    New Makita LS1019 10" slide saw

    I dont know about these ones with bigger blades, but my LS0815FL is perfectly square, and the detents have no play. I dont see any need for a bigger bladed saw with the long rails on this one.

    How do you guys store bare tools?

    Personally, i move a lot from site site, so having (labelled) boxes for everything is nice. I also keep all of the accessories for a specific tool in its box. When ever I arrive to a job, I take my hand tools bag and my Makpac with a drill, impact, charger, 4 5Ah batteries, bits etc. Then when I see the job, i bring the rest off the stuff I need.

    I've personally bought a box designed for that tool, even if the tool was bought bare. Except for a chainsaw and recip saw, all of my tools live in Makpacs or hitachi equivalents.

    No extended warranty on nail guns anymore (Ireland)

    Few framers I know keep telling me that Dewalt cordless framing guns keep breaking a spring every 10,000 nails or so. They've switched back to Paslode, and one of them is "trying out" a single Hitachi cordless gun.

    New Hitachi battery framing Nailers

    So here are the pics. The case is similar in size to makpac 4, slight design differences but the latches are compatible. The insert is really nice soft foam, but atleast I cant figure out if there is supposed to be a dedicated spot for the charger.
  6. Send it in for repairs. Sounds like something is wrong with the mechanism holding the piston in air cylinder

    New Hitachi battery framing Nailers

    Ill definitely post some photos. I cant find any of the case and the insert. @dwain i think you had one for the review? How was it?

    New Hitachi battery framing Nailers

    Still havent received mine, its just about 30km away, or so the tracking says... Will be here on Monday, hopefully. I can then tell what size of Makpac like case it is, and what I think about the insert, and if the insert will fit a Makpac, I have 4 sizes so i can compare and test. I dont know how much of a thing Makpac is in the states (I see lot of soft bags in the tool review videos), but if you can get them, you could just order the insert overseas.

    What will Makita come out with next?

    Seals on hose and other parts are much more important than pure motor power. I've used vacs with 1000W and 2000W of power and similar design, with the 1000W one having much better suction, due to not leaking and losing vacuum at connection points so much.

    My wife has a Makita DCL500 cordless vac and she loves it. Plenty powerful enough. Motor power is not everything when it comes to vacuums...

    Well, that wouldnt be a problem for people like me who have ten of 5Ah Makita batteries. Then again, I know im in a very small minority.

    X3 or X4 could be useful on something like a backpack blower. But not anything handheld, definitely.

    I dont know in which year you live in or what tools you have been using. Me and plenty of other pros are using as many cordless tools as possible.

    What will Makita come out with next?

    X3 would be 54V and X4 would be 72V
