Glad I found this forum, looks like it will be a good source.
Well, I will start with my current issue. I have a Makita 6213D 12V cordless drill that has served me well. I do a lot of woodworking and remodeling. This drill was just right. Eventually it started to lose power and would only drive a few screws before it would give out. I bought a new battery, but nothing changed. Since I just put $50 bucks into a battery I thought it must be the charger so I got a new one. Still the same thing. Brushes are good. Any ideas of what the problem might be and how to fix it? Hate to pitch it since I dumped a bunch of money into it.
