Ok, I admit it. I got seduced by the Vixen De Walt. That little Li-On 12v captured my heart so bad that I re-equipped my shop with three of them.

I have 5 Panasonic 12v drills EY6404, all operating, 6 batteries, all good, and three chargers now surplus.

I want to offer them first to LJs

Would you try to sell the whole, or divide it up into packages, and if so, how?

Kindly,

Lee

I have been loyal to the name for many years, Jim. I like everything about them. I’ve had batteries rebuilt with grand success. I have replaced a few gearboxes and switches a decade ago when we were doing production work but for general day to day use they have been outstanding.

They seem to be more refined than many other lines I’ve looked at. “fit and finish” is the phrase. I’m a little sad to see them go!

Kindly,

Lee

I’m still puzzling over whether to package them or itemize.

I’ll try itemize here:

charger: $20 (3 available)

2 EY6405 (these are the newest), including battery, $60 each.

2 older EY6406 (oddly, the older ones have a larger model number), including battery, $50 each

1 oldest. It runs down in rpm when you release the trigger, instead of braking as the others do. w/ 2 batteries, $40.

I wouldn’t trust these in a small Priority box, so think of shipping as $15.

If you want the whole enchilada, which makes my life simpler, I’ll pay the freight.

Payment by PayPal preferred.

Kindly,

Lee

With three chargers, I bust ‘em up and sell them in three lots.
Good buys on all.

$15 shipping
$95 total is this correct Lee

No takers so far. Are these tools doomed to end up on the ‘bay?

I agree to split them into three lots. Only a true freak like us wants to buy a half dozen drills at one time;) I understand what happened to you. I picked up that stupid little DeWalt and almost bought one on the spot. I’ve been in trouble before for using this word here, but I thought they were “cute”. I’ve got 4 Li+ Bosch that are brand new (got robbed; insurance), so I can’t buy your Panasonics. My Bosch replaced Makita and I’ve got to say, I think I liked the Makita better. It’s funny how everyone’s different when it comes to cordless drills. Good luck!

My switch went bad on my Makita 18v lithium ion drill, purchased new, and now I’m not sure of Makita’s
quality anymore.
I took it apart and some stupid plastic part was broken, which would be understandable if I abused the drill,
but I don’t.
Strange.
I’m glad Panasonic has served you well Lee. I’ve only heard they were great drills but no one I know has them.
Oh well.

I’m a big Panasonic fan. Had both the 15.6V and 12V variety. And I thought they were far superior to the Dewalts of the day, still do. Just my 2 cents worth.

I would also sell them as “kits” ...drill , battery, charger…...if three people buy your chargers , you will be stuck with drills and batteries , but nothing to offer the interested people to recharge them with. JMO : )
