A freak accident happened with the drill press. The spinning bit caught a piece of ply which caught the main cable and eventually the main cable snapped from it's housing. No injury happened!

Now I thought I can open the housing and make a fresh connection. A pic might help.

i am unable to open the box which houses the wires. There are 4 screws but removing them doesn't move anything.

Can anyone help please.

Thank you

Andrew.

You can see that black box with 2 wires. Does anyone know how to open that box please?

Many thanks

Andrew.

Looking at it I would also think that by removing the 4 screws the box should come straight off. Have you got a close up of the box

Hi Derek. That's what I thought. Removing the 4 screws doesn't seem to do anything. After removing all the 4 screws the box is as rigid as it was before unscrewing. I will get a closer shot later. The box also has a fuse. I even tried to remove that!

it is just those 4 screws and then it should come free. It might have a rubber gasket which is 'sticking' it in place. A bit of prying and it should give up the fight.

That was my thinking but wanted a better photo of the box first just to be sure. A gentle tap with the palm of the hand should release it.
