  1. glad you like it , i found with mine that the equalizer has more effect on packout when you switch from fm to bluetooth, on my dewalt i cranked equalizer up and left it , i cant do that with packout, have to back off allittle bit, nice birthdat present
  2. for over 20 years tung oil was one of my favorite finishes. i always prefered the penetrating oil over the surfaces finishes for interior work. the furniture i have done with tung oil has held up really well. it depends on what you are using it for. if it is going to be exposed to moisture a surface finish would be better. i prefer varnish over poly. dont like the way poly yellows and becomes brittle over time. the water born poly is more non-yellowing but will still yellow alittle in the absence of sunlight. varnish is naturally uv resistance. recently the waterlox finish has become my favori
  3. if you looked at my last post you would have seen i said exactly that. i own every dewalt radio except tstak, you would have also seen i planned on buying the new dewalt radio, but was giving the milwaukee as a gift. i have both milwaukee and dewalt tools. i just bought the dewalt cordless drywall gun over the milwaukee. and by the way, dewalt is also china. my comparision was done by me, not somebody else. i have actually compared both radios, with other people involved, have you actually listened to m18 or are you listening to reviews
  4. fm reception on dewalt has always been a weak point. milwaukee has much better reception.
  5. as you can see from this picture this could be the reason for my results that differ from sombody else, my dewalt has seen better days, its held toghther with painter tape, and has been used every day since it first came out. i fully respect what other people opinions are, especially in this forum, so much so i had to do another comparison yesterday with the radios side by side at a job site we are doing in the albany ny area. this time i tuned into a local fm station on both radios, i used one of the carpenters, one of the framers, and an electrician, did a blind listening test [they had ther
  6. i bought the tough system radio when it first came out and said it was the best job site radio there was, well this xmass i got the m18 packout radio as a gift. i had no intentions of buying it, i was going to get the new tough system radio, im glad i waited. the m18 beats my tough system. the m18 has alot more power. on my dewalt i had to max everything on the eq to get impact. Im a woodstock era hippie that likes my music loud and with impact. i had to back off on the eg when playing my ipod. with the m18 i have full cd sound on my ipod not the compressed mp3 music where they throw out the
  7. i am a small time contractor in upsate ny. i myself would not have any use for these tools, but love to see this kind of technology come out. these tools are geared toward the mega size construction jobs where i can see these tools being popular. its a small cost for them. these tools are a whole new animal and a whole new battery platform makes alot of sense to me
  8. i agree 100 percent i too have the issue, since i got into the m12 fuel, i hardly ever grab my big dewalts.
  9. i have a bunch of tstak and toughsystem boxes that hold all my dewalt tools. tstak i dont buy anymore, good shop box but doesnt hold up on job site for me, only complaint i have on tough system is the plastic latches, mine are broke, other than that i like them, they have the best best racking system going. i recently got into the packout system when i got into the m12 fuel sysrem, all hard cases, the quality seems better than the other two, love the way they lock together, best system going for that. like other people have said, all have pros and con. tstak are best bang for the buck, follow
  10. i cant agree more, i have most of my fuel 12 volt tools re-bought, they do 80% of my work now, you put the six ah battery on and you you got one hell of a small tool the only time my dewalt 18 volts get used now is when im driving 3 inch screws or more, big lags, or drilling large holes. yeah, the 18 are getting smaller but you still have to have that big brick on the bottom to get the full potential of the tool. the 18 volts are too much gun for alot of the work we do. we on working on a composite deck now, with one inch decking, most of the screwing is hidden fastners [ small screws], but th
  11. was talking to milwaukee sales rep at home depot last week, he mentioned a new battery, big ah, and table saw coming out,
  12. i have both rockets great lights both have metal collars, those look plastic on the dewalt? the older rocket is battery only, the newer one is ac too, love that feature, plus it charges, will take a serious look at dewalt when it has same since i have alot of dewalt 18/20 volt tools.
  13. i stopped at a stewarts shop for coffee around 10pm, backed into a parking spot, came out, got in my truck and noticed my tailgate down after i got home. didnt notice it when i got back in, dont know if taken or lost, i always make sure that tailgate is secure,there was an empty gallon paint container rolling around in back, never fell out
  14. after losing my entire m12 fuel collection, 8 tools, 12 batteries, 5 lights, 4 chargers, two tool boxes, driving home recently late one night in upstate ny, on some very bumpy roads, and not knowing some 50 miles later after i got home, i find myself buying what i already had. with help from the tool guy at my local home depot and milwaukee sales rep. who got permission from his boss to donate a double pack of xc batteries, which i thought was really cool, im slowly rebuilding. take it from me, make sure your TAIL GATE IS LOCKED
  15. lol i havesame problem, for the longest time i bought nothing but dewalt,the tool guy at home depot called me the bumble bee , i was nothing but yellow and black, but then i smartened up, i was buying dewalt just for the sake of buying dewalt, and shut everybody else off, you cant do that today, i make a living with my tools, if i need a certain tool and if it happens to be better than something dewalt has to offer, so be it, i dont care if its red, blue or green. im still loyal to dewalt more than anybody else, and when it comes to buying a new tool i look at dewalt first. When i first starte
