    New RPM Meter Shop Fox Drill Press Modidication.

    New RPM Meter for Shop Fox Drill Press. installed new rpm meter with magnet sensor and on off mini switch under the speed knob.
    from china/ via LA @ $25.00 with wiring diagram. I have not epoxied the magnet on the pulley yet, I will need to rough up the area under the magnet before I epoxy it on.

    Probably Fleabay 222475499225. I'm going to install a 220 vac 3 phase motor on a similar drill press. I'll have just two belt changes and a 120 vac supply vfd, I don't usually need to know how fast it's running but it will be handy sometimes to have a tach.

    Hi obt DIGITEN Tachometers Digital LED RPM Speed Meter+Hall Proximity Switch Sensor NPN ebay sold by s24_shop instructions come with the unit.
    also be aware that the magnets have polarity and must be in line to work properly just move the magnet around or flip upside down....:O) comes from Los Angeless fast ship.

    L98 ferro Thanks for the input ..:O)
