DIY ±18VDC to power a dead cordless drill Answered
My last battery died on my cordless drill and i'm trying to transform it to a corded drill.
My plan was to use a microvawe transformer along with a bridge rectifier (KBPC5010 Bridge Rectifier Diode, KBPC Series, Single, 1 kV, 50 A, 1.2 V, Module, 4) to power the drill. 120VAC from the wall to, I wish, 12to18VDC.
The problem with this is the voltage given by the output of the microwave transformer is of only ±3VAC.
