Not sure about the actual voltage, but the primary power board shows 94 V @ 2A. As this appears to be a variable speed drive, the voltage amplitude should vary depending on the speed potentiometer setting. The most likely culprit is the speed potentiometer. Poor design causes vibrations on the printed circuit board. This induces metal fatigue in the potentiometer terminations at the board. Eventually one or more terminals snap off. You could try removing the pot and connecting the wiper termination connection directly to the relative end for full speed? This is assuming you want it to run at full speed? Failing that you could try variable resistance settings and then replace the pot with a fixed resistance for the required final speed?

What do you mean by LA in the chainsaw?

Locate the adjustment screws near the carburetor labeled with an "H," an "L," and an "LA." The "H" screw adjusts the high speed fuel-air mixture; the "L" screw adjusts the low speed fuel-air mixture; and the "LA" screw adjusts the idle speed.

What is meant by a soft start

Soft start means that your grinder will start at a slower speed, then rev up to the normal speed, so the grinder won't "dig" into your work.

Hope that helps.

Sharpening high speed engraving bits

The cost of man hours,electricity,etc may far outweigh the cost of a new tool. The problem is keeping the point of the tool on the exact centerline of the shank.

Limitation for use of abrasive grinding wheel

All abrasives are marked with a maximum speed rating. Always check the rated speed of the tool you are mountin the abrasive on and be sure the rated speed on the wheel is equal to or higher than the rated speed of the tool. Never remove a guard to mount a larger wheel on a grinder than it is rated, even if the speed rating is ok!
