So I have quite different question - as I noticed my parkside tool will not work when only + na - is delivered from RC battery. DO you know what kind of resistor is on the third pin?

Hi Myle, great project. Quick question: if I understand correctly, the Makita device won't be able to access the battery status. Is it dangerous? For example, will the battery stop before complete discharge and damage occurs? Thanks.

Hi Myle... i lost my print this night... almost done... damn..

however... i try to mount.. (see the picture i add) and i'll like to tell u something:

1- i think u should stretch 1 mm, maybe better 2mm, in the front, to fill the gap from adapter to battery (see red circle)
2- u could stretch also on Z axle the bottom of the adapter, always to fill the gap from adapter to battery (see blu circle)

i print this in petg and the support are terrible to remove. :-)

this evening i'll try again to make a print, or should i wait for some modifications?

what do u think?

Hi! im sorry about your issue,

About your comments;

1- I will look well after the gap in future versions, but with or without it would work exactly the same
2- All my prints have no gap, i thing you have some warping or adhesion problem, in the picture the bottom seems to be curved.

Have you try to print again or with another material? i have no issues with ABS and PLA
I could not work on it until i have some time, but i will keep you update when i upload new and upgraded versions

i'm printing.... what about wiring??

I have update the info on the main page, also i have add a battery charger/mount if you want also to have it.

If you have any question ask m e and I will try to solve and add new documentation or info if its needed.

ok..i red.. but i think we need 4 male fastons, not only 2 like u describe... and 3 female fastons.
for the female faston location, i think u could make a recess of about 7.30x1 mm, deepth 3-4 mm to fit the open female faston part...

making some photos, ill send u later...

There is no need to add the 4 male faston conectors, with only the 2 on the sides would be Ok unless you want to use those 2 to something else.

Perfect, you coul upload the photos and we improve the design!

great.. i have almost all the X20V Parkside tools and 3 Makita 18V... this is a great great .stl


Great! i Guess you could use and you like it!

Can i ask about the mounting of the adapter to the Makita drill is there other files with plastic grip with spring for connecting with hole of the machine( i mean original white grip of the battery that is using for conection of the body with the battery). Also can you upload a schematics of the connections?
