    Not necessarily.

    Check the invoice and their shipping policy. Look carefully for the "magic words", which are something on the order of "orders shipped FOB our facility".

    I've had epoxy in some gouges in a lathe bed for probably 10 years, and nothing has let go yet. It was not any special type, just an ordinary hardware store clear epoxy, IIRC.

    This is a case where posting the schematic would be helpful.

    It seems a bit goofy, if I were doing the thing, I would be tempted to do the regulation on the primary side, which would take care...

    If you have actual pits, and not just areas that are worm=n low, then filling with epoxy is good.

    The idea is not to build up a way surface, but rather to fill up the pits with something that is...

    The original plan, since the germans were not stupid, and understood the V1 was vulnerable, was to send them over in huge lots simultaneously. That way good numbers would get through. It basically...

    That is quite a decent idea. And doing that would potentially allow using buffers on the input if that is still needed.

    This assumes the input network is reasonably simple and can be changed in...

    It sounds as if the coil type sensors are ungrounded because they are being connected in the "various ways" that would not work right as op-amp outputs.

    In that case, can you "break into" the...

    There is the direct "too fast" where the "on" time is too short as you describe.

    The "speed" of switching can mean the actual speed of the switching event, or it can mean the number of times per...

    The simplest method would be to use an opamp on each input, with the gain set at unity gain, and then use the outputs of those, which will be quite low impedance, as the input to your network.

    Motor impedance, composed of inductance and resistance, limits turn-on surge. A motor with a low impedance will have a hellacious turn-on surge,potentially damaging to the motor. But, a low...

    The inductor, assuming its value is reasonable compared to the motor inductance, will simply "block" much of the high frequencies. That tends to reduce the peak voltage of the...

    A couple added comments.

    The crosslide or compound indeed could be moving side to side, which is "usually" a gib (jib) adjustment. A row of screws along the side adjusts this.
