  1. I am in the market for a wood plug cutter. Does anyone have any recommendations?
  2. Ryobi made tools with a slide on battery? I have only ever heard of OPE (24v and 40v) with that style of battery from Ryobi.
  3. Why not? If you don't like it, just don't buy it. I could see myself getting one or two for stationary tools like the miter saw or wheeled tools the 6 gal. shop vac (it is made by Ryobi, but I have an adapter that lets me power it with Makita batteries). For those applications, weight is not nearly as much of a concern. I don't see why "boat anchor" batteries can't coexist with smaller ones.
  4. I have used their sockets, impact and regular deep well and they have held up well for years. Their pocket hole jig (similar to a Kreg K4 except that it is all metal) has been good so far as has their heat gun (the Bauer one) and the two hammers I got (one framing and one dead blow).
  5. I would say that my cordless 6 gal. shop vac drains batteries like no other especially since it is often used continuously for minutes at a time. My rotary hammer also uses batteries quickly, but that is generally only used in spurts so the battery tends to last longer as a result.

    Battery Adapter

    I used that adapter today on the Ryobi 6 gal. shop vac and it worked without any noticeable problems. That thing is probably one of the highest draining tools there is.
  7. I just got an Incra Miter 1000SE. I got it used in great condition for $100, I'll try it out on my Bosch 4100-09 hopefully this weekend and see how it goes.
  8. https://www.amazon.com/2PACK-AOYAN-Battery-Cordless-Lithium-Function/dp/B07GZ7DJDW/ref=sr_1_49_sspa?s=power-hand-tools&ie=UTF8&qid=1536621660&sr=1-49-spons&keywords=makita+18v+battery&psc=1 Anyone ever use one of these? I have (4) 6 aH knock off batteries of a different design and they work just fine, I am just wondering if I can expect comparable performance from these.
  9. I have been looking to get a miter gauge for my Bosch 4001-10. I have heard good things about the Incra Miter 1000SE, anyone ever used it? Any other suggestions? My budget is about $200 or lower.
  10. Other than cost, is there any other reason to get a 2.25 HP rather than a 3.25 HP?
  11. I am in the market for a router, just for basic routing and dovetailing. I am just wondering how powerful a router do I need? Is around 2 HP enough or should I get around 3 HP?

    Freud Router

    Anyone ever used a Freud router? If so, thoughts please.
  13. One option would be to buy Ryobi lights and get an adapter to power those lights with Makita batteries, that's what I do. Ryobi has a wide assortment of lights and all the ones I have have worked great.
  14. I am assuming that the Makita is better, my question was more along the lines of is it better by enough to justify the difference in price? I decided that it wasn't, thanks for the help though.
