    Tom it's about being able to repeatably make cuts, quickly, and have complete control of the stock while you do. I make mitered newel posts often. I can take one stock board, one saw setup, and end...

    The standard temp fix is just stick up an FRP (fibreglass reinforced panel) over it, FRP system corners, and done for a while. Obviously there are bigger issues, but the FRP will buy some time.

    I agree with Jim's perspective on this. Installation of foam board is a lot more complicated than it seems too, you'll probably be recalculating the actual cost of sheets part way through.

    GRK Caliburn concrete screws are about 100x better than tapcons. Try one, I bet you won't go back.

    A while back Milwaukee had a batch of bad blade releases. Probably 10 years ago if I remember correctly. You can change the parts out to fix.

    The corded Milwaukee was the workhorse for a long...

    Being a homebuilder through this, I can sympathize. I just got notice that a batch of windows I ordered in August will arrive 22 Feb, 2022. They usually take 3 weeks.

    AFCI are horrible. As soon as the inspection is over, consider switching them out for a better breaker. Tech should make something better or safer, these do neither in my opinion. In my experience...

    I wouldn't switch back to paper, Mirka abranet or autonet is all I stock in my shop. There are a couple other good brands of mesh that someone else can probably recommend.

    It seems to go in phases, a few months ago we put up a couple old fashioned arch quonsets, which are the cheapest building kit to buy but expensive to finish. With neighbors seeing what was going on...

    I have the ridgid in my shop, bought it a long time ago. It and the little ridgid oscillating spindle/belt sander hang out next to each other. They are a constant reminder that I didn't need to...

    Jim our bigger buildings are either red iron or wood frame. Generally wood frame for something like the OP asked about, up to 48' wide or so, much bigger usually is better with red iron. We don't...

    I use a 6" Mirka Deros, just snapped some pics to compare to Marks. I have big mits, but I think even with smaller hands this beast would still be comfortable. It is a serious sander, you can turn...

    Another possible approach if you are like me and prefer using a table saw but just hate horsing around sheets, a lift cart or tip cart can make loading a saw a lot nicer. In my opinion, once that...

    What you are looking for is a laser that you can see outside. That little Dewalt won't cut it unless it's pretty dark. None will over much distance. While the Dewalt is accurate enough, it lacks...

    Good lord, don't cut it. You don't have to use the full stroke if you only want a 5' slider. I used to work out of a 24x24 garage and had a 9' Felder slider/shaper/jointer planer combo, a 36"...

    Closed cell is pretty good stuff, Jim's intel is right. When you spray foam, it expands pretty quickly. When that is sprayed in a wall or roof cavity, the foam "grows" away in all directions that...
