UPS stopped by today  

Oh self control, where art thou?   -

Trying out the Makita torsion impact bits. Got the longest ones (4 3/8"). The aren't much more than the el-cheapo bits the wholesaler has on the counter.
I tried the Irwin version and wasn't impressed.
These appear to fit significantly better.

Got this Friday.  Seems much nicer than my old 18 volt Black and Decker Firestorm

Lol ya think!?? My father in law had the Firestorm drill with the removable chuck. I have no doubt he let the batteries die beyond hope and that what led to their early demise

Mine had that removable chuck also.  I was surprised those batteries held on for about 9 years.

Smell that new tool smell.
Got the saw for $99!
Basic saw for my basic needs.
Can't wait for my brushless grinder...

Forgot about this from the other day:

.

I'll use it when I need to charge up expansion/pressure tanks and when doing plumbing inspections to pump up test balls, like these:

I know this is old post.

 

But, Will that little ryobi air inflater do expansion tanks?

 

What about small runs of gas piping?

 

Whats the run time like?

It will work on expansion tanks for smaller heating systems, the only type I use is the bladder style. And only for adding some pressure back into the bladder at that, not filling the entire bladder. 

I have done short runs of gas pipe to test at 90psi. With no power around, it was great. But it's a small battery in it and it will probably fill up a car tire and that's about it on that battery. With bigger battery I think the only thing you have to worry about is heat build up.

But mainly use for these test balls

Pretty productive week in the tow department myself. I bought a Dewalt Flexvolt saw from @SevenOddosFence (thanks Phil!). My hand turned screwdriver from Blue Spruce Tools came in and this weekend will more likely than not have a Jet or Rikon 1.5 or 2.0hp DC unit appear in my shop.
