    I use PEX A (expander) usually, and yes you can make that outside the wall if you want. I usually do, with one exception being a toilet supply valve. I like to pull a little hose through the wall,...
  2. Exactly, just don't put screws too close to the...

    Exactly, just don't put screws too close to the box and flex the drywall away from it. The bit will jump off the box the instant it loses contact if a gap between the drywall and box allows. Leaves...

    The rotozip tool has dust protection built into it and while it's still a filthy mess to use, the tool doesn't care. They make a model with some dust collection built in, I've not tried it though.

    I agree with what the guys above have said, you still need shutoffs. I replace nearly every single valve that I run into because it leaks or has some defect. Same thing when they are stacked up in...

    Yes, Menards. They carry the Sioux Chief brand. Pex hose should all be marked but it is a little hard to see at times. I switched to only using Pex A hose a while back. It's more flexible and...

    Don't give up on the electric planer, it is a useful tool. I personally use one often as a scrub plane on the slabs I use for countertops and stair treads that have warped a little in drying. Try...

    No tingle here, just disgust. My local lowes used to have the best "only tool store open on a Sunday" selection. They carried Bosch, Dewalt, Crescent, Estwing, Bessy, etc. Now it's just kobalt and...

    I use the oscillating saw for it. Work from the inside out, around the pipe with plunges.

    You'll find that the manufactured products (Trex or Azek) will be a lot more floppy than a real board and heavier. They also don't do as well as you'd think in ground contact. You'll want to change...

    When we move into a construction site, my crew brings a lot of saws. As the job progresses the saws tend to migrate to different areas based on use. By noon you will find that there is a corded...

    Hi Larry, one of ours is a Transit 250 with the little ecoboost engine. That engine is a beast, and good mileage. In my area diesel is more expensive than gas for some stupid reason, so when that...

    Being consistent with the argument that FLW architecture is defective because a roof leak developed later, would require pretty much all buildings built before yesterday to be judged as subpar...

    I was working on a porch swing yesterday, cutting some curves on the 14" Delta while thinking about the 36" Oliver in the other room. That little Delta sure handles the second saw role well in my...

    LOL! I don't know if it's that bad, but I definitely get where you are coming from. I think of Falling Water as part of Wrights substantial portfolio of work which includes a huge variety as...

    I like the word "better". Falling Water is better than Gamble. Falling Water was profound at it's inception, and still is. Gamble is nice woodwork in a rather boring house design.

    I have an expensive ripping blade that I bought with my slider that I never use because of this very thing. It's factory sharp still, one of these days I'll toss it.

    I bought the jig, used it a couple times, now it just sits around somewhere, not even sure where. Install a couple and you will catch on quickly.

    A circular saw can be used with a straight edge of some sort to provide a nice finished cut for whatever your project will eventually require. A sabre/jig/sawzall will be a more jagged cut that most...

    I wonder if a 18 volt battery could be made to fit? Still plenty of them around, and you can get an 18 to 20 volt adapter if you want to get crazy. Probably a plastic tab in the tool that keeps the...

    I'd add that they are so bad that they piss you off every time you see them. Had an expensive tile saw sitting on a set, they or course self folded when they were slightly bumped which caused an...

    Wow, I think you got some good deals. I haven't been keeping up on tablesaw prices, but last I knew, a decent PM66 was more like $1,000-$1,500. Did I miss something?
