  1. So for those of you who dont already know the Milwaukee tools that we buy in the USA are different then most of the rest of the world. When i say different i personally think ours are lacking in features. For example our fuel cases are red in the USA. Elsewhere they are black and much different. Our hand tools are red and theirs are red and black. This thread is about the Fuel circular saws. Below are pictures of our saws vs theirs, they have the ability to connect a hose and from the videos i have seen have almost zero dust (great for cutting indoors or just not having to clean up). There is Very Little info on any of this online, basically Zero info (this will be the first thread online with comparison pictures & info out there). I will be converting my new Milwaukee Fuel M18 circular saw (2730-20) into a CCS55 (this is what they call theirs). After a TON of searching, emails, phone calls, & becoming friends with a friends friend who lives in the UK who visits me each year... I have found a repair facility who will be sending me all the parts i need. I found out its more than just popping the other side on mine. It looks like it is going to cost be about $40 to do everything (not bad for the ability to use the saw normally or have the ability for dust collection). I know this is not for everyone, but for those of you interested, I hope this helps. Here is a side by side of the 2 saws (I will be converting mine from the one on left to right): Here is a side by side of the 2 kits (United States vs everyone else): This is the main difference a lot of people have been talking about, the better cases they have: Here are a few pics of their cases (refereed to as Dyna cases): ------------- Below are some of the pages I was told are ok to share from the scanned document: I will update this thread as i get more info and all the info & parts needed...
  2. Can a tile saw used for wood cutting (to replace a circular saw if the timber is not too thick)? And of course use a blade for cutting wood rather than abrasive blade. The reason I want to do this is that common circular saws are 165/185mm blade size, whereas common tile saws are 110mm that are very compact and lightweight, easy to operate and great for weekend DIY jobs. Apart from the size, obvious wet cutting features and default abrasive blades, the only difference I've noticed is that the RRP is a lot higher e.g.12,000rpm whereas common circular saws RRP is around 5000rpm So would this be a problem? --- These are couple examples of tile saws https://sydneytools.com.au/makita-4100nh3zx-1200w-110mm-4-1-3-diamond-cutter-saw https://sydneytools.com.au/makita-4101rh-110mm-860w-wet-cutting-tile-saw I also notice that there are some so called circular saws, where the blade wheel size is 140mm, which could sweet tradeoff for my like but just wondering despite the name metal circular saws, can they be used to cut wood with proper wood cutting blade? https://sydneytools.com.au/milwaukee-hd18ms-0-18v-li-ion-cordless-136mm-5-1-3-metal-circular-saw-skin-only https://sydneytools.com.au/dewalt-dcs373n-xe-18v-xr-li-ion-cordless-metal-cutting-circular-saw-skin-only
  3. What do you guys think of these? I am not talking about the nice ones that come with special nice setups like the Dewalt track saw or Festool, but rather ones that are universal. For example I have a Milwaukee jigsaw & fuel circular saw and they don't make any tracks that work with either well as far as i have seen. Are any of the ones like these E. Emerson Tool Co. one's any good? I saw these and they looked nice for the price & come in variety of sizes. Also looks like they come in different track styles -- CLICK HERE - link to a bunch of them

    20V cordless tools I'm waiting for

    After the Dewalt media event 2015 I feel a bit dissapointed with what they showed. Milwaukee had some more interesting tools at their event IMO. Everybody has said that 2015 is the year for Dewalt to shine, but so far I'm not that impressed. What I'm hoping for in the 20V cordless line at this moment is: -Updated jigsaw with barrel grip (maybe brushless, but that will increase the price tag of course) -Brushless, more powerful circular saw -Brushless angle grinder -Brushless compact impact wrench. Take the technology from the new DCF899 and smash it in the form factor of the DCF880 These new tools will keep me on the yellow path and not mix in to team red. Not that I would mind those tools from Milwaukee but I intend to stick to one 18V/20V platform

    Milwaukee 5 3/8" M12 circular saw

    I had the opportunity to get my hands on the new M12 circular saw this past weekend. Honestly, I was impressed with the run time of the saw and the speed. I own the old 6 1/2" M18 brushed version and I don't see much of a difference between the two in terms of run time and power. While I don't think you are going to be ripping OSB all day with it, I do think it has it's place on the site for quick cuts and anchor templates. It will be interesting to see if other companies come out with a similar product.
  7. i have an old skil circular saw model homebuilder and i would like to know what year they made that tool. i have tried emailing skil with no help

    Found myself to the red side with some M12s

    So I'm currently on the Dewalt 20v max line and felt like filling in some tools that I did not want from the Dewalt 20v line and here is why: Fuel circular saw; I wanted a compact saw for smaller cuts and waiting for Dewalt to release a bigger blade size brushless saw for heavier jobs. The m12 will do for the time being until then Fuel rotary hammer drill; I don't drill often in concrete and when I do it's usually smaller holes so the M12 felt perfect for that. If I find myself in need for a bigger one I will get another Dewalt 20v max Fuel 1/2" impact wrench; I simply could not leave that poor guy alone in the store so I let it along for the ride.
  9. I am wondering ig anybody owns or has owned Skil 7 1/4" Circular Saw model #5380-01? I have looked for a review on this saw on youtube and can't seem to find a video review on this particular saw, because the current saw that I have just isnt cutting it anymore. My current saw is from the the 1960's and I am just loooking to upgrade to a newer and better circular saw. Thank You for taking the time to look!
