Sliding door roller fix

Share

First chore on my list today and maybe the only one depending on how it goes is to fix the sliding door rollers. Good old Popular Mechanics to the rescue for some handy advice – my fix it job looked nothing like theirs ha ha. tacogirl version… ¬† Step 1 take screen door off –¬† play around with rollers and see just how rusted it all is. Step 2 no wd40 on hand – sprayed some hydrogen peroxide on it to loosen things up. Step 3 put wd40 on shopping list – used a q-tip with olive oil on it to lube rollers [coconut oil my preferred choice for stuff like that but again it’s on shopping list]. tacoboy said door definitely slides easier now.

Pain in the butt when you set out to do stuff only to realize that you do not have everything on hand you need to complete the task – like Paul starting to brown the ribs and then me realizing there was no barbecue sauce for stacking them in the crock pot.
