« Part 1: I need help to identify a component on speed control circuit board Part 2 of Drum Sander speed control repair series no next part

I can’t express how thankful I am for all the help in getting my sander’s conveyor running again.

Living in the middle of nowhere, I was unable to find a vendor for the bridge rectifier within an hour of here so I ordered one (actually two) from China for $.99 plus $1.98 shipping. We received them yesterday. My husband soldered one on the circuit board this morning; we reinstalled the speed control; and it runs like new.

We’re both do-it-yourselfers who will try anything, but it certainly helps to have expert advice to do it. Your willingness to help us through this is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Always nice to hear good news like this, and it didn’t cost you an arm and a leg.
