    How-to add an extra O/D switch on the 42RLE

    This is a little install guide on a switch I put in several years ago. It works well so I thought I’d share the process and some thoughts on it. I have a hand throttle below the switch visible in the pictures, it doesn’t get in the way Why switch at all? The 42RLE drives much better with the...

    Calling all electricians

    I have an electrical question, for anyone who knows more about electrical than I do. I am a carpenter, and would like to change the factory cord on my Skilsaw to a 50 foot cord, because I like the idea of always having a decently long cord on my circular saw versus having to always hook up an...

    I was looking at re-installing either stock fogs or some 9" LED bars on my front bumper and, to cover all of my bases, decided to make sure the factory wiring was still in place and serviceable.
