So my MT2400 was crying for new D batteries AGAIN.

And I had a broken, taped together Snap-On neck lamp hanging around.

So I repeatedly smashed them together until the two tools were integrated, resulting in an abomination that is now rechargeable (and two D cells lighter)



Still in proof of concept stage so to speak.

-Seems to me that I could live my life, a lot better than I think I am.
I guess that's why call me The Working Man.-

It's a magnet on my dry erase board. Keen eye ;)
For a magnet, it's a quality piece of merch!

It will probably stay like this for the foreseeable future.
Gets about 6 hours of on-time.
Not great but more than adequate considering I can charge it between uses if needed or even use it plugged in.

Awesome! I love it! B)

I gave it a fancy kick stand too with some 3/16 brake line.
