I am planning on using for demoing tile over backer board, cut thru grout lines and backer board then use bulldog chipper to pop whole sandwhich up. I use the harborfreight one but it has no built in dust control or port and I had to make one and it just doesn't keep 100% of dust contained.

My tile guy will be using on upcoming job to rip cut 2'x4' porcelain tiles that are 7/16" thick!

overanalyze on here pointed me to it on a thread I made yesterday in tiling where he cut 3'x6' tiles and it worked great.

The dust port on my makita mitersaw doesnt accommodate my festool midi without an adapter. I found it I leave the dust bag on and unzip it reduces the hole enough to then stick the hose through the bag. But a tad clumsy.

Which Makita saw are you referring to...? My LS1219 fits perfectly with the midi hose.

Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


Bought the DW716 miter saw. Pretty light weight saw. I just know my Kapex is going to take a **** at some point and I don't want to be caught with my pants down.

I bought it for 240 bucks so the price was right, now I just need some mods to make it perfect for shop work. I want to mod the dust collection and the fence.

Kapex will stay on job site duty this way which will give it much less use.

Ordered the Makita Dtd170z last week, showed up on my door before I left for work on Friday. Very impressed with it so far, although it didn't get a rigorous test yet. Used it to set up the booth for the local home show where we built an outdoor kitchen, then used it on 2 8" timberlocks to snug up a rail post from below.

Bought a label maker, I'm hiring out of family help for the first time - getting the van layout stupid proof.
I gotta say, it even helps me stay organized, maybe I'm stupid too!
