    I've never been a real fan of "peel and stick", especially when it comes to durability, particularly with the adhesive. Then again, maybe things have improved with environment specific products. The...

    Yes, it should be fine if put down property. Really tiny wheels for mobility might not be the best choice, but larger ones that are more typical should roll over it just fine. This is purely opinion...

    I haven't studied what's the best practice for seams on the roll-out material, but will have to do that. There may be an appropriate tape product for this...but it has to be suitable for concrete. ...

    Very interesting old tool and something that could be quite useful. Fabrication of a guard for around the belt might be a good idea while you are cleaning things up. I'd probably change to a...

    I'm starting to find this idea actually attractive vs painting/coating for my new shop, both for cost and for installation time. Three rolls of that and I'm done. Literally.

    Even though I'm moving to clamp-together duct for the new shop, given the choice between spiral and snap lock, I'd pick spiral after having used snap lock for many years. It's a better solution all...

    Pat, for most folks, the 3hp machine pretty much covers everything they likely would do, regardless of color/label. Adequate power for common thicker materials is there and most of the time, it will...

    My money would be on the X17 being more than sufficient for what you want to do. I'm likely going one below that for my shop project, honestly.

    I'd pick the one that's already been restored and make any required minor tweaks to it. :)

    Every post frame I've seen has had trusses both over the poles and intermediate on the double top headers that run the length of the building sides. Those are typically 2x10 or 2x12 and of the...

    If I'm not mistaken, post-stressed/tensioned slabs have cables in them that are tightened after the pour is cured. I remember seeing that on an episode of the BuildShow on the 'Tube awhile back on a...

    The way it's done is that sheathing is applied to the horizontal girts before your siding goes on. It's not necessary to build stud walls between the posts. You can sheath with ply, osb,...
