I just purchased a Champion blower at a antique shop.  I do not believe they knew what it was.  This one has a variable speed motor attached but the wire is cut a few inches from the motor.  My questions are:  Approx how old is this blower and where can I get a variable speed control for this one?  I only paid 20.00 and everything turns smoothly so I think I did ok.  Thanks

Here are some pictures.  Any idea about the age of this unit?  what about where I may get a variable speed switch?  Thanks Click image for larger version - Name: IMG_4346.JPG, Views: 18, Size: 237.33 KB Click image for larger version - Name: IMG_4347.JPG, Views: 18, Size: 162.27 KB Click image for larger version - Name: IMG_4348.JPG, Views: 19, Size: 256.56 KB Click image for larger version - Name: IMG_4349.JPG, Views: 16, Size: 206.83 KB

Looks like you can get a speed control from centaurforge.com

Yep, you did good Gunyhwy3.

I think you can use an old sewing machine foot control as well. Don't worry about a shop. Lot's of folks forge out side. Just get started collecting you tools and forging things.
