    Track Saw T Square

    If you bought another track, you could fasten a drywall square to it. $100 mod and you’d probably end up measuring before you cut anyway. I use the clamps occasionally, they work fine. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Favorite/Most Used Levels

    I like my Dewalt. Box levels. 24, 48, 78. Magnetic makes it easy on hinge side door jambs and steel gate kits, and magnified vials makes them easy to read. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    CT may be a better place to ask. Lots more full time/ heavy duty users there with real world experience. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    ToughSystem Trailer BuildOut

    Post your work truck/van thread https://r.tapatalk.com/shareLink?share_fid=106420&share_tid=17364&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Econtractortalk%2Ecom%2Fshowthread%2Ephp%3Ft%3D17364&share_type=t Tons of trailer builds on Contractortalk. Ron Paulk seems to be the gold standard for remodelers. You can find him on YouTube. Acme tools seems to consistently have the best prices on Tstak, And I think their tough system prices are comparable to anybody else’s. They have frequent sales. If you have a Dewalt service center near you, that might be a good place to go as well. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Mercedes Metris - Round 2

    I like your stealth approach. Limo tint would keep prying eyes out, and power doors would be awesome . I think I saw your pictures of tstak drawer units with tools in them a few months ago. It never occurred to me to use them before. My nail guns each come out of the van in their tstak case, but the jigsaw or the 23 gauge would get pulled out in its case, set on the floor, and I would take only the smaller tool. The drawers are great! Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Flexvolt 6 and 9 Ah on the 20v mitre saw ?

    Try the 6AH Flexvolt on your circular saw. You’ll never go back. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Collated nails

    It’s for precise placement. Put it where you want it, then pull the trigger. You can generally put a nail into a hole where you pulled a nail out. (I do lots of repairs) Whatever you do, don’t try to use it to install joist hangers. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Collated nails

    Not an idiot. If it didn’t have the anti dry fire feature, you might continue nailing despite having never reloaded the gun. If you built the whole shop with no nails, then,.... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Flexvolt 6 and 9 Ah on the 20v mitre saw ?

    Try it yourself. You’ll see. Longer runtime of course, slightly higher RPMs. It seems to run a bit stronger, and weight is not a concern on the SCMS. The 20v tool where the FV battery shines is the 6 1/2 circular saw. It’s a different tool with that battery. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Flexvolt track saw

    Agreed. I don’t make cabinets. But do lots of T1-11 on siding and gable ends. Subfloors and trimming down doors. FV is more than precise enough for what I use it for. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Flexvolt track saw

    Although I had to learn the motion of plunging the Dewalt, I didn’t find it too difficult. You could try an exercise program. Just kidding. I’m happy with the FV, works as advertised. IDK if it’s worn, I don’t think so. Never been lubed. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Flexvolt HEPA Dust Extractor for Tstak

    Partnering it with the trolley would give it wheels. Track saw TStak on top would be a great match. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Flexvolt 6 and 9 Ah on the 20v mitre saw ?

    I have the 9 on my 7 1/4” saw. I don’t notice any difference over the 6AH FV. Huge difference between 20v and FV. A friend bought a 2 pack of 9 AH and gave me one. Too heavy to put on anything else, so it lives on the SCMS. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Harbor Freight

    Bungee cords, drop cloths, brooms and trailer balls. Crowbars and impact sockets. An aluminum ramp. Nothing important or vital. That’s all I will buy there. No pneumatic or electronic or electric tools. Even Ryobi is better than the Chinese crap they stock. The only thing I hate more than broken tools are junk tools. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Flexvolt HEPA Dust Extractor for Tstak

    To me, It looks like the height is the same as the large Tstak. You folks see the same? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. Better to wait before rolling it out before it’s ready. Good on Milwaukie. I don’t know if I would hire a plumber that showed up with Ryobi tools. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    New 3ah compact vs 5ah

    2AH in finishing guns, They will run for days. 5 AH in Most other 20 V tools. FV on the 20v saw. High increase in performance is worth way more than the small increase in weight. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
