  1. 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.

  3. 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.
  4. 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.

    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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. Wheres the Flexvolt Vacuum

    I've seen that vacuum in European market but it's the same specs as their current dcv581. They just slapped Flexvolt on it so people know that those new batteries will work in it. Where is there true upgraded vacuum to take advantage of the new batteries and 60v power?
  9. Wheres the Flexvolt Vacuum

    Does anyone know if Dewalt is planning a more powerful vacuum? I like there current little ones but I am hoping for a vacuum that can get closer to plug in power with the flex volt batteries.
  10. New battery?

    The 3ah batteries are the upgraded cells, so they should have superior runtime over the regular 2ah and still be relatively compact.
  11. DCC2560T1 Flexvolt Air Compressor

    Most Battery Powered nailers can't sink 2 1/2 inch brads into hardwoods and sometimes struggle with 2", with the exception of Paslode. So that could be the benefit of this, compressed air is still more powerful. plus you can fit all air guns from 15-23g in a small bag, where battery powered guns are much bigger.
  12. Shaper partnered with Festool

    That says a lot bout what kind of company Shaper is. They want the best and not the cheapest. Thats a refreshing business model.
  13. Gen 2 Miter Saw coming?

    Since Ryobi announced a dual battery 10" miter saw today, could it mean that a dual battery Gen 2 10" miter saw is on its way also from Milwaukee. If not why would they beef up the ryobi and not the Milwaukee? I have the fuel miter saw and I think works really well considering its only 18v, but that also limits it at times and dual 18v would help out tremendously.

    awesome, thanks for the tip.
  15. Rolling Workbench

    rrmcabe: I haven't attached it yet but i plan to put blocks to attach the corners too. rrich1: I am going to mount it to blocks with star knobs so they are easy to put on and take off. I thought about making it the same height as the MFT but that height with the MFT folded height would be about 42" and i felt that was a little too high. If I though I would take it off often to use 2 tables I would have went that route. When I need a big assembly table I will use a centipede sawhorse with a sheet of plywood. The MFT will just be where everything is cut, ripped and routed.
