    I think that the old thread is about to break. So, here is a new one.

    Here is a link to the old thread:

    I had no clue that I have enough points for the dust extractor…thought the 14gal auto was 360k piggies but its the semi….
    guess I have to think about it; semi or auto. but I am pretty sure the auto would be more useful

    It’s having to press that button every time I don’t want the AC to function that would drive me nuts. For me, I’d prefer the semi.

    That would be a sweet redemption! I would like to get into the dust collection myself but I’m nowhere close. I would need the surface grinder with DC and stuff also.
    Was is Instagram where I saw woodman with the cordless circular saw with
    a dust port on it?

    I think the Semi would be the way to go. Especially if you want to run a HEPA filter in there.

    The 1773AK surface grinder they had on the prize list is gone. Ask Aaron. He tried redeeming for it and was told it was discontinued. Seems the newer model that replaced it is not up for grabs instead for redemption…..yet! 😉

    yup i can confirm that, i was going to get it so i can smooth out some areas near the garage. I will end up picking up a grinding disc from atlas machinery for my 4 1/2 inch grinder and do what chris did.

    The 1250DEVS sander and the CSM180BL metal saw are both high on my list at the moment.

    The 1250DEVS is right up there for me, too.

    Do they makethose cup shaped discs that small? I would think it may not have enough power in a 4 1/2 grinder to do that kind of grind effectively. The 1773AK 5in surface grinder runs around 10 amps plus. Four and a half in grinders I think run around 6A typically.

    EDIT: Hey @R-Ice, why don’t you bring over when you come by to pick up your fans for your solar kiln later today your film camera GoPro and we can use my 1773 to grind away some curb that needs a little dressing up from the curb cut I had done last fall when we widened our driveway? I don’t think itwould take more than 15 mins from start to finish. That grinder really boogies. I had just killed the crap growing at the end of my curb earlier this week and was thinking of finding the time just for that in fact.

    The only one on the prize list is the 7in grinder. They do make an accesory dust ported shroud for it too for cup wheels IIRC, but I can’t seem to find it on their website right now. Might be a bit heavy and bulky though being that big. But I’ve thought of getting it also myself.

    That’s why I am getting the semi. Which I will have enough points in a couple days.

    Those are two great items right there Ron, the saw, you already have the batteries for, and the sander would be great in the shop.

    True but the semi don’t have the suction dial

    I think the Semi would be the way to go. Especially if you want to run a HEPA filter in there.

    Makes sense, there are quite a few points to take in consideration.

    that’s going for be a great redemption, have you decided yet which one semi or auto

    nope; not quite ready yet to make a decision

    I’d like to save up for this 14in Bosch cutoff tool kit that I just discovered on the Bosch site, but it’s not currently on the prize list. 🙁
