I think McMaster-Carr probably have one of the finest, most useful web sites ever. It's pretty impressive.

I've never ordered anything from them. I just like visiting their web site and exploring. It's better organized than many hardware stores I've been to. What I really love though, is that when I'm doing Architectural details and don't know the size of a fastener, or some other thing, I can go to their site and find it easily.

This is what i have accomplished this morning, made my template last night, transrered it to plywood, rough cut with circular saw, and fine tune with sawsall/ jigsaw. I am trying to look back in forum for types of epoxy paint? I thought about using leftover rustolium garage floor epoxy paint? don't know if it will stick on wood? Sherwin Williams tried to sell me a $450.00 marine epoxy paint, that was only 2 gallons . Part A was $225.00 and part B was another $225.00. I asked the girl if it came with 2 painters to paint it on, she just gave me this blank stare. I'm sure it was an excellent product, but I told her I'm on a budget. if anybody has an epoxy paint that they used, and it worked, let me know!

Painted the plywood with ppg epoxy paint. Self priming, equal parts A and B, with 10% thinner for first coat. Second coat is just equal parts A and B , with no thinner. Cost me $148.00, with gallon thinner. Works very nice

I think that's a small price to pay to help prevent water from doing a number on the new wood subfloor.

tractor supply

found the correct self drilling screws at tractor supply, just as good as McMaster carr, but fraction of price.
