  • Alev replied to the topic 12” Power Miter Saw in the forum Ask a Pro 11 months, 1 week ago

    These are all great information, I learned allot. All of these brings up a concern with the 12” machine which is the weigh . It looks like with the glider type of 10” equipment I will be able to cut 2”x12” which is sufficient for my projects.

    That being said, I need to determine the best equipment among 10” machines.
    Thanks

    I have used warm white vinegar to dissolve the hard water deposits.
    What I also recommend is that you might benefit from a good water filtration system. Most city water quality is not very good. There are dirt, calcium, chemicals, and pharmaceuticals in the incoming water to our homes, bad for our health and for the life of our appliances. I end…[Read more]

    Charlie,
    Andy and Brian is very experienced, they helped me out on my steam room project with great input.

    I am hopping that before you installed the tiles, you prepared the wall behind fir proper waterproofing materials to avoid mold problems later.

    If do, the only thing I might like to add is this: if you are filling a deep and/or wide gap…[Read more]

    Great progress with the project. Granite and marble installation is completed; all looks good. This being a Roman style steam room, I will install traditional pedestal sink made of solid travertine ( called Kurna). In old times this vessel provided the running water in the steam chambers.
