just bought a postal scale(they like these things) and it works off of D size batteries.. my problem is i don't have any D cell rechargables.. everything else i have works on C cells. so??
get two pieces of 1'' PVC 4'' long
also a piece of 1 1/4'' 4'' long
2-- 1/2'' nuts and bolts
cut the 1'' length down the center

put the nut and bolt together and cut off the long end of the bolt as short as you can get it. i used a dremel tool for both cuts.

insert your batteries into the 1'' pipe along with the nut/bolt set up

slide the whole thing into the 1 1/4'' pipe and you have a size converter
