I have a DC17 I am trying to convert to 240 volts.
I found that the brushbar motor from a DC21/23 motorhead is similar to a DC17 one! Just the spindle and cooling fan are different and thus will not fit. I can't find a way to get the spindle off.
I was wondering what would happen if I get the armature from the DC17 (120V) and put it into the 240V one? Would it still blow up or run okay? I can't seem to think what makes the two motors have their voltage limits
Any help would be muchly appreciated
