I've been thinking about that Makita wall saw. Did I miss a smokin' deal on that?

Was really hoping to hear that it worked awesome on OSB.

I don't currently have a jig saw so was easy to justify, being a multi use tool. I got it for 230 Canadian bucks cheapest I've seen it. really hard to get a deal on it because no one really carries it at the big box stores.

:eek:

One of my most used tools :whistling My most used jig saw is the little Milwaukee M12. Kinda a piece of junk, but it is really light and powers through material without slowing down. If I remember correctly I bought it off Ebay for $60 US.

Used me wee lil' M12 multi-tool today for cutting case work higher to clear tile underneath. Used me lil' jig saw a lot on this job though for cutting blocking pieces to fit under the subfloor for support. No way would I use a multi-tool for cutting 2x material. (SCMS did the heavy cutting.)

Sounds like it is time for a new jigsaw. Now get a new one and report back with photos for proof of purchase :laughing:

Forgive me, brothers, for I have fallen off the path. Ordered Flexvolt track saw (DCS520T1, good price now -- $450 at CPO), short and long tracks, and a spare 9Ah FV battery. Pics when it all rolls in.

Picked up a Planex LHS 225 EQ-Plus/SW PLANEX on the Festool Black Friday Recon sale. Cheaper than I have seen yet, and cheaper than Ebay by far for used Planex's even. I didn't want the Easy version as I wanted to be able to use the harness and an extension for tall ceilings.

Opened the box up and upon the first inspection it looked brand new. The Maxi-Systainer was not scratched at all. Finally grabbing a flashlight and looking deep into the power heads tube I could faintly make out a little white dust. Otherwise it is in near perfect condition. Will be putting it to use on an up coming job.

I'm a bit worried about the single strap. Have to balance things.

You're not married...otherwise you would know the woman always pushes the man around, and she only goes forward while the man is always going backwards. :whistling

"Happy wife, happy life". (I need to go make a salad for the wife...after all she is still working.)

I'm torn between purchasing the Milwaukee packout backpack at almost $200+ or the Klein backpack for $99.

I just don't see myself wanting to add any packout boxes to the bottom of it to carry around.
