    In the case of the swinging shelf, if the things on it are heavy it will prefer to be in the “down” position, and it’s going to take considerable effort to push it back up.

    “Screen Painter makes this summer chore a pleasure” – Must be some crazy fumes from that that make painting a ‘pleasure’.

    #2 – So many unanswered questions…..

    #4 – Brilliant! I’d buy one in a second.
