  1. Preferred Spade Bits?

    I’ve had issues with them in a drill. Now I just use them in an impact.
  2. What tools did you buy today?

    Picked up a Laminate router kit for 65.00 on CL today. These old kits usually go for 200.00 on Ebay.
  3. An Old Tool’s Value

    I'd do a google search for the particular model I'm interested in and go from there. There was a stanley 110 hand plane on CL by me that was in beautiful condition and the price seemed reasonable. But when I looked it up, it was basically junk . http://www.supertool.com/StanleyBG/stan12.htm When I was looking at them a bit it seemed certain years and models were the most desirable. You will have to do your homework
  4. What tools did you buy today?

    For the price that is a very nice tile saw. I've been very happy with mine.
  5. Send a Prayer to ChrisK

    Glad everything is working out. This is the 3rd time this month where I heard a story where the first doctor missed a life threatening issue.
  6. Preferred Spade Bits?

    Bosch Daredevil bits are the only way to go.
  7. Picture rail molding

    This is some picture rail molding that I made. I wanted something square edged to match the window and door trim.
  8. Figure out the thread size and search “threaded rod coupling nut” and it should come up on amazon. unthread it and try a 3/8 x 16 nut. If not try metric 10mm x 150 or 125.
  9. Can someone tell me the difference.

    Makes perfect sense. When we did a gut renovation on my current house we vaulted all the ceilings, we had a framing crew come in and they all used worm drive saws so I figured that was standard in the industry.
  10. CA fires - Anyone around them?

    Eric you must have me confused with someone else. I only have a daughter and she does not have asthma.
  11. Can someone tell me the difference.

    Nah..... they should all be blade left
  12. Can someone tell me the difference.

    Don't the majority of framers use worm drive saws, and aren't the majority of them left blade? What have you been using through the years?
  13. Why you like and dislike these hammmer

    I have not used any of them, for the work I do I carry a 10oz Stiletto hammer in my bags. With the waffle faces they are all framing hammers. The dewalt looks like the most poorly made one as the casting looks very rough to the point that it could cut you. I just could not bring myself to buy a Friskars hammer. To me they just make middle of the road garden tools. So I would pick between the bottom three.
  14. Power tools: carry bags vs hard cases

    I would rather have a cheaper tool and no case as I never use them. I threw out most of my plastic cases. At home I’d rather just wrap a cord around the router or drill and put it in a drawer than waste time putting it back in a case. Same goes for work. When I transport my tools I just use Ridgid boxes. In the wheeled bottom box I can fit my screw gun, drill, circular saw, grinder, sawzall, charger, batteries and a bunch of other tools. To me it’s just easier that way. I never use the bags for tools.
  15. I have to disagree that air nailers are starting to take a back seat. They are still the standard in my industry and will be for a long time as no one is coming out with battery versions of Senco SKS, SNS, wide crown. Upholstery staplers or 23g headless pins. I have used a cordless 18 gauge and finish nailer and found them to be heavy and slow compared to an air nailer. They are convenient for a few nails here and there but I would opt for a air nailer if I have a lot of trim to put up. As for compressors the new quieter ones are the way to go. Toolnut is now taking pre orders for the Rolair in a systainer, which the Festool fans will grab, but I am really not a fan of systainers as I do not think they are very durable.
