    The premise of the fire blocking is that buildings used to be balloon framed. Basically, they'd stand up the walls 2 or 3 stories high, and then nail the floor joists to the face of the studs. Back...

    That is exactly what they did, and they would often cut it themselves, no help. I kinda just walked away, not wanting to see it or distract them. The table saws used were basically 20" by 30".

    Looks like that sled works well. Again, just my $0.02, but that looks big and unwieldy to me. But as I have said, it needs to work for the person using it, not me.

    I'd say it's not. For example, how do you do a combination miter cut on a 16' piece of crown molding? It's real easy on a miter saw. Not saying it can't be done on a table saw, I've seen people do...

    Basically, but I have also worked with folks who would ignore a miter saw right next to them and use the table saw. It's what they know how to run, and either haven't learned how to use a power miter...

    Home projects are getting done with abandon. Maintenance, repairs, spring yard work. Just itching for something to do. I make a list, and each item leaves me finding 1 or 2 more that need doing.

    There were strings attached. But yet, the Kennedy center for the arts was allowed to lay off their staff after getting their money. It's always about the money.
