Folks,

I have a Bux-Milwaukee mag drill that I bought off of local Craigslist for $200 a few months ago, and I'm in the process of rebuilding/restoring it before I put it to use to drill the holes for my DRO scale mounts. Unfortunately, it has a broken "magnet on" indicator light, and I'm debating what I should do in the process of replacing the cracked and broken old wiring on it. Does anyone have one of these in good condition? Or the manual for the magnetic base? Any help in locating either would be *greatly* appreciated.

I'll post pictures in this thread tonight after work.

Thanks,
Will

I own a Milwaukee mag drill , but have never had it not work for me. The prior owners was a rental outfit , the said it would drop off when drilling I beams vertically. But only way I could get it to let go was too much pulling pressure on the handles. Not sure if I can help but old wiring can be coated with liquid electric tape or silicone dried before using . If the wires are accessible shrink tubing will work.
