Re: TBA Meeting (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


Mine stopped working the other day, need to get it fixed. The hackzall got me through the last couple days I needed a recip saw but just doesn't have the balls of the sawzall. Haven't carried a corded recip saw in years now. In fact I just gave my older corded sawzall to a buddy of mine.

I just got this Milwaukee case to keep with my new LXT recip saw. I store my cordless tools loose so I needed something to keep my blades in. It adjusts for 6 or 9" blades.

I just bought the Fuel sawzall and the circular saw two weeks ago. Both are awsome tools. Makes me want to kick my self for hanging onto the Dewalt 18 volts so long. I haven't used my corded circular saw since.

Well our newer Fein 350 took a crap! Just out of warranty...armature blew up...and our older Fein 250 is screaming...these older non-starlock Bosch's were on clearance at Menards. They seem smooth. Time will tell.

Have that same unit in 18v brushless. It's a beast, but I'm also a Bosch whore, so what do you expect

The Bosch ones are made in Switzerland. I had been happy with our Fein ones before but our last one didn't last 2 years.

Let me know how much you like those and how you think they'd work in a shop. I'm seriously considering a couple for the sides of the work table and being able to do away with clamps for the most parts on horizontal work.

Tom said he uses his every day when he's in the shop working. That was reason enough for me.

The ability to sand, route, domino, or whatever else with ease and transition from piece to piece quickly will be nice.

With as robust as they are, I think what will be lacking most is my creativity when it comes to finding new ways to use them.

Finish sanding piece work was really my biggest benefit that I could think of but might be a big enough benefit to make it worth while.

You could go with pods and a pump from Joe Wood. Not very versatile but it will hold pieces for sanding.

Make the setup like Tom has will happen very soon.

It's setup where you can use it for a larger piece as well with good support still because of the MFT. When you rotate the pod to a 90 angle you can work on the edge of a piece very easily.

Been trying to talk myself out of a used widebelt open end. Problem is I'm not going to finish sand on a widebelt. The real question for me is which to go after first but this past 2 weeks of vacations means I ain't buying anything for at least a month

Vacation was a little more important though.

Bad decision.

Just like the AC in my shop. It was worth losing the vacation. A widebelt would be too.

But go for a solid one. 36"+ would be my choice.
