All milwaukee fuel here.  If i had a delorean, the tools and phone camera are the only gadgets id bring back with me. Oh ..And the ninja blender.


An 18v fuel drill can bore 1-1/4 holes.  That was reserved for 2hander gear drive monster AC drills 20 years ago.  The fuel will break your thumbs just as quick too.
The SuperHawg has a clutch to save your thumbs if you put it in back gear. Not sure how big a hole it will drill.

I have 18 volt dewalt tools. I was given 9 tool combo years ago. I have now upgraded to li-ion 18volt batteries off of Amazon. $50 a battery and they charge in my old chargers. So far they have lasted over a year. Better than the ni-cad forsure. They allow me to keep using these tools. I use the 1/2 impact for my FAOR . Works great. I just welded a bolt to my big flat deck trailer jack. Turned it into a power jack. . I am also thinking of welding a nut on my hydraulic blade tightener instead of the flip handle. Any one done that yet?

I think Bibbyman did, but only used a wrench.

I want to say Bibbyman had done something like that, maybe it's in the useful mods thread?

I was working in my shop yesterday and took note of all of the corded Dewalt tools I have.  It's many more than the number of cordless.  I have a biscuit cutter, random orbit sander, track saw, planer, two 12" double bevel miter saws, pancake compressor and maybe more, but that's what I can think of right now.  I've never had a problem with my corded tools.  I had another dewalt planer for over 20 years and it ran great the day I sold it.

ps.  I just found a 4" angle grinder too.

All my DeWalt stuff was given to me when I retired all 18 volt .In the last three years since a majority of the batteries have degraded .I have maybe 4 good ones from 10 or 12 .So it's a matter of replacing the defective  cells if I find the time .I looked it up on You Tube and it doesn't look like it's that big of a deal .

I do have two side grinders I bought that are Dewalt a small model and a large model .Most of my other corded tools are Milwaukie which includes a 3/4" drill .That unit has oddles of power ,handle with care .
Over the years I've managed to ruin several circular saws by cutting stone ,bricks etc with  dry abrasive blades .For that kind of work I now have two gasoline saws using water cooled blades that are designed for that type work .I got those things on the cheap maybe 8-10 years ago and finally refurbished them summer before last during the lock down .

Now comes impact drills of which I have three .One Milwaukie 1/2" that set me back about $200 and two Hilti's I salvaged from work with a scrap pass .
The TE 12 I had to make brushes for and it does fine .The larger one is part TE 72 and part TE 80 which are the same models one is just an older version .They take the larger bits,chisels etc  SDS max if memory serves .It doesn't get used much but it's a concrete drilling maniac .

My Milwaukee takes SDS Max bits.  I bought one for driving ground rods.  Two thumbs up on it ;D :) 8)   I need to add some demo bits to my arsenal.

Although I don't own any I've used large dry core bits drilling holes large enough to run 4" conduit through using a big drill .It's a miserable job though .You can only get about 3 -4 inches then you have to break out the slug and progress forward .Through a foot of concrete might take 2 hours .More if you hit a reinforcing rod .A diamond water cooled core bit will go through steel but a carbide tipped  dry core bit will not .
