About Steel City

This website is first and foremost about my love for the city of big shoulders, Pittsburg and where I have called home for the past 10 years.  Having grown up in NYC, when I moved to Pittsburg, it was a bit of a change, but I really fell in love with the city of Pittsburg.  In my free time, I do enjoy going ghost hunting and have spent well over $1000 in equipment alone.  You may find it a bit odd or strange, but I have really fallen in love with the paranormal and hope to share some of my knowledge with the readers here.

Besides ghost hunting, I am also in the process of fixing up my older home, which includes a lot of light construction and remodeling.  Of course, I couldn’t do it alone, luckily my buddies Mark and Jake do pitch in and lend a hand if I supply a case of beer.  So I hope to share some of the products I am using around the home that I find valuable and have made the job easier.

For example, I recently picked up one of these ratcheting screwdrivers, that have made the job of removing doors, kitchen cabinets so much easier.  While a lot of people claim you can get into tight places with a power drill or that it works as good as a regular screwdriver, I haven’t found that to be the case.  Not to mention that with stubborn screws, which remodeling an older home, I have plenty of, I really found that the power drill didn’t work too well.  In fact most of the time I just ended up stripping the screw, because I couldn’t get to much torque on the screw head or simply couldn’t get the electric drill/screwdriver into position.

That said, with the ratcheting screwdriver, it feels almost as quick as using an electric drill or screwdriver, provides plenty of torque and makes the job go that much quicker.  Seriously, I am not sure how I went through life without one of these, they are that great!
