  1. Looks like Milwaukee is finally coming out with a 23 gauge nailer. I've loved using my brad nailer and am hoping the quality holds up for the pin nailer. I currently have a Grex but I've been slowly going cordless on alot of my tools and have not looked back. I contemplated getting the cordless Grex but couldn't justify the cost. The Milwaukee is set to retail for less than half and with all the promos they offer I wouldn't be surprised if you could get it even cheaper. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Milwaukee-M12-12-Volt-23-Gauge-Lithium-Ion-Cordless-Pin-Nailer-Tool-Only-2540-20/
  2. Works very well for me. Besides using it to make rip/cross cuts I also really like to use it with a dado blade. Just make sure you don't do what I initially did and put the guides right on top of the blades otherwise you get a deeper dado than expected. Aside from the limitations Bob mentioned they're great and use them most of the time. Another piece of advice is to make sure not to set them so they put too much pressure on the wood. Consistently doing that will deform the O-rings eventually and they ain't that cheap to replace (at least not if you're ordering them from Jessem). DAMHIK.
  3. I haven’t done it yet but I’ve read that if you already have a vacuum press setup you can use that with the vac heads with a couple of adapters. This is probably the route I’ll go in the future.
  4. Beautiful work! How long did it take?
  5. Pretty sure that's to hold small pieces on a Router table. Not sure why they're using it on a TS Edit: Didn't notice angles so maybe not.
  6. I don’t use it for fine woodworking. But even making openings for outlets is a little more difficult so far. It’s a little more jumpy when you do the initial cut at least compared to my Vecturo. But it does make the cut a lot quicker. I should note the wall was plywood not drywall.
  7. Decided to get a cordless to accompany my vecutro. This one is a lot more aggressive. I didn’t take note of either stroke length but the Milwaukee feels double. Great for quick cuts but a little bit harder to be precise. Maybe I just need o get used to it.
  8. I just put 2 coats of stain on it. What ever home depot had. I think from behr. It was their lightest redwood stain option. The bleachers originally had a much thicker stain plus a film finish. I scraped off the some of the really thick parts and the gum. Lots and lots of gum Then ran it on my portable planer. I'm very glad I decided to keep it even after I upgraded to a floor model. I would have been scared of damaging the floor model planer. Surprisingly I found all the wood to be heartwood. Which is great because if I bought a board that large new it would be easily be $50+.

  9. Thanks for comments. Besides the mortise in the curved part of the gate it was a pretty straightforward a s easy project. All but the aforementioned joint was done with a domino. Redwood very easy to work with but also super soft and dents real easy. I dropped one of the gates during install and there’s now a small dent. I choose to call it character lol.
  10. I wanted a cleaner look on the outside so I put the latch inside. The right gate bolts down and the left gate latches to the right. So you can just open the left and still have the right locked down.
  11. An early Christmas present for mom. She's up in age and has been stuck at home since covid so gardening is her only form of exercise. Made out of recycled redwood bleachers. You can still see some of of the stained bolt holes. Decided to leave them in instead of cutting around them.
  12. I guess it’s a matter of perspective. I’m a hobbiest so For me my tools almost never leave the house so getting a different brand battery or forgetting to bring the wrong bat is not a problem. There are just some tools I wouldn’t get if I had to pay msrp and some brands might never put that specific tool on sale. In any case it works for me but I understand it’s not for everyone.
  13. Sorry about that. At that price they were bound to sell out.
