I have three of the plastic chairs from the 70's. The Texas heat has gotten to them. The slats are popping on some of them when you sit down. Any ideas on how to repair these? I have
tried a plastic epoxy and it did fine at first and then would not hold, thought about jb weld? Any ideas would be great. Thanks.

Just had another flashback about plastic and fixes. The door handle on my car broke in the
extreme cold weather we had a couple of years ago. (Since then I've learned that most car parts - even the chrome ones - are plastic) Cost for a replacement plastic handle was $60+ plus changing it out. While I thought of ordering one from the dealer, I used some Gorilla glue (just a small dab) on the broken handle. 1 1/2 years later and the handle is still working fine. So - try some Gorilla glue. Cheap, easy, and it will only take a short time to find out if this will provide the fix you need. (Then get covers made for future protection from the elements)
When remodeling our 1910 Georgia home I uncovered a transom window that had been covered over in the wall. I removed the window, and after safe guarding for a few years, finally refinished to create a antique picture frame for photos of my ancestors.
In a reply on another post, you can check out heatandcool.com for great prices and a variety
of HVAC units. If you find a unit and like the price, you can then contact a HVAC contractor for pricing to install (and warranty the work) or as I have done, check places like craigslist for competent installers. When looking for an installer be sure to ask for references (and verify them) and above all - get a written bid and warranty for the installation.

Another thing that is typical for pine trees (that causes death) is shear age. Pine trees have
a primary tap root that grow downward until they hit rock. When that happens the tree dies - nothing can be done at that point. (At least that is what I was told when I had pine trees in Georgia die unexpectedly.)
