New accessory/tool

The Win Bag
I got two of these, as I often am working alone. Make installing and leveling a window much easier. Like another set of hands. Came in handy leveling our stackable laundry units, as we had to replace the washer. And they will come in handy when I finally get around to installing our kitchen cabinets.... I have heard they are useful for getting into locked cars too.

Ross, locked myself out of the pickup once, AAA sends a guy with the bag slides it between door and jamb, pumps up, slides a metal strap in and lifts the dr lock, took about 4 minutes.... Pretty slick

Woodcraft. I got mine through Amazon, but other online options like Home Depot

I had to install a pair of double prehung doors this week. Solid core, so were pretty heavy. I did have a helper. These Win Bags were unbelievable! With double door set up we are dealing with six planes. A pump here, ease off there, we were able to get the doors lined up with consistent reveal all around in half the time it would normally take. The time saved on this and the next job I use them for justifies ordering two more....
