  1. Milwaukee 6955-20 110v on step down converter

    Oh ok, I misread your other post.
  2. M18 Fuel Hackzall ?

    I didn't realize it was that much larger! I want that shoe on my M12s!
  3. Milwaukee 6955-20 110v on step down converter

    Do you have any way to get something from the US? https://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B001BBTZY4/ref=dp_olp_all_mbc?ie=UTF8&condition=all Used for 694 CAD or new for 788 CAD
  4. Hand tool cabinet build... finally!

    Mahogany's sheen is soo underappreciated. I need to pick some up.
  5. Milwaukee 6955-20 110v on step down converter

    You can if you overspec(for safety sake) the step down/up converter but it will be heavy (terrible idea if he needs to move it around) and normally they're pretty loud. They used to be pretty expensive but you can get them for pretty cheap now. I would definitely run it on a GFCI just for the sake of the Chinese converters. Will it really be worth it to ship it to him? It's really expensive to ship to Europe these days.
  6. I don't know where you're getting the Dewalt pricing at because I see it for $399** vs $599. Milwaukee has 2,000 more lumens. i'm not sure about the Dewalt but the Milwaukee comes with a free rapid charger and 9.0 battery. **NM, I found it as a HD special buy for $200 for the Dewalt as a bare tool.
  7. What tools did you buy today?

    Yeah, the color placement, the design and no overmold makes it look like a toy space gun.
  8. What tools did you buy today?

    I love the all black Makitas. The Milwaukee Fuels aren't that bad compared to the non-fuel. Porter Cable is really bad, Dewalt, Ryobi, Ridgid and Metabo look like toys too. Some of the Festools too:

    Great review of the tape measure Of course they do try to get us with looking cool. One brand sure seems to want to trigger our nostalgia about our childhood Tonka trucks.
  10. The Tool(s) That Started It All

    I remember my first tool set, bought by a friend of the family (Who was a contractor) when I was like 5 for Christmas. It had real pliers, screwdrivers, a saw, a little hammer. I think I still have some of the pieces. I still use the hammer when I need a small hammer. I used those tools all the time to help my Dad in the garage.
  11. Home Depot

    I'll start the bidding, $140
  12. Angle Grinder - Suggestions?

    Honestly any top brand's grinder is going to be good. Metabo is considered the best but you can''t go wrong with any other high end grinder from Makita, Milwaukee, either voltages of Dewalt, Bosch. Since you're in the Bosch lineup, I'd go with that. Though, if you're heavy handed the Flexvolt Dewalt will be the hardest to bog down, followed by the Milwaukee Fuel and Makita X2 grinder. I personally wouldn't buy into Flexvolt because it has limited tools that are developed for that specific platform and it's a big battery to use for 20V stuff, so you'll probably end up buying 20V batteries. I like the Milwaukee line personally, it's a large line with basically any tool you could use. Makita is my second favorite, good build quality, good lineup and the X2 series is soo smart that I'm surprised everyone hasn't ripped it off. Dewalt also loses their advantage of availability since Flexvolt is still limited to certain stores. Also, I wouldn't buy into the Metabo line due to a small line of tools.
  13. What tools did you buy today?

    I've heard that before, so we're looking at about $240 shipped? I'll start saving.
  14. Sometimes tools decide its time to revoke a man card, this is photo proof.
