    Why DeWalt? Why Not?

    The 5 ah will improve performance of these tools. With the drill and impact you won't hardly see any difference in performance. I have a couple 2 ah and a handful of flexvolt 2/6 ah which are more powerful than the 5 ah. The only difference I have seen when using either battery on a drill/impact is runtime. The power isn't noticeably different. The tools you will want a larger battery for are your circular saws, grinders, routers, planners, etc. Basically the tools that need lots of juice to run. May I suggest looking into Flexvolt batteries as well? They work in most 20v max tools including all the ones you listed.

    new Q1 2019 onsite brochure

    Interesting. I guess it makes sense in a way. more balanced but could also be less comfortable to use if larger batteries are used because they might stickup into the users hand.

    Dewalt Battery logo

    The DeWALT batteries at least here in North America got a sticker redesign recently maybe within a years or so. I have no idea if other markets got a redesign. To me it looks genuine but I could be wrong.
  4. Seen this today when checking Makita's website. an x2 robotic vac. https://www.makitatools.com/products/details/DRC200PT
  5. I usually bring cordless stuff on trips like my inflator, heated jacket (during cold months), and impact. Just incase of breakdown.

    Jimbo's New Playground

    Would there be any advantage of matchfit over t track? It is basically a t slot vs a dovetail slot right? I like the idea of both a track system and dog holes. Might be able to combine both into one top? On a side note you mentioned vises. Have you seen Andrew Klein's vise? It looks pretty nice. You can switch between fast travel and high torque on the fly. Also he incorporated dog holes into his vise which anyone could do as well.

    Jimbo's New Playground

    Ah I understand now. I had been thinking this was goung to be your main bench but makes sense for a lathe table.

    What tools did you buy today?

    @D W you got 2?
  10. That is the main reason I like the wall rack I can grab any box in the stack and don't have to worry about removing other boxes in the stack. Also the Systainer drawers or even a custom drawer setup for boxes would serve a similar function.
  11. I have resorted to Tough System wall racks and Systainers for the power tools, casters for the workbench and miter stand, and pre existing shelving/pegboard for everything else to help pack away my shop. It does the job. I wouldn't mind rebuilding/redesigning the preexisting shelving to make them a bit more efficient (and square/not cupped) but I was told I shouldn't.

    I noticed the release dates for the first wave of Automatic Wireless Start tools has been announced. I'm surprised the saws are arriving so late.

    Festop Table Saw Announced

    What I heard it is a totally new dedicated table saw and not apart of the table saw lines that have been available in Europe.

    Festop Table Saw Announced

    Toolnut posted a sneek peek of a new table saw developed by Festool that will include flesh sensing technology. I don't know if it has been confirmed for North America yet but if the rumors are true it will be coming to North America.
  17. As many of you guys might know. @Eric - TIA and @Dan - TIA are working on a new TIA shop/studio. They mentioned Friday Tool Fights might return. I hope they do. I enjoyed watching them back when Dan and Eric used to do them.

    Festop Table Saw Announced

    The SawStop jobsite saw is already a premium table saw. If the features if the Festool are the same as the SawStop then I wouldn't expect the price to be much different. I expect it to include a sliding table which will drive the price up a bit. I don't expect it to be more than $3000 usd at most. I could be wrong though.

    What tools did you buy today?

    My sysrock, guide rail stop, pica dry pencil, and 4 port fast charger arrived yesterday. I also picked up a Tough System tote with handle and a DeWALT DCGG571B grease gun from Builders/DoitBest today. Wanted the tote to keep empty in the vehicle for if I need to fill it with loose stuff from work to use at the jobsite. Beats using cardboard boxes. Also going to use the grease gun for future use on some new equipment I am planning on buying. Neither were on sale but the prices weren't bad.
