    I use milwaukee but rigid is moron proof. Working at homosexual Depot the only power tools we used were rigid and if you hand it to a fresh out of highschool moron with low motivation and butter fingers he will forget it at the top of the bay while drilling in some display holder then go back to get it only for it to fall off and it just bounces back. Definitely better than ryobi.

          Dewalt makes basic b***h tools a year later than Milwaukee and makes no specialty tools.
          When Dewalt starts making pic related, they can be part of the fricking conversation.

          Lol whut? DeWalt is cheaper and more cheaply made than Milwaukee tool for tool. DeWalt is still perfectly adequate, though, and the only reason anyone has any brand loyalty to one over the other is because they got sucked into the battery ecosystem because of a banging bundle deal or some shit.

          Turning brands into team sports/gang wars is the kind of stupid bullshit only insecure men would do.

                until dewalt releases a breakdown of their parts sourcing for their power tools im going to err on the side of caution and assume 90% of the parts in their made in the us line is foreign sourced otherwise they wouldnt need the qualifier "made with global materials"

      Ridgid power tools are trash. Their plumbing and pipefitting tools are THE name brand in those industries, they're made in the US and indestructible. They licensed the name for power tools to the same chink company that makes Ryobi, and they're the same shit quality. They're okay if you just want a cheap tool around the house to use once a year, but they're definitely not professional grade tools. Honestly, I'd sooner buy the new Harbor Freight power tools than Ridgid or Ryobi.

      Makita is garbage
      >t. did several years of framing

      Some Makita tools are still made in Japan and they're good. Most of them are made in China and they're similar to DeWalt or Milwaukee. I'd say Makita is on average a little worse than those two, but their catalog is so enormous it's hilarious, and it's worth something to never have to buy another brand (with another set of batteries) for anything. Makita is top if you're checking model numbers to make sure they're Japanese, or if you're working in a super obscure field, or if you really want a coffee maker or pit bike or other random shit that you can power with your tool batteries.

      Metabo is in sort of the same basket as Makita. They still make tools in Germany, but a lot of them (and all "Metabo HPT") are made in China so you have to check product numbers if you want tools that aren't chink crap in a different color housing. You should probably double check with Metabo, since their chink tools are Ryobi/Porter Cable tier and not Makita/Milwaukee tier.

      Im a Milwaukeebro, but theres a makita impact thats been sitting in my super damp shitty basement, I'm talking partial flooding during rain, and freezing temps in the winter. Its been there for maybe five or more years. It still works, don’t remember the last time it was used before it was forgotten, but its still got juice somehow.

        I did several years of framing and all the older guys used makita religiously while the new generation liked miluwakee.

        They work the same. But makita has a Toyota like reputation at least with the older folks running jobs now that saw the first generation of cordless drills and how makita shit on all of them. I still use makita to this day and moved to electrical. My original impact and drill set and two 4.0 batteries work the same as when new. Been like 7 years using them 40 hours a week.

      a man a culture. I've gotten years of mileage from my AM/FM radio and impact. My Makita items have come to include a 1/2 impact, a Bluetooth speaker, jig saw, circular saw, a car vacuum cleaner, and even a fricking weed whacker. The wife even has those little cute impact/drill with the little batteries. They have a solid eco system, but the quality comes with a price.

        Batteries are what matters.
        Milwaukee or Makita are the only ones worth a shit. Milwaukee makes the specialized tools that use their batteries, but other manufacturers make their own tools that use Makita Batteries (Burndy, Greenlee, Huskie)

        If you're cutting pretty much anything above a 1/0 you need something with mechanical assistance, personally I just use a sawzall for pretty much everything

        Sawzall fricks the strands up on AAC. If the company doesn't have the big cutters like that, you can usually make due with a bandsaw. Frick cutting 2500 with anything though.

        I did several years of framing and all the older guys used makita religiously while the new generation liked miluwakee.

          I've done some contract working for GCS controls. First thought was why the hell are you using a sawzall on control wiring in a Area Alarm Controller.
          The milwaukee wire cutter for 750 kcmil and smaller is great.
          Is there a 18v to anything else adapter for bosch batteries? The best battery I have at full charge lasts about eight or nine cuts of a 2x4 in a table saw. I got the stuff second hand so foolish me.

              Yeah. The largest size wire I've dealt with so far is 600s. I've never worked with aluminum though. I've heard aluminum is much easier to bend.
              The older greenlee wire cutter sometimes got caught on some of the filler material in tray cable after cutting all the way through. The milwaukee cutter was bought as a replacement, and is better though admittedly newer.

        >toolgays are basically arguing over which color of xbox makes the most power
        If different colors of Xbox actually had completely different performance, then sure. That's the thing -- you'd think if the same company makes 4 different brands of the same tool, it'd just be the same damn tool in different colored plastic with different battery sockets to lock you into the respective brands. But no, they gotta make them each a little different, and NOT always in the linear expensive-brand-beats-cheap-brand way you'd expect, though of course that's the general trend.
        So which brand's version of X specific tool is more powerful, is actually a somewhat reasonable discussion to have. It's when the facts about specific tools are reduced to bullet points shouted in support of my-team-beats-your-team homosexualry that it turns cancerous.

        • 1 month ago

          saying they have completely different performance is an exaggeration usually the only difference between the consumer marketed and contractor marketed tools comes down to quality of plastics and switches and the quality of the battery youre getting

          as an example milwaukee and hart are owned by the same company and they have similar performance but the hart uses a shittier plastic and the batteries dont last nearly as long while also getting hotter faster

      Why? It doesn't have reversing clutch and the power feed isn't anywhere near enough for effective drilling. A dedicated drill press is far superior if you want to talk machine shop equipment. And I don't mean belt drive bullshit either, I mean something like a Clausing radial drill that has power feed, auto-stop, a manual clutch, etc.

        because I can use my indicol to locate the hole and make sure it is perfectly on center. most holes you would be drilling on a gun are tiny and being accurate is more important than doing it quickly.. plus if you need to spotface first it's easy to switch to an endmill.
