I genuinely would be a great advocate for their products as I always show good results by the tool actually in action in a real life situation. None of that standing in front of a brand spanking clean worktop undoing bolts that have been greased like hell and under torqued to wow the customer.Perhaps you should ask Milwaukee for a job?
Start a yt channel, guys are always getting free tools to review on there milwaukee must do it too.I genuinely would be a great advocate for their products as I always show good results by the tool actually in action in a real life situation.

Come to think of it quite a few friends have bought milwaukee stuff under my recommendation
Talking of chop saws
Are you cutting pipe or solid stock? Is your Starrett one of the old school powered hacksaw types? I always find the cuts on things like that just like a decent hacksaw job (surprise) and a big circular disk can give seriously impressive surface finishes.Talking of chop saws
I went on a bit of a spiral of doom/money spending the other day and told myself I wanted a bigger chop saw or a saw that's a bit better than my Starrett unit. I am not too happy with the cut on the Starret if i'm honest and i've already gone through a few blades particularly because its a dry cutting saw.
I looked at abrasive chop saws to see how bad they are compared to a cold chop saw (slow, the finish is s**t and they can flex) not to mention the sparks and dust.
So thought hmmmm a cold chop saw would be better then and then looking at how you can't just have one disc for everything (I do a lot of mild steel AND stainless) so A - swapping between the two is not ideal and B - the stainless blades are significantly more expensive and you can really destroy them pretty easily.
So plan C, it's currently in my basket after speaking to a few custom exhaust and fab shops (GizFab if anyone knows?)
10" over the 8" model.
Coolant pump too and the reliability.
Going to hit buy as soon as I have a job confirmed bcos it is infact £1.8k lol

Does make it a s**t ton faster though.Impact gun and spring compressors is the risky one
Haha on that video he goes "briytish hairy-tidge"Are you cutting pipe or solid stock? Is your Starrett one of the old school powered hacksaw types? I always find the cuts on things like that just like a decent hacksaw job (surprise) and a big circular disk can give seriously impressive surface finishes.
Might be worth finding an exhaust place that does titanium too as titanium can be a t**t to cut because it work hardens as you go along, my thinking is if they get reliable good cuts on titanium, steel should be a doddle!
What make/model is the lump you've pictured?
You don't fancy one of these?
How slow is that.
I’ve used these at work & love them, I’d have preferred one to the Milwaukee stubby I bought. Yes the Milwaukee is more powerful but the shape of this snap on impact is perfect for getting in places you’d want to with a 3/8”. The Milwaukee misses that longer snout and I find I have to use extensions or longer sockets which ends up reducing torque so the extra power is negated a lot of the time. The snap on is plenty powerful enough anyway for a 3/8” compact impact.Just picked up a new 14.4v Microlithium CT761 3/8 gun and 2 batteries. I’m only a hobbyist mechanic these days, so should be fine for me.
Not used it yet, but it’s nice and compact so looking forward to it. The big boy 1/2 DeWalt is great but it’s a cumbersome unit for smaller jobs. These are rated to 120lbsft but I’ve seen them undo at 150lbsft.

Why are you securing it into the mortar and not the brick? Surely the brick will be the strongest anchoring point by far?
Ever drilled into breezeblock/block walls? They crumble like f**k half the time.Why are you securing it into the mortar and not the brick? Surely the brick will be the strongest anchoring point by far?
Of course you need to drill into the brick ... perfect excuse to buy an SDS
Concrete block, cinder block, breeze block, thermal block, whatever you want to call them, all much of a muchness, soft as s**t and end up crumbling when you drill them.I'm no builder or expert but they look like concrete blocks rather than breeze block?
Cheers, it's nice to have them all together.
You taking piss?Cheers, it's nice to have them all together.
If there's one valuable thing I've learnt from doing car stuff in the garage is that tidyness is key. No matter what you're doing, how great or little the job is, keep tidy throughout as it reduces the stress and headaches later on.
When I'm working on a car now I'll always have two metal magnetic trays. One for tools and one for bolts/fasteners and clips.
There's nothing worse than tripping over screwdrivers, kicking bolts as you move around the garage, resting tools in a manic game of jenga like state on the scuttle panel....just no. Makes things happen so much smoother when you know where everything is.
I feel exactly the same when it comes to tidyness in the tool box too. Dedicated drawer for torx, flat, Philips, measuring drawer, welding drawer, marking and cutting drawer. Anything else makes my nipples lactate in sadness
