I got a couple of those Harbor Freight pedal switches and I also found something I have been wanting to try for some time. I think I mentioned somewhere that I wanted to mix some beeswax and carnauba wax for the purpose of burnishing.

Well I found a product with the wax pre-mixed in paste form. It is from England and it is named Antiquax. It is designed for wood care.

I tried some Antiquax on some scrap leather today with Ivan's machine and I got a very very nice glossy burnish. The carnauba lets me put extra pressure on the leather without burning it as the hard carnauba wax has a higher melting point... about 40 degrees higher than beeswax.

I like Ivan's wax but I also like the Antiquax which is a softer paste. I applied it with my fingertip. It's nice to have several options.

for any one who's purchased this product and does not want to mess with the wiring, Harbor freight tools sells the pictured foot switch for about $10 bucks.Daniel

I know this is a old thread but I was hopping someone could confirm that the harbor freight peddle will work here? I was thinking of using it for a similar application but decided agent it as it states that it can not be used or motors that use a soft start capacitor, like the one shown.

if youre talking about a foot operated speed control, they will only work with a motor that has brushes....a brushless motor might work for a while, but, you'll burn it up
