My neighbor couldn't find any Breakfree CLP. Or any other cleaner/lubes at walmart. So i told him about using synthetic motor oil for an oil. And i explained what Ed's red is. And i gave him a baby food jar of it to try. I never thought this latest panic buy situation would effect cleaners and lubes.

Lumber prices are threw the roof. I was paying $3.15 for a 8’stud in March and now they are $6.45. 1/2”, plywood was $17.56 and is now $34.65. The house I’m building should have been $25K For framing lumber give or take a grand. The bill came last week, $43K! Some roofing and siding is unavailable. Deck lumber and composite decking, pressure treated lumber is almost impossible to get.

I know the prices are going up, and we just received word that PVC pipe and fittings are going to go up as well.

I've been hearing the same thing around here especially when it comes to pressure treated decking material.

Got plenty of gun cleaning stuff but at this rate i better stock up on a few things when i go shopping this weekend. Maybe several cans of coffee and pepperoncini's. I would really hate to get a felony rap over things like that.
