• Ok so I’m really excited to get the new milwaulkee fuel miter saw. Here is what I want to do. I have an extra 4.0 amp battery and I want to wire a connector from an rc car to it so I can have it on the saw and plug a charger into it at the same time. This way if I’m near power I can have it charging constantly when I’m away taking measurements…[Read more]

  • Would this work for cutting holes in mdf and Masonite. I would love to be able to use one tool when cutting out holes in vanities. Doesn’t look strong enough though.

  • Funny be for getting on this site I had only recently seen Bosch nail guns in the store so I thought they were brand new. Guess I’m a little off. Still trying to get first hand review on the omer Finnish guns.

  • So is there any estimate on price or eta. I can’t find any info other than this thread and I wish I would not have seen it. I want it. It would be nice not to have to worry about tripping breakers with a compressor and saw or for shoeing a house in and out no cords with the new cordless guns. Can’t wait.

    If your OK at math on 45 degree miter you just subtract the width from the long point to get a short point measurement. Just curious why are you measuring from the short point? can you not measure and mark on the other side. Sorry if I’m missing something. I was taught early on no jigs or blocks for reveals you need to be able to eye it and do…[Read more]

  • Do you know what bearings go out. I’ve looked at parts diagrams and there are so many in the front I don’t want to just through parts at it. And I don’t have a good back up saw so a month at the service center when we are swamped would really suck. I hope it is the bearings because I can’t find a 10 inch saw I really like for a job site saw.…[Read more]

  • Oh and on the 780 the blade goes very deep into the base and way behind the fence. I think it us designed to cut boards set at a 45 to the fence with the point going through the fence. If not the designed purpose it works on wide skirt boards. And my real concern was the angle the teeth are contacting the wood. Like with shoe against the fence…[Read more]

  • Thanks for all the replies. OK I run tenru silencer 80 or 100 tooth blades depending on material. I also have a black makita blade 80t a 96t Diablo and a full kirf Bosch 80t. Of all the blades the makita deflected the least and it is the thinnest. The Bosch was by far the worst. I had to make a cut a quarter long and then take 3 shavers to my…[Read more]

  • ian replied to the topic Top handle or barrel grip? in the forum Jig Saws 5 years, 5 months ago

    Another time cutting upside down comes in handy is when coping crown molding. Or coping base it let’s you follow the line and especially on crown get a 47 degree or greater back cut. I would love to try a barrel grip and my next one will be a barrel grip for the greater control it offers.

  • OK so I am fed up with my flat miters having a slight curve in the middle of them. I have noticed this does not happen on my bosses 10 inch makita or our old 10 inch Milwaukee. So my thought was to get a Dewalt dw717. Well I looked at one in the store and there is no way to securely lock the bevel in place. I then tried a 10 inch blade on my…[Read more]

  • I got to use the senco 16ga angled finish nailer today. I shot a few nails into the small inside part of the casing and it didn’t split. The nail hole was only slightly bigger than the 18ga. I think if I could only have one gun that would be it. Makes it a much harder choice for a cordless gun. But the gun was a senco 33mp I think. I’d…[Read more]

  • How do you get the base to follow a wall tightly with an 18 gauge. Some times I’ll only use 18 if it is a small pice that I have glued. But most of the time anything into sheet rock is 15ga. And on square 3/4 headers all 15ga. I know the first fuel I’m getting is 18 then 15. I don’t know what I’d need the 16 for other than my tool addiction.…[Read more]

    We all have those red energizer ones from HD. They are great for the winter when the sun goes down too early and you can’t light every corner of a house esp. When running shoe in every room. Also good for loading up and checking a dark house for straggling tools. If you find as many as I seem to you need both hands free to carry them all.

  • I got the Milwaukee one a couple of months ago. So far I really like it. With all brushless tools it charges plenty fast but still slower than the included charger the kit came with. I do wish it had a couple of plug-ins on it and 360 sound gotta give a nod to Bosch for that. Also the on/off button is too easy to hit and adjust under the saw.…[Read more]

  • I don’t think any cordless gun will work well as a main gun for any serious trim carpenter. They are great for punch list and call backs but I couldn’t see trimming 5000 plus Sq ft. That said I will get the Milwaukee one soon as it hits stores. But no one has any experience with the omer 12.50. Guess I’ll take a chance on it.

  • And Milwaukee just came out with a while line of cordless Finnish nail guns. I sold my makita drill set to the new guy on the crew to get him started and switched to the fuel line. Had a food deal going where you but the drill impact kit get 2 5.0ah batteries free. I’ll agree though the batteries are a little loose but the makita batteries get…[Read more]

  • I run a second 15 gauge and an old senco slp20 18 gauge brad nailer. It’s too bad their new guns are not as reliable as they used to be. I wish that little slp could shoot a 2 inch nail.

  • Thanks for all the replies. I have been using pascilod pneumatic oil. For a compressor I’m running a 2hp makita that works great buy I don’t think any oil gets into the air line. From your responses I think I will go to putting in a drop at the end of the week and if it starts sticking go back to daily lubrication. Now if I could only settle…[Read more]

  • So I have a Seco finish pro xp42 and when I bought it 4 months ago. I looked it over and did not see the no oil logo like my slp20 has. So every day I put one drop of oil in before I use it. Well today I had some down time and looked at the manual and it said no librication. I have noticed no adverse affects but the gun has never bump fired…[Read more]
