    I saw a video on that system a while back. Havent done a house in a long time (no longer in the biz). It seems completely counter to what the european model of PEX was but I can understand it. My...

    You have to remember though that conventional wisdom with regards to run/tubing size no longer applies if you run PEX the way its suppose to be run. A bigger line is not better when you are home run...

    We always used standard copper stubouts, crimped connection, soldered into holdrite straps but if you dont want the copper for corrosion there are several suppliers of 90 degree tube supports and...

    If anyone buries a shark bite fitting in a wall or a slab or any other concealed in accessible location they need their head examined I dont care what the manufacturer says. All that's between you...

    It works wonders for anything static-y. PVC trim, Azek and the like, if your tooling breaks a chip (a planer does it by default) it lets it fly up the DC and not clog. Strings are only going to be an...

    I have a hard time believing any shelf in a fridge is not tempered or safety glass. The liability of someone getting cut to ribbons when a shelf broke would not be worth it. It would likley take a...

    10-4 on everything. Home runs, no joints anywhere except at terminations thats one of the key advantages PEX in the first place. I have never had a need for an elbow or a tee. I dont even know why...

    Never had a problem but a spray can of static guard is your friend. A light spray on the planer bed and kick on the DC and mist a bit up in around the cutter head and let it run down the DC a bit...

    I would be surprised at a failure as well given normal use and the fact that a fishing net in my assumption would typically see intermittent use, a bound hoop, and likely has some serious varnish....

    This is something I am sure many here are especially tuned to. We spray nearly 100% waterborne finishes in the shop so its a daily issue. Nearly 100% is like 99.999985%. And using waterborne this...

    We all have to do what works for the work we do. My point with II and III is that TB is pretty much screwing the retail consumer with their marketing and people think if original is good, I has to be...

    There is no thinking about that one. Thats plainly obvious. But in a lot of day to day work there is no time/profit in buddhist monk style fitup, grain/board/material selection, highly detailed...

    Unfortunately there is an acronym in the subject line... sorry ;-) They are everywhere and its simply faster and easier than typing out urea formaldehyde to type UF in an adhesive thread. Or some may...

    Seems the only one part option with no Formaldahyde (reasonably speaking) is PU which sucks for the mess. Im running epoxy as well as opposed to UF but I dont know which is worse for mess, epoxy or...

    They all creep for me and with regards to sun/heat just leave any one of them in a car in the sun (even if they are not in the direct sun) for an hour or two and you'll see immediate glueline...

    Not the same machine but we just typically creep up on the trimming and scraping with a couple scrap parts. It pretty fast but looks like your machine doesnt have readouts on the trimming and...

    Promar 200 around here at least is the dog poop of paint. Its whats slathered on condos and rental units by the tanker truck load. It wouldnt surprise me that its no different than home center paint....

    My gosh. 1mm would take forever to cut off with any ROS we have. What are you sanding with? An angle grinder? 15 thou would be a mile to come down starting even with 100 grit through 150. And it...

    Generally in cold climates there would never a meter at the street unless the meter well could be located below the frost line (usually 2' or less). There would only be a service shutoff at the...

    Id agree with you there. If you have to hand pick material youve either got a really bad supplier, or other issues of your own. 5-10% is more than acceptable and the hourly rate to pick through...

    As it pertains to a profit making shop, with everything to me at least, it comes down to what equipment you have at your disposal, what quantity and consistency of work, and even more than that, what...
