    Flexvolt HEPA Dust Extractor for Tstak

    Me either but I'm not worried about it. I want it because I'm tired of running a cord for my regular vac every time or ditching it and dealing with dust when breakers are blowing and having the remote will be a time saver. I also wanted something more portable for my orbital. I run out of hose when doing handrails and without it I'm blowing brown snots for days!

    I just watched that video. He says that it gets paired with the vac at about 1:18

    Good question. I would hope they have that figured out. I wonder if the transmitter needs to be paired to the vac.

    Flexvolt HEPA Dust Extractor for Tstak

    I bought one of them on eBay yesterday too, I was pretty excited to see it. I had a 15% off coupon so it was 297.50 for me. I'll let you know when it comes.

    Feedback on mid-torque DCF894N-XJ

    Ive been using mine a lot and am constantly impressed by it. Beats my old brushed 20v impact and is half the size.

    Problem with the Flexvolt table saw DCS7485

    The same thing happens with the corded models. They need to be cleaned and lubed periodically or they will wear out. Also be careful not to turn them too high or too low it can strip out the aluminum. Once there is slop in them like you see they wear out even quicker.

    No extended warranty on nail guns anymore (Ireland)

    Every finish nailer I use needs a driver assembly every 50-60,000 nails. Seems reasonable to me, can't expect any nail gun to last forever without maintenance. The triggers also get finicky but I clean them with electric cleaner and put some dielectric grease in. Haven't had one have a problem after that. I'm sure a lot of guns go back for warranty because of these issues. I can't wait for DeWalt to replace them so I just fix them myself. The trigger is an easy and cheap fix and drive blades are just a wear item.

    54v at 4 amps would be the same charge rate as 18v at 12 amps. DeWalt could even push the 20700 cells to 6 amps or 18 amps at 18v for 9ah flexvolts. It would be great for charge times but might wear the batteries faster.

    Dcs355b question

    I feel a strong plastic is better. It will flex instead of breaking and is lighter. Mine takes a ton of abuse.

    It's the heat. Heat kills the cells faster than anything. If you abuse the cells when they are already hot they won't last long. Mine get used hard daily and are kept fully charged most of the time. But I don't store them in a hot place and let them cool before charging if they do get hot. Some of my 6.0 flexvolts are over 2 years old and still as strong as ever. All of my 9's are over a year old. I have 2.0 and 4.0 packs from 2013/2014. Still work great. But look terrible!

    new cordless sander // DCW210B

    I got mine from toolnut.com a couple weeks ago. I think they made a mistake shipping it but I'm not complaining.

    Highest drain tools

    The sawzall isn't too hard on batteries. If you kill a battery fast enough to get it hot you are going to be beating yourself up too. The table saw and chainsaw can get batteries hot if used hard non stop.

    Highest drain tools

    The 60v compressor and table saw can suck down 9 AH batteries fast if used hard. Also the chainsaw can drain a 9 in what seems like a few minutes when pushed hard bucking. My circ saw and grinder can drain a battery fast but typically only get used in spurts so it's never an issue. Easiest would be lights, radio and dcf887 impact. Nail guns run an amazing long time too.

    Freud blade on the 20v (18v) mitre ?

    Small molding that flexes as you cut it and the blind apprentice that just needs to make one cut will change your mind about hook angle fast. Being arrogant will also get you in trouble no matter what you do. Back on subject @Craigh9916 what is the part number for the Freud blade your interested in? I wouldn't mind trying something different.

    Freud blade on the 20v (18v) mitre ?

    You would have to find one made for a miter saw. Every 7 1/4 blade that I tried was too thin and had too agressive hook angles. I use a Makita 40t 7 1/2" blade. It is thicker and made for miter saws. You do have to clearance the guard slightly for it.
