    Just wanted to say Happy Thanksgiving 🦃....Hope everyone has a great holiday. Being a day to give thanks, I’m thankful for Everyone’s comments,topics,input everyday, especially to Dan and Eric for this forum....😀
  2. M12. Band saw

    Anybody got one ? Thinking about getting it for cutting threaded rod we use....Dewalt has one but the bottom is closed in on the m12....looks nice
  3. FlexVolt DCS690 cutoff machine

    Finding a natural blonde is like finding a 12v Dewalt tool....😏
  4. Some new Bosch tools

    In the same size and footprint of the existing 9ah @kornomaniac ? Battery ..
  5. If it was far and away superior in every way I can see the justification of a much higher price.....kind of like the way Hilti feels about their tools, they are superior and the price reflects that, Now is it really worth that price difference , that’s a question for the buyer to ask themselves...but the tool itself is much better.
  6. Rapid or standard charger?

    I’d say technically maybe....in the real world I’ve never noticed a difference at all...question is ...do you have the time to wait for a slow charge ? Diy, homeowner stuff...Or do your tools make you money. Who cares if a battery dies prematurely if that battery charged fast many many times to make you loot....the money that battery made you by charging faster and being used ,clearly out ways the cost to replace it a little sooner then normal....
  7. FlexVolt DCS690 cutoff machine

    Perfect example today,pouring rain and the masons started the fireplace in the cellar ,laying block...they tried a corded saw to cut block and it kept tripping,so I unplugged them, then they got the gas sthil cutter out, way to much exhaust smoke, in the cellar ,so I told them shut it down, I have too many guys breathing the exhaust....this Dewalt cordless would have been perfect for them, I’m sure Dewalt will sell many of them. Ya there’s other cordless saws but using Dewalts means the batteries go to the other tools also...seems every company is ramping up their game.
  8. DCH293 1 1/8in SDS Plus

    Ya the max can drill larger holes but man oh man did the sds plus 20v kick ass....gotta give props to Hilti with a 5yr old design still whooping ass...of course price is a factor ,ouch.....I do love Dewalt tools for a reason...POWA
  9. Makita DHR400 SDS Max Cordless X2 Rotary Hammer

    Anyone see the sds shoot out on “oz tool”..Hilti reins supreme on a 5yr old sds..of course 2x the price of the other brands.....Makita had the best value and of course the other results are there also....
  10. Possible cordless die grinder

    Thanks for the info....don’t like that step trigger
  11. Ok , I finally gave in. ...🤪

    Ok not completely, I still bleed yellow and black.20v,60v.....But I admit I love ❤️ these M12 tools......next is...soldering iron, right angle hex impact, polisher, 3ah batteries, Underwood light.....I hope a planer and router are coming like Bosch has....
  12. Possible cordless die grinder

    Ya now I know ...I couldn’t. figure out that trigger...stepped hugh? Seemed weird thought it was my tool and hard to press fully....not liking it.....probably going back..
  13. Makita Rear Handle Circular Saw

    I’ll agree with that, it get seriously piled up as you cut...
  14. DCH293 1 1/8in SDS Plus

    Yo .. @Hugh Jass did you see the oz tool review ? The sds plus we have was second only to Hilti but Hilti was twice the price....great tool thanks for convincing me to get it....
  15. Makita DHR400 SDS Max Cordless X2 Rotary Hammer

    Hi @kat..I can understand your point and the points made after your comment. I’m a framer in the USA, east coast. I can say unequivocally that cordless tools are ready and in some cases have more power and perform better then there corded counterpart. Runtime is a concern, so anyone embarking on a cordless platform knows that multiple batteries are a must.and the best blades for the job... ...The problems with tripped breakers and a fight for outlets or no power at all ,lends itself to the use of cordless tools. The convenience and safety factors outway any down side to cordless tools, at least for our companies. Makita makes some great cordless tools, very innovative company. I’m a Dewalt guy, but thought I’d chime in on the performance of cordless tools...Best of luck...
  16. Makita Rear Handle Circular Saw

    Definitely the best Makita cordless saw, if I was a Makita user I’d be very happy. ...but
  17. I love my DeWalt stuff, but...

    I do like Ryobi ...I bought a cordless rigid router to replace my old cordless Ryobi router..then bought the new Ryobi cordless router to replace the rigid router ..the Ryobi has less features but works much smoother and seems like more power, then the cordless rigid...
  18. FlexVolt DCS690 cutoff machine

    Reading the replies , and my own....I think the saw is misunderstood..The blade size is perfect. My buds a roofer {tiles,stone) and mason...this is perfect for indoor use (I think you know why) and outside..brick,stone,rebar,roof tile,cement blocks..all cut much easier and emissions free...it’s not designed for cutting foundations or a hole in one....the same as the sthil battery one is used for, except you can use the batteries in all your cordless tools......there are good videos on the sthil 230.... .....it’s the same thing except in a Dewalt line of ordless tools,
  19. Ok , I finally gave in. ...🤪

    Ya ya @JimboS1ice...Festool is outta my area, of work tools....But ,I’m sure if I was a shop guy I’d be green and grey too ! Lol.....but for now,,Red is the new Yellow [12v]
  20. New Hitachi battery framing Nailers

    Let us know how it works... @jrs5565..at 2lbs heavier then the Dewalt I hope it delivers for you...
  21. Like @Bremon said before . You can just use a plethora of 7 1/4” blades if you don’t need the depth, it’s what I do...also you’ll get more runtime do to the shorter diameter. ..I basically only rip 1/2” to 1” stock...I love this saw
  22. Mmm. Huh ?

    So saw these batteries. I assume the non XR 5ah is the older Bluetooth and the XR 5ah is the new tool connect battery.? The XR 5ah looks bigger, is that for electronics ? I don’t think it’s larger cells .....
  23. Mmm. Huh ?

    Ya to me it’s just weird they make the new “5ah bt “ label look like the the newish 6ah label non bt....except for the little blue symbol. You’d figure a completely new label would be in order emphasizing the tool connect ability...as in a easy to spot label differentiating it from all others..... ....but what do I know....thanks
  24. FlexVolt DCS690 cutoff machine

    Gotta be happy with the Flexvolt line , the tools and power is awesome
