    Dust Class M v OSHA

    Auto clean filter is not mandatory for an M class. It's a feature many times on thee more expensive m class vacs but it's not mandatory. Dust bags can also be gotten for every vacuum, L or M class

    Sorry but I have to disagree with you man [emoji16] Here is how I see it: 1=single 2=dual 3 or more= multi Skickat från min LG-H815 via Tapatalk

    Multivolt becomes more appropriate if they end up doing X2 with the batteries (so 18V, 36V, and 72V).

    TSC 55 Track saw

    I picked up the TSC 55 Track saw last week. Its is basically the cordless version of their track saw with a brushless motor. So far I'm very happy with it, no real time tests but it seems to have more power than the corded version. It comes with a dust bag and the dust collection is incredible with just the bag and no vacuum. It runs with 1 18v battery, but there is a considerable power difference when adding the second 18v battery to make it 36v. I got the air stream batteries with it.

    Metabo HPT dual volt...ac or DC tools

    Multiple or MultiVolt is accurate and sounds fine to me. It's more than 1 voltage so by definition, multiple works. Dual is more specific as it specifically denotes 2. Either isn't wrong. I think MultiVolt sounds better. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    Sounds like the corded adapter is a free option for bare tools.
  11. Metabo HTP is coming out with a Multivolt 10 inch table saw. Normal Metabo has a 10 in but it isn't sold over here yet.

    It's actually multivolt, which makes no sense in my head. There is no power tool battery that can manage several voltages (3 or above, hence multi). Like framerjoe called it, dualvolt, that sounds better to me [emoji6] Skickat från min SGP511 via Tapatalk

    Dust Class M v OSHA

    The other feature of Class M vacs is an auto clean filter, and dust bags rather than an open bin. I'm not sure if that is mandatory but it is certainly essential. I'll have to dig into the Makita details later.

    Sears Files for Bankruptcy

    I don't exactly stay abreast of the latest business news, but based on a few sources, it seems that best Buy is considered to have had a revival of sorts. A few years ago they were in dire straits but have reversed and are actually pulling a profit again. JC Penney was mentioned in a few articles, but the consensus seems to be that they will gain from Sears' current situation. They are, after all, one of the few national mall anchors left.

    Dust Class M v OSHA

    Well the Makita is still a HEPA filter. It'll filter just the same dust as the hilti if not more. The Makita just doesn't give you an alarm if the filter for example is clogged up to the point that dust extraction doesn't work anymore and alot more dust will be escaping instead of being sucked up

    Dust Class M v OSHA

    The biggest issue for me in doing old house refurbs is that the dust spontaneously accumulates as soon as you remove the old carpets and start lifting boards, replacing windows, insulating roof spaces, knocking out plaster for new back boxes, routing new cables and plumbing. It's a constant battle and if you're spending a day doing back boxes it's easy to carry the cordless tools from one box to the next but the vac is a palava that is often ignored - stick on a face mask and live with the dust. So while the Makita cordless isn't Class M, it is more likely to be used.... or maybe I should value my health to be worth more than £1000 for the Hilti.

    I find it hard to believe Target will close. There's a rather large group of people that practically worship Target. Target is a bit more expensive but it's a MUCH nicer environment. KMart's problem was that it was exactly like Walmart but worse in every way...well that and they've been owned by a guy making money off of selling high interest loans to KMart/Sears to bleed money out of them. What Target needs to do is expand their wine selection and add free 2-day shipping while using a marketplace like Walmart/Amazon(third-party sellers, expanded selection). They're killing it with their app and by having Starbucks in their stores.

    Sears Files for Bankruptcy

    I have heard rumors that Best Buy and JCPenny aren't looking too good either not near as bad as Sears/Kmart though. I wouldn't be surprised if Walmart kills off Target too. Walmart is basically becoming a monopoly of sorts. Killing off the stores who can't compete. Successful stores are getting less and less with behemoths like Walmart and Amazon around.

    Sears Files for Bankruptcy

    Sears at one time was the Walmart or Amazon of it’s era. They failed to develop and support their web site to replace their once top dog status in the mail order business, ceding it to a relatively unknown mom and pop book store! They also went the direction of Walmart in killing retail by selling cheap (quality) goods but didn’t have the distribution and pricing power of Walmart so they got creamed there too. Once quality was tossed out the window their pricing power on tools, appliances, clothing, and electronics went with it. Sears was the quintessential marriage of mail order and retail before that was a “thing” then killed it by trying to be me too and not holding onto their market differentiations. So once we didn’t look at their web site (catalog), stopped shopping for tools and appliances, then what’s left? No surprises here. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Dust Class M v OSHA

    The DX units for the rotary dhr243 works excellent. It's bulky but not heavy. I'd say it captures 90+ procent of dust

    Dust Class M v OSHA

    Yes, I'd seen the Hilti which is why I got excited seeing the Makita US site extol their capabilities for s dealing with silica, which sounded like M in this country. On a related note, Makita do have some great on-tool dust accessories featured prominently on their US site. I'll have to investigate those too. Has anyone got hands on experience of them? I was thinking of starting with the DX02 for my SDS 243

    Sears Files for Bankruptcy

    Well, Sears has filed for bankruptcy: http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/sears-files-for-bankruptcy-mired-in-debt-and-deserted-by-shoppers/ar-BBOonxR?ocid=ientp I know we've been forecasting this for quite some time, but Sears may be gone sooner rather than later. According to what I've read, there are still some who are cautious optimistic that Sears will stick around, but others think it will only last as we know it through the holiday season. The nostalgic side of me is saddened by the thought of a store my family shopped at for decades simply ceasing to exist, but then again this isn't the first time such an instance will have occurred. Montgomery Ward preceded Sears' decline, while more specialty big boxes also no longer exist. Thirty years ago, Circuit City and Toys R'Us were juggernauts in the electronic and toy retail sectors (respectively), and the retail landscape was vastly different prior to the internet becoming so omnipresent. So, what does this mean for us? Almost nothing, really. When was the last time anyone here even stepped foot inside a Sears? For me, it was probably last year, when I visited the Columbus, GA Sears prior to it closing. I picked up some discontinued DeWalt safety footwear for cheap (the fact that it seems to have been discontinued for a couple of years at that time yet was still in stock speaks volumes about the store's sales) and walked through the tool section, feeling melancholy as I realized it might be the last time. Let's face it, though, those of us who frequent home improvement stores, supply houses, online retailers, or myriad other sources for tools and supplies are unlikely to even notice if Sears ceases to exist.

    What is this part called?

    Good morning all. I've got a question that, while it might be better aimed at GJ, I figured I'd ask around here first, as I don't really frequent those forums much. I need the plastic piece that goes on a door strike post of a Jeep Cherokee. I found a picture of the whole assembly, which I've pasted below. All I need is the plastic piece and not the whole bolt / post. Does anyone know what this part is and if you can buy just the plastic piece. I don't especially want to shell out $30 for the whole assembly when I just need the one part. Thanks and have a great day.
