    Big event coming

    Sent my 2704 in for service and they put a non-carbide chuck on it from a 2703. I like it better and I haven’t had the need to use channel locks to loosen it. That’s been a big issue with a few of our drills. I can’t see wear being an issue, once the chuck is locked down it’s not going anywhere. I think the carbide inserts help it bite more into bits with a round shank but anymore all the bits I use have hex shanks so I don’t see the need.

    That’s a good video, nice to see someone get up close and show the tools a little bit better

    All I saw was for the new drill on Acme and they say July 5th for a ship date

    Maybe that’s been released as well as a budget option. I saw a video of a new compact brushless drill (non-fuel) also released but I haven’t heard anything about it.

    The new drill looks nice with improvements on the chuck, lighting and handle. Any info on the chuck they are using?

    Drill/Driver vs Hammer Drill

    Sorry but I’ve used that ridgid drill and the computer shuts it’s down, wouldn’t let me drill a 3/4” hole into wood in speed 2. I was really disappointed. In comparison my milwaukee 12v drill in speed 2 will even tho it only has like 350 in/lbs of torque. So no matter what the specs say every drill is different. Every ice auger video I’ve seen the guys use a dewalt or milwaukee 18v drill. I’d look at those personally.

    Aftermarket Insoles

    Superfeet. I actually don’t like insoles that are too soft and cushy

    DeWalt equivilant to Milwaukee ECX #1 #2 bits

    I’ve never found a need for these bits especially on outlets and switches where a Phillips tip works just fine

    M12 gen 2!

    I found one other video reviewer who mentions he had the same problem, he didn’t show it tho, just says milwaukee sent him another to test and that’s what he used. I wonder how some of these guys get these tools sent to them for testing. Every video is the same stuff in a different garage except one guy who pets his cat and drills in a frozen tree stump in his front yard lol I’d like to see someone actually use these at work and post a video of that. If I were milwaukee I’d say “ here’s the tool, send us back an x-minute long video of u using the tool at work and we will edit and post the video.” Tool reviewers can still do their independent reviews but at least there would be some video out there besides 15 different guys drilling a 3/4” spade bits into a board in their garage. As as far as the clicking goes... I wonder if it’s the brake. I noticed this and if u watch in the video u can hear the drill brake real hard kinda like dewalt drills do. My drill did this too but now that the issue is gone it brakes smoothly-er like any milwaukee drill does.

    Well I could not get the drill to replicate that yesterday or today no matter what I tried. I guess that’s a good thing tho. I kept running it the other day to where it got real hot and I put it out in my cold truck over night so I don’t know if that had anything to do with it. Either way it’s healed and/or the gremlins got out so all is good. I got video on my phone when it was acting up but it won’t let me post it here. I’ll have to figure out how to do that

    So here’s a quick update. I exchanged the kit at hd for a new one for a couple of reasons with the drill. The chuck had too much wobble it just irritated me. The mode selector collar was pretty loose and would change settings when inserting or removing bits from the chuck. And lastly it made a weird clicking sound when u let off the trigger. So the new drill is great, sort of. The chuck is dead accurate. The mode selector collar is really stiff with real distinct clicks so there’s no issue with accidentally changing settings. BUT!... the clicking is even worse. Right out of the box if u go from full throttle to quarter throttle on the trigger it starts clicking loudly and u can see the mode selector collar start moving/shaking. It’s pretty bad. Now I kept messing with the drill and I found that with a load on the drill, even with ur fingers on the chuck, it doesn’t do it. No load and it’s really bad. I usually don’t care and/or bothered by noises but seeing the collar move with the clicking makes me wonder if it’s fine or not. Again with a load on it it doesn’t do it so I’m going to use it for a few days and see what happens. If It’s not noticeable during regular use then I don’t care, but I do see it as a QC problem.

    Toolbox locks keep freezing!

    Stuck. Sometimes I can’t even push the key in and sometimes it just won’t turn. I’ll have to hold a lighter to it to get it to work. I’ll look that stuff up thanks
