  1. While some people seem to have success with knock off batteries, I personally would steer clear. A lot of times the performance doesn't match the amp hour rating like a genuine battery. Then there are some safety concerns such as does it have the technology to not fry your tool or burn down your house while charging. Not saying that they will and I'm sure there are some that are just fine but to me it's not worth the risk. If you go this route I would just make sure to read reviews and try get somewhat reputable knock offs. Genuine batteries alone aren't cheap and more than lik

  2. Hitachi/Metabo have made such a product for their tools. After that Dewalt has one for their 12” miter saw. Haven’t heard of Makita or anyone else doing it yet though.

  3. You can do one of two things to make a straight cut. Kreg has a track system that will work on all most any saw. When I need to make a straight cut, I use a level and clamp it to my work. So if I need to cut a piece of plywood, I use my 8' level (If I am cutting a smaller piece, I use a smaller level).

  4. Most major tool brands have adapters made for other brands' batteries, albeit usually third party ones that can void the warranty or even lead to safety concerns. It's odd that Worx would have a different battery platform between countries, though, as DeWalt and other brands use the same basic battery style regardless of whether the tool is made for Europe, North America, or another continent. The only first-party adapter I can think of is the DCA1820, which DeWalt produces to adapt 20v Max (18v XR in the UK) batteries for older 18v XRP and other 18v pod-style battery tools. Quit

  5. I have a 2703 and 2704 and for whatever reason with enough force you can spin the motor backwards by turning the chuck. I don't think it was always that way and the 2704 can't be spun by hand. Almost like there should be a braking force from the motor but the one no longer has it or it's not as strong. I actually changed out the chuck on the 2703. I tried putting a small breaker bar on the allen first, then tried an impact wrench on the allen, also tried a hammer and none of those worked. If the drill works and it'll lock the allen wrench in the chuck, what I finally did was attach the si

  7. Welcome to the forum. Be aware that chainsaw kickback is a concern when used in this fashion. The tip / blade will be in dirt / rocks, in addition to the wood. Extensive cleaning / lubrication especially on the tip wheel, blade groove and chain will help reduce the wear from this operation mode. Note that another option is mushroom stump removal. I have used this with acceptable results in several instances. For tools like this I frequently purchase used, such as with Craig's List, Offer Up or eBay.

  11. Sears was a Chicago-based behemoth in its day, one that etched fond memories in the minds of many Americans at its retail store height. It's hard to believe that the stores I bought my tools in as a young naive mechanic in, and the stores I found my first tool deals (to include my first Milwaukee [corded, since stolen] tools) in, are now vacant anchors at dying or deal malls. As Eric stated, Sears failed to change with the times. In an alternate timeline they might be the juggernaut Amazon is nowadays.
