    Makita BHR241 and BL1850B batteries

    My guess is the drill isn’t set up for star batteries, the older 3.0 did not have the protection of the newer packs so older tools won’t accept a star protected pack like the 5.0 Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Hitachi multivolt

    I’m thinking we’ll see a price drop in the next 6 months, pricing is just too high, even the drill as great as it $350 for a drill and no battery? I could buy 3 Dewalt 996s for that price and get similar performance Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Black & Decker Drill Sharpener

    Check eplacementparts.com, it’s a long shot but if they have the tool on there they’ll have an exploded view Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    new Q1 2019 onsite brochure

    Same battery same tool different sticker, 20v here in the states isn’t really 20v unless it’s a fresh unused pack off the charger, test any other 18v tool battery and the results are the same. European laws are stricter than US so they have to market them as 18v, they add the XR (only used for brushless high end line in the states) to differentiate from the older nicad 18v XRP line.

    5.0 dead 😭

    That’s a bummer, should get replaced depending on production date but we’re early enough in the year for the 3 year on the battery Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Matchfit vs t track it’s almost one in the same with what you can do, maybe a little more cost effective with matchfit but I’ve seen some pretty ingenious set up with the match fit, basically a fancy dovetail system. Rails have more options, either one would get dog holes too, with the rails I would worry about getting glue and stuff in them, at least a dovetail just zip the router back through. I have seen his bench vice that thing is awesome Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    sds rotary hammer advise

    Rule of thumb with a Roto hammer is the “rated” capacity of the drill say 1” for simplicity, the sweet spot of that drills power is around 1/2” holes, so what you need a larger SDS Max may be in your favor... Devils advocate is the price worth the upgrade to the big gun if you’ll only pull it out a few times a year, may be better off with a more powerful SDS plus. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    If I ever decide on what I want in a workbench I’ll make it, functional top with dog holes, t track or match fit, vice/clamp mechanism... not sure the direction I’d like to take yet Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  14. For me it’s a balance of what can stay out, go in a drawer or go in a case, I hate having to unstack something to get a tool out, even my festools I’ve long considered a different storage system for them, we are talking about moving so I don’t want to go too crazy right now but the less I have to undig the happier I am, if I can get rid of every storage box I’d be very happy, but I’m also a shop guy Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
