  1. Does that jigsaw have a light on it? i’ve had 4 or 5 18 V Dewalt jigsaw‘s. I like them a lot , but I had to replace the blade holder on a couple of them and everyone I had... the variable speed trigger would malfunction, after a while. I replaced a couple of the triggers, A couple years ago I bought the 20 V Dewalt jigsaw and that has been good so far, knock on wood. By having so many different jigsaw’s over the years ,I ended up with several of the plastic base covers. I ended gluing a 3/4” thick piece of flooring to one of the base plates. this would move the cut , down the blade to a new spot ,that the teeth were still brand new. (hopefully that makes sense ). I always thought someone should make a jigsaw that has an adjustable base height, this would make the blade last much longer. I like the looks of the new fuel jig saw. ill probably pick one up soon. It’ll probably look much better in my pack out cases , than the yellow one does 😜
  2. I took back the junk Dewalt and got the Milwaukee M18.
  3. Ugg... that’s my luck. 🤬 I thought the Atomic ,was the latest and greatest from Dewalt.
  4. I picked up the Dewalt Atomic cordless multi oscillating tool. I have a Fein multi master which I love. I use it mainly to undercut door casings, for when we install hard surface flooring. I wanted a cordless one for convenience , when just doing a few doorways or the rare job where there is no power. i have a bunch of Milwaukee tools but didn’t care for the feel of their m.o.t. or the blade lock. The Dewalt is great ...but it would be awesome if it had a dial for the variable speed instead of the v.s. trigger. It is impossible to keep the tool at a constant slower speed. On my Fein I keep the speed at #2 and the blade last so much longer. High speed kills the blades.
  5. I’m looking for the M18 fuel table saw kit. I have seen it for $449 with battery and charger.
  6. Yes I was at a job yesterday where another contractor was using the DeWalt cordless brad gun. It sounded like it had to wind up each time he pulled the trigger, and there was a delay between pulling the trigger and firing. I’m guessing this is what they call ramp up time) I thought it kinda sounded like a toy.
  7. I have the gen 2 brad gun, I love it!
  8. I saw that last year, but I never pulled the trigger. How do you like the saw?
  9. If anyone sees a deal on the fuel table saw with the 12 amp hour battery, please let me know. Home Depot has had a special of the day, twice now with in the last couple months for $499. At the time, I didn’t have the cash available (that day). I got the money set aside now. I don’t know if anyone will have a deal on it for Black Friday or not. i have been on the fence about the fuel or the corded dewalt with the big wheeled stand for about the same price.
  10. Home Depot has the fuel table saw with a 12 amp hour battery for $499 today only i have been wanting one for a long time but my truck needs brake pads,rotors, and calipers this week.🤬 i hoping it will be on sale again before Christmas.
  11. I have a bunch of M18 Fuel tools. I can’t say I have had a single issue. I use them professionally every day of the week.
  12. I was wondering if you guys might be able to give me some ideas on this little project.I was trying to figure out a way I could make a slide out shelf , for my cordless chopsaw.I normally setup my saw on its stand.I was thinking sometimes I just have one or two pieces of quarter round or transitions to cut , or if it is raining out I would be able to cut the material right inside my trailer .I would like the shelf to be able to lock so it does not slide out while I was driving . The shelf is 24” wide and I think if it slid out 18-20” I’d would begood. The saw weighs 45 lbs.
  13. I love the tool. No more fuel cells, no more cleaning/ maintenance. The lock out feature is awesome ( no more dry fires) The led light is nice. Super clean nail holes, no proud nails, no jamming ... so far
  14. What do you guys use for sawhorses . i just broke one my 15 year old Storehorse brand. I love them... they are tall, lightweight, and take up very little space, when stored in my trailer. Aparently they are no longer made. i looked at two DeWalt models, Kobalt, and toughbuilt. The plastic dewalt ones are very similar to what I had , except mine had a slot across the whole top edge to place a 2x 4 into.
