I've stated before, when it comes to stuff electrical, I'm practically a zero knowledge guy. But, with the help of an instruction book and two Boy Scouts, I can (usually) successfully change flashlight batteries.
Enneyhow, I have seen posts here, and elsewhere, using electro-lingo and acronymns that leave me in the dust talking when about speed controllers, DC and more. I only learned enough to know that this was something I wasn't going to experiment with.
But, then, today, while perusing catalogs (MLCS in particular) I come across speed controllers that seem to be something even I can deal with.
These items are under $30.00 and promise no loss of torque. They are essentially 'plug and play' items.
Now, the confusion: When y'all talk about variable speed here, it requires special motors and controllers that cost way up into the hundreds of dollars.
I guess the bottom line question is: Wassup?
