  1. Sensitive electronics can be damaged by an artificial sine wave. A pure sine wave is going to be identical to an ac outlet in your home or business. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  2. I'm an industrial electrician myself, and I've gotten by on setting 1 and 2 with the knowledge that in a dark room "bright is relative." Lol I love the tower light in dark gear and e-houses, and it pairs great with the magnetic personal light inside whatever I'm in, for task specific lighting. Actually planning on picking up another of each in the near future. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  3. Kill a 9ah in roughly 4 hours, for me. Low setting will last a 12 shift on a fresh 6ah, and middle setting I can get through same shift on roughly a battery and a half 5/6ah. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  4. I actually used it today, finishing dirt work and adjusting a handful of 1½" and 1" sched 40 pvc. Maybe half a dozen in total, and did em all on a single 5ah. Gotta be more careful of the lack of temp control, coming from my corded with 150-1100 to this ones "H-L" but it's already paid for itself in my book. No power for a couple hundred yards, and a storm blowing in while my fines dump was waiting on me. Good tool, good day [emoji106] Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  5. Opened it up, troubleshooting, and everything looks pretty pristine with no apparent damage. Seems to me that the resistance detection for precision mode is activating even with no load. I'll check into the anvil housing to see if maybe something dented and is actually causing resistance. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  6. Can anyone tell me how precision mode is supposed to operate? Day one after receiving my impact and drill, the impact took a 30 foot drop to a concrete from a manbasket. Seems like my 90° adapter took the brunt of the impact, it's bent up pretty bad, but I expected speed one to behave like the same speed on my dcf887. Instead if I pull the trigger with just the impact in the air, it seems to run for a couple seconds, stop, then start back up with a little more power. Is this abnormal, and should I get a replacement coming? Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  7. It's very light, hard to explain but my corded lcd screen one just feels more substantial somehow. The heat shrink diffuser could be fitted a little more tightly, and I haven't determined how hard it is on a full battery yet, but I'm overall pleased with the design and feel.

  8. Yep, still no sign of my pre-order Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  9. Early August, per this thing I was sent in July. Been busy, sorry. Haven't followed up on forums in a minute. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  10. There's some concern on the verbiage about the drill/driver's capacity for a "half inch spade bit," and I'm really hoping it's a mistake instead of saying it can chuck a half inch bit. If the EU nm specs I saw posted somewhere, were remotely accurate, then these 12v XRs are more capable than the current gen 2 fuel m12s. To boot, the marketing imagery for the drill shows it using a spade much larger than a half inch. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  11. It seemed implied that saws were getting rereleased with hooks, in some coverage around the rear handle release. They did add a hook to the original sidewinder (don't recall if it was the 20 or 60 or both) but I remember being excited at reading that it was supposed to be most saws. Dewalt, while my preferred brand, unmistakably has a disconnect with the end users, and a history of delayed and abandoned follow through. Shame. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  12. Just the other day, I was eyeballing a company Milwaukee deep cut for its hook on my dewalt lol Only thing I envy. The dewalt is lighter, has continued though hard use while I've seen 2-3 of the milwaukees be discarded between two companies. The dewalt hook isn't useless, but its the least efficient design, short of not having one. Does hook on the back of my tough system dolly well for transport, though.

  13. That fire panel should be on a 20amp dedicated breaker, with a backup battery power supply (usually on board) that can remain powered for 24 hours on standby, then maintain at least 10 minutes of full alarm output. Nfpa72 is pretty specific, along with IBC (international building code), and nfpa70 or NEC (national electrical code). These are covered in depth under NICET I-IV Fire alarm and low voltage signaling systems. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  14. But Lowe's isn't doing that. And sbd IS building craftsman, so I'm still unclear on the dug-in spite of craftsman. And this is the first I've heard craftsman considered a direct competitor of dewalt, and it obviously won't become one. There's something positive happening with a well known legacy brand, and some people are just bitter for... reasons? All I'm saying. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  15. The idea is restoring the brand. Hence the new factory, and marketing. Crapsman from the past decade or two would not be worth a cent to any buyer. But craftsman, u.s. made, will certainly sell a hell of a lot better than most house brands and any sub professional lines out right now. Anything is just a name, but depending on SBD's execution, craftsman could very easily reclaim its past quality and its considerable market base that quality earned it. I don't understand why people feel the need to be a sourpuss about the brand. Best case, we get a great brand back and promote American jobs and production. Worst case, a deteriorated brand stays gone. Nothing SBD can do right now could make craftsman worse than it currently is. So unless Sears laid you off and stole your pension, you have a dead relative named craftsman who's memory you feel is being dishonored, or your purchaser/ warehouse has only buying you craftsman and its killing your bottom line/production, why all the poopy pants about the brand trying to come back? If you still have craftsman stock you're worried about, you've likely got bigger problems in your portfolio than that lol Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
