Axminster AMT Multi-Tool Kit. Can it be controlled by a foot switch?


#1

Does anyone know how or if you can add a foot switch to control the Axminster AMT “Dremel”? And if so where a one can be purchased if not from Ax?

The ability to turn it off and on without having to reach to the unit would make carving much easier and probably safer.

Hi, I use a plain on / off foot switch similar to the Proxon FS switch available from Axminster with the Proxon mini jig saw because it is difficult to get to the on / off hand switch if I need to stop mid cut, I also use it on other hand held power tools such as the Dremel, the difference is mine has a standard UK 240v 3 pin trailing socket instead of the Euro socket, I sure a competent person could change the socket.
