If those new Milwaukee and newish Dewalt cordless ratchet wrenches aren’t your thing, you can dust off those Porter-Cable 20v batteries because they have a new 3/8″ 20v ratchet. They also have a newish 7-1/4″ circular saw. They’re all lower-end tools we’ve seen before from SBD.
Looks like after Lowes spurned them, TSC was looking for a new cordless dancing partner to call their own.
It’s just as well that TSC has them. The Craftsman V20 lineup at Lowe’s is basically Porter-Cable 2.0 in every way imaginable, glass ceiling included.
What is TSC?
Tractor Supply Co.
Good deal on that M12 straight die grinder for $159 plus a free battery. It’s only a 2.0 batt but that’s better deal than they’ve had for most of the year.
Yep, those don’t seem to go on sale all that often. The Ryobi for 99 is also a good deal.
I gotta say the Ryobi PSBDG01 is shockingly good. If you’re not on the Ryobi platform and want a cordless / hoseless die grinder you might consider joining the Ryobi platform just for that one tool.
A DeWalt (20/60) and Milwaukee (m12) whore.
Another great deal at OPT: buy certain bare tool Bosch 18v tools (including a 10” sliding miter saw for $350), get a free 8.0ah battery and charger. The saw is brand new, can’t find any reviews. I may take a chance on it.
I just bought one – showing in stock now. I have no other Bosch 18v and no plans for any more and really don’t care for multiple on top multiple battery platforms, but this looks like a great saw with good features. (Though why they cheaped out and no led shadow light is a huge mistake on their part)
I currently only own both the Dewalt 20v 7.5” saw, which is just a gem, really, as well as the Festool Kapex. Generally I use the little Dewalt for rough stuff and only bring the festool for the trim work. I can literally frame an entire basement with that cordless 7.5” saw, and hooked up to a vac – it has at least as good dust collection as the kapex or darn close.
One would think that a 8.0 battery on a brushless mitersaw would run it for two days of cutting, so I’m not too concerned with only having one battery, but my end goal will be to convert it to use with my Makita batteries if possible.
I’ve owned at least 4-5 Bosch mitersaws, a Makita cordless, 3-4 Dewalt and a couple Kapex’s. Generally have always been impressed with the Bosch models, though Dewalt and Makita make solid saws too of course.
Though the Kapex is generally very accurate and lightweight, I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone really. Too much $$$, too damn finicky and a craptastic blade guard that hangs up and requires dissembling the saw to get the mechanism cleaned up for smooth operation, sometimes a few times within the course of a large job.
Good info, thanks. Dewalt and Bosch have long had similar miter saws (fence, rails, miter adjustment plate) and it’s the simplest and most reliable design . $350 almost seems like a pricing error, I have one ordered as well.
Bosch has the best owner’s manuals of any of the big 4-5. Every single adjustment and feature fully and clearly explained. Festool has the worst, LOL.
Dewalt’s miter saws have a proud history, coming from the Euro made and designed ELU miter saws.
Not sure if you’ve received your Bosch saw yet, but I have and it’s a trainwreck.
Crazy loud, with ringing metal noises, sounds like a wounded animal while cutting, and even when hooked directly up to a professional shop vac with a 35mm vac hose – has the WORST dust collection of any saw I’ve ever used. In fact – hooked up to a vac does NOTHING to improve the amount of saw dust literally scattered L and R and back from the saw.
Don’t get me started on the stupid “work light”. Why they didnt just add a light on the L and create a shadow light is anyone’s guess, but the placement of the single light to the right of the blade offers no lighting on your pencil line and in fact, actually makes it more difficult as it casts odd shadows that help to obscure the marked line.
Other than all that – it’s great (not).
I have figured out how to add my kapex wings to it but honestly am on the fence about even keeping it. It there was a scale from 1-20 for bad tools – it’d be 18 or 20.
How in the world could one saw from a fairly good miter saw company be so poorly designed, anyone?
I just picked up the dewalt 7.5” miter saw and I’m liking it so far doing small trim jobs. I have an after market adapter to use my makita batteries. Makita makes a cordless saw the same size but it’s over double the price – upwards of $600.
Exactly – that’s why I bought the Dewalt as a hard core Makita user; my first Dewalt 20v tool amongst a ton of Makita. Many more added now that Dewalt has gotten their 20v line nicely rounded out. (And doing a better job of it the last few years compared to Makita’s dropping the ball on so many of their new tools, not too mention the price increases and silly XGT launch)
Beware the plastic carry handle of that little Dewalt mitersaw – one side of it where the screw attaches it to the metal of the saw has a way too thin plastic bearing point and the handle will literally just break off while you’re carrying the saw.
The replacement handle Dewalt grudgingly sent me had the same flaw in it’s design. I fashioned an oval washer to allow the screw to really commit to holding the plastic handle on,…
I got a few emails about some promotions:
All-Wall Equipment – running a 15% off sale on all taping knives and mud pans – using code FINISH15
ToolsToday – 15% off all Omniwall items – using code OMNIFALL22
LeeValley – says they have 2 sets of Bessey clamps on special sale:
ToolsPlus is doing a $25 off on $100 for Bosch orders – with free shipping
Acme still honors the get a free battery on several Makita xgt kits, for some reason Home Depot dropped the promotion about a month before official end date.
2.5ah on the drill based kits and 4ah on the saw or larger tool kits.
On the fence about 89.00 M12 jigsaw w/battery???
It’s brushed but that’s not a bad deal even so. If you hit it in store maybe you could return the battery hmmm
Acme also has the Metabo HPT 18v triple hammer impact kit plus a free OMT for 150$ which looks like a great buy.
