    Hi, Folks!

    Well...not THAT old, but a newbie to scrolling, per se--just got hold of a Ryobi 16" compliments of my brother-in-law.

    Not a newbie to working with wood; I carved my share of fancy scrolls on gunstocks, etc. using a Paragrave tool. Even did some carving of emu and turkey eggs--very delicate. But I'm loving this new thing and it's very relaxing to me.

    I confess that I'll probably lurk more than contribute, but if I have something to say or ask, I won't be shy.

          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...
