1) Ridgid makes some very strong claims about their new permanent magnet motors, but the new Gen5X tools are NOT brushless. 2) Ridgid’s Gen5X tools and batteries will be compatible with all of their other 18V X4 tools, batteries, and chargers. June Update: A couple of new Gen5X accessories popped up at Home Depot, including a gooseneck LED worklight and a hybrid fan.
There really are too few details for me to form much of an opinion about the new Gen5X tools, but a couple of things do stand out.
First, 780 in-lbs peak torque for the drill and 2,000 in-lbs peak torque for the impact driver?
Hopefully we’ll see some more innovations and developments as part of the Gen5X lineup.
Pretty interesting idea for the keyless chuck on the drill, although I wonder how durable the chuck is.
Looks to me like the battery goes onto the back, with the dust port being offset to the left side. Little disappointment at it not being brushless, but Home Depot wants a $499 price point so you have to make compromises. Love the idea of the integrated LED light but I worry about the quality of the chuck thats left behind. I purchased all DeWalts 20v’s and after a year of work the impact driver will not hold bits, a small drill is burnt up, sawsall does not like to hold blades, and have two batteries that are paper weights.
TTI and Emerson have an agreement where TTI will design, produce, and market power tools under the Ridgid brand in North America. Everything I’ve read about permanent magnet motors describes them as brushless technology. These days, no brand will offer brushless tools without highlighting that they’re brushless. Even if your Home Depot gets these in stock, they might not be able to put them out immediately. Makita is no stranger to circular saws of this size, but it is their first 12V max li-ion cordless version. It might seem like your local tool supply company is from another planet when it comes to finding a good set of quality door lock installation kits. This month (Oct, 2013), Milwaukee Tools is also expanding their cutting tool lineup with their new snap-off knives. We’re also very happy to report that Milwaukee is putting out yet more great FastBack utility knives onto the market. Just like NASA, Diablo launches off the rocket pad with Diablo Tools new easy-to-use website – and a few reciprocating blades to give away as well. Best of all, Diablo is celebrating the new website launch with their “Dare to Compare” reciprocating saw blade giveaway. Made from heavy duty fabrics for a long lifespan and reinforced with stout backer boards for stability and strength, these modestly priced ($29.99 or less) pouches come with a variety of accessories for glue tools, marking tools and even measuring tools so no matter what you do—whether it’s for a living or for fun—you can bet that all your stuff will be stored neatly and be accessible at all times. Coming to an earth-like planet in your solar system this fall – a completely new power tool line from both Bostitch and Porter-Cable! Porter-Cable didn’t want to feel left out of the mix and are also expanding their tool line as well.
Keen Utility (who will be sponsoring our October giveaway to be listed shortly, is proud to support Homes for Our Troops.


Homes for our Troops is a non?profit organization dedicated to “building specially adapted homes for our severely injured veterans at no cost to the veterans we serve.” The organization builds dozens of homes each year for the most severely injured service members who have been wounded in combat operations since September 11, 2001.
News Nirvana – Makita Miter Saw, Rockler Tablet Mounts, DeWalt Drywall Cutter, Jet 3HP Bandsaw and Tons of Milwaukee Stuff! We recently had an opportunity to test out one of the coolest painting tools available right now, the Ryobi ONE+ 18V Power Paint Sprayer.
The Ryobi is the only cordless paint sprayer in its class and it’s powered by an 18V lithium-ion battery which is compatible with the full line of Ryobi ONE+ cordless power tools. The unit is relatively quite but it does go through paint faster than you may realize and covers more area than you think. We covered an outdoor chair in 3 minutes that took 20 minutes with a brush so this sprayer is definitely a time saver. It does take a couple seconds for the paint to pump through the system and be prepared when it does. Keep drafts and wind at a minimum as over spray will definitely be an issue with this unit so take care to clear the area of anything you don’t want getting painted. The power and convenience of today’s lithium-ion cordless tools is amazing and the Ryobi would be a welcome addition to any homeowners arsenal of power tools.

DeWalt quality cordless screwdriver with 80 in-lbs of maximum torque, provides a superior power to weight ratio in a variety of fastening applications. This handy 7.2V Cordless Screwdriver is lightweight with variable speed, reversing 0-500 rpm and has an adjustable two-position handle (straight or pistol grip). When the new product family launches, there will be just two products, a 5pc combo kit (R9652), and a random orbit sander (R8606). Maybe a couple of new brushless tools will be released later on, but there hasn’t been any indication of this. It looks to be quite a bit more compact than Craftsman’s Nextec trim saw of the same blade size, and is perfectly sized for quick cutting operations. We found compatible general purpose and plywood blades by Oshlun, Makita, Shark, Porter Cable and Oldham.
You won’t have to take a trip to Area 51 to find the latest and greatest tools and materials in the universe. You’ll need a set of hole saws, an assortment of drill bits and a pretty good template to set a lock in a blank door slab – and that often means lots of different stuff, from lots of different suppliers.
Whether you need to cut drywall, cardboard, rigid foam or even do an alien autopsy or two, the new snap-off knife line from Milwaukee feature acetone resistant housings and iron-carbide blades for maximum cutting efficiency and precision.
The new website features product demo videos, comparable product displays and a new and improved search tool to help you find the perfect blade to suit any cutting task at hand.
According to Diablo, their high-end bi-metal reciprocating blades are designed to last four times longer than traditional blades. If you’re looking for a tool storage system that not only stores all of your stuff with ease, yet is portable enough to take wherever you go, then look no further than the 24” shop stand apron from Rockler Woodworking and Hardware. Take a look at the Rockler website today for more information on this and many of their other great tools, materials and accessories.


Bostitch is unveiling their new line of professional power tools designed for today’s contractors and the heavy strain the modern day jobsite places on tools. This fall, you can look for six new 20 Volt MAX Linked System cordless tools, combination kits and lithium ion batteries.
Revenue from some of their killer shoes and sandals (utility and otherwise) will help raise funds to support the ongoing home builds for severely wounded veterans. It feels great in your hand and the grip should work for large and small hands just as well.
Simply load up the paint container with paint or stain and it easily locks into place on the unit. The time and energy saved with a sprayer is amazing but make sure you test it first to get a feel for the spray pattern and amount of over spray you’ll encounter. This powerful cordless screwdriver also features a 16-position adjustable clutch, 80 in-lbs of maximum torque and a professional grade switch with overload protection. They are a sub company of Milwaukee and they like to keep the good stuff for their strong brand. It would have been nice if Dewalt did atleast allow and adapter from the 20v max to the 18v xrp tools, but Dewalt wants you in a totally now platform.
If I want a new release, I often have to ask an associate to climb the stacks and dig into an unopened shipping carton. I’ve hit about 6 different home depots in the East Valley area of Phoenix over the past few weeks hoping for some luck. Instead, just sit back and take a look at the newest stuff from Milwaukee, Diablo, Porter-Cable, Rockler and Bostitch. There are a wide variety of sizes and will be available this October anywhere Milwaukee tools are sold.
Unfortunately demand was so hot for these free blades they’re already gone, but Diablo is threatening to do another giveaway soon. These new Porter-Cable tools are designed to meet the expectations of the hard working tradesman, but without the high price tag associated with quality construction-grade power tools. From September 1, 2013 through October 15, 2013 at select KEEN Utility retailers across the US, KEEN will donate $5 to Homes for our Troops for every pair of KEEN Utility boots purchased.
New homes that are accessible and customized for the homeowner’s needs post-­?injury are then built through donations of time and materials from dedicated volunteers, craftsmen and corporate sponsors. Those aliens from Roswell haven’t got anything on us, because we’ve got the future right here and now. Visit the Milwaukee website here for more details on all of their latest tools and materials.
Visit the Diablo website here to check out the new site and keep tabs on their next crazy giveaway. That way, you can still afford some gas for your intergalactic cruiser when traveling from job to job.
Retailers can also match the KEEN Utility donation, doubling the action at up to $10 per boot purchase.
So put on your tinfoil hat, get yourself strapped into your space suit and get ready to blast off with another News Nirvana!
