    What will Makita come out with next?

    @SchenzhenSpecial I think everything on there except maybe the lasers are on the market in Canada. It’s likely quite affordable for you to import from here and not have to ship it over an ocean. Plus our dollar is quite weak against yours. Otherwise if you’re patient you’ll probably get stuff with piles of free batteries or other promos that Makita seems to rarely do anywhere in the world outside of the continental states.

    Pretty odd that one of his major complaints was the colour of the plastic not being the “correct red”. Must be a decent chainsaw if all you can complain about is the shade of the dye and that you can rip a tiny wire apart if you tear the thing down for your drooling fans.

    Available in a month and a half? We could probably give Makita the benefit of a doubt and wait until we see where street prices land before giving them too much grief. They have plenty of other SKUs that are widely available we can scratch our heads over.

    Fest...DeWALT price increase

    Yep, whatever it takes to get the last word in regardless of the disingenuous BS being spouted.

    Latest Rep Gossip

    Clipped head are code in my neck of the woods. I know framers who didn’t know you could shoot full head out of a nail gun. Very much a “your mileage may vary” thing lol. You’ll never see plastic around here because of price. I do agree that Dewalt seems to be working at a snail’s pace lately. The lack of FlexVolt announcements especially make me roll my eyes and think “well, platform flavour of the week might be coming to an end”, even though I know it isn’t. Seriously though. A steady drip of goodies builds more confidence.
  6. The 2804 is the same size as the brushless compact Dewalt, the DCD791. It’s insane. I want to wait to see what Dewalt has in the pipe but a 2803 is in my sights. The chuck was explicitly described at NPS18 as not being a Rohm but it’s supposedly a nice one lol. “Milwaukee-designed”. They’re quite proud. We’ll see.

    Oceania Release for v36 Rear Handle Saw and DTD171

    Probably just that specific unit. The M18 Fuels I’ve had and the 887 Dewalt sink 6” for hours with no real problems (unless you touch bare skin to the housing. The brushless Makitas at work never skip a beat either.

    new Jigsaws cordless brushless (Europe)

    The Makitas are well known. Speaking about the “current brushless” in the Dewalt subforum is where the confusion comes from. I have the barrel Makita. Soft start sucks. Hopefully it doesn’t stick around

    Pre orders?

    One of the stores I follow in Canada received all the High Output kits today, except the table saw.

    New rafter hook?

    It’s like talking about using a screwdriver when drills became the norm. Two anecdotes; my 577 came today. So far so good. Got a parcel from Dewalt yesterday. I had emailed them inquiring about what they could do for us early adopters with no rafter hook on our 575s now that they have an updated model. The parcel they sent me...is a rafter hook. Of course, it doesn’t fit the body of my OG 575, but...I guess I’m still fairly impressed that they at least tried to help and didn’t charge me for it lol.

    New rafter hook?

    And to go back to the 6.5...that atrocious brick.

    Dewalt 18v mitre led shadow line question

    It’s supposed to give a shadow the thickness of the blade, waste on the left or right shouldn’t matter. Sounds like it’s worth popping the blade off and investigating.

    Why DeWalt? Why Not?

    I’ll have to see what Prime Day has for Dewalt deals lol. The M18 chainsaw is too dear for me.

    Why Milwaukee? Why Not?

    It’s flexvolt with a 10 cell pack instead of 15.

    New Pickup Trucks Coming

    Yeah, diesel is absolutely the Internet darling of pickup truck forums but I’m convinced it’s just the usual elitism you find in many communities over many products. Does Festool have a place in your shop? Absolutely; in specific cases. Is it the be all, end all? No. Diesel pickups are much the same. The Tundra is a nice truck. Toyota doesn’t put as much love into it as they ought to, in my opinion, but it’s pretty sharp looking and quite capable. The Taco is a handsome truck but isn’t nearly as beefy as the competition. Tundras retain value quite well too, so if you’re the type to keep something 4-6 years, you’re golden. If you keep it a decade or more GM has real longevity imo.
