    New on here

    Well I got it back together. Did not connect the mode switch. I will see it that matters. Then will put an inline switch on the wire.

    The dual port ripping fence on page 5 is interesting. Excuse my ignorance but is it just a fancy ripping board? Doesn’t look like the track for the track saw.

    None of the EU 2019 brochures/catalogs released so far include the DCW210 cordless sander. UK online retailers have it listed for pre-order with delivery in April 2019.

    Yea it looks like the 54/60v sds max is the real deal especially compared to the milwaukee. The 1 1/8" sds plus 54v from dewalt catches my attention but it's not available in the US, maybe it's not much different than the 18/20v.

    Distinguishing the older battery style vs the newer one could have been done competently and in fact more succinctly any assortment of ways without disingenuous nomenclature suggesting there was a voltage difference when there isn’t

    New Makita 12V Max CXT Inflator

    I can only imagine it to be some sort of safety compliance issue...they couldn’t have possibly thought it actually made sense

    New Makita 12V Max CXT Inflator

    I've used a strip of velcro cable organiser to keep safety triggers depressed (Dewalt 20V die grinder and Metabo 18V recip saw). One side of the strip is the "hooks" and the other the "loops". All you have to do is wrap it around.

    I was digging through Woodpeckers OneTIME tool archive and remembered this discussion never produced a resolution. Woodpecker seems to recycle their limited tool releases about once a year. https://www.woodpeck.com/one-time-tools/track-square.html

    new Q1 2019 onsite brochure

    The US catalog and web site shows the 18V XRP lithium ion tools, in-addition to the 20V MAX XR lithium ion tools. The linked catalogs from France and Portugal only show the latest XR tools, 20V MAX XR in US and 18V XR in ROW. The absence of consumer confusion and impossible marketing permits the ROW tools to be marked as 18V. The US tools require differentiation so consumers know different products.

    new Q1 2019 onsite brochure

    Kobalt doesn’t have the clout to be considered in the vicinity of the “Big 3” in the first place. Although I wouldn’t mind if they had more clout. Wouldn’t mind a legit Ryobi competitor and their products don’t look bad. In a generic comparison of Dewalt vs Milwaukee or Makita, that 20V Max vs 18V labeling to the uninformed buyer can definitely tip the scales. Countless online flame wars have verified it’s had exactly that effect for probably tens or hundreds of thousands of buyers if not possibly even millions. Then they’re on the platform and committed to it. Tribalism naturally kicks in and the rest is history. A buyer has to either be educated on the non-distinction beforehand or already be watching out for selectively questionable advertising to not be thrown off (which we know there’s a lot of with tools, obviously Dewalt is not the sole offender on these matters). Point is Dewalt knew what they were investing in when they chose to spend the money on different labeling in the US market and they feel the benefits outweigh the costs. It’s not like they were helpless victims to some regulatory body or something. And yeah consumers probably pay a little extra for the cost of that. Just like they do when Milwaukee makes videos sporting their newest models beating competitor’s outdated ones or whatever. It is what it is.

    Using this logic, Kobalt probably comprises 95% of power tool sales at Lowe's here in the States. Their 24v platform offers not only "20-25% more power" but also much cheaper batteries.

    I’m thinking we’ll see a price drop in the next 6 months, pricing is just too high, even the drill as great as it $350 for a drill and no battery? I could buy 3 Dewalt 996s for that price and get similar performance Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    New Makita 12V Max CXT Inflator

    Looks nice other than having to hold the trigger...how tedious. If the thing is smart enough to shut itself off when proper pressure is reached just have a button toggle it on. Inflating a tire will be such a nuisance having to kneel on the ground the whole time. Not a trivial qualm but other than that I like it. Love the digital readout. And so compact...

    Also looks pretty compact. The price automatically means this tool isn’t going to be one of the ones that wins over many buyers looking at other platforms, but in terms of size (including the smaller form-factor of running just a single 10-cell battery) I wonder if it’s actually more fair to compare it to competitor’s 18V brushless units. Still...that price...

    sds rotary hammer advise

    The problems I'm having are the hammer action on the M28 sds has stopped working, so that needs fixing. It's never had a hard life, never pushed beyond its design limits. The other problem is the M28 combi drill, the battery retaining clips are small and of poor design in my book. It's dropping packs, not impressive at this price point. On the subject of battery retainment, I'm finding the Dewalt sliders and Bosch 36 Volt sliders to be the best designs of all the machines I have. In other news I took the Flexvolt sds max out yesterday. Used it for some chases in masonry, a bit overkill for the task, but it made light work of it.

    PTR have a review of the circular saw: https://www.protoolreviews.com/trades/carpentry/metabo-hpt-multivolt-circular-saw/43019/ The final score was let down by the value (too expensive). $359 USD is insane pricing! It's $389 AUD here in Australia, plus they had a recent offer with a free MV battery, so we Aussies are actually getting something cheaper than in the US. They also mentioned it's 3lbs lighter than the M18 Fuel. Pros Excellent build quality Automatic speed control mode conserves battery life and runs quieter in niche applications Outperforms our corded worm drive Lightest among the Cordless Supersaws AC or DC power without switching saws Cons Secondary handle is too small Very expensive at $359 bare No kit options currently available

    Rest assured they make more than enough back in additional sales from Americans who get fooled seeing the “20V Max” vs “18V” for the rest of the market to make up for it
