    PM has seen this, and not long ago.

    Another PM member repaired his one that had previously had a less that satisfactory PRIOR repair done before he acquired the 10EE.

    I was able to ship him one...

    You could end up teasing a cute MD about her always wanting to go barefoot on the fine carpet she had in her office, indication of a "sensual" nature, and..

    Nevermind.

    So long ago I can't...

    I had cleared "REFRAD" to "terminal leave", back from 'Nam August of 1968 at Defense Depot Tracey in CA. Still in uniform as I had more accumulated leave on the books than time left to serve. Why...

    No Fine Way!

    Fools and feel-goods will ALWAYS outnumber sane folk in a major shiddy.

    That's whom it is that elects Dumbasscraps to begin with. That's who will re-elect them.

    Safe bet that...

    Pass.

    I had only gotten back into my MG one's restoration about a month ago, and am not close to sorting the electrical side of it yet. The one with SSD drive is not relevant. Single-phase critter.

    Nothing to do with rioters. Cruisers were bought by cheap-ass Governments, and from the lowest bidder who would put the most money into the Politician's pocket, and the least into good air-con and...

    It's all a grand game. Having enjoyed the looting, they'll vote the looter-lie-bore-alls back in. The productive will flee the cities.

    Once the lines are stark enough? China gets to NUKE those...

    I have. Several. But "playing"? More to that, taking the most successful two as contrast and ignoring those known to have failed at it:

    - One, only to the extent that he HAD to play in order to...

    My age, that could be true of a bottle of whiskey.. or even decent underwear..

    6-2 "WG" one hopes?

    THIS.. is a major part of why I say we do not "own" a 10EE.

    We are its "minders".

    Just the most-recent of guardians on their now many-human-generations-long duty roster!

    The GOOD news? The...

    I've been privileged to have called many of Hong Kong's Harilela family close friends over long years.

    One of their several core biznesses, prior to War Two, was using foot-treadle machines to sew...

    Pence? Helluva lot smarter than anything the senile-dementiated brain-rot Dems have handy.

    Which is a damned shame. We'd be better-off they were NOT so FUBAR. Not a good thing, and right MESSY,...

    Good catch!

    Sewing machines used similar goods even before China had electricity.

    Tons of that stuff out there, used for "real" Pilot-training simulators, kids computer games and such as well.

    Sounds like a "troll" to me?

    :)

    Fuses should actually be outlawed for polyphase power distribution in NFPA /"the Code".. by this late date, 141 years since the first circuit-breaker patent -...

    NOT... as easy for y'all with "Big Boy" trucks and trailers.. but right there is a "fundamental truth"!

    Dad.. shredded the multi-ply factory-specified tires off an Airstream 31-foot "International...

    1972 was it? Nearly fifty years gone, all of that. Lot of it was Bob's "treasure", not mine!

    We did that manual on one lone IBM Selectric. White-rubber cemented each page four-up, shot it with a...

    Truly.

    The rate we usta-bee worker-bees, NOW relegated to hobbyshits in a hard-driving CNC wurld run our Old Iron?

    Red Brass would probably "last a long time", too!

    :D

    Thanks!

    "Most days.." it was shelter that didn't leak TOO damned badly. Water that tasted NASTY of chlorine.. but wuddn' kill yah. Ugly drainage, bridges, and culverts that didn't fail. Roads that...

    Horsehit. My taxes, all-up total, US + UK, had hit over 65%, as-of 1994. I simply retired. Age 49. No NEED of any "John Galt" drama. Just stop. Go enjoy life. What was the point of working, if mostly...

    The third leg is "still there" if a load-side breaker with only two poles trips and the upstream source RPC or any other, has NOT.

    So "yes, please". 3-pole. Common-trip. Use the Unit-mount ones...

    If you need to control 5 HP .. or LESS.. don't even waste yer time MESSING with single-phase goods.

    Proper 3-Phase can be had cheaply.

    That should do fine for a long time, but...

    IF.. you find you have to make a new one someday because heavy/long use has 'lobed" the taper? Give a thought to using 4XXX pre-hard.

    Used to be a stock part, "back in the day". It may still be, some niche supplier.
