    My old Craftsman compressor was anything but tight. It would definitely run all night, if I didn't turn it off.

    Plus, SWMBO would kill me if I put up a shed. So inside it is.

    Still trying to figure out options. None great yet.

    So, I bit the bullet and bought the California Air Tools 10020CAD. I'm going to put an sound meter on it when I get it in place, and compare it with the old Craftsman. Should be interesting.

    Since we resurrected this from the dead, I wanted to chime in and say that I did buy the Felder FB710 with DC Injection Braking. It is a beast, and has been great. No issues at all, works like a...

    An interesting idea, Chris, but I don't think I want to have to dodge columns in the workshop. The entry door is just to the side of the area I am interested in storing lumber, so you would have to...

    I've been stunned at the amount of expansion and contraction with some outside pieces in the Florida sun/rain.

    If you figure out how to prevent wood cupping but still allowing free expansion /...

    I have found that the panel saws in HD and Lowes are broken easily more than half of the time. Not sure how they accomplish that, but I'm always amazed that they are frequently broken.

    Is there a particular system you use to know where each board species is? I can see this getting pretty confusing in a hurry.

    Sorta getting it. Isn't the lumber sliding down /moving laterally when the one side is lowered an issue (and safety hazard)? I guess the sliding could be handled by a vertical member on the...

    Would pressure treated wood fare better in concrete? Or is it still necessary to place them on footer hardware?
