Makita dc1804f charger will not charge new i-mh 1834 18v battery

I think your tryiong to charge NIMH batteries oon a charger designed for Lithium Ion batteries. With all the new style batteries such as NICAD, NIMH and LI-ION, charging becomes difficult. Most chargers pre NIMH and LI-ion, were designed for NICAD's. The best advise, match your batteries with the correct charger

I have a brand new makita hammer drill and the chuck is not stuck. It opens and closes freely but the bit still wont come out? Any ideas what may be going on?

Hi. Just to clarify, it is a rotary hammer drill, not an impact drill? In most cases those machines put out 3 joules of energy on the back of the drill bit. If it was a cheap bit, the hammer action "mushrooms" the end of the bit making it difficult to remove. You could try to force it out using a bench vise, but you could damage the chuck.

My Makita DSS610 18v cordless circular saw stopped working mid cut. I changed the battery to another, fully charged, one but still nothing. Tried again next day, with both batteries, still nothing.

Hello Derek, it seems that your motor or motor brushes have failed please contact the manufacture about replacing the motor brushes.

Breaker keeps tripping on generator when I turn

4KW is marginal for HVAC compressor. Breakers get weak with time. Assuming th gen is running properly and the correct voltage is available. A HVAC unit can take 6 times the start current than it takes to run, so it is possible the inrush is too much

How do i convert a makita charger model DC18RC at

The DC18RC are most likely to charged the BL1830 battery, which is the most popular of 18V Makita power tools. It is a Li-ion battery.And the DC18RC battery charger has two volt 110 Volt and 240 Volt. The 240 Volt DC18RC charger can replace model DC18RA & DC18SD because of its improved performance and full compatibility with Makita's NEW 'Star' labelled batteries that communicate between the tool, battery & charger. And, it is a fast charger.It can charge a Makita BL1830 Battery in approx 22 minutes.But, I do not recommend to convert a makita charger model DC18RC at 110 volt to 240 volts.The reason is as below:1. This will void product warranty ! If you follow this mod, you do it on your own risk ! 2. There are several comments that describedsame model # but with different design and components. Please beware that this mod might not work on your chargeror worst, will damage it. Only perform this mod if you know your way around with electronics !

Compound miter saw model 2124014 sold by Ace Hardware

Not much available for that vintage saw. The switch might be a possibility from a similar saw. Send images to one of the spares companies. Epoxy resin could fix the handle. https://www.google.com/search?q=Compound+miter+saw+model+2124014 ..
