What are the new features of the CT 26, CT 36 and CT 48?
So, you're probably interested in knowing what's new about the new CT models. They feature HEPA filtration, variable suction control, tool-triggered operation, SysDock tool storage capabilities, an antistatic hose and many of the other common features that you've come to expect from the Festool's industry leading dust extractors.
One new, and very unique, feature is the innovative self-cleaning filter bags. If you've used other dust extractors, you may have experienced the issue of fine dust particles becoming caked to the inner lining of the vacuum bag. Festool has solved this problem by creating a filter bag from a fleece material that is designed to collapse and expand as the power is cycled on the dust extractor. This causes the dust cake to break up and disperse to the bottom of the bag.
The advantage is that there is no loss of suction as the bag fills up, which is the case with other manufacturer's models. Clogging of the filter bag can also create unnecessary strain on the motor and lead to premature failure, a costly repair or replacement.

Lamello exhibited recently in Germany at Ligna and Interzum trade shows. Another new machine was unveiled, the new "TOP 21" biscuit joiner which will eventually replace the Top 20 S4 model. This new biscuit joiner offers all of the features and benefits of the Top 20 series including adjustable height cutter with step memory system, an 800 watt powerful motor, and now a newly designed base plate, swiveling front stop and stop square that are now are flush on both sides for efficient positioning of the machine on the edge of the work piece. The new stop square with smooth running, precise guidance provides fast, exact setting of the groove position. We expect to have Top 21 machines available in August of this year.

DEWALT has announced the launch of its new 20 Volt MAX Lithium Ion system, which includes a compact drill/driver (DCD780c2), premium drill/driver (DCD980L2), two impact drivers (DCF885C2 and DCF885L2), compact hammer drill (DCD785C2), premium hammer drill (DCD985L2), reciprocating saw (DCS380L1), circular saw (DCS391L1), SDS rotary hammer (DCH213L2), right angle drill (DCD740C1) and work light (DCL040). The 20 Volt MAX Lithium Ion line was designed with innovations for high performing, long-lasting and comfortable tools professionals demand.
The Dewalt 20V cordless tools are ideal for professionals tasked with heavy-duty applications, including remodelers, carpenters, woodworkers, cabinet installers, electricians, mechanical contractors, plumbers and maintenance professionals.
The new 20 Volt MAX system features compact and premium tools that offer 1.5 Amp Hour (Ah), and 3.0 Ah Lithium Ion batteries which provide up to 35 percent more runtime than existing 18 Volt Lithium Ion battery technology, so that professionals can select the tool and battery power that is more appropriate for the application at hand.
The tools in the 20 Volt MAX system feature a slim handle design that is more comfortable for extensive use based on significant field testing. In addition, the engineering and design team adjusted the product footprint and weight allocation for ideal balance and a lightweight feel. The 3.0 Ah 20 Volt MAX battery is 38 percent lighter than DEWALT’s existing DC9180 18 Volt Lithium Ion battery. These improvements are essential to contractors who are using the tools all day long on the jobsite.
Each item in the 20 Volt MAX Lithium Ion line includes innovative features that allow for productivity and ease of use on the jobsite. For example, the impact drivers (DCF885C2 and DCF885L2) feature a ¼-inch hex chuck capable of one-handed bit loading and each tool accepts one-inch bit tips directly into the chuck to minimize front to back length of the tool.
The new impact drivers also include three LED lights positioned in a circle around the chuck. With a 20-second delay, these lights provide visibility and help to eliminate shadows in dimly lit spaces. The remaining fastening and drilling tools in the line feature an LED light above the trigger to provide visibility that also includes the 20-second delay.
DEWALT also has included innovation in the battery chargers themselves, as they feature dual voltage charging capabilities, making them compatible with 12 Volt MAX and 20 Volt MAX DEWALT Lithium Ion batteries. The new 12 Volt MAX – 20 Volt MAX Lithium Ion heavy duty chargers, DCB101 and vehicle charger DCB119, offer high-visibility LEDs in the same blink patterns as existing DEWALT offerings, molded cord wrap for optimal storage, and quick charge time of 30 minutes for the 1.5 Ah and 60 minutes for the 3.0 Ah Lithium Ion batteries. The DCB119 vehicle charger offers a 90-minute charge time.
DEWALT-designed electronics are built into the switches of all 20 Volt MAX Lithium Ion tools and lights. These electronics provide maximum life for the tools and batteries by helping to protect them from overheating, overloading and deep discharge during use. All premium drill models in the new 20 Volt MAX line (DCD985L2, DCD980L2) feature a three-speed setting which is proprietary to DEWALT. The three-speed settings give professionals the option to select the most appropriate speed for a given task.
The new 20 Volt MAX Lithium Ion system will be available in September 2011 at BurnsTools.com.

We at Burns Tools are big proponents of Festool Vacuums. They all have the auto-start system. But if you have an older dust extractor without the auto-on, we do have a solution: The i-Socket!
The i-Socket Autoswitch was designed by a woodworker for woodworkers. The i-Socket Autoswitch is the ONLY intelligent switch that can control the in-rush of current on startup to eliminate circuit overload with a 7 second delay off.
Connect a vacuum hose to the dust collection port of the tool. Plug the i-Socket Autoswitch into any standard 15A/120V house outlet. Tool plugs into the "TOOL" outlet. Vacuum plugs into the "VAC" outlet. The vacuum switch must be in the ON position for auto-startup.

To protect against this risk, on April 22, 2008, EPA issued a rule requiring the use of lead-safe practices and other actions aimed at preventing lead poisoning. Under the rule, beginning April 22, 2010, contractors performing renovation, repair and painting projects that disturb lead-based paint in homes, child care facilities, and schools built before 1978 must be certified and must follow specific work practices to prevent lead contamination.
One of these requirements is the use of HEPA vacuums when renovating. HEPA stands for “High Efficiency Particulate Air”. We at Burns Power Tools stock both Festool and Fein HEPA vacs. These are both high-end German-made professional dust extractors. If you are searching for HEPA vacs in Massachusetts (MA), or HEPA vacs in Rhode Island (RI), we invite you to visit our showroom. We can demonstrate the features and benefits of both the Fein and the Festool vacs, and can also show you the long-term costs of the replacement accessories for these dust extractors.

The new line of Sweetheart socket chisels are based on the classic 750 design, which is arguably the best Stanley chisel ever made. Machined from high carbon steel, the new Sweetheart chisels sharpen easily and retain a razor-sharp edge over long periods of use. Their side bevels are extra narrow for working in tight corners. This helps the user to avoid inadvertent marring of the work when precise cuts are critical. Designed for striking and paring, the hornbeam handle provides a comfortable feel that transfers energy effectively when struck by a mallet. It also provides a wide butt end, or large sweet spot, for striking accuracy.
Manufactured in Sheffield, England, the new Sweetheart chisels are available in the following sizes: 1/8", 1/4", 3/8", 1/2", 5/8", 3/4", 1", and 1-1/4". With the exception of the largest two chisels (which will retail for approximately $39.99), the Sweetheart™ chisels will retail for approximately $29.99. Also available are two chisel sets; a 4-piece set (Stanley 16-791, $119) as well as an 8-piece set (Stanley 16-793, $199). The Sweetheart 8-piece set features a 1/8" chisel for working in tight spaces that 1/4" chisels cannot access. Both sets come with a leather pouch and all chisels are currently in stock at Burns Tools.
