NEW! Faster Search Option
I am looking at a ~2 year assignment in the UK where power is 240V and 50HZ. I have a decent collection of shop and hand power tools and am trying to decide what to do with them. We expect to come back home after this assignment and I will not have to pay for shipping or storage either way. Anyone have ideas on the following:
- Bandsaw, jointer, and DC can be converted to 240V and I assume I can just put a local plug on it. Any issues with lower Hz?
- I was getting ready to take the plunge on a new cabinet saw and a lathe (all 240V). Buy it here, get one there, or hone my hand tool skills for the next few years?
- I assume all hand power tools, Dewalt 735 Planer and Chopsaw (all 120V) should be put in storage. Any thoughts on protecting them? Any good options for actually bringing them over?
