We don't do a lot of trim, but have always kept our old DeWalt 15ga nailer (from 2002 when we were trimming (market was slow)) in the van. We install exterior doors with screws, but like to take the frame in place as we shim. I've said it before and I'll shout it from the rooftops. I LOVE CORDLESS TOOLS. This gun does a great job. You don't have to apply much pressure and the gun fires almost instantly. . . .
Here Kyle is nailing the frame at the tops and bottom before we shim and fasten with screws. We follow Gary Katz's method of door hanging (google it, he's such a cool cat). I really like using those composite shims too and save the pieces for hanging windows. Kyle is wearing his rain coat because we were siding in the rain. We had left the door out when we poured the front porch to keep it from getting concrete on it. . .
The jam was taped with Zip Tape after install was done.
I have no clue why @skilsawstaytrue would make such a little Saw, like what’s it for? Cutting toothpicks?
Jokes aside look at this freaking 16 5/16” monster!
Worm drive as well! 🙌
You can’t help but smile when you hold this saw.
Sorry for the long post, but this is important.
Today marks my last day working in the retail industry. Leaving Michael's for the last time was an extremely bittersweet experience. This incredible woman pictured with me I consider my "work mom". For the past few months, I took on an enormous and unfair workload being the only person running the frame shop. The frame shop is meant to be run by four people, one being full-time. Essentially, I became the framing manager, but without the pay and benefits. Anyway, Lynn Del was the one person I could always turn to for help and guidance. Whatever I needed, she was there by my side. Together we kept the frame shop afloat. We shared some laughs and amazing stories along the way, but I knew I couldn't stay there forever. After almost six years of working in the retail industry, I can finally say that I'm done. On Monday, I will be starting my new job with EMSL Analytical Labs and I couldn't be more excited. This is a huge opportunity for me to get into the "professional world" and get the experience I need. I don't regret my time at Michael's at all because I've learned a lot about myself as an individual, and what I am capable of doing. I am definitely going to miss working with the beautiful people I've met through Michael's, but, as they say, it's not goodbye, it's see you later.❤..
