Yes I know that the power company bills by watts and not amps, I just was trying not to explain the entire process of how we determine if we're actually saving money or not when converting to 220/240 volt operation so I took a little short cut. I think as the subject has ran along everyone understands that in the end you will not save much money but your power tool will run better, so with that I will leave the rest alone. However I am a little surprised that no one has questioned how the motor can be dual voltage, and yet the RPM' don't change, and the current draw stays the same. I will not even attempt to explain how this works, cause I know I will get it wrong.
It\'s not the quantity or quality of your tools that matters....<br />It\'s all in the firewood that\'s left over.....
