  1. I just had to post that picture, taken today at Lowe’s. Good news on them trying to make themselves more pro-friendly. They only recently started emailed receipts, which helps me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. They Didn’t help this guy. I guess he’s not a pro. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  4. Tstak roller for everyday tools.- circ saw, recip, oscillating tool, drill, impact, etc. 20v cordless. Tstak organizers for fasteners stay in the van. Small Tstaks for each cordless nail gun and its bullets. A few Tstak drawers for hand tools, occasional use cordless tools. 4 Tstak totes for “junk drawers” and for bringing in items to a customers house. All Tstaks, except the roller, are housed in wooden shelves in the back of a 12’ box van. Nailguns or sds drill get stacked on top of the roller and rolled to whatever part of the house I am working on. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. No, you can’t convert a 33* nailer to a 21* nailer. Everything is different. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  8. 2 speeds, make sure it’s on speed 2 if sinking 3” nails. Threaded depth gauge in the nose. Spin the barrel, the nose extends or retracts. Loosen it to retract the nose and sink the nails more. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. It worked all right repairing subkloor/underlayment in a bathroom yesterday. I hooked it up to a dust extractor to control the sawdust. I think it would also be handy for tile guys. With a concrete cutting blade, You could cut wonder board as well as tile. The dust collection would be very nice. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Look on eBay for a box for your siding gun. Bostitch box may work. If I’m not mistaken the Dewalt is a rebranded Bostitch. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I’m not a big fan. It takes some getting used to, ergonomically. When I peel off old siding, I follow a piece horizontally, using it as a guide to rip the board in half. Oscillating tool finishes the cuts at the ends. Then I work downward, pulling boards off. Making the long rip was awkward. Even with the shoe riding the bottom of a course of siding, it wandered all over. Same thing when I ripped a fence board. Part of it is the handle all the way at the back. Another part is only 2 inches of blade makes for a small straight edge compared to 5” or so. It takes some getting used to, for sure. I don’t know that it will do anything the 6 1/2 circular saw won’t do. The belt hook is it’s best feature. It might be useful cutting in skylights or vents on a roof. Handy when sheeting a roof. It might be handy for retrofitting second story windows, cutting back T1-11 and aluminum nail fins. If you have to make a lot of cuts while on a ladder or a steep roof, this might be a good bet.

  12. I bought it to use on an LP siding job, two story house. I wanted it to trim the lap siding to length around windows and make butt cuts, and I wanted the belt hook feature. Pro- Plenty of power. Surprising amount of torque with a 20v battery. The ability to carry it on the belt is handy. Tough enough to fall off the scaffold. Blade left makes it easy to see what you are cutting. Con- Because your hard is so far back, it’s a bit hard to control with one hand. Even using a level as a fence for a rip, the saw wandered to the right, away from the fence. I also used it on a fence, to cut boards down in height. It wasn’t much help there, as the 4 1/2” blade can only cut two boards at a time. In sum- A regular circular saw following a straight edge is better at cutting sheet goods. it offers more control. A fence/rip guide for your saw is certainly more affordable than the atomic. You could do wider rips, as the Atomic has a small shoe and rip guide. The Atomic has Plenty of power for cutting siding or trim boards on a roof, scaffold, or ladder.it could be handy there. It would be handy for cutting in vent holes on a roof. If you’re looking for a first cordless saw, go with a standard 6 1/2 or 7 1/4. Better capacity and control. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. How thick are the deck boards? Wood or composite? Face screwed? - you should get at least an inch into the joists. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. One of the Tstacks comes with small bins like the Dewalt medium pro organizer. Both small and large size come with lids. They can be pretty handy. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Dewalt. Cordless nailers do everything I need. Home repair specialist. More akin to remodeling than new construction. 21* framer, 30* framer, 15, 18, 18 stapler. Cordless framer is great in the trusses. Stapler is great in the crawlspace. Any of the big brands will offer nearly all of what you need. The convenience of one battery platform is nearly the same as the convenience of no cords or hoses. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
