    Pretty nice deals to be had. They had their Metabo section tucked away in the back. I don't really feel like they gave them a chance. Needless to say there is one less miter saw now! I'll post pics when I get home an open it up. Sent from my SM-N900V using Tapatalk

    Makita EA3201SR 32cc chainsaw

    It finally arrived, my new Makita EA3201SR 32cc chainsaw. $310 AUD delivered. I could have gotten a teal version for an extra $29 at another dealer. The teal model is EA3201S.

    Some more spline-shank bits came. I just can't pass up German-made bits at under $10 each and free shipping.

    Mess of bits ordered from Cripe Distributing through Ebay arrived. US-made goodness, all for $28 shipped. I use mostly square 1's and 2's, and tired of the impact bits coming out of the holder, sticking in the head of the fastener. So, eliminating the bit holder. I use the M12 Fuel screwdriver mostly, so don't reckon I need impact-rated bits.

    Looks like some listings are popping up, the 2721 One Key Sawzall for instance, that have the option of coming with the 9.0 batteries. This could be a cost effective way of getting a pair of the big batteries. The downside to this is from what I'm seeing the standard charger is listed, rather than a rapid charger. Anyone heard or read anything about this? With Dewalt's new FlexVolt fan cooled rapid-charger charging FlexVolt in an hour it would be incredibly disappointing to see Milwaukee take a page from the old Dewalt playbook and put out the standard trash charger that would likely take 3 hours to charge a 9.0.

    There is a big cost difference. The rapid chargers require upgraded magnetics that practically double the cost of parts...from $2 to $4 Maybe they hope people will spend extra money on a new charger, but more people I know will cut their losses andspend money on a new brand. If I were Milwaukee I'd start a trade in program for chargers.

    Roller stand free courtesy of sears. The kreg clamp I also used points on. The gear wrench breaker bars are buy one get one free from advance right now. Tack on a 20% coupon and its less than $17 for both! Also got a little speaker for the garage. Nothing fancy but cheap on best buys cyber sale yesterday Sent from my XT1254 using Tapatalk

    Hey guys, thanks for your input. So I have the makita 7.2, makit 18V and bosch 18V, and Royobi 18V. I need another battery system like I need a whole in the head. I do like the makita setup, because my cordless circ saw uses 2 18V for 36V power. But I really am not trying to get into another system for just one tool, or if it was one tool, it would have to be a Hilti (because they are just so damned cool, I am not gonna say no). So I was thinking about getting the Makita GN900 which takes my existing batteries. But I can't believe that Bosch is not gonna put out a framing/first fix nailer.... Just wondering if more knowledgeable people than me have heard anything. Long and short, I will probably just continue to be tethered to my compressor for framing....

    It was the Super Hawg and the polisher that came 5.0 and rapid charger, and the SH was right when it first came out, last fall.

    So after some more searching I found this....I wish there was an easier way to tell what mine has since it's really difficult to take the original coupler off but I guess I'll have to wait for the lock n lube to come in to find out if it'll work or not Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Power tools need to be respected. Tools like grinders and table saws deserve more respect than others. The older I get the more important safety becomes to me.

    The tool doesn't match the title or box in the background. At least that's all I noticed.

    Hay Hugh, same exact same spot for me too. Was driving 3" screws into knotty pine with an air drill at high speed, and as luck would have it, hit a knot. Screw stopped dead! and the drill slipped and right through my thumb and stuck in the pine lol. Yeah, so no big deal, pulled it out screamed a few expletives and went to the emergency room. X-rays showed no break in the bone but many small metal fragments in the wound. The cleaned me up as much as possible and sent me on my way. Yes the nail does not grow right on that side of my thumb either. Switched to cordless impacts lol and keep my hand out of the way. Lol. John, Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk[emoji848]

    They aren't new from my understanding. They're a rerelease of the old ones that were discontinued.

    But in this case we are going by stated cfm from manufacturers and even if they're within 10% you still know what will move the most air. CFM is CFM. We are at the part of the equation that comes after the "=", we don't need to theorize what the initial values were that lead us there.

    I just went to HD and gotten the Ryobi. They didn't have the Ridgid, had to have it shipped to store. It takes another 3 day. But UPS, USPS, FedEx, always seem to miss the first and second delivery. 99% of the time I get a not that says we attempted delivery. But yet on the time they put in, I'm home. I don't think that they even tried to deliver it. They just write out the note and put it on the door. Or else they knock so lightly, I can't hear them. Anyway, I test them out with a plug. And just return the weaker one.

    So is there some company called BlowTek or something that makes all the blowers for everyone and just cases them in different plastic and puts different battery contacts on them or what lol, all the compact blowers seem the same.

    I've got the framer and the finish gun in 20v, when the Brad comes.....my Ascension will be complete! In the interim though, Red will have to do. Besides with my track record of getting duds I figure I'll at least get my money back if this one craps the bed! But seriously, it looks like a well built tool.
