have last posted something here. I’ve been very busy with a lot of things – from my apps to my numerous, time-consuming mommy duties. Anyhow, I will try to revive this blog… somehow.

So what’s up with me lately? My Tres Marias – Yana (my eldest), and Ysha and Yza (my twins) are all in school now. The twins are in Kindergarten I and Yana’s in Grade 1 (She has skipped Kinder II). All of which are trying to cope up with their studies. Yana is still trying to adjust since she skipped ‘Prep’ and there are some new learning concepts and teaching techniques she’s not very accustomed to just yet. Yza and Ysha still have speech problems – but they are ‘talking better’. They took an exam prior to being accepted in school and after the assessment, the school administrator said they can skip the Nursery level. They know more words now, they just have trouble mixing-and-matching them up. Despite all the adjustments, I think all three are doing just fine in school. Biboy, on the other hand, is growing up so fast, running around the house all day and doing all sorts of stuff – and he also keeps me up at night. He has started talking – a bit. Generally, all my kids are doing well.

So what else? Ah. We have no car. We sold the black Honda Jazz last May and we’re carless now – doing a lot of commuting every now and then. As for my apps, I haven’t launched a new app for months now. I really need to start working and finish a few apps this month, or early the next. Otherwise, I will have to rush things and I won’t be able to prepare for my other endeavour – my other endeavour which I have decided not to discuss not until I’m done with it. If I fail at it, I won’t discuss it at all. Ahaha.

So that’s all for now. I hope I can blog more soon and come up with another tips-type article. Will be posting a more relevant article soon – I hope!

Money Matters

Press Release : Richard Yap – Careful with his family’s future

Published by:

Actor/singer Richard Yap is very careful when it comes to securing his family’s future. He carefully selects the savings and investment vehicles where he puts his hard-earned money.

“The future is uncertain,” said Richard, a father of two children. “You need to grow your savings and invest to maximize your money’s earnings.”

He stressed that there is no better time than today to plan for the future, so that Filipinos not only save more but also ensure that they can build up their savings to provide for their loved ones’ needs.

For his financial planning, Richard cited Manulife Philippines as a partner to help him invest and secure his family’s future. He has been a long-standing client before showbiz beckoned over two years ago.

Off-cam, Richard is an astute businessman. He co-owns a pet grooming and wellness salon in Paranaque City. He and his associates own a Chinese restaurant in Quezon City and are planning to add a new branch soon. Besides this, Richard is preparing to open a showroom for engineered and hardwood flooring and wooden products for residential and commercial needs. He is hoping to accomplish these goals before the year ends.

As a loyal Manulife Philippines policyholder for two decades now, the multifaceted Richard Yap disclosed that he is very satisfied with his financial services provider of choice.

“Through the years, the Manulife advisers I have dealt with are professional and accommodating. My insurance adviser has been highly knowledgeable about the policies I have with Manulife,” Richard said. “It is important to me that my insurance adviser can effectively explain how I can make my investments grow. It also helps that my insurance adviser is very accessible, so she can help make things easy and convenient for me in dealing with Manulife.”
