Want to ADD soft-start to a tool
I know there are quite a few woodworkers that want to disable the soft-start feature of their routers (so they can use an external speed control). I have the opposite dilemma.
I purchased a portable table saw. I like it quite a bit, but it doesn't have soft-start and the kick is something else when it stars. It kicks so hard it deflects a blade enough to chew into the edge of a sled.
Does anyone know of any variable speed controls that will work with a universal motor that provide a soft-start feature?
I found a video on youtube which pretty much shows what I want to accomplish, but the device was apparently a prototype, I need something I can buy.
I cannot post URL's to Youtube but if you go to youtube and search for "uQmnpqHjCyM" (no quotes) you will find a link to the control.
