    It sure is. Around 2014 I was frequenting GJ and made note of the DeWalt SCMS penny deals others were scoring. That kicked off my HD aisle combing but I never scored anything better than an $.02 deal (usually about 75% off) in that area (Savannah, Georgia) Since then I've gotten two penny deals--3 cheap calipers on one occasion and a weed puller on another.

    I need a drill with guts

    Formwork decking here for suspended slabs is a maximum of 1mm thick (the most common used) I just did a search online and found the thickest to be 1.27mm (American made). Like I said it would be unmanageable on a big site to be lifting 3mm sheets. If someone in .au can point a out a link to some specs of bondek type formwork that is >1.5mm it would be great.

    Festool TS 55 track saw

    I'm selling my TS 55 as I purchased the cordless version. I had an issue with power on a stage and had to send it back to Festool. They replaced the armature and brushes. I would like 400 plus shipping for the saw and systainer, no guide rail. I am also open to trades.

    I've been super happy with the cordless track saw, so I picked up the cordless Carvex today

    what the FAAAACCCKK! That's just a retarted price... in fact, that isn't even a price... that's essentially giving away money. Why can't I ever come across the penny deals?!?!

    I need a drill with guts

    Depends who's lifting them or how (crane/forks) but I mean structural metal deck roofing. There are a number of different brands with a wide range of gauges depending on load rating and span. Most common one is Euroclad but I know Tata Steel do on, countless other brands. Some are 0.5mm + powder coat, some are 2mm + powder coat. https://www.bimobject.com/en/tata-steel/product/roofdek-d153 www.euroclad.com/roofs/structural-decks/

    6.0 xr build quality

    My 6.0 XR are Japanese. They have the worst buttons. My 3.0s are Korean. Crap buttons and the packs themselves fit tools way too snug. My 9.0s are all Japanese except one is Chinese. The Chinese one is the newest and seems to have the crappiest button, but one Japanese one has a trash button as well. Seems like a crapshoot thanks to a bean counter design.

    Interesting Drill Comparison

    Ow seem ok to me. They always seem to think up some jig to make it an honest comparison

    Router/trimmers

    You would be much better off having a dedicated plunge router for the accuracy with depth stop etc. You can buy them reasonably cheap these days if you aren't worries about a large style or certain brand.

    I need a drill with guts

    When you talk metal deck roof what exactly do you mean? There certainly aren't any metal deck roof sheets I've seen here in Australia that are >1mm in thickness let alone 3mm thickness? You wouldn't be able to lift the sheets.

    Back back power inverter

    Any word on the price?
  21. SchenzhenSpecial

    Back back power inverter

    With the ability to interchange connectivity there are many arrays possible to work with 36v and 18x2 tools the same but it will be putting out 36v not 18v so this will have to be accounted for with the X2 system.

    They might be discounted elsewhere. These were at my local store. They have been in the rafters by the air compressor tools for I don't know how long. Since they were so far away from the lawn and garden it is probably why it got to 01. Status. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    wow those were amazing finds. Was it just your store?

    Back back power inverter

    That is cool I guess. I wonder why they took this route. You would think you could just have the 2 dummy batteries separate all the time. Maybe it the ability to remove the dummy battery will serve a purpose that Makita hasn't unveiled yet?

    I wasn't just talking about their upcoming drill test but more their tests in general.

    6.0 xr build quality

    Looking at my batteries I noticed some are made in Japan, some Korea so maybe this has something to do with it? I've never been a fan of the whole "Made in China to xxxxx strict specifications".
