    Hopefully if they’re really doing a cordless router it will be a Felxvolt design (and therefore less compact than the Makita), prompting Makita to release a larger cordless router of their own. I love the Makita compact but would also like it if they had a bigger model.

    Pretty sure it’s out this summer. Not positive though. Glad I held off of Makita and Milwaukee.

    EBay Deals Permathread

    Another 15% off of $25 (up to $50 max discount) sale from EBay. The trick here is that the "deals" that are listed from the front page are kind of crappy. However, if you click through to the deal page "15% Fun in the sun", you can search eligible deals and find some killer deals. Here are a couple of things I've found that are eligible for the promo: Makita XTR01T7 18v Router kit (w 2x5.0 AH batteries) - $289 Makita 5.0 AH batteries (2 pack) - $92 Milwaukee M18 Fuel Hackzall (bare tool) - $99 Milwaukee M18 Fuel Mud Mixer (bare tool) - $143

    Sell Me (or not) on the One+ Edger

    Thanls for the input. I decided against getting the edger, and though I thought that today was supposed to be the last day of Ryobi Days, the promo signage was all taken down yesterday. The TTI reps here in central VA have been very proactive; I've seen them at least five different times in various stores in the past week alone, usually working in teams of two or three. By comparison, the rep that services the Columbus, GA, and the Phenix City and Opelika, AL stores is usually only there on weekends. Regardless, I think I have all of the Ryobi I want for now, besides the narrow crown stapler. I have two each of the new 3 and 6 Ah batteries to run them, which pales in comparison to my other battery systems but should do everything I need.

    Pretty pumped to see that update. I’m sure many will be pleased to be able to fire full head nails out of a Dewalt with this thing though. Code doesn’t care about clipped here though; we don’t have to batten down the hatches on a regular basis.

    What tools did you buy today?

    Hitachi DS18DBFL2 compact 18V drill via Ebay from the USA for only $140 AUD delivered. It only took 10 days to get here. This model is not available in Australia. We can only get the large 136Nm drill or the older model drills. Non-hammer compact drill drivers are VERY hard to find in Australia. I can't find anywhere that sells local versions of the Dewalt DCD791 or Bosch DDS183/GSR18V-EC. I know there are places in Oz selling the DCD791 on Ebay, but they're importing them from the USA. Anyway, I now have another battery platform. I don't even own a charger or battery for Hitachi yet. I wanted and tried one of those Ebay imported DCD791's but had to return it due to an issue. So then I had a Bosch DDS183 in mind from Blackwoods Xpress (Aus), but by the time I went to order they'd sold out. Then I considered importing a Metabo BS 18 LT BL from the USA, but I just couldn't commit to it because I had doubts about the grip ergonomics (once you try Dewalt it raises your standards, and I've disliked every Metabo grip I've had). This Hitachi grip is fantastic! It feels more comfortable than Dewalt's for me. A very well built drill and the trigger feels great. (I'm nearly ready for multivolt)

    6.0 xr charging issues

    I'm not sure if that's what's going on because now the battery doesn't seem to want to charge on my fast charger either. It flashes normal for a while and then it says it's charged but when I take it off the charger it still only has 1 bar. That being said it's worth a try maybe I'll mess with it some more tomorrow. Thanks

    It’s been mentioned here and there on the internet for weeks if not months by people who are well connected that a cordless router is coming. That’s been in many responses to complaints of a nice teal router with no yellow alternative. 10” 60v mitre and 10” 120v hybrid table saw are both dead in the water from what I’ve read due to new regulations on table size for both tools relative to blade size. A 10” would be a full size table saw rather than a 10” compact and the regulations are why the cordless 10”’ Makita is a fat pig like the FlexVolt lol.

    6.0 xr charging issues

    Its a charger issue not a battery issue, I had the same issue last year when I sampled a grinder kit with the 6.0s. The issue is in the computer in the charger you have to "reset" the charger. What you have to do is put the battery on the charge and remove it very quickly 4-5 times and it cycles to electronics to reset. This fix came from a Dewalt rep, let me know if it works...
