    Default My old drill needs a second life

    Old B&D variable speed reverse function.

    The reverse function switch has had enough so I want to fix it to make it one directional clockwise of course.

    Question is which of the wires do I cut off to make it work?

    There are 2 x white, 3 x black (one looks like earth to the windings housing), a red and a brown.

    Red and brown go to each comutator brush and whites and blacks to windings.

    My guess is each one of black and white get removed. The remainder get connected to the red and brown?

    Thanks

    Have not had a chance yet. But it sits and looks at me every time I go into the workshop.
    And I look back at it....
    It will be trial and error to get the direction right but I am not sure if a black and black must be connected, a white and black or a white and white.
    Logic tells me black and black or white and white.

    Since you are removing the directional switch, why not open it and see which wires are connected for the 'Forward' position?

    Connect those and remove the redundant ones.

    Once you have wasted all your money and time on reviving the old drill, take a walk around your shed/garage and see if you cant find an old wheelbarrow to refurbish with the drill. That will make the whole exercise really worthwhile.

    No money wasted.

    Only time which equals curiosity to learn something.

    Amazing that all this stuff covered during the educational years and years of exposure indirectly standing watching in a white coat.

    Now it lies before me and I am a little bit stumped by 2 extra wires.

    Cheers

    Unfortunately they fell out when I dismantled the switch to see what the problem was.

    I do recall the white ones were at opposite positions to the brown and red. Thus brown and one white one direction and red and white reverse direction.

    This will be my starting point.

    Will look this weekend.

    This drill and I have come a looong way together. We are partners!

    I also have an inquisitive mind. What can you lose if you poke around with a few combinations. Worse case scenario is it can go poof .

    Mitsu put an inline fuse or a very small circuit breaker in the power supply line before you start trying to connect the wires. at least then you will limit the damage if you guess wrong.

    Just don't let the smoke escape from the wires - very difficult to put it back!

    Well I only thought that it was saveable after I stripped it to try to fix the switch.

    Like Marc Marquez said after a recent MotoGP victory:

    "I ride very clever"

    Must try that....

    I also had to learn. I always had spares left after I put stuff back together.
