In New Jersey, there is apparently only one acetylene filling station, and all the welding shops send the cylinders there to get refilled. So when I need a fill, I get my own new nice-looking oxygen

I have a 4-year-old Craftsman 18-volt "EX" cordless drill. The two batteries it came with have slowly gotten worse and worse, and are now useless. I need to decide what to do. Sears seems to keep ch
