  2. solid latex

    like anything else, it depends on the wood.....on newer lumber, they last and last, but they get torn up on older stuff when the wool snags the splinters etc....they're just awesome for spindles when I dont spray (bben to damn windy lately to spray) pads and paddles and brushes today. and they ain't expensive. so I just ordered a boatload (well, maybe 15)
  3. solid latex

    ditto........... :) just got a box full of the stain paddles..... they are fantastic!!!!!!
  4. solid latex

    true, true, nothing worthwhile is ever easy.... :) (I can use an easy one or two though)
  5. solid latex

    nice going Barry, came out better than I woulda thought. gotta love that TimberStrip Pro
  6. Copper thiefs

    too funny. actually a giant pink bunny costume.....because nobody will believe them that a giant pink rabbit whooped their butts into confessing.... and as soon as one gets caught, there is another to take their place immediately
  7. Olympic Removed

    Thanks guys n gal, I thought it would have been more of a nightmare to strip than it turned out to be. I did a test with full strength SH and it melted the thickest areas on the verticals in less than 7 minutes, so to avoid severe fuzz and not punish the wood too much, I cut the TimberStrip Pro to 5-6 oz per gallon, lengthened the dwell a bit and it worked well. I easily could have went to 4 oz per gallon but didn't. (hindsight) Some spindles hung on tight, but were easily cleaned up with the makita defelter. The fascia and the top rails worried me with numerous coats, but wow, they melted away and no fuzz to boot.
  8. Copper thiefs

    oh, common, you miss it !!!! NOT :) just doin my job......actually got called in on overtime for that case....I like working on the "big clock"........$55.00 an hour for OT ain't bad :)
  9. Olympic Removed

    The customer was, lets say "difficult" to be nice, but I think he was pretty satisfied when it was all said and done.....
  10. I haven't posted anything meaningful is awhile, so I figured I'd share this one. This had some cruddy olympic, and many areas had several coats one on top of another, giving it the look of solid paint........
  11. Copper thiefs

    a lot of new condos have been getting hit with copper thefts here where I spend my regular work days, but we nabbed 2 of them trying to make off with 800 pounds of 2" pipes.......matter of fact Ill have them in court next week. after I was done interviewing them for about 3 hours total, they admitted to many other thefts in 4 different suburbs, and they got charged with felonies in every job they did.....they were getting $2.75 per pound. now they're looking at steel bars instead of copper pipes :)
  12. wood defender makes a gray sealer that may be what your looking for if he definetly wants it sealed as opposed to letting it gray naturally
  13. here's the kids!

    you would be amazed at what these people can do.....easily find where you live, what IP you use, the location of your network etc.... ive been to too much training on this topic, and its truly scary, with the correct software, and websites, these people along with the police (which is good) can take minimal computer info, ie: your website, or email address and within 3 minutes have an overhead picture of your house with driving directions........it sucks, but its the way it is. another thing these nut jobs do is take kiddie pics off legit websites, digitally alter them and sell them worldwide as kiddie porn....seen it done a zillion times. Im part of the IL Attorney Generals task force which works kiddie porn cases, website (chat) predators etc....its a real big deal obviously, y'all can do whatever you like, and odds are nothing will happen, but its a real issue... photos of the kids stay off the internet
  14. Latest Deck

    18 feet up???? I HATE doing the outsides that high up.....now the kicker question.........did you do the underneath????? ps...looks sweet too
  15. Gorgeous mountain deck
