Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


I am starting to feel like Milwaukie is being left in the dust. Dewalt has some really cool and useful stuff coming out.

All the major brands have cycles where, for a period of time, it appears they have the best stuff. They all make cool stuff, it just depends what part of the cycle you buy in at.

Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


I'm a strong believer in multiple platforms. It's not a big deal to have more than one charger out.

I'm not going to deprive myself of the tool I like or need because it takes a different battery.

True. I do have some Dewalt stuff, so it's not a big deal.

That was a plunge you took there
The answer is nope. Festool saw hangs over the track edge by almost an inch.

Yes I'm sure the track could fit the bracket to the table. Single set screw with a t slot washer.

Bought myself a 36" Tove (Swede) bar this weekend. I went into a KMS for the first time in Vancouver and just walking out with one thing took all my self control

Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


Would like to hear your impressions on it. Still haven't seen one locally yet, but would probably scoop one up if I did. Gonna be setting a kitchen full of cabinets in a couple weeks and wonder how it would compare to my standard m12 impact for trim screws joining the face frames together.

Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


I've used ours and love it. The smoothness and how quiet it is, was what did it for me. After using the hydraulic impacts the other ones make me cringe. The smaller ones in the 12v, fit nicely in my bags.

Love this thing. This one feels more torqish then my m18. It was said it has the same power as the m18 when they released it earlier this year.

I had to make the kids at home depot search for it. Still in the overhead bins before the promo. 199 with two 2.0 batteries.

I set some cabinets last week. Used my m18 surges. And my m12 impact just for drilling. The noise level is soooooooo much less when your head is in a cabinet and your setting screws!

Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


Please include the baseplate in your review.

That's power on all modern tools is good enough these days. Finding a good, square to the blade, flat base is always a problem.
