Welcome to our community thing library.
The 40V max XGT® Brushless 10” Dual-Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw Kit (GSL03M1) delivers faster and smoother cutting. The rail-forward design maximizes workspace when the miter saw is positioned flush against a wall. The miter saw has a large 2-13/16” x 12” cutting capacity at 90-degrees. The saw miters 0° to 60° left and right and bevels from 0° to 48° (left and right).
The efficient brushless motor runs cooler and more efficiently for longer tool life. Extension wings all for cutting longer materials and retract for easier storage. An electric brake provides maximum productivity.
For improved efficiency, it is equipped with Auto-start Wireless System technology. AWS® utilizes Bluetooth® technology for wireless communication between the tool and dust extractor (sold separately). When the trigger of the AWS-equipped GSL03M1 is engaged, the AWS-equipped dust extractor powers-up. When the trigger is released, the dust extractor powers-down. AWS is intelligent communication that eliminates cords and excessive noise since the dust extractor runs only when the tool is running.
XGT is a system of equipment, tools, batteries and chargers utilizing 40v max lithium-ion batteries. XGT is engineered to deliver high power to take on high-demand applications, allowing users to completely transition to a cordless job site. XGT is equipped with advanced brushless motor engineering, intelligent digital communication, and superior durability features to outpower, outsmart and outlast the rest.

…engage in building full-fledged library economies based on the commons.
This can take the form of tool libraries, vehicle libraries, clothing libraries, furniture libraries, and more in an effort to curb overproduction, end planned obsolescence, and provide access to an irreducible minimum to all.How We Can Change The World – YouTube
In The Ecology of Freedom, social ecologist Murray Bookchin spends a lot of time exploring three key concepts: usufruct, the irreducible minimum, and complementarity.
These concepts are foundational to any cooperative, caring, and egalitarian society, but particularly to what Bookchin called ‘organic society,’ which consist of the egalitarian tribal societies that can be found in much of human history.
Beginning with the first essential concept for a library economy, usufruct refers to the freedom of individuals or groups in a community to access and use, but not destroy, common resources to supply their needs.
The second essential concept for a library economy is the irreducible minimum, which is the guaranteed provision of the means necessary to sustain life, the level of living that no one should ever fall below, regardless of the size of their individual contribution to the community.
Complementarity is a way of looking at non-hierarchical differences within a society as something generative, where each person contributes a small part to an outcome greater than the sum of its parts.We Need A Library Economy – YouTube
