Earlier this month, we published in the magazine an updated version of Tim Uhler's classic. This time for JLC readers only, Tim included a few updated items. One of these was his take on the Makita XPH07T cordless hammer drill, which finally offers a cordless option big enough he can leave all his corded drills behind.
In this most recent Tools of the Trade slideshow, Tim covers 20 more essentials that make up what he calls the “infrastructure” of the framing site. These items are not as sexy as titanium hammers, laser levels, or beam saws—but they are equally essential to completing the job.
