First Post and Purchase
« on: April 03, 2021, 06:06 PM »
Bought this two weeks ago...

CDD 12 FX made in April of 2004

Looks brand new and consisted of drill; 2 12v 2,0 AH batteries, MC15 Charger, two Chucks and Systainer case.



Both batteries are taking full charge (over 14 v). Have run both down by drilling 3/8" x 1.25" holes until unable to drill. 38 Holes by one battery and 46 holes by the other. Both measured approximately 10 volts at this point.

Bought it at a local thrift store for $12.00....

Sometimes you're just plain lucky.

Great find.  My first tool was from a garage sale.  Didn't know much about festool at the time but the guy had a TS75 for sale.  At the time I thought it was an ok price (now I know it was beyond cheap).  As I was leaving he asked if I'd be interested in a table from festool as well.  Proceeded to show me an mft 1080.  After I got home and researched the price I nearly spit out my drink at the time.

Thank you all!

Batteries are in great shape.

I have been traveling for a couple of weeks.

Checked the battery charges last night: 13.2 v on one and 13.3 volts on the other.

Pretty much where they were after the last charge...
