Another thing he told me was step ladders can not be used for working from. They are only to be used to gain access to your "work platform", which would be scaffold or bakers scaffold.

His brother was an inspector for the English version of OSHA.

Jeez, and I thought we had arbitrary rules. What would you do in a small closet. Buy a tiny scaffold?

I thought as long you got 3 points of contact on a ladder...

I love scaffold. Really have to do something stupid to die on it.

Nice addition to cordless, but I wish they would hurry up and put out a cordless table saw.

Max 35 minutes runtime on a 5.0 battery. If you are doing a whole house, better have a fair amount of batteries and a quick charger. Surprised they didn't do the 18 x 2 setup.

Definitely need batteries if you hook to the cordless vac too.

Thinking 18v just for less weight...my guess??

Re: Makita Does It Again


Doesn't say how many screws it holds.

I had an auto feed screw gun way back when. DuoFast made it.
Had a Sioux screw gun that the cannister attached to.

I didn't like it. It was big and clumsy to use.

This Makita looks small, which is why I was wondering how many screws it holds.

I wish they would send tools to me to demo and tell them what to change/fix before mass production. The Makita 36v rear handle saw is about the best thing since sliced bread IMO, but it could be a lot better if they had just had some real framers try it before production started. The hook is way too big, wet sawdust jams the guard open, the bevel hard stops like to jam up, etc.

I don't know what they were thinking with that hook. Must be for a wide TJI. It should have a smaller one that could be clipped in it's place.

That would make sense.
Around here most new builds are all TJI joists but still truss for roof.

TJI's on the roof for custom homes though.
