    How long does it generally take from when you send an email request to redeem points, until you get a confirmation back? Sent mine in yesterday early afternoon, haven’t heard anything. Just curious.

    Jim is in Vegas at WOC this week. maybe thats why you havent hear anything about your request 😛

    Anywhere from same day to a week to see the points roll off. Then you wait for it to arrive. In Canada, I see what I asked for from 1 1/2 to almost 3 weeks from the time I send Jim the email request for an item. That’s always been fine by me.

    I just dumped a bunch of piggies on a few things for the router….edge guide, non marring bearings, and a bunch of bits as I have none for the 1/2″ collet. I figured I better get a few.

    Congrats Jim, you’re going to like working with 1/2″ bits. I find they run so much smoother than 1/4″.

    BE the change you want to see.

    sander sander sander, i must hold out for one of the sanders

    What about those specialty metal tools?? Can’t you use that type.

    The shears and nibblers are more for sheet metal work. typically my cuts are simply for length. More of use to hvac guys than me

    It’s great gives you time to save up so it doesn’t look like such a big hit on the piggies.

    Anyone in particular that you are looking at?



    @utopia78
    ,
    Stop looking at the list and that goal will become a reality. Like Brian said you got a few goodies recently even the 12V vac. AGAIN…. Stop looking at the list and stop listening to that little guy on your left shoulder. LOL

    Those would be a nice upgrade. I will eventually look at those type of 18V also as I do have a decent Mil… 18V drill/driver set now.

    I started doing that last year all with Bosch stuff. Funny thing is, most of mine I bought instead of redeeming for. The drills and stuff can sometimes be found at real good sale prices versus the more unusual cordless stuff.

    i stopped using that set of millwaukee 18v drivers since I got the 12v, maybe you should try getting the 12v line and by the time you got that one the brushless impact should be out.

    You may find that getting the non-brushless versions is a lot cheaper. They get clearanced or put on sale at good discounted prices at times and is how I amassed a lot of my drills/drivers I have now since last year.

    You don’t need brushless. Not that it’s a gimmick, as it is not, it is simply it is the ‘latest’ and is premium priced and for DIY use you really don’t need the brushless version. In fact, the brushless versions on some I noticed have lower torque or power ratings than their predecessor non-brushless versions.

    you are absolutely correct that you don’t need brushless, i just wanted for battery life. I wanted to make sure it lasted as long as possible. otherwise i don’t feel the difference in power so far. heck it has kept up with my 18v millwaukee.

    We have a new Powermatic dealer in our neighbourhood. Millbank Country Hardware has taken on the line to complement their King and GI products. Sure is some nice looking machinery.

    Don’t kid yourself about the brushless. I’ve been saying all along that you DIY’ers don’t really need the added power and run-time at the premium you pay for it, but, as an everyday professional contractor, I can tell you that it’s certainly no gimmick. It’s like saying that a BMW isn’t really all that much better than a VW Beetle, as they’ll both get you to where you’re going. Now, brushless in a homeowner grade like Ryobi or similar, I wouldn’t bother.
