olletsocmit posted a topic in MilwaukeeSo 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...
Make use of your old computer hard drive by salvaging the magnets inside. The magnets are very strong, and can be used for many projects. I hot glue the magnets to my drills. It makes for a nice place to hold screws and bits. When I'm done with the drill, I can simply stick it to a metal cabinet. Step 1: Find an Old PC Hard Drive. Step 2: Open it up. You will need some small screw drivers. In many cases a Torx T9 will be needed. Don't forget about the often hidden screw. Step 3: Once open, remove all the screws that you see. All hard drives will look similar to the one pictured here. It looks similar to an old record player/turntable. The large circular plate makes a good shop mirror. The part attached to the swing arm are the magnets. There will be two (2) magnets that can be salvaged from every hard drive.
