I recently got a March Pump 815 (with a cord with a plug). I have seen a few toolbox builds and was gonna try something like that myself. I had been looking at http://brewing.lustreking.com/gear/portapump.html specifically as it was pretty simple.
Next I wired each of the black wires to the gold screws on the switch, both of the green wires to the green screw on the switch, and tied both white wires together with a wire nut
Is there any reason I couldn't just skip the "use an extension cord" part, and just cut the included cord a few inches from the pump, wire it like above? Not that extension cords are really expensive or anything, I was just curious.
Also, how does one remove the Part 14 from the motor.. hex key?
Thanks for the time.
