A Thing Of Beauty


The most beautiful things I've seen in my life, in no particular order:

1) Floating on the surface of a natural harbor in Haiti, staring up at the greenest, most impossibly beautiful mountains rise out of the sea

2) My chubbly little red-haired baby daughter staring up at me for the first time

3) This, which came in the mail yesterday:

I don't have any of the 12 amp nor do I plan to get any. I have 3 of the 9 and I try to use those just on stationary tools like the table saw and compressor. Just really really heavy.

Re: A Thing Of Beauty


Still wondering how Milwaukie gets more power out of an 18v battery than Dewalt out of the Flexvolt stuff and Makita out of two batteries.

It's still beautiful though. However, I would probably put my wife before the battery... just in case she read this.

This battery, and the the others like it I will buy soon, are for the compressor (that things eats the 6AH batteries every half hour), the tripod light which also whips through 6AH every couple hours when you have the brightness all the way up, and, eventually, for this thing that I have in our trailer:

It's the 4-port charger, but also serves as an 1800 watt "generator" when you unplug it and hit a button on the side. It allows us to have power anywhere, anytime. I ran a paint sprayer for a few hours with it recently, using four 6AH batteries; the plan is to soon have four of the 12AH so that we can basically convert any tool we need to cordless no matter where we are.
