A tool that can operate on 110v can run on 120v. The UK tool may be a 50Hz machine, while NA is 60Hz, but that shouldn't matter. You will probably have to change or adapt the cord cap.

Hi BBG Carpentry,

It won't last as long due to the Hz difference. I have full set of tools at home in Ireland but had to re-buy them when I came out here to Canada.

The Hz makes no difference in tool like. It just runs faster on 60hz. I have plenty of 50hz motors running on 60hz in my shop.

The higher frequency makes little difference for three-phase motors, but it can (though not always) cause problems for single-phase. I'm pretty sure the bulk of Darcy's (WarnerConst) experience in this regard is with three-phase.
