    Re: Tom's Tool Belt

    Nope, haven't found the answer. Gonna say from the responses from some of the "senior" members that there will not be any help from them either... Too bad. Was just looking to see what belt it was.:(

    Just remove any...

    Re: need help choosing new tub/shower

    The first thing I would caution you about in shopping for your new tub/shower is that it must be able to fit through doors on the way to the bathroom. Most of the one-piece units are intended for new...

    Re: Upstairs tubs backed up

    I agree with JLMCDANIEL. I would start by contacting your landlord.

  6. Re: can I use stained and painted molding together

  7. Re: Trim & Baseboards buried / flush with plaster

    Even though it's not what you want to hear, the correct way would be to tear it down and fix anything underneath the added layers. You could do this one room at a time to cut down on the mess and the...
  8. Re: Lumber Stores Closing, Is it any wonder?

    Finish carpentry is by far my favorite part of construction. But I gotta be honest with you, I would not want to be just a "finish carpenter". My personal opinion is that to carry the title of...
  10. Re: Lumber Stores Closing, Is it any wonder?

    Almost hate to admit it but I had 7 years with 84 Lumber. The main reason I got out was I love doing the actual construction. Was building/remodeling before I went to work for them and went right...

    Re: Titanium or not?

    Thanks for the info jKirk. I was wondering about the size of the heads. They don't look to practical for trim. I do a lot of remodeling and I would prefer to use the same hammer for most of what I...

    Re: Least Expensive Window Casing?

    In my experience the least expensive trim to use is MDF. The only drawback I would see in your application is that it has to be painted. May not be what you are looking for in that respect. MDF is...

    Titanium or not?

    Have been hearing a lot from different places and a couple of carpenters about the Stiletto titanium hammers. After swinging a steel Estwing for most of the last 28 years I would like to know others...
