I don't spell well

Default Cheap tool almost sets fire ... lol ... no really

Bought one of these guys because I thought it'd come in handy:




After a solid 45 sec of use, I thought I smelled something... no problem I was grinding stuff so no big deal. After a minute, I started hear a bacon cracking sound. So I naturally turned off the tool, but the sound persisted. I unplugged the pedal and held it up and heard the insides cracking. So I threw it out into the snow.

Yeah cool story bro. But seriously, if I plugged that thing in and walked away, there would have been problems.

yeah, they arent rated for much. if you need another let me know how many amps the drill is and i can try and find something. my parents own a sewing machine sales/repair business and these are used on sewing machines and are quite cheap. i do know they last a long time running a dremel.
