  1. A cordless drill/driver isn’t especially accurate. A torque wrench will give you a better result. That being said, you could try calibrating your drill against a torque wrench and note down the Values. Alternatively you can put a long Allen key (or similar) in the chuck and measure how much weight the drill can lift. 1 Nm equates to 100 grams* at a distance of 1m, as does 1kg at 100mm, 2kg at 50mm, etc. So if your drill can lift 5kg at 100mm away from the drill shaft, that setting is delivering roughly 5Nm of torque. *its actually ~101.9

  2. I bought Fusion 360 for one year yesterday for 40% off. I will probably utilize this tool work on furniture plans and also use it for cnc work. I plan to get a Shaper Origin and will use it in conjunction with the origin. I also got a pair of 15 foot quickloader ratchet straps. They are good straps. I can see advantages and disadvantages to the quick loader straps. They stay much neater than other straps and are built well. Sometimes, depending on the load, it is easiest to throw one end of the strap to the guy on the other side. It would be tricky to do so with a Quickloader. Otherwise I

  3. I have used Black and Decker, Bosch, DeWALT, Festool, and Skill branded sanders. My favorites were Festool followed by Bosch. The Black and Decker Was by far the worst sander I have ever used. I hope to never use one again. Festool corded 5 in random orbital for $205 is what I would recommend for a corded option. You can also get the bare tool cordless/corded for $225.The dust collection and vibration reduction are superb on the Festool sanders. Bosch makes a decent 5 in for around $100. DeWALT’s are also decent. I’m not sure on pricing. If you want rectangular or delta pad orbitals you will p

  4. Grizzly Ultimate 14 Inch Bandsaw is a popular choice for a good but not expensive bandsaw. Everyone seems to love it. I had one and it did everything I wanted it to. Brand new its around $550. On CL Ive seen them for around $250-300. 192.168.100.1 192.168.1.1 jpg to pdf

  5. You really need a digital torque wrench. The ring clutch on a drill isn’t precise enough to rely on. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  6. I need a new line trimmer and am tossing up between the new DUR369 36V and the DUX60 36V powerhead system. The DUR369 is listed as more powerful, however the DUX60 powerhead has the chainsaw and trimmer attachments which I’d find very useful. what do people recommends?

  7. I have this saw and it’s great , I use mine with a flexvolt battery which gives it a little more torque but it’s great just on a normal 18v battery ! The size is perfect for everything I need to do it cuts 3x2 with ease and runs all day [emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  8. I noticed that the new grass trimmer (DUR369) has the motor on top, which means that the line is ultimately driven by a shaft, which means some power is lost though the shaft. On top of that, the shaft is most likely flexibile => wears out over time. Cheap Stihl gas trimmers have flexible shaft, while the quality expensive ones have solid shaft. But old Makita trimmers like DUR368 have the motor on top of the line feeder so it drives the line directly, no need for a shaft. Normally this should be more power efficient and more reliable because there's no shaft... but for som

  9. its a nice little saw. very small and compact, which makes it easy to transport or keep in the van. it'd be nice if dewalt makes a saw like it with a bigger blade. 10" would be nice.

  14. It's not here in the States yet. I don't think it's bluetooth so you still would have to switch on the Vacuum and kind of defeats the purpose of being cordless. The sander still would need a hose to hook to the vacuum so you might as well have a cord and a hose so when you turn on the sander the whole rig turns on. Without a vacuum you just blowing dust everywhere.

  15. This looks like a bit of a mean bit of kit and cordless too. Limited market, but nice to see some new tools coming through at last. Through tool dust extraction is nicely integrated. https://products.dewalt.co.uk/powertools/productdetails/catno/DCE800T2/

  17. That is a cool idea and love the cordless solution. The only downside is you still need a vacuum to collect dust, so you are still attached and dragging around something behind you. With most vacuums having an outlet and working side by side with the tool, meaning once you turn the tool on, the vacuum goes on, I am not sure how good the cordless solution is with this tool.

  19. I know the DCS356 is the newer model and has a 3 speed switch. Are there any other differences at ALL? Is there a power or vibration difference etc? The weird part is the DCS356 appears to be cheaper than the DCS355 which doesn't make sense if it's exactly the same with a 3 speed switch. Thanks!! (I know about the Atomic model DCS354. I am not interested in that one)

  20. I agree with you, dewalt needs to pick it up. But Dewalt makes a flexvolt toughsystem dust extractor vacuum for low price $500!!, lol. I just missed one for $250 off ebay last month😥. I own Dewalts greatest piece of innovation the Dewalt Flexvolt/20v Portable Power Station with about 20 batteries (4x 9ah,2x flexvolt 6ah, 2x 8ah, 8x 4ah,8x 2ah, 3ah)so any tool is dewalt cordless; stationary or portable backpack mode. I would buy immediately if dewalt released a double bevel miter but got ridgid for 50%. Milwaukee m18/12 have exploded with new tools, ryobi, ridgid and makita continue to surprise

  21. USMC Mustang: Great reply and I have a couple of questions if I may. Item #2: The reduced run time seems to be the most common complaint for the ZT480s. Have you done the Ryobi recommended battery test of load testing each battery individually? I was experiencing increased Battery Level Meter bars out on my RM480 in the first year of use. Ryobi had me individually charge each battery and then load test them (took them to a local battery shop for the test). One didn't past muster and was replaced. Mower ran (and still runs) better than new. Item#3: I'm extremely interested in

  28. We purchased leaf blower. Soon the leaves will begin to fall off, and I was tortured with a broom and a rake every autumn to put the yard in order. Why waste extra time when you can buy a gadget and enjoy it?

  30. Thanks for the reply! Yea it's hard to find info online about differences for some reason. Maybe there are none? I want the 356 with 3 speed switch just wanted to make sure it wasn't "less powerful" than the 355 or anything like that

  31. I heard there are improvements to vibration. I don't know about more power. It is an improvement to the 355 but not the one I had hoped for. There was a patent I seen awhile back that was almost like a combination of starlock and the open ended universal fit blades used on the DeWALT. Compatible with both systems and everything. That is what I wanted to happen. Also a head that is dampened for vibration like the Fein and Festool would have been nice for less noise and vibration.
