comment How to drill a groove to the side of a plywood board?
It's difficult to figure out what you're asking. Do you want to drill an actual hole or route a dado/groove? Because you mentioned drill press, this assumes you want to drill a very straight hole. In that case, check out this: amazon.com/Gator-V-DrillGuide-Standard-Portable-Drilling/dp/…. I have one and they're a must-have for straight, accurate drilling if you don't own a drill press. I drilled a 3/8" wide, 4" deep hole right into the edge of a 1/2" sheet of plywood once and the bit went straight in without coming out either side.

comment Brand New Nail Gun Makes a Dent but No Nails Come Out
I think the dent is just the nail gun's impact against the surface by a combination of either 1) the pressure you're pressing against it and/or 2) recoil

comment Effective alternative to water-resistant barrier behind siding?
@iLikeDirt Fair enough. You got me pointed in the right direction last time where I ultimately ended up speaking with the commercial plans examiner, so I'll start looking into the local contracting board or the closest equivalent of.

comment Effective alternative to water-resistant barrier behind siding?
@iLikeDirt Agreed, but, as I stated, it may be possible that the installers didn't replace all siding, that any missing WRB would be the fault of whoever did it prior. If that's the case, hiring an attorney to go after the 2012 installers would indeed be futile because you can't sue someone for something they're not accountable for. Well, you can, but you wouldn't have much of a case.

comment Effective alternative to water-resistant barrier behind siding?
@Comintern It may be the case that installers didn't replace all siding in 2012 and did a proper install complete with WRB for the siding they did replace. For the siding they didn't replace, we'd have to find out who the last company was to do that and those records are probably long gone. Therefore, if the 2012 installers can't be held accountable, speaking to an attorney would be futile.
