« Last post by emmaemily on September 19, 2018, 02:35:34 AM »
Common Laminate and floating floor problems:

– Peaking

– Buckling

– Gapping

– Mold and mildew

– Expanding HDF

– Chipped corners

Manufacture defect.

I am sure that laminate flooring works afterward as well.

Ask FastCap / Tips for placing sensors
« Last post by harrykane140693 on September 15, 2018, 02:02:45 AM »
Hi everyone.

I will get my HTC Vive this week but I was wondering about something: where can I place my sensors?

I'm a student and the appartement isn't mine so obviously I can't fix them with screw.

Is there a way to fix them with tape? Does it REALLY requires to have them both at 2.5 meters? EDIT: I was talking about the height.

How is your setup?

Ask FastCap / Re: Kaizen Foam issue
« Last post by FastCap on September 06, 2018, 11:08:45 AM »
So sorry you are frustrated.  On our website, there are many videos showing how to combat this problem (go to the video tab).  Some use heated items to make the hole smooth (we sell the Kaizen Foam Hot Knife).  Some put the top layer back into the hole to make it smooth. Most folk really don't care. https://www.fastcap.com/product/kaizen-foam

We want you to be happy.  Please contact Sandi (sandi@fastcap.com or 888-443-3748) if you need additional assistance or want a refund.

Ask FastCap / Kaizen Foam issue
« Last post by dailyxe on September 05, 2018, 08:35:00 PM »
Purchased several thicknesses of Kaizen foam and when peeling back layers, the bottom is very rough.  Not what I expected, at all.  I expected that once you made the cuts you could easily separate the layers and always have a smooth bottom to your cut-out.  Is this normal?  If it is, I'm very disappointed in the product.

FastCap Wish List / Re: RCV Universal Remote
« Last post by FastCap on September 05, 2018, 10:28:05 AM »
Because of how the RCV system uses a unique frequency from the remote to the body, which fixed the issue of it picking up stray signals, you cannot pair multiple remotes to the same body unit. They would need to have separate RCVS. We are not selling extra remotes at this time as they would not be functional. At one point in the development process, we were hoping that multiple remotes could be paired to the same body unit but it ended up not being feasible.

FastCap Wish List / RCV Universal Remote
« Last post by sjdorst on August 30, 2018, 03:28:52 PM »
I was surprised to not see you offering extra remote transmitters for your RCV Universal!

I'd be more inclined to buy the RCV Universal (https://www.fastcap.com/product/remote-control-vacuum) if I can get a 2nd transmitter. I'd put one on the end of my hose, and wear the 2nd on my wrist when I'm in my shop!

I move my hose around between machines as I use them, as well as use it with vac attachments. When connected to a machine, the end of the hose isn't often easily accessible.

Lean Remodeling / Material delivery in a J.I.T. Process
« Last post by Jake on August 26, 2018, 09:42:00 PM »
Hey guys, I have been focusing on a J.I.T. ( just in time ) approach. For the most part I have been pretty happy with the success. I think it gives us a edge on our competition, and I think are customers are extremely happy with the turn around time. There’s a few things that I am not thrilled with.
• if I want to get material delivered it might be several days out.
(I have switched suppliers where I can, but only 50% of my suppliers offer same day or next day delivery, the other 50% offer materials/products I can’t get anywhere else)
Otherwise someone is in a truck picking material/products
• I am next day airing specialty products (I could stock this stuff, but I am finding this to be the best, however it can be extremely expensive at times)
• errors are made during material take offs, this might be making assumptions that a certain fastener is stocked at a local supplier. To a unusual beam that has a substantial lead time.
Does anyone have any recommendations on Better process of ordering materials.
I use a kanban system that works great. It is a huge help! I just can’t stock everything I need for these larger jobs. Plus I would need to get a much larger shop.
