  1. My DeWaltDW9116 charger shows the "hot/cold delay" code for one of my two 9096 nicad batteries (chinese Vanon clones) but the other battery charges normally without the dot-dash code. this is NOT the dot-dot-dot "replace pack" code. The hot/cold code stays on even at room temperature with the "bad" one. Vanon refused to honor their lousy 30 day battery warranty, but agreed that it is faulty. Does this make any sense? Can a battery fail in such a way as to fool the charger even if it is not hot or cold? Don't bother to tell me not to buy Chinese imitations; lesson learned.

  2. I built some custom rolling Systainer carts to store systainers and small parts. I call them Small Function Carts or SFC for short.

  3. Jammed? If it’s the framer, Loosen the Allen screws so the magazine can pivot down. That will allow the driver to return home. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  4. If you have both platforms, you can't really deny the fact that Flexvolt is superior to M18 in terms of power and runtime as well as battery performance. I still don't know why the batteries are so large though, unless they just look extra large in the videos it's hard to tell.

  5. Will be interesting to try these. As I said a while ago, 18v doesn't cut it. I couldn't even use my M18 grinder the other day without both the 12 and 9ah batteries cutting out after a few minutes of heavy cuttibg rendering the tool useless until they cooled down. My Flexvolt, Husqvarna and metabo never have this problem. Interested to see dewalts response to this. Those packs are huge though!

  7. IMO everyone will eventually be forced to go > 18v for high performance tools. You can really see how Milwaukee have fallen behind with their larger tools as opposed to DeWalt, metabo, Husqvarna etc. 18v just doesn't cut it for consistent heavy loads. Batteries were striding along well once and during the last year not much has changed at all so hopefully we get some big announcements later on in the year or early next year! 8ah just doesn't cut it.
