    What will Makita come out with next?

    LOL 50W. That's a joke vacuum cleaner. I don't even understand how can power tool companies be incapable of manufacturing a decent vac, considering their batteries can output 300-400W. All cordless vacs are completely useless, except the Dyson, which outputs 350W+ and it's almost as powerful as corded vacs.

    X3 and X4 are unrealistic. Way too large to be useful. Even X2 makes the tools very bulky. Like that weird and fugly angle grinder that's larger and has waaay less power than the cheapest no-name corded model equivalent. People need to realise that the cordless fad is not sustainable. Very few power tools are suited for current battery technology. Drills, drivers, and that's pretty much it. Unless you are willing to sacrifice power, runtime and size/weight for the advantage of being cordless..

    Yes, it's the same 4-5mm on mine. Also, 25mm bits don't work with it. You have to use a bit holder adapter for 25mm bits. My older Makita impact will accept 25mm bits.

    Is it normal for the bit to move back and forward in the bit holder of this driver? I have an old Makita driver that holds the bit tight and it doesn't move at all

    It looks like it has the same size as DHS680. How is that sub-compact?

    Belt sander not enough power

    I bought a used Makita belt sander because I needed to do heavy sanding on a large wood table. Model 9911, 650 W. It seems to take much more material than the random orbital sander, but still it doesn't feel like it has enough power on lower speeds. If select lower speeds and push a bit harder on the sander, the motor sounds like it is struggling and eventually stops. Is this normal for 650W belt sanders, or do I need to repair it?

    Question about Bessey clamps

    I think you have a point. But notice that on Aliexpress you can find the 1st style too: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/3-4-and-1-2-Heavy-Duty-Pipe-Clamp-Woodworking-Wood-Gluing-Pipe-Clamp-3-4/32847369541.html In the picture you posted they kind of look more grainy tho. Anyway, I don't really care about their pipe clamps because I have a few from Otoro, which are also made in China (Taiwan) and they are awesome! I just thought that the huge price difference was odd because Bessey says that they manufacture in Germany...

    Question about Bessey clamps

    Same price on Amazon US - 14$ https://www.amazon.com/Bessey-BPC-H34-4-Inch-Style-Clamp/dp/B0012YNJRO Amazon DE has the lowest prices in Europe. In UK it's even higher - almost 50$!! https://www.besseytools.co.uk/woodworking-clamps/bessey-pipe-clamping-set/bessey-pipe-clamping-set-bpc-h34 There's def something fishy going on here
  10. So they make their clamps in Germany, but then how come they sell them cheaper in the US?? Example Home depot - 14$ https://www.homedepot.com/p/BESSEY-H-Style-Pipe-Clamp-Fixture-Set-for-3-4-in-Black-Pipe-BPC-H34/204986131 German Amazon - 26 Euro ~ 30$ https://www.amazon.de/Bessey-BPC-H34-Rohr-Schraubzwinge/dp/B0012YNJRO/

    so basically 'brushless' is just a fad, and soon it will be abandoned

    When is SK209G Makita Green Laser available?

    That's insanely overpriced. What's the power of these lasers? 50mW? You can get a 3W laser from china for like $50.
