  1. Lowes hard to shop at?

    If i want to buy a power tool, I would rather travel 25 miles to the nearest HD than go to Lowes that's 2 miles away. The power tool selection is atrocious.
  2. M12. Band saw

    How well would it cut rebar?
  3. M12 Fuel Impact vs. Surge

    I posted this question and I have since bought a Surge and the Black Friday M12 impact set that comes with the packout box. Both are great. The Surge is definitely quieter and powerful enough to send 3 inch x 1/4 inch tapcon zipping into blocks. Both are great products.
  4. What would you like to see next? Packout editon

    I think it would be cool to see a small desk that you could mount. A dolly that connects the boxes would be great as well.
  5. M12 Light Options

    I know the 2362-20 Lantern/Flood light has 400 lumens. I'm not sure what you'll be using it for, but a couple of those should light up a small area nicely. And it has a USB port to charge your phone, which is nice. I have the m18 version and it has 700 lumens and its really nice for dark areas and even camping. Milwaukee makes great 18v lights, I know you want m12 but, for some serious retina burning light, that would be the way to go.
  6. Heated Gear

    From everything I hear it’s a good idea to get a heated vest and wear a hoodie overtop of it. Keep the heated part close to your body.
  7. Do you wear gloves?

    I usually use gloves for masonry work in the winter. Just the cheap jersey gloves. In the summer i probably should but don’t because I need to “feel” my work and gloves get in the way of that.
  8. Is factory reconditioned tools a good buy?

    I bought two Milwaukee recon tools and they both had issues with the forward and reverse buttons. One slid back and forth with no pressure needed. I pretty much had to hold the selector while pressing the trigger. The other was completely backwards. They also both had the previous owners name scratched into the side. I’ll just buy new.
  9. Milwaukee packout

    Do I NEED a new storage system? Probably not. Is my tough system good enough? Yes. Could I turn down $100 off the PackOut? NO!!!!! Plus the rep was there and gave me a shirt and a bottle opener. Props to Milwaukee!!
  10. M12 Fuel Impact vs. Surge

    I'm considering buying a M18 Surge to go along with my M12 Fuel Impact. The M12 has plenty of power for what I do and I was wondering if they are comparable to each other in power? The most difficult work it would be doing is a 3 inch tapcon screw. I know that the Surge is considerably weaker than the regular Fuel impact, but I figure that someone out there has both tools.
  11. Milwaukee Billet Torpedo Level

    Ok, now I see it. Being computer illiterate, I didn't realize they were videos. When I buy a piece of equipment, I don't buy from a company that specializes in something else. My truck is a ford, not a Nissan. My power tools are Milwaukee, not Chicago, my hunting dog is a German shorthaired pointer, not a shitzu, my levels are Stabila, not Milwaukee. I get companies want to make more money and they expand in order to do that, but Milwaukee bought Empire and they make damn good levels. Why make levels to compete with a company they just bought?
  12. Milwaukee Billet Torpedo Level

    This may be a stupid question, but is it possible that its not the Milwaukee that is off? Maybe the Milwaukee is more sensitive than the other level, hence the bubble looks further off than what it is?
  13. Flexvolt problem

    My m18 batteries stay in my toughbox on the back of my truck all winter. If the batteries can't take the abuse, I'll check into a system that can. So far after two winters they all work well. I guess I'm a rookie too.
  14. Milwaukee Power Tool Deal Thread

    That’s an incredible deal!
  15. Keeping Jobsite Clean?

    I'm a masonry contractor and my jobsites can get pretty messy at times. Usually by 2 pm the jobsite is a wreck, but I always make sure the last 30 min or so are spent organizing and cleaning. A lot of times the mess isn't totally put away, just organized better.
