    Milwaukee does have some nice stuff, I'm not sure there's a real substantial difference though.

    Me either unless you jump to the fuel lineup which is brushless. The normal stuff both seem about the same. The Milwaukee is a bit heavier in the hand which I actually like feels better to me

    Yeah, DeWalt doesn't have same top end. And some.of the specialty tools are different too, in terms of what's available.

    +1 on Makita, reason being, you can get a replacement battery for just about everything they’ve ever made. Other companies discontinue them and force you to buy new shit.

    I got mine because @Redmann Gave me a older impact driver and some batteries. So I grabbed a cordless trim router for my last project (I think they are the only company that makes a cordless one). And they all work really well too

    Still pretty much the same. Storage and paint booth on one side, fab on the other. We need to get the door put in between them and more lights up this winter, but house renovation has taken priority over building the shop.

    My wife learned about it :)

    You're bed side removal thread was very helpful, by the way.

    Are you going to have any problems using your bed rack with those?

    Not once I build a new one. The current version won't fit any more.

    I'll have a bed rack for sale soon.
