    It could help to know this limit. If things hang up and you keep pulling, the PEX will...

    Check voltage between both hot lugs at the breaker; L1<>L2. Should read 240V. If CB is not inserted properly or is damaged, you may not be energizing one of the wires. Or, a long shot, but both...

    Jeff,
    Jim's method/graphic assumes a 120VAC coil in the DC's mag starter. I don't know his DC, or the specs on the Grizzly you are contemplating, but if you can find out this detail, it helps make...

    Mark,
    I used flexible LED strip lights from SuperBrightLED to create up-/down-lights in some display shelving recently. I am not sure exactly how this might integrate to your 'branch' lamp, but...

    Bert you are likely correct.

    However, I like to build things, but not so much RE-build my tools. I mentioned in OP that the original mechanical starter (20A) has burned up once. I opened it and...

    In case it’s not apparent, if a saw already has a magnetic starter, it should be a simple matter to install a $15-20 L/S. Once mechanical installation is set, just wire the switch...
