New addition to my cordless stuff. Used, came with a 5 ah battery. I'll have to buy the handle and depth gauge. I couldn't pass it up for $70.00.

Monday I was replacing some 4" & 5" cast iron in a school tunnel. My already fun job was made even more so when my bandsaw just stopped. I was cutting some 2" galv and it pinched the blade real good. Turns out it killed the speed controller & protection board.


So I got to thinking, it's a brushed motor and the controller only limits the current when you turn the speed knob down, otherwise it should be the full 18/20v. I took some probe leads and hooked the battery directly to the brushes and it ran fine. I took out the speed controller, hooked the battery up so the switch controls the power, put a 1000ohm resistor on the led line and it works mint now!! It's actually seems a bit faster than before, I guess even on the highest setting there was some current limiting.


My only worry now is that the switch might fail. It's rated for 20amps and it's easy to change so I'm not too worried. There's some extra space in the handle so if it does burn out I may get a beefier switch.
