    Hi Aussie, nice conversion,very professional. I have converted my 10 inch lathe to treadmill and am in the process of converting a metal bandsaw.I have tried using a cheap scr and bridge rectifier but could not get a clean signal-brushes arced. I have used a control from KB but very expensive. Couldn’t catch your link to the control you used can you enlighten me?
    Thanks
