    @dirtywhiteboy does it only clog when you use the 90 degree pipe, or even when it’s directly shooting straight out? That sucks or blows lol

    It seems to be caused by thin bits of wood get down in there and then clog up. It’s not like the baby bosch with the rooster tail that shoots out the dust pipe.

    So the baby blue is better for not clogging up?
    I’m thinking of getting one soon,

    To bad about the laser Bosch GPL3
    I almost bought one a month ago, it was at a good price, used, maybe that’s why the guy was selling it
    Hope you can get it resolved

    I’ve never had mine clog, but I also don’t run a lot of PT wood through it. Mostly big box dimensional lumber and it’s hooked up to a shop vac.

    Honolulu,, Hi.

    I have a GPL3 that is killing me. To get it to come on it needs slapped and when I turn it off it just keeps blinking till I take out a battery. I guess I need a new one.

    Those things just aren’t very durable. We have killed three of them in the past few years, and no longer buy them. The Dewalt DW084k has proven the most reliable for us, but it is no longer made so eventually I will have to find something else.

    That’s good to know,, I’m in the market now.

    Everything seems to be working alright still but my DeWalt drill has started smelling like those old 90’s electric race cars (burning carbon brushes?) and sparking a bunch.

    It’s a ‘Hit or Miss’ with Dewalt. To be expected. Sorry Charlie….only the best tools get to not be in the Rant Thread.

    Lol! 😉

    That’s not good. Hope it’s under warranty.

    Sounds like it’s time for a tuneup.

    Oh man Charlie, not your last couple of weeks with drills, maybe time to get back to the hand held screwdrivers lol
    And to change the brushes, it’s has to be all opened up I assume

    @theamcguy nope…



    @boschmanbrian
    seriously. Maybe I will get into hand tools after all!



    @doobie
    I’ve never had a problem with any DeWalt tools, and really I’m still not, just nervous after all the bad luck I’ve been having.

    It’s about four years old, but pretty rarely used.

    That’s not too old at old.

    I remember I use to get that smell from my air compressor after I first bought. I blamed it using with a extension cord. I have not smelled that smell in along time now even with using with same extension corded. I have had the air compressor for over 10 years.

    That’s a good point…maybe it’s just breaking itself in. I hope so.

    I guess it could be possible. Time will tell.

    My Milwaukee brushless impact got wet and then hasnt worked. If you take the battery off and put it back on it works for a couple of minutes after that nothing…..click the battery off and back on then it works again….repeat.

    Either way annoying, I sent it in for service, we’ll see

    Hopefully you get it back quickly and in good running order. How wet did it get, a slight drizzle, or a decent down poor?

    Did you try putting it in a bag with a lot of rice?? Also spraying it out with electric motor cleaner has worked for me.
