    I really like that idea, Glenn. I'm starting to at least think a little (very little) about how I want to handle my hand-tools (pardon the expression) in the new shop. Historically, I've kept most...

    I have not changed my cut depth on the FS-350 since the day I bought it. That works for me, but maybe not for others. It really comes down to what one does. Most of my use for the jointer is for...

    I'm very pleased with the SuperMax 19-38 I picked up "barely used" a couple of years ago. I got lucky with that purchase as this is the kind of tool that I also would prefer to buy new because they...

    I agree with Prashun...same process as the clears with maybe a little more viscosity as can be expected with any product that has a bunch of pigments in it. You just need to zero in your gun. I use...

    All of my tow vehicles have had backup cameras since 2005, and that makes hooking up a trailer a "one shot" thing almost every time unless there is extremely unfavorable sun glare. Since you seem to...

    Looks like that trailer is from the era when Thule was also involved with Brenderup (EURO) horse trailers. Same floor design and yes, it was a plywood product. It's hard to source material in the US...

    Concrete for driveways isn't a popular choice around here for whatever reason. Asphalt paving and various types of gravel are what you see; the latter is more prevalent outside of town. More and more...

    A cordless pinner is an interesting thing, but given how I use my pin nailer, often in tight spaces, the "heftier" size of a cordless unit might make it less usable. It really comes down to what you...

    Larry, you make a good point about the cost of blast gates and it's certainly reasonable to expect them to be relatively leak free. But the nature of blast gates and how they operate does make it...

    If they are typical tee-head brad nails, they should be no issue. Do keep in mind that some guns have guide slot indents for the heads to ride on when you load them and some lengths may need you to...

    No question I'd peel them. But I wouldn't use them for fence posts unless they are of a very limited number of species, such as black locust, that is naturally rot and insect resistant.
