Broken sometime during the winter of 2016 after a drop into a parking lot and still kicking. I remember it like it was yesterday, the immediate panic as I feared having to gather 1000’s of zip screws after impact .

No worries. @milwaukeetool uses the right materials that can definitely handle the cold temps I work in. Unlike most others.

Q: How hot does a HD9.0 M18 battery get when fully discharged while using the M18 Table Saw ?

A: 129.54 °F

That’s hotter that the huge new M18 brushless motor on the saw .

I’ve received a few DM’s about the treated plywood on the exterior of the #duluthbuild shop and house .

Let’s keep in mind I’m the plumber and heating guy on the project but my brother-in-law who’s building it (it’s his family’s home) decided on the treated plywood for protection against water splash back and snow load. In addition to the treated sheeting he’s also included 24” overhangs on the house, garage and shop. This home is located in Northern Minnesota and will see significant snowfall annually so drifting and melting could be an issue over time. It’s not required by code but when you consider the reasoning behind it you’d think it would be. .

Congrats to @andrewbeaton19 for winning the Milwaukee Close Quarter Cutter giveaway sponsored by @milwaukeetool and @mechanicalhub .. thanks to everyone that participated!

EDIT: NOT USA MADE .

Thank @mick_plumb for the tip. Picked up a couple of the Camco water heater element sockets off @amazon for under $10 each. They fit the 1/2” breaker bar I keep on the truck so that’s a plus. Most 1-1/2” sockets are 3/4” drive which would require an additional bar and that’s more than I need on the truck .

Had some serious fun this past week in Portland. Huge shout out to @keenutility for having us. Here I am holding the Lonsdale boots I made on the assembly line, boxed up and complete with my sticker. #madeintheusa #KEENUtilityMediaEvent

I wasn’t expecting this. It’s great but it did take a while to process, longer than I expected. In the end that would be my only complaint. The whole process was completely free. If you want to see how to get yours replaced for free check out my IGTV video on my profile .

Check out the removable block of rubber/plastic in the new battery compartment. I guess that would make way for a 15+ ah battery? .

20’ ceiling heights can throw a wrench in the works for an otherwise simple heating and cooling load calc. Hell, it’s more like getting hit in the face with that wrench because that space is roughly half of a rather large zone so the math better be accurate or the occupants will not be comfortable .

This space will have a combination of underfloor radiant and runtal baseboard. Why? Because the radiant wouldn’t be enough on its own, neither would the baseboard. The only way to know this before it’s too late is to take the time to understand load calcs and perform them with accuracy. I know most contractors do not perform load calcs if they’re not absolutely required in the permitting process. That’s just asinine. We are professionals, that’s why we are hired to do what we do, so act like a professional and do your job. You won’t die, I’m living proof. #duluthbuild .
