Don’t panic. It wasn’t an accident. I have the cord tied to my vac hose, which is tied to the motor wires. I want to mess around with other tools, like the pen, so I cut the cord and added a male end here, and a female end on the existing cord. I didn’t realize it was just two conductors, so I shouldn’t have bought a 3 conductor cable. But it’s working now, and I can remove the router in 10 seconds.September 24, 2017 at 2:23 pm #44634
Was thinking of replacing my dewalt cord with silicon wire. Have a bunch of 18 awg silicon from another project.September 25, 2017 at 7:55 am #44690
I wanted to do the same thing a few times. I hand sanded some corner round overs last week because I didn’t want to take off all my wire velcro to use the 611.September 25, 2017 at 8:29 am #44695
Yeah, that’s the other half of it. I want to make something like this little router table, but I’ll probably just make it a board, with a hole, and clamp it to my bench:October 14, 2017 at 10:29 am #45954
I’m going to try these power connectors. They are available at Mouser.October 14, 2017 at 3:28 pm #45971
Are they any cheaper. I priced those out and it was going to be over a hundred for the few power tools in my shop. They do seem nice though.October 14, 2017 at 4:22 pm #45974

Yeah, $12 for just one side! Disc sander, belt sander, jigsaw, circular saw, 2 routers… $72 for the tools I have, and that doesn’t include the cable sides, and it doesn’t include new tools, like a sawzall or one of those vibrating saws. I forgot my Dremel. My Dremel barely costs $12. I’m pretty sure I bought these ones at HD for $1.99, but they are on Amazon for $3.50:
/grouchy old man rant… I do understand the appeal, I’m just internally conflicted. 🙁October 14, 2017 at 8:28 pm #45983
Sorry that I touched a nerve, they are expensive if you want convert all your tools. I’m planning on just putting them on the router to start. Mouser has them for $8.70 not sure about shipping though.October 14, 2017 at 11:49 pm #45989
No apologies needed. I had a smile on my face during the whole rant. 🙂October 14, 2017 at 11:50 pm #45990
I really just want them to be cheaper. So bad, because they do seem really nice.October 15, 2017 at 12:01 am #45992
may be this
and you don t need so many connector the same cord can be use for all tools

Yeah. Wow. AliExpress FTW.
Is this a case of mouser/Amazon middleman profit or a Chinese counterfeit not paying for the design? Ungh, why do I have such moral dilemmas when shopping?
Thanks for pointing those out. I might buy them and then feel guilty and but some of the expensive ones.October 15, 2017 at 1:04 am #46005
I planing do that also but I have so many tools. that I just need to go for Ali:DOctober 15, 2017 at 5:54 am #46013
The Neutrik connectors are used commercially in sound and lighting. I’m guessing the Ali express ones are knock offs, no UL to be found I’m sure.
it’s funny some people are drawn to gold and diamonds but we covet power connectors. Could be worse!October 15, 2017 at 5:37 pm #46053
Took me a bit to get Aliexpress to switch back from the French version after that. 🙂October 16, 2017 at 4:15 am #46069
sorry for the french version i didn t think about that when i post the link
thanks every body for all the work in this websiteOctober 16, 2017 at 5:16 am #46071
If you only need two connectors, you could also look at Bosch connectors like used in cars.October 16, 2017 at 5:43 pm #46144

I turns out to be quite easy to do, there’s a link at the top of the page (Go to Global Site (English)) to get you back to normal. It just took me a while to notice it, even though it was about the only portion of the page in English. 😉
