    Thanks for the help. Going to order one for my son in law’s scroll saw as soon as I figure out a box to put it in!

    Hi Mike, I do not know which Excalibur saw you have, but I had a look online and found one with a DC motor. It has a rocker on/off switch. If your saw has this, and you want to incorporate that switch, you can wire it to the on/off terminals on the DC 51 controller. Its an added safety feature but somewhat redundant as there is a on/off rocker switch already on the controller.

    If you want to have a true "power off" switch, you should wire the rocker switch to the power cord upstream from the control box.

    There is a fuse in the controller.

    Another ? Do you have a fuse in-line and if so, where? Previous one had a 3amp SLO-blow fuse.

    Ok. Looks fine. Was worried about the wires in the back. Thought I could find a deeper PVC or metal box to stick it in

    You can do that too, but I have found it easier in the end to make my own, of course I have a scroll saw to cut out the hole for the box

    Like I said, it won't be as pretty. I build wooden boxes and mount them in a convenient location on the machine. Here are someexamples.

    What kind of a box do you use? It is a lot deeper than a regular one.

    Ignore them. Just hook up the ac and motor terminals

    I am not sure if it will make a difference with your saw, but if after you wire it up, you find it is running in reverse, just reverse the motor connections on the controller.
