That's the whole package. 1/ saw 2/ batteries. 1/ super fast charger and blades. Saw alone comes with standard with blades. Get an account price is different and let's not forget the perks. They push the package you have to specificly ask for saw only. I know I have 2. And cant kill/ drain a battery in one day of hard use to save my life. Partnered up with Maki Max blades adds another 50-60 cuts on pt comfortably. I framed 250' addition few Weeks ( non pt) 200+ cuts same charge. And the feel and balance is hole nother conversation. You think Maki saw is good. Yes it is. I Knowbi had them. But Hilti is like magic....

I could be wrong but my understanding is if you are running a flexvolt tool at 60v then the battery is really only a 2ah battery @60v

But if on a 20v tool then its a 6ah battery

Just wondering... exactly which saw is that? The wormdrive or sidewinder? And is it brushless or old skool?

Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


Its been a while... been busy. Relapsed several times.

Got a Fuel Gen II blower from HD today, they dropped the price to $99 so I had to.

Stole the Delta dust collector with a Jet canister filter and a bunch of spare filter bags for.... $85! Thanks Craigslist.

Got a PC 12.5" planer, 6" jointer and belt/disc sander a while back. I may have posted those 3 before but I'm not sure. They all work well enough.

Bought an older Makita 3x21" belt sander from a pawn shop for $50 after I FINALLY managed to melt the drive wheel on my 6ish year old Ridgid. Really want their 4x24" but can't justify almost $300 for a belt sander.

And these Jorgensen EZ Hold clamps are really nice, $25 for a pair at Lowes right now. If these hold up I'll not be buying any Irwin clamps ever again, they feel solid. Best feature is you can flip the end of 2 of them and connect them together to clamp large panels or whatever. Can also reverse the end and use them as spreaders, same as some Irwins.

Not pictured, I got a 12 gallon 8.8cfm IR compressor for almost nothing off CL to run a paint gun for some cabinets I'm spraying. Its from the late 80's and still works great.

Yeah they've been there for at least a month that I know of. I bought some 6" version of these (12") quite a while ago and really liked them. I have a pair of their ratcheting clamps I bought 5-6 years ago that I wish I bought at least 10 more of. All steel/aluminum construction. Bessey makes similar ones but they are plastic and "light duty" according to the reviews I've read. The Jorgensen ratchet clamps can crush hard Maple if you're not careful.

57 at my sons. Warmer but less sun when we got home. Looks like quite a few rainy days in the future though.

That's surprising. My Milwaukee 10" 18v miter saw cuts through 8/4 Purple Heart without too much drama with a good blade in it.

Took a bit of time messing with all the adjustments on the guns but eventually got it working well.

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

-Rich
Used them both to spray Deft Clear Wood Finish which is a waterborne acrylic, very similar if not the same as polycrilic, with excellent results. That Deft stuff is pretty incredible for a topcoat over latex paint. Goes on pretty flat, but it dries smooth as glass.

Ya, well that's what I mean. You had to thin the chit out of it. Means a lot more coats and might damage the paints integrity.

The polycrylic sprayed really well, used the 1.4 tip (the 1.8 clogged up after only a couple passes), and I didn't have any issues with the gun
