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.

I love that drill!! It is what I use for all my soffit and siding work. Will drive 2 -2 1/2 screw fairly easy. I do use the bigger batteries and only change out maybe once a day.

Nope, got the Graco gun for that. Running polycrylic through it, first coat looks like it went down fairly well.

Why polycrylic? Because that's what I used on the trim before I knew I was doing the doors lol

Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


wow what an upgrade for 30 bucks more.
before it was hex head screwdriver and 2 batteries. but this kit is a drill with a chuck and impact driver. also picked up this makita starter kit to get my 6 1/4 saw running.
I Like how I can hang the m12s off my jeans and it doesn't pull my pants down.

I bought that M12 fuel kit for the shop and got one 3ah battery free. Pretty sweet deal. I really like that M12 line for around the shop

I buy a lot of tools but rarely post, but this thing is impressive! Just in time for 3600SF of flooring



Iím not familiar with the 825, but the 835 blade seems to have a newer mount/arbor system.

Saw this on the Crain 835 box...



I would not have thought to try this. Brilliant-saves time from having to pull out the TS55 and pop the pins.

You can do that with the TS 55 REQ, don't have to pull the door.

Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


You can cut a door in place and clamp to track no problem. I don't it's awkward but saves a lot of time.

I usually round overall my edge cuts and I can't do that if I just leave it so.

Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


Man you guys really don't like pulling pins.
I remove the doors if I'm doing the flooring.
I hate working on floors with doors in place.
New res I could see leaving them on but for demo and reno I just remove them.
One less thing to paper, clean or repair.

You can use the FS rapid clamp.

If I use that method though I just clamp it on the strike end and count on the foam strips to keep it in place.

Don't need the track. The R model has a flat side that rides on the floor. You can pad up as needed.

I pull the door by the way.
