  1. Does anyone know if DeWalt makes a screwdriver or driver bit like the Milwaukee ECX series. Over the years I always wondered what type of screw head were on electrical outlets and switches. I just used a flatblade screw driver on them but it was never a great fit and the blade always manages to slip out. The other day I was watching a YouTube video and the guy mention the ECX is made for those screws so thats what got me looking into this. I have a lot of work left on a upgrade project so this could make life easier. I could just buy the Milwaukee but everything I have is pretty much DeWalt so I’d like to stick with it because I have had good luck with this brand, and I like yellow better than red.
  2. Why not? Why does anyone want a brushless tool? I'd say mostly because of the extended run time, it's a better technology as long as it wasn't two or three times the price. DeWalt would be the first to offer one so it would make it unique in its own cool way. Either way, I'm sure the new one will be just fine with or without brushless. I just hope they design it with the new ergonomic hand grip, it would make a world of difference.
  3. Do you think it will be Brushless? Yes?
  4. Awesome thanks for the heads up, looking forward to it.
  5. I cannot find a DeWalt 20V caulking gun anywhere so I guess they don't make one. Milwaukee, Makita and a few others have them. I know DeWalt use to make a 18V but now that I've switched over to the 20V that doesn't do much good. Anyone know if there's one available or am I right about them being no longer.
  6. Looks like it's meant for use in an impact for sure.
  7. Anyone use these and like them? I've been searching for info on these and it seems they have had mostly good with some bad ratings. The only real negative I've read was that if you drilled a hole and wanted to enlarge it with another pilot point it won't work because of the design of the tip. You need a 135 degree split point taper bit because they self center themselves. If you want to drill a specific size hole first shot they are great. I think they are primarily used for drilling in metal but obviously will work on just about anything.
  8. That's odd, the metal head is rated as being 5X stronger than the 2X black plastic head version. It's designed to take the torque a little better for those tougher jobs. Neither one is a substitute for a right angle drill but will usually work well enough under occasional general use. If you plan on using it primarily for repatedly boring 1.25" holes with spade bits through studding don't do it because it won't last very long.
  9. I did a comparison at the store and hands down the 20V is lighter and the grip feels so much better. I looked for some reveiws on YouTube and this one in particular was pretty thorough. Even the other reviews praised the DEWALT 20V. One of the biggest advantage that the DEWALT had was the great feel in the hand and the way the accessories locked into the quick release chuck compared to the competition.
  10. I think the only time you would be running the cordless tool for extended periods of time would be if you were sanding with it. That function alone would drain the batteries the quickest I would think.
  11. Aside from the DWE315K being 120V 3.0A electric motor is the DCS355D1 20V up to pare as far as in a performance comparison. Can the 20V give the electric tool a run for the money or is it lacking behind some in the power dept. Being brushless the batteries are suppose to give more run time so how long do the 2.0ah batteries last before needing a charge? Does one feel better than the other, the hand grip area is shaped a little different on both.
  12. WOOPS I POSTED THIS IN THE WRONG SECTION, Aside from the DWE315K being 120V 3.0A electric motor is the DCS355D1 20V up to pare as far as in a performance comparison.

  13. How's this, it's the best I can come up with. With this arrangement it can securely hold 4 blades when they are doubled up. In the last picture, if you trim this plastic bead flush and down low enough to clear the knob on the depth bracket it will fit in this spot straighter. The bracket sits offset a little because the knob is contacting the bead. Turning the knob in till its snug secures the bracket in place.
  14. Yah I'd like to know to. I've spent way to much time playing with it trying to figure out how everything fits in there correctly. All those little raised plastic dividers and gaps are worst than a jig saw puzzle. They have to be there for a reason. I'm thinking about cutting them all out and just having an open box and dump everything into it if I don't get this figured out soon.
  15. Is it still advisable every tenth time you charge your Lion 20V batteries to leave them on the charger for at least 10 hours to equalize the individual cells in the battery pack. I cannot find this in the owners manuals with any of the 20V tools I bought. It was recommended to do this with the 18V Lion batteries.
