120vac to 24vdc cordless tool conversion
 
Not sure if this is the place for this, but here goes. I have a 24v Makita cordless miterbox and was wondering if it was possible to convert this to a corded tool? I have a battery that is junk and could us it to connect a power supply to. I have been online and have found 120vac to 24vdc converters.....Any info would help

just because you can do it, doesn't make it a good idea. THere is a DIY site for stuff like this

Never saw a Makita cordless,
Ryobi makes one
and it's hardly worth any effort to prolong
an already miserable life span.

For the price of an adapter that would give you the right amperage to run it, you'd be better off just buying an a/c powered box. What's a delta 8" box $69 ?

Well that was some really good feedback....It is a Makita BLS712 Cordless slide compound miter saw....It is not a peice of junk Ryobi......You cant kill a Makita..........

Never saw one before,
looks pretty cool though.
Maybe cheaper to go to
"Batteries 'R Us" type place,
or an on-line battery site
and just get your batteries rebuilt.
It's a fraction of the new battery price
and no doubt less $ than a converter?
Good luck.
