I need one that's at least 26" wide. I guess I should have mentioned that.

Anybody have a recommendation on a mobile auto detailer in the Denver area? Or possibly a detailing shop?

Sign Company

Any recommendations for a sign company in the Springs area? I have a design for the sign already. I'm looking for a company that can make the sign and install it on this building:

Anyone had dealings with insulation removal and spray foam vendors?

We have had a few mice in the new house and when I started removing the bat insulation in the area between foundation wall and basement ceiling I have found that this must have been going on for a while with the previous owners as well from the amount of nesting I have seen.

So I'm looking to have the old mouse poop infused bat insulation removed and spray foam applied in it's place. I have already started removing the insulation myself but would like to see what it would cost for someone else to deal with it.

Hi Gents,

I'm trying to source locally (or rent or borrow) a pneumatic upholstery stapler - i.e. that shoots 22 gauge.
Along the lines of this Fasco:


...anyone have any leads so I don't have to go mail order?

I have a HF, but I think it's 18ga. Why 22? Get a good deal on staples?

Most 18 gauge won't go below 1/2" length staples.
22 gauge allows smaller ones for working with more delicate/thin materials.

The 22 gauge ones supposedly won't breach the fabric either (I'm regurgitating 10 hours of youtube video gained knowledge - i.e. completely talking out of my arse )

A must-have for installing that special elephant foreskin fabric you picked up for the van?

You might call / visit the toolcrib at resource 2000. They have a lot of tools for rent cheap.
