    Hello everyone,
    My name is Kathie and I live in rural Nevada - yes, most of it is rural, but Gardnerville seems more so. Either way, I have been scrolling for about 5 years off and on. With school and a family, my time seems to be crunched. I have recently gotten back into it and am enjoying myself once again. I really enjoy your site and reading all of the advice. I use a DeWalt 788.
    Nice to meet you all,

              Glad you found us, and hopefully you'll find and make the time to get in front of your saw and make some saw dust! And then share with us the fruits of your labor!

                Kathie, welcome aboard. I think we are all addicts of the scrollsaw here. So jump in and show your work, ask your questions. Oh and probably teach some of us a thing or two. Steve

                  I was able to have a (relatively) peaceful weekend and had time to cut out two puzzles for a friend's children. One is completed and the other still needs the last coat of paint. I took the patterns out of the Scroll Saw Puzzles book and had a lot of fun with them. My first puzzle cut was the wizard in SSW&C, so these two added to my experience. I had a lot of fun and will post pics as soon as this last one is done. Thanks for the encouragement!!

                    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.

                    The reason for the smoke is incorrect wiring, posible melted insulation between motor windings and motor frame.

                    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...
