They are pretty close to me. But the shipment of the track is coming from the manufacturer. Who the hell knows, might come directly from China.
If it's manufactured by Makita it could be coming from Buford Ga. Is where they do their US manufacturing. I think it's their distribution hub as well.
I'd like to know when you get it if it's straight and where it came from.

Picked up a Makita 3ah battery today for $58. The Home Depot employees were very surprised at the $72 discount they had to give me :laughing: I'm trying to decide between the DTD170Z and the 154 impact drivers. I don't feel like I need the upgrade, but it's made in Japan and currently on for $130. So I'll probably pick that up this week as well.
The DTD170Z is a nice one , it's called the XDT12 here in the states. It is very strong.

Any good finds for pencil sharpeners that won't break the lead? How about ones capable of both round/flat.

So many renovation jobs I've come across the old hand crank pencil sharpeners in somebody's basement or attic and I kept one I keep in the garage it's awesome to this day.
The lead in the pencils these days suck.

Yes they are Grabber. It's a big steel housing project i'm on now. We use all kinds of screws and the different screws come on different color strips. They are not all green, in fact only those 1¾" screws are green.

My smallest is the 4a but I imagine three smaller amp would be fine, especially being able to charge the dead one.
I use the 2.0ah battery because it hangs on my bags all day long.

Yeah...couple guys have converted theirs to cordless...gonna try to as well.
I use the cordless with out the pogo stick. With a 6.0ah battery it puts in a ton of screws. My screw gun has a setting where it is only on when you press it down to drive the screw saving the battery a lot.
