  • Someones listening

    Anyone remember my seemingly crazy idea a couple years ago to use dual 18v batteriesto power 36v tools if connected in series and provide more run time and power if used in parallel?

    Well I think makita must have someone who reads this forum, because they just came out with a battery adapter thatlets you do just that.

    So my bad for not following through on my idea and getting a patent and selling it or licensing to one of the power tool companies.

This our fathers did for us."

        Haven't you heard? You can't tell people that someone's listening. If you do your country will crucify you and force you to leave.

          I have mentioned a battery belt in the past that would allow you plug in a simple jumper cord from the belt to the tool.

            I remember that Rick. A good idea too I thought.
            Similar to the CO2 belt pack that was being offered not long ago for air nailers and staplers.
            I think Lowes was selling them in their stores for a while. Can't remember seeing them lately
            but not really looking for them either.

              Lowes closed out the co2 kit and I bought 1 to replace the junk 1 from harbor freight.

              Pressure regulator spiked and blew the gauge. Depending on temperature, you could be wearing a 700psi bomb

                Back in the mid 90's, Hitachi had a 14.4v I believe that you could clip the battery to your belt and run a cord to the drill. I almost bought one but got the regular drill instead. I don't think the idea caught on because I never saw them again. It would have been a great idea with the larger NiCad batteries.

                  if I wanted a cord running to my tools, I would just plug them in to the wall.

                    that's ok in a shop enviroment or on the ground, but when you're on a ladder, scaffold, high reach, or a roof and moving around a lot having that cord run to your belt sure beats dragging an extension cord behind you, and safer in some ways too I would think.
