    Dewalt 735X planer

    Have one of these on the way that my wife surprised me with. Been picking up equipment for a small home workshop (planer, jointer, bandsaw, belt/spindle sander, etc) and this is the planer that I really wanted after reading more reviews and watching more videos than I can remember. How are y'all's experiences with this planer?
  3. My wife picked this hammer drill/driver for me a couple of weeks ago. So far I've used it a couple of times drilling holes in cabinets with varying hole saws. Drill is incredibly powerful compared to my other brushless Ridgid drills which are no slouches. Heard about issues with the clutch loosening during use but so far haven't noticed this. Battery fit (the 3.0 Octane battery that was included in the kit) is a bit off compared to my other Ridgid drills and impact drivers. Even when snapped in the battery has a little more than 1/8" of forward/backwards movement. It's not loose and you have to try to move it. Hasn't caused an issue with performance so it's just something for me to keep an eye on. All in all, the drill is a savage so far. Definitely utilize the auxiliary handle when using hole saws because if the hole saw gets stuck you'll pray that your grip lets go before your arm gets twisted off. Great addition to my deep Ridgid cordless platform.

    If you have a Farm and Fleet I've seen them just selling belt clips, I'm sure they are the newer style

    Metabo Paint Remover LF 724 s

    Try a test piece before you use it on your main project to get a feel and depth removal, i don't have one but from what I've seen it look like a type of planer but i would be careful with gouging the surface

    a fold out table like the Syscart would be nice. I'm thinking about buying just the table and adding it to my packout boxes, or I just may make something similar https://www.festoolproducts.com/festool-203802-mobile-mft-work-table-set-w-extension-table-mw-1000.html?utm_source=google_shopping&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI8Zz3m8GZ4QIVmI3ICh1N7QkkEAQYAiABEgKIvPD_BwE

    Packout wish list: - 10” Tote that has fixed pockets. - Compact Packout Backpack - removable shallow parts organizer that fits into wheeled box - Open top “milk crate” box like Ridgid and DeWalt Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    You are correct, dcb609 and dcb612 have the same profile as the dcb230. New clips solve this issue. After I get out of this appt I’ll add a link so y’all can update gear if needed. Heres five for $20 on eBay. Notice the bend in the clip midway? Fits new batteries https://www.ebay.com/itm/5-PACK-Genuine-DeWALT-Belt-Clip-Hook-20V-Drill-Driver-N268241-N169778/281679695773?hash=item41956b0f9d:g:LO4AAOSwFHZavSiR

    DeWalt DW716R 12" Double Bevel Miter Saw

    Thanks, everyone. I'll check that the blade is true. Then bend the guard back if necessary.

    21700 cell batteries don't fit on tools

    When Flexvolt just came out I got the drill/impact kit that came with the 2/6 battery. The belt clip rubbed against the battery. It was a tight enough fit to scratch the plastic. I would imagine if I had the bigger battery housing that is used for the 3/9 and 4/12 batteries that the batteries wouldn't even fit. I took my clips off and haven't used them since. I wouldn't mind using the clips again but I don't use a tool belt often so hanging the tool isn't needed.

    DeWalt DW716R 12" Double Bevel Miter Saw

    You could also check to see if the blade is true. Maybe the blade got bent in shipping and therefore is rubbing against the metal piece?
  13. Hi I am new here and looking for some advice. I have a Metabo Paint Remover LF 724 S. Fantastic power tool. I am just a little confused about setting cutting depth of tool for removing paint. Could someone please give me advice as to how best to set cutting depth and any other recommendations? Thank you Gerry

    Nope shouldn’t touch the blade. Two resolutions, return it or take the blade of and bent it back in place. I wouldn’t spend money on spare parts as you just got it and a another recon unit can be sent out but I would think you can straighten it out. Big thing is if you do, take the blade out, you don’t want to cause damage to the blade or the shaft.

    All models sold for over a year have had the new clips. issue has been corrected, past tense. If you need a new clip try ereplacementparts.com or eBay. “ sure in time they will modify the belt clips but to retro fit all of my current clips would probably be a couple hundred dollars which just kind of sucks.“ I bought ten clips with screws for five bucks on OfferUp

    Makita 6010d or m002?

    I believe a few older Makita tools were available in their color red from time to time, I’ve seen a few before like that Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Out of all the tool companies I think Milwaukee is the best with this, they eat their woods that all their batteries fit all their tools, when the 9.0 came out this authorized fixes for a few tools like lights it wouldn’t fit in, good on them Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Nice to know they've started to correct this issue. Still doesn't help my current situation though.

    What would you like to see next? Packout editon

    I need a folding handtruck style dolly with the packout clamp system on the base, I keep toying with the idea of bolting one of the thin organizers to one of my handtrucks, but I would really like one that folds up when I'm not using it. I would also like to have several tool boxes like the 8424, but half the width, so I could clamp two of them side by side like the 8435 organizer. Let us not forget the elusive wall mounting plate, glimpsed in blog posts and tool reviews but never seen in a retail location.

    Dewalt clips have already been updated. Only tool that doesn’t fit new stuff is the tough system radio

    DeWalt DW716R 12" Double Bevel Miter Saw

    I have the flexvolt version, the guard just goes on either side but it should not touch the blade Sent from my ONEPLUS A6013 using Tapatalk
  24. I recently purchased a refurbished DeWalt716 12" miter saw from cpooutlets.com. It's been a long time since I have used a miter saw, but I'm getting back into some DIY home projects. When I took the saw out of the box I noticed a metal guide that is in contact with the blade (see attached picture). Is this normal? Is this safe to use? I tried contacting DeWalt support, but they have been difficult to reach. Sorry if this is a stupid question! I just want to make sure it's safe! Any help is appreciated.

    Makita 6010d or m002?

    Hello, I could really use some help finding out why my Makita cordless drill is red! I have the Makita M002, looking around online I can't seem to find any Makita tool named M002, I only find the Makita 6010d. The 6010d seems to be same model as the M002 both on the inside and outside, except for the color of course. Why is this? Is M002 a predecessor to 6010d? Any input is greatly appreciated

    Plans for a Contour duplication tool

    We call them a contour gauge in the US. They're also fairly cheap, under $10 at Lowe's or Home Depot.

    Milwaukee is updating their clips: Dewalt is always slow on this kind of stuff, so expect it in a few years for team Yellow.
