A few weeks ago I did a google search for home made RPC designs. I read one thread, and I think it was here on PM, in which the fellow went to excruciating detail on his RPC. One feature that stood out was that in order to make brackets for his capacitors he sawed up some pipe and individually welded brackets on to them. The RPC had start capacitors because the builder did not want to mess with a pull string or an auxiliary starter motor.
Is anybody familiar with this thread? If so, could you post a link to it. I wish I had bookmarked it at the time, but now I can't find it.
