    Compound slide feed variation

    Nothing new on the concept but with a couple of design changes using materials I had to hand. Not liking the exposed wiring on the ones I have seen I have enclosed it within the handle, the on button is operated by a finger grip instead of the more usual thumb. I also fitted a 1/2 inch drive to accept sockets as I have two different machines to use it on. This is powered by my 18v drill battery power box which has variable speed.
    Parts are
    24v 40;1 ratio unit
    Momentary on button
    32mm waste pipe (gives some air space for the motor and wiring).
    2 acrylic end caps.
    8BA C/S screws.
