    Anyone have any luck with aftermarket batteries to replace the 9.6v Makita NiCD stick batteries? I have perfectly good tools I hate to have to replace. Seems like I cannot find batteries anywhere except on Amazon anymore.

    Recent Simple projects

    Just to keep me in practice - school has kept me too busy to do much of anything else, so I needed to get a few simple projects done just to keep my confidence level from going down the toilet. Most of these were patterns from SSW&C. I purchased the Comedy/Tragedy clock pattern from someone...
