A friend of mine just gave me a dead 18 volt Ridgid hammerdrill. I guess when you put a battery on it a little smoke comes out of the vent holes from the upper back of the drill, but the drill does not turn. Is this drill worth repairing or should I just toss it? I'm wondering if its the brushes that would be doing that and if it is brushes are they easy to get and replace? I tried looking through the parts section of the website, but the only part I could find was the whole motor assembly for about $100. If thats the case, it probably wouldn't be worth it. Any opinions would be appreciated.
