Jessem Router Control and Milwaukee 5625-20
« on: April 29, 2018, 08:29 AM »
Another thread mentioned that the Jessem spindle motor is a Milwaukee 5625-20. Is there a way to mod my Milwaukee 5625-20 to use the Jessem remote speed dial?

Even if there was Im guessing Jessem wouldnt sell the controller by itself.


But if you wanted to retrofit your own, check out Super-PID: LINK

Many years ago I modified my 5625-20 with an external pot for speed control. I needed to remove some potting material and solder some wires. Wasn't easy but it's worked flawlessly for many years. At the time a replacement board was around $30 so I took the chance modifying it. I'm pretty sure there is a P/N for a board that is already modified. PM me if interested I'll see if I archived the info.
