Makita 18V Threaded Rod & Rebar Flush-Cut

While at the 2017 Makita New Products Event this year, we got a pretty good look at the impressive new 18v Cordless Steel Rod Flush-Cutter XCS02T1 ($1295, Kit), which is a solid alternative to hydraulic rebar cutting options like the Makita cordless XCS01 ($1999, bare).

Easy Build Project – Kentucky Stick Chair

In our recent project, the Cordless Circular Saw Shootout, we had the opportunity to put 3 great circular saws to the test: the Milwaukee 2731-22 ($429), the Makita XSH01X ($419), and the Dewalt DCS575T2 ($355). In this test we wanted to rank the three in power, run-time and several other parameters which naturally involves lots of wood cutting. We built a simple jig to rip... Read More
