I would get the flexvolt but the foot print on the 12" slider to big. So after your review I'm now leaning towards the 12 inch non slide flexvolt .

Most people have had good luck with the Makita. If you buy it somewhere you can check it out first, might still be worth a try.

Re: TBA Meeting (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


Tried buying the Makita ac/dc flood light from Acme. With the Makita25 promotion it would be $84.
Dang website wouldn't deduct the $25.
Called in the order and it wouldn't work for the guy either.
Told me to call in tomorrow when regular customer service is in.

The Makita DML805?

I got it. Don't buy it. That's why I have the 2130-20 Milwaukee Rocket Light and the 2365-20 Rover Light. Go that way.

That's it.
I don't really need real bright light, just spread out light. Makita small package, don't want the stand. This weekend I installed a prepainted black entry door on a cloudy day in a house with hardly any light. Couldn't even see my jamb/door line.


Besides I have tons of Makita batteries now. The light in the video would be plenty for me and just parking it on the floor would angle it just right.

Re: TBA Meeting (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


I like the 2365-20 Rover Light. Bright as heck, small and light. Magnetic base and a gripper arm that can hold onto up to something 3" thick (Think 2x4s).

Just saying. The Makita just isn't bright enough. Think 60w bulb.

I've been researching extractors for while and they are good buy on sale. its not the best but gets the job done.
Bosch and Milwaukee have good ones as well.

Found out today that the light didn't qualify for the discount.
First link didn't have it listed, but when you drilled down through it, it was there almost as the last item listed as not qualifying.

Bought it off ebay for about the price it was with the discount.

And this happened today. Wasn't really planning to buy this 80 gal 2 stage compresser, but since I've already gotta go to Topeka to pick up a 5 head sander, figured I might as well throw out a low ball bid , just in case. $175 steal. I'll either use it, or sell for a profit in the summer.

$175???
They practically paid you to take it off their hands for that price.

We blew up two 21 deg. plastic collated Hitachi framing nailers last month; both had their firing pins break.

Just order a Max comparable to see how the brand does. Max SN883RH3 Super Framer 21 Degree Framing Nailer

I also ordered the Hilti PM 2-LG Green Line Laser with PMA 82 Magnetic Bracket from Home Depot for $429, usually $629.00.

I have two of the older MAX models. The made in Japan ones. They are at least 17 or 18 years old. Still going.

Re: TBA Meeting (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


At Home Depot I kept walking by the Shockwave kit and saying I don't "need" it. Then in reorganizing my tools I decided having a bit set in every tool box (M12 box, M18 box, Makita box) that holds an impact or screw gun is more efficient. Not a fan of Milwaukee bits, but they work for a little while, and I do like the cases. This set comes with all the allen bits which I like having in 1/4" drive, so I will reorganize the bit sets into what I want.
