This is something I am looking for - I think! It looks like you wrote this several years ago - have you had any safety issues or would you have done something differently? I have a variable speed cordless drill that I would like to convert to allow me to just switch it on a energize it to high speed. I don't want to hold the trigger in to keep it going or get it up to full speed. Any suggestions or help would be appreciated!!
