Are your power tools UL listed? Do you care??
There is an interesting thread over at Wood magazines DC forum about electrical inspections, and how an inspector failed one because the owner had mounted a Jet air cleaner from the ceiling and plugged it in. It's not UL listed. I know this subject came up at SMC a year or so ago regarding Mini Max machines not being UL listed. I just wondered how many of our woodworking machines are and are not UL listed. Now keep in mind, I don't think it's a reason to stop using these machines for a minute. Just interested. So far I have researched the American made Leeson motor that powers my Clear Vue cyclone, and Leeson's site states that it is not UL listed. I want to look at my Emerson motor on my contractor saw to see what it says, out of curiosity.
Then there is the other thought, does it matter if the motor is UL listed or not, and what about the controls/switches for the motors. How would you go about finding out on those components that a manufacturer uses? Hmmm...food for thought on a cold Spring evening. Jim.
