Oh, I didn't catch the 1 inch socket part. Yeah, that's a bit big for anything I do as well. But it would look impressive to pull out if the tool box.

Itd be great for the tire guy at work, not having to fire up a compressor for changing a flat out on the side of the road.

That's what I was thinking, it would be real nice for my dump truck wheels when it's time for service. Other big sized nuts and bolts that currently need a big long pipe and some luck to get loose.

I have the 1/2" 18V and I love it for setting lags and 5/8" tapcons. For around $200 bare tool, it was a great buy. It does sheer smaller bolts easily though..

Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


I looked at a getting an Impact wrench when I was all dewalt because dewalts would regularly burn out driving 1/4" SDS into ledgers and beams. They would get so hot I'd have to have 3 to rotate because I couldn't he them. Ok let's not even get into the conversation if how stupid long they take to charge and hot or cold forget about. You need to carry a tub of batteries. Don't get me wrong I like dewalt that have a lot of great stuff and use them as my 2nd platform but not in my environment or daily grind. They are perfect slk around for Reno work. Anyway I tested Hilti 22v. vrs dewalt vrs Maki. Hilti drove 137 1/4" x 6" SDS with 1/battery and barely warmed up. Maki did 75 but too hot to hold and 1/ bar left. Dewalt (brushless) cooking 50-60 SDS. Then Hilti came out with the sweet 7 1/4 cordless skil saw. The rest is history...I'm all Hilti now. I don't want any more tools then I absolutely need. Can't warrant another tool that will sit 98% if the Time. Like Cali said. I'll take a sawzaw to it. It is nice if needed..

A sawzall can make quick work of it.

That's more automotive to me. With rusty bolts up here, 1000 ft-lbs does nothing, even with a penetrating fluid soak. Some you can't get to the nut to torch it, so more torque is it.

Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


I purchased the Craig tracks saw kit that you attached to the underside of your Skil saw I thought it was a bit sloppy and Hass to be adjusted.....I haven’t tested the skill saw that’s made for the track.

On another note look at the power of the Makita saws all....lol

Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


Been using these since October.. I'm all cordless with saws Hilti SW60 and dewalts 7 1/4. These blades are 1/2 the thickness if what my Hilti saw came with. I comfortably get 50-60 more cuts out of one battery on Hilti. The dewalt does get More but not sure how many cause it's not my primary but let's say 50 for conversational purposes. Bottom line. Less cost then Diablo. Last lil longer but more importantly less friction on saws get more out of your day. Even if it's a 3 min battery swap.

This is what happens when you give 17 year olds power tools. They just want to hear the tick tick tick sound as they crank the lug nuts back on

Do the thinner blades tend to wander/bind more, say when ripping?

Hate to add to your sadness... But that drill won't drive a deck screw...
That's the cordless screwdriver. It's great for doing door hardware.
Send me your address, I'll mail you a first gen M12 impact. I've got a spare.

ah damn you're right haha. I was thinking of the m12 impact.
I see that the tool store has the dual combo in the flyer with (see in store for price) so it should be a good deal knowing them.
I'll return this to home depot and pick up the kit at tool supplier . Thanks for pointing that out, and thanks for offering to ship. I'll let ya know on the spare impact you got.

It will. Its pretty much all I use now. Get the bigger batteries though.

Oops, didn't notice it wasn't the impact. The impact is great.
