    Best toilet seat for the Drake II CST454CEFG

    Terry must have read my mind; I ended up getting a round Kohler wooden slow close. It arrived with one of the mounting screw covers broken and rattling around in the package. It is a good looking seat. I'll just glue down the broken cover and keep my fingers crossed on paint longevity. Gary

    Best toilet seat for the Drake II CST454CEFG

    Thank you Terry. I've been avoiding plastic due to its flex and extra ridges that need cleaning. Maybe it is time that I give-in to the superior material. Gary

    Best toilet seat for the Drake II CST454CEFG

    Thanks Terry. Words of a genuine Wizard. Any suggestions on plastic seats that have low flex and low twist? I could get used to plastic (particularly since it is not cold here) but my complaints about them are flex, extra edges to clean, flexibility, easily scratched. Thanks all for...

    I guess not. This is not the first time that I have a problem that, it seems, nobody else ever had. Thank you at least for listening, fellows.

    Best toilet seat for the Drake II CST454CEFG

    I have a Toto Drake CST743S #11 dated 2012. I have been using a wood Bemis "Easy Clean" seat and lid. The shape and color is a great match BUT!...... I have had to change it a few times and always for the same problem. The so-called easy clean is impossible to clean once any waste touches...

    What makes an LP gas grill "convertable" to natural gas?

    I've done the conversion before with no problems. (LP to NG) Recently I bought a grill that suited me perfectly. I'll include a photo of it. It had an all-aluminum body, thermometer, two burners, (I want indirect cooking for slow cook and the addition of some smoke wood.) The jets were...

    Gas dryer exhaust obstuction

    Well John, I did say that you can imagine the rest of the story. You are imagining a very rational, reasonable consequence. I was far more lucky than that. It was about a 1.5" - 2" pine cone in a 3" exhaust. The drying time was taking longer and the 90º turn was dripping water onto my car...

    A second one, Norm Macdonald

    By the late Norm Macdonald: A moth goes into a podiatrist's office. "What's wrong?" asks the podiatrist. The moth replies: Doc, I hate my career. My marriage is failing. My family is exhausting. My relationships with my children are terrible. Sometimes it's all too much to bear. I don't...
