I Want My Case Quarter Back!


Greg taught me this foreign phrase, I am not sure of the origin.  The phrase “case quarter” apparently is referring to a actual quarter.  So if someone says “Can I get a case quarter?” that translates to:  “Hey I have two dimes and a nickel and a need a quarter!  Can you help me out?”  Oh and here is a Pro Tip for anyone that uses this “case quarter” phrase:  if you keep repeating it the other person isn’t all of a sudden going to understand what it means!



I don’t recall installing the wire harness like this……. maybe I did?  What was this person thinking?  If I just get this wire harness out I can…… wait a minute the person wasn’t thinking.  My bad!

Surprisingly everything still worked!

Good Job! Now I Have Chipped Bricks!


All that work for 1 quarter!  Really!  I remember when I tried to remove one of these vaults…..  I had power tools and stuff and I gave up!  I think if I gave the guy a whole day with a hammer and a chisel he couldn’t get it out.

Oh BTW I got the safe from the other car wash after a bulldozer knocked it out.

FragraMatics Vacuum Shampooer Brush


Nobody is going to be stealing your FragraMatics shampooer brush unless they cut the hose.  I actually think this is a little ridiculous.  You have to take out the screw which you really don’t need (There is no way the hose is going anywhere).  Then I guess you have to remove the outside metal piece (second picture).  Then the hose needs to be unscrewed from the nut that it is mounted in.  Oh and that is not fun!

I Blew a Fuse!


My FragraMatics Vacuum blew a fuse and I had to replace it.  It uses a ABC-10BC3 which is a 10amp 250v fuse.

Have I ever mentioned that the FragraMatics Vacuums are a pain to work on?  6 screws to take off the top and they use security screws?   Jim Coleman’s Vacuums only have 1 and no security screw.  I really do like the security screw, but 6?    At least it could be 4 maybe 3?
