Hi everyone, I've been entertaining the idea of making a wall to battery adapter for cordless tools for a while now. The idea is that an adapter can plug into the tool and then connect to the wall outlet to replace a dead battery (until the battery is recharged). I finally got around to it and have built a few of these for Ryobi and Dewalt tool systems. Right now, all the electronics are in a hollowed out battery case, so the adapter can fit normally into a drill/jigsaw/circular saw etc (no external power brick). They work really well, they seem to have the same power as normal battery operation (maybe a little more?). This got me thinking, that I could start selling these (~$40-$50) if there is interest out there, so any feedback would be appreciated. Feel free to ask questions. Thanks, Aaron
I have the 5262-21 corded 1" SDS Plus Rotary Hammer that I bought about 15 months ago. I have never used it because the project I bought it for got put on hold so I could focus on other more important things around the house first. Fast forward 15 months, I open the case up to grab the serial number for inventory purposes, and find oil/grease on the tool exterior and in the case. Wiped it up with a paper towel got the serial number, finished inventory, and now I’m trying to figure out the next step. The majority of my tools are cordless and I’ve never had this happen before so I’m hoping I can get some answers to what are probably stupid simple questions. I would Google them but I always end up with contradicting information. 1. Why would it leak oil? Like I said it’s never been used, it’s stayed flat in the case for 99.999% of the time I’ve owned it, and it stays in the house with most of my smaller tools. 2. What should I do to resolve the leaking? 3. If I should re-oil or grease anything what specific kind of oil/grease do I need. It does have about 4 years left on its warranty so if it would be better to ship it off for Milwaukee to handle that’s fine too. I do prefer to figure out a solution that doesn’t require sending/taking it to a service center because the closest one is 90 minutes away and shipping can be a pain in the ass.
Today I stopped over at Blain's Farm and Fleet and they are currently having a pretty sweet deal on some DeWALT 18 and 12v kits and corded tools. It looks like you trade in a drill and they give you a pretty good discount on one of their kits or corded tool. This deal has been going on for a while I dont know if anyone has posted about it but it ends May 4th.
