  1. Toughsystem boxes

    β€œA few” πŸ˜‚
  2. so whats next in the dewalt pipeline?

    Because the storage team designed the tough system radio and apparently don’t talk to the cordless tool department. 10” was the plan for the 60v max, osha updated table saw regulations; a 10” saw needs a bigger table now. They could delay the product and make a bigger table or put out what they had designed with a smaller blade. My understanding is a 120v 10” hybrid based on the rolling stand model with 32” rip is in the pipe. I expected it to be announced last summer but was mistaken, as is often the case 😭
  3. Only 1 120v Tool

    I'm employed by someone else, yes. I've also subbed out as a one man operation to save other companies money. I've also ran crews of over a dozen people, and know all about hiring, firing, and layoffs. My two points are 1) when it's time to sharpen the pencil and cut costs casting blame in the direction of cordless tools makes little sense, and 2) having employees isn't donating to charity; it's being successful enough to have too much work to do yourself, hence the world's smallest violin.
  4. Only 1 120v Tool

    Buildings have been built for thousands of years. Do Joe's competitors have access to futuristic tools that Joe doesn't that allow them to undercut them? How are other companies making money? How do they manage to pay their employees? Maybe more people should stick to what works and buy into platforms based on proven results and existing product rather than loose promises and projecting their hopes into how those promises will be fulfilled. Meanwhile I'll play the world's smallest violin for you poor guys that have these horrible things called "employees". πŸ€”
  5. Only 1 120v Tool

    The hyperbole in this thread is reaching levels that my rants do when I'm on a tangent. I find it hard to believe anyone is laying employees off or losing bids because Dewalt's FlexVolt line isn't diverse enough. Other cordless platforms exist and extension cords are still readily available. @glass it sounds like a discerning craftsman with high standards such as yourself probably owns or plans to own a TSC55, you know; the industry standard for cordless tracksaws 😝 leave the yellow knockoff for us plebs πŸ˜‚.
  6. Only 1 120v Tool

    Today I learned why whining and American exceptionalism are two sides of the same coin πŸ˜‚. I do think FlexVolt is expanding at a snail's pace but I'd expect that to change in the next year. This year's Dewalt experience seemed like a big push to catch 20v Max up to M18 a bit.
  7. Only 1 120v Tool

    Is there a lot of potential that is left unrealized at this point? Yes. Am I salty about buying 120v Max batteries? No, because that isn't the case. I'm happy with the mitre and hope to see a larger compressor, table saw, vacuum, etc. going forward.
  8. Running List for Dewalt Tool @ TOUGHINSOUTH Event

    We'll see how improved it is before I decide whether I'm interested or not.
  9. 1/2" Impacts

    The 888 is mediocre. Had one and sold it. It doesn't compare well to the Fuel line at all. Fuel impact wrenches are still where it's at for performance I feel.
  10. Flexvolt Rear Handle 7-1/4" Circular Saw

    It's "direct drive" and supposedly has 33% more max output than the FlexVolt sidewinder...it should haul ass.
  11. Soooo so far nice,but....

    Today's it man. I am a bit underwhelmed as well. The best stuff leaked early. Rear handle saw, mower, and possibly compressor are on my wish list, most other stuff either didn't wow me or made me angry (retcon on the rafter hooks! lol, but that's me being selfish.) otherwise it feels like we saw everything bedore. Happy to see a toughsystem drawer unit that doesn't suck.
  12. Possible cordless die grinder

    Makes the single speed M18 Fuel look archaic.
  13. Rafter Hooks on Circular Saws

    Dewalt screwing over early adopters...imagine that. The FlexVolt sidewinder is also getting updated.
  14. Hope Dewalt has something like this in aug

    If the improvement for this saw off of the 7491 is the same refinement that the DHS790 has over the 780 it's hard to imagine anyone being disappointed ??
  15. Hope Dewalt has something like this in aug

    Table saw supposedly is getting bumped to a 10" 120v max hybrid solution. I'd be shocked if we don't see it revealed next month. Supposedly based on the DWE7491RS.
