Convert your big tools to DC for cheap. Here’s the part list.


I am a big fan of converting my big vintage tools over to DC motors from conventional AC. They are nice and full of torque and they are stinkin’ cheap. You can also do variable speed. It’s a win, win.

► Cheap way.
Buy this-
It’s all the parts and the motor in one cardboard box from a nice gentleman on ebay I’ve bought from before.

► The way I did it.
I bought this motor and then this controller. It’s slightly more expensive but it’s super easy to wire up.

► Questions or comments?
Do you use any DC motors? Tell me how you do it.


Just a regular guy who prefers to roll up his sleeves and do things himself.
