  1. In bright sunlight you are going to have a hard time seeing any laser line. For outside work your are best to use a laser receiver.

  3. Welcome to the forum. My hammer drill may be toggled to normal drilling, so I use that single tool for both types of drilling operations. My drill has been retired to be a spare tool on my boat. The impact driver tool is used for fastener insertion removal. In my case, two tools are required, not three.

  4. Bosch Prr 250 ES Sanding Roller There's the hard way and there's a much easier way. The Bosch PRR 250 ES way. It might be easier but the finish isn't great. I 've tried to sand off varnish from a mahogany door and surround and whilst it's stripped the varnish pretty well that's only part of the job done. I' m now going to have to sand the whole lot with a plate sander as the finish is so poor. Not as good as I hoped but good at what it's for I guess

  5. Thanks for welcoming me I have been on the forum for years but only to read and educate myself. Anyways I bought the saw in may for next to nothing and fully restored everything on it. I have had a welder weld the pivot bracket beads on and i attempted twice to replicate the teeth. I cut the teeth pretty good the second time but there wasnt enough weld built up and in the middle the teeth didnt touch the worm on the rod. I had him add one more layer of weld, but thats it for the rods i got (13pcs $50) I will pick it up tomorrow and see if its enough before my third attempt

  6. Giveaways are kinda broken at the moment with all the fake accounts trying to scam people into thinking they won. It has gotten so bad that krugerconsrruction suspended all giveaways until things get fixed.

  7. That's a hard one to answer as there are many different variables. Really depends on the tool. I don't think one line dominates for every category.

  8. I would guess it has to be a short somewhere on the saw if it happens to multiple batteries in that saw. Just not sure what would be causing that short.

  11. Just like back in the days when you would call the IT department. They would always say Turn it off then turn it back on. That should fix it.

  12. Hi, I have had the same problem but with a 54/60v grinder. The trigger failed and shorted out my battery, now the batteries are only able to be used on 18/20v. I opened the battery and found a fusable link to be blown. I soldered I piece of wire back in the place of the link and the battery work again on 54v. If you are going to do this, note that you are bypassing the safety feature of the battery and if there is a fault in one of your tools again it will not blow the fuse but possibly overheat the battery and run the risk of melting or exploding. Hope this helps.

  13. Been waiting 5 years for this and have had all sorts of fibs from Makita about a cordless framer. I have seen patents for a fly-wheel type design similar to DeWalt. I would rather see a nailer along the lines of Milwaukee and HiKoki as I prefer that design overall.

  14. What do you guys think of the new 40V max system? To my understanding this is just another stab at a 36V battery, correct? I wonder if they'll ever release 18V to 40V adapters like they did the last time. Or release "20V" batteries with the new 21700 cells that work with the 18V tools?

  15. Entirely correct that these are basically just 36V nominal tools marketed as 40V Max to keep them fully differentiated from the older 36V models. I have seen it stated in a couple places that indeed there will be an adapter to let you use a pair of LXT batteries on XGT tools, effectively making them work the same as LXT X2. I don’t know how ahead they planned on that to ensure that said adapter will fit ALL XGT tools, however. For the most part it appears Makita wants this to look like a serious upgrade having made improvements over almost all the tools as opposed to merely recycli

  16. Would have been nice if Makita released the same size of 40V batteries as high Ah on 18v platform and there is no excuse now for them to do it now as I have been asking since 2017 (see my opening post about 21700). Do not see the use of 40V impact driver and combi driver. as for the rest the 18v tools will be much better use with a HD Batteries if Makita ever release some but I no longer hold my breath about. In my personal circumstances I am OK with 3-5Ah changing few of them throughout the day. I would get some 21700 or other high powered batteries if released and beneficiary

  17. Nice to have and own. I have a buddy who swears by the Ridgid system. He says for the money, he's happy with the quality. I love the Milwaukee just because of all the options. Favorite radio, I love the ToughSystem. Wow, does that sound great,

  18. Almost a year after the original post and the modular systems have expanded, with ToughSystem 2.0, additional VersaStak accessories, and a slew of new PackOut options. For better or worse, Ridgid seems content offering the (admittedly very good) basics. I've toned down my tool-related purchases, as there are few things I can reasonably justify buying, but some of the newer modular tool system components are tempting. One thing I find myself using a lot is the VersaStak drill/drive bit kit sold at Lowe's. I picked a couple up on clearance earlier this year and have them attached

  19. Hi everyone, recently bought the DCP580 and love it but have had a bit of an issue. Hit a buried screw and smashed both the blades so I changed them for generic Trend planer blades using the gauge plate provided. The result was a perfectly smooth cut (better than out of the box) but the minimum cutting depth is now approximately 1mm, not 0mm as it should be. Anybody else had this issue? do you have to use the Dewalt blades specified in the manual to get the correct depth of cut (N455909). This would be a bit of a pain as I can only get them through power tool websites with delivery charges.

  20. its not really a clutch. its a spring loaded hammer mechanism. when enough pressure is encountered, the hammer rises, turns, and impacts. if its not hammering, is it stalling? any grease should work inside it.

  21. I feel the auto locking side latches are a step in the right direction. not sure why the front latches are plastic but I don't see that as being much of an issue. I heard about some hinge problems but I never looked into it. The modular storage trays look nice but it is kinda disappointing they are sold separate from the large and xl 2.0 boxes. Right now some of DeWALT's resources are going into manufacturing ventilators to help with Covid but that doesn't excuse a lower quality product.

  22. I think, one of the most important functions for the grinders is anti-jamming protection and speed control. Next, as JimboS1ice wrote, keep most comfortable exactly for you. For example, I like DeWalt brand, but one of my grinders is Makita, because it is very comfortable for my hands.

  23. Made by TTI in China, the tools are the same as a lot of ryobi models also owned by TTI. Milwaukee is owned by TTI as well but higher build quality and parts. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  24. I have a tool bag, but I use it if I need to take my tools somewhere. To store my tools, I try to create tool storage with my own hands. I share my tool storage with you.

  26. I have no direct experience with this particular tool but 40C (104F) isn’t a temperature to be worried about on its own
