Re: Monkey Business continues its growth...

TOTALLY off topic, sort of...but since you're talking about rebuilding battery packs, if any of you have Milwaukee battery packs, they have recalled a bunch of them over several years production. Send in your old, they send you a new one. ... penElement

I'm really sorry I missed this post. I get my parts at work. We rebuild them on the spot and using my discount it becomes rather affordable to tweak those packs a little. We also have cores saved from old drills that people bring in for recycling as the thermistors and fusible links do go bad in them, usually from vibration.

If you are able to find replacement 18 volt "XR" DeWalt packs for $60 each I would jump on it. The cost of cells keeps going up and it would cost $54.99 for me to rebuild them (granted they are a better battery the customer does have to give 24-48 hours for turnaround time). I think our OEM replacements packs cost more than that.

Oh as a side note to all of you who may have 14.4 and 18 volt Milwaukee 2.4 amp hour packs-they are being recalled and you can get a free pack. Look on their website for information. The other cheap alternative on the Milwaukee stuff is to go to Harbor Freight and get a replacement battery for certain Chicago Pneumatic drills as they are a rebadged Milwaukee. Scary to think that HF actually sells SOME good stuff.
