    Office built off the back of a shop, with a separate outside entrance, no connecting door to shop. No dust, and quiet when I want it quiet.

    Record cutters (with the slot) also fit, and I like them better than the Stanley cutters.

    This is the only picture I have in the gallery here, with the stages I build for this work. These are in a hallway that was about 7 feet wide, with 11 foot ceilings. The height puts my head 1"...

    I have one that I bought off the classifieds here, and never used. After it came, I looked at it, and really think I would use one of my regular rip saws for my purposes. I'll look for it tomorrow....

    I agree about the linear bearings. My Dewalt 708, that I bought in 2006, if I'm remembering correctly, still cuts dead true. It's never been locked up though, except one time when someone else was...

    That should work fine. Yes, called level 5, these days, but that's the way I always did it, when I was building new houses, before I ever heard of different "levels" of finishing.

    That was built to fail. Any plaster needs very stable support.

    The wooden lath probably had lime plaster on it. Still not a job for the inexperienced. That's really about the only type I do...

    Tractor supply sells new ones that aren't too bad. I only use them in the mechanic shop though. I keep one with 30W, and one with hydraulic fluid. They put out more oil than the little, old 3-N-1...

    Here's a short video clip of the auto stapler working. Of course, you wouldn't move it this slow, and put the staples that close together. I put a few at one end of a run, and with a helper to hold...

    For jobs like that, the one I use is not cordless, but full auto. You load about three strips of staples in it, and it will lay them out as long as you hold the trigger, or use all the staples. Be...

    I'll skip to the end of my method, which would be to put a skim coat over the whole ceiling, after all the cracks have been addressed. My reasoning for this is to explain why help will be needed.

    The framing has done some moving since 1925, and plaster is unforgiving to that movement. The good news is that it's probably more stable than it ever has been, so plaster repairs can last.
