Exterior: scrape? sand? waterblast?


Mike,

What kind of fill do you use for filling in dents, cracks and countersunk nails? I have a 85 year old clapboard exterior house. Any special kind of caulk?

Thanks for bringing this up, now taking the paint off of my 85 year old clapboard house is beginning to look possible to me.

Does one just use a shop vac to attach to the unit, or rent a special vacuum if there are lead concerns?

What kind of machine shop might sell the cutter inserts? How could I locate one?

thx...
