  1. cut metal roofing

    What tool should I use to cut metal roofing? want a only power tool.
  2. DeWalt Power Planer leaving streaks

    I'm trying to plane a board and I don't have access to a super wide, industrial planer so I'm trying to use my 3" wide, DeWalt power planer to get out all the humps. But every time I plane across the whole thing it makes these little streaks from the edge of the blade. Is this normal? Should I just get a belt sander to smooth them out or is there a particular planing pattern that I need to follow to help prevent these streaks? See attached file. (the wood is white oak).

  4. I have a DEWALT Portable Hand Planer (D26676) and I can't seem to find a dust collection bag that fits the this tool. It's not just a regular circle so I can't just use some adapter that would fit it. Does anyone have a solution to this?

  8. Anyone know Truco?

    I've come across a Stone Saw from Truco Mason Drilling Division, and I need to see if anyone has any details. The model number has been worn off, but I have a partial Serial Number (6720*, the * is because there's something there, but it's too worn to see). It runs on a track, and has a stainless steel housing (pictures coming soon). If this saw is worth the money, I need parts to get it back up and running (it's smoking a fair amount). Any replies with details would be greatly appreciated!
  9. reciprocating saw battery or corded

    i am looking to buy a reciprocating saw for demolition a outside deck. should i get one the has a battery or one that has a cord? (THE BRAND DOES NOT MATTER TO ME)
  10. Hello, I am new here. I made my account especially for this because I am in a great dilema. I received great offers for these 2 beasts. They are around the same price but that does not matter. I am a truck mechanic, so I need powerful, reliable, long-lasting cordless impact wrench. And these are the two I found at a really good price. So, other alternatives are completely excluded. I saw some guy on youtube that has had Milwaukee HD18HIW 610nm torque / 3 Ah battery (I am not talking about FUEL) for about 2 years and used it heavily and had no problem. So, this would have been much choice. Until I found about Bosch's beast, that it has slightly higher torque figures 650NM and 4Ah battery. Theoretically, Bosch would be the winner as it has bigger battery and more torque, but I do not know anything about durability, about its practical power. This is all I am interested in: power and durability, That's all. I would use it mostly for undoing screws. Ok, so that's what I am looking for. Can anyone give me any suggestions? P.S: I have Bosch's GDS 18 and GDS 24 powered by cable and I am really not impressed with them. GDS18 is alright, but GDS24 compared to my Makita TW1000 is piece of cake.

  11. Addicted to Tool Ads

    I’m continually and eagerly looking forward to each and every tool ad I can get my hands on - mostly to see if someone, anyone, has come out with a really great new and exciting tool. Maybe some fledgling start-up company with a clever idea has just found the money to do some serious advertising. Maybe there is a 50% sale on that 13½” helical planer I don’t want to pay $550 for. Okay, that last ‘maybe’ might be a bit surreal, but anyway, I keep looking. Through manufacturers’ brochures, magazine ads, and the Sunday News ads, and online - I keep looking. But, what do I find? Cordless drill kits, cordless drill kits with extra batteries, cordless drill kits with extra batteries and a flashlight, cordless drill kits with extra batteries and a cordless impact driver, cordless drill kits with extra batteries and a cordless circular saw, and on, and on, ad infinitum (no pun intended). I think you get the idea but the amount of newsprint dedicated weekly to cordless drill ads (which by the way seems to be far more voluminous than all the ads for all other tools combined) boggles my mind. How many cordless drills, regardless of what comes bundled with it, can you possible want, find room to store and, even if you could remember where you put them all - can a person possibly justify? Perhaps I’m limiting myself by thinking I couldn’t possible need to use more than two at the same time and really only one at any particular point in time. So, do I have to give away the one I bought last week to make room for a new one this week? Can I possibly find one that uses the same battery, or charger as one I already have? And if I do and I buy it, will I then be able to stop reading cordless drill ads? All the while, I know these cordless drill ads will persist, yet I still keep eagerly looking forward to getting my hands on the next tool ad hoping to find that great new and exciting tool idea or 50% off on that helical planer. Addicted.

  13. What tools to own

    I am starting to work with my dad. He runs his own HVAC business in Georgia. I have to start investing in tools and not sure where to start. I know what hand tools I want, but not what power tools. I am trying to see what other guys use, but it is just such a wide range as they have built their line up over years. My dad is just set in his ways and still uses older tools. I want the best tools for the money, which I am sure everyone does. I really want to stick with one brand because i don't want to have a lot of different batteries. I heard the Lithium batteries have a hard time in the cold. I am in the south, so i am not worried about that. Any thoughts or help.
