    I was going to raise the same question that Jamie did. Distance of gun from surface is pretty critical for almost all spraying, and too far can certainly induce orange peel.

    I would have bought it too, even though I don't really need it, but somehow missed it yesterday.

    There's always a way to do it. I'd run conduit. Glue it up with two long sweep elbows. Take a stone out of the foundation for access, or even cut one. Sometimes you have to go around your elbow,...

    I'll take them. PM me how you want payment-doesn't matter a bit to me. zip code 27842

    I don't need the fixture-have adapters for a buffer.

    I right clicked the images, and chose "search Google for image". The closest thing I found was Mockernut Hickory, but some had the same leaves, and some different.

    Then I searched for "Pignut...

    Since the view count continues to climb, in this thread, maybe someone will take up my advice on starting with a Laser. I still have two of them. One was the boat I started racing in the 1970's. ...

    I trimmed out houses I built, with a Langdon-Acme (no plastic parts) for two and a half decades before anyone made a power miter saw I liked. I still have that miter box, that I bought new, and it...

    I have some that are decades old, made from Baltic Birch plywood, with the wear edges hardened with epoxy. I made them before I ever saw a top bearing pattern bit, so they're made for guide bushings.

    The other high-probability cause could be a piece of trash, or insect. I keep little covers on all of my air tool inlets after getting a dirt dauber in one of them. It's little effort to pull the...

    Firing seal. I've never been in a Dewalt, but you can probably find a youtube video for the repair. Usually, firing valves/seals can be found on ebay, with free shipping.

    I have a tapered "punch", and do the dimpling in the hydraulic press. I'm sure you could do it by hammering, on a soft piece of wood, but they wouldn't be shaped perfectly. I'll see if I can find a...

    I would loan you one, if you weren't on the opposite side of the country.

    I have way too much small equipment to worry about draining it every use, and I certainly don't want to run one dry. I do use only non-ethanol gas though, so every piece is ready to go when it's...

    It's going to get beaten to a mush, so don't buy one for that job. Usually, just a Hickory limb with the handle whittled down with a hatchet, after sawing around the base of the head.

    A couple of Oxygen tanks ago, I got one that had U.S. Navy stamped in it. I didn't ask any questions, but do get some with obvious, strange histories. I never asked what they do with the little...

    I had an 018, that ran great after 21 years. The reason I have the 180 is that a friend borrowed the 018. His method of locking his garage was parking a vehicle against the out-swinging doors. ...

    I have only ever installed two of those, on my Parents' house double Mahogany entrance doors. I just used a circular saw, and chisel.

    That was a few decades ago. I've forgotten the details, but...

    I remembered a picture of the 180, next to the 21 year old 036, and older 066. I don't know of another 8 pound saw I'd replace it with.

    Funny, I posted my earlier post while I was home for lunch. I was moving some trees that I had dropped a while back.

    I took the 180 to buck up this 15" Red Oak, and took this picture. It, of...

    You turned a utilitarian beast into a pleasant, fine looking piece of art!

    We have some Walnut furniture that looks, and is made similar to what that was to start with. It was left to us by an...

    Yeah, the pro saws that size are for in tree work. My "big" saws are a little newer than yours- 036, and 066. My small saw is a 180. It does come with the easy start, and built in chain...

    Here was the inspiration for that balustrade. The Hope Plantation, built in 1805. There were a couple of the original sections of the second floor balustrade left.

    I have about a hundred pounds of hand forged, wrought iron nails the right size, that we took out of the 150 year old Cypress shingle roof we found under a layer of tin, on that house. I held each...
