    MDF torsion box with the stainless sheet adhered to the top. I have made this connection with good results using 3m 90 spray adhesive. That is how I would do it at least.

    I have never had a portable work well enough to be worth messing with in my experience. Keep in mind also that an AC does not take in air and put out 70 deg air, rather they take in what temperature...

    Most issues like that are superseded by laws making it impossible for those clauses to be enforceable I would say. Companies put it there knowing that people who fight it will win, but other lazy...

    I just heard steel is at ~$65 a ton here currently. I haven't taken much in myself in a long time, but the idea of just throwing scrap in the trash bugs me. It's usually not too hard to find a half...
