Something new Easi-Bild patterns Fireplace montef adds to charm of the home Everyone wbo believes a house only becomes a home when it has a fireplace, will; be interested in this mantel ^\^liIe designed to add colonial charm to an opening, its real purpose is to eliminate the grills required when prefabri cated fireplace units are in stalled. WhUe I would not think of building a fireplace without a heating unit, we did get pretty tired Jooldng at the cold and warm air heating ducts even thou^ they are hidden behind grills. While this mantel has all the charm and simplicity of colonial design, concealed, hinged panels serve double duty. When the fireplace is in use, the panels are opened. Cold air drawn off the fioor is \^-armed, then flows by gravity through the two upper ducts. Everytime we use the fireplace, we thank the manufacturers of ibis heating unit Some months ago during a bad storm, we had a power failure. Fortunately, we had enough firewood handy to keep the fireplace going and it gave sufficient beat to keep pipes from freezing. The pattern offered below explains how to build this mantel to fit almost any size opening.

STAIN,SHELI.AC ANDAPPLVDECAL TOFROSnr PENCIL MOLOER IS SAAALL SECTION OF SPRINQ In • the past few years, the business of gluing and patching has been revolutionized by epoxy products. Epoxy resin is a sticky syrnp-like chemical. By itself it does nothing, but mix in an activator and it sticks to just about anything and is amazingly tough. Epoxy resins are not new. Industry has used them for years. In recent years, they've comej on to the consumer market in' the form of epoxy glue and epoxy patching kits. Epoxy glue will hold unlike materials as well as similar materials. No water or solvents are used. The material hardens by chemical action of resin and activator (it heats internally) rather than evaporation and, therefore, w i 11 dry even in the absence of air (under water for example). Epoxy glues are tricky to use. Follow the manufacturer's instractions to the letter. Remember that the two parts remain liquid only as long as they are separated. Once mixed they begm to set in as little as 20 minutes. Mix only what you can use in that amount of time. You must mix exactly equal parts of resin and activator. To make this as easy as possible, most epoxy glues are sold with resin and activator packed in separate squeeze tubes. immediately after mixing, apply to both surfaces that are to be glued. Surfaces should be absolutely clean. Be careful of grease in particular. Press the parts together and wipe off the excess that squeezes out of the joint Unlike ordinary glue, pressure clamping is not necessary. Parts should be held just firm­ ly enough so that they do not shift. String, rubber bands, mask- teg tape, spring clothespins, weights or just about anythins will do to immobilize the parts while they dry. If the hold- down material is touching the joint, shield it from the glue with wa.x paper so that it doesn't stick. Since you don't have to clamp, you can make the glue joint thick, and the thicker it is the stronger it will be. Since this is a thermal setting com pound, thickness will not affect drying. There is very little shrinWng with epoxy. Properly made joints have proven in tests to be stronger than the material itself. Yet, edge-to-edge or tip- to-tip jomts are likely to be weak. Drawbacks to usmg epoxies are their price (they are more expensive than other glues), the difficulty of mixbig and using GARAGE ATTIC Need storage space that isn't cluttered?

Avoid spilling any on your skin, it can be an irritant Wash off immediately. Do not smoke or eat while usmg an epoxy so that you won't transfer the material to your mouth. Do not switch the caps on the two tubes. They'll harden and be on permanently.
