Ya!,--kinda think it is a lost cause! Thats what I hate about battery stuff,---I avoid it at all cost, but this was given to me so long ago that its obsolete now! Just wish I could figure a way to rig up a transformer to make it run on 110-v CORD power! I love the old drill!
Thanks for your help and suggestions!

14.4 volts? Maybe you can add a power cord with alligator clips on the other end. You can run it anywhere you can get a 12-volt vehicle.

Jim,--I kinda wondered about that! --12-v on 14.4 is close and I realy dont have anything to lose if it dont work! My jump starter pack is 12-v. also I can always get a truck close to where I need a drill back in the boonies. That is where I mostly used it. That would save having to tote one of the generators around all the time to use the 110-v drills.

With the engine running and a charged battery, the charging system will produce around 14 volts.

Agree with the guys. Get a new one. There’s no comparison. They’re lighter, stronger and the batteries last. I’d look for a complete kit. More value that way.

Especially this time of year when all the Christmas sales are going on. If you’re going to do it, act before the end of next week. After that, prices go up and selection could be limited.

I use battery tools too, but don’t like their short-lived nature.

Well,---I just found another Craftsman drill!---19 volt jobber, also ni-cad power!---also no charger and a dead battery pack! lol! ---- UNREAL! --- anyway, after some testing,--- the 14.4 runs from the 2 battery setup in one of the trucks and with the 100 amp alternator running, it has power! --- Now to make up a cord and attach it solid to the drill.
Not in the market for the $500. new sets!
