ding ding ding, we got a winner :D

did my tip let you in on it? or did you already know? :cool:

anyways, I highly recommend this beast...very powerful, almost 300in lbs for a 12volt and super light, 3.5 Ah lasts all day...the impact has 1060in lbs of torque, thats a good amount for a 12volt...

I already knew just by looking at it and I've had one now for 6 yrs.

Best d@mn cordless drill a person can own, alittle on the pricey side, but worth every penny.

ya daym straight :D nice to meet a fellow panasonic lover here :) I got my set up when they had the impact (no batteries) as a bonus when you bought the drill...been loving every minute owning this baby and i'm always looking for things to drill :naughty:

hitachi drills are powerful as hell as well, and also lasts a long time...not a fan of the alien design but they are definitely top notch...

Hitachi engineers are excellent...very solid products :cool:

i got both of the hitachi's at the Lowes power tools sale a few weeks back...

i think the saw was $165 and the router was $155 or something like that...

Freud saw was $45 from amazon - $30 for amazon card :D ain't I a cheap bastard :laugh:

so alittle over 3 bills...not too bad considering regular price would have been about 4 bills...

looks good, but I'm not digging that table saw. Looks cheaply made, but for small projects, I would think it would be fine.

for $16X i'm not complaining...i honestly think it gives a great value for the money...the portability is pretty nice, theres a bunch of little things like the light for the saw, etc....

if you want something thats really nice, you'd end up spending $400+ i think...

like that bosch 4000-09, always top rated but at a price of over $500, thats 3x the cost of this lil guy...$160 something is a tad more then your usuall delta $99 model at menards/fleetfarm, etc...and i think its way better...

so do you think you can find a better one for $160 something?

I, myself, I would of went with the Ryobi Model BTS15 @ Home Depot for $ 167.00.

About a month ago, HD had this same TS for sale @ $ 129.00 and I should of bought the d@mn thing as a secondary TS for cutting smaller parts.

yeah i was eyeing that one as well...seemed like a great starter ts...if i saw it on sale, i probably would have picked it up for that $129 as well...

too bad the nearest hd wasn't convenient for me...35 min drive...

i figure this wouldn't be that bad of a deal since its on sale...

Hey, ya take the deals where ya can grab them from.

Also, if you want to increase the cutting width, you could built a table around that saw and use a straight edge guide for fence.

Now you need to build a box with complex angles, flush mount, tapers, and anything else i can't think of.

sweet, thanks bro :graduate:

you daym straight i will :naughty:

if my 9510 doesn't sell, i'm gonna made a 2.2 @ 38 for that...

a good budy of mine on here SPLV wants me to help him make two separate boxes for his TC1000 8's for his MR2 turbo...

another buddy wants me to make him a box for 2 TC1K 12's for his SE-R, and i'm gonna build a box for another buddy's MKIII supra turbo for 2 12's...

so it should be a busy season...i'll probably build something sickning for my two SD208's as well...:naughty:

i just might try that curved slot port with the wood bending technique...double :naughty:

That saw is the best overall saw we sell.

I work at Lowe's and have tried several of them.

I use that saw as well. It's rip capacity is over 20"

04-27-2007, 11:22 PM

The table saw.

MikeNeufeld
04-27-2007, 11:33 PM
i would have to say that the bosch 4000 table saw is the most praised and used table saw in the professinal trade industry as well as the 4410l and 4412l mitre saws..... bosch tools.... are slightly ahead of hitachi's stuff, having used hitachi's 10" laser mitre saw and their 18 volt drill...... common... 36v brute power, litheon power..... bosch baby.... the professionals choice.... be careful with the table saws blade height adjustment, make sure to keep it clean always, they tend to get real stiff, kinda like dewalt......lol..

dewalt is junk table saws the carrier tends to warp and makes the blade wobbel.

I don't think Lowe's sells that model of bosche. If the do, then it's pretty big which make it impractical for me.

bosch.. it is a jobsite tablesaw, i am a trim carpenter for a living and i have a buddy who works at kms tools, which has all sorts of woodworking tools... i have had the pleasure of using the millwaukee 28 volt drills, and yes they are very nice, 10.8v bosch pocket driver, 100 3" screws on a charge...( it is true ) 12" hitachi slide compound with digital read out, to heavy for the jobsite, but great for a shop.... the list goes on..... look at metabo....as well, great german made products...

aiight peace out...

you're comparing a $256, 18V lithium, 570in lb, 3.0Ah, 4.6lb hitachi drill vs. a $356 5.6lb with small pack, or $445 6.7lb with fat pack, 600in lb drill??? c'mon, i think its a matter of choice...if you want to spend an extra $100 for that extra 30in lbs of torque...and extra 1lbs of weight...


bosch.. it is a jobsite tablesaw, i am a trim carpenter for a living and i have a buddy who works at kms tools, which has all sorts of woodworking tools... i have had the pleasure of using the millwaukee 28 volt drills, and yes they are very nice, 10.8v bosch pocket driver, 100 3" screws on a charge...( it is true ) 12" hitachi slide compound with digital read out, to heavy for the jobsite, but great for a shop.... the list goes on..... look at metabo....as well, great german made products...

no one is going to argue with you on that...i've already mentioned the 4000-09 is 3x the cost of this one...but i don't think its really worth 3x as much as this one or save me 3x the time...in the future, i'll just spend a grand on a nice full size belt driven one...but for now, i don't think $170 can buy a better saw, in my situation anyways...so if i had $500 to throw on a saw, ofcourse i'd get the bosch...some of us have other things to spend money on...

i have a bosch 500 series washer, got it for $900 at lowes, #2 CR ranked washer, behind a $1500 LG model, top notch...but again, i paid a pretty penny for it...
