I'm from the Kansas City MO area. I am in the IT field and do DIY projects when I can, either because it's interesting or because I want to save $$. My most recent DIY was converting a 7.3 PowerStroke diesel to run waste veggie oil, then started to make biodiesel, after a few years I ran out of time to keep the project. Right now I am doing work on our house and am here to figure a few things out, and be sure I do it correctly.

Clean the ducting in the last six months? 17,000 dryer fires annually!
