    My 1940 10EE will throw the flat belt if I try and make too heavy a cut. I've found that I can adjust the rear idler pulley with a bit of a bias towards the tailstock and it will help.

    Completely irrelevant. The tires for this bandsaw have a rib to fit into the slot in the wheel, the tires you linked to are flat.

    I am looking for some 18 ga. wire for an application where the wire will see a lot of flex. Two wires will run from an entry door into the jamb, and there will be 1/16-3/32" clearance when the door...

    Often there is an additional transformer located inside the headstock motor bay, right below the contactor shelf but on the inside.

    However, multiply that number of configurations by at least two...

    OK, LOTS of opinions. I have some caps that would reduce the starting capacitance to less than half, so I will try one. I am also building a new motor mount so that there more resistance to the...
  17. Can I soften the start of a single phase motor by reducing the start capacitance?

    I have a Baldor 1.5 hp single phase motor (series 35E01-1274) with dual capacitors, that starts up with a lot of torque. I would like to slow down the start, make it softer. I don't know what the...

    Asking for the physical location of the transformer is probably not the right approach, there is a lot of variation in how these machines were wired. Better approach: get the wiring diagrams for...
  21. Does an RPC always use capacitors, or are there other options?

    I've built several RPC's using capacitor banks and an idler motor. However, there is a 10HP RPC for sale on OWWM that has no capacitors. How does it work? Does it generate the third leg as...

    John, it is a model E, but it predates all of the hoists in the current manual. Instead of a solid state reversing switch, it has a centrifugal switch with two contacts. When the motor is started,...
