Whoever takes this, you can get the batteries repackedThanks to eBucks I finally upgraded to a new cordless drill driver.
So putting my old tried and tested kit up for grabs to a DIY-ish home.
1 x Hitachi 12v Cordless Drill Driver.
1 x Hitachi Spotlight torch thingy.
2 x batteries
1 x charger
Apart from batteries not holding charge when they are stored and battery power draining way quicker than years ago.
The drill is still in perfect working order.
We used the torch attachment probably 5 times. Does an Okayish job.
It will work nice for small odd jobs. Might be frustrating to try on bigger projects because you'll run out of battery power a few times before completing everything.
Anyway. The kit is available in Pretoria East if anybody wants to try a few drilling and screwing jobs.
Dusty AF but I'll wipe them down.

I actually avoid getting battery tools now. Used to love it when I had time to do carpentry more often. But if you don't use the tools regularly the batteries don't last.Whoever takes this, you can get the batteries repacked

Those prices are very good, granted at those rates you have to do the fitment yourself, which is easy enough. Last I checked to repack a 12v battery pack was R650 incl labour.Whoever takes this, you can get the batteries repacked
Good point didn't think about the C ratings of laptop cells.Those prices are very good, granted at those rates you have to do the fitment yourself, which is easy enough. Last I checked to repack a 12v battery pack was R650 incl labour.
But as Zuner mentioned best to convert it to Li-ion but there is a caveat, you can't use 18650 cells from laptop batteries in power tools because they aren't high drain cells and can't supply sufficient current. I have tried and the cordless tool will work but when you load the tool heavily, like drilling a bigger hole it will cut out/stop prematurely. High drain cells are expensive, typically around R100 a cell and you need about 6-8 cells for a decent battery pack and then you need a li-ion charger and probably a Bms.
Thanks @HunterNW, collected the stuff earlier this week from your friend living a halfway. I do regret we didn't meet together.

Exactly like the one in the link but both are black. Quality isn't half bad at all.

In EL. It has USB interface to the PC, but not sure what drivers are available after XP. May be fun for the little one to play with even if you don't get it set up on PC. I think I recall getting it working on Windows 7 at one point. Logitech: http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1118407
Sent a pm to confirm acceptance.I'd like to dibs on that for my son please. Thanks. Will pay for delivery.
Yeah he travels around the world a lot for work. Just be patient.Be patient. He originally announced that he will post once he is back (not sure why he did this) but accepted your dibs. Tells me he was in hurry to leave and never stated how long he will be away. Give him benefit of the doubt?
I'm here, back from Zim - just been chaotic. Off to Uganda next week but I've found the box and will pack it and have it ready for collection this weekend. Sorry for the delay. My wife will be home to hand it over.I am not sure what to do here.

Got a pm confirmation that user will let me know dimensions to arrange shipping.
Two weeks have passed since with no response. As there has been several issues on the thread I don't want to add to that. I don't want to harass Daruk either, not my intention but how long is a reasonable time before I write if off as not going to happen?
Thanks. You are in EL and I am on the Jhb so we have to make a plan to have it shipped to me. Send me the dimensions thanks and the address.I'm here, back from Zim - just been chaotic.
