  • 9 ways guys can impress a girl with his car

    Here we share with you 9 ways guys can impress a girl with his car. This is something every man should know #MidasManCave Cars and women may be a guy’s two favorite things, but how well do they mix? How can a guy impress a girl with his car? For starters, I’m always impressed when a guy HAS a car… and when a repo man’s not after it… that’s a good place to start! But there are more… here are 9 ways a guy can impress a girl with his car, thus combining his two favorite things: cars and women. IT’S CLEAN Fellas, it doesn’t matter if you have the coolest car on the face of the planet — if it’s dirty, you’re not going to impress a girl with your car. When we girls see a messy car, we automatically assume, fair or not, that the guy inside, and his life, are also messy. TWO WORDS: HEATED SEATS Is there anything worse than sliding onto a cold leather seat in the middle of winter, especially if you’re wearing a little black dress? Nope. That’s why a guy can really impress his woman by having heated seats. I know they come standard on most models now, but they still wow me. NICE WHEELS While most guys think women may not notice these things, we do. Tires and wheels are important! We girls may not like the over-the-top wheels (like spinners, yuck!) but we do like sharp-looking wheels… especially when they’re not covered in grim brake dust (see item 1). GOOD SOUND SYSTEM We girls absolutely do NOT want our ears drums to suffer while riding in your car, but we also want to enjoy music while we’re driving with you. A good sound system is a must, then. Just use restraint and remember that if it’s too loud or too bass-y, we won’t come back for a second ride. LOTS OF POWER You already know this, guys: power is sexy. So we like a car with lots of power, and we love the low rumble of a muscle car, new or vintage. IT’S ECO-FRIENDLY By the same token, some of us might like guys who drive eco-friendly cars. As a greener (hippy chick) myself, I think highly of a guy who drives a Prius or Volt. Some girls might not think it’s sexy, but I sure do! HE KNOWS HOW TO MAINTAIN IT Guys, there’s nothing less sexy than a man who can’t tell what’s wrong with his…

  • 10 Circular Saw tips and tricks

    A circular saw is no toy, but after reading these 10 circular saw tips and tricks, you would be more confident is using one #Powertool For all your tool needs to and see us at Randburg Midas. Most novice do-it-yourselfers feel perfectly comfortable using an electric drill or jigsaw, but nearly all of them are hesitant to pick up a portable circular saw. And that’s not surprising when you consider that drills and jigsaws are relatively safe, quiet and easy to control. A portable circular saw, on the other hand, is a powerful, noisy, sawdust-spewing brute that can inflict serious injury if it’s used improperly—it’s on our list of the 5 Most Dangerous Tools. However, to improve your DIY skills and advance the size and scope of your weekend projects, it’s important to learn to cut with a circular saw. Here are 10 tips to help you cut safely and more confidently. Reminder: Wear eye protection when using any power tool. Inspect the Saw Before each use, run a quick safety check on the saw. Be sure the lower blade guard retracts smoothly and snaps back when released. Check the blade for chipped or broken teeth; replace the blade if you find any damage. On corded saws, inspect the power cord for cracks. If using a cordless saw, make sure the battery is fully charged. Remember to unplug the cord or remove the battery before loosening, tightening, or changing the blade. Check the Blade The speed and quality of the cut depends on the condition of the saw blade. Never cut with a dull, rusty, or damaged blade. I recommend using a thin-kerf carbide-tipped combination blade, which can be used for crosscuts and rip cuts in solid wood and plywood. With the saw unplugged or the battery removed, adjust the saw’s depth of cut so the blade extends no more than 1/4 in. past the board’s edge. Circular saws aren’t just woodcutting tools. When fitted with the proper blade, the saw can also saw through various types of metal, and through masonry such as brick, stone and concrete. Find the Proper Saw Position There’s no hard-and-fast rule regarding which direction to make the cut, but whenever possible position the saw with its motor facing toward the larger section of board that isn’t falling away when cut. That way, the saw’s base plate, or shoe, will be fully supported throughout the cut…
