Anybody ever seen the Larry and Joe Haun videos about basic framing? I don't know what it is but I could watch those guys all day long.

yes ive seen several of the videos, we watched them in trade school when i was first starting out. amazing seeing a 60 yr old setting sinkers in 1 hit

unfortunate that he passed a couple months back though

His hammer(s) should be in a museum. It doesn't take a Hulk Hogan to sink a nail, but Larry Haun was particularly light framed, which makes it even more fun to watch.

being strong doesnt help with driving nails, its an a fluid swing and the ability to accelerate the hammer . sinkers are pretty easy to sink in one hit if you do it for a living, im in canada. sinkers dont exist up here. we use 2 1/4"s and 3 1/2"s

He was fast, thought out every step and streamlined his work. I don't agree with all of his stuff. The measuring stick and starting over with your measurement at every wdw would really make it hard to sheet walls over.

I've worked with 80+ year old men framing a house. It's outright amazing the kind of physical shape some men put themselves in over the course of their lifetime.

You can watch those movies on youtube BTW.
