Good afternoon. I have been reading this site for a while and have always been able to find my answers. Today, I need to ask the community for an answer. First, what I have and what I am trying to accomplish: I have an old Duro band saw that I swapped the AC motor out for a DC motor so I can use the saw for metal instead of wood. The motor is a treadmill motor that, after some trial and error with the built in safety features, needs a different controller that what it came with. I ordered a MC60 controller and wired it up using a b10k potentiometer that I had laying around. I know the board has the soft start safety feature, and I am OK with that. My issue is that the motor only starts turning when the pot is turned up between 1/3 and 1/2 of the way up, so it starts spinning faster than I need. Is this an issue because I am using a 10k pot? And as a side note, I can follow directions pretty well, but electrical theory is not my strong suit. Talk to me like I am new to all of this. Thanks in advance!
