    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

    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

    What tools did you buy today?

    Instead of posting threads every time we buy something awesome for ourselves why not have it here? So to start off I got tired of my average ryobi jig saw and picked up a Bosch js572ebl from HD. With purchases over 125 you get 25 off. For 250 I got the saw kit with the L-boxx 2. Can't wait to outfit to work! Jimbo Sent from my iPad 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

    Well I haven't been around much past few weeks I've been fairly busy with well... life That being said we signed a lease for a new house this weekend! Best part is my two car garage so we have another shop thread, right now I have no pictures but your not missing anything other than a pile in the corner of my tool belt and some ransoms, tomorrow night I'm moving some tools down in the chaos to start a project build... a bed frame. I'lol show progress of the garage as the shop progresses

    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

  15. 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

    New Makita LS1019 10" slide saw

    I too have a Makita miter, the X2 non AWS, other than a minor detent plate adjustment my saw is pretty true, I’ve been very happy with it, dust collection is on point, plenty of power for cordless. My saw gets a god amount of use like glass showed with his, my detent are rock on solid. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
