      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Sucks, but the best way that I know of is going to be scraping. Most chemicals that will remove the glue will also effect the finish and integrity of the concrete floor itself and you don't want to do that.

TSP and elbow grease may work.

My first question would be what are you going to be putting back down on the floor?

There are a number of ways to get the old adhesive off the floor.

There are a few products that you can use to remove it or you can scrap it off the floor.

You might want to try "dry ice" on the glue.

I know "tilers" some time use it to remove old tiles/glue.

Freezes/brittles the living you know what out of it and it scrapes off. \:\)

where does a guy get that stuff. and i bet its dangerous and alot of money.

I think we just need to redo it with carpet. This way we dont have to get rid of the glue, can just place it over the top

Look up dry ice in the yellow pages. And on your next trip to Canada you'll know where to go as well \:\)

That stuff is the bomb, a little spendy but once you try dry ice you'll want it for every long distance trip.

When we do this comerical we use a grinder/Sander. You can go to a rental place tell them you are looking for a sander to remove the dried up Glue residue that was left behind from pulling the carpet.

See if you can get one that has a vaccum attachment to it. for it will get very dusty in the air.

If you can't get a sander/grinder with a vaccum attachment, then set up fans and blow the air out a door or window.

This will be alot ezier and alot less costly then putting a thin layer of concrete down.

Which most likely will only chip up later as it gets wear and tear on it

Dry ice is compressed gas and comes in various forms. It's not a hazardous material but will burn you bad if not handled with gloves or scoops. It's manufactured @ -109 degrees so it's darn cold \:\)

You will find a manufacturer/retailer of dry ice in Burnsville.

Just west of the mall on (42) about 2-miles @ the Savage/Burnsville line. Gets pretty spendy (over $1 a lb) after it leaves that place to other retailers of it so thats where to go (.50 lb). I can get a good deal on it seeing I'm connected. ;\)

The sander option mentioned might be the more convenient method.

      Well, I have to pay for registration on my boat trailer to run it on the road, and the boat to run it on the lake, why shouldn't wheel houses?  I guess I don't feel bad for the wheel house guys.

      No not yesterday. 2 weeks ago when we had that first cold spell I went out on Baxter, Blue and Long and checked the ice. They were locked up but only had 1-2" inches so didn't venture out too far. Baxter probably was walkable but had open water on the back end so figured I stay off. Last Sunday I went and checked them out after that warm rainy week we had and they had open water, so yesterday I skipped checking them and went farther north. But I did notice most lakes were locked up on the drive up there. Cant wait for the local lakes to get some decent ice!

      Wondering if big sandy is clear enough to spear fish when the ice comes on? Never done it before and would like to give it a try
    • monstermoose78
      Bryan did you check any lakes around me?
    • Bryan P
      Had to scratch the ice fishing itch, so I drove up north to the Mille Lacs lake area and found a smaller lake with 4-5" of ice. Punch a few holes and found some crappies and sunnies. Nothing big but was fun time and a great way to start my ice seaso n! Bring on the ice!  Check out the video: https://youtu.be/BTTv_G07PB8
