if you know a good machine place and do back handers thats where you want tobe,

Here is a new tool I added to my Bat Vehicle building tool box.
DEWALT ATOMIC 20V MAX Reciprocating Saw, One-Handed, Cordless, Tool Only (DCS369B)
The cordless reciprocating saw is compact at only 12.5-inch front to back
List Price: $149.00 Details
Price: $102.90
Item Weight 3.84 Pounds
Voltage 20 Volts
About this item
37% Lighter than the DCS367 Reciprocating Saw (tool only)
Brushless motor for increased performance
LED to help illuminate dark work spaces
Tool-free blade release allows for quick and easy blade changes
Variable-speed trigger provides user with improved speed control
Pivoting shoe provides more points of contact than a fixed shoe

Placed a copy of this posting here for anyone who might be planning and/or actually building a Bat Vehicle.
Received an email today asking, "What is the most important first skill I need to master before I start a batmobile build?

After thinking about this question I have concluded that the most important skill in planning and actually building a Bat Vehicle is the ability to understand and accurately measure with the relevant measuring tools.

Here is a very well written article that covers the basics.

Interesting question. I think the most important thing is "drive". Which is an innate urge to attain a goal or satisfy a need.

urge · appetite · desire · need · impulse · instinct

hey sly,
After you had the drive and desire to build your DOJ batmobile what progression of planning, steps, and skills moved your build forward? What direction moved you beyond your desire to build your DOJ?

I believe this fellow has the desire, as many of those do that inquire about building a bat vehicle. Is it a burning passion or passing curiosity it is hard to tell without knowing the intensity of the desire. I believe he and others are seeking direction in how to move forward beyond desire. vertigo

Mostly it was ignorance and being arrogant enough to think I could overcome any obstacle. That and being able to partner with someone that actually DID know what they were doing. And lots of great advice from another friend that has lots of knowledge and insight that I don't have.

So basically, teamwork.

Placed a copy of this research posting from the University of Michigan for anyone planning to and/or actually building a bat vehicle.

Excellent overview on getting the most useful life from lithium batteries.

"Tips for extending the lifetime of lithium-ion batteries"
February 17, 2020

ANN ARBOR—Lithium-ion batteries are everywhere these days, used in everything from cellphones and laptops to cordless power tools and electric vehicles.

And though they are the most widely applied technology for mobile energy storage, there’s lots of confusion among users about the best ways to prolong the life of lithium-ion batteries.

To help clarify, University of Michigan researchers plowed through scores of academic papers and manufacturers’ user manuals, as well as information on customer-support websites, to develop a list of nine best practices for lithium-ion battery lifetime extension.

“By minimizing exposure to the conditions that accelerate degradation, batteries can last longer. And this has a positive environmental impact, as battery production is a source of greenhouse gas emissions and many other pollutants,” said study senior author Greg Keoleian, director of the U-M Center for Sustainable Systems at the School for Environment and Sustainability.

“Additionally, there are significant financial incentives for users to avoid adverse conditions, as the cost of lithium-ion batteries can range from 5% to over 50% of a product’s cost.”

The U-M team’s findings were published Feb. 15 in the Journal of Energy Storage.

Many of the recommended practices are related to the three main variables that impact battery health: temperature, state of charge and current.

Tips for extending lithium-ion battery lifetime in power tools.

Avoid temperature extremes, both high and low, when using or storing lithium-ion batteries. Elevated temperatures can accelerate degradation of almost every battery component and can lead to significant safety risks, including fire or explosion.

Minimize the amount of time the battery spends at either 100% or 0% charge. Both extremely high and low “states of charge” stress batteries. Consider using a partial charge that restores the battery to 80% SoC, instead of 100%. If that’s not possible, then unplug the device as soon as it reaches 100%.

Using “fast chargers” is convenient but will degrade a lithium-ion battery more quickly than standard charging. Discharging a battery too quickly also leads to battery degradation, through many of the same mechanisms.

Some manufacturers of cordless power tools advise users not to store batteries in the charger, while others caution against running down the battery completely. A few recommend a minimum ambient temperature of 32 F when charging the battery, and a maximum of 104 degrees.

Avoid use or storage of lithium-ion batteries in high-moisture environments, and avoid mechanical damage such as puncturing.

There are two main forms of battery degradation: capacity fade and power fade. Capacity fade is a decrease in the amount of energy a battery can store, and power fade is a decrease in the amount of power it provides."
