I have a single speed drill press which I would like to operate
using a variable-speed foot pedal (rheostat). Currently it has just
an on-off switch and one electrical wire that plugs into a wall
Do you know how I would best make this conversion? I’m assuming it
is possible. Do I call an electrician?
Gesswein and MicroMark both sell foot pedal rheostats and I would
expect other companies do as well. Any advice on what I’d need in
the way of the rheostat?
