Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corporation ;

A. We wrote about this question a few years back but it is such an important topic, and with the flood of cordless tools on the market, we feel it's well worth revisiting. Recycling worn-out batteries is hassle-free, thanks to the Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corp. (RBRC). Just go to the Web site, www.rbrc.org, click on "Find a DropOff Site Near You," enter your zip code and a list of nearby sites will appear. I tried it and I was amazed; even though

I live in a small town, there were three sites a few blocks from my home. Another way to find a drop-off site is to call (800) 822-8837 (1-800-8-BAT-TERY). These centers will take all your rechargeable batteries, including nickel-cadmium (Ni-Cd), nickel metal hydride (Ni-MH), lithium-ion (Li-ion) and small sealed lead (Pb) batteries weighing up to 2 lbs. (1kg).

In an effort to increase public awareness, most manufacturers affix RBRC's updated recycle seal onto their battery packs. The new seal gives the RBRC toll-free number.

In addition to battery recycling, the retail dropoff sites will soon accept discarded cellphones. Now I know what to do with my old cellphone collection, too.

Best Plastic for Shop-Made Guards

A. Polycarbonate plastic is your best choice for shop-made guards. Polycarbonate is more shatter-resistant than acrylic. In fact, it's the stuff most safety glasses are made from. Because it's softer and more flexible than acrylic plastic, polycarbonate is also easier to cut and drill. We recommend using a bandsaw to cut it. Tablesaw blades generate enough heat to melt the plastic and gum up the blade. Be sure to use a hold-down when drilling, because the plastic has a tendency to climb up the bit.

Q. I want to make a transparent guard for my tablesaw crosscut sled. My hardware store carries acrylic and polycarbonate plastic. Which should I buy?

Acrylic has uses in a shop as well. It's a very stiff plastic better suited for things that hold weight, like a router table insert. /W
