    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. :)

    Honestly, I've never seen a post frame structure with a truss spacing more than 4'. I would imagine it's possible for something small or for when there are unique and heavier trusses, such as for...

    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,...

    That's short sighted on their part and very sad. Also, post frame structures are not limited to metal siding and roofing. They can be finished with whatever materials you want while retaining the key...

    Maurice, the equivalent to the 100% acrylic Impervo from SW is ProClassic.

    Mike, it's absolutely true that one can do the work with a track saw. But the OP is in a professional/production situation. I'll also be honest that when I first moved into my temporary shop here at...

    Yea, I'm somewhat comfortable with the idea...I could not do this at the old shop, but here, with a wide open space, I can better accommodate grouping for efficient power and dust collection networks...

    I still own the Wagner gun but it's now dedicated to shellac. I bought a gun with the 3M PPS system from Jeff Jewitt a few years ago as it's much better handling some of the more viscous finishes...

    I agree that the 1/2" version of the Trimaster may be more forgiving, but I haven't tried it. When I bought mine "a long time ago", it was the 1" version through the saw manufacturer and my MM16 is a...

    Bill, curved cauls exert more pressure in the middle where there can be no clamps. That keeps things flatter while the glue sets. An alternative is a taller caul that has more strength in that...

    Very valid question, Jamie. It shouldn't be an issue building things with screws to permit disassembly unless there is a bearing wall involved.
  17. For a building of that size and height, Post...

    For a building of that size and height, Post Frame is your friend...much more cost effective, easier to put up and stronger relative to the height of the open space. Even my smaller building decision...

    That's correct. A three axis machine "can" do lots of joinery cutting, but it's not necessarily the most efficient way to use the machine because of the jigs and setup required.

    BTW,...

    More mental gymnastics around potentially how to arrange things "in general". Note, I took the slider out of the picture for the moment as the model is for the larger machine I used to own and the...

    John, Robland is part of the Martin USA group now, not Laguna.

    John, it's not necessarily the bits, although typical sheet goods cutouts are done full depth with compression tooling in production shops, often .375" diameter tooling for .75" material. A lot of...

    The majority of cabinet work has moved to CNC in the industry at this point...it's not really niche like it was a decade ago for smaller shops. It's a lot more affordable these days to the smaller...

    There are certainly times when a tracksaw shines for a particular option. But in the shop, especially for some kind of production, a slider is going to be both time effective as you note as well as...

    It's become my go-to for so many meat (and other things) cooking solutions for getting a more precise "done" for internal temperature before searing off. Most things, like steaks, etc., I'm shooting...
