I have the milwaukee 30deg framing, prefer it to air. I also have the 16ga milwaukee and a grex 23ga (air). When I buy an 18ga, not sure which way I'll go.

I did pick up this little cute thing for "kitchen" tools.

Love their tools...annoyed they moved to Eastern European production but the prices didn't change

Typically buying Wiha now I have yet to receive something that wasn't made in the Fatherland.

Default Tool Thread...

Iíve got a pneumatic 18ga, 16ga, and stapler. It is all porter cable that was in a kit with the compressor. They work but arenít s nice as others Iíve used. The thing that bugs me about the 18ga is inconsistent depth it drives. I did a bit tight and had to hit like 1/3 of the nails with a nail set to get them flush.

Reviews on the 18ga Milwaukee are great. I think Iím leaning toward getting it just for ease of bringing it in and out of the house and around. It should last me forever based on all my other Milwaukee stuff.

I like me some wiha too... these sit next to the new kit.


I have waaaaayyy too much money in:
Festool
Lie Nielsen
Woodpeckers
Wera
Bessey

It would be depressing, but I can think of like 2 tools I regret buying. And in both cases because I went for a "reasonable" option.

Woodpeckers has been one I have not been able to justify yet.

T squares are a hell of a drug. I actually use my incra 150 and 300mm t squares. Which Woodpecker tools have you looked at buying?

I have one of those that stays in my laptop bag. Absolutely indispensable when you get a text message that starts with "Can you look at..." in the company president's office.

I've been slowly cleaning up and painting old tools I got from my grandfather and FIL. I sandblast them sparkling clean, then wipe and paint.

Pipe wrenches are old Rigid ones. My grandfather bought them when he got home after WWII and became a plumber.

After I'm done they look brand new.

The combo wrenches are at least 50yrs old. My FIL had them to work on his 1920's Ford tractor.

I inherited my grandfathers tools. Through my father. And I am fairly certain that at least some date back to the 1920s or so. I have kept them and cleaned them and kept them pretty much as I received them, for nostalgia. I still use some when they are closer than my regular tools. They still work great.

Rustoleum Tool and Equipment Enamel.

I think it was maybe a buck more than the standard spray paint can.

It's some I already had laying around from sprucing up old Honda GX390 engines that were starting to get some rust on the sheetmetal covers.

Is this a good deal? Just need to figure out what drill to get. Is Milwaukee overkill for my intended use? Buy once cry once?

Edit: I see this deal was posted on the previous page. 4ah battery no good for light use?
perhaps too late, but this is where I landed for leaf blower:

https://egopowerplus.com/blower-650cfm/

I used to have one of their weed trimmers as well, but it was stolen out of my garage, replaced with a newer version, and it breaks when trying to use it to edge, called for warranty, and the answer was the weed trimmer is not designed to be used as an edger, so we can't warranty the part.

so don't get their weed trimmer, but the leaf blower is beyond any other I've used for battery powered leaf blowers.

Yeah, an 18V leaf blower is more for blowing out your workshop or something. For most outdoor uses it is a toy.

Re; Milwaukee and HD combo deals

You can usually return the item you don't want/need while the item you want remains at the sale price. If the tool came with the "free" battery and charger and you already have them, you can return that too. The receipt will list the refund value of the "free" batteries and the tool.

I haven't done it yet, but plenty of folks on the Milwaukee Tool Nation FB group have.

Been using this a bunch lately. LOVE IT over plugging in and lugging around my Skil worm drive that weighs about 20lbs. Not a replacement as the Skil is a TANK, but this does 90% of the jobs now.

Nice saw. I have been considering the 7.25 inch one myself.

I've got the Ryobi version. And as long as it has a crisp, sharp blade on it, it does well. Great on plywood and fir. I've even used it to split treated 2x the long way.

I've also used it with an abrasive blade to cut steel tube several times and it also did well.

I've got the Ryobi battery miter saw version of it too. It's okay...strictly light duty for mitering corners on 1x trim or other smaller materials like picture frame stock.
