    Bryan, no, I'm not up for doing my own spray foam other than corner sealing. I'll get some more current quotes, however, once I'm closer to build. Getting response has been difficult and I may have...

    Steve, I don't disagree with TWW's logic on that...a whole bunch of cross cutting really is at 90 in my experience, so a fixed fixture, as it were, can be ideal for a lot of that work. I don't...

    Yea, it's not something that might be immediately intuitive, but scoring capability can sometimes be a "problem solver" and I'm looking forward to the new slider I bought for the new shop which...

    "Old stock" can do that sometimes, even though Zinsser products do seem to have a reasonable shelf life. 'Hope the uber-thin coating resolved things for you!

    Mike, while I don't use scoring the majority of the time with solid stock, I have employed it occasionally for something that it was critical for me to get a very clean cut both top and bottom. It's...

    I"ve only had a cabinet saw in my (temporary shop) for about a year right now and I had to nearly immediately make up a crosscut sled in order to safely (at least for me) do that kind of work. A sled...

    You "should" be able to clean the product off with multiple applications of mineral spirits/naphtha and constantly clean/new rags. It takes patience, but you should be able to do that. That said, be...

    To do a machined chamfer like you describe, it's likely best to do it prior to assembly so you can take advantage of a fence. At this point, I'd do the abrasives route...make a jig that holds the...

    It may be that it's currently so dry in many places that rain exciting the radar may not actually be reaching the ground. I've been having the same challenge here with the radar, too.
