i had a bad experience cleaning a glass hanging light once. i took it apart and then couldn’t get it back together because of a defect with the threads.a 12 was just barely enough for me. what i learned was i stick to what I’m really good at or at least wait till i know what I’m doing before offering the service. not saying that you don’t but just offering my thoughts.
That’s good advice. I hadn’t planned on making this an official thing yet, but a customer of mine wants me to do his chandelier next time i do his windows. It’s not a crazy crystal one, just a big light fixture. I wanted to make sure I’m ready for it by next spring.
Hmm… Interesting take, Steve. I was so sure about the stepladder but now i might reconsider. I have a LG already, but i don’t think it’s tall enough. Not sure if i want to buy another though, cause even the smaller one is already so heavy. I would so buy a carbon fiber one if they made it.
It’s the model 17. Love it despite what all the haters say. I think it also looks impressive to the customer when you are nimbly transforming that thing like Optimus Prime. (Although i really do wanna try to get the hang of those stack ladders next season. I just don’t get how people like @Dangerous and @Infinity do it so effortlessly!)
As for the gym… I agree. Fortunately, i have a sweet home gym in my garage. Just got so busy this summer i kinda let myself go (again).
I’m humbled to be mentioned in the same sentence as Dangerous Dave. I’ve got nowhere near the skills he or many of the other veterans have.
The key is plenty of practice. Core strength is a very small part of the equation. It’s mostly about balance and coordination. Think of it like balancing a (rather heavy) broom on end. Keep that top centered and balanced, making slight adjustments to maintain control. You don’t grab the broom handle when it starts to tilt off center, you follow it.
Woe. That’s so logical and yet i completely missed that key point. Instead, i was trying to “fight” when the ladder would begin to tip. (Hurt my shoulder real nice, too…and had a near miss with the family car!) I think this one tip might be what i needed to finally succeed with stack ladders. Thanks, Alex!
