    What you are trying to do here is going to be ugly and it's not the wire nut's fault.

    If the 8 gauge circuit is already run, extend it with more 8 gauge wire.

    If it isn't already run, then...

    Run the motor unloaded at 230V. Run it again at 460V.

    Whichever voltage results in the lowest current draw is the correct voltage. (or, run the motor near full load and look for the lowest current...

    I'm not sure if I have pictures of it but I picked up a 5000 pound Timesaver and didn't have a big enough forklift. I used two offset pieces of rectangular tubing to lift it off of the truck with a...

    I've removed an engine in a similar orientation.

    Of course I removed the rest of the vehicle around it first.

    There is a simple valving arrangement that applies full pressure to both sides of the cylinder at once to rapidly extend it. I would configure two synchronized cylinders to pull an upper shear blade...

    I don't know anything specific about that DRO, but character LCDs are all pretty much plug and play. Just get one with an LED backlight and a resistor.

    I have reversed a single phase motor (starts and runs on the same capacitor) by replacing the capacitor with an equal reactance inductor. The motor ran hotter but that was largely from the fan it was...

    Looking at the way the threads end at the bolt does suggest that the blank was formed with stepped radii. I was under the wrong impression that all rolled bolts have a reduced diameter between the...

    I'm looking at the unthreaded portion of the fastener. It matches the OD of the threads on all of the bolts I've seen from Fastenal and Tractor Supply, along with various online sources.

    That's...

    Have you considered using some sort of plastic?

    Sounds like it could solve all of your problems if the application can tolerate it.

    I keep hearing that yet every bolt I order or buy from anywhere is always cut. Are rolled threads only available in super high volumes or something?

    Fortunate. We're a small 3 man show. Usually only get about 20 to 30 pounds of bolts per week.

    A dumb way to check for supply line noise is to put a low value capacitor in series with a speaker across the line. Listen for beeps, woops, kshshs, or screes.

    Did you check if there is a metric washer that would fit your bolt tighter?

    For example:
    12mm on 1/2"
    5/16" on 8mm
    6mm on 1/4"
    14mm on 9/16"
    9mm on 3/8"
    7/16" on 11mm

    Also worth considering what the counterweight is sitting on. If it's a fairly small area compared to the size of the tank it may just rip up through the tank.

    I used to do it all of the time with no issues. Typically 1/4-20 or 10-32 on 10 gauge to 1/4" steel.
