  1. Milwaukee Billet Torpedo Level

    +1 on the GSP great dogs I miss my pointer puppy had her 17 years. Got her my freshman year of high school
  2. Reno's Extreme

    Must be a really northern Canadian thing I live in Detroit and never see that cross the border!!
  3. FlexVolt DCS690 cutoff machine

    For a guy that does pavers this is a nice little saw. That goes great with something like a SDS max rotohammer
  4. Reno's Extreme

    Using a brush? Can't say I have seen that before! I will say I can decently hang drywall I can't mud for the life of me!!
  5. Milwaukee is defiantly trying to charge more for their products now. The free tool deals and such were better a few years ago. You used to get a free 2 pack of 5.0's not its just one.
  6. That's mostly the biggest issue most guys have. I think he was surprised when the big tool companies wouldn't license his technology, but it was an issue of cost people want cheap portable table saws they are on sale 89/99 every black friday at hd and lowes.
  7. FlexVolt DCS690 cutoff machine

    That's not a bad idea for an FD I know the blade isn't as big but being cordless has its positives.
  8. Customer Service - Who is the Best?

    We have an Ace hardware by us it used to be a regional hardware store brand called ACO Hardware. It's nice but their prices and selection can be lacking at times.
  9. What tools did you buy today?

    Dang enough impact wrenches!!!!
  10. FlexVolt DCS690 cutoff machine

    Sthil might be the standard for a cutoff saw, but Dewalt is a mass market tool company someone might be willing to add this to their stable of tools compared to investing in a Sthil setup gas or battery powered.
  11. Ryobi 3.0ah slim pack, 6.0ah and 9.0ah coming soon!

    Hrmm, odd Russia of all places is getting it first
  12. Ryobi 3.0ah slim pack, 6.0ah and 9.0ah coming soon!

    I made a FB comment about what happened to the new batteries. The linked a video eric and dan did on the new vacuum, and I was like what happened to the packs you teased at an event awhile ago. They were like we cant' talk about new products.
  13. Ryobi 3.0ah slim pack, 6.0ah and 9.0ah coming soon!

    I really wonder what happened with the higher capacity batteries. Home Depot just wasn't willing to buy them or what?
  14. New Dewalt air drill

    Yea you should feel hear a ratcheting sound locking the bit in.
  15. Makita Battery cell 20700

    Sync lock seems to be mostly helping with job site shrinkage not for full blown theft.
  16. Makita Battery cell 20700

    I have heard tool theft is a huge issue in the UK right now
  17. New type of naval warfare?

    No one linked Danger Zone!?!?
  18. Like Jimbo mentioned tear out could be an issue. I would drill a pilot hole first and partially drill both sides first and then pick one side to punch through. Another method is putting a small piece of wood behind the hole your drilling that also helps with tear out.
  19. I wonder how many of these they have in stock!! The recon sale is kinda weird though its like one tool a day. This is a pretty specific tool though even for Festool. https://checkout.shopify.com/21966925/checkouts/efd6b7f120a0595742eabdfc8703c86f?channel=buy_button&mc_cid=999fd1c8d1&mc_eid=93756d9b88&utm_campaign=999fd1c8d1-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2017_11_07&utm_medium=email&utm_source=FestoolRecon&utm_term=0_29355aa66c-999fd1c8d1-79608601
  20. so whats next in the dewalt pipeline?

    Wow, surprised on the radio for T-stacks
  21. ToolNut Flexvolt battery

    Yea I'm sure that hit deal sites and all the tool blogs. I used to write tool deals for the TIA main page, but it was hard because a good chunk are time or inventory limited. Lets be honest the stuff in the Ad's isn't that great
  22. Accessories for GOP12v

    Yea it might be tough finding what you want right now Starlock is new to market and a proprietary system, so any accessories have to be licensed. Part of the reason for Starlock was to lock people in to higher priced accessories
  23. Hearth Pad Part Deuce

    Looks great. I'm spoiled with having natural gas heat though. I know most people have ditched fuel or or propane though as the prices can be volatile when you least expect it.
  24. It looks pretty cool and propane is nice because it never goes bad. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Ryobi-900-Watt-Propane-Powered-Inverter-Generator-RYi911LP/302703564?keyword=900+watt+ryobi
