    Both of my large monitors are Dell Ultra-Sharps. The one I'm using as I type this is a 27" attached to my 2019 MBP 15". My 2012 MPBr13 was attached to it previously. In the shop, I recently bought a...

    The Tool Nut
    247 Mahopac Avenue

    One advantage here is that they likely will have "anything" in stock compared to many smaller retailers that carry Festool.

    Most .25 " compression cutters seem to feature a 1" cut length...I actually had the opposite problem than you there...I couldn't readily get one that exceeded 1.25" without going to a larger diameter...

    The breaker protects the wire, not the saw. There's no need to replace the breaker with a smaller one. Since it's a four wire circuit, the L14 or other four wire design is required. Since it's...

    I think the issue is that the OP can't really get to the screw heads because of the mastic that's on top of the cement board. I had the same issue when I did the work I mentioned in my previous...
