  1. Nice. Looking at drills, you rate the hilti te? thinking of one of the bosch's....

  2. hi - i'm looking forward to seeing you guide - is there a way to download it without singing up for something?

  3. 4 shared is pretty safe. Although if you prefer or anyone for that matter you can email me at, and I would love to send you a copy!


  4. hi - any way you can repost this guide? the link seems broken. We are going to be in the area in 2 weeks - wouldn't mind chatting with you as I was thinking of bolting the lines near the traverse, or re jigging those two harder projects - thx marcusnorman03 at yahoo dot ca
