This is genius!
I'm not sure what the issue might be, because the link works for me. Perhaps you can try finding it through the homepage of that site: www.propane101.com
Nice details, Matt. Good stuff here. Was this your first go with DrainWrap? I'm not a big fan of how it stretches (flattens out the crinkles) as you pull it tight. That said, I'm currently using HydroGap on a re-siding job and have been liking it.
What kind of dog is Chase?
Glad you found the information to be useful. I don't have numbers from every manufacturer, but I can say that Milwaukee and Makita are both claiming about a 50% increase in run time when comparing brushless to brushed.
Interesting discussion guys, and good feedback. Goodnich - I'm curious to know if what you're saying about the blade position on these saws is your opinion, or whether you heard that from somebody involved in the design of circular saws?
Two great responses worth calling out as a concise, non political pieces of food for thought:
KamraKid: "Out of all of my 9-fingered carpentry friends, not one has blamed their equipment for the injury. Instead, each one sites 'Operator Stupidity' or momentary distraction as the cause."
Lawrence: "Anyone that has endured this type of injury now knows how many nerves are in the digits. It is not just stupidity that leads to these injuries--more often than not it is due to personal events taking your mind off your work, or exhaustion trying to finish up an important job. We all are at times elated or down... that's when it happens."
It's great to see so many well-argued points of view. Thanks everybody, keep em coming.
I appreciate you taking time to join the discussion. I would like, though, to insist that the Osorio case was about a tablesaw injury, not a miter saw injury as you suggest.
From the court documents:
"The complaint alleged claims arising from a hand
injury suffered in a construction site accident involving one of Ryobi's table saws."
I'm glad that Larry responded to your comment before I saw it. Also, in keeping with Larry's everlasting reservoir of patience and perspective, he responded far more kindly than I would have. I'll leave it at that, because as we all know, everybody is entitled to their point of view.
Wow...I've never seen or heard of the Bucket Ape before. I'm going to talk to Tom Meehan, our tile expert, about whether he's seen this tool. Seems pretty cool, does it do the job as described?
For those, like me, who didn't know about this thing, the website is www.bucketape.com
