    If it’s pretty punky, you might be surprised at how much air space is left after the water is baked out. You’ll also be well served to keep the blank fully submerged after removing the vacuum,...

    I don’t have their brad points, but i love my Norseman split points. If I start doing more flat work, I’ll replace my junk brads in favor of Norseman or Lee Valley.

    I picked up those Klein’s a few years ago when I was putting in a sub panel. The money hurt when I paid the bill, but within a day I was wishing I’d done it much earlier in my life.
