    Schumacher, nice chargers. (Many people do not realize it, but Don Schumacher, the top fuel and funny car legend, is the man behind the brand.)

    Was this unit a rescue in need of repair or was it just a matter of eliminating sources of irritation (low reach handle and smooth surface only wheels?)

    Since I am speaking my mind today, I'll just come out and say I'd have positioned the female receptcle with a downward orientation. Other than that, atta boy ...

    Edit: didn't you write some time back about finding this in the local tip?

        The charger was new but cursed those things for years,female plug just a blank for holding cord.The wheel system I have mentioned in previous posts are the ones in pic.

          It looks real nice.

          Did you use some sort of insulator for the lugs that you use to store the clamps? I'm always worried about shorting mine out.

          At the end of the project, there is a profound difference between spare parts and extra parts.

            I was sure you would show a picture of the other half of the bicycle handle bar mounted to the charger. Even so I give you a thumbs up on the job.

              I used nylatron as seen in 2nd pic,I machined them down so clamps are in relaxed position so springs stay fresh.

                  Good job, this is the way it should have come from the store.

                  Why is it that a lot of tools that are meant to be portable and used in a somewhat industrial setting come with tiny wheels, handles at a hieght meant for small children, and 3 foot long cords? It's almost like they don't expect or want this stuff from being used.

                    Actually the handle came from a golf bag cart and the wheels from some garden cart that a scored at the dump for free.

                      I like it also . Like someone said that is the way it should have come from the store,but then we would not have gotten the chance to improve on the way it was.

                        the modification I make to all of my battery chargers is to buy a 50 foot extension cord, chop off the female part, and hard wire the long cord to the charger. buying an extension cord is cheaper than buying the same length of wire, the male plug is a bonus.
