    Got my dewalt combo kit today

    I didnít need this... I use a recip from work to trim bushes and trees with around the house.. but I always got to make sure it gets back to work... so I decided I wanted a cordless recip. That I donít have to worry about getting back on the truck.

    Somehow I ended up buying a kit with the recip, 6 inch circular saw... hammer drill... an impact I will never use.. and a flashlight... that I am going to use... for a flashlight around the house.

    Donít really need the circ saw... but I have it now... and the hammer drill... I live in a brick..stone house... will be running some conduit outside this summer... maybe.

    Might post some pics later.. but Iím sure everyone has seen all the tools or has them.

    I never buy stuff for myself... sorta splurged this time.

    I definitely donít consider that splurging. Thatís a totally normal tool purchase. This job is hard enough without having to work with shitty tools.

    Anyways why did you say youíd never use the impact? Thatís mostly what I use.

    I bought this for around the house. I have work provided dewalt tools... I just don’t like using them at home because I gotta make sure and load them back onto the truck when I am done at the house.

    I have a dewalt cordless drill at home... got a shed full of power tools... but I like cordless now... the little circular saw... no cord.. it’s quiet... it’s right handed... the hammer drill... sure I will find a use for it... Just don’t see needing the impact around the house.

    You’ll use the circ more than you think
    If I do a job in 30 minutes it's because I spent 30 years learning how to do that in 30 minutes. You owe me for the years, not the minutes.

    A battery circ is convenient. I have an old Craftsman corded circ which works great...except when I don't have it. I had to cut up a bunch of old siding to dispose of for a buddy to haul off and his neighbor had a Milwaukee circ. It cut thru wet cedar siding like butter.
