Dewalt 18v plunge saw and rail

Post by big-all » Fri Jun 19, 2009 5:50 pm

Dewalt 18v plunge saw and rail-

what a simple brilliant idea
the blade trimms the rubber on the guide rail as you cut first time so once its cut you just line the rubber up with the marks/line you want to cut to no adding second marks at 97 or 100mm any more :lol:
if you keep the rubber strips clean no need to clamp
just lay it on the lines and cut

used it on 12mm mdf so far so no challage as yet but pleased so far ThumbUp :lol: :thumbright:

I'm sure it says that you can cut the bottom from a door that is still hung by using it.

yes as well as skirting and laminate somthing like 20mm from the edge plus the blade so ideal for carpets and full thickness boards but a tad to much for 9mm+4mm laminate and underlay but should be ok by the time you add on the threashold strip
if not its new regs to have 8mm clearence for ventilation :roll: :wink:

correction
the actual cut is only 11mm from the surface [9mm plus blade]so ideal for undercutting for laminate

TQ kit Big All. I have the 240volt Dewalt plunge with 1.6 rail and 1 metre. Was using to trim down some oak doors prior to the break and despite it being -2 degrees with a wind chill of -10 it behaved superbly. Had to run 4mm down to nowt and it did it beautifully.

Will be interested to know how long the batts last on a charge.

i absolutly love my plunge its so so easy
used to on dresser tops to save having a batton at the bottom to cover the slight gaps between base and txg used to cut the txg to fit in the rebate on the back and a temporary batton on the bottom for a strait edge which would often bow needing a few mm cut off that would cause splintering
now i just cut the txg a few mm longer butt well into the 9x9mm rebate then to cut flush lay the track and cut
also great for cutting back panels accuratly where you only need a shaving off here and there

1x 2.6 ah battery 1 year old 40mm x600mm oak worktop cut 12 strips or there abouts off the end on a unknown charged battery to a still running state
in other words 7m cross grain cuts on less than a 2.6 ah battery so 2 batteries for a kitcken or a third if your using other tools
