Are they better off now than when you got them?...see!
I don't know what happened, but all is well in my world again for the last day or two...thanks.
The last couple of days I noticed I must sign in every time I visit the site...it was never like that before. Other forum sites I belong to I stay signed in...any help?
You go...but I'll give up my staple gun when they peel my cold, er..uh..you know.
That's exactly like mine..only mine is stainless!!!
Yep...same here. I got mine yesterday, I guess that's what they all look like. Seems to work just fine.
That metric thing didn't fly so well here a few years back...I don't expect any changes any time soon.
Not including any salvaged (free) lumber, I am building boxes-deeps and mediums-for an average $7.50 each...with free labor. Frames (without foundation) under a quarter each. I find the tablesaw to...
Cut them on a router table...you can stack them and cut two at a time...make a 1 3/8 wide "push block" milled down to 3/4 wide to fit in the bottom slot. Works great. Michiganbees.org has a real...
Stacked dado for sure, make sure your saw will accommodate the stack...frames are easy with a router table and dado blade. Once you set up, cut lots of extras to assemble later.
Get the compressor...narrow crown staplers don't require big compressors.
Take your time making the jig, you will find it very accurate (make sure you use a hard wood for the pin)
Rather than reinventing the wheel, focus on producing a piece as close to accepted standards. If you lack the tools to achieve that goal, focus on acquiring those tools. It will pay in the long run.
Are you working with a table saw?
I like knots...knot holes, not so much. A can of bondo can make holes tolerable as well. Twice the price no good, no good.
7/8" works best for me...
I would let your background trump the option.
I think she's looking for 16 inch deep frames...
CessnaGirl-are your traps in the same locations this year? Are they near water this year?
Coon, for sure...google coon cuffs.
I've had good success bending over the edge of my cast iron tablesaw top...it took some temporary disassembly for the nuc tops, but for the most part, not bad. Using a rubber mallet.
Buy more saw than you think you need. You can thank me later.
I'm guessing it depends on your blade. I have no problem with 1 pass on my saw. Drops in easily.
At $235.00 the grizzly fence seems a bit pricey, but that's the one on my grizzly saw and I'm thrilled with how it performs. (By the way, that price doesn't include the rails)
