    Default Black & Decker / Fire Storm DC Drill

    In reading the recent thread about cordless drill motors, a couple of folks mentioned they had dead batteries for their drills.

    I have a different problem. The transformer died. I bought a replacement transformer yesterday and it released the 'secret smoke'. Damn stinky too.

    The transformer was the same voltage. So much for the surplus electronic store.

    I need one that someone no longer needs.

    Thanks for reading.

    If you go to the B & D web site you will find that there was a recall on some of the Firestorm products because of faults in the batter/charger system, no use to us now though.

    Depending on the voltage and mounting type they may intefchangable with Dewalts. The batteries for my 14.4 Dewalt are pretty much dead and the step-sons 14.4 B&Ds fit

    Remember pessimists are at heart opptomists. They know things can and will get worse.
