    They’re finally here – Eagle Grip locking pliers, made in the USA!!

    https://toolguyd.com/malco-eagle-grip-locking-pliers/

    I have a bunch of them in my shop. Different shapes and brands.
    I made the mistake to look for a price and now I can’t stop the hiccups and stutterings.
    Definitely not for me those eagle thingies.

    Unfortunately this is why most companies move their tool production off shore, price. I’ll admit the price is high but quality costs. The Irwin Vice Grips made in China, just are not the same. The feel is different, the steel is different, they do not last as long.

    We used to have those milwaukee first generation screw driver , my personal opinion , they were the best at the time , very practical and useful
    The best part is that you could just swap out the battery if it died ,

    I finally replaced the B1880 charger (the one I had to drill my own holes) with the newer version that has holes for wall mounting. This charger is also quieter.

    but best of all, this charger allows me to visually see the blinking green light without having to squat down to the waist level.

    I had to upgrade mine recently because I purchased a 8AH battery and it just didn’t want to charge on my older charger, though I was told that it would.

    I did charge my 8ah battery on the BC1880 old charger, it works. It’s odd yours didn’t work, are you sure you pushed the battery all the way in to engage? Sometimes I slid the battery down and it didn’t start charging and I had to push it down another 1/4″ to fully engage the contacts.

    I think they have two models for that charger , you have the basic one , I don’t think it has a fan , I believe that other one has the turbo mode , but also has a fan , and it’s Bluetooth ready ,

    does that mean it’s charger slower than the BC1880 which has a fan?

    That I’m not sure of , could be , but what this charger has I believe is two speed charge , you can check it out on boschtools site , I I think they have something else like two stage charging , first one is fast to get the battery to a certain percentage , then it does a slower charge to top it off , but don’t quote me on this 😊

    That may be, but I forced it down until the charge light flashed, but it never charged beyond the first bar. No error message on the charger. I tried multiple times until I just got a new charger.

    That is indeed puzzling. I used the 6.3ah and 8ah battery on the old BC1880 charger with no issue for a month until I changed it out to the new one. I wonder if you had a bad charger that somehow didn’t work well with the 8ah? I have a second BC1880 charger which I never used and I will try the 8ah battery on it to see if it works. I’ll let you know.

    I’ve had good use of the BC1880 charger’s ,
    That could be a possibility of what you mentioned about the charger being defective
    Lots of reviews on the Bosch site mentioned problems with that charger

    @redwood I tried both my BC1880 chargers on the 8ah battery and they both worked fine and charged from almost zero to 5 bars.

    By the way, the Bosch starter kit with 18V the 4ah battery plus a charger is a free gift at Lowes when purchasing 18V Bosch bare tool, and I think if you buy a 12V Bosch tool they give the 2ah battery charger.

    I am guessing this is because the PROFACRTOR tools are coming they want to clear out some inventory?

    I can get the 18V OMT for $149 with a free 4ah battery and a charger.

    I see that online, but only 7 bare tools get the free stuff.
