    One more time. In the third picture of the first set of pictures, there are two wires that look brown or reddish brown with push on terminals on the right side of the picture. As they lay there, they...

    Rex TX

    "I haven't waded through this whole thread, but I'm sure someone has already quoted Robert Heinlein on the subject."

    Not yet, which quote? He had a lot of good ones.

    It is definitely reversable, probably by switching the two brown (more or less) wires on the right side of the third picture. Disconnect them and check continuity between them. They should read very...

    I made reed switches for a couple of years. I don't know how you could make a ring that would reliably close one mounted in a pistol grip. I can think of various configurations that would work, but...

    Right. I used 1/10 amp as the criterion. Oddly, higher currents can be survivable because they make the chest muscles clamp down on the heart and when they are released, the heart starts contracting...

    I did some tests on electric shocks, at a lower voltage, naturally. In a case like that, 120 volts, it can be fatal but usually not. It is mainly a function of skin resistance, which is mainly the...

    The tachometer shown is an electric one. The first thing to do is see if the original generator is still there, assuming that your lathe also had a tach. Trying to enlarge the picture goes to a site...

    I have often said that August 9, 1974 was the greatest moment for our system. Never mind who was right or wrong or whether he deserved it, The most powerful man in the world in command of the Army,...

    The Webster Groves police vetoed the idea of arming teachers on the grounds that if an officer saw a person not in uniform waving a gun, he would likely shoot immediately.

    I have contemplated a...

    Pai's logic is that his big business buddies will have all the bandwidth they want at the expense of us peasants.

    Thanks for the advice. I ran the test and right now am running around 100KBPS down. A lot of things time out before they are loaded. I had a Samsung Galaxy S phone with TMobile but they shut it down...

    OT Has your internet slowed?

    Since Ajit Pai took over the FCC, my internet service has slowed to the point that some applications never download. I mentioned it to someone last night and he had the same problem but thought it...

    Have you looked at the cover plate over the connections. Instructions for reversing are often on its inside. Is there a centrifugal switch? When it starts, after a second is there a click and change...

    Did you read all of my post or the related ones? The discussion at that point had drifted to safety and accidents caused by children, which is another aspect of firearms injuries, not about mass...

    I have no memory of where I saw this, but it makes a good point. Bussing students, mostly black, around to schools was intended to give them an opportunity for a better education. A black man was...

    I would definitely go along with firearms safety training for all grade schoolers. As a teen, I had several scary incidents, all with boys who had little or no firearm experience. In a case about...

    So who is orchestrating all this? What is the purpose? Lone gunman are killing a bunch of people then being killed or committing suicide. They must have a strong motive to do something they know will...

    First show the connections. Second, is there a capacitor mounted on it? It may be a repulsion-induction motor, in which there may be a set of brushes under the end bell Doug asked you to remove. They...

    There is a neutral position on an ELSR switch that will keep it off. Switching it to forward or reverse will allow it to start. That is the rotary switch on the tail end of the bed.

    I have found that the hardest part of designing a new machine and getting it into service is not the technology but keeping the customer's head straight. They can understand design and fabrication...

    You are overlooking a point that should be obvious. People don't usually change their views that much and some of the posters here must have brains that are 30% calcium carbonate, but they die off...

    Sure, it will run on two if you pick the right two, but at reduced power. The armature is being energized four times per revolution, twice positive and twice negative. Note also that the brushes are...

    Worse, I got my first 1911 when I was 19 YO and have owned them most of my life, the point being that I know exactly what one looks like. A friend has an airsoft pistol that I cannot tell from a real...

    The guy got the brush on backwards. I didn't think to mention it since most motors have brushes that can only be put in one way. That seriously retimed the brush. Fortunately it was the top brush so...
