DeWALT DCS355D1 20V MAX XR Oscillating Saw Kit

 

The DeWALT DCS355D1 Type 2 20V MAX XR oscillating saw kit I purchased included a N276779 tool box with assorted parts, a 2.0Ah battery, a 2.0A charger and a 629053-00 tool bag. I also purchased a DWA4216 5-piece accessory kit. These two kits complement each other, with both being a great starting point for the oscillating saw.

 

A DeWALT DWST17807 TSTAK II flat top toolbox and a sheet of 2¼" thick Kaisen foam with the perimeter that is custom-cut to the TSTAK toolbox was purchased for this tool. I used a pair of snap knives for my custom foam cuts.

 

The DeWALT N268241 belt hook was purchased separately and added to the DCS355 tool. A M3 0.5 Nylock nut was additionally required for mounting the belt hook to the tool. The tool already had the belt hook mounting location and already had the empty cavity for the Nylock nut. That Nylock nut was scavenged from another DeWALT 20V MAX XR tool that had two when only one was required.

 

The 629053-00 tool bag that comes with the kit is 15" Long x 9" Wide x 11" Tall, Yellow and Black fabric w/ DeWALT logo, two full width plastic rail feet, internal / concealed shape-retaining stiffening material, two loop fabric handles, full-length zipper closure and three exterior pockets on one side.

 


These replies show the toolbox, foam sheet, accessory kits, knives and belt hook.

20V MAX XR Belt Hook and Tool Holder -

The plan for this tool was to use the TSTAK toolbox w/ custom-cut Kaisen foam instead of the 629053-00 medium tool bag. I didn't use the DCB112 2.0A charger that came with the kit and instead used a DCB115 4.0A charger from a different tool.

 

The rough layout without the foam is shown. I found an interior toolbox side-wall tab near the planned location for the N276779 blade box, leading me to shift the position sideways slightly to clear that tab.

 

The images show the plan view outline, the blade box draft and the actual foam cut outline. I used a Sharpie and blue painter's tape to permit marking the tool outline so that those markings were visible, instead of black Sharpie on black foam.

 

Three device cuts are through the entire foam sheet, for the N276779  blade box, for the DWA4216 accessory kit box and for the DCB115 charger. The sidewall cutouts are vertical on the two boxes while some of the DCB115 cutout sidewalls have slopes to match the part.

 

The cutout for the DCS355 tool is through the entire foam sheet at the handle and the battery. The handle cutout is wider than the tool to permit grabbing the tool for removal from the foam. The cutout at the head has different depths and sloping sidewalls to match the tool. For those partial foam removal areas, the sides are cut deeper than required, then fingers are used as a "shovel" to scrape / separate the foam to the desired depth. The result is a "rough" bottom surface. The top black layer was removed from the plug, then placed into the base of the cutout.

 

The 9mm and the 18mm snap knives were ideally suited for this foam cutting, with MUCH longer extension than a standard utility knife.

 

The DCS355D1 kit includes a cut guide block and arm. That cut guide block has three (almost) orthoganal holes that permit flexibility for the cut guide arm. The images show the cut guide arm in the different orientations.

Nice setup, I haven't used kaizen foam either, but need to get some to set up the myriad modular boxes with.

 

The 20v Max OMT is great!  I bought one for the free 6.0Ah XR battery promo last year, then got a little used kit my wife bought for a project.  I used to have the PC 18v version which was useful but nowhere near as refined.

What do you not like about  the M18?

i have had several  OMT’s, I mainly use the Fein multi master for undercutting door casings.

I find the blades last much longer when used on a slower speed (2-3) 

The DeWalt doesn’t have a speed dial,

the variable speed is in the trigger.

I had a Rigid tool,  and it was difficult to keep it a consistent speed , unless it was full throttle.

i thought about getting a M18 but I have never tried one .

One of the worst OMTs on the market, blade change isn't the greatest, power isn't the best but worst off it vibrates pretty bad, Feins the best you can get no going back from there, Bosch is a close second, all about star lock, total game changer

starlock reduces vibration?

My current project is a major remodel of a 1963 home.

 

One interesting aspect of the construction is that the walls and ceilings are constructed w/ panels similar to but different from sheetrock.

 

Covering that "sheetrock" is about ¼" of plaster. All of the corners have a galvanized metal wire screen under the plaster, with about a ¼" square grid pattern.

 

A large corner section of that ceiling needed to be removed for parts of the remodel.

 

The OMT was used to cut through the plaster, sheetrock and wire screen.

 

The material was very abrasive, removing the blade teeth. but the blade continued cutting through the material w/o issue. Both the front edge (that used to have teeth) and the side edge were effective at cutting.

The tool bag that came with the kit, but not used for the OMT, has been repurposed to be a general purpose tool bag, mostly used for my wiring projects.
