    DeWalt DW716R 12" Double Bevel Miter Saw

    Nope shouldn’t touch the blade. Two resolutions, return it or take the blade of and bent it back in place. I wouldn’t spend money on spare parts as you just got it and a another recon unit can be sent out but I would think you can straighten it out. Big thing is if you do, take the blade out, you don’t want to cause damage to the blade or the shaft.

    What tools did you buy today?

    You’ll lovely, I love mine. DC is on par with my Festools when used with a vac. I recommend the mesh Mirka pads Ryan, they are cost effective and allow for great dust collection. The dust canister actually works quite well on its own. I have the 5&6” pads with mine.

    Thoughts on cheap plus SawStop?

    Not sure, maybe they save up to buy the most important tool in their shop and they consider the tablesaw to be that? I have a Sawstop and love it. I have the Contractor CNS model and bought it on eBay for a marked decrease but I have a lot of pro level tools as I’m pretty blessed.

    I’ve had the Rolair for five years. The only Rolair I’ve had, I love it, no issues, oil free. The Dewalt is louder but being my last compressor before the Rolair was a Craftsman stacked the Flexvolt is worlds quieter than that. It’s not a Rolair though but I bought it because it’s cordless and I can use it outside.

    I honestly cannot comment, I really haven’t had it long enough to use it for anything to reach than my Grex pinner. It’s a bit louder than my JC10 and I bought this for field work but had to play with it in the shop. I can say I like the machine just fine for what I have used it for and the build quality is really decent. Sorry bro wish I could add more than that!

    Dewalt miter saw won’t work in the cold

    Ha. Move to New England. Few hurricanes, fewer tornadoes, the wildlife ain’t trying to kill you. The worse thing is the driving, but I’ve been to Florida and yeesh.... everything... EVERYTHING.... is trying to kill you! Plus...New England has...Tom Brady. Nuff said. As far as the saw? Beats me bro, have you tried replacing the brushes in it? Also, welcome to the forums.

    Hilti 12v Hammer Drill

    Hey all, Hilti drill, 2 batteries and a charger adapter (not a charger). New, unused it was a sort of gift that I don’t need. It’s the hammer drill kit with the 18/21v charger adapter you just put the batteries on. Shipping included, USA only. $100. You can buy the charger direct from Hilti for about $35 with shipping.

  17. Well guys.....it's been a pretty crazy summer. Spring, we found out we are having our first child, my wife wanted to stay in the home I had purchased 14 years ago and then said "SIKE" and we put our home on the market. My shop sadly, was broken down and my tools up until last week were in storage in some pods. Our new home, which is on a dirt private road, climbing a steady ridge, is located out in the woods and is only fifteen years old. The electrical service was only 100amp. Two weeks ago a guy I know, Craig, came over and added a HUGE sub panel and upgraded my home to 200 amps. Today, I got off duty and for the first time ever, I cracked open a panel and wired in a couple of circuits. These two will feed two lines into my new basement shop! I started these lines with 12/2 wire and 20amp outlets to start the lines. This is actually a big deal for me. As some of you may recall my last shop involved me wiring in the shop and lighting which was great but I had the electrician start a line out of the panel for me. Not this time. It's all me baby. This week, thanks to Eric and Dan and the failed coffee give away, I had a hundred dollar Amazon gift certificate so I was able to put a hundred bucks down on their newest line of tools and what a fantastic DC unit it is going to be. 120amp, two 4" ports, one micron bag.....Supermax' new Dust Collector and it should be in Monday next week and my new Shopfox Mortiser 3/4hp, will be in Thursday. I will be adding some pictures to this new blog but figured I would start with this. Pretty cool stuff. I might be able to make my first born' cradle God willing as we have an expected deliver date of 12/29/16. Not too much to do....paint the nursery, build a shed and frame and wire the shop. Oh yeah....this basement is as dry as my sense of humor. Eventually I might end up in an outer building but bringing down my biggest tools....Powermattic Helical Jointer, Sawstop CNS175TGP36 and Rikon 14" 10-325 bandsaw as well as the lightweight Rikon Midi Lathe and about 600 pounds of Festool was a real back breaker but it's going to be worth it!

    New Shop Underway....Part Deuce!

    With those two table done I will now have room on my floor to actually work. I should have a new picture to post with a clean shop after I run some errands with my Family and get some more shop time thanks to my beautiful Wife taking care of business with our beautiful Son and our Daughter that’s on the way on board...😇 I know the shop shop is a mess but it was really cool cutting down 3/4 ply with an outfeed table...I missed that. Small space but it is a okay, I love this shop.

    New Shop Underway....Part Deuce!

    Haven’t been getting much done because of a lack of room and no outfeed table. Last night I made two new shop tables from plywood. One is a mobile outfeed table, the other though as of this writing is not quite done (I have to add the lower shelf) is a rolling sanding and storage station.
