This red stuff followed me home tonight, I don't know what happened! I saw red and blacked out!

The 9ah was $129, the Radius light was listed at $199 but The Depot price matched it at $149. The blades are 50% off.

Almost bought the M18 Rover mounting light, and the M18 OMT was in my hand, both listed for $88. Picked the Radius light instead because dual power and more light. Might go back for OMT and a 5ah 2-pack.

Will those thin boxes hold 10" blades? I'm thinking of buying one and dedicating it to circular blades.

There's a center divider molded in, that would have to be cut out. I can check later today if a 10" blade would even fit if nobody else line-up with an answer.

Has nothing to do with the US. That's all Canada. They won't let you buy stuff out of country without being able to get their share of the deal.

Just like the US does to you when you cross the border.

My grandfather always used Senco nailers, my dad and uncle have Senco and some Hitachi. I have a shelf full of Paslode guns for the crews at the shop but was looking for a 16ga pneumatic for my personal use. I thought that was a deal but I have never heard of anyone using Bosch nailers, or any real reviews.

If they are that much of a pos I will steer clear.

I actually did that when I was working on boat docks. My guys seem to not like them for some reason. We have a tool chest full of Cheaper tools for the boat, cheap tape measures, hammers excetera. Not trying to drop a T-bone or 40 ft FatMax all the time in the drink. LOL

All of my guys use fuel, and since the company bought them, they do seem to take pretty good care of them over the water. I don't think I've had to buy one yet for that reason.

10" blade fits. 12" does not.
