    We build a lot of large pumping systems for use all over the world and to me 50Hz is essentially "diet" power.

    I wouldn't be too sure I am sure there are people more expert on the subject here who could chime in but I think the red may have simply been "red lead" which from what I understand was a lead...

    Jim,

    I think I like that idea other than the cost of getting a large enough piece of aluminum to make it practical.
