  1. Tool Cases

    So I bought a super hole hawg, and a deep cut band saw. Just bare tools. But I want the cases for them. Does anyone know where I can buy the cases for them?
  2. hahahha. I saw this & it was actually very informative and supper funny haha. Milwaukee 9.0 teardown/test. Watch and let me know what you think.
  3. Hey guys not sure if this is a big deal or not but I've been noticing over the past few months that my fuel drill is starting to wobble almost like an impact driver does. it was perfect when I first got it but seems to be getting worse. It's not just with this longer extension it's with drill bits, my hole saws, even small or short bits too... I originally thought then a few things were bent but they are not. Everything on the drill seems tight, is this normal for an eight month old drill that's used around the house for DIY? I have attached two videos below, let me know if anyone needs to see anything else. https://youtu.be/wRZ5Bp-vENM https://youtu.be/75b0YpFFyM4
  4. So im from the USA but now live in New Zealand and we usually get tools and really everything at least 6 months after the rest of the world for some reason. I have been looking for a framing nailer, Love the Dewalt one but I would really like to see Milwaukee come up with something to rival Dewalts chordless framing nailgun. Does anyone know of they are going to be doing this in the near future? Or should I just go ahead and buy the Dewalt one. I use both platforms but lean more towards Milwaukee in most cases. Thoughts?
  5. 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...
  6. I was wondering if there is any way to see what "version" of a tool you have based on the serial #. I have a M18 fuel drill/driver combo kit (the 2897-22) and purchased it about 2 months ago now. I think this kit has been out for over a year now. I was reading on another forum they have made new versions/variations since my kit was first released. for example i was told the newer ones have all the electronics inside sealed in silicone. ...are the drill & driver exactly the same inside. if you were to get it today vs if you got it the day it was released? or are there dif versions/builds out there even thou the model # is the same.
  7. Edit/Update: I seem to have fixed it! Replaced 1 of the 2 screws holding the base on, tightened them (nut first then torx screw w/ washers), & used loc tite on them + tightened all screws on the tool. I was just at HD and saw a display Milwaukee Jigsaw on the clearance rack. normally $129 for tool only. I got it for $60! My question/issue is that the base place seems to be quite loose/wobbly... and the arm that you open and close to adjust the angle on the bottom plate is also super loose. you can open it just by turning to tool to that side. Should I return it and forget it ...or does anyone know how to fix this?
  8. Am I the only one that has noticed this? This is the second time I have seen a post about bigger M18 batteries. I thought my 5.0 batteries that came with my fuel set were huge -- Link: http://bit.ly/1OgbLJz
  9. I have the M18 Fuel combo kit which comes with 2 big 5.0 batteries. I want a small one for use with just the flashlight.
  10. I started a thread in regards to what tools will fit in the Fuel hard case. This is a Brand New Fuel hard case for a driver & drill combo. I modified it to fit the Brushed combo kit: 2656-20 impact driver & 2606-20 drill (the most common/popular kit). The fit is 100% PERFECT. I paid $35 for the case shipped plus about 4 hours or so of work. Please let me know if you need more pictures... I am looking for $40
  11. I picked up a M18 fuel driver/drill combo and took off the belt clip and extra bit holder. These will fit all M18 drivers and drills. Brand New and never used. If you do not have a Fuel set, you drill did not come with the belt clip and neither your driver or drill came with the bit holder! -- Looking for $8 each. Belt Clip + Screw: Bit Holder:
  12. Ok so after looking into this more i am super confused by the packages at Home Depot! I noticed that the price for the drill & driver combo kits changes almost daily! Last week alone the one i got went from $199 to $169 to $249....what. And i was just looking on the site and some other threads and started noticing a lot of dif things. This is the normal package - Model # 2691-22 - Home Depot link: https://tinyurl.com/j8ylb8y - This used to come with a free flashlight, but now its only when you buy online and not in store... The is the kit i got 2 days ago, the day after it does not come with the free $50 flash light! - Driver: 2656-20 - Drill: 2606-20 Then i noticed this one (notice the belt clip on the driver is different & its $60 more) - Model # 2697-22CT - Home Depot link: https://tinyurl.com/zfbd22x - Driver: does not tell you... - Drill: does not tell you... ....and there were a few more I will post when i find them. Can anyone help?
  13. This is New today... My drill no others do this. The 18v batters has a little play front to back, but what is bothering me is the play side to side I can move it side to side about 1/8".... Anyone else have this issue? Normal? Note: added short video in post below.
  14. What fits in Milwaukee 2897-22 Case

    I have the Milwaukee 2691-22 kit here is a link to info: https://tinyurl.com/han4ne2 I saw a empty case online for $25 for a 2897-22 M18 fuel case. Here is the info to the fuel kit, this is the case: https://tinyurl.com/hbf3wpm My question is does anyone know if my stuff will fit in this case? Mine came with a soft bag for the case and it sucks. Please help me if you know or have the case at home to try. Attached are pics of the case i want to get for my tools...
  15. Right angle drill

    Does anyone own the right angle drill for either M12 or M18? I am looking to get one and can't decide which line I would like to go with. Any feedback would be appreciated! Thanks, FB82
  16. 6 bay M12/M18 Charger

    Has anyone heard when the M12/M18 charger is coming out.... or has it already? I can't seem to find it yet! It seems kind of ridiculous that I want to buy it (when I own 4 M12 chargers) but I think it could make things easier and less cluttered when working. Any input would be great. Thanks, FB82
  17. While the jacket isn't technically a tool I'd appreciate any insight people might have. I bought the jacket and found the standard M12 lithium battery (model #48-11-2401) doesn't have enough power for an acceptable runtime even on the lowest setting. I found that the battery lasted only about 1.5 hrs on low. Since I don't want to load my pockets with extra batteries I tried my M18 standard size battery (model #48-11-1815). On high I get almost 3hrs but with more battery bulk. To me this is an acceptable runtime but if I could get even more time that would be better. So here's my question: would the M12 XC have more runtime than a standard M18? M12 XC = 3 amp hours - 32 watt M18 standard = 1.5 amp hours - 27 watt Not having an electrical engineering background does the M12 XC have more juice/runtime than the M18? I know there are factors like which heat setting (L, M or H). I typically wear it at medium. Does the 12v vs. 18v have any bearing? Thanks for taking the time to read and comment. Mike
