Milwaukee 2897-22 Drill and Impact Driver Kit

Milwaukee 2897-22 Drill and Impact Driver Kit

09-23-2016 02:31 PM by PPK | 2 comments »

I didn’t see any reviews on the recent Milwaukee line of FUEL drills/impacts/tools on LJ’s yet, so here’s my contribution. I recently bought the drill/impact driver kit. It’s the M18 kit with the items shown in the stock photo above. The batteries are 5.0 amp hour and last a LLLOOOOONNNNGGG time. I couldn’t get one to heat up either when using it hard, so that’s a good sign. The drill: Not much heavier than my 14.4 volt makita. Has more RPM’s, a...

Milwaukee 2799-22CX M18 Compact Brushless Hammer Drill/Brushless Impact Combo Kit

Milwaukee 2799-22CX M18 Compact Brushless Hammer Drill/Brushless Impact Combo Kit

new hotness vs old busted BACKGROUNDI was a Dewalt guy for years, and have had an old nicad drill and driver for the last 10 years or so that have served me well, but after my old drill got dropped on the concrete floor and cracked, I decided to treat myself to a brushless setup. I had been wanting to go brushless for awhile and this was the excuse I needed. I pretty much settled on the Milwaukee line due to a variety of factors, including the availability of the 18/12v combo charging ...

Milwaukee 3.5 HP Router

Milwaukee 3.5 HP Router

08-09-2016 01:43 PM by PPK | 14 comments »

I feel compelled to review this router, since It runs a lot better than my old “tried and true” Porter Cable 7518 (the similar 3.5 HP model in the Porter Cable Brand, if you’re not familiar with the model no.) Warning, this is somewhat more of a comparison, but it’s also a review too. I have been running this unit with the 3.5” raised panel cutter. It has shown no signs of heating up excessively, no vibration, and the motor maintains its low speed setting w...

A Great Drill Driver and the Useful Hackzall

A Great Drill Driver and the Useful Hackzall

04-27-2016 10:11 PM by Redoak49 | 4 comments »

I had added this Milwaukee M12 drill to my Christmas list this year. I had tried it at the store and it was a nice size. Thankfully, my wife got it for me and it came in a kit with the drill/driver, charger, two batteries and the Hackzall. The drill driver works well and has plenty of power and a good clutch on it. It is solidly built and feels good in my hand. It is now my go to drill/driver and is lighter than the 18V one that I have. The chuck works well and it is easy to tighten a...

more than I will ever need

more than I will ever need

01-26-2016 10:31 AM by kenthemadcarpenter | 6 comments »

I had gotten this as a christmas gift about four years ago. This is more than I will ever need in a circular saw. It has several features that I really l like, Tool free bevel adjustment is quick and easy to use. Tilt lock Handle adjustment is a nice addition. She is a beast when it comes to power, she cuts through materials like butter.

Milwaukee Heat Gun

About 8 days ago my heatgun went Titsup on my. It wasn’t much, just a cheap Craftsman from about 35 years ago and it worked OK but never seemed to be that great.So a few days ago I was playing on the Bay of E and found a Milwaukee Dual Heat unit for $5, buy it now with $5 shipping.I figured that if it was junk, I wouldn’t lose much so I bought it.It arrived today and I had to try it out for it’s intended purpose, which for me is bending the binding for guitars. I was cert...

Milwaukee Self Feed Bits

Milwaukee Self Feed Bits

08-09-2014 11:03 PM by natenaaron | 4 comments »

I am making something that needed a 1 3/8 inch hole cut. I whipped out the 1 3/8 hole saw I have and it was not big enough. After a quick measure it turns out it is NOT 1 3/8, so it was off to the hardware store. The only 1 3/8 hole cutting thing they had was an expensive Milwaukee self feeding bit. My choice was to spend the money and work on my project today, or order something and wait a week or so. I spent the money and I am glad I did. Being the anal type person I am, I always t...

New Router for the Router Table

New Router for the Router Table

02-09-2014 10:04 PM by Jerry | 11 comments »

This router is amazing. Quiet, powerful – 2.25 HP, variable speed – 10,000-24,000 RPM, a breeze to adjust, which you can do three ways. 1) With the adjustment screw2) By pushing the release button you can adjust quickly to a given range, then dial it in3) Best of all, with a T-Handle wrench ( provided as part of the package ) through the bottom of the router, this makes it perfect for a router table, and you don’t have the added expense of a router lift. You can also ...

An oldie but a goodie

An oldie but a goodie

01-10-2014 05:00 PM by Mainiac Matt | 7 comments »

I purchased this new in ‘96 from Woodworkers Whse, in a package deal with a stand for ~$400. Milwaukee chop saws and sliders were the king of the hill back then, as the only dual bevel miter SCMS on the market, with the motor mounted high and belt drive, was the Hitachi, and it was a lot more expensive. This is b4 the day of the 12” DeWalt sliders, which took over the market several years later. This saw has proven to be a real work horse. I was building a timber frame house...

Milwaukee 3/8" hammer drill

Milwaukee 3/8" hammer drill

10-03-2013 09:44 PM by PatrickB | 3 comments »

This is a review, hence it is just my opinion. To the best of knowledge the picture is a true and actual representation of the item I am reviewing. Sorry about the above but others have made these little disclaimers necessary.So onto the drill. Yep, I give it 5 stars after what I just put it through. I just tapped about 30 holes in 1/2” aluminum (7/16” x 14tpi) with this little puppy and it did not flinch one bit. I have had this drill for quite sometime now and have used it for a...
