Been kinda lazy shoveling snow this winter. Luckily  I have a rotary hammer. About 10cm of compacted snow and 15cm of ice under it at the worst spots.

All Finished.   I think It turned out alright!

As some of you may have heard, I was building a workbench and a table for my drill press today. The top of the workbench in the picture is actually for the bottom shelf. I am getting a piece of 2 inch

My kids have a small bookshelf in the hallway next to their rooms,it has been overloaded and started to just about fall apart I noticed the other day. The boy and I proceeded to beef it up and glue,na

I used the m12 stapler yesterday and today. We were insulating a new house build. It was excellent. The runtime will last all or almost all day on one 1.5 amp/hr battery.  Used one battery plus half of another in two days of heavy use. I had zero jams. Where it really shined was when we needed to insulate some harder to access places like in certain parts of the roof and a framed area above a fireplace hiding the exhaust. With no air hose I could navigate the trusses to get where I needed. When we did the fireplace one guy climbed into the framed area to insulate with the stapler while I cut the pieces. I left the stapler with the guys for the week to try out. I will be gone from work a few days. They seemed excited to use it. I wouldn't be surprised if work buys one. I told them the price and I think they all said something along the lines of "thats not bad". I also told them what it would be to replace our Senco pneumatic with a brand new Senco pneumatic and the m12 kit was around half the price of the Senco which didn't even come with a hose coupler. $300 for Senco and $150 for m12 kit.

 

As good as the m12 is, it could still use a few improvements. A light isn't essential but would be nice. I wish it used a different kind of dryfire lock out system. It can be annoying at times because it can be hard to press the nose enough to allow it to fire in tight spaces. It also needs to fire a bit faster. It just can't compete speed wise with our Senco pneumatic staplers. I don't think double the rate of fire is too much to ask for.

Welp I'm just about done with a remodel after the client had a fire.  We took this house down to the studs and changed the floor plan to open up the kitchen and living room and also increase from 2 bedrooms to 4.  I just have to redo to front and rear decks then it's complete.

I started getting back into my painting roots so I took on a little starter project, it’s a Fulton visor off a 1936 dodge. I still have to let it cure and then color sand and buff.
