Recommended Posts

Your right, it is awesome!!
i love how all the accessories store on board.
Now I need the stand . I used it today on saw horses.

I also like how much faster and easier it is to raise and lower the blade than the dewalt table saw I have.
Yea the stand certainly isn't anything special but easy enough to move around even with the table saw attached to it. It gets the job done tho.

I picked up the Milescraft dowel jig, a drill bit for it, and a box of dowels from Menards the other day. I also got a couple grr-rip blocks from Rockler. The gripping performance is impressive. I also ordered some led light bars off of Amazon and a pair of Keen insulated shoes.

I bought...okay, I returned a few purchases yesterday.  While I'll continue searching for great in-store tool deals, I think I'll switch gears back to firearms while saving for retirement these next couple of years.  I've realized that my gun collection has shrunk to around 30 or so after a burglary, trades, and sales.  It's time to replace my S&W 19 (stolen), finally buy a S&W 29, and perhaps modernize my rifle and shotgun collection a little.  I can still post them here if you want...they are rather powerful tools.  😀

 

Congrats on everyone's 2019 additions, and best of luck with 2020!  See you guys around the forums and elsewhere.

I actually picked up the dcf880 on a black Friday deal with a free battery and then I had to take advantage of an end of year deal on the dcf894h.

It can't hurt to have both the smaller and the more powerful impact wrenches.  As it stands now, I find myself using an impact driver and adapter for running off nuts that have already been broken loose.

 

I found a DCF880 on clearance at Tractor Supply a couple of years ago but passed on it.  I have both the Fuel 2763 and 2767, but those are rather large, so eventually I'd like to get a more compact 1/2" impact wrench as well as 3/8" and 1/4" tools.  I guess the good thing about having so many different battery systems is that I'm not tied to a particular brand, so I'll likely pick up whatever I find cheap--be it DeWalt, M12, M18, Ridgid, or Ryobi.

Christmas/New Year present to myself.

Runs pretty sweet.

Cuts 3mm, old brushed version does 2mm

And this new one has a 25mm (1") rebate, super handy and one of the main reasons I got it.

Not available in the states yet, but shouldn't be long I guess.

I have done a review on my channel for those interested.

Happy New Year!

I gave in...picked up the DeWalt Xtreme 3/8" impact wrench and a free DCL510 light despite already having two of the lights.  Lowe's is giving away the light (a $50 value) with the purchase of any Xtreme kit.  The impact wrench looks and feels tiny despite it not being too much smaller than a 20v Max impact driver I have on the counter.  Regardless, it fills a niche that I lacked in the tool department.

 

I also gave Home Depot and TTI some money.  They are offering a free tool with the purchase of a 3Ah starter kit.  This kit doesn't include the fast charger they offered a few years ago but it's still a great buy.  Anyway, I picked up the bolt cutters to see how they work.  I doubt they'll be good for the military grade Series 5200 locks I usually cut (those require a lot of leverage), so I'll likely use them to cut thicker wire such as fencing.

I think you'll be happy about the purchase, they're a great compact light weight tool.  While I consider the m12 stubby to be more of a specialty tool, I actually prefer the dewalt xtreme as an every day tool.

I've always had a hard time getting over the $189 price tag for the dcf890, I even made my own dcf886 modified with a 3/8" anvil a couple years ago.  They've been around the $100 mark on ebay for awhile but when I saw one for $80 I couldn't resist.

I ended up pulling the trigger and buying this 8 piece porter cable set. This is the first time I've actually bought any of the tools.

Yup it’s gravity with a 1.3 tip, 1.2 tip and te20 cap so it should shoot smoothly

I ordered a DeWALT industrial rack to store in a storage unit I rent. First time I have ever chosen the ship to store option. I saved roughly $50 by doing so vs shipping to my home. I also ordered a couple Rubbermaid Brute 20 gallon containers. I currently have a couple of the cheap bins which got me by but I need something that will last and the Brutes are legendary. I hope they last.

I ordered the Festool 576676 Granat 60-220 Grit Abrasive Assortment Systainer For 5" (125mm) Sanders. It is only $199 before tax which is a decent deal considering how much everything would be if you got them all separate. I also bought some lids for my rubbermaid brute trashcans, and some blades for my Scag mower. I'm hoping the blades come as advertised. They claim to be OEM Marbain blades so we will see I guess.
