    I calculated the I calculated the area to be covered at 60 sq ft. $5000 for that is just complete insanity.

    Yup, the first one pretty much feels like a "we don't want this job" estimate.

    Jacobs Drill Chuck.

    I have an import keyless Albrecht clone that came with my mill and I've never used it because a pipe wrench was used to loosen it at some point and the jaws are messed up now. Plus the thing is like 2" longer than my Jacobs MT3 mounted chuck.

    Yes, I owned a condo here in Victoria that had to do a million dollar remediation after the leaky condo debacle. Full re-stucco of the exterior. Folks were not happy.

    Our house was built in 1920, it is the original dairy farmhouse. It has a lath and plaster exterior so it's been this way since at least the 50's. We rewired the entire house 16 years ago and took off all of the interior finishing and found zero evidence of water intrusion.

    Stucco because the rest of the house is stucco. And I'm not confident that a weather-tight seal can be created between siding and the uneven surface of the existing stucco. And as @Dabbler said, we live in rain central. In the winter it rains all the time. Snow is a rarity. So watertight is...

    Y'all like big lathes...Here's one in Victoria BC $500

    I think the spindle alone on that beast weighs more than my entire lathe!

    Took some time off this afternoon to make another arbour washer. Really happy with this one. And it's for a paying customer :D They spec'ed a thickness of .30" and I managed to hit .2995" so I'm happy with that. A44 turns very nicely.

    Thanks John, the estimator mentioned three days so at 1600/day that’s $4800 right there. I can’t see three days though. All the prep we talked about is done. So 1 day to paper, wire and parge and another to apply the finish coat seems reasonable to me. I’ll be very curious to see what estimate I...

    DeCicco is who quoted the current price. I was sort of expecting $3K but $5K plus tax seems a bit steep. I have another fellow coming to estimate on Monday.

    Yes it has to be stuccoed so that it's weatertight.

    We just received the quote to stucco the area under the old stairs. Good thing I was sitting down. $4980 plus GST and PST. Seems outrageously expensive but I have no prior experience with this type of work. Knowing that it's difficult to compare costs does anyone have any relevant experience...

    Today's theme was fun with concrete. Made a small form to finish off a chunk of wall that had been broken off. No pics sorry. Then I dug into dealing with the slab that was the landing for the stairs. Measured 53" long by 24" wide by 10" thick. Rough calculation put its weight north of 550 lbs...
