Shoot... this here gadget is fantastic. I grab my Makita drill, an extra battery and hop on the 4x4 to mosey 85 acres out to pasture and fix a gate out near the old pump house. I lose control trying to dodge a field critter, flip over the 4x4 and break both of my legs. I was able to reach for my phone and it was dead. I, however, had this

If you already have tons of Makita batteries and battery chargers around (like we do), and you're always needing a spare cell phone charger, especially when you're out and about (like we do), this thing is worth five times the price they're charging for it. It's just so handy; we throw it in the boat, in the RV, in the truck,

Makita does it again. I work in the health field and was recently involved in running a Covid-19 testing site. I needed something to help keep my phone charged since I wouldn’t have any electrical outlets available. I also wanted something that wouldn’t break the bank. I looked online and found this device by Makita. It was less than

Order these on a whim. I needed some new Dewalt's and saw this package deal for 20v Lithium drill set. Now, I will say this - Title is slightly deceiving as it's 20v Max and 12v base. Still does the job and works extremely well!! Used it to put my 4.5" lift kit on my 92 Jeep and had no issues for the most part. Battery life is decent.

Have many Dewalt tools and like the products. Before purchasing saw a U Tube review that said SOME of the drills in this kit have a problem with the bits falling out of the drill chuck when the trigger is released. So tested drill upon arrival and sure enough the bits kept falling out-the drill stops VERY fast and twists in your hand

My old 18volt out lasted and had more power, drill last about 10 minutes when drilling batteries don't last half as long as my old 18v dealt a, very unsatisfied, only reason I bought it was couldn't find an 18v setup to replace mine that broke, in the middle of a job so had to have something, looking at makita my father in law has them

Was looking for an electric drill to do jobs around the house without waiting for my kids' dad to get to it and found this cute cordless drill set. So far, I've used it to drill a hole into the exterior brick to hang a new mailbox I purchased and once I figured out how to secure the longer bits, it was cutting thru the brick and cement

Used to live with construction workers and wanted a drill that was comparable to theirs. I honestly prefer this one over the dewalt one that is comparable to. You can use pretty much any drill bit you want with this (even dremel sized) and it's light weight and a lot of control over the speed. Honestly gonna use this drill over my dremel,

The answer is, yes! My wife loves her new pink drill, and the matching carry case is, well, adorable! (What smart-dressed working woman doesn't want her drill to match her bag?) Only down side is we can't find a replacement battery anywhere, not even on the manufacturer's website. Always like to have at least one spare to swap out. It

I've always used these snips, I abuse them. Typically, they'll last any good sheet metal man about a year if you use them every day. They're worth the price, as they're literally the only snips I will use to cut sheet metal with. DeWalt, Stanley, Klein, Wiss, I've never seen these brands perform with the strength, ease, durability and

These are the best snips you will ever buy. They are beautifully crafted from the soft durable grips all the way down to the narrow tapered cutting edge. I have tried Wiss, Malco, Lennox, Milwaukee, and pretty much anything else that's worth trying and none compare to these. The cut with the least amount of pressure out of all those. But

got tired of running extension cords for my skill saw. so figured it was time to add another dewalt 20 volt tool to my inventory. didn't notice till after i purchased it was a 6.5" saw but still does the job. And blades are about 25-30% cheaper for the 6.5" then the 7 1/4". Used to cut 2x4's, osb and sawed 2x6's and cut

I like that this saw is lightweight and easy to use. High quality and I like that the brake stops instantly when the trigger is released. Has depth adjustability with measurement gauge and 45 degree angle. It is easy to use and great for cutting sub-floor, stringers, 2x4's and much more. I have had no issues with not being able to keep up

Excellent kit. Batteries are underpowered for anything but the normal drill. They operate the equipment fine but you are only going to get a about 15-20 cuts on a 2x4 with the regular battery. With two batteries you may be okay if your not cutting a lot fast but I built a shed and wished I would have bought a 5 or 6 amp hour battery

This is probably one of the best attachments for the dremel I've used thus far. I purchased this to help me cut my dog's nails, but have found it extremely valuable when doing any type of fine detail work, especially in wood working.

I need this for carving. It reduces the vibration in my hands tremendously and keeps the Dremel tool away from the dust and shavings and keeps it running. Those are the good things. Now for the bad. The flex shaft overheats, a lot! It literally gets smoking hot and melts the rubber insulation off of the metal flex shaft. I keep the flex

I read other comments about this tool, so I reservations. But I ordered it anyway. The first day I tried to use it, it did nothing. I thought I could've done something wrong.

Someone left a candle on my solid surface counter. It burnt the top of the counter. Sanded down the counter with 220 grit up to 2000 grit then used this to buff the counter to a shine.

This was easy enough for me to use as a somewhat novice. Compare to the crummy rotating ones that you can buy at the supermarket, this thing truly does its job.

I am a 64 year young female that loves doing home projects. This sander is perfect for my small hands and does not vibrate my hand to pieces when working for extended periods.

The Dewalt DWE6411K palm sander does a great job as a finish sander - the reason I bought it. Sheet loading and changing is a breeze. Dust collection is superior to any sander I've used to date.

The only issue is the proprietary dust port. I would rather hook up a standard small vacuum hose but can't do it. It just flops around

Sander works beautifully with one problem…the 3 bearing “O” ring snap on dust bag is very badly designed. When sanding a vertical surface as the dust bag begins to fill it falls off dropping and bouncing throwing all its contents all over the floor. I am talking about it being only about 1/3 full. Even when empty it is a very loose

I have used this for a few MAJOR projects so far. But crawling under a skiboat and sanding it down for painting is a LOT nicer not to be tripping over a long extension cord.

I wanted to love this so much because the convenience of it was so appealing. But honestly, this tool has no power. Even with a fully charged battery, this sander doesn't have enough power to rough sand pine. I use it to clean up and fine sand finish pine boards. It does okay with fine sanding, but there's definitely not enough power to

Your going to be disappointed if you think this sander has the power of 110 volt sander.I sand floors for living and thought the 20v would be a lot more powerful not so much .Great for touch ups but kills 5amp battery in about 15 minutes.If your going to do a lot of sanding don't buy this

I just finished building the handrail on my deck and used this great little router to clean up the top rail before the final sanding and stain. It was light weight but packed lots of power.

I use this all the time around the house and shop for all sorts of small projects. It works great and being free of the cord is awesome. I will say that it works best with a larger battery pack.

This is a really good small router, that I use for nearly everything. The motor brakes instantly. It is pretty powerful and handy that it shares the 20V max battery with my other tools.

I've been doing it wrong all these years. Whenever putting a screw into a 2 x 4 I would always drill a pilot hole and then put the screw in with my trusty DeWalt corded 3/8" drill.

I used this with an arbortech turboplane to grind down a 16-18" diameter maple stump ~2-3 inches so it sits below ground. According to the tool box, the tool uses up 800W (their website says 850W) so the DEWALT 4A battery should last around six minutes, plus or minus a minute or so. This is almost exactly what I got out of those

This seemed like a great little crimper until the tension adjustment screw bent and broke off, not as a result of it's adjustment nor over-tightening, but simply as a result of regular use and poor build quality. It seems the crimper must put a lot of force on this tiny screw that holds the tension increment setting in place, yet the tiny
