I was after the hitachi.... now owned by Metabo.

I've been using it on a siding job, works like a champ :thumbsup:

Hitachi Power Tools has renamed to Metabo HPT. Same great tools, with only a new name.

A few months old, and I'm not sure if I posted this yet....
This compressor from Northern Tool has been AMAZING :thumbsup:

It's a bit heavy, but very portable and quiet, quick recovery and runs a two man crew extremely well :thumbup:

Looks just like the CA air one I have.

New superdado $250ish :sad:

Metabo 16g $100 amazon :thumbsup:

Bosch brushless goodies :whistling not sure.... they were wants not needs :clap:

I got that super dado in 12". It's spendy but I looked at getting a custom dado and it was stupid expensive. I think Everlast wanted like a grand. I did a lot of dado's with that freud and its still fine. I don't do enough to justify 1k on a damn consumable...

No I don't but they don't chip from any movement. Been stacking them like that for many years without issue.

I was just asking. Quality blades are not cheap lol. Yet make your life and work a lot better and easier.

Not to pry but you have about $325, give or take sitting in that case.

If I leave the gum on them from the sharpening company the sun makes it a bitch to get off.

Leo G 07-07-2020 10:34 PM

Brushless or Fuel is the only way to go.

If only the blade was on the other side! I mostly use my fuel 6 1/2" exclusively anymore and keep waiting for them to switch the blade to the other side on the 7 1/4". I don't need the "worm drive" saw, don't do production framing anymore and don't need the weight. Can't remember the last time I broke out the Skil 77mag now that I think about it...

I've gone to the rear handle saw almost exclusively.

The only thing I don't like, is it doesn't like the smaller batteries, even for a single cut.

Other than that, it feels like going home again.

We run two 2731s, and one 2732. The 2732 is a beast and really needs to have the 12amp battery on it. The guys gravitate towards the lighter 31s.

This seemed as good a place as any to post, the bag from the 10" Makita battery miter saw fits nicely on my track saw. Dust collection is much better than I expected with a baghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/202...762ab014a4.jpg

What did you use as an adapter?

rblakes1 07-13-2020 12:26 AM

Didn't need one. Its very snug, so needs a little muscle getting it together
