I believe The Teenage Woodworker was Andrew Fewsmith. I don’t think he does woodworking anymore. I’m still friends with him on FB. I believe he is studying videography. Still a great kid, young man now.

Just got the 3M 6500 respirator on Marc’s recommendation. The drop down feature is the bomb, don’t have to take off the whole thing when the phone rings, etc. On wearing a respirator, have you noticed when using Nexabond 2500 on a large area that it is REALLY irritating to the nose and throat. Maybe CA glues do that in general, I don’t know. But am using Nexabond more and more.

the bostich pin nailer seems to me has the same trigger set up as other guns, it look like the safety trigger would be much easier or quicker to pull, on my gun the safety trigger almost wraps past the main trigger, safest thing to do is be familiar with your equipment and treat it with respect, after all it is called a nail GUN
