Thank you for the info on the switch. My PM speed control switch is a PITA in that it moves too easily and presents a constant unwanted speed change, if I am not super careful. To avoid the problem in a safer direction I reversed The Leads inside the housing so that the speed tends to go slower if accidentally rubbed. While this works for me I would not recommend it to everyone. I need to find a speed control sw. that has some significance. Yes, I have heard other PM owners complain and yes, putting a rubber band around the shaft helps but a good sw. should not need a series of "fixes". Any leads on a good one?? Philip
