    Hello - I have another 9.0 Battery and Rapid Charger I'm looking to sell $150 delivered for both. This would be my third one on the Forum (I might have went overboard over the holidays) and I would prefer for one of you to get it before selling on eBay

    Wiss are the best bang for the buck. 9.87 at HD. They last about 5 to 6 years sometimes more. One bolt loosens at the top of the tool but not a big deal. Mine are currently on year 3.

    Well it is essentially done. I need to get some bolts to attach it to the rails as well as drill the holes. I routed out a spot on the lid and the box itself to make it easy to open. I used. 1/4" round bit but might switch it to a 1/2" to get some more grip. Lining up the door is a pain and at the moment isn't lines up exactly front to back. Might try to adjust it when it is on the saw or just trim the back and be done with it. Doesn't have to be lined up exactly. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    Ha. Different strokes for different folks. Wait till you hear what @KnarlyCarl uses his old snips for. In my line of work it's more of I start using the Lenox snips (straight cut yellow handle and with extra long jaws) to cut conveyer belting and guys go "Woah, what are you doing with that hammer? Alright I guess go put the torch away Chuy I guess this fuckin' Einstein-ass-clown thinks he's better than us what with using fantsypants scissors." Still in search of a better way to cut conveyer belting.

    That made me cringe lol. When I was an apprentice i used a journeymans snips to cut plastic strap. "Those are for cutting fucking sheet metal you dumb fuck" believe that was the phrase used. S/m guys will only cut s/m with snips. Unless it's the straight (yellow handle) snips. Those things are garbage anyways lol.

    Yes, one of my favorite tools. I have had this for about 3 years but wish I bought it 30 years ago. Has a V on one side so you can drill pipe too. Your issue is very annoying and have had it happy many times. http://www.rockler.com/big-gator-v-drill-guide-standard?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_term=&utm_content=pla&utm_campaign=PL&sid=V9146&gclid=CNGg453e1NECFYa2wAod47gD0g

    Or in other words, belt tension gauge. The Porsche model 944 has some insane general maintenance requirements. The timing belt requires tensioning about every three thousand miles after the initial routine, and if I recall correctly, it needs to be replaced every 15k miles. It is also used on some of the older serpentine drive belts in other models. Bonus points for anyone who can tell how it is calibrated...

    That old SK ratchet is sweet. I got some old craftsmen 1/2" and 1/4" ratchets when my grandfather passed. I have no idea how old, but there is a definite quality difference with these old ones vs the newer ones I have.

    Well I bought it two weeks ago but it just came in. I had the Milwaukee before, this feels more refined and well balance and I really like the LED work light and the fact that it comes in an lboxx insert and has a little accessory box with an extra collet clamp and a mandrel as well as an extra nose piece. Six speeds 5000-35000 rpm, and both the power switch and speed dial are much easier to move on the Bosch than on the Milwaukee. Also this is NAINA and I purchased it through Axminster Tools in the U.K.

    The only real negative I had about them was the release mechanism would be triggered too easy. Not a big deal if they will reside in an organized toolbox/drawer, but hell for me in a toolbag! I bought them a few years ago to replace some lost Wiss. Went back to Wiss very quickly. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    If i don't have the corded version, I definately don't have the cordless version. That is pretty standard with most guys I know. Although most guys I know are in a shop as well. Few exceptions though.

    I will take it if it's still avaible. I love my combo rotary hammer but it's big.

    I wish they'd do more R&D based off of existing tools as much as new ones. Imagine if they'd listen to us about how to tweak or improve refresh tools to make them as perfect as they could be. Seems like every tool has that one little thing that just kills the potential that would be so simple to change, yet every version made from then on is practically exactly the same on the exterior. Take the premium drill line for instance, why the hell are we still messing with those shit gear shifters that barely function when they've already produced tools with electronic ones that are sooooooooo much better? (3 speed impact, 3 speed impact wrench, etc...) I'd pay like $30 more bare tool without question.

    This is true, though it may be more common to reference the drywall tool as a cut out. Albeit I rarely use my cut out tools for drywall. I've always used my cut outs for wood/Hardie siding. I haven't seen others try that with it on YouTube or Instagram with the m18 cutout. I may film some clips comparing its ability or lack thereof to cut multiple different materials with different amp hour battery packs. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Not a bad deal, the only thing i don't like about the milwaukee set, or the dewalt set is the non indicting grip side still is the same color as the indicating grip side, they should have just made the milwaukee grip all black, thats the only thing that kept me from picking them up

    We get 24 down and about 3 or 4 up. Typically it's around 27 or so down, fast enough I guess. As long as the porn doesn't buffer I'm good to go...
