  • I've actually never seen a gas dryer. I know they exist but they seem to be fairly rare. At least around here.

      I only know one person that has one. They do dry faster, and they are cheaper to operate though.

        That's what I hear. We'll keep the electric one and upgrade the line. That should pretty much equal out the difference in cost, and my preference is for electric too.

          I grew up in a house with a gas drier, and my current house has one, too.

          When I was in high school - early 90s - I worked at Best Buy. We sold a lot of gas driers, and I remember that because they were lighter to load into vehicles than the electric ones.

            • So our garage came with a pegboard on one of the walls, which is nice. But the pegboard has no space behind it, meaning you cannot get any hooks in there. I suppose I can try to use a small 1/4" peg or dowel, but there is very little board depth holding it in, versus the weight of whatever is resting on the peg/dowel, so I don't think that would work very well). Is there another obvious solution I'm missing? (Other than nailing/screwing into the wall behind the pegboard through the holes, which is a possibility, but more of a last resort solution.)

                I can't think of anything terribly simple. I'd probably get more pegboard and go over the top of what is there. I can see myself destroying the existing pegboard trying to get it down. :-)

                  How is it attached to the wall?

                    • I just came home from Menards.

                      2x4-8ft construction stud = $12.09 WT Fuck?!
                      2x3-8ft construction stud = $7.69

                      i was grabbing for the 2x4 until I saw the price. I’m just building some shelves for inside my shed, and don’t need that much strength. Thankfully.

                          I’d take it down and add some spacers behind the pegboard so you have room for the hooks.

                              probably drywall screws. I'm not wild about pegboards but have used them. If it works for you in that location, you might just take it down, screw in some furring strips and screw it back on. Quick job that will allow it to work in that location.

                              I have come to prefer just a sheet of 1/4 inch underlayment or other plywood on the wall and use drywall and trimline screws to hang the tools with. More flexible and you don't have to mess with pegboard hanging hardware. But I don't hang wrenches or heavier tools there, just things like small squares, japanese and smaller saws, protractor, carving and scoring knives, etc.
