I was given a circular saw…fairly old model. As I already have a very good saw I thought I would change this one into a disk sander. The conversion was fairly simple, building a mounting and changing the saw blade into a “backplate” for a circular wooden bed on which to stick the sandpaper. In short everything works.
However…....when I turned it on it goes fast… so fast it’s downright frightening….it really is fast.
So how can I reduce the speed?...... reduce the voltage?
It’s plugged in to the mains…
Any ideas; comments, advice would be most welcome…
