  1. Need help shopping for tools

    You may want to look up ContractorTalk. I access it from Tapatalk. More recently self employed, I have learned a ton about pricing, contracts, and the trade from CT. Invaluable resource. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Good for you. Nobody else will do it for you. What trade are you in? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  4. Need help shopping for tools

    If you don't have time, you should have money. If you don't have money, you should have time. If you don't have either, should you think about raising your rates? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Was it on here that I saw a 20v Dewalt drywall cutout tool coupled with a DW611(?) router base? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Yeah, IDK why Fastenmaster went with a corded drill on this setup. Cordless would be ideal. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. First Saw, Circular or Table?

    3 reasons I don't have the FV table saw: 1. It won't take a dado blade. My corded table saw does. 2. Occasional use- only needed for very precise rips- rips for framing and fencing can be done with the circular saw. 3. The track saw is more versatile. It can rip anything a table saw can, as well as things it can't- doors, for example. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. First Saw, Circular or Table?

    If money is no issue, get both! I use my circular saw nearly every day. I rarely use my TS, and don't even keep it in the van since I got the track saw. I do home repairs. My saws, in order of most use: 1 Circular saw 2 Oscillating tool (finishes circular saw cuts) 3 reciprocating saw 4 tracksaw 5 jigsaw 6 tablesaw 7 corded skilsaw I would recommend getting the first two saws as well as an impact and drill set first. You really can't go wrong with the Dewalt 20 or 60v platform. That's what I use for a living. If I didn't already have multiples of the tools, I would start with the toughsystem/tool bundle.

  9. My daughter broke a B&D toy tape measure

    Agreed. Just don't ask my wife about the time I let my 5 year old try using and then loading the palm nailer. He gave it a double and literal meaning. Wife not impressed. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Lowes hard to shop at?

    Yes and no. Lowe's seems to have fewer tools overall. But Lowe's seems to have more SDS Max bits and accessories, which presumably are purchased primarily by contractors. I do like the fact that HD has reserved parking for trailers and illiterates, (You'll get it soon) while Lowe's doesn't. HD does seem easier to shop at. Another reason I slightly prefer them is their ability to email me a receipt for record keeping. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    She'll be hurtin' for certain when that thing coils up and smacks her finger. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Flexvolt Batteries

    FV batteries make a HUGE difference on some tools, like the 20v circular saw and miter saw. They make a noticeable difference in the big leaf blower. Strangely enough, I didn't notice a difference with my SDS drill. I can't recall a huge difference when I put one on my dcf899. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. IDK if you are on ContractorTalk, but if you're not you need to be. Search up trailers/organization.Tons of ideas in those threads.I have used a lot of the ideas in my van. I have more tools organized in my van than most contractors around here have piled on the floor of their 7x14 enclosed. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. DeWalt Side Strike Chisels

    Worth it for me. I don't use the serrated side, but I hit the flat side of it with a hammer to sink nails hidden behind lap siding. I set sawed off screws with it the other day so I could run my portable planer over a twisted PT post. It's useful enough to merit a spot in my nailbags, and I don't carry much. It doesn't hold much of an edge, because I abuse it I've sharpened it once in the last three years. I think a cheaper chisel would be a mistake. The side strike is indestructible.
