In woodworking things must balance.
Last week I got a delta drill press off the local freecycle
list. Needs a new spring to raise the quill, but otherwise
seems fine. Certainly worth the gas to pick it up.
Last night I was testing out the new panel-raising bit
so I might finally complete my armoire after ~4yrs.
Everything was going great- nice smooth test cuts in
my plywood scrap, taking small bites. Then I raised it
one last time to get the top edge, turned the router
back on, and it bound up on the fence. It seems I hadn't
raised the bit high enough when shaping the notch in the fence.
Quick, turn it off. NO, you moron, that's the lock lever...
ok, now it's off after it already stopped turning. Hmm..
did it blow the breaker or the router? Turn it back on..
all the magic smoke is exiting my Hitachi M12V.
So, anyone know if the controller boards are replaceable
in a Hitachi M12V? My quick dig through my manual pile
didn't find the right one last night. Then I just left the
shop in disgust/before I broke anything else.
