Tim Uhler is a lead carpenter for Pioneer Builders in Port Orchard, Washington. His father started building in the late 70's so Tim grew up pounding nails. "I would ride around to different jobs with my dad and nail together any two blocks of wood I could find". He spent summer breaks on the jobsite. After high school Tim studied accounting at the local community college and received an Associate's degree, but decided to leave the office work to his dad and brother and focus on construction. While trying to learn more about building he stumbled across the JLC forum – where he met and learned from some of the most experienced framers in the country. He eventually began to write for JLC and Tools of the Trade. At last count he had written more than 40 articles and tool reviews. Tim regularly contributes to the forums at JLC and Contractor talk, and posts video on his YouTube channel – Raftercutter. An avid photographer, he spends his spare photographing the Pacific Northwest.

Two Senco hardware nailers are put to the test
As a framer, I prefer inline saws to sidewinders because they're more durable and less likely to bog down in heavy cutting.
Get faster dry-in and a tighter building envelope without housewrap.
I have used or owned most of the metal-connector nailers on the market, so when I heard that Paslode was introducing a new, smaller Positive Placement tool, I was eager to try it.
This spring DeWalt introduced the DWS535 wormdrive saw.
When Bosch introduced its first line of pneumatic nailers last spring, it claimed that the tools were 20 percent smaller and 10 percent more powerful than the competition.
