    Makita 4 in 1 drill

    I thought this was a neat idea. Its a 4 in 1 drill/Hammer/driver/impact. I don't expect it to be better than any of the single function drills or impacts, but as a all in one that you can throw in a toolbox for maintenance seems like it would work well. https://www.makitatools.com/products/details/XPT02Z

    Dewalt batteries 18v vs 20v

    I don't understand why so many people get so worked up over the "20V" name. From what I read it was more to differentiate their newer battery platform form the older 18v system. Since they have such a big presence in Home Depot it causes less confusion when a homeowner is buying a battery. they have a 20v tool and buy the 18v battery then complain when it doesn't fit. Like many things in life things have to be dumbed down to the lowest denominator. You know Milwaukee 12v aren't 12v either, yet I rarely see people complaining about that.

    8 gallon dust extractor

    here is a way to make single use bags reusable. Those aren't my pictures but I've done this hack. I use it mostly for saw dust and as long as you wrap the dowel a couple time and clamp it, I dont have any escaping dust. If anything did escape it would be pretty minimal and I would say just add another clip.

    So any new tools coming soon?

    Dewalt needs to step up their vacuum game. Cordless vacuums are probably my favorite cordless tools because they are used on the job, at home, camping ect..Dewalts cordless vacuum is outdated, loud, and doesn't have much suction. I thought it was good years ago but not anymore by todays standards.

    Did you purchase this off of Ebay? I use to order tools only available in the UK from Toolstop.com but it seems that they don't offer USA delivery anymore.

    What will Makita come out with next?

    Looks like a 18v Fax machine. I see the plug on the right side so maybe a 18v power unit that converts to 110 somehow?

    Its about time

    I have the older model and it has plenty of torque but the blade speed is too slow at I think 2700. If pushed too fast you can get it to stall pretty easily. The newer model should be much better and I like the built in dust tube.

    DCC2560T1 Flexvolt Air Compressor

    Your right that would have absolutely worked. It was more about me figuring out the limits of the tools and what types of jobs they are more suited for. I actually like using trim head screws sometimes also. They leave a hole not much bigger than a 15g nailer and actually bite into the wood. Someday when I have spare time I would like to try building stuff with hand tools only.

    DCC2560T1 Flexvolt Air Compressor

    I agree with you in regards to finish work. they aren't replacements just yet for certain projects. I made a dining table out of Hickory and needed to use nails to attach a trim piece to the side of the top. None of the cordless nailers I had could handle shooting 2" nails into hickory end grain. This included the dewalt 20v 16g, the greco 18g fuel nailer, or my buddies Ryobi 18v. I had to use my old pneumatic to complete it. That is where something like this could come in real handy. It should be more powerful than current cordless nailers and it can also be used for other tasks like filling up bike and car tires in non powered areas.

    DCC2560T1 Flexvolt Air Compressor

    Here is a visual of the difference in size between cordless nail guns and pneumatic. I think I like the smaller gun with the cordless compressor over the large gun. These are both 18G.

    Jronviews #1- DeWALT DCS520T1 Flexvolt Track Saw

    I can't speak for the Dewalt and Makita cordless tracks but I own the Festool cordless and it has awesome dust collection with the attached bag. It worked well enough that I never plug in the vacuum. It is nice to make cuts and not have to watch where the cord are while cutting.

    Soooo so far nice,but....

    A little disappointed. I was hoping for a 10" miter saw, a 10" corded/cordless tablesaw, and a vacuum that takes advantage of the 60v batteries. Maybe next year.
