  2. Corded stapler issue

    When it fires twice does it hit twice or fire two staples? If I understood what you're saying it hits twice and that sounds like an electronics problem. Does it hit twice if you hold the trigger in normal operation? Maybe the trigger switch is sticking. Is it the exact same amount of staples before it fails? If not, maybe try a different pack of staples and cleaning the gun. Spray some WD40 or brake cleaner into the area where the staples are fired from and the track, then cycle the gun so the spray gets on the plunger(that pushes the staples into the material). My guess is an EEPROM or some other form of control chip. It wouldn't be worth the time trying to reflash the EEPROM (if that's what they're using) or change any electronic components (Leaky caps or diodes). What's the warranty like on these? Maybe you should try tweeting or instagramming Arrow, that's how you get customer service in 2017.

    This looks like a huge fail. Look at the difference compared to the corded model. The motor on that one is waaaay beefier. 700W for a 230mm angle grinder? Seriously?
  8. Corded stapler issue

    Hello, I'm having an issue with my Arrow T50ACD. After firing a few staples it will suddenly fire twice and then time-out for a couple of minutes and not work at all. The. It will work again for a few staples and repeat the process. Any help resolving this issue would be greatly appreciated!
  9. As a rule of thumb I'd say 3.5 is the limit for sds plus, but I'm no scientist. Ideally it'd be great to get AvE to take a look at this, he has a great channel on YouTube. My Milwaukee at 4.1 chews up chisel bits ease.
  10. Cheers Tug. Yeah it's a tidy little unit for sure. What sort of size / joules do you start to see a lot of busted chisel tips at?

  12. That vid popped up in my YouTube feed, top job, well presented. As for the drill, seems like a good machine from the specs and the info from yourselves. 3.1 joules is plenty for that weight machine, shouldn't see too many busted chisel tips at that rating. Looking forward to your shootout!

    Xph07 and dhp481 are thesame tool. Different sticker on em
  17. The same is true of nearly every dangerous item and its so-called "professional" users. I know Soldiers who think they are incapable of making a mistake when it comes to firearms, and almost anyone who is into guns has seen, or at least heard of, the DEA agent who shot himself in a classroom. I passed through Gastonia, NC around the time Kyle Busch got ticketed for driving 128 in a 45 mph zone (he was featured on the cover of the local arrests tabloid). I'm sure if someone asked him at the time he'd have stated that he was a professional who knew what he was doing -- not some local yahoo with a souped up 350 and no track time. From my experience, guys who ride sports bikes take a disproportionate amount of risk, doing stunts on the highways and zooming around vehicle ten times their size. Again, though, "it won't/can't/whatever happen to me, I know what I'm doing". I, for one, don't want the last thought going through my mind to be, "I was wrong".

  19. What tools did you buy today?

    I ordered several dozen Flying Dutchmen blades for it, but even with the factory blades it cuts nice. Once I get a little practice, I think it'll be an enjoyable hobby.
