I had that, today.
Lifted my electric hand planer at an awkward angle, blade snagged the cable and wrapped it round the cutter block.
Now I’m considering replacing the cable with a Festool Plug-It conversion kit – it would actually cost less than a genuine Makita cord set with moulded plug.
It just occurred to me though, that the fuse in the planer is 5 amps, and a Plug-It lead would have a 13amp fuse. (I don’t want to have to buy a separate plug-it lead and stick a 5 amp fuse in it just for the planer).
Is it worth taking a chance on? What do you all think? Does the same plug-it lead from the Festool Plunge saw fit onto the Festool baby sander with no issues?
As usual, any thoughts and advice would be appreciated.
