Franken-Saw (a.k.a. how to use a DeWalt battery with a Bosch reciprocating saw)


Step 3: Modify terminal connectors

The female disconnect terminal connectors must be modified to fit the saw and the battery. The terminals for the saw need to be flattened, and the terminals for the battery must be opened up.

I flattened the 2 terminals for the saw using a bench vise. Just put the connector in the vise and tighten until it's flattened.

The other 2 terminals were opened up using a small flat-blade screwdriver.They must be opened up just enough for a snug fit on the DeWalt battery terminal. If you open it up too much, use your pliers to adjust it to the right size.
