Re: TBA Meeting (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


Well that's not just cutting 2x4's. I've had Hitachi and Bosch. The early Hitachi was great, the newer one wasn't. The Bosch is great. Both the saws I have are probably more than you need.

A 10" chopsaw would probably be a good fit for you, not a slider. DeWalt will probably have the best price.

Re: TBA Meeting (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


The DW716 is great for basic framing tasks and will last forever. If you're going to get serious about trim work you may need to spend some time to dial it in. That would be true with most saws though.

Great miter saw. Can cut really big crown nested, 6-1/2" base vertically and it is relatively light weight for a 12" saw. Not a fan of the "back fence" which you need to achieve their advertised 2x10 crosscut capacity. I just lift the head of the saw and the material together to crosscut stuff too big for leaving flat on the table. Don't tell the safety police.

I've seen the Flexvolt version of this on sale several times this year for not much more than this, but can't say if or when it will be on sale again.

That thing looks much more substantial than the Stiletto one I bought last year. Every time I use it, I expect it to break in half or chip a tooth.

All my nail pullers come with a person to use it. It's the damnest thing.

Re: TBA Meeting (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


Wasn't sure whether to post this in CAA thread, or TBA thread.

Picked up 16 new to me moulding heads in an online auction. Paid less than 25 cents on the dollar, so they could have qualified for CAA thread as well. Retail is over $4k worth of heads.

Gonna be nice not having to change the most common used knives. Set em up & leave em.

How'd you come up with that #? There's 16 heads there & I paid less than $1k for all of em.

Aftermarket 60 mm heads . sell for $200 each, the 100 mm heads sell for $300 each. These genuine weinig heads, not aftermarket.

Re: TBA Meeting (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


I got one of those deals you guys always talk about at home Depot. Ive been looking for a deal on something from Milwaukee M12 stuff to keep in the shop. I like the idea of M12 in the shop and heavier stuff for on the job. Found a M12 only jigsaw that was used in their hardware section with a 4.0 battery priced for $99. Then got the Fuel M12 impact/hammer drill for $229. Then for some reason it gave me a promotion on the jigsaw for $99 off.

I ended up with drill/impact/jigsaw and 2 - 4.0ah batteries 1 - 2.0ah battery and a charger for $229. Not too bad.

Martinez hammer arrived today.

Appears to be an impressive tool.

Feels more substantial than the Ti-Bone.

I'd buy one and give my tibone to one of my lead carpenters but I'm afraid it would never get beat up like my Tibone is lol
