    No, I would say that it is a desperate act. You will probably ruin the wire coils in your contactors first and then they will disconnect and save the motor.

    Are you referring to those small bricks that are 2.5 x 1.5 inches? Ganging 3 together on a hefty heat sink will take up some room. And will be a experiment that

    I use 4-40 or 2-56 button head allen screws.

    It wouldn't be a bad idea if you could cover all the controls with a hood held by magnets. A box with a door is better.
