That’s great! At least that battery will hold a charge for a long time. Wonder if Home Depot would be interested?

You could probably get a good deal of money for that if it had a charger with it!

Nice job. I need one!!

Can’t imagine how many times per minute I could pound my thumb with that. Very cool project.

are you using “18v Lithium Ion Battery?”....if you run out of it, please let me know. I have 2 36V dead battery. Not sure if it may burn your mallet. LOL
Very nice mallet anyway!

Nice one Kiefer.
I could use one of those to drive the wedges in my V8 bench.

You are on to something but it really does need a wooden charger to sit in :).

Ahhhhhhhh, is that Nicad or Li Ion????? Is it variable speed? How about reverse?

Nice one, Kiefer. We needed that after all the political stuff we has to listen to for the past 4 years!!

Well guy’s it is only a prototype !
Still have to do some work on the charging system ,can’t get them padauk connectors to work .
The battery is compressed ??? and will remain secret for now .
I have made a variable speed control and a special setting for Paul in the works , would not want to wreck his wagon vise .
Jeff needs a thumb speed setting so he can move his thumb quick enough and Jim needs a reverse to deal with all that political stuff and I thought he just did wood working .
Yes the 36 volt idea is a possible ,but are old technology and would make good wall ornaments .
I wonder what fun Pete has in mind but if there was money to be made we all could have some fun .
Anyone know some SUCKERS to buy this ?

PT Barnum said there is one born every minute!! Just wait a minute for one to come along!!!!!!!!!!!

I had a show today and showed many people that LWOB ( backward bowl) I made and I had one person believing that I turned it green and the bent it inside out. Maybe they’ll come along looking for a mallet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I’m not going to suggest that you market this in Canada’s most easterly province. That would be cruel . . . (Not sure if the non-Canadians out there will get this one)

Cant imagine the power chisel that goes with it…
