LOL! My bro has been a framer in Kansas City MO for 30 years, and he can't find work at $20 an hour because companies are hiring illegals to frame for $10/hr. The contractors who are hiring these guys should have their licenses revoked.
Americans aren't bothering to learn to build because they can't afford to work that cheap! If you start running off the illegals and paying what skilled labor is actually worth you could put American citizens to work. What a freaking concept! Of course you couldn't afford to buy your wife a new BMW SUV every couple of years, might that be worth saving American workers?
Wow! great idea, wonder if my husband would miss his basketball?
Love it! so simple, yet so effective. A company I installed doors for had a "no tool belts in the house" rule just to prevent tools and nails from spilling out onto expensive floors. Thank you!
April Fools! Better than my husband telling me that he got a job across the country and we're moving!...Even if it were possible, would be cheaper just to buy a new piece of wood(unless it's from some rare tree in the middle of the Congo that's illegal to import anyway)Looks like wallpaper paste. Don't buy any used cars from Chuck!! :)
Great tips...although the second one won't work with lumber rack on my truck. I'd like to make a request tho...although Chuck is "folksy" and knowledgeable, I'd like to see a cute young guy demonstrate some of these things! :D
Thanks, Jen (25 year Carpenter, mom and grandmom)
This is amazing! I have the old type battery Senco finishing nailer, as well as the Paslode cordless framer and brad nailer, (got spoiled when the other guys on the crew were using them) and the cartridges are pretty expensive. I would love to get one of these, as soon as contractors in California stop hiring illegals to do carpentry, and start hiring American citizens again. Then I will be able to afford it!
Uh-uh, not going for it. Not even with a brand spankin new Marathon blade...
How'd they do the sparks, tho?
Love it! What kind of tape is he using? Are these guys practicing during their lunch hour? Where's the PM? or is the guy with the tape the PM? a video even a non-carp can enjoy!
Miter for paint grade, cope for stain.
Mitering even works with a sloped ceiling, if you make a few trial cuts with a couple of scrap pieces to get the correct angles.
