    I've never been a real fan of "peel and stick", especially when it comes to durability, particularly with the adhesive. Then again, maybe things have improved with environment specific products. The...

    Lots of walls are built with stones that are not flat/level, including angled as you show. If that stone is stable, leave it be. With or without reinforcement by pins, etc., when you mortar in new...

    Yes, it should be fine if put down property. Really tiny wheels for mobility might not be the best choice, but larger ones that are more typical should roll over it just fine. This is purely opinion...

    I didn't mention a slider earlier because of the specific question asked in the OP by the OP :) but since that's been broached...yea, that would be and is my personal preference, too. I'm truly...

    I haven't studied what's the best practice for seams on the roll-out material, but will have to do that. There may be an appropriate tape product for this...but it has to be suitable for concrete. ...

    Very interesting old tool and something that could be quite useful. Fabrication of a guard for around the belt might be a good idea while you are cleaning things up. I'd probably change to a...

    I'm starting to find this idea actually attractive vs painting/coating for my new shop, both for cost and for installation time. Three rolls of that and I'm done. Literally.

    Even though I'm moving to clamp-together duct for the new shop, given the choice between spiral and snap lock, I'd pick spiral after having used snap lock for many years. It's a better solution all...

    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...

    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...

    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...
