My Win7 pc I built  years ago  is running the tv as well as whatever I do in windows from graphics etc etc as I run an extra monitor on it,  but everything else I do on my Linux machine.  Linux can be addictive with all its freebies.  I've only used Apple once in school eons ago so I am not that familiar with it.

Got this Dewalt 20 Volt reciprocating saw today. I like that it’s compact and powerful with a 1.125” stroke. And since I have Dewalt’s 20 volt drill and impact driver, I got this without the charger and batteries. Speaking of batteries, I ordered (2) 5 amp hour spares.

My (2) 5 amp hour batteries arrived today. Charging them now.

Got a new Fluke 62 Max Infrared Thermometer today. I’m gifting my old 62 Mini to a buddy of mine.

Very nice!.  One day I will get a Fluke, but this  morning this is what came in my box  The Banggood $6.99 special.  So far, I've tested it on my morning coffee and it measures 128F.

Had to look at GB and BG to remember where I got it from, but man, I can't take the scorching hot coffee anymore.  Don't like it room temps either.  After doing a few tests with my IR thermometer, 121F feels just about right

You can’t beat the price for sure! I’m sure it’s accurate enough.

I really don't know how accurate it is, but it seems close.  We all know when it comes to critical temps, then only a Fluke should be used.

This is why I spent $86.35. I’m pretty sure it’s way overkill for my needs. That said, I like having the top, or near the top products. I could have bought the 62 Max Plus, but I thought the difference in price wasn’t worth it.

 I do the same thing with certain electric tools that I need to rely on.  I don't skimp there at all.

Cool. We think the same on alot of things. My dad owned a hardware store, so I grew up with the best tools he sold. He really knew his stuff. I guess it rubbed off on me. BTW, I’ll be 66 years old May 2nd.

Turning 60 soon but I still ride motocross bikes so at least I feel young!  Yeah,  you just can't beat quality tools in the long run. Your lucky with your dad owning a hardware store, many peoples dream really.

good thing you got the 5Ah batts, the one on the saw wouldn’t last long.
I got a couple 6Ah FexVolt ones from Amazon for $150 some time ago.
Last much better in my circular saw, vacuum and weedwhacker.
I like the yellow n black.

(and I turned 3/4 century last month)

sorry to say, but IR temps are never accurate anyway
materials all have different IR emission constants
metal, water, ceramic, food, ice, skin – ALL DIFFERENT
found out the hard way
well not really but after i got an IR meter, i wondered why boiling water was never 212

the outside of a glass bowl or cup, with boiling water would be different from the water itself
, a coffee cup would read something else still

not just 1 or 2 degrees but for boiling water, it is like 30 deg F difference!
anyway
the meter does not know what material you are trying to read, either

The 62 Max has adjustable settings for different materials. How well it works, I’m not sure yet.

Happy 75th! Anyway, my drill came with (2) 2 amp hour batteries. They last long enough for my needs. I figured the 5 amp hour batteries will be a better choice since I have to repair my fence which will require a lot of cutting. I paid $107.99 for 2 brand new genuine Dewalts.

Ah yes, got one myself a couple of weeks ago. Posted this picture on a different thread. 

Some of you might be able to guess the light I was aiming at.  I'm still experimenting with emissivity charts available on the net.

You got the 63 max plus. Mine is just the 63 max. Yours is more feature rich, and slightly more accurate than mine.
BTW, I downloaded Fluke’s Emissivity Chart.. Thanks!

Nice multimeter Pete.

I ordered 8 NiCd 4/5 Sub C cells to rebuild two battery packs for a Metabo Powermaxx Powerstation Driver/Drill

Thanks. It’s no Fluke, but I like the 22,000 count resolution, and out of the box, the accuracy is fantastic, according to my little voltage reference rig. I like that it has a simple calibration pot, in case it loses accuracy over time.

Pete, I like Uni-T products. I have the UT210E AC/DC Clamp. You can’t beat it for the price.

One of these

(brass bleeder valve for coolant system)


And several of these (magnetic oil, transmission and differential sump plug; most sumps already have magnets build in, but as you know these screws add huge street cred and add massive wheel horse power Big Smile )

I had to buy something and didn’t have a need for flashlight parts.

I checked it out because of your post… And it’s not leaving my head for a while I guess (until I purchase it I guess Beer ). HKJ just posted a review of a high end Japanese DMM… That sucker costs like $1000, haha no thank you. Big Smile
Maybe I should get a UNI-T DMM and clamp meter too.

Depending on your budget, Brymen 867S is a really nice one for about $175 – fast, accurate, great protection, and 53,000 count. HKJ posted a review of the higher end Brymen 869S not long ago, but the two are very similar.

But for $35, that UT61E was hard to pass. Smile
