this is posted separatly so it doesnt get lost in the topic about numbers you might buy

ive fitted the pig tails to most of my tools

however i have reverted to the standard lead on my EHL65 planer because the "plug it" snagged too often when i was planing doors



because im not an electrician

it might be an idea to check the current(?) capacity of the plug it leads when used on 110v tools

it might also be an idea to check your local electrical regulations (and insurance company small print) to check on any testing requirements after the conversion
