When hooking up the cen-tech 60581 charger/starter

I don't think so, It did that on one of my lawn tractor batteries but not on the other lawn tractor or car battery, I suspect something is wrong with the battery.

I need a zero size phillips bit, and a zero size square drive bit.

For the first, I used "Phillips 0 driver bit" in my Google search. That got several links, including https://www.amazon.com/Phillips-Driver-Long-Miniature-Screws/dp/B07NBP3D7K . The second search was "#0 square driver bit". Amazon had a single bit in stock. Ace Hardware has this 2 pack: https://www.acehardware.com/departments/tools/power-tool-accessories/screwdriver-bits/2160976. Both of these are 1" long 1/4" hex shank for use in any quick-change 1/4" bit holder. I hope this helps. Cindy Wells

I have a craftsman driver light #41993. Its

I know this is an old post but noticed there are 385 people that have viewed the post that like me were searching for a fix to their Craftsman 41993 lighted driver. The fix I found resulted in a better light than the original but being a Craftsman purist I also found a way to fix the original as well even though I put it away and use the new fix. I just wanted the original to work again. I'll start with repairing the original. The usual problem with the original is caused by corrosion from leaky batteries that ends up corroding through the metal strip connecting the + and - ends. I tore apart a new freebie led flashlight from Harbor Freight and used the guts to replace the metal strip and spring that was corroded beyond repair on my light. All it took was a little bending and snipping to make it identical to what my Craftsman had. You will notice the guts of the HF light have a nearly identical metal strip with spring attached. I cleaned the 41993 parts thoroughly & reassembled it using the remaining parts and the new metal strip and spring that I fabricated from the Harbor Freight light. It worked like a charm and my light works like it did when it was new. Now for the best part because my upgrade takes this light to a whole new level. Remove the old light and store it in a safe place. Then get another 3 1/2" Mini Flashlight from Harbor Freight item #69052 for free if you have a coupon since this item is often the freebie given away with any other purchase. I have a half dozen lying around myself so I know this to be fact. Remove the small lanyard and circular clip from the light and toss it since you will no longer need it. Pick up one super thin O-ring from a hardware store that will fit over the end of the flashlight and place it over the end of the light with the push button until it rests in the first groove. I can't give you a size since I sifted through several until I found one that fit snug with a little stretching to get it over the end of the light. Then slide the light into the 41993 and work the o-ring into handle with a small jewelers screwdriver as you gently press the light in place. This doesn't take too much pressure unless you chose a thicker o-ring. You don't absolutely have to use an o-ring but I like the professional appearance of the o-ring and the fact that it serves as a moisture barrier. The new replacement light fits so well that it looks like it was made for the 41993. The plus is that it has 9 LED's and illuminates the 41993 like the sun. Trust me that you will never again use the original once you install the new upgrade. Hope this helps another Craftsman tool junkie like me.

Need to know how to read the roof pitch on my

The pitch of the roof is described as the vertical rise of the roof divided by the horizontal span of the roof. The pitch of the roof is known as slope, and this happens to be a tangent function. When pitches are kept below 3.5, they are considered as low pitch, and when the pitch is kept from 3.5 to 7.5, it is considered as medium pitch anything above than 7.5 is considered to be a steep pitch. Depending on your requirement and style of construction you can decide the pitch of your roof. Click on Gotcha Covered Contracting to know more about roofing.
