  1. DeWalt 5s3p XR Pack

    Nice work, and while yes 20700 6ah packs are available, they are rather new and not everyone has some( I do ). Your conversion adds a 3rd row of cells which should give you a small but noticeable bump in sustained output.
  2. Ryobi 3.0ah slim pack, 6.0ah and 9.0ah coming soon!

    This pic was pulled from HD's site
  3. Mmm. Huh ?

    I believe they are the same, no size change, just different stickers, same model #.
  4. Ha, yes its in the HD BF ad!
  5. DeWalt Right Angle Adaptor @ACE

    Me Too
  6. DeWalt Right Angle Adaptor @ACE

    $9.99 in cart, or in store with ACE rewards. http://www.acehardware.com/product/index.jsp?productId=25114936 Handy lil critter, this is impact rated and magnetic. NOT the same as the HD version, this one is better.... Get one they are cheap!
  7. Power Tool Quirks and Oddities

    ,Not mine but my brother in law's...Ugh... Ridgid Stealth Force.... Forward/reverse too easy to bump and heavy compared to a regular impact. I will say it does sound kinda cool, like a R/C car going over bumps.
  8. Pliers?

    Knipex..... https://www.amazon.com/Tools-9K-00-80-Combination/dp/B00KBCM456/ref=sr_1_4?s=hi&ie=UTF8&qid=1510543616&sr=1-4&keywords=knipex+pliers+set&dpID=51Vw2OygVXL&preST=_SY300_QL70_&dpSrc=srch Bite the bullet you'll be glad you did.
  9. Flexvolt problem

    Calling his credibility out like that is, in a kind word, pompous. Yeah @Framer joe is a "super fan" , but he probably owns and uses almost daily nearly every tool in DeWalt's catalog as well as Ridgid and others, I for one take him at his word. I too haven't had any failure with any of my DeWalt tools, I live in a state with some of the most bizarre unpredictable climates in the country with temperature swings of 30 degrees in 24hrs common, am I not credible with my experience? Maybe I just know what to expect when any battery is cold......
  10. Flexvolt problem

    Oh hell I leave my 20v batteries in my truck year round, in Michigan.... been doing it for YEARS.... I must be an amateur. I better go apologize to all my clients over the years for letting them think they hired a Pro.
  11. I have a (very) younger brother that's chosen to get his act together but can't get a job at all, when I can, I have him help on some of my side projects and occasionally as needed with my company. Kid works his ass off for me, and when I can I pass my unneeded tools to him. I'd suggest if you get rid of your tools give them to someone who needs them and will use them to put food on the table, while habitat is a worthy cause, I'd rather help someone I know.
  12. Upcoming Tools 17-18

    Pulled this pic from HD's product page........ 6ah battery!!! https://www.homedepot.com/p/Ryobi-18-Volt-One-7-1-4-in-Circular-Saw-Bare-Tool-P508/301848641
  13. DCS367B noise

    I've noticed nothing outta the norm with mine, yes there is a bit of a screech, sorta like a R/C car on gravel but sounds fine to me.
  14. Dewalt 12 volt tools are going away

    12v tools are less than useful in my work, the whole "12v does 80% of the work most tradesmen need" claim is just BS in my world. I'm NEEDING 100% of my work done all the time. There isn't a 12v tool out there that has ever met my needs.
