    ToughSystem Trailer BuildOut

    I only have two racks installed in my 6x12 thus far for a few months as I slowly plan to expand to at least 4 rows by years end. After seeing the price difference I said screw the van system and went for the wall instead that came with the "free" organizer. Thus far no issues at all and I have a few bins loaded up quite heavy. I'll try to remember to snap some pics.

    Jake, reach out to @overanalyze about this. He has a pretty sweet set up and Andrew is a great guy who might give you some good insight. He manufactured how own brackets for the work truck they use too. Also congratulations on that trailer, it looks sweet. Any chance you’ll post some pics of the unit itself. I have been thinking about getting one in the next year or so.

    ToughSystem Trailer BuildOut

    Just Purchased a 6x12 enclosed trailer and plan to outfit the trailer with 2 tall van racking systems with multiple boxes as well as locations for mitersaw on rolling stand, table saw on rolling stand. Air Lines,compressor,nail guns, tools , etc. Just wanted to check with the community on a few things before I begin to start purchasing and will update this post as the build goes along. 1. Where/how should I purchase the toughsystem to recieve the best price? 2. Anybody have a trailer/van setup have good products or ideas that work well for them (pics please) Any and All information is much appreciated

    What tools did you buy today?

    I've been needing a 250mm Knipex pliers wrench for a while but I came across this "copy" in the local Bunnings; a Trojan Multigrip Wrench. It was only $29 AUD with a lifetime guarantee, and so far it seems to operate pretty much on par with my 180mm Knipex pliers wrench. The red on the Jaws are removable rubber shoes. I'm really liking it, especially considering it's 1/3 of the price of the Knipex. If you're in AUS check them out. I think the quality is ok for the price.

    Miter station build

    Drill drawer update. My drill bit/12v drill storage is atrocious and I need to get it organized. I made a "simple" holder for the drills/impacts/batteries/and attachments for the flexiclick. Turned out alright. They still fit tight. I originally had them facing downward but it was too tall for the drawer that way. If I was going to do it this way I would have used the next size up in forstner bit. Oh well. I'll hit it with sand paper and a rasp. Next was the forstner bits. Half of my bits we're in a case and the rest were still on the blister packs. Those of course do not store well. Using another piece of scrap plywood I cut it to width and then made a grid. I then laid out the pieces with approximate equal spacing. Much faster than mathing it all out. Last was the bit storage for the self centering bits, countersink bits, and plug cutters. I had a good spot on the right side of the drawer for this. I elevated the holder for easier access and replacement of the bits. I made another grid and drilled an 8mm hole (just bigger than the 1/4" shank) and drilled out my spacing. I drilled more than needed so I can add more pieces and move things around if needed. There was a lot of tear out even with the Brad point bits I was using. Overall I am MUCH happier with how this turned out. I had been scratching my head for the longest time about a solution to the drawer. I got everything back in except for the milescraft drill guide. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    Drill/Driver Anti Kickback

    Oh I didn't realize the current one key had anti kickback. I thought that was something new with the 2806. My bad.

    Drill/Driver Anti Kickback

    Works good on the OneKey models. The newest gen 3 OneKey drill will be out very soon, I think beginning of November. Same for the DeWalt DCD997 with Tool Connect. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    Drill/Driver Anti Kickback

    To the best of my knowledge the one key model isn't out yet. I think it's supposed to be released sometime in November.

    Clearly Defining Blade Usage

    Thanks, it's all common sense really. Sometimes it's hard to make people adhere to that. The other day I had a couple friends help me rip some 4x9 down to 3 feet. I had to force them to wear gloves. They were coughing for the next hour. Durrrrrr. Smart people can be dumb.

    that is a pretty good set of rules.

    Drill/Driver Anti Kickback

    Anyone have experience with the m18 fuel drill drivers and using the anti kickback mode go one key? I currently have a Bosch with antikickback and love it. I’m considering making a move towards Milwaukee products and wondering if anyone has any direct experience with the anti kickback functions on tbt Milwaukee’s. Thanks!
  14. I have noticed they could mark their levers better (which direction is lock or unlock) just so people don’t forget which way is which if they haven’t used the tool in a few

    Makita Cordless 10" miter stuck in bevel position

    Yeah seriously. If operating the functions of your mitre saw/reading your manual is too hard then perhaps you shouldn't be using power tools

    Clearly Defining Blade Usage

    Thanks for your input! The document as-is more or less expands upon your rule set, though I did add a bit about foreign bodies and fiddled with the blade text based based on your suggestions. Expecting people to ask for training is a lost cause in this context, but all the rest of it is along the sames lines that you were thinking. In case you are curious, this is v1 that I will be putting up today. Table Saw sans information.pdf

    Makita Cordless 10" miter stuck in bevel position

    Created an account to show you guys how to "fix" your 22.5° beveled stuck Makita miter saw. There is a black switch at the back which is turned 45° clockwise. This enables the 22.5° and 33.9° fixed bevels. Slightly move the head of your miter saw to release the pressure on this black switch (else you can't move it), now you can pull it back with your other hand and turn it 45° counterclockwise. Problem solved. Hope this helps some people.

    Clearly Defining Blade Usage

    The biggest thing in my book for a table saw is safety. If you don't get safety right then someone could get seriously hurt. Push blocks aren't a save all but they can protect your hand from the blade by keeping it further away from the blade. Another thing I do is rest my pinky finger on top of the fence so my hand wont gravitate towards the blade. I would say if the fence is 2-3 inches or less from the blade, the cut should require a push block/stick. One thing that wouldn't hurt is require anyone needing to use the saw to go through safety training before being allowed to use the saw. For the material restrictions, maybe you could say please only cut wood. Make sure it is free of metal or any other foreign objects. If you need to cut something else please ask _____ for assistance/approval. I listed my suggestions/ideas below in a more rule like format I guess. I hope this helps. Do not operate power equipment without going through safety training. Only cut wood with this saw. If you need to cut something else please ask _____ for assistance/approval. Make sure the material is free of metal or any other foreign objects unless approved by ____. A push block or push stick is recommended when using this saw. Any cut where the blade is 3 inches or closer to the fence a push block/stick is required. Never operate the saw without the riving knife installed. Leave the saw in better condition then when you found it.

    Metabo HPT dual volt...ac or DC tools

    Well they are followed by quintuple, sextuple, septuple, octuple and so on, so on... A friend of mine made me think twice today about my statement, he took a video game as example and told me that two players can play together and that makes it a multiplayer game so I guess it does make kinda sense to call it multivolt. You win Travis! [emoji16] Skickat från min SGP511 via Tapatalk

    Panasonic already uses the Dual Voltage name for their 14.4/18v compatible tools.

    Clearly Defining Blade Usage

    I recently received a table saw for my birthday to help me with some large furniture projects. I fitted it with a Diablo 40-tooth general purpose blade. For the time being it will be living in a "semi-public" workspace, so long as others adhere to a rules sheet that I am putting together. The short version of that sheet is Use appropriately for a given task Be safe Leave it as you found it Point one has hit a bit of a snag; I would like to be able to clearly define when the blade should be temporarily swapped out. Officially this blade is "intended for cutting oak, pine, plywood, pressure treated lumber and boards". That's pretty vague, and I would like to be able to say something like "Only cut wood. If your wood is harder than ******* then this blade is not appropriate". I was wondering if anybody could give me some guidance on this. While I do have some professional-level training in set building, I am overall fairly amateur at woodworking and I feel this is important to get right. Thanks!

    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

    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.
