    Hi all,

    I want to make a mechanical wood cutting device powered by a second hand 12v windsceen wiper motor, I

    I would like to know if it is ok to do this with a 12v lead acid battery charger ? I am in Australia on 240 V power

    The battery charger I have is made by yk and on the front says

    YK -c1212 Automatic charger
    12v lead acid battery

    There is a charging indicator light and a power on of switch.

    On the back
    240 v 280 W

    There are Two fuses , above these it says

    15A 32 V 4at 250V

    I gave it a try and it ran the motor,but would just like to know is it safe ?
    I would want to run it for an hour or two at a time, or is ther another way this should be done ?

    regards Rob

    problem solved.

    I found out today there are auto stores that sell power supplies that do the job,
    and that battery chargers are not the way to go.

    cheers Rob
