  3. Two passes for the win. How wide does your dado need to be? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. The place where I get mine uses a squirt bottle of water. I don’t know if they do that on their kiln dried wood, Since they offer that service now. Either way, a little bit of water won’t hurt. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    New Blade Problem

    You can put blue tape where you want to make the cut. You can cut face side down, preferably if you put some zero clearance tape from Fastcap on the saw. You can also score the board first- make a shallow cut all the way across the face before bringing the blade down. Not real familiar with adjusting the light. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I like the 5AH over the 4 because they are the same size. I no longer have any 3 Ah. I have a 2Ah Dewalt slim pack I use on an impact for drywall screws. At most, I’ll send a couple hundred screws. The slim pack worked good on the nail gun the other day when I had to send 70 2” ring shank nails on a Hardie siding repair job. Noticeably lighter.

    DWS7085 Problem

    My Flexvolt blower shocks me. I think it only does it with one specific battery and if I have my trigger finger very close to the base. Intermittently. It’s enough to be uncomfortable, but not enough to make me do anything except mention it in here. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Just saw this part. Ditch the straight edge system and clamp a level on the wood and Rent a beam saw. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I made and used “shooter boards” for a little while before I took the plunge ([emoji2]) on a tracksaw. Easily found on YouTube. I used shelf hardware and made sure they were straight when I assembled them using a straight edge(level). Might work fine for an occasional use tool. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Stupid people will always play stupid games. Much easier to change a battery once a day than to lug around a 10 pound tool. Those people should try corded tools- you never have to change a battery. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Duh, Popeye would use a car battery on a drill. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Framing gun

    ^^^^^ Plenty of room for cordless. Dewalt framers are fast enough for most framing tasks. Deck framing, remodeling, Fence boards, roof sheeting, siding, fascia boards and trim. You can shoot 2” siding nails as fast as you are accurate. Granted, 3” nails are slightly slower. You do have to reload more often, as the gun only fits one rack of nails (21*). If your specialty is lots of wall framing or modular building using slave labor, pneumatic guns are the way to go. For most everyone else, cordless framers are fast enough. No rolling out, no rolling up, and no hose getting tangled while you are rolling trusses. For trim guns, speed is a non-issue. For many, many (most) contractors, there is a lot more time to be saved through organization or processes than through waiting a cumulative 2 minutes per day for a gun to spool up. It’s like complaining about waiting half a second between nails, but then having to make a “quick trip” to the hardware store to the tune of 30 minutes. Or even waiting two minutes for a porta-john while someone is in there. Or five minutes when somebody has to reset a breaker. Digging through a pile of tools and materials in the back of the truck or trailer for five minutes? That stuff happens every day, wasting more time than a cordless gun ever could. Prior to pneumatic, it was 100% hand banging. Pneumatic makes up a large percentage of nails being driven today because it’s more efficient than hand banging. It doesn’t make up a large percentage of nails driven today because it’s more efficient than cordless, only because it precedes it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I’ll do the same thing occasionally. For me, I’ll take the tool inside and set it by the fireplace for a couple of days. It’s worked for a nine amp hour flex volt battery(phew!) And a flashlight. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. They all do. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
