    New goodies in the last couple days. Ordered online from Lowes, due to the free battery/charger with purchase of bare tool and the local store never seeming to have them in stock.

    Recip saw seems to be a regular user. Unsure about the grinder, mainly because the guard mounting design. I prefer a simple friction fit, that I can tension just right so I can adjust eh guard by hand as needed, even with the grinder running. The Bosch has a cogged guard mounting, and needs a(almost got discarded with packaging) hex wrench to install and adjust. I’m also slightly concerned about the noise the grinder makes when I back drive the wheel, as it sounds like gears slipping. I opened the gearbox and nothing seems wrong, although I think the gearbox is a bit noisy(just a quick power on in the house without a wheel.)

    I have had corded grinders that the gear backlash was bad enough that the gears slipped, correction was to shim the spindle gear to better mesh, although eventually that grinder died(4″ Craftsman I’d borrowed from my dad, replaced with a 4″ Makita I picked up used that he still uses.)

    Yeah , that’s the first generation lithium recip saw , it’s good , but definitely not as updated as most ,
    As for the grinder , definitely makes more noise than my Bosch corded , but it actually has been pretty good for me , I really like the fact it’s cordless , I’ve used it for cutting anchor bolts 3/8 and 1/2 inch , and also cutting plenty of porcelain tile , it has been covered in dust , but I just blow it out and it’s good to go
    I know some people have complained about the runtime , I have had good experience with it , but I definitely haven’t been using it for heavy duty work
    I know what you mean about the guard , I don’t know why they changed it from the corded version

    I’m sure it’ll handle my needs just fine. My choices up until now were a corded Craftsman Industrial and a corded old Makita, both of which like to lose blades mid cut due to lots of wear on the (tool needed) blade holder.

    Exactly , for most people it will be fine , the only thing I miss from my older Bosch nicad recipe saw is that adjustable shoe for the length , by being able to adjust it , I really could use more of the blade than usual

    Those look pretty interesting ,
    I was interested in the cordless paint sprayer they had years ago , but unfortunately it was discontinued

    Two small things, I couldn’t find a simple compass or scribe in mt small town, I had to go to staples to buy one, and the tint ordered for my spalted wood epoxy coasters came in , I will wait for a warm day to do it so my shop if the correct curing temperature.

    Will

    For my birthday, my son’s got me a new toy (I hinted). It is a Arbortech Power Carving kit. I went berserk and got some additional attachments. It’s really cool what it can, according to the youtube videow.

    I’ve fiddled around a bit, but I have lot’s of ideas, but maybe not the skill yet.

    Congrats Mark! Looks like you can make a big pile of sawdust really quick. It will be interesting to see your finished projects. Looking forward to seeing more.

    Very interesting. You need more lumber to use this tool.

    Yes, that can be a issue. All my CNC work uses 2x and 1x material. This tool doesn’t lend itself with that. I’m still having to wrap my head around how and when to dry the wood and the time it takes.

    With a power carver you should be able to carve wood that is already dry. But carving wood that is green is much easier.

    Have you checked out any info about GreenWood carving?

    That is pretty cool mark, amazing the things you can do with it. You seem to be staying busy in retirement. Enjoy your new set up.
