  • Hello from the Fox Valley

    Just joined on 3-25-06, already have two questions posted, seems to be alot of really good info here, I'm looking forward to reading and learning more about scrolling. I've been scrolling for about 8 years I enjoy doing fretwork mostly, many things end up as gifts, for family, friends, and have recently donated two pendalum clocks to my daughters high school fund raising event, When I figure out how to post pics. I will. Thanks in advance for the warm welcome,

    Wow, I just joined too-we live in Greenville. But I am just getting started in scrolling. I have learned so much reading the boards and the articles. I am still working on my first piece and my 11 yr old daughter has laid claim to it when it is finished.
    Glad to see another fox valley member!

      Welcome all Wisconsinites. I think we outnumber all the other states represented in here. Carrie.... give your daughter that first project, under the condition she in turn makes you something on the scrollsaw (with your guidance of course). It will be a great bonding time!

          Without the complete schematic it is hard to know what is correct.
          That said, it is a multispeed blower that obviously has a controller board. That board varies the power to the motor. By doing what you did you bypassed that. You put power across the low and high windings. If any thing connecting...

          If he connected to red and black and the motor spun wouldn't that indicate the motor is grounded? Without connecting the white the circuit isn't complete and the motor should not spin.

          You mentioned connecting power to the red & and black wire. Did you do anything with White wire? Per the lable on the motor the black wire is high the Red is low. White common...

I suspect it's because it was almost completely clogged at the intake, but I wanted to test it out electrically to make sure. The motor housing says 120v, so not know hardly anything about electricity...
