For that matter, a well placed wack with a hammer eliminates the need for a chisel.

You see those Italian made professional ovens used in pizza places.
Not many fancy cuts in those . Probably not cost effective in time and tools.
Recon a lot of these one off builders produce a truly amazing product because thier own labor and time is worth nothing to them to gain the finished product.
And they get a lot of enjoyment and satisfaction doing it, cost blow outs over time work has no meaning to the end result.

A constant activity over a life time in the building industry has been explaining to Clients the different criteria between a commercial standard and what a reasonably skilled person can achieve without the constraints of cost or time

Default Re: How to charge a Makita battery that wont charge on the charger due.

Over the last 10 years, I have gone through a bunch of NiCad 12V rechargeable batteries. Somehow never venturing to disassemble one to see what the inside looks like. Yesterday, I took one apart and was amazed to see all the little cells. I can imagine that not every cell is dead, maybe only one in the chain. But all the main connections are using a spot weld. If you could isolate which cell or cells are dead, the batteries could probably be made useful again. The batteries that I am mentioning do not have any internal circuitry like the Makita one that Brickie showed.

I never seem to get to the point of throwing the batteries away --so there are many by the same manufacturer to get spare parts... Any ideas for making a conductive connection without spot welding? All the battery cases are stainless steel...Don't know if soldering is possible? Probably not!

Not always true. There are perfectionists who will search out the proper way to do things and do it right--exactly by the manufacturers recommendations.

Many times the pro will skip some of the proper sequence just to get the job done quickly and possibly save some money.

Then there are others--who if they hire someone to do some work, will nickel and dime you to death with demands for perfection, but slop through the same work and look for praise for their accomplishments if they do it themselves!

People are so unpredictable, never know what to expect!

Finally, there are those who are obsessed with speed and equate quickness with experience. They get the job done quickly and have more time to look at the crappy work for the rest of their lives!

Amen, anyone else want the podium?
