    Did anyone else notice that the nail gun isn't hooked to an air hose, and the he nails one of the corners twice. Obviously he isn't really nailing it together. Just a funny observation....

    Two corners twice.

    Looking at the boxes they produce, I'm happy using my cheapo table saw and the results I get over spending 1/4 mil on a dedicated CNC router...

    The website is great though. Simple, direct, to the point. For a front for a small side business I think its great.

    Aren't y'all being a little critical? You've never done it that way to cut back on your supply (nail) cost?

    Default Hint:

    Did the red hose on the floor help you to notice that the air gun was not attached?

    Could that be when we are snowed in or it's been raining so much that we are getting "cabin fever'

    Those boxes are very nice to use however. The handholds are amazing and make lifting hives/supers very easy. The corners are also very tight when assembled and should prevent a lot of rotting issues that way. The hiveware manufacturing is just a side business for them also.

    Tecumseh is thinking straight, with the air assist. That's what I had. Used theair pods from highway trucks to push the metal platers (instead of those clamps. Had 2 plates pushing to sqare it all up. That square up contraption sat on a swivel so you could get to the next corner. Sold it to a fellow. I then went to visit him recently and now he has a contraption to square them up and I think 10 or 12 air guns that fire a once to keep the box together. Still has to apply the glue by hand.

    I bought threaded inserts from this company years ago...

    Carr Lane may be a source for some of your jig and clamp components...

    If you didn't have a need, or project in mind, you will after you look through their catalog.

    That looks cool, but only 7/16" travel. I would think you need a longer throw.

    I wouldn't spend the money on the CNC either, but these guys did, and the woodenware they produce is top rate for a good price. I've bought many of their boxes, and they are tight fitting, straight, and they have great handholds. I also figured out that it is cheaper in the long run to buy their unassembled boxes versus building them myself.

    I watched them assembling the boxes with their jig clamp and it does work pretty slick, especially when their air gun IS plugged in, LOL.

    Nice video. It would be nice to have a contraption like that once I get a bit bigger in my operation.

    Did anyone notice in the video that the fella had his index finger on his left hand in a bandage too? Work shop safety is important anytime anywhere.
