Please help me find

I have searched and searched. But cannot find a battery conversion from a Makita battery to DeWalt NiCad 18v tool. I can find newer 20 volt DeWalt to Makita. But not Makita battery to power an early NiCad 18v tool. I have been buying the aftermarket Chinese Coronavirus cheap batteries to replace the old NiCad DeWalt batteries but I don't want two different chargers and batteries on the job. All my equipment is Makita, just have one DeWalt Saw and a DeWalt job sight radio which uses the old NiCad batteries. If I can convert them to Makita battery packs it would be sweet. Any help from you all would be greatly appreciated.

Wasnít ever happy with Milwaukee cordless. I used (and stil do) use Milwaukee corded tools. I have a heavy Milwaukee jobsite radio whose only drawback was the knob falls off. But Mikita is still the king, and the Makita company always takes care of any issues Iíve had. But telling them Iím attempting to install their batteries on another brand is verboten. So Iím trying to find a converter to do the job I need.

I do agree Milwaukee corded are better than the cordless. I still have a 1/2 corded drill I received when my uncle passed. Itís from the 1980ís. Ill definitely look for you, canít say Iíve heard of converting one battery to another.

Yes, I bought a Makita to Ryobi converter.
But I only have two Ryobus flashlights and one old blue Ryobus Sawzall. Which gets hotter than Satanís living room when its in use.
