Best drill?

Post by etaf »

The cordless circular saw is great. Especially with a Freud 40T blade, very fine cut, cut some shelf brackets an shelf brilliant finish, compared to when i cut MDF using a 24T dewalt blade making a window seat
I did succumb to an angle grinder DCG405FN BUT not so sure , i had my 3ah battery in and when replacing an old fence post bolted to wall - Cutting the bolts 10mm after 8 bolts batt flat, also my son-in-law has DCG412N and he needed to flatten some high points on recent concrete garage floor for screeding - with 5Ah batt lasted 10mins
so maybe worth thinking about more on use - I plan to sharpen an old lawn mower blade so will see how long the batt lasts doing that

I bought my daughter a pink tool set when she moved out :)

You are going to be a bad influence I can tell, I'm gonna have a tool shed to boast about before long Haha....you use an angle grinder to sharpen lawnmower blades, or am I just tired (got up at 04.50am) I never even thought of using an angle grinder to do that, we live and learn :thumbleft: ...haha it must be a dad thing getting the pink tools....I'm not at all girly so why he bought pink is beyond me, but they are still in use so to speak :cheers:
