  3. Toughsystem boxes

    Too many to hide them from her.......I am just use to when she rolls her eyes [emoji102] as I find a new home [emoji537] for an abandoned tool [emoji6][emoji23][emoji23][emoji23][emoji23][emoji23][emoji23][emoji23] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    I think sales were slim to none, been at least 2-3 years since I’ve seen one at the depot Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  6. so whats next in the dewalt pipeline?

    Tough system radio was out a good year or so before the flexvolt release Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. so whats next in the dewalt pipeline?

    I'd believe a cordless siding gun.
  8. so whats next in the dewalt pipeline?

    Paslode and duofast make cordless roofers (fuel cells) it’s a push down and pull the trigger not bump fire...also reviews say it’s a punch list tool not for roofing a house....I’d buy a Dewalt cordless one just to install windows...
  9. so whats next in the dewalt pipeline?

    I got one about a chemical sprayer not too long ago.
  10. so whats next in the dewalt pipeline?

    I'd assume a coil nailer, I've never heard of any other type of roof gun. Probably no less concern than any pneumatic nailers falling off a roof. I'd guess the biggest holdup is speed and shots per charge (obviously), so I'd think the best form of marketing would be for repairs and small garage/shed jobs. This is solely speculation on my part. A few of the more recent products to hit the market I was asked for my "insight" on are the chain saw and mower, and another more vaguely worded one was regarding the Graco sprayer(and maybe more)
  11. Keeping Jobsite Clean?

    Clean as you go is the only way to go
  12. Metabo 10” cordless tablesaw

    I thought it was just x2 in general? It could be any combination of two 36v or 18v Metabo batteries.
  13. Cordless Tool Trivia

    was a trick question. Milwaukee doesnt have a packout wall rack out or announced yet. Would someone like to go?
  14. I take it my rail is out of square?

    @SetBuilder maybe +/- 1/64-1/128 over 12 in. I did the thing where you make some marks then flip the square over and see if the marks line up with the square and I got it really close.
  15. so whats next in the dewalt pipeline?

    @Bill539 Agreed. tough system compatible cooler is a no brainer. I have also seen battery powered coolers and making one that is compatible with all DEWALT 20v and 60v batteries wouldn't be too hard. @Cr8ondt you talking cordless coil roofing nailer? Would there be any concern about the nailer sliding off the roof and breaking? I'd also like a gen 2 multitool with starlock that has legacy support for the gen 1 accessories. I'd also like it to have 3 led's: one on the front, one on the left, and one on the right. It would make working in tight dark areas easier because there will be light all around instead of just forward. I'd also like it to not only have variable speed trigger but also some kind of variable lock whether it be an addition of a speed dial or something else. Some vibration reduction would also be a plus. Maybe there could also be a starlock plus or starlock max in the flexvolt line.
  16. DeWalt TOOL Connect?

    Tested it out a little. It actually starts at the set rpm and backs it off when it feels resistance. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    “A few” 😂
  18. so whats next in the dewalt pipeline?

    Because the storage team designed the tough system radio and apparently don’t talk to the cordless tool department. 10” was the plan for the 60v max, osha updated table saw regulations; a 10” saw needs a bigger table now. They could delay the product and make a bigger table or put out what they had designed with a smaller blade. My understanding is a 120v 10” hybrid based on the rolling stand model with 32” rip is in the pipe. I expected it to be announced last summer but was mistaken, as is often the case 😭
  19. Makita USA new items

    And a possible reason why it was released in the us now: Sometimes Makita Japan pushes old stock to their subsidiaries. 2018 will give us a new brushless 18v one hand chainsaw. If there is still ALOT of stock of this accessoire left then it gets distributed around the world to try and sell as much as possible before the new model hits.
  20. Makita USA new items

    This thing is like almost 300 euros in Belgium :/
  21. I take it my rail is out of square?

    How accurate is the combination square you are using?
  22. Ridgid pro "tube" tool box

    I've never seen these before, but I wouldn't mind getting two if I ever see them, could be perfect for storing hoses and cables. You might try yard sales and see if anyone is getting rid of them, or posting on Craigslist.

    Haven’t seen these in quite some time, try eBay? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  24. Makita USA new items

    This is a bit of an oddball item that has recently appeared on the US site. https://www.makitatools.com/products/details/196469-5 This is an extension handle for the five inch chain saw, and it has been available outside of the US for years. I bought one from a Canadian supplier several years ago and find it to be somewhat awkward in actual use. It works well enough when at its shortest length, but when fully extended, the saw itself blocks your line of sight and you essentially end up cutting blind. This makes it difficult to use outside of it's shortest extension length. Set-up is also somewhat cumbersome, and although there appears to have been quite a bit of thought in the design, the final implementation seems a bit short of the mark. You have to attach a plastic bar to the saw that holds the switch in the on position, and then slide the saw onto the battery mount on the end of the adapter and add retention screws to hold it in place. This is what allows you to use a battery on end of the adapter itself. No tech magic, just a simple mechanical switch. I might have been truly impressed if they had designed the tool and adapter with a separate circuit that allowed operation without all the extra bits and pieces and set-up time, but as it is, it smacks of a cobbled together science project gone array. In the end, I am surprised that it was ever released here at all.
  25. Agree with the rotary tool suggestion, sanding away the material may be the best way to control the chip out and you can make adjustments as you go. I'd be concerned that a router would do more harm than good to it.
  26. Maybe a rotary tool and just sand the notch out? Or router and then clean up with a rotary tool if it chips? It looks great thus far!
