    Sometimes you do what you gotta do: our well pump died the other day (bad low voltage contactor transformer). I used a cheap 1" foam paintbrush with a wooden handle to push the contactor in, and secured it with a length of bailing twine. Cost me under a buck instead of the $150 service call, and we have water. We're just not in the financial position to do it 'right', though I must say that had I listened to my wife and been frugal we certainly WOULD have been. Sigh.

    (Tech info for those of you who have wells: this fills a 2000 gallon high cistern so there are no cycling/overpressure problems, and we turn it on at the circuit breaker box for a 4-6 hours every few days - and I plan to buy a new transformer next week.)

    Doing that and having it fixed on "straight time" will probably be a lot cheaper than having to have an "emergency" service call.

    I'm just curious why you chose to use the term "ghetto style"? In which particular ghetto would you expect to see these contraptions?

    All I want to know is if Foxworthy has seen any of this. Some of you may get into a higher tax bracket.
