Yeah, I got a question about the latest Makita crack you are hitting there. Can it plunge cut while on the track? I know you can probably raise the heel off the track and plunge it in, but I want a little more control, more like a Festool track saw. Often I use my wet saw to plunge cut sharp corners on the top, then a P4 blade on a grinder to cut the backside so it leaves a super clean top cut, for places like around a closet post, where it will be caulked.

Starting with dry porcelain not only saves time, but setup and cleaning a wet saw is time consuming. Plus wet saws are messy, or at least mine is.

Heck being able to cut dry on an MFT table sounds pretty appealing. Hmm... How much dust escapes? I watched a video and it sent a pretty good amount of dust backwards interestingly enough, but that was on a masonry cut.

That's the normal bare tool price, so getting double charger and batteries
I like my saw. I don't use it a lot, but when I do, I don't regret buying it.

It does not plunge like a regular track saw. Dust collection is decent but also not as good as a regular track saw. I will take a video of it making a cut in the next day or so.

Picked up a pair of Milwaukee electrician snips and a UTP stripper.

Had been using Klein for my stripper but I find the blade on the UTP one dulls way to fast for my liking.

DEWALT DCH293R2 20V Max XR Brushless 1-1/8” L-Shape SDS Plus Rotary Hammer Kit

At the moment, it's $274.42. (How do they pick these prices?!?)

If you look at camelcamelcamel.com, you'll see that it's usually 600 bucks. (Which is actually a sh!tty price if you consider that the 293X2, which comes with 2 9ah flexvolt batteries is around the same price.)

Risks:
- could be just a typo, and they won't sell to you at that price
- could be some sort of a strange repack where they've siphoned off one of the batteries, maybe the charger, maybe the case. (The model # is R2, which means two batteries, but the text only refers to one battery.)

Upsides:
- bare tool sells for $400, so if you get it, you're ahead
- this hits almost as hard as my corded makita rotary hammer

My finger is itching...

((edit: scratched that itch. will let y'all know if it works out.))
Woo! (Two batteries, as hoped.)

edit to say that I suck at adding pictures and then deleting posts that don't have pictures in them.
