  2. I have been on the home automation train for the past few months and have converted my entire home with switches and outlets to wifi and or voice activated ect ect so here is my last convertion (Hack) made my 32" Samsung computer monitor to be a wireless charging base for my cell phone. https://youtu.be/LxD81vvAmYE
  3. my wife mends my socks, what the tarnation is going on these days? how else you think I can afford all these tools?...lol
  4. from my experience with Milwaukee batteries they are smart enough to not worry about charging habits like you had to worry prior to this style. I have batteries that have sat for long periods of time and others that have been sitting on a charger for weeks with no difference in performance or logivity.
  5. just sayin, if you live near a border in Canada the M18 12.0ah batteries are $199 CND that with exchange ($152USD) is way cheaper than the price in USA right now
  6. I would suggest have the person upload a picture of unit with your username on a piece of paper in the pic before i would consider sending any money to anyone or anywhere.....
  7. as a matter of fact your right, I have the 12.0ah battery for this bad boy or my fuel grinder just thought it would look sexy sportin the big boy battery
  8. I know its not a 7 1/4" but it has served me well with everything I've had to cut

    can't wait to start bustin lugs nuts loose with this combo
  10. I tell you what, I had a small 23g pin nailer but could only handle short pins, worked great but for pins with longer length I went with this and am more than happy, I put it to the test with Padauk hard wood and that stuff is a close second to dam near concrete as far as hardwoods go. They are not cheap however the design and power is explained the first time you try it. the 650l which I have also has a lock out at about 8 pins left. Nice feature to have the gun actually lock to tell you your almost out of pins, a lever lets you shoot out the last few knowing you only have a couple left so no dry shots. I agree 100% on this quick review: "Just one more example of getting what you pay for. I hesitated a long while to shell out this much money on a headless pinner, but after reading so many glowing reviews in so many different publications, I splurged and ordered the Grex P650L. Now, more than a year later, I have fired countless thousands of pins through it, ranging from a mere 5/8" to 1-3/4" in length without even one singe failure to feed. I also like the fact that the gun "locks-out" when empty and won't fire. I've had so many other finish nailers just punch away, thinking I'm firing nails when they are actually empty. Saves a lot of time. Lastly, the 23 gauge is awesome. It leaves an almost indistinguishable hole which is almost always just lost in the wood grain and can't be seen unless really looking for them. On paint grade pieces, the paint usually bridges the hole without any filling what so ever. Truly a flawless gun."
  11. just wanted to touch base, been awhile since I have posted.....has been many different things going on and thought I post a couple beasts I have had for a bit. this Milwaukee 1/2" stubby impact is crazy powerful for it's size. Also this Grex 2" 23g pin nailer can sink 2" nails into hard maple like butter......
  12. well over the past 18 months i have been working on my house, completely gutted it installed all new windows that were not the same size so the outside of the house was patched up to match new window sizes, then house was completely covered in a skim coat and new acrylic stucco. completely took out old deck and built a new 2 stage deck and patio. I installed a 10' x 4' wide deck with concrete in front of entrance that matches the picture frame decking here are a few shots. first pic is original windows, and new windows with skim coat. next pic is with new stucco being added and deck and stairs all ripped out.next several pics are the new deck build. next is the concrete pad being installed then on to privacy fencing....and step up
  13. not sure Jronman for all but the M12 Gen 2 drill and impact I have don't have any heat problems nor do they heat up.
  14. that happened to me with skip the dishes, worst thing was it was pre-paid. neighbor was like thanks......lol got my money back but was hungry.....lol
  15. I have the cheaper of the bunch I'm sure with the Bosch starloc and it works fine
  16. depends on how much to replace and how much to repair? it might be a $5 switch I'd get a quote first
  17. go with your budget, truth be told I was happy with the first gen fuel line not long ago. I'm currently using gen 2 stuff and don't see a need to upgrade any time. I will of couse at some point. Since I've got the gen 2 M12 stuff drill and impact I hardly grab the M18 tools go figure
