    2019 tools

    Looks like a lot of new cordless brushless tools are coming out this year. Track/plunge saw, cordless air compressor, 36v dust extractor, looks like a 10" cordless table saw and lots of specialty tools by the look of it! If anyone can shed some more info it would be great. I'd like to see the specs of the cordless dust extractor as opposed to the flexvolt. The CAS looks cool, I guess if you're in Europe!

    Dewalt DCA1820 adapter question

    Why not get rid of the older tools on eBay, Craig's List and Offer Up, then get new tools w/ or w/o the 20V MAX XR batteries? When I sell, I fully document any / every issue that exists, w/ photos and text.

    Dewalt Angle Grinder

    I would second pretty much everything builditguy said about the dcg412. Corded models will be cheaper and more powerful especially for grinding but the convenience of being cordless out weighs that on our jobsites and the corded models collect dust on the shelf. We also have brushless models and while they will give you more runtime, they aren't really neccesary for diy. The dcg414 is the closest to a corded grinder but overkill for what you need and it would require you to get flexvolt batteries.

    Milwaukee M12 Fuel ratchet problem?

    I had the same issue with my m12 3/8" non fuel ratchet. It seems like there were some youtube videos and forum topics about it. If I remember right it was supposed to be a cheap easy fix but I just sent mine into milwaukees e-service and they sent me a brand new one. Its not a tool I use on a regular basis so it wasn't a big deal sending it in but I also hadn't hardly used it enough to break it either. I also thought the fuel version was supposed to have a beefed up head that could take more torque without breaking though.
  8. Anyone noticed this before with their Milwaukee M12 ratchet? Just to show that when I hold the socket in my hand or on a very loose bolt the socket wont turn, if I try it free load it works and also works when on a tight bolt, nut etc. I verified the Pawl and gear all looks ok. I'm not sure whats up https://youtu.be/VHbbSGW9QEs

    5.0 dead 😭

    Only had 2 batteries go bad in the last 4 years. One, I dropped in the lake. It was only underwater for about 10 to 15 seconds, but that was enough. Can't really say it was a battery problem. The other, a 5ah, just stopped taking a charge. We have about 10 batteries in each truck, so 1 battery in 4 years is pretty good.

    Dewalt Angle Grinder

    We use the DCG412. One in each truck and they get used a few times a week. On some jobs, it is one of the main tools. It will do everything you want it to do. It will run down a battery fairly quick. Never been a problem. 2 batteries will cover it. For straight grinding, it will get hot and shutdown after a while. I think its actually the battery that shuts down. Never been an issue. We have corded ones, but they never get used anymore. They aren't even in the truck and I would have to look around, at the shop, to find them.

    Dewalt DCA1820 adapter question

    I have a couple of tools that use the 18v nicd batteries and the batteries need to be replaced. Well I have a dewalt 20v grease gun that uses the 20v lithium battery. So I figured I would get an 18v to 20v adapter to be able to use that 20v battery in the other tools. I have the DCB200 3.0ah lithium battery. According to what I have read, the DCA1820 adapter will not work with this battery. Anyone have any experience with this?

    Why DeWalt? Why Not?

    Thanks for the reply, the router is corded DW625 so as you mentions the saws and planner may benefit i have been looking at the flexivolt 6AH , but none of my tools need s flexivolt and now sure if the investment would see a return .

    new Q1 2019 onsite brochure

    @ToolBane....only Europeans who visit the USA think 20v is more Powerful then 18v... Americans are smarter and can figure it out....same as everyone saying 12v when it's 10.8...bosch, Milwaukee etc..... .... obviously you hate dewalt,that's fine your not in construction ,framing , remodeling if you were a pro you'd be buying dewalt flexvolt, because no cordless saws are better.... ...relax and enjoy flexvolt 60v.(54v for you ) watch dewalt dominant..

    Dewalt Angle Grinder

    Welcome to the forum. If a corded tool is an option, then the DWE4214 4½" small angle grinder that I use is a real workhorse that I have zero reservation recommending. Note that the DCG414B 4½" / 6" 9,000 rpm grinder is a 60V FLEXVOLT tool, so a complete kit would be required. The DCG405FN 125mm grinder is a ROW tool that may be difficult to find in the US, but your 18V comment indicates that might not be an issue. My kit includes all the available cutting, grinding and surface conditioning discs / wheels / guards for maximum flexibility on ferrous metal, aluminum, stainless, masonry, porcelain, ceramic, marble and granite.

    Dewalt Angle Grinder

    Hi, I'm thinking of getting a Dewalt Angle Grinder in the next few months Its just for DIY use , sharpening garden tools , 21" lawnmower blade etc cutting bricks / paving slabes etc I have a couple of 3Ah batteries and may have to buy a bigger battery to run the grinder i have been looking at DEWALT DCG414B and Dewalt DCG405FN, as it has a better angle range not a priority for me right now - but on my list any other suggestions - I am invested in the dewalt cordless system - as i have 6 other cordless 18v tools planer, jig saw, circular saw, mutli-tool, combi drill, impact driver, I have the corded DW625 router , so thats not on a future list I also have STIHL tools for garden, so no intention of buying into dewalt chainsaw, strimmer , hedge trimmer etc thanks in advance for any suggestions

    Hilti cordless framing gun GX90

    Joe did you have to through break in period with dewalt cordless Framer? Mine sucked ass.... I had 3-4 small pt just under 200sf at ground level and had no desire to set up Air for few hrs job especially when squeezing these in afternoon. The framer sank 1 out of every 4-5 or so. Aggravating in the least. I returned it. Sent from my E6810 using Tapatalk

    M14 Grind Wheels, where to find ?

    I am having extreme difficulty in finding M14 arbor thread grind wheels for steel. I can find lots of wheels for granite, concrete and stone, but cant find any steel M14 grind wheels in the US. These fit metric threaded grinders operating on 220 Volts. Any sources or help is appreciated. Thank You.

    Why DeWalt? Why Not?

    The 5 ah will improve performance of these tools. With the drill and impact you won't hardly see any difference in performance. I have a couple 2 ah and a handful of flexvolt 2/6 ah which are more powerful than the 5 ah. The only difference I have seen when using either battery on a drill/impact is runtime. The power isn't noticeably different. The tools you will want a larger battery for are your circular saws, grinders, routers, planners, etc. Basically the tools that need lots of juice to run. May I suggest looking into Flexvolt batteries as well? They work in most 20v max tools including all the ones you listed.

    new Q1 2019 onsite brochure

    Interesting. I guess it makes sense in a way. more balanced but could also be less comfortable to use if larger batteries are used because they might stickup into the users hand.

    It seems us Europeans will get a different cordless sander?! The battery orientation is upwards instead of sideways...
