We have some new stuff here at Tashmans this week so everybody should come over and go on a shopping spree!

Some really cool flashlights and tools came in from a company called NEBO.

All of the flashlights above will blind you if you look directly into the light. Ironically people who get blinded usually buy the flashlight.

And we also have a bunch a of amazing succulent plants, perfect for our current drought condition as they do not require a lot of water and don’t wilt in the harsh southern California sun.

The Tashman’s carpentry team recently install this new pre hung and pre finished door from Escon doors.

Mrs Feldman love’s the door which has a heavy duty Emtek mortise lock installed in it as well.

Mortise locks are nice because they have several locking features, are very strong and hard to break.

I like them for all the pretty designs, and finishes available for you to choose.

When you are ordering a pre hung door make sure to check the jamb thickness, swing of door. and the threshold type you need.

We use oak thresholds many time so the wood floors on the inside blend and match.

This door can pre finished so it matches perfectly with the jamb. I recommend touch up and adding additional coats of sealer ever 2-3 years so the door look good. The front door is the first impression to you home. Make sure to keep it looking clean and well painted.

Ladder Safety

26 04 2010

The ladder is a great invention and I don’t think there can be any argument about that.  Before ladders, what did people do?


Stand on each other’s shoulders?

Unfortunately as with any tool, improper use can cause injuries, lawsuits etc.  Our friend next door to Tashman’s climbed a ladder, fell off and died.  He was a professional so believe it can happen to anyone.

Never stand on the top of the ladder.

If the ladder is shaky, have someone brace it at the bottom.

Remember you now have a high center of gravity, so don’t lean out too far.

Never stand on the ladder tray.

Always be sure the ladder is fully open and level.

Extension ladders should always be locked before climbing

The Wrong Way:

Incandescent: The original Thomas Edison invention, they use 3% of the electricity to produce light and the rest of the electricity produces heat. Essentially it is a very small fire.

Compact Flourescent (the spiral bulbs) : A smaller version of the long straight flourescent lights most frequently used in supermarkets, they use about half the electricity to produce the same amount of light as an incandescent. Unfortunately they contain mercury and in a perfect world would be thrown out at a hazardous waste dump.

L.E.D (Light emitting Diode): An old technology redone is our modern age, they can use 4 watts of electricity to produce the same amount of light as an incandescent 60 watt. They also last five times as long as anything else.
