I don'i even know what a waste burner is or why I'd ever want to produce heat it's in a contractor bag with shredded paper in a 5gl. bucket and will be garbage.

A waste burner is essentially an oil fired furnace with a lot of filtration on the input end. And here it gets cold in the winter and if you collect the oil you can heat for less or free.

Exactly. If you are pulling in 100s gallons a month, why wouldn't you use it to heat your place? Otherwise you need to have a company pick it up and pay them to do it.

I don't think they do "heat" in Hawai'i.

Check and see if the end of the driver is rounded. I'm betting a new driver will fix it.

So last week, I've got a hack repair to an underground, homegrown hack water supply line to a hack, home grown apartment, They punched it thru cinder block foundation, then fed that black plastic for a supply. Appears they managed to damage the line EXACTLY where it clamps onto the inside galvy. So it leaks. Typical hack repair attempts, silicone caulk, some sort of epoxy, tape, etc.

So there I am, breaking out some bits of block around this junction - which they made EXACTLY where it passes thru the block - no room to access/repair it.

The only tool/weapon of choice at hand is two claw hammers - place the claws of one against the block, smack the face with the other one.

This took about an hour all told, in very confined space, and all the while I'm doing this I'm thinking "God, I am so glad no one is around to watch me do this hack bull ****.

The claws were pretty well junk by the time I got done.

Oh well, HD has more.

That looks like potentially an improperly racked nail, as in not fully parralel or in the chamber when the firing pin hit it. Is it doing that consistently or the nails bunching up from weakened nail collation?

Bummer. I know when the chamber gets wore out and expanded, the nails will get messed from improper alignment to firing pin.

Super Max are nice...

A good framing gun will go almost forever,, I have 2 that are about 30 years old. I know what breaks and keep parts for them.
