  • My 2nd project.

    You guys are right. This is addicting. Now that I've had a little practice I'm going to hold off until my BB plywood from Sloan's comes. My wife actually likes my first 2 pieces and told me they were hers, I couldn't give them to my mother or anybody else. I told her that was fine and when I have better ones on nicer wood, I would give them to my mother.

    I'm anxious for the wood and some new blades. I don't even know what kind of blades I'm using right now because they came with the used saw. All I know is for the outside I used a wider pin end skip tooth and the insides I used a plain end thinner skip tooth. Talk about a scare when one breaks though. It wakes you up.

    By the way, I wish more scrollers would post their work here for us newbies to enjoy, or maybe you are but I'm looking in the wrong place.

    Happy sawing everyone and thanks to everyone for their help, even if you didn't know you provided it. I read dozens of these posts before I ever started and learned a lot that way.

    You are doing remarkably well. This swan is a really nice design, I like it. Where is that pattern from? I think you are doing great so far, all your lines turn out pretty even and uniform, you did great! Actually though, that swan looks more like a loon to me though ! Dale

                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...
