Ok so putting this my stories was a horrible idea. Lesson are obviously not being learned here from earlier this year. Wake up Ontario, this is just not good enough. Thoughts? . . Regrann from @framersfirst - First off, I had nothing to do with this shit. Not sure who has to die before this crap stops. Seriously, houses need plywood or osb to hold them square. But until builders are forced to build responsibly things will never change. It's this kind of crap that hurts those of us who really care. I bet that inspector lost his marbles because a point load was missing or a truss hanger was missing a couple of nails. The roof on the raised bungalow has a beauty stack of shingles on it to make it really top heavy. #framer #framerproblems #carpentersareadyingbreed #carpenter #squaresnaprepeat #builtright #malibuboats #wakelife #wakesurf #sb12ismessedup #lowestqualitypossible #obcproblems - #regrann
While @hiltinorthamerica Innovation Day I got to play with their BX-3 concrete/metal fastener. I saw this earlier in the year at world of concrete but was hoping for an update on the date to longer pin capability for us framers. This is basically available to replace powder actuated fastening systems for less demanding job's. While this is surely a impressive unit I'd still like to see a larger capacity available like the @dewalt_ca comparable unit. You can see my bud Austin @tools_at_work using the pole attachment for over head fastening. He is trying to reach some I beams for fun. What do you guys think, leave as is or larger capacity?

I have been asked quite a few times if the universal blade wrench on the @martineztools speed square will work with @makitatools rear handle saw. The answer is absolutely! Works really well actually. Haven't seen anything on this square I haven't liked yet. . . #framers #woodworkers #carpenters #tools #handtools #level #angle #pitch #degrees #roof #rafters #titanium #quality #trusted #industrystandard #square #speedsquare #martineztools #makitatools #makita #bladewrench
Couple more wall's to go. Braced up for the extreme wind and get out of dodge! Happy Friday everyone! If you are in the path of this wind just remember. When in doubt add more braces. . . #2manarmy #framerlife #framing #framersareadyingbreed #framers #framerproblems #carpenter #carpentry #stayhumble #staydriven #bepassionate #takepride #squaresnapbuildrepeat #buildstuff #residentialconstruction #nailgun #nailer #keepcraftalive #windstorm
I got to try the @hiltinorthamerica SR 6-A22 reciprocating saw. Really nice smooth cutting saw. I really like the rubber boot on the saw. Was extremely comfortable and gave good grip. The saw also comes with a rafter hook but I have concerns of its durability. Still a nice addition to their 22v line up. Opinion is based off 6 cuts so take it for what it is. I would love to get it on site to have a real shot with it. . .

Ok back to work! On a hump day none the less. Finished what we started on Friday. Best thing about having a saw that has the full cut capacity of 2½" is just run it wild and cut them off. We are ready to start banging some walls tomorrow. . Hopefully we'll get a few up. . . #framerlife #framing #framersareadyingbreed #framers #framerproblems #carpenter #carpentry #stayhumble #staydriven #squaresnapbuildrepeat #buildstuff #residentialconstruction #joist #engineeredfloor #tji
20 yrs of jobsite technology has certainly changed. This is the @hiltinorthamerica PD-S . Crazy difference in size. . . #hilti #hiltitools #hiltinorthamerica #tools #newtools #innovation #framers #contractors #gc #framers #toolsofthetrade
@hiltinorthamerica releasing the first OSHA Table 1 compliant Cordless Vac Model number VC 75-1-A22. Weighing in at 11.5lbs and super quiet. Quiet enough at 70.9dba to have a full conversation with no worries of speaking over. . . #hilti #hiltitools #hiltinorthamerica #tools #newtools #innovation #framers #contractors #gc #framers #toolsofthetrade #dustcontrol #vacuum
Here we go @hiltinorthamerica Innovation Day 2018. I'll do my best to keep you up to date as I move through out the day. . . . #hilti #hiltitools #hiltinorthamerica #tools #newtools #innovation #framers #contractors #gc #framers #toolsofthetrade
Well, I'll be hanging my bags up for the next couple of days. I'll be on a plane heading down to Dallas, Texas to hang out with the great people @hiltinorthamerica for their Hilti Innovation Day. So all you #Hilti lovers this one's for you. What would you all like to see from Hilti on Tuesday? . . #hilti #hiltitools #hiltinorthamerica #tools #newtools #innovation #framers #contractors #gc #framers #toolsofthetrade
So for the last month and half we have done a addition/Reno and a deck that we tore down and rebuilt. Both of these jobs I've had multiple reasons for the use of the high power that the new @milwaukeetool M18 super Sawzall proved it's worth. Both videos are shot one handed on setting one of the variable speed. Still enough power to get the job done with ease. Definitely in love with this sawzall. It has power for days. . . #milwaukeetool #m18 #supersawzall #brushless #tools #toolsthatwork #powertools #sawzall #southwesternonatario #framers #reno #additions #decks #deckdemo #NBHD
Now that is a window you don't see everyday! 73x13 just for a little nature light over the washer and dryer. It sure was a funky one to frame as the fun would only fit in with the nose depressed #yikes . . #framerlife #framing #framersareadyingbreed #framers #framerproblems #carpenter #carpentry #squaresnapbuildrepeat #buildstuff #builditup #contractor #kitchener #cambridge #kwarea #nailgun #nailer
Well this @dewalt_ca tstak radio certainly is a welcomed upgrade. I wouldn't say it is extremely better than the tough radio but definitely but the most common complaints were taking care of. The thing makes me happy is the fact you can use flexvolt batteries in the radio. That too me is just awesome. Another awesome feature is the USB support on the radio for either streaming music and/or charging your phone. While framing or simply rocking out in the shop. This radio didn't disappoint in sound or loud. Great job on this one @dewalttough . . #dewalt_ca #radio #cordless #flexvolt #20vmax #tstak #dewalt #dewalttough #jobsite #framers #framing #tunes

Marking up one pricing another. How far into preparation do you go when you get a set of drawings? Do you mark them up and highlight everything or just go gang buster and finger it out on the fly? . . #framerlife #framing #framersareadyingbreed #framers #framerproblems #carpenter #carpentry #squaresnapbuildrepeat #buildstuff #residentialconstruction #prints #drawings #elevation #pricing #efficiency #visible #preperation
Just so you guy's and gal's know you can order the @hultafors Dry Marker from the good people over at @tftools until there is a North American distributor. They will ship to Canada and the US. #hultafors #marker #pencil #sharpening #refillable #darkmarks #clearmarks #layout #carpentry #carpenter #framers #woodworking #clipon #tools #handtools #layout #timber #wood
While I was out yesterday @atlasmachinery I thought I would bring "My precious" with me to put it in the hands of some people and let them make a opinion based on feel and actual sight of the @martineztools Titanium Speed square. This is my buddy @hl_construction This was basically my reaction when anyone touched it lol. I personally don't really care what the opinion of others is on this, simply because this was something I've personally wanted for many many years. I thank Mark and Jimbo for making it and it was fun to have discussions (more like teasing) about it during the process. It is simply unheard of for 2 guy's to go from an idea to a physical working production model in just under six weeks. That is amazing just in itself. It was nice to hear the excitement in the voices as we talked about it. So I am personally extremely happy to have this and am buying another. So I am sure the comments, the mocking pic's, and hate is far from over. I know the people who bought one will be just as happy. I am still extremely happy to have this in my hands. Last square I'll ever have. . . #fromframersforframers #framers #woodworkers #carpenters #tools #handtools #level #angle #pitch #degrees #roof #rafters #titanium #quality #trusted #industrystandard #square #speedsquare
