  1. Anyone noticed this before with their Milwaukee M12 ratchet? Just to show that when I hold the socket in my hand or on a very loose bolt the socket wont turn, if I try it free load it works and also works when on a tight bolt, nut etc. I verified the Pawl and gear all looks ok. I'm not sure whats up https://youtu.be/VHbbSGW9QEs
  2. Hi, has anyone else had quite a bit of runout on their drill and/or driver when using longer bits? It becomes particularly cumbersome when using the 6" driving bits for screws, harder to keep it in the slot. Get there taking just a measure more care with the hand, but didn't notice this with my older Porter Cable stuff (albeit I don't recall using the 6" bits as much back then). Just curious what others have experienced. Thanks!
  3. 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 of brands have cut the cord on tools that necessitated a generator or other power source just a few years ago. Not everything has changed, though, as Ryobi One+ was already over a decade old and the M12 and M18 lines were getting off to a decent start. DeWalt, on the other hand wouldn't release 12v Max tools until 2010, with 20v Max coming about a year later. Anyway, the point of this thread is to examine exactly how the cordless tool market has changed since 2008. If you have the time, share a few articles from way back when along with anything you want to add.
  4. While the jacket isn't technically a tool I'd appreciate any insight people might have. I bought the jacket and found the standard M12 lithium battery (model #48-11-2401) doesn't have enough power for an acceptable runtime even on the lowest setting. I found that the battery lasted only about 1.5 hrs on low. Since I don't want to load my pockets with extra batteries I tried my M18 standard size battery (model #48-11-1815). On high I get almost 3hrs but with more battery bulk. To me this is an acceptable runtime but if I could get even more time that would be better. So here's my question: would the M12 XC have more runtime than a standard M18? M12 XC = 3 amp hours - 32 watt M18 standard = 1.5 amp hours - 27 watt Not having an electrical engineering background does the M12 XC have more juice/runtime than the M18? I know there are factors like which heat setting (L, M or H). I typically wear it at medium. Does the 12v vs. 18v have any bearing? Thanks for taking the time to read and comment. Mike
  5. Saw this ad on acme tools and though it was kind of funny have a good halloween everybody Link : http://www.acmetools.com/blog/pumpkin-carving-milwaukee-m12-cordless-tools/?cm_mmc=Spop-Email-_-161031 Halloween Sitewide Ending Soon-_-Active
  6. Hey all, I will post each video in oztooltalk's M12 mechanic / auto series in the thread, for those interested. The latest video will always be at the top of this post. The tools for review are: 3/8" Ratchet FUEL 3/8" Wrench (still to come) FUEL Drill (still to come) Sander / polisher Rotary Tool (still to come) Mspector camera Stick light Jobsite radio Multi-charger USB Charger And the Jobsite Radio, USB Charger and 4-Bay Sequential Charger. And now the Mspector (inspection camera) and Stick Light! Next up, the Sander / Polisher: First up, the 3/8" Ratchet!
  7. I had the opportunity to get my hands on the new M12 circular saw this past weekend. Honestly, I was impressed with the run time of the saw and the speed. I own the old 6 1/2" M18 brushed version and I don't see much of a difference between the two in terms of run time and power. While I don't think you are going to be ripping OSB all day with it, I do think it has it's place on the site for quick cuts and anchor templates. It will be interesting to see if other companies come out with a similar product.
  8. So I'm currently on the Dewalt 20v max line and felt like filling in some tools that I did not want from the Dewalt 20v line and here is why: Fuel circular saw; I wanted a compact saw for smaller cuts and waiting for Dewalt to release a bigger blade size brushless saw for heavier jobs. The m12 will do for the time being until then Fuel rotary hammer drill; I don't drill often in concrete and when I do it's usually smaller holes so the M12 felt perfect for that. If I find myself in need for a bigger one I will get another Dewalt 20v max Fuel 1/2" impact wrench; I simply could not leave that poor guy alone in the store so I let it along for the ride.

  10. Does anyone own the right angle drill for either M12 or M18? I am looking to get one and can't decide which line I would like to go with. Any feedback would be appreciated! Thanks, FB82
  11. Got a chance to talk to my Milwaukee rep last night and he gave me a few tools to try out. Most of them have been used to show customers how they work, but are still in pretty good shape. Tools: M12 Fuel SDS 5/8" hammer drill Laser Distance Meter (I wasn't even aware they made this) M12 Right Angle Drill (This was awesome since I started a topic earlier on this!) Two pack of vice grips M12 Blue Tooth Radio The top three will be cool to mess around with, I have about five pairs of vice grips, but it never hurts to try a new product. When I get time later I will post a few photos. The hammer drill is the most used, but if I like it I am pretty sure I can get it cheaper because of that fact. Thanks, FB82
  12. Has anyone heard when the M12/M18 charger is coming out.... or has it already? I can't seem to find it yet! It seems kind of ridiculous that I want to buy it (when I own 4 M12 chargers) but I think it could make things easier and less cluttered when working. Any input would be great. Thanks, FB82
  13. I was poking about on milwaukeetool.com tonight when I ran across something interesting that I hadn't seen in any of the pre-announcements. Lots more pics and a bit more info on the official page. http://www.milwaukeetool.com/accessories/batteries-and-chargers/48-59-1204 Since it's sequential, I'm guessing that the FastForward button is the "Start charging the next battery" button. It doesn't appear to be available yet, but I can certainly see the appeal for those with lots o' M12 batteries to charge.
  14. was browsing the Milwaukee website, and came across this http://www.milwaukeetool.com/power-tools/cordless/0850-20 update: milwaukee has removed all trace of this vac from their website
  15. What's that you say, I'm clogging up the Tool Review forum? You're only saying that because you already have this tool, or you're depressed that you don't. Write up: What’s 1.9kgs, brushless, and eats concrete for breakfast? If you said an M18 Milwaukee rotary hammer drill, you’d be close. But at this size and weight, it could only be the M12 FUEL 2416-20 - Rotary Hammer. It looks small enough to give to your kids for christmas (which would be an awesome gift by the way, just don’t provide any bits). While this may be the most portable rotary hammer drill known to mankind, it still packs a mighty punch. Official specs: 6mm holes in concrete; stealing candy from a baby.10mm dynabolt holes in clay bricks; arm-wrestling your 4 year old niece.12mm holes in concrete; not as fun as above mentioned activities, but still pretty easy.Easy to throw to colleagues on above floorRedOther useful stats: Max Capacity : 5/8"Blows per minute : 0 - 6200BPMSpeed : 0 - 900 RPMWeight : 3.9 ;bsLength : 10"On-tool fuel guageWe only wish it had a belt hook. Also, it has no stubby holder. We recommend getting some 4.0ah batteries with this unit. Despite being brushless, you are asking it to put holes in concete, which is traditionally a substance that resists damage fairly well. With a street price of (insert US pricing here), if you have the M12 line and need to put in anchors regularly, this is a no-brainer. Seriously, stop reading this rubbish and go buy it, it’s amazing.
  16. Hey All, Up for sale is a brand new, unused, Milwaukee M12 Fuel Drill driver.. I ended up buying the new makita 18v brushless drill so im gonna sell this one. just a few weeks ago, before the new makita, i bought it as a kit but it never came out of its case (except for some pictures).. It has never had a bit in the chuck, in fact the chuck is still in the closed position it was in when i got it... I decided i wanted to keep the batteries for some of my other tools so im deciding to sell whats left as a "bare tool plus" kit! Included is; 1- brand new drill driver 2403-20 1- brand new 12v charger 48-59-2401 1- mint condition case 42-55-2100 and even cardboard sleeve if you want it owners manuals Price for everything, including standard shipping to the CONUS $139.00 $105.00 payment via paypal Thanks for looking and please let me know if you are interested..
  17. I was at Home Depot yesterday chatting with the local Milwaukee rep and he confirmed that an M12 circular saw will be released later in the year. It will have a 5 3/8" blade and he believes that it will fall under the Fuel line. He told me that he had given a prototype (it's all white in color) to a local contractor that he knows to give him feedback. All that he's heard from him so far is that the contractor is surprised by the battery runtime. Hopefully next time I see the rep he can give me a little more info, like a projected release date.
