    By 2 and 3 pin I take it you mean the cord. The 2 pin is double insulated and the 3 is a grounded tool. The answer in that case would be no. There would be nothing to ground the DI to. It is designed and built with extra insulators for that purpose.

Hi there!
I am afraid you can't do that by the changing plug. However, you can do that by using a Step-down Transformer which will bring 220V to 110v that is what your machine is designed to run on. Check the wattage of your drill before getting a Xformer. Usually the stepdown x-former should have a proper socket at the output side. Good luck.

My Mach 1 electric scooter Is a 2 pin European plug so what fuse sicker would I need to get without them burning out 13 amp plug ok or .

It is usual practice to cut off the European plug and fit a British 13 amp plug even though adapters are available. The charger isn't likely to require much current so fitting a 3 amp fuse should be ok. If you discover the plug or the positive pin is becoming warm after some time you could increase the fuse rating to 5 amp, though I doubt it will be necessary.
