Default electric start backplate

hey i was just wondering if it is possible to start a a vx18 engine that has the electric start backplate with a dremmel style rotary tool, i need a new backplate and its cheaper to get the rotostart back then the pull start so it would be kool if i could start it with my rotarty tool, just wondering THANKS

I bet it would, althought the dremel tools don't really have torque they have speed.

yeah I doubt the dremel would have the torque or speed to turn the motor over quickly enough. I could be wrong though.

Supprising actually the more I think about it because my rotostart doesn't appear to offer a whole lot of torque either.

well i could always just use mydewall 18volt drill with a bit on the end if my dremmel doesnt work, but how cool would it be if my dremmel works, that thing will get to spend even more time with me

I know my SH 28 needs to be turned counterclockiwise with the the rotostart, dremels dont usually offer reverse.
