I had the Makita battery adapter for using Li-Ion batteries in the pod battery tools.
At first they worked great.
Then if you use your tool hard, the contact point on the adapter, the end that goes in the tool not the LI-Ion end, would heat up and melt the plastic that held the contact. Once that plastic melted no more power to the tool.
So for occasional use ok.
For prolong use, adapter is junk.

Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


A supply house had a flyer I picked up and was paging through...
Milwaukee M18 mixer, Trade in a corded mixer and get $100 off a kit that has the mixer, 2 - 5 amp batteries, charger and a carry bag.

I traded an old 1/2" drill motor that I have used to mix concrete and repair mortar. That thing was probably 35 years old, the guys were using it one day mixing something too stiff for the drill and it started smoking.

I told them to leave it alone and we'd figure out another way to mix the stuff up. I come back a few minutes later and the one guys says "Drill no work." When I got into the shop that night I took it apart, the brush holders had melted, so I heated them back up and straitened things out, it's worked ever since, you just can't get it too hot.

Well today I traded that old dog in, I was kinda surprised they would accept it as a mixer, but I carried it in with the paddle chucked up.

Pretty good deal, out the door with tax for about $265.

Coincidentally... A vintage 4" blade right Craftsman just came up for sale locally... $40 with 10 blades.
I'm thinking about it...

I saw it and passed it up. If I'm going to have that heavy of a saw I'll just use the Makita, which I bought for ripping.

Amazingly the Makita is 1.5 lbs lighter than the Mag77lt.

I'm left handed as well. Been using a wormdrive for 35 years as a lefty. I'm used to it. Hell the first wormdrive I used was an old Black and Decker that weighed 150 lbs or more.

I used that new mixer I bought last week.

Man, that is a nice tool, powerful, light, easy to handle and does a quick job of mixing up fast set repair mortar.

Re: TBA Meeting 2 (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


Long trip up to Darcy's over the weekend. But got this behemoth drug home & unloaded. Too much for my little 5000# forklift & the front end loader on my tractor, so I had to call in the neighbor for just a little extra help. 2 tractors & forklift holding it up. It was quite the dance letting it down, but we got it down & rolled into the shop. Got her wired up & plumbed to the dust collector this morning.

We made the decision this fall to build another building for storage & planned to move this saw out there for breaking down material. Nope, that sumbiatch ain't ever moving from that spot until someone else owns it.

My local supplier has trade in deals all the time. Ive never actually given them a trade in. They just honor the price.

Do you think milwaukee wants your old stuff?
