Review DEWALT DCK590L2 20-Volt MAX Li-Ion 3.0 Ah 5-Tool Combo Kit

22 Aug 2014

I would have given this combo set of cordless power tools 5 stars, but for one egregious flaw. There was no “rip fence” or “edge guide” for the circular saw. Upon discovery of this defect I separately ordered a DeWalt rip fence from Amazon, which didn’t fit on the circular saw (Model DCS393) and had to be returned. After a long time on the phone with DeWalt, I found out that the correct part for the DCS393 circular saw was No. 381091-00 — unavailable at Amazon, but available at Sears and other vendors, when you search by the part number. If you order from another vendor you MUST MAKE SURE that the product includes not only the “edge guide” but the screw and spring that secure it to the shoe on the circular saw. I had one experience in which I ordered the appropriate edge guide, but it did not include the necessary mounting screw or tensioning spring.

Black & Decker CM1936 19-Inch 36-Volt Cordless Electric Lawn Mower With Removable Battery Review

This is the first major redesign of the Black & Decker 19″ Cordless Mower since its introduction. I bought one of the first CMM1000’s shortly after it was introduced in 1996. It worked great for 14 years, with only two battery replacements in that time. I gave it to a friend who is using it and it continues to give great performance.
