    Thanks Charlie, I figured you would like the write up being a G110V2 guy!! It was fun doing it. Not so often do I have the time to sit here at home and work.

    Very informative! Also, nice trick with the wirenuts. Before I saw that you sealed them I was thinking "Oh no, he's not going to leave them like that." However, I would recommend those who are capable of soldering do that instead and heat-shrink it.

    Then again, if they are that comfortable with soldering they have probably done this already!

    Only problem with that is I have seen solder joints break under stress/vibration, so over time it could become a problem.

    Nothing wrong with a little clear epoxy.

    very nice work! glad to see there easy to take apart!, one tip for the not so mechanically or electrically inclined is when your putting wires into anything that is held down by a screw/screw+plate bend the wire into a U shape and place the wire so when you tighten the screw clockwise it will draw the wire in with the screw and wrap around the screw threads so there's no possibility of those coming off if you tug on power cord or you pull it out of socket by mistake...but great work dave! will help with the hassle of having to send it back and wait. good luck to the guys who will do this repair. one question dave, as my brain is fogged right now isn't it the longer the cord you want to use you need thicker gauge wire? say if for some odd reason someone wants 150ft of cord for a polisher...but my guess is even at 16AWG 150foot would be fine for 5 amps...im wondering why polishers aren't grounded. seems like it would be beneficial but i'm just thinking out loud! i have no clue of electrical engineering, i can solder circuit boards so i guess i have that going for me! guess if my detailing biz fails i can always resort to extracting gold from circuit boards! LOL just kidding about that of course!

    Yes that is correct. the longer the cord length the heavier guage you should use. My cords are 14 guage because I run a minimum of 150 feet to get down to my driveway when I detail cars here at the house. I plug into a simple 15 amp circuit in the living room and can run any of my tools with amperage to spare. I once figured out the formulation for running a 10 amp load through 200 feet of 14 guage cord on that 15 amp circuit that included the length of the house circuit to the panel box. My boss figured it out using his little black engineers pocket facts book and there was power to spare so I went with it and haven't had any issues yet.

    The quick connect crimps style (where you insert the wires into a link and then crimp(compress on wire) )can work as well in lieu of twist nuts or soldering for splicing two wires together.
