I have 3 routers and still get fed up of changing bits. Told myself I’m not going to buy any more routers except 1 more.

i myself recently bought d non fuel m12 milwaukee drill\impact combo about 2mths ago

already own 2 18v dewalt cordless drills non hammer 5yrs old - that was waaay b4 lithium came out , lil heavy but works well [somehow i feel d batts living out its life] .... but after reading & seeing so many ppl talk about impact i decided to give it a try , only when u have 1 u see d benefits , d clacking lil annoying at 1st but u get used to it fast , really sends down them screws with ease & not weighty on ur hands like d bigger non lit tools of d past

nowadays i see they making a lit batt version of ALL tools , from table saw to jackhammer to chopsaw etc has a lit version for ppl working where there is no current or prefer d hassle of not using a cord ...

yeah the main market was for cordless drills/hammer/impact
that has pretty much become saturated
regular corded drills will soon be antiques

so the new market is all other tools and using double batteries for increased voltage and power

the m12 line is the most impressive, alot of power for such a small battery. have m12 and m18, dewalts are excellent, once the motor temps go up battery dies super fast.

I meant to say thanks for posting this earlier. I had been planning on buying one and your post came up just in time.

Heard they’re all gone and the price went right back up. Not a problem padna. Glad u GT.

On another “lighter” note. I was looking for a magnetic light and a good headlight. I gave up looking locally as they were either out of stock or not available at the time. Got these on amazon and they work well:

(Got the large; reallll handy when working on the car in all places)

Bright little bugger.

If you guys on your phone and are a bit lazy to use camelcamelcamel, you can use price pulse app to track prices on amazon btw.

Quickly question. I got the makita lxt drill impact kit and it came with some decent 3.0Ah batteries. I saw on eBay that there are reconditioned nobrand batteries on sale. Any one ever tried those? Or better I don’t chinks on batteries...

I'm looking for heavy duty disposable nitrile gloves locally. I want 8 or 9 mil thick gloves. All that I've seen are 4 or 5 mil thickness. SSL carried them before but are now out of stock (supposedly).

I would prefer to buy in the North but any help would be appreciated.

There is nothing wrong with buying aftermarket batteries but the cell quality is what you want to know about. The good companies will advertise or tell you the manufacturer and reserve rating or the individual cell.

I opened OEM battery packs from DeWalt and saw cells in them that could not be purchased for less than the cost of the new pack. YMMV.

Before 18650 li-on cells became popular
The first lithium pack dewalt used to sell was a 36v
It was made up of an early lithium type a123 cell
Those are very strong cells but bulkier and lower voltage.
Many would buy those packs to salvage the cells to use elsewhere.

Bought some no name brand batteries for my cordless Dremel as they were cheaper than the original. Works and have about the same capacity as the originals. I ain’t use it long enough to give a review about the lifespan.

cordless one time, no sense in corded tools these days. the kind of stuff my m18 mid torque could do, i could only do that with a IR gun and 60 gallons +135PSI behind it. plus i could fit it in my backseat and carry all over.

got on a deal at SSL for just over 2k for a 2ah and 5ah battery. Saw recently its like 3600 in allied i think?

supercharged, allied have a HUGE milwaukee for 900, Im going to get a m18 one tho, but i use on similar in work, monster thing yes, ress down and squeeze and u sawing thru 2x2 hollow section like butter.

recently i noticed allied prices getting much better than L&G for milwaukee tools, L&G does give good warranty tho.

I have a corded 1/2 " impact gun MasterCraft is the brand and it works well enough for what I use it for eg taking off tyres, axle nuts and the like. Bought cord because I don't have that much work to warrant the cordless and besides, the nearest wall outlet is 6' ft away so it doh bother me much. I guess it depends on what you want to do with it. For anything that it can't loosen I got a 4' breaker bar lol

Corded impact guns are big and bulky, the cordless options are impressive and compact so you can jack up a car and work on suspension bolts where as a corded will need the car to be really high to work on. Makes my Milwaukee corded look like a dinosaur, bought it yrs ago to do axles and shocks on my car which it does without fail. But I am confident I will make a reason/excuse to buy a cordless impact.
