    C. Sellick/Wells Tall Case

    I just bought this English tallcase clock at an estate sale. The only info is a handwritten bill. The name on the dial is C. Sellick/Wells. I checked Britten's, Baillie and Loomes, with no luck. Anyone recognize this maker? BarryB

    Switching from footpedal to rheostat for speed control

    Cazboy - Check out a router speed controller at Harbor Freight or possibly even Sears. It's the same as the one pictured. I use one on my Taig lathe. It works fairly well, but the motor can stall at low speeds. BarryB
