Or you can dis-assemble the old battery back and buy the replacement batteries? I did this for my old skill rechargable and for my dust helmet battery packs. It takes a lot of time though and if you got the bucks they are probably better spent on a new tool, but if time is no issue!
I too had the thought those motors might work well on my RR (to be). All I know is, they suck a whole bunch of current--I came within a hair of ruining my old Micronta VOM trying to find out. Do you know, they don't make analog VOM's anymore? (That I know of.)
I kept the gears too, for the same reason.
Anyone happen to know what one of those motors draw, under load?
The battery has gone dead in a portable drill that I have. A new battery costs more than a new set. Any ideas as to where I can recycle the old drill?
I was in a pawn shop last week. There were LOTS of old battery powered drills for sale, most without batteries...and they were the better drills...DeWalt, Milwaukee, etc. Obviously, they had been bought by the pawn shop for resale.
