I didn't exactly have that that thought through, but I think you could seal that seam a bit more easily than trying to seal a flat joint with your countertop. Grind the concrete down a bit and apply some bonding agent. Round the joint so the water flows away. I think your countertop is sloped away in any case, isn't it?


Foot is doing much better. Thx for asking. I can't do much in the way of athletics, but I'm getting around pretty well.

Thoroseal is cement based and Drylok is latex. I have used Drylok before too, on foundation walls. Good product too. I don't think I would trust it on warm surfaces being latex though.

Russ, if you don't have them, I recommend getting hand seamers..3 & 6 inch. They allow you to tighten up your bends when they intersect, and make adjustments better than a small hand brake. I have an apprenticeship in HVAC, but most of what we did was sheetmetal fabrication..those little tools were very useful to me.

I didn't check the old posts, but I think I recommended practicing on aluminum coil stock, because it's easier to bend for practice pieces.

As for your countertop, any good quality penetrating sealer plus a couple coats of wax should do the trick.

Russell,
I think that you could spot me a week or so, due to the US Mail . I was waiting until I could get a good pic of a ripening cluster . Your tomates look great, by the way. I got a late start for our growing season down here. It has been a while since I have grown my own tomatoes. When I did it was only Marions. They are a great for our climate. I had a rough start with the San Marzono's. Late start, cut worms, blossom end rot and who knows whats next .
They do seem to put on a lot of fruit down here, though. If it were not for the above mentioned, I think that I would have a big crop. Next year, I will get an early start, I've got a plan for the cut worms, and won't have to dissolve half of my wife's calcium supplemants for the "maters" .

For some reason I have lots of fruit but nothing red yet. I have one plant in a large pot on the pool deck and it is growing like a weed but having end rot problems on that plant, all of the others look good but very dense and hard to even get a photo of the fruit. Another week of good weather here, hope to have slices on a Za next weekend. I added ground up egg shells and calcium tabs to the soil and it may be helping.

Not sure if I thanked you Russell for answering the question the other day. Thanks for that. How's the copper project going?

Russell,

We need some pics of the new stuff you've been working on deck and pergola wise. I'm sure it is looking nice. We've had nothing but good weather since October.
