Night and day difference.
Yes there is a need for both the 7¼" saw and the 6½" saw. Makita also has had out for over a year now the 7½" 18voltXs2 sliding Miter Saw , it is also a very nice tool. I don't have the 10" yet because the 7½" cut about everything.

Cool, my flexeel's came today...had to spend a Ben for free shipping, but that wasn't hard haha!

I love these hoses, even though they don't like holly bushes

I got another 50 and a 25 along with some repair parts for the others.

Flexeelstore.com seems to offer the best selection and value I find when shopping these things.

I wanted to get a heated hoodie in safety green. Of course, being a job site tough tools company, they don’t make it in high viz anymore.

Otherwise I'll have to enclose the whole thing. I still need a place for the floor attachment, going to use magnets, the bottom is metal. The expandable wand is what holds the vacuum in. It has a swivel release at the top.

Well I've use the vacuum several times now. For clean up it works very well. As I suspected the bag is pretty small, but they are 39 cents a pc so I don't worry about it to much. I can store a few of the bags in the vacuum so I don't have to go get one when needed.

It's got 4 attachments, but I haven't used the crevasse attachment yet. The round brush, upholstery and floor attachment work great for their functions.

Round brush for inside cabinets, upholstery for larger dust and chip pickup and the floor attachment works good on rugs and bare floors.

Picks up the sawdust on wood floors very well with the brushes turned on. With the roller activated it picks up dust on carpets and most importantly my moving blankets I use to cushion the floors with.

When the bag gets about 1/2 full it's done. Takes about 20 seconds to change out the bag and then suction is back to full. I've bought a hose for it that I can attach to my mini PC belt sander when I am scribing cabinets.

It certainly isn't a shop vac. It isn't going to be a demo vac. But for what I do, trimming and installing moldings and cabinets it's great for the end of the day cleanup. I'm sure I could attach it to a chopsaw and it would work better than not having a vacuum, it would work with a RO sander.

The best thing about it is it's in my truck all the time now.

I see a clearance sticker on the miter box!! I can forgive you if they were all on sale. Looks like you are drinking the light green koolaid.

Re: TBA Meeting (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


Well, the miter box was $50, but I didn't have any Slimy green batteries, so I had to pony up for those and a charger.

And then, being as I've only heard good things about their cordless nailers, I figured why not. I've got a full complement of the Senco cordless that only lasted a couple of years, so if these crap out that fast, at least they didn't cost much. Unlike that Dewalt in the corner. $399 yikes!

The slope was slippery, I admit.

New primer machine. Sent my old one to the coast with my dad...........well I didn't expect it back so I NEEDED a new primer machine.........

Was going to get a new titan 440 to make main machine. And turn my other 440 into a primer. But new ones were almost $1k. This dude was 400 bucks close out at homer.
