My apologies Deema. I should have had the cable distance measured out well before now. In all honesty, I should have realised you needed the length size when you asked how I was needing to connect the machine to the transwave and did not expect you would be actually wiring it up ready to use. When I bought the Wadkin, it arrived without a cable or plug, I paid my sparky friend to wire it all up once the machine was in place, he supplied the parts after seeing it in place. 4 metres may well have been enough length to get me started, I added a metre because it may be in future that I will pull the machine away from the wall to maximise flexibility of use when cutting. You have obviously bought quite a bit now for the saw and for reasons that will benefit me greatly and really appreciate it. Please do let me know if I can help with the funds at all, I did expect to have to pay my sparky to wire it up after arrival so happy to help with the cost of at least that.Not a hugely productive day today. The new owner asked for a mains cable 5m long…….and as is typical we had just 4m left……not a big deal, we had anticipated supplying a cable of circa 3m, so hadn’t ordered a new real. Rather than relying on the unreliable post we popped to the local electrical distributor to pick up some additional cable. We selected a particular type of cable for this saw, Sideways will explain the rational as he is in charge of the rewiring of the machine. We always replace all the cables in a machine, with age they become brittle and for us it’s a false economy for the new owner if it isn’t rewired throughout.
The S45 is looking great. You guys are making it look like new. If I ever meet another with an S45, I will be pointing them to this thread, it’s like Haynes manual step through guide with a personal touch and better pictures!
