Ordered the parts, with the exception of the toggle switch (it is back ordered till June).Sorry I didn't get back to you! I must have missed your post!
I haven't done the conversion yet! Just getting the information needed. I've been looking around for a reconditioned or used 5625 that I can do the conversion on, I also found out that the complete controller # 23-35-0175 is now available through Milwaukee.
Here's part of an E-Mail I got back from Milwaukee Tools;
The 23-35-0175 Control Box and individual service replacement parts are now available for purchase through your local Milwaukee Dealer or by calling our 1- 800- Sawdust line ( 1-800-729-3878) for additional information. mailto:[email protected]
Hope this helps
23-35-0175 Control Box
I wasn't able to find that part number online, most places, connected with a router. Doesn't mean it isn't but comes up as a controller for another tool. (no point in risking it since mainly the control housing is the only thing missing and that can be made easily). My calculations show $121.00 before shipping, so this is a relatively inexpensive project.
I really am thankful to you all for your help. I saw this project two years ago, and couldn't justify modifying a new/warrantied router at that time. Since picking up one (working) inexpensively, I have NO problem doing it.
