Hi Roger,
Nice work.Any info on the headstock or other components be great.Would like to do similar someday. What to use for headstock and foot pedal has me stumped. When I made my variable speed drier some of your posts helped immensely.
Scott.

Scott,
A very good headstock and chuck is the headstock and chuck made by Taig.

These are the same items used on some of the excellent commercial power wrappers on the market.

The foot pedal that I use is from a WAH dunlop guitar amp pedal. The reason that I use this pedal is that it allows me to use a standard high quality potentiometer with a gear drive to allow for the full 270 degree potentiometer rotation necessary for 100% control of the DC motor speed controller.
