It has come to my attention that some of the Houses being built out on Long Island are being framed with pressboard Lumber. I saw a small piece of 2x6 today. It is very dense and heavy. Has anyone had any experience working with this type of 'Lumber'??
Specifically, what type of Drill bits must be used? It seems to be burning up standard bits and drill motors. Can't use 'Nail-on' boxes or staples either.
that's the rafters or joists ( terms outta my trade here) , they have a 2x2" runner on the sides... Bill's taking about the laminated stuff, kinda like the ends on those joists, only 2x4 etc... It's gotta be made by evil elves at the lumber co

It's not me doin' it right now, but it could happen sooner or later. Some of the locals were asking about it at the seminar today. I thought I'd toss out a question and see if I could get some answers for them.
I'm not real sure what types they've tried. Hopefully they may join in at some point with specifics. What types have you used?
