I have modified lots of power tools, so i can use different battery platforms with different brands. Also because at the time i had makita, some of the tools they offered i did not like and some of these other brand tools i just got to good of a deal on to pass up. This is getting harder and harder to do because of the "smart" communication between the battery and tool that most of the big brands are using. These early examples of li-on tools used max of 3.0 ah batteries and had very little protection built in. Also i have less and less reason to do these mods as I have switched over to Milwaukee and am happy with all the tools they offer.
sorry i can only post one pic per post, whats up with that???? I have done a few other tools as well maybe i can post a second time.
