    I heat to 71 and cool to 74.

    I'm hoping after the blinds to curtains project that my AC will be happier.

    Is the plastic looking block an abrasive?

    Lol no. Imagine it as an eraser. Except erasing pencil marks, it removes all the wood dust build up from sandpaper. It is rubber and you put it on rotating sandpaper, like a belt sander. It will remove all the wood dust build up and you have a clean piece of sandpaper again!

    This is one of these items you spend $5 on and it lasts 25 years and works great. My block is 25 years old and still has 75 years left. And I have cleaned hundreds of pieces of sandpaper!
    BTW this is a half inch wide finger belt sander. I use it all the time. 18"belt.

    I just picked one up today. Funny you should mention using one.

    I hope it works good on shaping knife handles.

    This little tool is amazing for me. I bought it several years ago for a specific task and never dreamed it would be so versatile. I bought the cheapest one (Wen) and it is great. I did buy an assortment or belts from 40G to 120G. It saves a buttload of time and saves your fingers, hence the name "finger sander."
    For the shop people here:

    Seeing pictures of your basement reminds me of the earth basement I had in Washington. It took me years of fighting the flooding from the annual raining season to stop the water from swamping the furnace and water heater. :annoyed: Oh the memories...:facepalm:

    You might want to look into window tinting as well. Our upstairs bedroom has 3 large western facing windows with a huge vaulted ceiling so it just holds the heat in. I tinted all my upstairs western facing windows and the house felt like it stayed cooler longer. I didn't run the electricity numbers pre and post install so I cant tell with certainty if there was a true improvement so your mileage may vary. Now I have to debate whether or not I want to do a complete attic reinsulating project or not. The winter time is the best time to do this since the attic wont be 30k degrees. Even though I set the AC temp to 71/72 in the summer, it still feels much hotter to me in the house. I had a new trunk installed when I had my new AC unit installed in the attic which is giving me better airflow in the far rooms but it's not perfect yet but man, I don't wanna even know what the cost of reinsulating my attic will be.
