  1. Hi Folks, I just picked up a Dewalt drill/driver combo (DCK283D2, 20v brushless). After alot of research, I found that every one of the big names (Makita, Milwaukee, DeWalt, etc) have fan boys and haters. So, I went with what I see alot of the guys that do work for me use. I put the battery in the charger (for the first time) and the charger charged and then said it is full (solid red light). When I check the power level on the battery, only 2 of the 3 green LEDs light up. The book says this is a charge equal to 50-70% charge level. I called DeWalt and they eventually
  2. Does anyone know if the "thrust bearing," the dime-size circular ball bearing ring in the pivot recess, is supposed to be lubricated? I can see factory lube on the O-ring that surrounds this area, but I can't tell if the ball bearing ring should be greased or not. Mine was all choked with sawdust, so I blew it out with compressed air and would like to know before I put it all back together whether or not the factory wants that to be lubed. Thanks.
  3. Hello, I am new to this forum. My husband bought a Dewalt 24000 tile saw. It was supposed to work, but of course.. it doesn't. I bought new brushes, and that didn't fix it. So I bought a new armature and it still doesn't work. The water pump does work when the switch is turned on, but the saw - no go. Now, of course I may have installed something incorrectly, or there may be something else wrong with it. I have googled how to fix.. and lots of stuff for a miter saw, but not so much on the tile saw. Any thoughts???
  4. Well, I invested in the ToughSystem 2.0 stack from Home Depot, along with a couple of half-width organizers. It seems well-thought out, trying to maintain backwards compatibility with the older ToughSystem while addressing some of the shortcomings 1.0 had when compared to Packout. I'll be using the heck out of this in the coming months and hope it impresses. Since I'm good on modular storage, I'm gifting some of my older ToughSystem components forward to a good friend. He's been struggling to find employment so he's been doing a lot of handyman work. He also has a house to reno
  5. After being in the trades, mostly carpentry and rental properties, I finally decided on Tstak as my choice of toolbox system. I have grown into a mostly interior trim carpenter and love these boxes. I have used all the brands and I was using a combination of the Milwaukee organizers and the 26" Jobsite box. At the same time I was using the Ridgid pro boxes for my bigger routers/planer etc. I was waiting for what ended up being Packout from Milwaukee, but the price is too high. And I thought the Ridgid system was too heavy.... I put a cap on my truck and now I no longer have the need for watert
  6. Hi Dewalt people, Does anyone know what the -XJ means at the end of a Dewalt model number? For example on Amazon UK the DCS331N Jigsaw is £30 cheaper than the DCS331N-XJ. Its driving me nuts trying to find out. Cheers.
  7. Hi, new inquirer here. I need to get a 1/2" impact wrench for the main purpose of removing and reinstalling the blades on my John Deere 48" mower deck. I'm 70 now and doing it with a 1/2 socket wrench and a torque wrench is pretty much out of the question now. So, I have a recommendation from my repair guy. He uses the DeWalt 20V 1/2 impact wrench. However, I'm a little inundated with so many DeWalt models and most of them look different from each other and have different prices, even though they say they are 1/2" and 20V. I know some have a brushless motor, and I like the sounds of that
  8. Hi Guys, hoping someone might be able to answer my problem as I can't find anyone who knows what's up! I'm having a problem with my DeWalt Circular Saw DWE576, I purchased recently with two rail guides. The edge of the splinter guard never seems to align up to the blade of the saw. So when it comes to placing the rail guide onto the mark, it never cuts on the line, always a few mm off? I followed the instructions, set the blade depth, adjusted the cams and slowly cut the rubber strip fully on a sacrificial piece of wood, but time after time when I use my rail I notice
  9. Well, well, well...DeWalt just shipped a new Jobsite Table saw and I was wondering what you all think of it? I am providing a link to an article that talks about it, but was curious to hear if this was the feature set and size customers were looking for. Seems like 8-1/4" is becoming more popular, but is it really preferred over the 10" blade? https://toolguyd.com/dewalt-jobsite-table-saw-dwe7485-022020/ Couple things stand out to me on this new model...I like the steel miter gauge, seems like many of the competitors are shipping these sized models with cheap plastic ones, so that
  10. What ideas for new tools and accessories do you wish dewalt would come out with in 2020. Share your Thoughts and Possibly Dewalt will see this thread and take our ideas into reality. I will start Flexvolt Tool Connect (For Dust extraction) batteries Flexvolt Tool Connect Miter and Table Saws. Basically an Updated Flexvolt Miter and Table saw to include built in Tool Connect to communicate with the 60v dust extractor. Also Tool Connect batteries so you could use your existing miter and table saws/ other tools to connect to the 60v dust extra
  11. A trip through the archives of Tools in Action and ToolGuyd displays how far the cordless tool market has come in the past decade or so. Early articles on each site capture the look of the 2008-2011 tool market, and there are many gems that cover the tools available back then--established brands, new products, and optimistic predictions of what the future would look like. Well, it's the future, and I'd venture to say that few of us expected the cordless job site to look like it does now back in the dark days of 2009. The tools have gotten smaller, smarter and become brushless, and a number
  12. Hell every one, thanks To all of you for continuing to share your experiences and knowledge. For some time now I’ve been using the dewalt circular saws, I’d say I’ve owned 7-8 of them. I currently own 4, two flex and 2 20v. The reason I’ve had to keep buying them is the bed plate is always working it’s way out of square to the blade. I’m framing with them and I usually have at least one other guy with me sharing my tools. I try to be gentle, but they never seem to last longer than 6 months with a true bed plate... ive had 20 year old makita saws that have been beat up huge
  13. I buy stuff and then never get around to using it. I need to get rid of some of this stuff to make room and funds for something new. All items include USPS shipping from Queenstown, MD. Flexvolt Grinder, DCG414B - $130 -sold Flexvolt Grinder, DCG414B - $130 - Sold pending funds Veritas Medium Shoulder Plane w/ PM-V11 blade - $190 - Sold Veritas Low Angle Jack Plane w PM-V11 blade - $225 - Sold 4x Bessey BPC-H12 1/2" Pipe Clamps - $60 for the set. If someone wants everything I'll do $675 shipped USPS. None of these items have been used
  14. I'm invested in both 40V and 60V platforms. Is there a difference between the two battery chainsaws? I know they operate at different voltages (duh), but voltage doesn't equate to power; watts do. Are there subtle differences between the two units that are not advertised? https://www.dewalt.com/products/power-tools/outdoor-power-equipment/40v-max-xr-16-cordless-chainsaw-bare/dccs690b https://www.dewalt.com/products/power-tools/outdoor-power-equipment/flexvolt-60v-max-cordless-chainsaw-tool-only/dccs670b
  15. Hi I’m just wondering if anybody else is having a problem with the dewalt flexvolt 12” mitre saw? The problem I have come across is when the power adapter is used with a dust extractor. When the vacuum is switched to tool mode it starts straight away and will not turn off, the saw still works but to stop the vacuum you have to turn it off manually (will not shut off as supposed to). The vacuum is fine it works with all other corded tools. Any information will be appreciated. Cheers Michael
  16. New at the forum Got 11 years experience repairing power tools like milwaukee dewalt hitachi makita bosch ...
  17. I was at my local flea market and found some Dewalt batteries 20 v all different 3,4,5,6 AH with dewalt branding on them that look 100% legit at less than half of retail price. Are there fake batteries that look exactly like the real deal out there? Any experience with flea market dewalt tools?
  18. Hey everyone I’m new here, I’m a retired Philadelphia Firefighter and own a small Contracting company that specializes in Marine Construction, Docks, Decks, pilings etc. Although I’ve been doing a lot of laminate plank flooring lately whatever pays the bills, Anyway I live in a very small resort town on the Atlantic Ocean called Diamond Beach it’s just above Cape May Nj . I just purchased a New Dewalt circular saw today model DW358, if you’re scratching your head saying they haven’t made that saw in over 20 years he’s got the wrong number well you’re right and wrong.They haven’t made it since
  19. I've been hunting around for a set of DWMT80432 ToughBox lid storage compartments, and while I can't find a vendor to save my life, I also can't seem to find any mention of a discontinuation, a reason for recall, or even a complaint about them only being overseas. Any info on this would be greatly appreciated. Love the 60" box, worth every penny, but the casters and lid storage were on my short list to round it out.
  20. First Post: Hi everyone, I've recently moved to the US from the UK and have brought my Dewalt tools with me. I'm having real difficultly deciphering how I'm going to be able to charge my batteries now that I'm here. I've had a lot of conflicting advice from several people so thought I'd turn to the real experts. I've attached two images of my current batteries and charger. The options I've been suggested so far are: 1) Just use a USA to UK adapter with my current setup, it might charge slower but it'll still work. (My concerns with this is that the charger st
  21. Working outside in -20 degree Celsius. My miter saw doesn’t want to fire up right away, it screeches and slowly turns for about ten seconds and sometimes starts to smoke before it starts spinning normally. It keeps working fine after that if I’m continually making cuts. The blade is stiff to turn by hand too before I get it going for the first time. All my other saws (skill saw, table saw etc.) work fine. Only have a problem with the miter saw.
  22. I have a DEWALT Portable Hand Planer (D26676) and I can't seem to find a dust collection bag that fits the this tool. It's not just a regular circle so I can't just use some adapter that would fit it. Does anyone have a solution to this?
  23. Sitting here enjoying the snow in the DC area. While the accumulation so far is miniscule compared to that usually encountered further north, I'm comforted to know that in a pinch I can keep my phone and tablets charged with DeWalt, Ridgid, or M12 batteries, power small items with the DeWalt power station, generate some heat with the Ridgid forced air heater, run the ToughSystem radio for entertainment, light up the house with the various DeWalt and Milwaukee lights, and warm up with the M12 heated gear if needed. I don't expect a power outage--or even missed time at work--but days like this
  24. So I recently unfortunately had about 80% of my cordless dewalt tools stolen. As sad as it was to lose most of my tools that meant I get to buy new tools!!!! And who doesn't like to buy tools!!!! So anyway I bought the flexvolt new stuff since all my tools were about three to four years old. So I bought these tools within a two month period . Worm style drive saw. Miter saw 12inch flexvolt. Flexvolt Angle grinder. Flexvolt table saw. A few days ago I was using my angle grinder and I had a very small bind so the break engaged and I thought pretty cool safety. But then the grinder didnt turn b
  25. Before I begin, let me recognize the fact that many of us here and on similar forums are somewhat receptive to owning tools from different brands, being capable of recognizing that the "best" isn't always proprietary to a favored tool brand. Also, though this thread will naturally concern tools in general and power tools in particular, a representative example of how close-minded some people are can be had in the endless debates on which truck brand is best. Ford guys stick to Ford, GM to GM, Dodge to Dodge (or Ram to Ram I guess nowadays), etc. So, how many of you have met someo
