Dewalt Lithium Ion 4.0Ah Batteries – Same Size & Weight

  It looks like we are seeing a trend with the launch of Metabo 4.0Ah, Hitachi 4.0Ah and New Makita Battery Patent for what is probably their 4.0Ah.

DeWalt Cleanable Hex Bit Holder – Is This Really Necessary?

  The ¼” hex bit holder is very handy and becoming essential as the torque rating on some of these tools continues to climb.

DEWALT Diamond Edge Chop Saw Blade DW8500 to Cut Metal

  We first learned about the DEWALT’s diamond blade DW8500 ($249, Amazon) for cutting metal at last year’s STAFDA trade show and instantly it seemed like a no brainer.

 Last week we did a hands-on with the new DEWALT 12” slide miter saw DWS780 ($599) and the whole time we were thinking how does this compare with the new Bosch 12” Glide Saw GCM12SD (previous post)?
